We just had our top recruiting class in school history being in the top 10 G5. Those are facts. Not shots. So make of it what you want.

You're the reason people are trashing Troy and the Sunbelt. No one on the AAC board has ever started a thread saying the Sunbelt sucks. When the Sunbelt is mentioned here, it is generally agreed they've passed CUSA and are on par or better than the MAC. But you have to talk smack that AAC is not on par with P5 and its a fact. But if you want to talk facts.

Sunbelt is way below the AAC.
Troy is not a top 25 program.
Troy is not a top G5 program.
Troy is not on par academically with most if not all of the AAC (i still can't believe you tried to compare to SMU)

Be proud of your school, your football, and your conference. There are good things to be proud of. Just don't be an a** tearing down others to try to make yourself look better. It only makes others hate you and you look stupid when you come up short by comparison

Dude you clearly don’t read your own board if you think ppl on your board don’t trash the sunbelt and other G5 conferences. It’s the reason I posted in the first place, aside from the illusional talk that your conference is P5 caliber and the bull**** G4 talk. Believe me, I’m not the only one that shares the same feeling. You want to talk facts: the AAC is G5.

Your going to talk me down about Troy, and yet you know nothing of my alma mater academically and athletically. Do you know what that’s called - ignorance. I’ve never once compared SMU and Troy academically because I’m not on here talking academics. I’m talking football. However I would consider yourself on the low man totum poll when you start trashing an institutions academic ability. AND yes Troy has many top academic programs in the US Amongst other universities according to many sources and outlets. We have one of the top 5 accredited sports and management programs. That’s besides the point. I don’t need to prove any of the to you bc you”re an ignorant douche bag. You don’t see me making comments about Houston and their academics, besides y’all hired WV’s coach and y’all performed under par.

Let’s talk more FOOTBALL facts:

- Troy was considered top 25 for one week - I made that correction
- When it comes to football and competition level the SunBelt is NOT and I repeat NOT way below the AAC. Yes we are below, but not by a huge margin. I would put the Sunbelts top programs against any team in the AAC. TROY (aside from this season. We made a horrible hire) App state, Louisiana, Ark state, Georgia Southern...
- yes Troy has been named as a top G5 program IN and OUT by sources over the past 3 yrs. We were within the top 15 in final rankings I believe in 2018 for G5, actually two spots behind Houston.
- I already talked about the academic thing. All i can do is shake my head to that.

Lastly I am proud of my school and the conference my school is in. I played football at my school. I am a donor to my school. Troy is apart of me. So when I see ppl belittle our conference, let alone Troy it fuels me because ppl speak out of ignorance knowing nothing of my school and the hard work all these student-athletes put in to make their dreams come true. I was once there. Did you play in college? Probably not. So you don’t know what it’s like.

Let me ask you something - Would you tell a current Troy student-athlete to their face, “Oh your school is nowhere academically close to Houston or SMU, and your athletic programs are far behind the AAC’s.” ??? Short answer is no you wouldn’t - so why do you have to say stupid **** like that when you know it’s wrong and not right.

Look, I have nothing against the AAC or the teams because they are all student-athletes trying to make something of themselves. Not everyone gets to play college ball at the level these kids play. When you look at the big picture it’s all D-1A football -it’s the level kids dream of playing after high school. We should all recognize that. I came on here bc I saw comments I didn’t like. We are all under one umbrella as hard as it is for some of you to accept. And your right we do need to support each otber, and yes I would love for the AAC, Sunbelt and all the other conferences to rise above G5 status, however right now...that’s not the case we are all G5 in it together. Let the student-athletes showcase their ability and prove that on the field. Like Troy knocked off LSU in 2017 on their homecoming. Beat Nebraska last yr, etc. I understand y’all s marketing efforts and the point of doing it. But bottom line is we are where we are. Maybe it will al change in the future. When it does great. That’s all I’m going to say here. I leave in peace. I wish y’all nothing but the best!

I find you so entertaining. In 1 post
"Your going to talk down..."
"totum pole"
"your right"

You didn't say anything about SMU academics? When an SMU fan says to you "I like you, you have spunk for a community college school," they are talking about your academics. If you don't realize that, you're not so bright. So when you respond "However, you being an SMU fan calling Troy a Community College? I’d rethink that. Troy has earned its respect and reputation among one of the top g5 schools in recent past. Don’t believe me do your research." I assumed you were talking academics too. Sorry you didn't realize you got academically smacked down.

