The fanfare over football may be fizzling, but a 1925 star player named Dodge Connolly (George Clooney) isn't about to let the flame go out. To rekindle interest in the sport he recruits Carter Rutherford (John Krasinski), a WWI hero. But when a curious and beautiful journalist (Renee Zellweger) starts asking searing questions about Rutherford's past, Connolly is forced to run interference -and then the real game begins.

How We Determine Our Grades

The early days of sport are often a far cry from what we see today. As WWI rages in Europe, a small town schoolteacher introduces the newly invented game of basketball as one way to unite his students and bring an end to the recess brawls in The Basket. In the 1960s, collegiate basketball is rattled when a Texas university coach puts an all-Black first-string squad on the hardwood in Glory Road.
