The Kansas Jayhawks continue to roll in the 2022 college football season. The squad is currently 4-0, boasting one of the best resumes in all of the nation.

Through four games, Kansas has taken down West Virginia and No. 25 Houston on the road, while handing Duke its first loss last week. The Jayhawks sit alone atop the Big XII standings and they’re the only conference team without a loss on the year.

Head coach Lance Leipold is turning things around in Lawrence, but his team is still being disrespected in the polls. When the latest AP Poll was revealed over the weekend, the Jayhawks were nowhere to be found.

You’d have to scroll to the ‘receiving votes’ section to spot the program. Adding insult to injury, archrival Kansas State landed at No. 25 despite having lost to Tulane just over a week ago.

Fans have been quick to respond to Kansas’s absence from the polls for yet another week, despite being one of the few programs to have defeated three Power Five opponents to date. Take a look at the immediate reaction online.

Internet blasts AP Poll for leaving Kansas out of the Top 25

After seeing Kansas left out of the Top 25 for another week, many are posting their reactions to social media. Yes, the Jayhawks are not a traditional football power, but it seems their struggles over the last decade are holding the 2022 team back in the eyes of the voters.

Many in the college football media were quick to chime in.

Brandon Walker wrote, “Kansas not being ranked is a joke. Wins at Houston and at West Virginia are more than enough to get ranked. Either get more qualified voters or scrap it. Not saying they gotta be too 10 but they have a top 20 body of work.”

Tom Fornelli posted, “The only reason Kansas isn’t ranked is because it’s Kansas. That’s it. If it were an SEC team with the same resume and performance it’d be in the top 10,” hinting that the Big XII status is hurting the Jayhawks’ chances.

Danny Kanell shared that same sentiment commenting, “I feel awful for Kansas. Not only should they be ranked in the Top 25 but their resume is easily good enough to be in the Top 15!! But unfortunately, if you don’t play in the SEC you have to beat twice as many good teams to get half the credit.”

The Jayhawks host Iowa State this weekend as they look to move to 2-0 in conference play. A win over the Cyclones will certainly get Kansas over the hump for AP Top 25 voters.
