Arch Manning May Press for Texas Starting QB Gig

Arch Manning May Press for Texas Starting QB Gig

Namely, Arch Manning flashed his College Football Betting talent. And he put the Texas Spring Game on top of the sports world. For one day, Manning confounded his many haters and doubters. He also defied comparisons to the career ghosts of Ron Powlus and Jimmy Clausen. Not much in the way of fireworks was expected at Saturday’s Texas Longhorn spring game. Starting quarterback Quinn Ewers saw limited action, as was planned. Head coach Steve Sarkisian said he knows what he has in Ewers, who is projected to be starting for the third straight year.

Arch Manning Draws Betting Interest for Texas

Instead of Quinn Ewers, Sarkisian wanted to invest time in observing Arch Manning. Fans were fine with that because they much preferred to see the sophomore Manning anyway. Ewers is indeed a talented quarterback. And he is expected to have a very good season. But Manning’s name and potential are monstrous.  Following his spring game performance, sportsbook betting stock on Manning is higher than ever before.

On his first pass attempt of the spring game, Arch Manning threw a 75-yard touchdown pass. Subsequently, he completed his first ten passes. Manning finished the first half 11-13 for 189 yards and two TDs. To summarize, Manning finished 19-26 for 355 yards and three TDs with one interception. If not for a dropped pass, he would have tallied another College Football Betting TD completion.

Last season, Sarkisian was concerned that Manning hardly played. Thus, he desperately needed to play football. Sarkisian remains adamant that Ewers is the starter. But that will not stop the Arch Manning fanatics from demanding their hero gets the nod. Certainly, Manning will be pressing Ewers in summer camp. And if Ewers falters in any way, Manning looks ready to assume the mantle.

Still, not everyone is drinking the Burnt Orange Kool-Aid. Manning has plenty of detractors. Millions of fans detest Manning for his name. It is said that he only got where he is by having one of the most royal names in the sport. Cause by his being the nephew of Peyton and Eli Manning and the grandson of Archie Manning. Additionally, his high school career at Isidore Newman in New Orleans is minimized under a low level of competition.

Manning was a consensus five-star recruit by recruiting services. Although not everybody thought he should be rated that highly. Regardless, he had sit-downs with all of the major programs of his choice and could go anywhere he pleased. But Manning will never escape the stigma of being considered privileged. Even if he wins a national championship.

The best evidence of that was on social media after the spring game. Many posts on X (Formerly Twitter) were filled with criticism despite his great performance. To these fans, Manning is seen as a Blue Blood trust fund baby. Also, he plays for one of the most historic (but also entitled and hated) programs in college football. Indeed, the Manning-Texas combination is jet fuel for loathing and resentment.
