Continuity mistake: During the playoff game, while the Titans were going into the locker room at half time, the scoreboard and announcer said the Titans were down 10 to 0. At the end of the game, with enough time for 1 more play, the announcer said the Titans were down 7 to 3.
Visible crew/equipment: When Coach Boone is about to go to Coach Yoast's house to apologize for accepting the head coaching job, you can see in Yoast's house through a window from outside, before Boone knocks on the door and see little Sheryl sitting down. If you look closely you can see the camera man's reflection in the window.
Visible crew/equipment: When the truck's headlights turn on just before it hits Gary's car, the shadow of the camera can be seen on the street.
Other mistake: When the titan band was playing in the title game and we see a shot of them the trombone player does not move his slide to the right place for the notes that are played.
Continuity mistake: When little Cheryl kicks that guys she's defending her father against, the guy says to her father that it's okay, it's alright and he puts out his hand and he's a few feet away from the father. All of a sudden he's right next to the father when the camera moves to their faces.
Factual error: Towards the end of the movie when the Titans are playing for the championship, Petie grabs up a fumbled ball and runs with it. When he stands up from being tackled, watching TV back in his hospital room, Gary yells Petie's name and the nurse comes to Gary's room to see if everything is all right. When she opens the door to Gary's hospital room, she opens it into the hallway. There isn't a hospital in the world where the patients door opens into the hallway. They all open inward to the patient's room.Pjpodemski
Continuity mistake: Just before Gary's mother is announced at the final game against Marshall, a shot of Gary in the hospital reveals that his face is cut badly from the car accident. After his mother is announced and a shot of the stadium crowd shown, a shot of Gary's face a moment later reveals no such cuts.JW Pepper
Factual error: In the championship game, the Titans kick off to start the first half, then they kick off to start the second half. Teams kick off the first or the second, not both.
Blue Stanton: Coach we need a water break, we been out here all day.
Coach Boone: What did you say?
Blue Stanton: Said, we need a water break.
Coach Boone: A water break? Water is for cowards. Water makes you weak. Water is for washing blood off that uniform and you don't get no blood on my uniform, boy you must be outside your mind! We are going to do up-downs, until Blue is no longer tired, and thirsty.
Trivia: Throughout the movie, it is implied that the Titans are underdogs, and the final game is depicted as being very close, with the Titans winning on the last play of the game. In reality, the Titans won the state championship by a score of 27-0 and held the opposing team to minus 5 yards total offense. They also finished the season ranked second in the nation.
