I have lived in Odessa 47 years, and the "Movie" didn't portray the truth of the football fanatics that live in Odessa. The movie didn't even show how the east side of town separated itself from the two older schools(which neither were even seen or mentioned in the movie). Family's were moved to the east side and players were recruted to play for Permian. Refs were paid off(it was so obvious), boundries were changed for the schools, but where it benifited Permian. "Sure" you can have a winning history when you pay for it. I thought the movie really sucked, it could have been a much better movie with all the truth in it.
