Fans and analysts exist in a state of overreaction each offseason.
This year is no exception, after Texas Longhorns true freshman quarterback – an early enrollee – debuted with a lackluster performance in Texas’ spring football game last month.
But hold on, Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian said recently on 105.3 The Fan, per Clutch Sports.
“He’s on the right trajectory that he should be on,” Sarkisian said of Manning. “There’s a transition to the scheme that he hasn’t been accustomed to, there’s a transition to the speed of the game and how it goes. There were a lot of really good moments that Arch had throughout the spring, and there was a couple tough days.”
Sarkisian continued, “He’s going to be a great Longhorn before it’s all said and done.”
