He deserves a shot. We have seen what Martinez can and can't do for 2+ years. Not sure if it is confidence or what, but he seems to have regressed. Being challenged for the starting job may be the best thing for him. Put up or sit down. Hope McCaffery plays well tomorrow! GBR

Better arm velocity and accuracy. Better runner as well.

Give the kid a shot. Some players are practice players and some game players. Let's see if Luke has the "it" factor to elevate the play of those around him. If it's not working we can always see if Martinez is any better coming off the bench.

2 players have said his calling of plays has No cadence or tempo causing off sides or slow blocking, sounds like a coaching problem

We need badly need an offensive spark. Let's give Luke a chance to see if he can provide it.

weve stuck with Matinez long enough. With 2 losses, this season will be a bust. Time to look to the future.

I have been an avid Cornhusker fan my entire life. Martinez is good for a turn-over every game and does not know how to win ball games. Its time to move on to McCaffrey. Sorry Martinez, you're garbage

Let's see, decisiveness LM gets the edge, running threat LM gets the edge, precision passing LM gets the edge, the only thing Martinez has the edge on is experience which isn't helping him at all.

Martinez is no longer is his freshman self. The O needs a spark, time to let someone else energize it.

We need a spark, and unfortunately Adrian lost his after the 2018 season.

Better passer and greater information processing bandwidth. Use Martinez as a changeup QB and slot receiver. Gotta get all the talent on the field and then use it.

Martinez, while talented, waits a second to long with his targets. This gives defense time to catch up. McCaffrey has a faster release and better timing. More playing time will fix his misses.

McCaffrey is a fast blinker and can process the field faster than Martinez. As soon as he came in against Northwestern, I saw receivers like Betts and Flemming catch passes.

They're due right? And since I'm 42, and used to us winning 9 games every year for most of my life why would I change my expectation now? 8-4, win the bowl game, 9-4. Should be the minimum expectation for every Nebraska fan. Always! Then with playoff expansion coming, let's get in the mix!! GBR

Of the 3 things needed to win; player acquisition, development and deployment, acquisition is the best predictor of future success. By far in fact. Our roster is built because of great recruiting, development and roster management. It's really kinda all on the coaches to deploy well. If they do, yes

Better o line makes a running game. 4 large backs doesn't hurt.

Strongest SF team yet. We've been close to beating our west div tormentors for the last 2 years. It happens this year. 3 wins vs Wi-IA-MN-Nw-Mi.

I want to believe they can, but until the issues going on over the last several years stop....it's going to be more of the same.

Even with the difficult schedule they have the talent to get 8 wins. Unfortunately, this will also take team execution, discipline and a swagger we have yet to see. I'm hoping for 6 wins and a bowl. Anything more is gravy.

Huskers have not shown ability to beat even avg teams and are much more likely to LOSE one of the games they should win. then upset a team that they are underdogs in. This looks like a bubble 6 win team, at best.

Why would we think this team could win 8 games? I always had rose colored glasses on over the last couple of decades. I took them off and, whew, Steve Pederson screwed us. Prove it to me!!!

I'll reserve judgment until we've seen him consistently come down with catches in traffic over the course of a season. A JD in hand is better than 2 Omar's in the bush.

No clue yet - he's got all the measurements but has yet to be healthy until now. I think key will be can he stay healthy and can he play through minor injuries.
