Someone on Bleacher report listed him as our first ever true freshman starter at qb this morning.  No clue if that is accurate.

Damn. Shouldn't have let my head get the better of me and stuck with my post-spring prediction of Martinez.

 

Either, it's game week. :koolaid2:

I think he's the first ever true freshman QB to start a home opener, but not necessarily first ever to start (not entirely sure though).

To start the season that might be true.

He’s the first true freshman to start a season opener.  Frazier and Cody Green also started games as True Freshmen.

When was the last time a true freshman QB started a game? Have we had anyone since Frazier? Crouch had redshirted and Newcombe was playing WR as a true freshman.

And Frazier didn’t start game one. His start came later- maybe early October?

Dont get down, may have been a coin flip decision by the end.

I am really excited about this. Many of us thought Gebbia was probably the starter because we thought he was more of the lower error point guard type. But if AM is just as good of point guard and with his play making ability; that is exciting!

I think the guys voting for Gebbia are the same people who bet against Nebraska on game days.  Either way they will be happy crowd.  I think deep down most of us feel Martinez is the guy who will be leading us in the future championships.  I like them both but deep down really hope it's Martinez.

Ya. Martinez is the first true freshman to start game 1. Was just wondering how many had started at all.

Cody Green is the other true frosh QB to start.  He started against Baylor and Oklahoma in 2009.

Hope your head is ok this morning Blitz.  I'm guessing the other 2/3 are doing fine.

I was thinking the same thing.  I thought it was going to be Gebbia so my head exploded this morning thinking about how dynamic the offense could be with Martinez.  I think everyone thought Martinez has "it" and would eventually become starter.  If the staff feels he is as good as Gebbia's passing and decision making then wow we could really have a Milton like offense by mid--season.  Martinez size also makes me less concerned about injury.

I've thought, really since Martinez got here, if he was 90% as good as Gebbia at throwing and decision-making, he might still have the advantage due to running ability and size. Because I assumed he was a much better runner than Gebbia. I would take 60% completion vs 65% completion if the former is a legit running threat and the latter is serviceable.

This is a good thread discussing this very thing.
