Colonels, there IS consistency. In both previous times where you moved up to DI, your 2 previous seasons at D2 were first round trips to the NT. Your current run at Hawaii has nothing like that. Like some said above, go get the players to reach the D2 NT, once or maybe twice, and you should be eligible for low DI. The fact that you've been in DI twice before simply has nothing to do with it (and never did). The promotion logic cares about what you've done lately at the schools you're coaching. You could've won NT championships at UCLA 15 years ago, and the logic would only care about what you've done recently, certainly no more than 10 seasons, per the latest promotion changes.
