"It's the most wonderful time of the year. We count down the 12 D A's of Christmas. Here's a moment that got stuck in the chimney. What did she eat? I ended up falling off a diet yesterday and I got a big chipotle a bowl. I buried a whole bag of chips. I then proceeded to get a big ice cream sundae and then for dinner right As the game tipped off, I had two hamburgers with bacon. And then I had a hot dog. Coleslaw and I had two pieces of corn on the cob. And then I had three corona lights. So yes, I would say that when I watched Die on at 6 30 was at the peak of my I feel terrible about myself. I feel terrible about the way I look, I feel terrible about the way I feel. And now I'm watching this fat slob dunk all over the place. You're right. I came out to hot I I just laid in design. If you had a wonderful take, and really, honestly, the show didn't deserve it while I was watching the pelicans game. Completely overdid myself, and I sank two weeks of hard work on losing weight. That was one of the stuck in the chimney entrance this year for the 12 days of Christmas, And I remember that morning. Well, Uh, middle of the summer. We're just happy to have sports back after 3.5 months without him while we get to see Zion Williams didn't play basketball again. This is good. This is really good inside the bubble. Hey, the basketball the NBA is back. When we come out of the top of the show, it's 6 A.m.. And I gently tossed him or as for what I think is going to be a pretty down the middle take about Zion Williamson and maybe some optimism about the basketball being back, and he just absolutely Slices it dices Zion for being a fat slob. He'll never amount to anything. The pelicans have a bust in their head of like, Whoa, Where did this come from? Here I am thinking he's gonna be excited to have basketball back and yet 6 a.m. just trashes Ion. So during commercial break, I'm picking myself. Why exactly was that we delve into that. It's 6 20 Eastern time. And there it it comes out that emotionally more as was in the bag watching Zion because he had just eaten everything in the house that day. And was very obviously projecting. You mean when you listed what you ate that day, whereas I couldn't believe the list kept going and going and going Yeah. And this is what I'm talking about that quarantine 15. I had my good weeks during this pandemic and my really bad days during this fed them again. That was a bad day. And I distinctly remember that day for whatever reason, like I just I got in the hole and I couldn't take myself out. I basically that day I was the Titans versus the Browns in the first half. You know what I mean where you have a nice cream at noon. What do you think is gonna happen? By the time the NBA games get played, and I'd be lying if I told you that night. I probably had a couple dollars on the pelicans and remember, Zion comes out of the bubble, and he's basically played 14 minutes. They Don't want a minutes restriction, so we were just over four months. Can you let the fact I run? I was ticked off that day. I didn't feel good about myself. I had that overeating, anxiety and it really it projected on the show. It wasn't fair to anybody. You took it out on Zion while watching him one of the greatest athletes of his generation. And then you took it out on the show the next morning, and it seems so out of left field And I like how you said you were like the titans yet, except for closing the gap to within one score. You didn't really try to dig yourself out of that too hard. Well, I wasn't playing the Browns defense. What's the plan? It was 28 23 at the half and that it ended up 55 to 10..

This is a nineteen year old kid who's going to spin this year learning how to play winning NBA basketball, let Zion, be that kid don't write this. Like he's here to save. This franchise, he's not he's here to join this family, and we're here to raise each other so buyers David Griffin is right. The Zayn isn't being brought in to be the savior. Sill. No. Now, David has to say that. Yes, I'm okay Griff has. That's what you had to say. And I know savers a strong word. He's the number one overall pick in the draft. And he is the reason they were able to move off Davis. If Zion Williams, it doesn't work out, either, we'll David Griffin tenure there. But you gotta take the pressure off. So I respect what griffis saying even though he knows. And I know and, you know Zion probably knows it's a little more complicated. So skip over the Celtics as many have been schedule on what's next to the team with Irving out and out warford both likely playing elsewhere the start of next season.

What North Carolina's sweep of Duke really means
"Bid the ACC game yesterday the Duke North Carolina game. There was an interesting stat. Interesting to me, at least that I gave on Friday with Chris black, and it was that North Carolina had played Duke eight times under ROY Williams in the final game of the regular season with first place in the ACC at stake for North Carolina. Either outright first place or a share now Virginia one yesterday over Louisville. So North Carolina needed a win to get a share a first place in the ACC now in those eight.

