In the first act, two of the seven Hoosiers leave the team after Hackman takes over as coach. Shortly after, one of the players reluctantly returns, bringing the total to six. The seventh member, "Buddy," is never shown returning, yet halfway through the film you start seeing him again in the games.
Near the end of the film in the locker room prior to the championship game, Coach Dale makes reference to the players on the other team whose names are written on a chalkboard. If you look closely at the list of names, you'll see that they are the last names of the actors that portray the Hickory players (Poole, Schenk, Boyle, etc).
