We Are Marshall

Character mistake: When McConaughey and Fox are at West Virginia University to ask their coaches for help with their offense, McConaughey is shown talking while looking at his reflection in a football trophy. At first his reflection shows him talking out of the left side of his mouth, but then he quickly switches to talking out of the right side of his mouth as he does throughout the entire rest of the movie.

Character mistake: In the references to Xavier, the coach character and the announcer pronounce it "Ex-Zavier." It's pronounced "Zavier." Make this mistake at their games, and you would be booed out of the stadium.

Continuity mistake: The chalk marks on the football disappear between shots when the coaches are discussing how they need to simplify the offense. The coach wipes the chalk board off with his hands, the grabs the football. The chalk marks are there for a while, but then he throws the ball to the assistant coach and the chalk marks are suddenly gone.
