    Arch Manning to Texas

    Originally posted by Dr. X View Post

Every defeat will be blamed on Sark (or whoever replaces him next year) and his flaws will be minimized as being the fault of a "poor supporting class" or system. Then he'll probably look good in his pro day and combine, and be a first-round QB.

    BUT, even in the extremely unlikely event that UT abandons its entitled pussified culture and actually starts winning, then Arch becomes the savior of UT. He can't lose. Even if he loses, he wins.
    Looks like Arch agrees with me. Awesome!

    Goddam, I haven't been this excited about a UT recruit since Chrissy Simms!

    This truly is put up or shut up time for the shorthorns and Sark.

      Wow, he actually committed to them. I look forward to beating him.

        You have to wonder what position this puts Ewers in as of right now. Does he just think, "oh, I'll portal out if I lose out to Arch in 2023?" They just got him from Ohio State.

          Now that the 600-lb. gorilla is in the UT QB room, which of Hudson Card (last season's backup to Casey Thompson), Quinn Ewers and Maalik Murphy (freshman recruit out of Inglewood, CA) leaves first?

            Ewers can't portal out without missing a year, right?

              He must really like the free weed that Texas has provided over the years or perhaps he likes all of the gay bars there or perhaps both.

                I’m just glad he picked Texas and not Georgia. With us taking Eli Holstein there was no way he was coming to Bama.

                  Imagine what UT is going to spend on payroll if they have 30+ million per class. Going to be 100+ million in a few years.

                    It’s just my guess but once he arrives in Austin it won’t be long before he’s known as Arch Mehnning.

                        Have to chuckle at some of the jabs at Arch and Texas because of his commitment. OU certainly wouldn't have told Arch, they didn't want or need him, we'd be thrilled if he were to sign with us.
                        I'm all OU for over 60 years but realize jealousy and hate run deep on these boards towards Texas which is OK by me. Just keep it in perspective.

                            This is DB, sorry.

                            Also, OU has a 5* QB for 2023.

                                So according to 247, there's only been 3 QBs ever given a perfect grade by them, and now UT has two of those three both in the same room with Ewers and Manning? Vince Young was the other, btw. But it's going to be fun watching them screw this up.

                                  Austin is now a transgender-bender wasteland. He'll be gone.

                                    I wouldn't write Ewers' eulogy yet. Arch is a good QB playing against pretty bad comp (from the highlights I saw), but he also seems pretty maxed out without the physical gifts you'd expect from one of the greatest prospects ever.

                                    Nice kid, good QB, it appears they kept a good head on his shoulders but I just don't see a program changing talent, not that the hype is his fault.

                                      Most likely Manning will sit for a year behind Ewers final year as a junior.

                                        Bama lost out on him but no doubt they would have taken him if he wanted. No need to try and spin it.

                                          That's a wholesale change in approach for top prospects these days. Almost all of them go where they can play NOW! If it is to get more experience over 4 years or to get enough to get drafted early, they want to play. He may stay for 2 years backing up Ewers, or he may have the confidence that he can beat him out, injury, etc.

                                            So, will Ewers be a freshman or a sophomore this year ('22)?

                                              '21 was his freshman year at Ohio State, so he'll be sophomore this year.

                                                Good for UT ! Manning might be able to get them to a winning season and a bowl game.

                                                      What might Peyton and Eli have told young Arch?

                                                      I think they told him it doesn't matter which college he chooses, just play football like he knows how and have fun, don't worry about the rest because his name is Manning and that will be worth something after college.

                                                      If so, he is not worried about getting a ring, QB development or how far his parents will have to travel to see him play much as he wants to go someplace with a great party scene.

                                                      Austin probably beats Tuscaloosa all to heck.
                                                      Only to those of your ilk and persuasion. I'd rather live in Bowlegs or Gotebo than the reeking cesspool that Austin, TX, has become.

Vince Young was the other, btw. But it's going to be fun watching them screw this up.
                                                                            Their players are always overrated, so watching them fail is inevitable.

                                                                            Manning is 5 star only because of his name. He’s a good QB but he’s already overrated. Sark is gonna be drinking heavily from failed expectations on his team and his QB.

                                                                                  I think alot of it is the texas fans hyping things up every year and telling OU fans and everyone else how great they are.

                                                                                  Maybe a very small part of it is jealousy just for the fact that Texas can suck for a decade and still land multiple 5 star recruits, while OU has been way better usually with less amounts of ballyhoo'd talent

Teams with 20+ five star players, almost no 3 star players.

After a RS year learning competetive football, he could be a darn good QB.

                                                                                            I disagree. I feel about the same as I did when Chris Simms committed to Texas. I am much more concerned about Texas getting 3 top linebackers and D linemen and O linemen that a single QB. Time will tell, but I predict he will not have a dominant college career.

                                                                                            I don't see elite athletic ability. I would be much more concerned if they had a Vince Young type athlete coming in to play QB.

                                                                                            Honestly, it has zero to do with jealousy for me. I am not convinced he is going to be the next hall of fame QB plus, guys like Major Applewhite and Colt McCoy always worried me more in the Texas game than a Chris Simms or Arch Manning type. Those local Texas kids, that play for the love of the state and university elevate the team oftentimes.

                                                                                            I think OU can do better honestly.

A number of what we now call metrics support this claim, but cinching it is this: Arnold's first name is Jackson; Manning's is Arch. Seriously, "Arch?" What the hell kinda' name is that? "Arch" is an adjective ("he had an arch attitude") or a noun, as in a bridge. It would be like naming a kid "Angle" or "Oval." Yeah, I know, he's named for Archie whose name is really Archibald, so why not name him "Ibald?" Seriously, though, the kid can (we say this now) really spin it, on long passes with a high arch.
