ESPN expert football pundit Kirk Herbstreit doesn’t seem to be pleased with the disrespect being shown to the undefeated Wisconsin Badgers.

Wisconsin is currently only ranked eighth in America despite the fact that the Badgers rocked a previously undefeated Michigan State team and opened the season with a win against LSU. (SLIDESHOW: Get College Football Started Right With These Top 25 Ranked Cheerleaders)

Herbstreit was quick to point out on Twitter that they should be ranked in the top five.

Wisconsin also saw a huge jump in The Daily Caller’s college football playoff power rankings and currently sits at number five right behind Alabama. (RELATED: Week Four: College Football Playoff Power Rankings)

The rest of America can sleep on the Badgers for the time being, but if they beat Michigan on the road then the conversation will be if they’re the best team in America.
