With Arch Manning (nephew of Eli & Peyton) committing to Texas on Thursday, Ben Maller says the odds are stacked against Manning living up to the hype that has surrounded him for the last couple of years.

Ben Maller: "The Manning name is a double edged sword. On one hand, you're made man when you're a Manning...the other side of that double-edged sword is the curse of high expectation. Media praise = rat poison. I keep going back to Texas being Armageddon for college football in terms of winning."
