  1. High school football: Arch Manning, Quinn Ewers among Top 5 players to watch in 2021 2. QB — Quinn Ewers, Southlake Carroll (Southlake, Texas) Height: 6-3 | Weight: 205 Status: Committed to Ohio State | Class: Senior (2022) The top-rated player in the country became the sixth player in 247Sports composite history to receive a perfect 1.0000 rating last December — joining Rashan Gary (2016), Robert Nkemdiche (2013), Jadeveon Clowney (2011), Ernie Sims (2003) and Vince Young (2002). The five-star quarterback helped lead the Dragons to a runner-up finish in Texas' largest classification last season and was named the MaxPreps Sophomore Player of the Year in 2019. 4. QB — Arch Manning, Newman (New Orleans) Height: 6-3 | Weight: 200 Status: Uncommitted | Class: Junior (2023) There might not be a bigger name in high school sports and Manning has exceeded expectations through his first two seasons. He was named the MaxPreps Freshman Player of the Year in 2019 and followed that up with a selection on the Sophomore MaxPreps All-America team in 2020. Manning is the top-rated quarterback on 247Sports for the Class of 2023 and fourth-rated prospect overall. https://www.maxpreps.com/news/t4WAOwDC1EaSq6fTsNn7_A/high-school-football--arch-manning,-quinn-ewers-among-top-5-players-to-watch-in-2021.htm
  2. Alabama running back Keilan Robinson enters NCAA transfer portal “He’s doing great,” coach Nick Saban said. “He’s got great speed. He’s gotten bigger and stronger. He’s really playing fast. He’s playing really good on special teams. He’s a potential kickoff returner for us. He was before when he was a freshman, so that’s certainly a role, and he’s made great progress as a running back. He’s got pretty good carryover, knowledge and experience-wise, from the year before. I’m really pleased with what he’s been doing so far.” https://247sports.com/college/alabama/Article/Alabama-Football-running-back-Keilan-Robinson-enters-NCAA-transfer-portal-165997207/
  3. The other recruit drawing the most buzz is also involved with the Irish: Akayleb Evans. The former Tulsa cornerback recently announced a top 5 of Notre Dame, Missouri, Texas, Texas Tech and Jackson State. Evans took an official visit to Texas this week, per Horns247, and he’s got another scheduled for Notre Dame later this week, per Irish Illustrated. The Tigers are also very much in the mix. Keep in mind: Evans grew up in Texas. There was a thought upon his initial entry that’d he’d like to play closer to home. Speaking of the Longhorns, they regained the services of linebacker Ayodele Adeoye, who withdrew from the transfer portal on Tuesday. It’s a bit of curious case, but Adeoye is a former starter for Texas who missed most of last season with an injury. He’ll be behind the curve a bit after sitting out the spring with the new staff. But any depth is good depth for Texas’ linebacker room, which was already forced to add two pieces via the portal this offseason. https://247sports.com/Article/Transfer-portal-updates-Akayleb-Evans-Keilan-Robinson-Kevontre-Bradford-Jacquez-Jones-Cain-Madden-166062526/
  4. He's trying to help his buddy Saban in recruiting. F@#K Finebaum. ‘Texas is not a relevant program anymore’ according to ESPN’s Paul Finebaum https://www.yahoo.com/sports/texas-not-relevant-program-anymore-001200803.html
  5. It's good to see that were loading up on long snappers. Long Snappers U.
  6. Oklahoma is big favorite to win title, not much value in Texas Worst Wager -- Texas (+450): The combination of Steve Sarkisian's play-calling and recruiting chops has me excited to see what the first-year coach can do at Texas in the long run. I just don't love them as a team to bet on in 2021. The implied odds (18%) and payout aren't bad, but the Longhorns have perpetually underachieved relative to their expectations, and they've cycled through coaches trying to figure out how to take the next step. If this program was winning 10+ games a year, then I'd be more open to Sark coming in right away and winning a conference title. The potential is there, sure, but that's all it is for now. Texas hasn't won Big 12 hardware in the past decade, so I'm going to fade the team that still has the third-best title odds to do so. https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/2021-big-12-championship-odds-picks-oklahoma-is-big-favorite-to-win-title-not-much-value-in-texas/
  7. Tomorrow is the big day for recruiting to start heating up. It can only help to get recruits into Austin especially compared to Norman and College Station.

