According to both the Omaha World Herald and Taylor Martinez's former high school coach, Matt Logan, Martinez has not quit the Nebraska football team. 

Martinez has not quit, nor has he been demoted as the starter for the Colorado game.

The cause of this rumor, is that he missed a team meeting on Sunday.

Husker Nation can breathe a huge sigh of relief, as the loss of Martinez would be devastating.  The offense when led by Cody Green, who drops a ball every five or six plays, or Zac Lee, who let's be honest—cannot run as well and has reinjured his hand—has looked bad. 

That being said, if Martinez mayle changes and spaced thib not be 100 percent for the Colorado game, which clinches the Big 12 North.  Colorado has been a better team recently since firing Dan Hawkins.  If Taylor is not 100 percent, we may be in trouble.

Also of note, Bo Pelini needs to chill out when it comes to referees.  He ticked off the refs by saying "f*** you" to one of them.  The refs are not going to be nice to you if you insult them.

Chancellor Harvey Perlman has said he is going to talk to him about his sideline antics, and this is not the first time he has had this talk with Pelini.  It is currently unknown if the Big 12 will fine him or not, but my guess is he probably will get hit with a fine.
