    Taylor Martinez potentially transferring????

    I know I know this sounds absolutely ridiculous..... BUT a HUGE Husker buddy of mine says the rumors are flying around Lincoln about this because he is apparently a little upset about being yanked Saturday... Anybody in Nebrasky know if this has any legs?? I don't see it happening but worth finding out!

    No chance it happens. Some (idiot) pundits were throwing him in the Heisman discussion before the Texas game. No way he transfers because Nebraaka put in a more pure passer when down by two scores in the second half.

    You will need to explain to me why it was idiotic to throw in in the Heisman discussion prior to the Texas game...

    Boy, that'd sure be something if he split. Probably just typical Husker overreaction, though. I'd take him, even though he can't throw.

    Re: Taylor Martinez potentially transferring????

    I just don't see this happening. Nebraska was down 2 scores and needed more passes since their run game was going nowhere. He will bounce back just fine. Even though I would love to see him leave and Nebby go downhill the rest of the year.

    I'd quit if they pulled me for Zac Lee.

    Re: Taylor Martinez potentially transferring????

    I think your buddy told you wrong. It's pretty typical of Husker fans as you all know the N = Knowledge joke. But going back to the rumor mill. The whole school is transferring to the Big 10 you might want to let them know that.

    If its true (which I'm sure its not), then Taylor Martinez is the biggest baby ever.

    Because he was a freshman who was yet to face a single decent defense all season....

    Funny how Martinez and Denard Robinson don't look amazing when they face good defensive teams. Also its the difference between AA against Texas Tech and AA against Iowa, Oklahoma, etc.

    Re: Taylor Martinez potentially transferring????

    They do have Cody Green and another kid redshirting that was a 4star recruit. I would not be shocked if they lose one or two QB's this offseason.

    Hey Martinez, how about moving 3 hours east and stay in the Big 12 (or the New BIG 10).

    I wont argue that. However, going into the Texas game, he was a very legitimate Heisman contender. It was not even close to idiotic to throw him in that conversation.

    As already said, he was a true freshman that hadn't faced a real team yet. Washington is vastly overrated. The best team he played was Kansas State, and their defense can't be that good, because we put up what, 27 in that game?

    He was pure hype, same as Robinson. I'm not saying they won't be good, but way overhyped this year.

    Nebraska would have won all of the games they won regardless of who was at quarterback.

    he threw the ball just fine on saturday... had about 3 dropped passes, and 2 would have been for touchdowns... Texas defensive game plan was just very good.

    TM is by far the best QB they have... not even close.
