Well, I am quite the fool. I messed up my OOTP save, but not before finishing through the end of the Roosevelt Cup. Detroit, Stockyards, and Louisville ended up in a 3 way tie.

CHALK!

Despite the turbulence of the West, Brooklyn stayed atop the division. Bryan Rosenberg once again lit up the basepaths and finished the season with 73 stolen bases, good for more than double second place (teammate Justin Kovacs with 30), not to mention a professional single-season record over a 96-game stretch. With a slash line of .366/.469/.615 with 21 home runs to go along with 70 RBI, Rosenberg was the Eastern Division triple crown winner. Teammate Noel Kelley also finished the year with 21 home runs, while right fielder Mike Kulp and first baseman Matt Box were second and fourth in batting average. Rosenberg had 10.0 WAR, a historically dominant year, with Kovacs coming in second with 5.5 WAR. This team wasn’t just all offense, however. Although he got hurt near the start of September and is ruled out until next season, Tim Vogt went 15-3 in MABL play with a 2.50 ERA, while the Jays’ second elite pitcher, Gary Hansen, led the MABL in strikeouts with 112 and pitching WAR with 5.7. Sorry to get all numbers-y, but this team went an insane 13-2 to close out the year, not to mention the top spot of the Hirsch Cup with a record of 28-5. Through Player of the Month performances from Mike Kulp and Rosenberg, the Jays look to be a machine going into the inaugural Roosevelt and Hirsch Cups. Media have swarmed this team, however, and manager Joe LaRocque has yet to show his composure during tense moments. At 34, he’d be the youngest manager to win a league title at any professional level, and immortalize himself as an innovator built around speed. If he fails, well, this might be the last chance for team president Adam Hirsch to see the Jays win a national championship, something he fought for for so long.

Everybody remembers the great 1966-67 AltCAA football national title game, where the universe split into more than six separate timelines, and every single school won the national title (except Charlotte, who did not field a top-level team until 1996).

also johns island, who went 1-9 that year, and had to vacate that win because head coach argus mcscoot bought his players ice cream after the game

 
Unfortunately, the game that was vacated due to ice cream misconduct was a 103-1 win against Hershey. The historic “Ice Cream Sunday” game would end up being given back to Hershey as a win for some bizarre reason. This altered result (that was very much deserved after Johns Island’s sickening conduct) restored Hershey’s perfect record that was needed to make the National Championship game.

Vacated wins don't really work like that, but I mean USC won the 1967 Rose Bowl (and the national title) after a loss to (a very good) Oregon State in the second-to-last week of the season. Also, fwiw, the national champion moniker was given out before bowl games back then, meaning polls would just decide whatever and be immediately invalidated. In that year, three of the lower ranked teams won their bowl game but didn't receive anything from it. LSU and Texas A&M both beat top 10 opponents but ended the season without a number next to their name. If you wanna actually get wacky within the bounds of reality, college football is an amazing creative writing prompt.

To be fair, 1966 wasn’t their 5th and last title, it might not even be their title at all. Same for the other four. Claiming titles is definitely stepping on toes. I’m positive the 5 title claim isn’t canon. What if I say Hershey has the 1966 title? Now what?

 
This was when Frank Howard was head coach, guys. You look his Name up.

Thankfully for everyone involved, college football has and always be a convoluted, strange and wacky sport that allows for multiple national title winners in any given year. As for Frank Howard and Clemson, the Tigers only and most recent championship before the Swinney era was in 1981, I assumed that due to the area and history you were going for, a loose Minnesota, Illinois, Iowa, or Michigan State style scenario might make more sense. Iowa might not be bad either, actually, and just because you have one school's history for one part doesn't mean that you can't mix and match for others.

Just because nobody has chosen it yet, Asnerbrook chooses Clemson.

The Black Swans Game
Arguably the most memorable game in the history of Asnerbrook football, involved religion. A year after Sandy Koufax famously refused to play on Yom Kippur in Game 1 of the World Series, a Jewish player on the Asnerbrook Swans, Running back Wrence Arnatoveis, decided to play on Yom Kippur, and it paid off as he Scored 5 touchdowns in a 44-12 Beatdown of GLBSU in September 24, 1966. “Rocket” as Arnatoveis was known, later admitted to taking bribes from his fraternity brothers to play in the game. The Jersey he wore that day now hangs in the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house on campus. One of his Phi Psi fraternity brothers, Antonio Reynos, later investigated if his claims were true, and he was wrong. As for Arnatoveis, his play that day helped him become the first Jewish Heisman Trophy winner that year, and the swans won their fifth and most recent football national Championship.

This feels close to Minnesota! Is Asnerbrook meant to be rivals with Great Lakes Bay, because their historical reference is a MAC school?

can we submit logos without wordmarks? Often times, the wordmarks of baseball teams can be disconnected from the logo set in some manner, and cap logos have historically been far less subject to change than chest logos.
