The Nebraska Cornhuskers have had a tumultuous week since the second half against UCLA. From the 38 straight points given up to the twitter lashing from Tommie Frazier, big red nation seemed to be under siege. Yet, that was nothing compared to the leaked two year old tape of Bo Pelini lashing out at fair-weather fans and reporters. Now on Friday September 20, Taylor Martinez is doubtful to play against South Dakota State according to CBSsports.com.
Due to a turf toe injury, Pelini told reporters that Taylor Martinez would remain doubtful up until game time. The injury has kept Martinez from participating in practice all week.
Redshirt freshman Tommy Armstrong Jr. will likely get the start if Martinez can’t go, but senior Ron Kellogg III will also see snaps in the contest.
It was evident that something wrong with Taylor Martinez during the UCLA game. While, he threw three touchdown passes in the first half, Martinez never had the burst in the running game, and the turf toe may explain why UCLA so easily corralled him.
Nebraska fans may get to see the glimpse of the future on Saturday. They are hoping for better results because their recent past has not been pretty.
