Time to wake up, send anyone unfamiliar home, and wash down a handful of Advil with a gallon of coffee. It's 2014!

Career night for Shane. Hope he comes back Saturday. #shifty

It's a quiet day here, and you are relieved of your obligation to continue the streak today because we know you're hung over and can't string words together.

Football:

Crickets. There was not one shred of news out of Vanier yesterday.

Basketball:

Ken Corbitt's game story from yesterday's huge win, where we find that the previously quiet Thomas Gipson is sort of becoming the team leader. Corbin McGuire says that if yesterday's version of Shane Southwell sticks around, the rest of the Big 12's going to have major issues. And Kellis Robinett, in his post-game notebook,suggests Jevon Thomas is a game-changer for the program.

(The rest of) This Week:

Tomorrow at 7pm, the women take on Baylor to open Big 12 play at Bramlage. It will probably be ugly. They follow that with a visit to Austin at 2pm on Sunday. In between, the men host Oklahoma State at Bramlage at 3pm on Saturday.

National:

So was that A&M-Duke game the bomb, or what?

Bill O'Brien is leaving Penn State to coach the Houston Texans, prompting the Penn State fanbase to utterly lose their minds on Twitter, including one stellar example which immediately started a meme:

In other big-time coaching news, Jimbo Fisher has inked a five-year extension with the Seminoles, and Kevin Sumlin will not even talk to any NFL teams ... Texas and Louisville have apparently been leaving each other voice mail, but Texas doesn't have permission to talk to Charlie Strong yet. Which would make Chip Brown's report that Texas has already interviewed him a little awkward ... The Cats will have one less thing to worry about Saturday, as Michael Cobbins is out for the season with a ruptured Achilles ... And finally, a fond and respectful farewell to Johnny Orr, who passed away early this week. Orr was a character and a statesman, guiding Michigan to an NCAA Championship Game appearance and then building the Iowa State program to prominence. Orr was 86.