John Williamson is a prodigy is transformative. He doesn't even look like other college basketball players the appetizer portion of this meal is over let's move to the entree the NBA. Tiger Woods had an agent by twelve. It wasn't published. But I lived in Oregon, I knew the Nike people. It was true. He had an agent by twelve you don't waste Tiger Woods time. When the Democrats found Barack Obama and thought of him as a political prodigy, you don't go door to door. You groove the system to get him all the donors of the party aligned notice.

It's the beginning of American commerce. I cross my fingers they say now the injuries not too serious got. I hope they're right. And I think they probably are. But everybody last night was freaking out. Ironically, that shoe exploding the greatest gifts I endeavor had beyond what the man upstairs gave him Nike has to keep him. Now. Are you kidding me? Nike has to keep him. Can you imagine Zion? Williamson saying I I can't wear Nikes Nike will spend whatever it takes to get him. Last night was not a sad night. Last night was not the end of anything. It was the beginning of the machine he's going to get rich his family's gotta get rich executives are gonna get rich. It's the fans are going to win. A team is going to win. The league is going to win. He is bigger than college basketball.

Over in a positive way in Sean one second we have all morning long to do this markets could be with us all morning. Jalen all morning. I got Sean foreign him just for a minute. So let me get Sean in here from Bristol this morning show. And you're hearing the conversation, and you're obviously aware this is what everyone in America is talking about this morning. What do you think of the notion that Zayn Williamson should just shut it down? I'm on the side of Jalen rose. And look I mean, it's important does not say, hey, these guys should get to be able to go right out of high school. The reason why they're not being able to go to high school is because the collective bargaining agreement from the NBA it has nothing to do with the NCWA. The league was built on the Brown, James and all this and we talked so much about in swag. I love you. I love you. But where's this discussion point with Trevor Lawrence right now if he came out of Clemson he would be the number one quarterback on the draft board. He should be allowed to come out to. But we don't talk about it. We talked about basketball in a different way than we talk about football. And that's a problem that I have. Because you're talking about a player Zion. Williamson again, he was injured. I grew Jalen a non contact fashion. This is not necessarily a season ending injury. But we're not doing this discussion with Trevor Lawrence if we're so afraid of guys getting hurt. Then why do we continue to let college football standby? Why the college basketball world gets bashed and college football just sits on the peripheral because Trevor Lawrence doesn't have just one more year. He's got two more years that he could get hurt and he should be. Well, I can answer this question for you simply because in basketball, we've already seen it before. And in football. It's a tougher game. And men are much more Groner when you get to the lean as a seventeen year old and opposed to in the NBA. We saw Kobe go to the NBA as hostile player have some success. We saw Keiji Goto the NBA a half success. We've had our stories in the NBA where guys have failed at trying to go out of high school. I'm down the street from a place called Dr nation where Jemaine O'neil win out of high school. My cousin. Stephen Jackson went out of high school with overseas. The play there is a absolute difference in going to the NFL and plan against those Roman Tessa, let's go into human rights. You're saying Trevor couldn't do it. It's a little difference because of the rules in the NFL for that particular position. But what are you going to tell a defensive lamb and our offense of lamb that feels like they can go to the NFL at seventeen years. And then when they land up and office attack at seventeen years old JJ watt is standing across the line of scrimmage form. Who is a Groner man, then will be for the next five years. The NBA is just come on guys, y'all know the NBA is totally different. When we talk about from a scale says level and also physicality level as it is as opposed to go in the NFL. I are not talking about the skill set of the players. We're not talking about the physicality of the players. I understand that collegiate football players should go to college for a couple of years in order to get physically ready for the NBA..