But if you're only talking SMU football, they were ranked 8 weeks this year (vs 1 in your history) and ranked as high as #15 (vs #25). And that's ignoring SMU's history which includes multiple top 5 finishes and 3 national championships from NCAA designated major selectors. (Ugh... I'm defending SMU)

Football facts that Sunbelt is not way below the AAC? RPI and CBS Spirts both have the AAC as the 5th best conference this year. That's right, above the ACC. Sunbelt was 8th.

"yes Troy has been named as a top G5 program IN and OUT by sources over the past 3 yrs. We were within the top 15 in final rankings I believe in 2018 for G5, actually two spots behind Houston. " So you were behind a team that fired its coach. UH definitely didnt consider itself a top G5 team last year. Thats why we fired our coach. So if you consider that successful, it shows me a low bar. Your point shows a huge difference between AAC teams and the G4. Being a top G5 team is not a goal for AAC teams. Being a top team is our goal. Being the bottom of top 15 G5 is considered a failure.

You put those top Sunbelt teams against the AAC? No one else does. 2018 the AAC had 2 teams finished ranked. Sunbelt 0. 2017 AAC had 3 finished ranked including #6. Sunbelt 0. 2016 AAC had 1 finished ranked. Sunbelt 0. 2025 AAC 2 finished ranked including my Coogs #8. Sunbelt 0. Looks like this is the 1st year the Sunbelt has a ranked team. Congrats App State! Well deserved.

Would I tell a Troy student athlete that the academics and athletics are inferior? I wouldn't volunteer it because I'm polite. But if pushed, I wouldn't lie. Does Troy have some superior academic programs? I'm sure they do. That's what makes each college great. I can be honest though, even about my own school. Does UH have some superior programs to SMU or Tulane? No doubt. Overall academic comparison? Yes, they are superior. Can you admit the same?

It's good that you're proud of your school and conference. You should be. So are we. But you feel insulted when we show pride in ours and try to tear it down.

You say it's all D1 football. So why denigrate the AAC when we claim to be towards the top instead of the bottom? P6 doesn't say that G4 isn't D1.

Reading some of the post on here it’s clear to point out that some of you folks are absolutely pathetic in your views and comments. Yes, I’m a Troy fan, and yes my team is in the SunBelt, so what say you? SunBelt has the most bowl wins the past 5 years out of any conference by a long shot. Bottom line is you may have few teams that stand out year to year, just as any other conference, but it doesn’t change the fact that your still in the G5 with the Sunbelt, MAC, CUSA, MWC. I guess the SEC should have a conference of their own, right? Do y’all know how stupid that sounds. Get over it...we’re all in the same category. Stop being so delusional.

Troy went 5-7 and 3-5 in conference. Yet you are here to talk smack?

Merry Christmas

Oh lord, one bad season - Every team has one. Get a grip dude. We’ve had 3 - 10 + win seasons aside from this past one. A Top 25 team with wins over LSU, Nebraska, and almost handed Clemson a pillow on their own turf. Not to mention 3 straight bowl wins. We’ve earned our respect as one of the top G5 programs.

And for the dumb*** that said we’re the 4th or 5th best team in Alabama...UAB and South Alabama have been our ***** since they started a football program. Go look at the history.

I don’t care what the meaning of P6 or G4 is.....bottom line is it doesn’t exist. Your G5...deal with it. Get the tampon out of your vaginas and grow a pair just because your not part of the P5. Are you top G5 yes....but still G5. That’s my argument and I’m sticking to it. Y’all can keep living in your effin fantasy land.

I don’t care enough to. That’s the point. No one cares about your uninformed divorced from reality drivel just like no one cares enough about Troy to bother checking. No one cares.

I could take on a bunch of 3rd grade girls and kick their ass too, but who gives a ****. Your record doesnt mean anything when you are literally playing against some of the worst teams in college football. The Sunbelt does absolutely nothing and beats nobody of any real stature.

Theres a reason we have bowl games against other P6 teams and the sunbelt doesnt.... and its also why yall get $350K a year and we get $7 million. THe market has spoken... and nobody gives a pint of piss about the sunbelt.

RE: For all of you AAC P-6 Wannabes.
Let's be gentle with our SunBelt guests...
I just saw the ratings for Appalachian State's bowl game...The champs' ESPN prime time (9 eastern) game on a Saturday night, vs another conference runner up brought in 963k viewers. At least that was an uptick from the leadin SunBelt CUSA Camellia Bowl at 692k.

Ouch.

They're probably over here cuz they need hugs...
