Corrected entry: In the scene where Denzel Washington takes the team on a jog early in the morning, he takes them to the site of the battle of Gettysburg. Gettysburg is in Pennsylvania. If the camp was located in the south, it seems highly unlikely that the team would jog all the way up to Pennsylvania.
Corrected entry: The milk cartons they drink at football camp are the same milk cartons that I buy at school. I doubt that back in 1971 milk cartons had cartoons about the food groupies(yes, groupies) and health facts that weren't known back then, let alone web addresses on the bottom.
Corrected entry: In the first game against the Hawks, Petey forces a fumble after a reception and another player from the Titans picks it up and runs it into the wrong end zone for a touchdown. It would be a safety against the Titans.
Corrected entry: Groveton Highschool's mascot was a Tiger, not a Lion. They were the Groveton Tigers.
Corrected entry: In the scene in the beginning where Allan tells the team about the riot, he is in street clothes and the team is at practice. However, Allan is a part of the team (and all-city from his father), so why wasn't he suited up practicing?
Corrected entry: The little girl speaks with a Southern accent, but (assuming she's a native of Alexandria, Virginia) she would sound really strange; no one in Northern Virginia has a Southern accent. They also appear to live on a farm, but Alexandria is an urban area adjacent to downtown Washington D.C.Krista
Corrected entry: In the shot when the brick was thrown through Denzel's window, you can see that the window is shattered. Yet in the next scene as Denzel comes out of his house to see who threw the brick you can see that the window is perfectly fine with no cracks or breaks.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Cheryl tells coach Boone that he did a good job and ran a tough camp, Cheryl is wearing a Tommy Hilfiger shirt that would not be available before the early 90's. (00:41:30)
Corrected entry: As the players at camp are forced to get to know each other, Blue's roommate makes him listen to hillbilly music - the scene with "Does the term cruel and unusual punishment mean anything to you?." However, a few minutes earlier, after Coach Boone rearranges the bus riders into white/black seating pairs and tells them that the person they are riding with is the same person that they will be rooming with - we see them on the bus and the white hillbilly is not seated with Blue. He is seated with a much smaller black player. Blue is in the next seat singing "Ain't no mountain high enough."
Corrected entry: In the state championship game, the other team had the lead and the ball with about 17 seconds left. Instead of taking a knee and ensuring the victory, they run a play. After the fumble, the Titans get the ball back with 11 seconds left, and the announcer says they will only have time for one play. About 3 passes to the sideline and then another play for the touchdown could have been run.
Corrected entry: In the football game that Coach Boone takes Pete out and sits him on the bench, then Coach Yost puts Pete on defence, Pete's number on his jersey changes from 40 to 81 throughout the game.
