The 2024 and 2025 fall seasons in Austin, Texas are on track to be ‘Arch Madness’.

The aforementioned plan set in place between Coach Sark and Arch Manning has him in position to be the starting quarterback of the Longhorns in 2024 and 2025.

Ideally, these will be his redshirt freshman and redshirt sophomore seasons.

If all goes to plan the Longhorns will be a national force led by Manning during these two seasons. The hope is he will light the college game on fire with a combination of his high-level football IQ and physical tools while surrounded by some of the best playmakers in the sport.

As of right now, if he plays well enough, I expect Manning to only stay in Austin for three seasons. If Sarkisian and AJ Milwee develop him correctly, I would be shocked if his name is not called early on in the 2026 NFL Draft.
