Set in the turbulent 1960s, the script includes some offensive racial slurs, and brief depictions of violence against the black players, including one athlete who is beaten up. On a road trip, the boys find their hotel rooms vandalized and splattered with blood. Following the incident, the boys discuss taking retaliatory actions. Despite the rules, the team members sneak out of their dorm on several occasions and visit the local bar or house parties where they are shown drinking.
