At times, Martinez was dynamic on the field. His combination of arm strength and speed led to many highlight plays. During his four seasons at Nebraska, Martinez scored 80 total touchdowns.
Unfortunately, he also struggled with turnovers, as he threw 30 total interceptions.
As a starter, Martinez led the Cornhuskers to a 15-23 record, and the program did not reach a single bowl game.
On July 13, Martinez reflected on his time with the Cornhuskers during Big 12 Media Days.
“I played there for four years and felt I’d given everything I could to Nebraska,” Martinez said per Chris Hummer of 247 Sports. “There was a lot of stuff, good and bad, that happened at Nebraska that I was ready to leave behind and start completely fresh.”
Martinez said he has “nothing but love for Nebraska” per KWCH 12’s Chelsea Croft.
“I’d say the time for reflection isn’t upon us yet,” Martinez said. “I want to wait on that, and hopefully, I didn’t burn that bridge. I don’t think I did. I have a lot of love for Nebraska and always will. It’s my alma mater. I mean, shoot, I was there for four years and still have best friends and really close people there. So, in time, we’ll see what that looks like. But I have nothing but love for Nebraska.”
