Rudy - Final Scene
Things About The Real Rudy That The 'Rudy' Movie Purposely Misrepresents
The entire team refuses to play the last game unless Rudy does, so the coach finally agrees to let him play. The game's nearing its end, and Rudy still hasn't gone on the field. The Notre Dame sideline begins chanting "Rudy," and soon, the whole stadium is cheering for him. The coach lets Rudy in on the last play, and Rudy sacks the quaterback to end the game. The entire stadium goes wild and Rudy is carried off the field by the players.
According to some guy named Joe Montana—apparently he played quarterback or something for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish a derogatory term to us Irish Americans, I might add —the ending to the film Rudy was a bit jazzed up by Hollywood. This guy, Joe whatever, says there were no chants of Rudy in that final game against Georgia Tech and that Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger being carried off the field was more a goof than the triumph that the movie played it out be.