"He's making no secret of the way, he views all of this. Let us bring in our NFL insider, Jeff Darlington who has much more on this, Jeff. Here we go. We've been waiting for this awhile. Which teams do you think we'll be at the top of the line in this market for levian bell? Well, green you what? Kevin Cobra did here is signal the start of what will certainly be courtship of levian bell. So. While it ends sort of the drama that the Steelers have been dealing with when it pertains the bell. It also should now shift that drama to the rest of the thirty one other teams. Now, there's two teams that I will specifically be watching very closely. And that's the jets in the colts. We'll start with the jets who have the second most salary cap space. We're talking about a player who could come into this Adam gay system and be the type of weapon both out of the backfield as a receiver and a running back that this team needs. He would offer some breathing room for a guy like Sam darnold in his development. I believe the front office is willing to spend money this off season. They've made very clear that they're going to be very aggressive out. Engage. Ultimately have to kind of decide is this the kind of weapon that I need certainly seems to fit that mold in terms of what I see there. Now, the colts have the most salary cap space have Frank Reich who loves the passing game, and it certainly bell who thrives in the passing game as a running back. Also, we should point. They were twentieth. In rushing last year. They too could probably use a guy like bell to put them potentially over the hump and. Make them quite the competitor in the AFC. So those the two teams that I'm watching us free agency approaches. Excellent. But to be clear there, you would imagine they will be a lot of suitors. Yes. Top of us. But he'll have a lot of phone calls. Sure. Absolutely. Yeah. We're talking about by the way. I obviously a huge investment bell not only wants to get paid like running back, but as a number two receiver and either believe he's going to try to make amends for the money that he lost the Steelers. So some GM is going to have to shell out a focus on those teams with the most salary cap space. But I see potentially a lot of seniors here. Yeah. He loves something like fourteen million dollars on the table last year. Chaff the bidding begin we'll see where it winds up Laura. We'll greenie for all the drama off the field. Bell has been great on it. He's averaged one hundred and twenty nine scrimmage yards per game in his career. That's the best in NFL history among players with at least fifty games, of course, we've had a lot of opportunities despite not playing a single down in eighteen bell still ranks third in the NFL in touches since he entered the league in twenty thirteen. Those numbers would be had he flees last season. And anyway but Steelers replacement for bell James Connor average four point five yards per rush and added twelve rushing touchdowns last season. Both of those are better than what bell put up in his last season. So let's welcome in Marcus spears. The big swaggie joining us in spears when you think about this. What's the best landing spot for Levy on Bill? We just heard Jeff Darlington talking about the teams that could maybe have the most money. But where do you think would he fit best thought? It was interesting just in with the Jetson coach, obviously both of them in play for running back. But I truly believe the Texans should be a team to watch out for when you think about the young nucleus that they have there with the show Watson and Hopkins out there on wide and lady on Bill comes from three headed monster system in Pittsburgh when you talk about him being Rosberg, how Antonio Brown was performing at that elite level. I think this is a very interesting team for. Vian bill..

"He would score twenty six Carolina running away and hiding the lead with twenty two points there later, it's fourteen may yes, he would score. Thirty Carolina wins easily eighty eight seventy two the feelings of the arena. Crazy Carolina's celebrates let's hear some more. We're not going to draw any conclusions from this game. Accept the fact that we have a loss that is a definite conclusion that the fact of how we can play who were going to play how you know what we're gonna do. You have to you. We have to come up with a game plan based on on sign not plan, and hopefully he'll be back playing it sometime in the in the near future. But you lose the national player of the year candidate you're going to have they're going to be. Gaps. Be honest. Everybody be honest when the big fella goes out of the game changes a lot of stuff for them Zion. Williamson I've never seen anything like him. And that was a huge bow for them in having that happened during the course of the game. You don't have time to prepare for it. So I hated that part of it because I think he's such a wonderful kid. But that was a huge blow for them at that time. There's no question. All right. So for ROY Williams, his eighth career win against the number one team in the AP poll that breaks tie with Gary Williams for the most all time. It's also the only coach to beat number one Duke on the road more than once. But all those certainly don't feel like the story this morning. So now that we sort of set the table for you. Let's bring it to the table. That's bring Jay Bilas into the conversation from Durham did the game last night. And let's talk about everything we saw Jay I'll give you the floor. I give us your perspective. And what happened there with Zion? And what it all means in the big picture for Duke. Well, it was one of the more bizarre things I've seen on a basketball floor in any big game. And you know, one thing off the top North Carolina would have been difficult for Duke to beat dine Williamson had been in the game for forty minutes. That's the kind of rivalry this isn't that's the kind of team North Carolina has but once he left the game all the air came out of the building. And I think a lot of the air came out a Duke. But what was interesting to me as we got towards the end of the first half got an opportunity to make it a one possession game to get down to three which would have given them a pretty darn good feeling going into halftime and Carolina handled the end of half. Really, well, Duke did not and Carolina stretched out to ten. I think it was forty two thirty two and Duke was on the ropes and in the in the start of the second half Carolina knocked him out. And they were just terrific, and they didn't shoot the ball. Well, Carolina's a really good shooting team. I think they went to of twenty from three if they'd shot the ball well would have been a wider margin because do could not stay in front of. Airline. They could not get out and passing lanes. Stop them from for moving the ball and moving themselves, and they did a really good job of spreading the floor and putting it on the deck and putting Duke into rotation. It was really really good basketball by North Carolina. But I didn't think that emotionally do CAD had recovered from losing Williamson thirty six seconds into the game. Whatever it was. Oceano blow for do when you think about Zion. He's already locked up the number one spot in the NBA draft. There's tons of conversation around him shutting it down. What do you think? He should do if he is able to return either way. Well, I it's a it's a fair question. And I think a fair discussion to have. But I think if he can come back and play without concern for further injury plays. I don't see how this is different than twisting an ankle or jamming of finger or anything like that. You look, I know there's a big pot of gold at the end of this. I in Williamson, but I don't think it's that big of a deal..

