The predicament of the fictional Texas State football team is based on the scandal surrounding another Texas college, Southern Methodist University. SMU had been placed on probation three times in the 1980s for repeated recruitment violations, such as giving monetary enticements to players and their families. In 1987, SMU was punished under the Repeat Violator Rule, better known as the "death penalty." All football was canceled and scholarships were revoked for 1987, and only away games were allowed in 1988, although the school canceled the 1988 season anyway. The team was refielded in 1989 with an all-tryout squad. The Mustangs did not have a winning season until 2009. See more »

Very funny film, and even though it was the same tired old formula of misfits winning against the best team it was still entertaining to watch. Scott Bakula, and Sinbad made it for me and I can't believe I've only just watched it. If you like Quantum Leap then I guess you'd like this .
