    What is the deal with the thread title?

    Is there a joke I'm not getting, or did OP have a brain fart?

        I don't know what could have happened there. It's fixed now.

          Looks to me like you had a brain fart there “Arch”.

          retarded Thread title was intentional…

            Good thing these Manning guys are good athletes because they sure are a homely lot.

                  I got the homely part, but not the good athlete part. Does that make me at least a 3*?

                    Good article about the impact of NIL on non-P5 schools all up and down the spectrum, especially small colleges. https://www.si.com/college/nebraska/...ny-as-it-helps

                      Yes, we would have. Who wouldn't have? Eli Holstein has the better measurables though and has actually won a state championship in Louisiana. Arch is getting a lot of hype because of his last name only. His film is underwhelming to say the least. With our qb room i'm not so sure Arch would have even ever seen the field.

                        Look more like John Elway than any of the Mannings.

                          You're right. Was it The Boz ( can we say "The" Boz anymore? ) that called Elway " horse face"?

                            From a purely physical standpoint, I think you're right. As a player, Arch could be incredible or he could be average, just like any other 5-star QB. (It's impossible to say this without sounding like sour grapes, but whatever.) The big value with Arch at this point is the recruiting bump he provides and the social capital that comes along with having a "Manning" at your school. But in the end, he's gonna have to show it on the field. He seems like a good kid, raised well, doesn't have the arrogance you might expect from somebody in his position, so that makes it a bit harder to root for him to fail, but it must be done, anyway.

                            Alabama doesn't need that recruiting bump nearly as much as Texas and Ole Miss, etc.

                              Funny thing is, Arch isn't nearly as goofy-looking as his uncles.

                                  $10MM sounds like aggie math. Idk if it’s real, but would be more than any NFL rookie not drafted in the 1st round. Wild.

                                    Peyton and Eli Manning went to the same high school and played against the same level of competition as Arch. Arch was recruited hard by Keep your politics off the board Streeeter (OC and QB coach) and Dabo Swinney at Clemson, and by Jeff Lebby at Ole Miss. Maybe they never looked at his tape or watched him play...just went by "Manning."

                                      No doubt the kid is getting some mileage out of the family name--as does any recruit with a famous legacy--but I think the backlash is going overboard. He's clearly talented. All the pieces are in place for a spectacular failure, true, but it's just as likely that he ends up a solid-to-excellent college quarterback.

                                        Some people say his dad, Cooper, was better than both Peyton and Eli.

                                          The only 2 games I saw last year was the awful one against a Florida school where he looked terrible. And the playoff game where he looked average. Hard to see a lot in that sample size. But I think most of the backlash is because of how protected he is and isn't doing the camps like everyone else.

                                            The fact that he’s going to try out Texass first where hype goes to die is perfect. We’ll see how he looks after he leaves Austin in a year or two.

                                              Sad to say I think he will end up as Chris Simms v2.0 when all is said and done. He's coming along at a bad time with Brent rebuilding our defense.

                                                Say what you want about Chrissy he won a decent percentage of his games. Arch may win half of his games.

                                                  Jesus... this kid must look absolutely god-like in camps and 7-on-7, because neither his stats nor his tape impresses me. I don't get it. I mean, I do get it... but I don't get it. This is all about clout and media narratives. Some crazy-ass tinfoil hat shit.





                                                  Again: If his name was Arch Smith or Arch Jones, he'd be a three-star recruit for Lousiana Tech.

                                                      I wonder if Peyton's son will have as much hype around him if he plays QB in HS in a couple years. I'm pretty sure he'll be HS age in like 2024 or 2025.

                                                        Who? Cooper himself?
