In just three weeks, we’veseen enough craziness in collegefootball to bring back memories of the lunacy that ruled 2007.Fortunately, we have some sanity:four of the top seven teams in TheAssociated Press poll are from theSEC, winners of the past three BCSnational championships. Until fur-ther notice, we’ll all follow the big,bad league and hope for the best.
OVERRATED
 
No. 1 Florida.
The Gators needinjured WR Deonte Thompson(hamstring) to get healthy andprovide a deep threat.
 
No. 5 Penn State.
After threeuninspiring tuneups, the Lionsbetter find another gear this week against Iowa.
UNDERRATED
 
No. 14 Cincinnati.
Convincingroad wins over Rutgers and OregonState have the Bearcats primed foranother Big East championship.
 
No. 25 Nebraska.
Lose byone on the road to No. 11 Virginia Tech—and fall six spots.

BY ALBERT BREER
ARLINGTON, TEXAS—
This NFC East show-down might have been held in a brand-spanking-new $1.15 billion palace, butthe end result revealed that little haschanged in the division.The Cowboys remain loaded with tal-ent, flash and tantalizing potential.The Giants, while not always pretty,still grind down opponents and wingames the fourth quarter. And they didit again in front of a record 105,121 fansat Cowboys Stadium, with LawrenceTynes collecting the winning points on a37-yard field goal as time expired topunctuate a 33-31 win.Perhaps the greatest testament wasthe atmosphere in the huddle as theGiants embarked on an 11-play, 66-yarddrive to set up that kick.“Just business,” is how Eli Manningdescribed it. “We don’t say a whole lot.It’s not rah-rah. We call the play, we goand we try to make some plays.”The Cowboys made the wrong kindsof plays. The party hosts rushed for 251yards and held the Giants’ vauntedrunning game in check. But the defensecouldn’t get the big stops, and Romo wasintercepted three times. “I really cost usthis one,” Romo said.More highlights from Week 2:
Rex in effect.
Rex Ryan and the Jets backed up a week of bluster, holding thehigh-flying Patriots to three field goalsand Tom Brady’s completion percentageunder 50 in a 16-9 win. “We’re a goodfootball team,” Ryan said. “That’s thestatement we made last week. That’s thestatement we made this week.”
Falcons flying.
Atlanta goes to NewEngland next week at 2-0, and MattRyan’s continued ascension is the pri-mary reason. He was 21 of 27 for 220yards and three touchdowns in a winover Carolina. Tony Gonzalez was askedif he’d ever had a QB as poised: “Imight’ve seen one on TV, but not any- body I’ve ever been around.”
Kurt response.
The Cardinals bounced back from a loss to the 49ers bywinning at Jacksonville, and Kurt War-ner set a record in completing 92.3 per-cent of his passes.

After all the years of dreaming and schemingto build Cowboys Stadium,
 Jerry Jones
is ready tosee his $1.15 billion masterpiece in all its glory.About 75,000 folks went to their seats andanother 30,000 scrambled for the best spots tostand and watch, either on the humongousvideo boards hanging over the field or directlydown on the turf. By game time, 105,121 were inplace to watch Dalla’; 33-30 loss to the Giants—an NFL regular-season record.The largest crowd for an NFL regular-seasongame was 103,467 for Arizona-San Franciscoin Mexico City in 2005. The record for a gamein the United States is 103,985 for the SuperBowl between Steelers and Rams at the RoseBowl in January 1980. The record for any NFLgame is 112,376 for a preseason game betweenthe Cowboys and Houston Oilers in MexicoCity in 1994; that’ll probably hold until theSuper Bowl comes to this building in February2011.A new piece of artwork in the lobby of theNebraska athletic department office buildingwill commemorate the Cornhuskers’ 300 con-secutive football sellouts and serve as a conver-sation piece for visitors and prospectiverecruits. The mural, to be unveiled Thursday,measures 22-by-28 feet and is made up of 616mosaic tiles depicting a full stadium with play-ers celebrating and red balloons taking flight tosignal the Huskers’ first touchdown of a game.A proposed casino at the Kansas Speed-way received a new brand when the companyoperating the Kansas City-area NASCAR tracktook on a new partner for its project, changingfrom Hard Rock to Hollywood. For the LotteryGaming Facility Review Board, more than aname or theme is at stake. Chairman
Matt All
said the issue is whether one brand name is bet-ter at drawing customers than another—andwhether the state stands to get more revenueseither way—from what already will be a nota- bly different project.
