I was listening to the guys’ show on the Southern Pigskin Radio Network this week and they had a giant debate going about the best sports movie ever so I thought I would turn that into the best college football movie ever.

I probably am forgetting some, but these were the first that popped into my mind.

I voted for Rudy, even though they do beat the Yellow Jackets in the final game.

I heard the Blindside is amazing but have only seen bits and pieces.

Rudy is by far my favorite movie of all-time. My dad and I watched that movie with great regularity when I was young, and it always resulted in us crying at the end. Just a tremendous film.

I loved the Program when I was younger. I think a few movies are missing from the list.

Agreed!  I haven’t seen all of the films on the list but Rudy was great!  (It never went to the box office, right???)

My dad is a Syracuse / Notre Dame fan… I remember watching it with him—and he rarely watches movies… haha

I’ve only seen Waterboy and the Express.  The express was good until I find out later that he didn’t play for the NC his senior year.  It really made it seem like that was his last year there.  Good movie, but I still voted for the Waterboy, funny as hell.  Who doesn’t love Captain Insaneo?

The Waterboy is good, but I am partial to Rudy. The ending always chokes me up.

Id love to see a poll on Best Football Movie Period. But wed probably need to do a playoff system

Best Pop-Warner/Youth/Peewee Movie
Best Highschool Movie
Best College Movie
Best Pro Movie

Then take the runner up up out of each category and have a wildcard category.

Then take all of the above and hold the final poll

My early prediction: remember the titans

I would say Rudy and the Waterboy for completely different reasons, obviously. For overall best football movie, Remember the Titans is tough to beat.

The Program - Filmed in Columbia, SC and Williams Brice Stadium.
Remember the Titans - Portrayed Gamecock QB Ron Bass (Sunshine).
Rudy would have to be at the top though.

I remember when they filmed The Program. I wasn’t there but had friends who were and told me about it.
I remember Ron Bass as a good QB, though I was pretty young when he played. I thought that was interesting when I saw the movie and they called his name.

They also filmed part of The Program on Duke’s campus and in Durham.  A friend of mine who was at Duke at the time is in the background of a restaurant scene.  Said he was there for hours.
