A ranking of B1G QBs has Adrian Martinez as 6th best in the conference—where does he rank in terms of highest ceilings, though?

-Athlon Sports ranked the B1G QBs, and had Martinez behind these QBs: Michael Penix, Jr., CJ Stroud, Tanner Morgan, Graham Mertz, and Taulia Tagovailoa—and ahead of Sean Clifford

-Maybe he belongs there, maybe he doesn’t—but Jake and Sip wonder where Adrian ranks in terms of highest ceilings in the conference

-Is it fair to put CJ Stroud at 2nd best in the conference without playing a game yet?

ESPN.com did a write-up about the biggest underachievers of college football the past 20 years…how would you assess Nebraska?

-Georgia was tops on the list for underachieving, and understandably so—they have lots of things going for them and not enough accolades to show for it

-Think back to 20 years ago…Nebraska was playing for a national championship, and lost. No conference titles since 1999. But everyone would say that Nebraska overachieved for a long time. Was the last 20 years underachieving or something that was bound to happen?

How could the outcome of the apparent QB Battle be affected by the opening game at Ohio State?

-What will the offense look like against Ohio State?

-Should we expect it to look different the rest of the season?Can’t force the system if you don’t have the players for it…Kade Warner leading walk on revolution at WR…uh oh

-I couldn’t be more happy to see a quarterback battle. It shows Frost is holding Martinez accountable but opening up at the Horseshoe is probably not a great time/place to make the switch
