story where another top rated QB committed to the Crimson Tide, which probably means they either took themselves out of the running, or Manning himself told them he ain't coming. So now, the two schools still "left standing" are Texas and Georgia.
Could a Manning really be a Dawg? It just seems too weird to contemplate.
A more accurate statement would have likely been that this kid's going to get national NIL deals no matter where he goes, so he isn't concerned with some underhanded booster giving him an "NIL deal" to get him to sign with a certain team.
I'm sure Arch wants to win championships, but it's not like he is going to turn down the "legal" money that is thrown at him once he gets to school.
I'm sure all of the money-chasers want to win championships too and they think they are good enough for it to happen no matter which highest bidder they choose.
The thing about Arch Manning is that he’s a legacy player. NIL will not be the most important thing to him. He is chasing championships. Since uga is poised to make another run and bama showing signs of decline, i’d say it’s a valid possibility.
football, in COLLEGE football, none of them have won a National Championship. Peyton came the closest, winning the 1997 SEC Championship, but losing his chance at a Natty when his Tennessee team was soundly beaten in the Orange Bowl, 42-17, by Nebraska.
As much as I hate to say it, it makes sense. They are losing their QB. The Manning family has deep ties to the SEC, and if I was a young man trying to make my mark, I wouldn't go to Ole Miss or UT and follow in another Manning's shoes.
He will go SEC, and the most logical choice is UGA. Whatever the kid wants to do is what is best. We play with who decides to come to Clemson and we have plenty of talent to play with anyone, anywhere. We won't win them all, but we will win more than we lose.