"They just really endangered a potential shoe contract is knee. I don't blame the the biggest prospect since LeBron James the shoe. Did nothing is how poorly the team played once. I on left that boosted his value. Nothing to do with the shoe. Chris debatable. I got I got I got another hot take to this is ion. I see Blake Griffin. Oh god. Okay. Blake Griffin's a really good bascay. But everyone's talking LeBron. He break Blake Griffin's on the pistons, and they're not even gonna make the pool they might make eight seat, but like Griffin wasn't this good in college. I'm Blake Griffin was nice got a lot of hype. Was he was. See I think Zion is going to be a Blake Griffin, which is a star. But he's getting LeBron hype. Like he goes to your team. He makes you a champion. That's the hype. This guy has keep in mind. The trajectory Blake Griffin was onto before he had a lot of injuries to start his career that might have affected. Some of that athletes says he's still a freak. But Blake Griffin is an if his eye on turns out to be Blake Griffin. Are we already at the level were that's a disappointment God's with how hyped up his you've been saying he's like LeBron. He's the most hyped prospects since LeBron I would argue that the hype for Zion surpass even the highschool hype of LeBron James, I would say, yeah. I would say, absolutely. I I'd never thought I'd see the day where someone's height would surpass LeBron James, but I agree with Mike. I think that's so if he turns into Blake Griffin that's a disappointment. That would be a disappointment. Yeah. Amac's contract guy who's Blake Griffin just made an all star game. That's a disappointment. Like if he turns into, but if if he's the most hype guys since LeBron James, and he is. He turns into Blake Griffin. That's fine. Blake's a great player. But that's not what we're expecting from Zion Williams at were expecting him to be the next phase of the league..

"Has been scored down goes Zion Carolina's going the other way, but pay no attention to that. What's really important happening on the other free throw line? Just thirty six seconds into the game. Everyone watching in disbelief watch the left shoe of Zion. Williamson just explode, but it's the right knee that he is holding and everyone could see the shoe the reaction shots remarkable from around the arena and you'll see them in a moment. Again. There's I on going down this President Obama, and you can clearly see the words his shoe broke. And so was it just the shoot. Was there a significant injury? Those were the questions of the moment as I left the floor. The conversation would come afterward. The new stable. We don't know how long he'll be out. It puts everyone in. Estate of trying to figure it out while while you're playing an outstanding team. That's not a good situation. I mean, I was hoping so can't really. Actually, I mean, I'm just gonna pray matured Hopi joke. I thought it was gonna turn shoes and get out there. But. See he wasn't going to come back game lose Tucker. I was wearing Nike shoes. As you saw. Here's a statement from Nike. We are obviously concerned what to wish Ziona speedy recovery. The quality and performance of our products are of utmost importance while this is an isolated occurrence. We are working to identify the issue. Also working literally all night has been our Maria Taylor who did the game from the sideline last night and hasn't had slept. She joins us bright and early this morning. What is the very latest as of this moment Maria on Zion? Well, as of right now, greenie Duke basketball, they do have a practice at one forty five this afternoon. So we still haven't received word on how severe the injury is designed. But I was speaking to one Duke official after the game. And he did say that doctors are very optimistic, and I was told to that afterwards when coach K was addressing the team. He was very positive in his feedback to the guys and after speaking to RJ Barrett and cameras they all said, it was difficult making adjustments on the fly, but they're praying for their brother for their teammate. And hoping that he can make it back as soon as possible. I heard you on sportscenter a little while ago. And I love you to share some of this with our audience about the feeling that Zion has for his teammates, and they in return for him because so much of the conversation this morning. We'll be even if he's healthy enough to continue playing should he and I know you've got a very strong feeling about that last night. Well, I do greenie because zions a guy that loves to compete, and he he loves this team. And that's one thing that RJ was telling me even after he put the phone down. And we're still talking about him. He said, that's that's my brother like we love being on the court together. And I think it's important to know because we think of these guys as five stars that are, you know, all about themselves all the time. But for everything that I've seen from Zion. He is also about this team in wanting to make sure that they're successful. And I could even tell I was kind of in the corner while he was trying to see if he could get back on the court, and he kept jogging back and forth and testing out that knee, and you could tell like he wanted to be out there. And right now, you know, his teammates all of the concern that was on their face in the locker room stuck with me. They all made sure that they talked to them before they did media after the game. I mean, they're concerned was really with him, and whether or not he would be able to be okay to to be healthy at some point this season, and obviously for his future. But these are guys that get along. And that's something that should not go on notice. While we tell the story and obviously talk about whether or not he will continue to play the rest of the season. Now. Again, show practice early in the afternoon, if as any information between now, and then we know you will bring it to us Maria will be with us all morning long. Meanwhile, let's show you what happened in the rest of the game, which almost felt like an afterthought..

