Blue, 32! Blue, 32!
Right! Hut! Hut!
It's a touchdown! TSU wins|its third nationaI championship!
From champs to chumps.
The Texas State|Fighting ArmadiIIos
were the greatest coIIege team|in history; now, they're history.
The commission slapped Texas State|with a list of infractions,
including recruiting violations,|steroid abuse,
illegal payments to players|and, of course, grade tampering.
These guys' yearbook photos|could act as mug shots!
Joining us tonight is the legendary|Ed 'Straight Arrow' Gennero.
The man who sacked five players|for taking money but still won.
Thanks for joining us.|What's the Iatest on the ArmadiIIos?
The penaIties against Texas State|wiII set an exampIe.
And the pIayers?
The pIayers have been expeIIed,|and aII the coaches fired.
- WiII they get new pIayers?|- They must be reaI students.
No more schoIarships,|no more monkey business,
or eIse no more footbaII.
Mr Gennero, Carver Purcell,|President of Texas State.
l know who you are.|What can l do for you?
The commission came down hard|on us, and the heat in the press...
Now wait a minute. lf you want me|to go easy on you...
l'm offering you|head coach at Texas State.
- Nice show, Ed.|- Thank you.
- l'm finished with football.|- Total control. No pressure to win.
- Run a clean programme.|- Last time they fired me!
The boosters fired you.|We don't have them any more.
We need a man who'll bounce|a player if he takes money.
You need an image.
l'm offering you the opportunity|to show the world this can be done.
You know, your way? Think about it.
Get used to it!
This may be the biggest crowd|we draw all year!
The Cotton Bowl to the dust bowl!
l'm outta my mind letting you|talk me into this!
Building a team from an actual|student body? Mass suicide!
Good to see you, Wally.|Come on.
l thought you'd be pleased,|working together again.
Why should l be pleased?|l could coach my own team.
Coaching football|in London doesn't count.
lt was a good deal. With only|one personal hygiene class.
By the way, l understand|you're off the sauce.
Don't change the subject.|l shouldn't be second banana.
l'll give you free hand.|Stick to defence, offence is mine.
You're the big 'O',|l'm the little 'd'.
Don't start with me.
Your trouble is you bottle|things up, it's not healthy.
Something on my mind, l say it.
Sometimes it's best|to keep your mouth shut.
l suppose l should learn|to dress nice and kiss ass.
At least l'm not taking nitro pills.
- You tell Purcell about that?|- He didn't ask.
Good to be back, huh?
So what do you say?|Equal partners?
This is Chuck Neiderman, the voice|of the Fighting ArmadiIIos!
This season, we need more|than your support.
If any of you can pass,|bIock or kick,
report to the gym at three o'cIock|for open footbaII try-outs!
Way to go! Come on!
- l like the cowboy.|- Have him!
You call yourselves Armadillos?|Sorry-assed civilian slime!
Sir. They didn't have this many|deserters in the Republican Guard!
- Are you all that you can be?|- Sir, yes, sir!
- lt's a little too much.|- Sir, yes, sir.
- Move it!|- Sir, yes, sir!
- Go!|- All right, all right!
Look at that kid.|Got the heart of a lion.
- And the legs of a chicken!|- lt's Charlie Banks.
The only player from last year|that survived the purge.
He was a walk-on.|Not a minute of playing time.
- Just one thing l like about him.|- What's that?
- He wouldn't quit.|- Just what we need.
AII right, Popke,|show me the arm, son!Rate this script:0.0 / 0 votes
