Sandler plays Bobby Boucher (pronounced "''Boo-SHAY''"), a socially inept (but also intelligent), stuttering waterboy for a college football team. Bobby deals with hidden anger issues due to constant teasing and his [[MyBelovedSmother mother's]] (Creator/KathyBates) excessive sheltering. It is discovered that Bobby's [[DisabilitySuperpower anger issues]] make him an extraordinary football player. This transfers to Coach Klein (Winkler) and the rest of the team.

* ForTheEvulz: It's never really explained why the Cougars mercilessly tease and torment Bobby to begin with. The Mud Dogs' teasing of him is at least a little understandable (they're frustrated for having not won a game in more than four years and need somebody on which to take out their misery). But the Cougars and their coach seemingly abuse and torment Bobby for no real reason other than... because they're jerks[[note]]Nevermind that Bobby is the guy who's not only keeping them hydrated but probably preventing them from dying of heat stroke during Coach Red's obviously grueling football practices[[/note]].

* ApologeticAttacker: When Bobby first displays his ability to tackle, he blasts the SCLSU starting quarterback during a practice play, and later, as an official member of the team, does the same to one of the team's receivers. Both times, he immediately apologizes to the player in question.

Added DiffLines:

* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Bobby's mother tells him absurd lies about the world, such as the fact that she, not Ben Franklin, invented electricity (never mind the fact that electricity wasn't invented, it was discovered), and that "happiness is from magic rays of sunshine that come down when you're feelin' blue."
