Dynasty Update: Sweet, Sweet Finish

Following the lackluster performances in Jacksonville and Boca Raton, Ace Journeyman tried to refocus everything about his football program. He changed the practice schedule, ordered extra hitting drills, and shook up the players' workout routines. It all seemed for naught, though, as the Auburn Tigers came into Athens and went up 14-3 in the first quarter. But, as the game wore on, the Dawgs found there resolve, going on to win 34-21. Facing a ranked, 2-loss Kentucky the next week, Journeyman stayed on his players and it paid off. The Dawgs not only handled the 'Cats 35-7, but the win locked-up an SEC Title game appearance and Georgia used the momentum to crush in-state rival Tech on the road the next week, 38-7. Top-ranked Alabama was arguably the best team Ace Journeyman ever coached against, but once again, a strong defense and running game combined with smart QB play carried the day, as the tenth-ranked Dawgs upset the Tide to earn a Sugar Bowl bid. The New Orleans classic was a re-match almost 50 years in the making, and the Dawgs dominated from the first whistle, riding smart, physical play all the way to 24-3 bruising of the Irish. The strong finish saw the Dawgs break into the top-5 of the polls and snag a couple key 5-star recruits. It's the biggest in-season turnaround Journeyman's ever led and if there was a playoff, there's no doubt in his mind his team could win.
