Kansas Baseball ranked #19 by Rivals, Baseball America is less impressed.

Kendall Rogers at Rivals.com ranked Kansas #19 in his top-25 this week. I was surprised to see the Jayhawks left off the Baseball America list. There are a few other polls for college baseball, but I only pay attention to Rivals and BA. 

KU swept the weekly conference awards. Casey Lytle was named player of the week and Brett Bochy was named pitcher of the week. Check the comments section below for the full press release. Big congratulations go out to Casey and Brett.

While it is ridiculously early to take RPI numbers seriously, I’ll list the Big-12 ranked by RPI below. It will be a couple more weeks before we should start putting much weight into RPI numbers, but it is fun to see how the season is shaping up so far. 

3 – Texas

5 – Texas A&M

23 – Oklahoma

27 – Kansas State

30 – Kansas

54 – Baylor

65 – Texas Tech

101 – Nebraska

126 – Missouri

200 – Oklahoma State

 

There are a few eyebrow raisers in that list. I am surprised to see K-State so high. Nice to see TTU back in the conversation. The Red Raiders’ program has gone through some lean years as of late. Missouri is a bit of a mystery to me still this year, but they can’t be that bad. Regarding OSU, Whow! The Cowboys will not stay ranked that low for long, but what a horrible first month for them.
