Jack Lengyel: Don, are you married? President Dedmon: Yes sir, 25 years this year. Jack Lengyel: Now, I am going to bet... that you didn't propose over the phone. President Dedmon: Ummm, no.

  • The film Nate is watching in the cinema when he receives the news of the crash is 'Kelly's Heroes' - a film about a man leading a loosely, on-the-spot assembled team to victory, somewhat parallel to the main story of this film.
  • During training camp, coach Lengyl tells one player to "Head slap the shit out of him" if the opposing player goes for his knees. The NCAA and NFL banned the head slap in the mid 1970's because of the head injuries it caused.
  • The film premiered in Huntington, WV, on December 12, 2006, followed by a Hollywood premiere on December 14. Both used a green carpet, the Marshall University school color, instead of the traditional red. Stars in attendance included: Basil Iwanyk, director McG, writer Jamie Linden, Matthew McConaughey, Matthew Fox, Anthony Mackie, Arlen Escarpeta, Kate Mara, and Dalton Polston. Real-life coaches Jack Lengyel and Red Dawson also attended.
  • The name of Marshall's winning play against Xavier was "213 Bootleg Screen".
  • In the 1970's, Marshall played their home football games at Fairfield Stadium, which was demolished in early 2004. Herndon Stadium in Atlanta was used as the stand-in for Fairfield Stadium.
