Coach Thomas' Bobcats | A Relegation Dynasty (NCAA 14)



Background and Overview

I've played a couple of relegation dynasties prior to this one. After a save file issue with my previous one (New Mexico Lobos), and being busy with life and school I lost interest in starting up another dynasty. I was bored with the same old, same old, take a one star team build them up into a title contender within 5-8 years. Then one day I had the craziest idea, and decided to combine multiple elements of dynasties I've been seeing over the past couple years. I plan on going a very long time with this one, and hope all of the restrictions I put on myself will help with the dynasty's longevity.

Special thanks to:
Lilshef for original idea of death penalty, Uncle Sam's Reject for reminder of death penalty, jpfine motivating me to start a relegation dynasty again, and BlackjackXXI Sports for his insane Festivus Jokers rebuild

I'm using a more refined system of my New Mexico one, with the same setup but with a different alignment

My system:
Tier 1: Elite One- SEC (14 teams)
Tier 2: Elite Two- Big Ten (14 teams)
Tier 3: High One- ACC (12 teams)
Tier 4: High Two- Big 12 (12 teams)
Tier 5: Medium One- PAC-12 (12 teams)
Tier 6: Medium Two- American (12 teams)
Tier 7: Low One- Mountain West (12 teams)
Tier 8: Low Two- C-USA (12 teams)
Tier 9: Amateur One- MAC (12 teams)
Tier 10: Amateur Two- Sun Belt (12 teams)
Tier 11: Mr. Irrelevants- Independents (2 teams)

Link to teams in conferences: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...it?usp=sharing

Bowl Tie-ins:
(Elite vs. Elite) SEC/Big Ten: Rose Bowl
(High vs. High) ACC/Big 12: Orange Bowl
(Medium vs. Medium) PAC-12/American: Allstate Sugar Bowl
(Low vs. Low) MWC/C-USA: Fiesta Bowl

How the Relegation System works: Teams are grouped based on overall, top conference (SEC/Elite One) has the best teams, and the worst two teams (Independents Mr. Irrelevants). The conference champion each year is promoted to the next conference, and the team with the worst conference record is demoted to the conference below. The only exception is the champion of the SEC (Elite One) because it is the top tier. For example the champion of the Big Ten will be promoted to the SEC and the worst SEC team will be relegated to the Big Ten. There is one exception is the promotion up to the next conference.

If say the Orange Bowl pits the champion of the ACC and the champion of the Big 12, and the Big 12 team wins. The ACC champion and the Big 12 champion move up to the Big Ten (Elite Two). In that case scenario, a team maybe promoted two tiers, this however is highly unlikely in the higher divisions as it must pit both champions of a tier grouping (Elite, High, Medium, or Low).

Since there is no conference schedule for the two Mr. Irrelevants, to get promoted to Amateur Two (Sun Belt), the team must meet at least one of three following requirements: A. Wins 9 games, B. Wins a bowl game, or C. Finishes season in the top 25

I will also be implementing a 4-team playoff, and it will include the champions of Elite One (S.E.C.), and Elite Two (Big Ten) and the two highest ranked teams in the BCS that are not an Elite champion.

In addition to this I have made a point system to keep track of the best teams. This system can be found here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

Backstory:

In 2017 the NCAA announced that FBS football conferences would be drastically changed. This change would create a tiered system to "maximize competition" in conference on a week-to-week basis. FBS would no longer have conferences with teams and conferences, instead each conference would represent a tier. There would be 11 tiers, one for each conference + the Independents. Idaho and New Mexico State dropped out of the FBS and joined the FCS fearing being put in the bottom conference. The NCAA needed two schools to replace them, they allowed Montana and Montana State to move up without a transitional period. Montana and Montana State quickly accepted the offer hoping to booster their national attention and relevance. This allowed them to join the FBS and be bowl eligible their first season. They were both placed in Tier 11, the lowest tier in the system.

In the midst of all of this, Montana State was under investigation by the NCAA for supposedly paying recruits to sway them to commit. I mean how else could you convince someone to play in the middle of nowhere? The NCAA found them guilty, and imposed the death penalty! However, the NCAA allowed them to stay as they believed not many other FCS schools would be willing to take their place. The restrictions imposed on them were: only 10 scholarships for one year, no home games, and a 2-year bowl ban. The whole Montana State coaching staff was fired, and all 2017 wins were vacated. Many starters have transferred and lots of recruits have lost interest.

But who would coach such a team?

A week later:

Coach Joseph Thomas, a former Montana State star CB and two time Big Sky All-Conference player, received a call.

"Hello, Mr. Thomas. This is the Montana State athletic director, Leon Costello, have you seen the news yet?"

"Yeah. What does it have to do with me?"

"I want to propose a deal, you leave your coaching position at Garfield High School and become our new head coach. We have our eyes on two coordinators."

"I don't know if my wife wants to move from Seattle."

"How about, a 5-year deal, and $375,000 per year? We can get into bonuses, extensions, and all that jazz down the road."

"I'm in, when do we start?"

"I'll meet you on the practice field Monday morning, 8 o'clock sharp, Coach."
