When asked about all the different options on offense, Martinez said having so many weapons to work with will make his job much easier this season. He said he will leave it up to second year offensive coordinator to determine who will get the touches.
With the season just 5 days away, Martinez said the whole offense was excited to show how far its come from last season. He said some of the biggest differences would be better execution, a wider variety of plays, and the tempos they will play at.
Martinez said he’s noticed more time in the pocket during practice, which he credits to overall improvement of the entire offense.
At the begining of fall camp, Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini said he would like his team to be more dedicated to the pass in 2012. Martinez said if it were up to him, NU would be about a 60, 40 split in terms of passing and run play calls.
When asked why, he said it was because he was that confident in the passing game and how far it’s come this offseason.
Most people feel that Nebraska has the best wide receiver corp in the Big 10. With that in mind Martinez said he expects Beck to rotate a lot at receiver on Saturday.
