Continuity mistake: In the eighth game of the season, a scoreboard shows the score with about 3:08 to go in the game as 43-12, but next the announcer says they lost 35 to 12. It occurs right before Chapter 7 4:31 minutes.

Continuity mistake: In the final game, after halftime, Texas State goes for a fake punt. In one shot the ball is snapped to Jason Bateman who runs with it, and we see Mandylor begin running behind him. In the next shot, however, Bateman is still running, but Mandylor is going through the motions of a punt.

Other mistake: In the end of the final game. TSU runs a fake field goal which results in a TD pass as time expires. The final score, TSU wins by 1. The flaw: Being down 5 points with seconds remaining would never have a team line up for a FG. The defending team would know you're not kicking an FG since you would still lose.

Suggested correction: The last play of the game during regulation was a fake sweep that resulted in a TD catch by Blake. This made it 20-21. TSU ran a fake FG on the extra point attempt. An extra point FG is only worth 1-point, which would have tied the game. By running a fake FG a scoring a TD, TSU scored 2-points, making the final score 22-21.

Character mistake: Flat Top should have numerous roughing the passer calls against him in the final game. Many times he ran into Blake long after he threw the ball, but the ref never called a roughing the passer call.

Trivia: One of fictitious Texas State University's (TSU) opponents is Southwest Texas Bobcats (SWT), which was a real school. In 2003, SWT changed their name to Texas State University at San Marcos (they kept the Bobcat nickname). Eventually, when the other schools in the Texas State University System didn't change their names, "at San Marcos" was dropped and they are known just as Texas State University (TSU).
