Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NCAA. Throughout the year we ask questions of the most plugged-in Texas Longhorns fans and fans across the country. Sign up here to participate in the weekly emailed surveys.

When Quinn Ewers was taken to the locker room in the second half of Saturday’s game against Houston, Texas fans got a look at the future of the quarterback position.

The future has become the present with Ewers out against BYU and likely longer after suffering a shoulder sprain in his throwing arm.

That means Maalik Murphy will step into the starting role but Steve Sarkisian did not rule out Arch Manning getting playing time going forward with both QBs receiving first-team reps during practice.

While Murphy would start as of Monday, would you like to see Manning split reps with Murphy during Saturday’s game against BYU?

The Longhorns opened as 19.5-point favorites over the Cougars but that has dropped two points to 17.5
