The movie being consistent with Kyle's book and his story does not necessarily ensure accuracy or that the movie deals in any meaningful way with the situation pre-war or during. As I type that, I sense that I am getting a bit too close to what is allowed on this site, so I will stop there. My goal was not to offend, but to express my disappointment with the movie. It could have been so much more. I did not serve. My younger brother did two tours in Iraq and just returned from his third in Afghanistan. The stories he tells are significantly more nuanced than the movie.

Saw the movie and enjoyed it. Great cinematography, good acting, good directing, etc. It was disappointing, however. It is wildly inaccurate and it oversimplifies the people and much of what happened / is happening. I felt that the writer either thought I was a simpleton who could not deal with complexity or that he was trying to misinform me. That said, the University should know better than to pull it.

"Meyer said Virginia Tech’s defensive scheme flustered Ohio State and that it was the first time he’d seen such a look in perhaps his entire coaching career." That's a long and distinguished career. He's pretty much admitting that he was out-coached. Gotta give him credit for that. Let's fix it and not let it happen again.

I hate to agree with this. VT had better coaches tonight.

Scarlet Fever? That's an actual thing. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scarlet_fever). And sounds kind of nasty.
