Troy misses final Top 25 Poll. Claims #25 ranking and hangs banners.
Upon hearing the news about not being in the final top 25 AP poll, despite finishing 11-2, Troy University decided to go a different route.

Troy's chancellor, Dr. Jack Hawkins Jr., made his thoughts on the subject known,

"We don't give a $*%^ about ESPN, the NCAA, or that garbage ass AP poll. I've already made the decision to declare Troy #25. We will be hanging banners and putting up billboards."

Troy had a miraculous season with wins over #25 LSU and Akron. Dr. Hawkins says the loss to a 4 win South Alabama team should not be taken into consideration.

"Obviously they cheated. I could spot the needle marks on their asses from my fancy stadium club chair. I wouldn't spit on a damned Jaguar! Or...wait...yeah."

Troy University will be spending $17,323 on two billboards and a few banners to let people know...Troy is number 25 and you better get use to it.

Reporting from the land of batshit stupid people like myself this is PoT signing off.

Can’t be a G5 team and lose to a 4 win team and make it into the Top 25. It’s just the way the system works.

Well played, Troy. Well played. LOL.

But wait, aren't you setting your sights too low....


Ya see, UCF claims a national championship based upon the fact that they beat a team that beat Alabama. So Troy beat a team that beat a team that beat Alabama.

NIU lost to a bad Iowa team in 2012 and got ranked.
