Publicizing your ex's douchebaggery - calling off an engagement by text , seriously? - is definitely one way to get back in the game. Flash forward 35 years, and a jilted Texas woman put out a strong message of her own, using "Monday Night Football" as her platform.
Poor Mack Brown got dissed the moment he sat down, but he played it off well. As for that unlucky Uber driver, let's say he didn't get the best recommendation from that ride.

There also will be a $3 million buyout for both the coach and the school, which decreases annually by $1 million over the first three years of the deal.

CT fired Bob Diaco Monday after three seasons, in which he compiled a 11-26 record and went to just one bowl.
