    2. Invincible
    3. Youngblood
    4. Friday Night Lights
    5. Coach Carter, Glory Road, Hoosiers, Blue Chips


    25th ranked teams get beat down on the road all the time against top 10 teams. Sucks that it happened but it doesn't change that we are somewhere between the 2nd and 6th best team in the conference. -PCHawk

    4. Rudy

    There are just so many great sports movies, that its hard to narrow it down to 5. I like your list as well. As long as Remember the Titans is up there, the list is valid.
