Corrected entry: When McConoughay is interviewing and shaking hands with his new coaching staff individually in his office, one of the coaches is introduced later in the movie as the head coach of West Virginia, Bobby Bowden.
Corrected entry: In the final game against Xavier, they refer to number 19 on Xavier, whose name is simply given as "Crawford", as "Xavier's All-American tailback" when he fields the kickoff. Tailback is simply another word for halfback, but he is playing wide receiver the rest of the game and is never at the halfback position (hence he has to be guarded by Nate Ruffin, the other team's ace cornerback). As a wide receiver, he would not be announced as a "tailback".
Corrected entry: In the scene where Dr. Dedmon is visiting with Jake Lengeyl he mentions that he has had "four months of complicated". With the crash happening in November, four months after would be February. The weather at Jakes house in Ohio was rather nice for February (or even March). The grass is green, trees are full of leaves. The weather outside should be like winter, not spring.
