Arch Manning lost his student ID one week into his first semester on campus at Texas.

It’s been one week since Arch Manning has been on campus in Austin and the new face of the Texas football program is already fumbling…

While it remains to be seen if this is ominous for the five-star quarterback from New Orleans, the school he didn’t pick to go to just repeated as national champions. It may be all gas and no brakes for Steve Sarkisian in Austin, but god forbid you touch his chest. He will explode on you like a spider monkey! Monkey business aside, do we want to know how he will feel about Arch’s lost ID?

You can’t lose yourself in the moment or you won’t own it. This is why Texas is still not back yet…

Arch Manning lose his Texas student ID, as college football world loses its mind

If you’re gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band. That lead guitar is hot, but what happens when you are fiddling in your pocket and you cannot find your trusty student ID? Sure, you can play the “don’t you know who I am card?” at the student union, gym or dining hall, but it may not be in the cards if you don’t have your card. Why count cards when you can count stars?

In truth, Manning may not even see the field this season. The plan all along was for him to redshirt and backup Quinn Ewers this fall. This would create a two-year gap between Texas quarterbacks. Of course, Ewers had an up-and-down first season as the Longhorns starter. With Hudson Card transferring to Purdue, Manning could be thrust into playing in year one before his family is ready.

Overall, Manning carries an absurd amount of pressure with him into Austin. Family aside, Texas has not been a consistently strong program since losing the national championship game to Alabama way back in 2009. With Texas joining the SEC sooner rather than later, the Longhorns are about to fall out of the frying pan and into the fire. It will be up to Manning and others to rise up.

Texas may have lost a Card this offseason, but Manning better find his and get caught up to speed.