"Game. Bob, Alabama with the call here on ESPN radio. Number two, Duke goes in diverge Inya, and they beat the Cavaliers were ranked number three eighty Chevy one with more. Let's welcome in our NBA insider job the Cavani brought to you by shell get triple action protection for optimal engine performance. Shelby. Power nitro plush premium gasoline Jonathan joins us Jonathan you watch this game Zion RJ Cam all three of these guys are pretty good RJ twenty-six today. Let's start with Zairean because he's the he's the one that everyone wants to know about why did he show you? Tonight. He he showed what he's been showing all year long. He's an absolute freak, and he's he's talked to guard, but honestly Virginia, and they did a solid job of being in front of making things difficult. I thought he played really good defense. And they're they're they're learning how to play with each other a little bit more these guys. But I mean, the story of the game was obviously to me was the way that Duke shot the ball. I mean when they're making threes like that. Made one as well. Hard to beat. And so I mean, they do everything and position list and they switch one through five and they're moving the ball better. And when they're really making threes like tonight. Team in the country that can beat them. Yeah. And when it comes to RJ Barrett. Speaking to make in three she is not a good three point shooter. But he knocked down six of ten tonight. So what is the impact of a game like this? When you go six for ten from beyond the arc as a badge shooter on your trash-talk. I don't think that NBA teams are going to be making decisions on one game or another. But I mean, they're going to be looking at his body of work which extends beyond just this season. They're going to be looking at you know, how he played in in in international competition with the Canadian national team, the international team as well. But I showed you his potential as a shot Nacre. I mean, I I always thought that he was the guy that. Going to be a good shooter in time. I mean for him. It's really a matter of shot selection. Knowing winter take those threes and proving his ability to make shots off the bounds. But he's always been a big game player. So it's not a surprise for me to see him step up in a game like this and have of this type of performance because it's always been type of guy that he's been. He is Jonathan Pavone. Joining us here on ESPN radio. NBA countdown. According to you, you have listed on ESPN dot com. Zion Williams didn't RJ Barrett in the top two potential picks Kim rightish at number four. At number three. You've got a kid by the name of John Moran Murray state. They're just underway on ESPN. Howdy evaluators. Take stock of a kid like Moran who doesn't really play against the the the upper echelon of competition yet you've got him as the best player in college basketball. Well, we have opportunities to see him against elite level competition. He had a phenomenal game against Alabama phenomenal game against Auburn also played at the Chris Paul skills academy this summer where we got to see a match up against the top of the top of college basketball as well as NBA players. And so I think that you know, you look at his athleticism, you you put him on a court with SEC athletes, and he is by far the best athletes on the floor that translates to the NBA level on his passing ability the potential that he shows you. Expensive instincts. Just the way that he heating get from to create its own shot. Anytime he wants on the four all that stuff translates to me. And so, you know, what would be ideal if we saw him and the NCAA tournament play a couple of games against you know, NBA level players that would be great. But I personally she ended up just having gone to see him in person. You know, you just can't teach that speed that explosiveness. I'm so I personally have seen what I needed. But there are NBA guys who who do feel like he has a little bit more left to prove stone. And they're it's not a great draft. When you look outside of Diane one, maybe RJ too. You know, there are a lot of question marks over who after that. Johnny Cavani at draft express on Twitter ESPN NBA draft analyst joining us here audience via the radio. Of course, there's the conference season starts the heat up.

