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

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.

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.

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.

McCaffrey seems to provide a spark to the whole team. He shows decisiveness, leadership and toughness.

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.

Do I think it could be better, yes ….. but MR didn’t have a lot to work with considering frost didn’t recruit much if any. The D of course is a 180 turn around and I like MR philosophy of building a brotherhood bond between his players. He’s turned the ship around into the right direction !

Starting with a new system, new coach, starting with a worthless QB. The team stayed together and had the highest retention in the Big10. That says it all for me.

I believe the culture and brotherhood has taken a big step. Players are a team. Now we must get past the stigma of believing we can win the 4th quarter and close games. Now instilling the confidence.

Definitely building, and willing to make adjustments for any missteps. Aside from QB, is improving in every area. And QB is looking good with current recruits. Hopefully has staff straightened out.

Reasonable to impressive results given the circumstances. More importantly were his actions/decisions to further develop the entire program.

Hitting the ground running and get a recruiting class signed, difficult with a failed NE past He did miss on the quarterback and Purdy lost in the shuffle but excellent D w Tony W, hopeful offensive signs, better special teams. Hopefully a winning record and good QB play, Future looks bright

Much lot rot can be unnoticed for a long time, so can internal improvements, while the record wasn't a lot better, this program is in infinitely better shape than it was 14 months ago.

Everything but winning. But Satterfield will never give us the solid offense a championship team needs. I, along with many others, say we MUST be a run first offense (and to a fault). Anything else is a loser. I give Matt a B+ his first year.

Simple look where we came from, 8 years of loses, Riley & Frost total disappointments. In both cases the head coaching job at NE was too big for both of them. We now have a process just follow it and it is impressive so far! GBR!!

Love Rhule and truly believe in him picture. However his game management cost us a couple of games. You are paid to have situational awareness and planning. he does SO MICH SO well, but he did not manage end of games well in terms of clock management and understanding his limits with personnel

He seemed to want to fail the first year, so that subsequent years (with "His" guys) would look better.

A 5 win season is not up to Nebraska standards. Same old story losing close games and turnovers. Jeff Sims was a total failure

There were some really questionable calls in some games re: going for a first down instead of going for a FG that cost them several games and trying some trick and fancy plays in the red zone but as others have said, he seems to have the program moving in the right direction.