  9. Outlooks for each new hire from immediate success to shortest tenure Steve Sarkisian, Texas Why should Sark have to wait for delayed success? They have an Oklahoma problem in the Big 12 similar to the Alabama problem in the SEC, so why can't the Longhorns have immediate success? First, Sarkisian is not taking over an offense with an established starting quarterback, and he does not have the recent head coaching experience of Harsin or Malzahn. I think it's more fair to Sark to delay some of those championship expectations as he reacquaints himself to the head job and settles into the new routines and rhythms that will allow him to meet those expectations. There's no doubt Texas has College Football Playoff and even national championship potential with Sarkisian, though while he has the highest ceiling of the 2020-21 class, I think the real rewards of his tenure are at least a few years down the road. https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/2021-college-football-coaching-carousel-outlooks-for-each-new-hire-from-immediate-success-to-shortest-tenure/

  11. All right MB Hornfans is calling his shot. There is no doubt in your posting that Ewers is going to recommit back to Texas. On May 25th your saying in doesn't matter what happens during the season . Say hid for me to Quinn the next time you talk to him.
  12. All right Chip Patterson. Finally a national guy that knows how good Bijan can be. Sark has said that when he was at Washington and USC his job was to scheme an offensive play that would be successful. When he went to the NFL and the Atlanta Falcons he learned that he had to scheme plays for his best playmaker which was Julio Jones. Without a doubt Bijan is our number one player. Sark has also said in a passing play the most open player is the running back and Bijan prides himself on catching. A swing pass to Earl was always adventure since he wasn't good a catching passes and Ricky wasn't a weapon in the passing game. Big difference between this and PPF not having him listed in the top ten. Bijan Robinson will win the Heisman Trophy: Maybe the Heisman electorate has also gotten tired of the quarterback run, and Alabama wide receiver DeVonta Smith's 2020 win was a turning point in the way voters think about contenders. Smith matched statistical excellence with the intangible recognition that he was simply the most outstanding player on the field. Robinson has the potential to match that profile with his explosiveness leading to highlight-worthy plays and the all-purpose nature of how he could be used in Texas' offense basically guarantees yards and touchdowns both on the ground and through the air. Steve Sarkisian thrived as a game-planner and play-caller by moving Smith around and getting him the ball in space with Alabama last year, and he can do the same with Robinson with similar end-of-year results. https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/100-days-out-college-football-names-games-storylines-as-we-count-down-to-week-1-of-the-2021-season/
  13. Oh boy a 0-2 start. Potential upsets in 2021 season include rough start for Steve Sarkisian at Texas Barrett Sallee: Louisiana over Texas (Sept. 4) Sorry, Steve Sarkisian, your Texas tenure isn't going to get off to a roaring start. The Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns -- fresh off of a 10-1 season and a Sun Belt title -- will roll into Austin and spring the upset in Week 1 of the college football season. Coach Billy Napier, who probably should be coaching a Power Five team at this point, has put together back-to-back double-digit win seasons, returns "super-senior" quarterback Levi Lewis, running back Chris Smith and a whopping 96% of the offensive production from last season's squad. Meanwhile, Texas' defense finished seventh in the Big 12 in total defense last year, sixth in scoring defense and has undergone a coaching transition. Yikes. Texas is going to have to score 40 to have a chance -- and it won't be able to do it. Tom Fornelli: Arkansas over Texas (Sept. 11) One of the things I look for when trying to identify potential upsets is an early-season game. Teams usually aren't operating at 100% efficiency yet, and are more prone to the kind of stupid mistakes good teams often have to make to lose to teams they're supposed to beat. I also look for advantageous spots in the schedule, and I think this could be one for an Arkansas team that was pretty feisty last season. Under a new coach in Steve Sarkisian, Texas will have to open its season with a tough Louisiana team that has just about everybody back from a team that finished 10-1 last season. Arkansas gets to open the season with Rice. In other words, the Hogs get a more leisurely warmup while Sark and the Horns are in for a scrap. That could lead to Texas being ripe for an upset in Fayetteville. https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/100-days-out-college-football-names-games-storylines-as-we-count-down-to-week-1-of-the-2021-season/
  14. Does LSU have a shot at landing 2023 QB Arch Manning? https://www.yahoo.com/sports/does-lsu-shot-landing-2023-011143740.html
  15. Uh oh. Our punter is rated ahead of our two QBs. Texas football roster rankings, Nos. 10-6: Which quarterback has the advantage? https://www.dallasnews.com/sports/texas-longhorns/2021/05/19/texas-football-roster-rankings-nos-10-6-which-quarterback-has-the-advantage/
  16. Manning is my number one recruit that I want. I watched a replay of a game that ESPN broadcasted last year and he looks like the real deal. He looks like a smaller version of Peyton and he even wears 16. A basketball coach that played with Peyton said he further along at this stage then Peyton and Eli at the same age and that's scary. Arch won the starting job as a freshman when he beat out a senior. Besides his skills on the field, if Arch commits to Texas then he should be a recruiting magnet to UT and he's going to bring a lot of attention to us since he's a Manning. If I read that Sark likes Ewer better than I'll switch.
