Other mistake: When Don and his father are driving home and Don's father throws his ring out the window, Don gets out to search for the ring and you can see wet marks on his shins from kneeling on the wet road. However, he hasn't knelt down yet. It must have been from previous takes. Also, when he gets up after kneeling down, his jeans are dry. (01:01:50)

More quotes from Friday Night Lights

Question: When Boobie hurts his knee after going back in when Comer can't find his helmet, wasn't Comer the third string running back? Why couldn't they have kept Boobie's backup in there? On top of that, there was only a minute and some seconds left in the game and Permian was up 42-7. Couldn't they have just taken a knee instead of trying to run another play? The game was out of reach, and there was no need to run another play.
