— I like Pat Narduzzi and what he’s done at Pitt but c’mon. The pointed comments regarding how Kedon Slovis used the portal the right way as a shot at Jordan Addison hit me wrong. Addison used it the right way as well. He went through the spring, didn’t like what he saw, and left. It’s life.

Arch Manning will end up at Texas, that’s the feel I have. Georgia, Alabama, LSU, Ole Miss, and others are options and perhaps better options honestly but I’ve been saying this since his first visit to Austin.

He will likely commit to the Longhorns this summer but a change of heart is possible if they are horrible and if Steve Sarkisian is under fire again.

— Do you realize that now any new coach at a new school who wins a national title now will not get the credit they deserve. They will have “bought it”. Do you realize that any coach who works his ass off to recruit a player out of high school or the portal will get no credit for the hard work as the player chose the school “for NIL”? And do you know more and more good head and assistant coaches are going to look for jobs in the NFL as college football becomes impossible to navigate? Yep.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
