Mike Schaefer (Nebraska 247 Sports): Part 3

-How much of Nebraska/Illinois will you catch tonight?

-If you were a Patriots fan, which of these 3 would you want as your QB: Garoppolo, Newton, Mariota?

Betting odds have a certain QB favored to be the Patriots starter in 2021, and it’s not Cam Newton…

-It’s former Oregon star and Titans QB Marcus Mariota! He currently is the backup QB in Las Vegas. Jimmy Garoppolo and Cam Newton are also high on the list…Which one would you want?

Do you still believe that Scott Frost and Mario Verduzco can develop elite-level QBs at Nebraska?

-Frost has a history of development with Marcus Mariota, Vernon Adams, and McKenzie Milton, all who had great years under him. Adrian Martinez had that kind of hype after his first season, before things went wrong with injuries and depleted talent levels, and possibly a loss of confidence in himself.

-Development is the word again. Can you still have an elite QB without elite WRs? If you look at Oregon, it’s not like their WRs went on to have a ton of NFL success. For UCF, they had some players go pro. Can a QB — whether it’s Martinez or someone else — still be elite under their guidance or is something off?
