Is it possible? If you are a year in year out playoff contender how long would it take?

You still have to coach in D2 for at least a season, maybe a couple...

I was always in the playoffs in D3 and I had to spend a season in D2 before I could go to D1aa.  I think you will need to make at least a one season stop.  If you had continued success at D3, you could also theoretically make a one-season stop at D1aa too, and go straight to D1a but I'm not certain the kind of teams that would be open to you.

Thats a bummer...I want to eventually move up to William & Mary (since ODU is not an option) but I'm having trouble finding a landing spot in DII and don't want to give up my bridgewater team without being able to go up to W&M. Guess I'll figure something out.

Try a different world?

noah, it happened once...way back at the beginning of GD (right around season 10 in the very first world, Rockne) .  MichaelDartt lost 3 games in about 7 seasons in D3, was able to jump to a top teir 1aa team for a single season and then to Elite Nebraska.  but i think they have since changed the requirements and you have to spend at least some time at each level.

You would need to spend at least a season at DII.  Overall you would need around 40-45 wins or so to get to D1AA so go ahead and stay at Bridgewater and get some wins so you then only need the one season at DII>

currently have 35 wins... my team is better in every area except my running back. Hard to say how I'll do this season.
