Corrected entry: After Rudy gets to Notre Dame and he is volunteering to work on the grounds crew, he follows the head groundskeeper while he is walking behind a drop spreader. The groundskeeper never touches a lever to apply the fertilizer. Even when he stops to talk to Rudy, the spreader [if opened] would be pouring fertilizer on the field, effectively killing the grass.
Corrected entry: During the final game, two different Notre Dame players seem to be wearing the 1 jersey. One of them is a receiver who scores two of the Notre Dame touchdowns, and he is white. The other one is seen standing on the sidelines right next to Mateus during the scene when he starts the "Rudy!" chant, and he is black.
Corrected entry: In the finale game at the end of the movie when Rudy finally gets to play, the scoreboard shows Notre Dame listed first (on the left) with Georgia Tech second, on the right. The visiting team is always listed first in any sport, so the scoreboard shows they should be playing at Georgia Tech. (This was from a DVD viewing.)Amazing_G
Corrected entry: In the final game in which Rudy is allowed to dress, you will notice he is the only one on the team wearing a jersey without his last name on the back. Surely the team would have had time to have a jersey ready for him that had his name on it, rather than have an eyesore like that?
Corrected entry: At the end of the Georgia Tech game, when the Irish need to get the defense back on the field so Rudy can play, and a half-back pass play is called, the quarterback speaks to Jamie O'Hara, the Notre Dame half-back, played by Vince Vaughn, and doesn't call him "Jamie" but instead calls him by the actor's name, "Vinnie."
Corrected entry: Rudy continually checks the roster to see if he made the dress list. The captain of the team is Roland Steele; the first one to visit the coach about giving up his jersey for Rudy. Every time Rudy looks at the list he scans past the last names for "S" where you should see Steele, Roland. Steele doesn't appear on the dress list yet he dresses every game.
Corrected entry: When Rudy is wandering around the stadium trying to buy a ticket for the game, a little boy walks by in a Jerome Bettis jersy (#6). Bettis didn't come to Notre Dame until the 90's.
Corrected entry: I find it hard to believe that Rudy, who is such a fan of the team he recited a coach's pep talk verbatim as a kid, and could no doubt name every player on the roster, did not realize that the head groundskeeper once was a player.
Corrected entry: The movie took place in the 70s. Yet when the main character called home from school, he was using a telephone with touch-tone dials (Not invented yet).
Corrected entry: In the scene when Rudy returns back to the team practice after quitting the team, the whole team is on the field but none of them have shoulder pads under their uniform even though they are supposed to be practising.
