2020 Early Heisman Early Odds: Best Value Candidate No. 6
QB Adrian Martinez, Nebraska 30/1
Nebraska’s offense is going to start to work under Scott Frost? The team will start to win close games and not keep screwing up?
Adrian Martinez will be the quarterback who made every Husker quarterback fired up once he signed on?
We’ve all been waiting a long, long time for this Nebraska slot machine to start paying off.
It’s Year Three, and Martinez is supposed to be the leader and star of a high-powered Nebraska attack now that he knows what he’s doing.
This isn’t going to be a special Husker team right way, but 1) it’ll have time to build, and 2) that might not be a bad thing. A mediocre defense means the offense has to keep on pressing.
The schedule is relatively light and fluffy until Halloween. If Martinez can crank up the stats, and if Nebraska can become a thing – sort of like Minnesota was last year – the table will be set with at Ohio State, Penn State, at Iowa, at Wisconsin giving him opportunities to be special.
At 30/1, if this Nebraska thing starts to work, Martinez will have the stats.
