6. Others schools will continue to underestimate Kansas football

No matter what, people will always faintly remember Kansas football as the conference’s bottom feeders. However, people are going to need to put respect on the Kansas Jayhawks’ name.

Kansas might enter Austin, Texas, with a 4-0 record in Week 5 if they continue their strong play. That should put them on the national radar like they were last year on College GameDay against TCU. I loved seeing the ‘Blackhawk’ shirts, and all of the fans were so pumped for the game. It made me excited for the future of the program.
