Due to NCAA sanctions, the Texas State University Fightin' Armadillos must form a football team from their actual student body, with no scholarships to help, to play their football schedule. With fewer players than most teams, the makeshift team must overcome obstacles that the best teams in the country couldn't deal with. Using a 34 year old quarterback, a female placekicker and a gang of misfits, Ed "Straight Arrow" Genero must take his team to play the number one Texas Colts. Written by
This was a very funny sports (specifically American Football) movie where a college football team gets heavily sanctioned by such things as recruitment violations and has to get a new team from its student body and recruits its quarterback as a 34-year-old farmer in Scott Bakula. I will admit that there was hardly anything new in this formula and cliché-ridden film, and you will probably be able to figure out what happens in the final scene once it arrives, but you will have a fun time getting there. I absolutely loved Rob Schneider's role as the sportscaster. The coaches, players, and the lady professor were all great, and the movie was hilarious throughout. I actually attended the filming of the final scene at UNT. That was fun. You will not regret watching this movie.
