RCT Top 25 - Week 13 - 3/10/15

The final poll of the year gives us the most uncertainty at the bottom.

Regardless of the fact that the poll itself was taken prior to conference championship games, it seems appropriate to release the results of the 13th week of the poll (including the skipped weeks) on Friday the 13th, so you can see them all here.

Please note that this is the final poll of the season, so if you want to ridicule the pollsters, now is your last chance to do so.

This is likely the strangest poll yet, as we have a literal logjam of teams at the bottom.  Other than the bottom 5 spots or so, the poll has been pretty much the same from week to week.   So here are the results:
