- Sinner, sinner,

sinner, sinner!

- I said turn that

thing off and find him!

Whoa whoa whoa!

Oh there he is, there he is!

- Are you rolling?

Okay, let's get

the coach, come on.

- Okay, grab him, grab him!

Get his legs, get his legs!

- Excuse me, can you

give me some comment

on what happened tonight?

- Oh, grab his hands!

- Western Indiana

university's homecoming game.

It's been a stellar season

for the Timberwolves'


virtually certain to win the

Heisman trophy this year,

but all those dreams came

crashing down amid scandal-

ous rumors of sexual deviation

at this highly

religious university.

- As we reflect

on last night's events,

it is important to remember

that for every one verse

about god's grace and love

and mercy, compassion,

there are also two verses

about god's vengeance

and his wrath

and his hatred of sinners.

Smear the queer!

- And that may remind

you of an amazing gift,

a gift that he has given us.

Do you know it?

I would hope so.

- Amen.

- It's his

written word, the Bible,

our playbook for

life's challenges,

and like god, who was this...

- stop.

- This great architect,

we must follow the

examples of the Bible

to expose sin and sinners

for what they are.

- Look, there she is.

- We want to warn the nation,

let them know that...

- she's so weird.

- God is not going

to let this country get by,

and for that, we praise god.

- Nice backpack.

Did your moms get

that for you, Curtis?

- Curtis?

More like turd-is!

- Turd-is?

Oh my god, that's awesome.

Emily turd-is.

That's what we're gonna

call you from now on.

- Can I please pass?

- "Can I please pass?"

- Paula, Annabelle, report

to homeroom immediately.

- Yes, Mr. Thompson!

- Thank you.

- Turd-is.

Teacher's pet.

15 seconds left.

Third down, ball on the

pirates' 30 yard line.

- Klein

hoping to get some protection

from an offensive line

that's been beaten

consistently all evening.

Klein drops back.

Levy is open.

Oh ho ho!

- Too much air under that one.

All right, fourth down.

- Timberwolves down

to their last chance.

Nine seconds remain.

- Klein

facing very first loss ever

in an illustrious

college career.

- Jude Jude Jude Jude Jude Jude!

- All right, Klein,

trust your instincts.

Have faith.

You see an opportunity

you take it, all right?

- Ready, break!

- The game's in your hands.

- All

right, the coach giving Klein

some words of

encouragement there.

A lot's riding on this.

- So it

all comes down to this play.

Such a nail biter.

There's someone in motion there.

- Jude Jude Jude Jude

Jude Jude Jude Jude Jude!

Receiver in motion.

Now, two receivers on each side.

The crowd is on their feet!

- Now

this is what it's all about.

- All right, come on!

- Come on, you jealous?

- Aw, shut up.

- Klein surveying the field,

checking down.

Now the receiver in motion.

Klein is dropping back!

The pirates are flipping!

- Run it!

- Klein throws the ball down

and starts to run!

35, 30.

Sidestep to tackle!



- Go!

Come on!

Go go go go go!

Get the block, 15!

Klein's going for it!

Look at that!

- Pass to the five!


Oh my god!

I don't believe what I just saw.

Jude Klein just pulled

a proverbial victory

from a sure defeat.

- What a general on that field!

Wolves 20, pirates 19.

Her streak continues!

I would say this crowd's

got everything and more tonight.

- That's my girlfriend!

- Saint

Jude does her victory dance

to the delight of her fans.

- Well,

let's just hope the men's team

now can catch some

of Jude's fire.

Yesterday's loss puts

them at oh and four,

thanks to bill "butterfingers"

Bradley's three fumbles.

- Feel

the love on that field tonight!

The MVP is not stopping

tonight, no way.


That's the pros

calling you, girl!

- Do you have anything else

to confess in god's name?

- No, but there's something

else I want to talk about

if that's okay.

- Proceed, my child.

- I feel like I only

live for my fans,

like everybody only knows Jude

Klein, the football player,

not Jude Klein, the real person.

It just feels like

nobody knows who I am.

You know what I mean?

- Kelly!

- Hi, how are you?

- Like I'm going

through the motions.

Not really connected to it.

- I really like your dress.

- But you have to trust

in god's path for you,

and accept his journey for

you that's tailor-made.

Bless you, Jude.

You're gonna do god's work.

- Hey, good game.

- Oh, thank you.

- Chug, chug, chug!

- Mouth to spout, right boys?

- Mouth to

spout, mouth to spout.

- That's mouth to spout.

- He got it.

- On your knees, pledge.

You ready?

- Go easy on him, okay?

- Yeah.

- We got you, brother.

- Come on, let's go.

- Chug, chug, chug!

- I said easy, bill.

Man, slow down.

- Who cares?

- Come on, he's just a pledge.

Come on fatty, let's go.

- Dude, sorry.

Hey, come on.

I got it.

Go, go.

Come on.

- Jude, Jude, come here.

- Hey, look, I know he

can be a bit of a dick,

but in my mind, you're already

an official OTP, all right?

- Whatever.

- I got you.

- Okay.

- Okay, we'll

we're gonna mingle.

It was really good to see you.

- Okay, have fun.

Hey, great game today, Jude.

- Oh, thank you.

- Do you think next time,

maybe you could just

pretend to be interested?

Those kind of girls

really make or break me

for homecoming queen.

- Okay.

- Thank you.

- Why don't you take a lap,

and I'm gonna go

find the bathroom.

- Okay, well come back quick.

It's a little easier to mingle

when you have the star

quarterback on your arm.

Okay, be quick.

Ugh, you taste like chips.

- Oh, this is great.

You in line?

- Yeah.

I'm the last man.

- That's a long line.

- Yeah.

There's another bathroom on

the other side of the house.

- I don't want to face

the crowd again.

It never ends.

- Jude Klein?

- Mm.

- Can I get a picture?

Can you take our picture?

- Oh, yeah.

- Of course, of course.

- Smile.


- Thanks so much.

- Yeah.

- Call me.

- Oh my god, so embarrassing.

- Hey, you're a popular girl.

- Would've been a different

story if I lost the game.

- Yeah,

but you actually

haven't lost a game

since your freshman

year at victory high,

where you started

all four seasons,

and then you were recruited

by all of the big

conference schools,

and now, here you are,

star quarterback of the

western Indy Timberwolves,

and now you're gonna lead them

to their potentially first

undefeated season ever.

- I'm sorry, who are you?

- I'm Ryan Morris.

Sports journalism.

I'm actually doing a cover

story on you for the observer.

- Oh really, a cover story, huh?

- Mm-hmm.

- Hey, pledge.

You in line?

- Yes.

But you can take

my spot, brother.

- Hey, we're not your

brothers, pledge.

We're your betters.

- Right.

Sorry if I offended you.

- Sorry to interrupt, you guys,

but I've been trying

to get in touch with...

- Ryan.

- Ryan all week

about the story for the

paper that he's doing.

- Oh, sorry, Jude.
