    I think it really depends on how good Ewers is. Most elite quarterbacks play through their junior year. If Ewers is the stud we think he is, I don't see Arch sitting for 2 seasons waiting for him to turn pro.

    From what I’m reading, early playing time doesn’t seem to be at the top of the list for him.
    Plus if Ewers is the stud we think he is, he’ll probably be gone after playing 2 full seasons like we’ve been seeing as of late.

    Exactly. Manning would sit and learn for 1 year, then it's his team in '24.

    Ewers gotta beat out Card first, though.

    Ewers just turned 19 years old in March. If he only plays 2 years, that would mean he would declare for the draft before he turns 21.

    There is no minimum age requirement. 3 years out of HS.

    LHN gone - the huge mass of viewers must be heartbroken. Could use that money to pay Arch Manning. What's he gonna cost? $30mil? Lulz

    Sure, but not very common. He would have to be an ultra stud for this to happen.

    Right. That's his plan, why he went to OSU early. Now it's our plan.

    I imagine all of that is moving to ESPN+ eventually as part of the SECN brand.

    One positive for sure: no one’s going to miss Lowell Galindo calling football games

    Well he’ll be 21 by the draft which puts him as the same age as a ton of other QBs drafted. Doubt they’d care how old he is when he declares.

    But ya this is also under the premise that he plays up to his billing.

    I read some interesting takes the other day that LHN was essentially a bribe by ESPN to keep UT from moving to the would-be FOX-aligned Pac-16. Of course they didn't bank on all of our premier sports sucking for a decade, but losing Texas and OU to FOX would've been a big blow.

    Maybe but I remember hearing internally about it all the way back in 2008. Maybe 2007. It was a long time priority of the old AD.

    No idea if true but remember reading rumblings that Powers wanted to get UT academics into the same conversation as some of the Cali schools.
