Thanks. By the way, Martinez inability to throw has nothing to do with the B1G. He couldn't throw last year in the Big XII. Maybe he'll improve as a passer but for now, it's becoming very apparent as to why other schools were looking at him as a safety.

He had one good passing game...last year vs Oklahoma State. Other than that, his mechanics are terrible, he either lofts it in the air or shot-puts it. He always throws behind the receivers. The running game was working just fine in the first 1.5 quarters, there was no reason to try to force the passing game. In fact, we should try to avoid it as much as possible until Martinez can improve.

I dunno - last year against Texas he had several near perfect throws that were dropped by his receivers. That's what lost the game for them.

That is true, but I have yet to see anything this year. A good throw here and there yes, any form of consistency, no.

Really?? I could have sworn the officiating had a lot to do with it!

You are thinking of Texas A&M. Officiating in the Texass game was fine.

Maybe there was a couple bad calls, but it most certainly did not decide the outcome of the game like the A&M game. Dropped touchdown passes did.

As far as football is concerned, I think Nebraska is a good fit in the Big 10. But, if one is talking about overall athletics and academics, without a doubt, Texas is perfect for the Big 10 not Nebraska.

The Big Ten Conference is known for its academics as well as its athletics. Prior to the addition of Nebraska, it was the only Division I conference to have all its members in the Association of American Universities.

The Big Ten has 11 of its 12 members (the exception being Nebraska) affiliated with the AAU, a prestigious collection of more than 60 research institutions, and leads all conferences in the total amount of research expenditures.

However, Nebraska does lead the NCAA with a record of 291 Academic All-Americans (followed by Notre Dame with 221).


On Wisconsin!
