Marshall coach recalls sadness, triumph - College football - MSNBC.com
This weekend, while fighting the damn bronchitis, I went to see We are Marshall in the theater in Charleston. I was quite impressed by the movie. It was done quite well, with no condescension toward Appalachia (something I'd worried about), and emotion without sappiness. I'd highly recommend it. At the end, I was wondering what was accurate and what wasn't. This interview with Lengyel answered my questions. Yes, the final play wasn't the same as in the history boooks, but I think you'll agree that it provided a needed symmetry for the movie.
