James Caan coaches the big money making football program, and we see its sordid details. Matthew McConaughey leads a program to rise from the ashes of disaster.

(4)The Program vs. (5)We Are Marshall

Descriptions await...

The Program (1993) - Like Any Given Sunday shows us the shady side of professional football, The Program shows us the shady side of the college game. James Caan plays the coach of a program who's integrating a new running back, has a quarterback with a myriad of personal issues, and dabbles in the areas performance enhancing drugs, the perks of being a college player, and some of the things they would never want you to know about.

We Are Marshall (2006) - In 1970, virtually the entire football program at Marshall University died in a plane crash. This film chronicles the attempts to rebuild the Marshall program out of the ashes of tragedy. Matthew McConaughey as Jack Lengyel, who helps petition the NCAA to allow freshmen to play, and leads a band of young men on an emotional journey to acceptance.
