Pinterest Inhigher education and technology are inextricably linked. Students rely heavily on laptops, mobile phones, and the all-encompassing internet to complete assignments, in many cases preferring the ease and speed of online access and sourcing over traditional forms of library-based research and note-taking. Their research took them halfway around the world literallyas the duo compared the impact of technology on academic performance in both the United States and China.
Despite his relative popularity at school, easy friendships with other players and smart and sassy girlfriend Jules Harbor Amy Smarthe is dissatisfied with his life.
He wants to leave Texas to go to school at Brown University. He is constantly at odds with his football-obsessed father, Sam Thomas F. Duffyand dreads playing it under legendary coach Bud Kilmer Jon Voighta verbally abusive, controlling authoritarian who believes in winning at all costs.
He has a strong track record as coach: He is manipulated by Kilmer into taking anesthetic shots on an injured knee that finally succumbs to failure and results in even greater injury after getting sacked during a game. He is rushed to the hospital, where doctors are appalled at the massive amount of scar tissue found under his knee and determine that the effects of the injury are permanent and will prevent him from being able to play football for a year and a half, costing him his FSU scholarship.
In need of a new quarterback, he reluctantly names Mox to replace Lance as captain and starting quarterback.
When Kilmer becomes aware that Mox has earned a full academic scholarship to Brown, he threatens him that if he continues to disobey and disrespect him, he will alter his transcripts in order to reverse the decision on his scholarship.
Desperate to be recruited by a good college, Wendell agrees. Undaunted, Kilmer reminds him about altering his transcripts and orders Charlie Tweeder Scott Caanstarting wide receiver and friend of Mox, Lance and Wendell, to replace Mox, but he also quits.
Billy Bob also steps in to defend his teammates. Mox tells Kilmer that the only way they will return to the field for the second half is without him.
Realizing that he will be forced to forfeit the game, he loses control and physically assaults Mox. The other players intercede and then refuse to take to the field. He continues down the hall, and upon seeing that no one following him, turns the other direction and into his office.
After an inspiring speech from Mox to rally the team, they take the field under the leadership of Lance, who takes over coaching duties for the second half, and manage to win the game. Mox is an academically successful, yet rebellious backup quarterback with a heart of gold.
Jon Voight as Bud Kilmer, the main antagonist. Paul Walker as Lance Harbor, the original captain and starting quarterback of the Coyotes. Bruce Kidd, Dean of the Faculty of Physical and Health Education, further noted that the movie demonstrated an abusive approach to sports in an educational setting.
An out-of-court settlement was reached between the two parties, which involved Paramount providing the University with a significant but undisclosed sum; as a consequence, funding was made available for eight scholarships, intended for those University athletes in need of financial assistance.
