I miss the days when most solid players/athletes strived too play up.
As a first year B team, that was bumped; do you really plan on having a fully successful season? It's your first year in B; give it time and learn the game.
For me, I always looked forward in playing thew highest level/division.
When I started in C, I look forward to playing B and getting noticed by the big sponsors.
Sad thing, you have B guys dropping facing D guys that got bumped? Or C guys playing D against E players that got bumped.
