Last week, website is giving details of Tier 1 promotion and relegation for 2014 football season. Is good day for Memphis, UTSA, and Hawaii – but not-so-good day for Louisiana-Monroe, Toledo, and San Jose State.
Same joy/pain is also to feeling on Tier 2, Tier 3, and Tier 4. You are maybe thinking – “Tier 3? Tier 4?! Why is no detail of these Tiers on Commie Football website?” Is good question. Commie Football system is rethinking all of American college football from top to bottom, but Soviet supercomputer is only calculating scores for top two Tiers at present time. Is yet early part of five-year plan. Data for lower Tiers is classified. Men will gladly die to protect. But for purpose of proper calculation, is critical to know every Tier of all college football teams.
You are remembering that promotion/relegation is being decided by combination of Top Power rank and attendance average for home games. After running calculation, it is decided that three teams are to be promoted up to Tier 2 for 2014 season:
- Georgia State Panthers
- Yale Bulldogs
- Charlotte 49ers (is actually moving up from Tier 4!)
And so is sad part – here is three teams who are to be relegated from Tier 2 to Tier 3:
- Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions (2-10, District 6)
- Murray State Racers (3-9, District 4)
- Indiana State Sycamores (3-9, District 5)
Note: Is some teams, like Southern Utah Thunderbirds, who is having very low attendance and is seeming to be destiny for relegation to Tier 3. But, because team is finishing with 6-6 record, this team is not eligible for relegation. Only teams with losing record can be making relegation.
Finally, at lowest levels of American college football – here are teams moving up to Tier 3 from Tier 4:
- Brevard Tornados
- Florida Tech Panthers
- Houston Baptist Huskies
- Lane Dragons
- Mercer Bears
- Minnesota-Moorhead Dragons
- Saint Joseph’s Pumas
- South Dakota Mines Hardrockers
- Stetson Hatters – Note: Is very funny nickname.
- Stillman Tigers
And here are teams now moving down from Tier 3 to Tier 4:
- Bentley Falcons
- Black Hills State Yellow Jackets
- Lake Erie Storm
- Livingstone Blue Bears
- Millersville Marauders
- New Mexico Highlands Cowboys
- Northwood Timberwolves
- Notre Dame (OH) Falcons
- Southwest Baptist Bearcats
- Tiffin Dragons
- Western Oregon Wolves
WHAT IS NEXT? WHAT IS NEXT.
Next during college football off-season is geographic realignment of divisions, based on new teams moving between Tiers in promotion/relegation. Then, is new schedule for 2014 season.
