Struggling Calvert University needs a new income stream fast. So it hires firebrand coach James Gore to build a turnstile-clicking football team. Build it he does by bringing in top players, slipping them stipends, putting them in pea-brained classes, manipulating the media and cutting himself in on cushy side deals. But one of Calverts vaunted Four Aces backfield has more character than that. He quits when he uncovers the disgrace behind the glory, a move that could throw Gores scheme for a loss. Pat OBrien is Gore, a coach far removed from his Knute Rockne, All-American. Dick Powell plays the Ace who puts principle over playing. And ex-USC tackle John Wayne has a bit speaking role about 12 minutes into the film.**Please be aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc.
