The balance between academics and sports is explored long before what is going on in the current NCAA. In the 1933 film, College Coach, James Gore is hired to bring winning ways to Calvert University and he does so in any way possible, including fielding non-eligible players. Just imagine if he had today’s boosters!
The Bullet Points:

Pat O’ Brien
Calvert College Football Coach
Why You Should Vote For Him:
This is one of the first villainous and unscrupulous Coaches in cinema.
Why You Should Not Vote For Him:
