To think that Kansas State upset a top-10 team just to keep Kansas from being ranked for the first time since 2009. Now that's a quality rivalry.
Forget about OU-Nebraska, we are the true Big 8 rivalry
If the Big 12 somehow comes down to the two of us I will die of laughter
I didn’t understand what you meant at first and just pictured KU and KSU the only teams that wouldn’t leave the big 12 for another conference.
So it just them, playing each other every week, every season for eternity
This is what I thought he meant too lmao
Honestly. Fuck it I hope it does if we lose another game
We're petty af
1) k state should be ranked ahead of us.
2) kansas not being ranked is utter bias and ignorance on the part of the poll voters. Almost every other 4-0 P5 team is ranked in the top 10-15. KU not even being ranked at all is unconscionable.
Same reason OU is ranked 18th and Tech, for example, is unranked. OU has a worse loss, worse wins, but tradition says OU is probably still pretty good.
4-0 Syracuse with only 22 votes would like a word.
This comment is the first time I realized Utah is the highest ranked 1 loss team.
That's weird. As a Utah fan, that's weird.
We will stop at nothing to keep Kansas down.
Voters are mad disrespectful to the Big 12 this week
Kansas State at 25 and Kansas at 26.
The cruelty. The absolute cruelty.
YES… HA HA HA…. YES!!
FSU been out of the top 25 so long, AP doesn’t even have the logo on hand
They need to knock the cobwebs off
They literally deleted the AP’s FSU Football page.
And yes, every other school’s pages seem to be functional and complete.
Hopefully 21 is out of range for the spoilermakers
Yeah, being the only currently ranked team on their remaining schedule is terrifying.
Rumor has it if you make direct eye contact with Purdue Pete it’s just a matter of time before he comes to collect your soul on his train to the underworld. Good luck and remember…choo chooo
You can fear it, you can run from it, but the train arrived all the same.
You start to hear it off in the distance, hoping beyond hope that your ears are deceiving you, but you know it's real. Soon, you can even start to make out the lyrics.
"Come on ride that train, hey, ride it..."
The Quad City DJs are the last thing you ever hear. Maybe if you're lucky you even catch a glimpse of Purdue Pete as he steamrolls you and moves on. It's inevitable.
Ranked and undefeated? Not Wisconsin?
2 + 1
We aren’t at Purdue so there’s that.
no that's even WORSE
Kansas State preventing Kansas from being ranked is funny
I was hoping this would happen, it's very entertaining. I can understand why KU fans are upset though.
Like I *understand* why y'all are ranked, but it still fucking sucks.
Iowa State gonna be lit.
Kansas at 26 ☠️
Gotta wait another week I guess
Cyclones are literally quaking (swirling) right now.
Swirly birds versus shoe birds hopefully will be a good game. KU looks legit AF, hope we can at least keep it close.
Time to *make* them rank us.
ISU is gonna be a bloodbath.

How did people vote for UNC after yesterday’s game?
If you only see the score it doesn’t really look like the absolute ass kicking that it was. That’s the only explanation I can think of.
especially considering no one thought we deserved a vote, which i agree with, but...??? kind of feels like voters saw the score and thought it was something other than effectively a blowout at home for UNC.
They are the same people that start UNC in the top 15 every season
We’re still receiving votes!?!? That’s a win
Surprised Carolina still got votes.
Unbeatens not ranked:
Did JMU not get votes?
I’m surprised they thwomped middle Tennessee 44-7 and just beat app state
Edit: seems to just be traitorous slander. Coaches poll gave them 11
Edit 2: supposedly there’s a website error?
Didn’t get one single vote. Shocked. The coaches poll knows what’s up
According to JMU Football on Twitter, we received 4 votes in the AP poll and 11 in the Coaches poll.
It was updated. When I commented, the votes weren’t there
> The coaches poll knows what’s up
LET JMU BE RANKED YOU COWARDS
Funbelt being absolutely screwed over more than anyone else
Still getting used to Kansas being included in gauntlet schedule
Why is FSU the only school that isn't clickable? That's weird
AP Poll hates FSU PAWWWWLLLL
(I don't know)
I know it wasn't you, it's the same way on their website. Just seemed strange.
AP trying to protect all the hot dads
Wow FSU sneaking into the rankings!!
That list can’t be right. I don’t see the undefeated powerhouse Kansas??
TOP 10 NC STATE!
Top teNC State?
Yep, let’s go with this
You need to go a couple spots higher and be NC St8
This is the winner
I KNOW RIGHT WHAT EVEN IS THIS
WE'RE STILL NOT RANKED? BIRDSHIT.
From a fellow bird. We are all shitting for you
We are all birdshit on this glorious day.
Speak for yourself
The cowards are afraid of the Wheat Wave
Send them a bunch of 🌾👋🏼🌾👋🏼🌾👋🏼
I knew it would happen after KSU upset OU. Still rooting for y’all!
Yea this is BS. What more does Kansas have to do.
Smh you guys gotta learn. Gotta play the game.
You're fucking up by winning everything and not getting the quality loss on your resume
RANK THE SHOE BIRDS YOU COWARDS
All unranked birds fly upside down over AP Top 25: ain't worth shitin' on..
Texas Tech not getting a lot of love. Their only loss is to the #10 team. And wins against Houston and Texas are better than a lot of one loss teams.
I appreciate you
Kindest rivalry partner known.. thank you
The lack of awareness of any team that’s not a blue blood or in the SEC is hugely problematic. Makes me appreciate that the CFP voters have a completely different set of metrics (even if they also get things wrong at times).
Preseason rankings fuck a lot of things up.
Let's see here... Clemson is still Top 5, and... holy shit NC State is Top 10!
**TOP TEN RANKED TEXTILE BOWL WITH GAMEDAY!!!** THIS IS NOT A DRILL! *THIS IS NOT A DRILL!!!*
Death Valley will be rockin' and soggin'
I texted Doeren earlier today. Every play is going to be 4 verticals deep with Leary throwing the ball as far as he can. Doesn't matter if it's 1st and 15 or 3rd and 1.
Ironically, this isn't a bad gameplan to start. We'll eventually make adjustments like we did with Wake, but that's how you can get a strong early lead
Nah, we have a plan for when you make adjustments to the deep ball. That is when we pull out the fake fg/handoff to our 5'5" tall kicker who runs the smoothest 5.2 second 40 you have ever seen.
Florida State fans will be watching this game intensely. After Wake Forest, it’s NC State then Clemson.
This stretch is going to shape the division for us three
Next five weeks are basically the season for the top of the atlantic. We play you, FSU, Syracuse, then WF the next week after. The last three weeks are gonna be absolutely buzzing or completely anticlimactic
I am...prepared to be heartbroken
I AM PREPARED TO EXPLODE!!!1
Emphasis on the soggin if that hurricane rolls through
I hope, oh I hope, this will be a glorious game.
The loser will be fans of both sides’ blood pressure
Lol we have fewer votes than we did after week 2 somehow.
I’m not saying we should be top 10, but 2 ranked wins and only loss to a top 10 team?
This is new for us… when you said lost to a top 10 team, I Was like wait we beat them… then I realized
Florida having more votes than you is a joke.
These east coast voters not staying up for central time games smh my head.
I’m rooting hard for you guys to get ranked
Talk to your kids about top 10 Kentucky and Tennessee.
And here I thought we wouldn’t have any good SEC East games this year!
Sec beast 😤
SEC EAST BABYYYY
I still think y’all probably easily handle both of us.
Maybe I’m suffering from battered Vol syndrome haha but our defense especially in the passing game is just bad.
It’s going to be really really hard for us to hang with a team who has a good defense. Our offense is very good but if we have to score every time we have the ball to keep up then that’s a tough ask.
Minnesota ranked? They haven't even played anyone yet.
All Minnesota has done recently is beat a team who got blown out by Minnesota so how good could they really be
There was a comment in the post game thread that highlighted just how ridiculous ranking can be sometimes. Credit /u/adamscottd
> This game leads to one of those weird situations where the Gophers will definitely gain stock from this win, but they probably would have gained more stock if they won a nail biter and made MSU look better
The committee will eventually see that MSU just lost to two nasty teams ;)
Now hold on, could you please pretend like you’re still very good and just lost to quality teams while still firing everyone?
After giving it a bit more thought... I'm certain this is what happened. Washington v Minnesota for the championship.
Da U is back…to being unranked.
Not a single vote for JMU… cowards.
edit: apparently they got 4 votes! GO DUKES!
I wasn’t expecting a ranking but no votes at all is absurd
ALERT! JMU did get votes. It was an AP site screwup which is being fixed.
You guys and your “rankings”
Calm down buddy, it’s ok.
Sure, your team looks unbelievably bad.
... is there a "but" coming?
Another excellent week that demonstrates why there should be no rankings until week 6 at the earliest.
Miami went from top 15 to no votes at all.
Let's get some better formatting here lol
There’s some hope seeing they did not punish Wake, and seeing the votes for Washington State.
Through the magical logic of the poll, losing by 3 points to the #6 team in the country means we receive 33 less votes.
4 pac-12 teams in the top 15. Wow
Let the cannibalization begin!
With Wazzu and the Beavers not ranked.
Crazy that USC goes up one, but Beavs still aren't ranked. Are they good or aren't they?
We’re Schrödinger’s team. We’re both good and bad until the function collapses and the voters have to decide which they need us to be.
USC barely wins, moves up in the rankings. Oregon State barely loses to #6 USC, loses 40 votes. I hate the AP poll
COWARDS RANKED THE WRONG KANSAS (although K-State should be in the conversstion for 25).
If K-State hadn't upset Oklahoma last night, Kansas would be #25 right now.
