Once again, it all comes back to T-Magic.
Martinez, still one of the most enigmatic players in Nebraska history despite his mind-boggling statistics, will come into his senior season at NU with something to prove.
Absent injury, Martinez will likely own most of Nebraska’s career offensive records. But 2013 is his chance to put his name on silverware in the Nebraska trophy room.
For the last two years, Martinez has worked on his own during the offseason to become a better passer. If he can make anywhere near the kind of strides next season he did between 2011 and 2012, then Martinez could truly have a special 2013 campaign.
If you combine his experience with offensive coordinator Tim Beck’s experience at play-calling, an improved array of offensive weapons surrounding him, and a softer schedule to navigate, 2013 should be the year where Martinez truly writes his name in Nebraska’s record books—and trophy cabinet.
