Joe Montana Debunks 'Rudy': Joe Montana, who played for Notre Dame with Rudy Ruettiger, said the 1993 film named for him takes some liberties with the truth. "Well, the crowd wasn't chanting. No one threw in their jerseys," Montana said on Dan Patrick's radio show. "He did get in the game. ... He did get a sack." Ruettiger corrects some of the film on his own web site, though he does assert, "Rudy's Dream was real, the tackle was real, the carry off was real. The Struggle was real. The Victory was real."
