Hangover Sports Roundup:BCS Standings, Cowboys Struggle

College Football
ESPN's Mock BCS standings had Boise State as the number one team in the nation but now the real rankings are out, giving college football fans a reality check. The Oklahoma Sooners sit atop the rankings but they should be sleeping with one eye opened. With unbeaten power teams such as Auburn, LSU, and Michigan State below them, Oklahoma needs to hope those teams look bad when losing. As for Boise State, TCU, and Utah, also need the power teams to lose multiple games in order to even have a shot at playing for the national title. It's a shame computers and rankings decide the fate of so many talented teams because it robs the fan of seeing a legitimate national champion. Sadly, Boise State and TCU will get continue to be disappointed until either we get a playoff system or they play in a power conference.

NFL
When your 'America's Team' having an 1-4 start is going to have the Cowboy faithful putting pressure on owner Jerry Jones to make major changes. Once again turnovers and penalties turned possible Dallas victory into a road loss disaster against the Minnesota Vikings. The Cowboys will have a chance to erase their 24-21 loss to the Vikings with two home games against New York and Jacksonville. Meanwhile fans are hopping on the Minnesota bandwagon with not only the win but also with the production of Randy Moss. If Brett Farve can handle his text messages controversy, the Vikings can recover and make a run at the playoffs.
