The Kansas Jayhawks are still not ranked after cruising to a 4-0 start to the season.
In the latest AP Poll, the Jayhawks are the top team in others receiving votes, which is downright insane.
Kansas has wins over Tennessee Tech, West Virginia on the road, Houston on the road and Duke. Not only is the program 4-0, but Lance Leipold’s team is averaging 47 points a game.
How is that not good enough to be ranked? Kansas isn’t just winning games. They’re putting up huge numbers. Hell, they went on the road and Houston and dominated the Cougars to the tune of 48-30. What are we even talking about at this point?
Furthermore, there are nine ranked teams with a loss. It’s not like the entire top 25 is undefeated at the moment. In fact, 36% of the top 25 already has a blemish on its record, and yet, 4-0 Kansas just can’t make the cut.
Kansas fans and people who love college football should be upset.
What this really tells fans is that no matter what you do on the field, if you’re a smaller brand, nobody is going to care.
How else could you explain Kansas being unranked, despite the team having its best season in 13 years? It makes no sense.
Kansas’ next two games are against Iowa State and TCU. Both of those are very winnable, and if the AP voters leave the Jayhawks out with more wins in the coming weeks, the poll should just be dissolved.
