quote:I think you're confusing Buddy with Jimmy Chitwood.
I just figured that Buddy didn't want to be the sole focus of the team. He didn't want the his teammates to be upset with him if a coach rode him all year to be "the guy". After watching the coach he realized that the coach was more about the team than the individual and that the coach didn't care what anyone else thought. Buddy saw how the town was against the coach for no real reason and he decided he wanted to play for him (plus the town was saying Buddy would play if the coach went and Buddy knew that wasn't the case)
That was the reason I came up with anyway.
I have long considered this the #1 Sports genre movie.
quote:Unbelievable to me. Delete the stupid kiss scene first.
It is hard to believe they couldn't find 2 other minutes to delete. But I guess there was probably another scene about Buddy going to play for another school and they figured this deleted scene wouldn't work w/o that one, but that is still better than an extra player showing up out of nowhere, IMO.
Its the best sports movie ever IMO.
