Doesn't even take 30 wins... here's the Romero breakdown for those who moved up to DI-AA:

Kyle128084:   28 total wins, 24 D-II wins (and had to have taken a loyalty/rep beating for a lateral DII move in season 3)
kas1007:  42 total wins, 30 D-II wins, 1 NC
ulrich:  39 total wins, 26 D-II wins
mannowar (me):  46 total wins, 32 D-II wins, 1 NC

Maybe it does have something to do with D-II wins and apparently nothing to do with overall wins or loyalty/rep.  No knock on Kyle here, just not sure what qualified him.  Heck, I had 28 wins after season 2 and more than double the playoff wins... and, I didn't have the rep/loyalty loss for a lateral move and didn't qualify.

None of this really matters all that much, but once again, as in prior versions of this game, we find this big grey area that no one really seems to absolutely KNOW what's going on.

40 doesn't seem to be the magic number from what I am seeing in Argento and Bava. 

Here are the teams by world in D1AA along with win totals, D2 wins and NCs.

Argento
HardKnox23 37 wins, 31 D2 wins
KatzPhang88 37 wins, 29 D2 wins
Scoobybud 42 wins, 27 D2 wins
dewagne (me) 52 wins, 34 D2 wins, 2 NCs

Bava
EZ37 39 wins, 29 D2 wins
WVUFan76 32 wins, 25 D2 wins
RunRun 39 wins, 29 D2 wins
AppSt 38 wins, 30 D2 wins, 1 NC
dewagne (me) 52 wins, 36 D2 wins, 1 NC

Looks like D2 wins may be a factor, but not sure but when a 32 win coach gets to move up, it sure looks like it.
I was only qualified for about 2/3 of the jobs at 37 wins.

I was qualified for everything on both worlds. 

I do have a question about everyone being put back to A+/A+.  Is this a pre-cursor to allowing us to move up to D1A next season?  If so, are teams that have moved up to D2 and D1AA going to have their wins count more for getting into D1A or is it just a crap shoot?

Not sure exactly, we'll find out .  Everyone was set to the same settings for now but the upcoming season should cause some variance.  The goal is to allow some coaches to get to the higher schools so we have some testing going on at all levels.

Forgot about the reputation hit for rescinding scholarships.  It's been a while since I've done that.

Well that sucks.  I was hoping to grab an Elite at some point here, but if everyone is set at the same level, it might not matter what I did so far...Oh well.

Well Juryrigged moved up to DIAA with 17 total wins in 3 seasons.  Now coaching Fordam in Carpenter... so this appears to be a major error
