My Saturday routine was completely disrupted thanks to the good folks over at AT&T. Typically, I roll out of bed, throw on College Gameday, fire up the stove to make some eggs, and put together Saturday’s Instagram Babe of the Day. So when I saw the above message on my TV screen, it was a bit of an inconvenience but I thought the storm from the night before might have knocked out the power. I flipped open my laptop and realized there’s no internet connection as well. I reset both the cable box and the wireless portal. No dice. After a nice forty-five minute conversation with those previously mentioned good folks at AT&T, they finally realized that our service was “accidentally” shut off. Again, somewhat of an annoyance but we figured out the problem well before the games started. That’s when they told me it would take up to twenty-four hours to start service again.
How? How does flipping one fucking switch take twenty-four hours? Oh, and woke up this morning and guess who had to drive to the office because he still doesn’t have cable or internet at the TFM writer house. No, it’s perfectly cool, AT&T. I only use our cable two days a week and pay for the sports package just so you can “accidentally” cut off our service. Then, I ended up having to stream the UCF game on my phone, and use precious data that the same company is going to bend me over and have their way with for using. Well played, you sneaky bastards.
Yes, I know. Using an ungodly amount of data to watch the abortion that is UCF play football right now is like me just wiping my ass with money, lighting the poop covered bills on fire, and flushing them down the toilet. But hey, I’m riding this nuclear jet all the way to the crash site of 0-12.
tl;dr: Fuck AT&T, UCF still sucks.

Florida holds Vandy to 30 yards passing, still need late field goal from previously benched kicker to clinch the SEC East.

Bret Bielema is on his way to another impressively mediocre 6-6 season.

Big 12 might cannibalize itself out of the playoff for a second straight year. Meanwhile…

Enjoy it while you still can, Iowa.

But keep doing your thing, Iowa. No one will ever believe in you, but there’s only one thing left for you to do.

Much to the chagrin of others, Bama isn’t going anywhere.
