As I write this, 7-5 Wisconsin holds an overwhelming (and stunning) 56-17 lead over 10-2 Nebraska in the Big 10 championship game. Pretty much everything Nebraska has tried has gone wrong…except one spectacular play by quarterback Taylor Martinez. It seems like so long ago.
On a 4th-and-1 play from inside the Minnesota Gophers 15 yard line, Cornhuskers quarterback Taylor Martinez threw a backwards pass to Aaron Green. The ball was fumbled forward and went out of bounds. Since a team can’t gain yardage on a fumble and it was already fourth down, the obvious call would’ve been Minnesota ball. Nope. It was ruled a Nebraska first down.
Before he led Nebraska to the biggest comeback in school history, Cornhuskers quarterback Taylor Martinez was jacked up by Ohio State’s Christian Bryant. Fortunately for Martinez, Nebraska would come back from 21-point second half deficit to beat Ohio State 34-27.
The Los Angeles Times broke a story today that Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez’s father, Casey Martinez, made a licensing agreement with the school a year before his son signed to play there.
Nebraska Cornhuskers head football coach Bo Pelini was annoyed with quarterback Taylor Martinez about something during Saturday night’s loss to Texas A&M.
