Congrats on the DL PR.
Yesterday:   Squat 205x5x3 (new 5RM - broke the plateau, yay protein)   Bench 140x5x3 (new 5RM)   Chin-ups BW 3 sets to failure - 14, 4, 3
I came to this exact same conclusion.  I find that I don't miss seeing most of those games anyway.  The best college games are on ABC, etc.  Althought the College Football Playoff is on ESPN, clearly their last play to keep cable relevant.  If not for ESPN I imagine most would cut the cord.
Yeah, at 142.5 I was starting very lean.  Good luck. It was tough give up the six pack as I started to gain again (vanity, I know). I feel my best on paleo/IF, but after about 6 weeks I start to drag and have to cycle off for a while.  Moderation is key. I have never attempted a 1RM, might have to give it a try.  The above goals I am shooting for 5RM.  Hoping for mid-January, then cut to look good when I go to Punta Cana with the girlfriend in mid-Feb.

Bumped the bench up to 135 today and felt good, thanks for the recommendation.I bought and read Starting Strength by Mark Rippetoe over the weekend. So much detail on form and mechanics. Fantastic read. As a result I am adjusting my squat form. My knees were tracking way too far inward forcing a forward lean, back soreness, and loss of strength. I dialed back the weight/reps and focused on form. Back felt great.Today:Squat - 185 x 5 x 3Bench - 135 x 5 x 3Pull-ups - BW x...
Yesterday - Squat 205 lbs - 2x5 then I bonked. Not eating enough food is hurting my progress. The holiday should help me get on track with that. OH Press 70lbs - 5x5 Deadlift 255lbs - 1x5
