Nebraska football will enjoy a rare treat in 2013: a four-year starter at quarterback. In a program built on developing talent and not headlining recruits, this is a truly unique circumstance.
Taylor Martinez has been through a lot as the Huskers’ signal-caller. From his coming-out party against Washington his freshman year, to his standout performance at Kansas State, to his forgettable night in Madison that unfurled a media firestorm directed at the young quarterback, Martinez has seen a lot.
But as seasoned of a veteran as he is, the finale of his Husker career will not be without its own challenges.