"Miranda's. And we know that he's rising and everybody, you know, thinking that that would be the perfect guy for the next. I think a lot of this is going to have to do with you know, where they were they line up in the draft that they get the number one overall pick. They're not taking John they're gonna take Zion Williams. And I know it. Pointed that we didn't get. Berry. This kid is going to be fantastic to eat what we need at the guard spot. If we fall into the third spot or something like that. What we need. That's the thing. I've been saying is that the pick may be made for them right thing about this. So if they get the second or third pick now if they get the second pick they'll have to treat choose between, Iran and also Barry. Yeah. I just think the Zion right now is one of those transcendent guys. And now people are trying to nitpick always so big and his based on lettuce in his size, and what happens to be gained some weight. And all I just I don't know. I look at a guy I've never seen before. So that's why fixated on them. But it doesn't mean he's gonna be the best player in the draft. We see these crap shoots with the NBA draft lottery all the time. So but just put yourself in a position. The Knicks always seemed to fall a couple of spots be out of those top three. Just find yourself at a position where you finish in the bottom three. So you have just the same amount of percentage, you get the number one pick is everybody else, and then hopefully get one of those three players, but that is part of this process. You have to get one of the top players in this draft. And then you have to get one of the top guys in free agency. So of course, ions going to get the headlines more than anybody else. But it's not like we're dissing everybody else in the draft. You have to do is. You have.

"As good without trade. Jones Jones left after a collision in the first half. Coach K says he'll be out a while the shoulder injury as Duke suffers its first home loss as the number one team against an unranked opponent ninety one chances. They've played at home as a number one team. They had won their first ninety. They lose to Syracuse on Monday in overtime by four their first loss at home as a number one team against an unranked opponent. Of course, the big loss being the loss of trae Jones. He and Cam reddish had been on the court for eighty nine percent of Duke possessions, this season Cam reddish didn't play because he was sick. Trae Jones left in the first half with his injury ESPN analyst Seth green. Berg, Jay Williams Jones, the most important player on this Cape, including Zion Williams, and why that is because Duke this year is old school Duke old school, Duke. It's Tommy amateur. It's guarding the basketball. It's pressuring a basketball. It's disrupting the basketball which enables everyone off the ball to get up the line deny. What do they do? They create turnovers and get out in transition without trae Jones. Events of intensity without trade Jones. They lose that affects decides second-half searches outscored Duke in transition twenty four to twelve we try Jones on the court to outscored Syracuse seven to in that short period of time. I agree with you entree Jones. We've been saying that from the beginning of the year. He's the glue that keeps his team together. But looking on the bright side, you still have the number one number one and number two pick an NBA draft. You still have guys who can score a lot of points and look RJ Barrett. You have to revamp your game. I mean, if he needs to top forty five I meet tonight here at twenty three sixteen and nine. No, I understand that sets. But I'm saying if you need to move forward again need to find different ways five five days. Number two, pick in the draft yourself talent. Cam rightish back. But here's the deal. All those guys is good, especially Barrett. My opinion, you need someone who can get him the ball without trade Jones, the balls embarrass hands as a playmaker daughter. No one's getting him. The ball out in transition on an advanced past. No one's getting him. The ball on a quick ball of our for a drive in a kick or slash that is huge needs to be like James harden has an NBA right now. That's what RJ needs to do for this team. That's asking him. He can put up those numbers RJ Barrett. Twenty three points, sixteen rebounds, nine assists in the overtime loss for Duke Zion. Williamson at thirty five which was a Duke freshman record. Fifty eight combined bison Williamson at RJ Barrett. Second most by Duke freshman under coach K. Syracuse comes away with the victory. Second straight win against a top five team for the orange number seven Kansas eighty to seventy eight win over Texas for Kansas their tenth straight win over the longhorns pit knocked off number eleven Florida state, seventy five sixty to Florida state one and three in its last four games.
