Read the book sometime, movie's good, but the book was awesome. Had McCarney even inquired about him to Freeze (Oher's HS coach), Freeze would have told him don't waste your time because you have no chance with him. Freeze flat out told Pinkel the same thing. Not that anybody really had a chance at Oher - he admitted that September of his senior year he knew he was going to Ole Miss and from then on he was just enjoying playing the "recruiting game".

Watched it for the first time the other night with my wife. The one thing I kept thinking was every coach in that movie is no longer with the school they were representing
Lou Holtz- South Carolina
Houston Nut - Arkansas
Nick Saben- LSU
Phil Fulmer- Tennessee
Just thought it was kind of weird. Dan Mac did not recruit him did he?
No, and from what I can remember, neither did Holtz. I think that was added more for face recognition in the movie. IRRC, NC State actually got a visit from him, not the Gamecocks. He was the number 5 OL recuit in the counrty, right between Dace Richardson (4) and Dan Doering (6).
