Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • During the training camp session, coach Lengyl tells one of the players to "Head slap the shit out of him" if the opposing player goes for his knees. In the mid 1970's, both the NCAA and NFL banned the head slap because of head injuries sub stained by players as a result of the move.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): When the tall player is recruited off the basketball court, the basketball hoop is a portable hoop with breakaway rims, as are the rims in Marshall's basketball gym. Breakaway rims were not invented until after 1981 when Darryl Dawkins (Philidelphia 76ers) broke two backboards in consecutive nights.
  • The Huntington, West Virginia premiere of the movie was on 12 December 2006 followed by the Hollywood premiere in California on 14 December 2006. Green carpet, Marshall University school color, was used for both premieres rather than the traditional red carpet. Those who attended the Huntington, WV premiere included producer Basil Iwanyk, director McG, writer Jamie Linden, Matthew Mcconaughey, Matthew Fox, Anthony Mackie, Arlen Escarpeta, Kate Mara, and Dalton Polston. Real life coaches Jack Lengyl and Red Dawson also attended the premiere.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): During the Morehead State game, when the Morehead player scores a touchdown the shot zooms in to the scoreboard reading 28. It then goes to a shot of the player in the end-zone and the scoreboard reads 22.
