"Hoosiers" available on DVD

But not with Gene Hackman......the real deal.

"1954 Championship, Milan 32, Muncie Central 30

Easily our most-requested film! Bobby Plump and Ray Craft scored 24 of Milan's 32 points and Plump hit the winner with :03 seconds to go for the biggest upset in state tournament history. This game was the inspiration for the movie, "Hoosiers," more than 30 years later."

Minor resurection here:

Has anyone bought or seen this? There was a story posted in Movie Talk a year or two ago from ESPN.com where a guy compared Hoosiers to the real game film. Does anyone have that article?

Well I dont think the real story of Hoosiers would be quite as exciting as the hollywood version. IIRC Bobby Plump literally sat on the court and held the ball for the final three minutes of the game before taking the final shot.

Gotta love the shot clock.

I always wondered how accurate the movie was. Was there actually a star who refused to play for a while and then decided to play?

No, that was made up for the movie. Bobby Plump was the star of the team and played the entire season.

There are lots of other discrepancies from the movie, but that's why there are movies, right?

The real team made the Indiana final four the previous year.

The previous coach didn't die, he was fired for ordering new uniforms without permission.

The coach was married with two children.