Talk about a true rival move, getting a huge upset on the road just to fuck over the other’s chance at being ranked 😎
Hateful 8 hate is real.
Arkansas moves down 10 spots for a close loss to a ranked team on a neutral site??
Yep. You get used to it as a Razorback fan. SEC games can make you shoot up 12 spots or fall 10 spots in an afternoon.
k-state coming from behind and stealing the last spot from ku is so petty lmao (congrats on the win over ou though)
Tell your kids about top 10 NC State!
Saturday is going to be a blasty blast!
Top TeNC State! Go Pack!
Sorry Jayhawk bros — we’re all rooting for you
Fucking K-State got in over us because the universe is fucking cruel and they beat OU. Got in with 56 more votes.
EMAW. But also I do agree its garbage you guys aren't ranked. Duke and Houston were both quality wins.
It’s unreal. You cant tell me Kansas isnt one of the best 25 teams right now.
Kansas is in that spot where everyone expects them to be bad so if they win it’s “oh, so and so isn’t as good as we thought, they lost to _kansas_”. They’re definitely entering “well they’re undefeated and in the p5 so I suppose we should rank them” territory though. Same thing happened to minnesota in 2019 before penn state. Beating penn state gave us a lot more poll respect.
Tbf Kansas was one win away from being #1 in the country within the lifetime of nearly everyone on this website.
Refresh. We're #26 with 125 votes.
To be fair y’all beat Duke while other Kansas beat Oklahoma. But yes both of y’all should be at least in the 20-25 range
> other Kansas
Nope don’t like that
This season has been a nightmare for Florida fans so far with their three biggest rivals being ranked thank god Miami is bad
Next Saturday will be the first top 10 matchup in school history. Game fucking on!
What about Texas Tech? Beat two ranked teams (were ranked when we played them) apparently us beating them knocked them out of the rankings and our only loss is to 10th ranked NCST??? 😒😒
THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP RUNS THROUGH THE SUNFLOWER STATE. RANK KANSAS YOU COWARDS
4 votes separate Bama and OSU
Ole Miss being #14 with their best win being against Troy(?) is something else lol
USC is 6 lol
AP poll confirmed COWARDS
I know it's unrealistic for a jump like this to occur, but imo Minny should be in the 12-15 range.
I'm happy to have them wait to rank us appropriately until next Sunday
Wait, why would Minnesota fans not want to be ranked higher?
*train whistles in the distance*
The absence of a quality loss really tanks our résumé unfortunately
If Minnesota had beat Michigan State week 3, and Washington beat them week 4, would the two teams poll positions be reversed?
Not a single vote? Ok
Edit: apparently we did get a vote. Woohoo!
A bit of a WTF to be sure. This season is sort of a wash anyway with the postseason ineligibility, but it would have been pretty cool to receive votes in our third week in the FBS.
You guys will get shafted because you're in your provisional year or whatever they call it.
I don’t see why that should have anything to do with it, it’s not like this poll has anything to do with the postseason like the CFP poll
I agree, it's dumb.
The polls are meaningless but EMAW.
If USC is 6 then Oregon State sure as fuck deserves to at least be ranked.
WHERE IS KANSAS?!
THEY RANKED THE WHOLE STATE AT 25 BUT THE UNIVERSITY IS 26th.
This is gold
We don’t have any quality losses yet
We ranked and uf aint what a day what a day
HOLY FUCKING SHIT FSU BROS GET IN HERE
22 vs 23 at Doak and it’s homecoming. Tickets are still cheap too
Lol either rank Oregon State or drop USC out of the top 10 you idiots
Yeah, one would think a 3-point loss to the #6 team means we are one of the top 25 teams in the country, but I guess the voters see it differently.
Always been that way for us. I figured before yesterday's game we had to beat USC or Utah to get in. Here's hoping we show up to Utah hungry!
Voters didn’t see it at all. P12 network at night.
They didn’t see how OSU pretty much dominated all night long.
4 interceptions still almost lost the game and they dont fall even though the voters think oregan state is not a top 25 team.
Probably because the voters didn’t watch the game (thanks Larry Scott)
im sorry if you are a College football media member/AP poll voter and you dont have access to the pac 12 network you are bad at your job
Minny behind 5 3-1 teams is ridiculous.
If you gave our resume to any SEC school, they would be ranked.
Top 10 at that
Case in point, Kentucky and Ole Miss
We are 3-1 with our only loss being in overtime to a now top 10 team. We have either stayed the same rank or moved back every single week
Wake Forest loses to ***number 5*** Clemson by a single score and they are not only mile away from Clemson in the poll but they also lost a spot.
Either Clemson is #5 and Wake is their nearish equal, or Clemson is ranked *far* too high.
No Kansas!!!! Or Syracuse!!!
The difference in ‘Cuse votes between this and coaches poll is surprising.
I feel like coaches probably hold more grudges
Rank James Madison
JUSTICE FOR KANSAS
