Bo: Starting QB "Game-Time Decision"


By HuskerLocker

Although Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez has practiced for the bulk of the week and is "getting better every day," head coach Bo Pelini said his pick for starting quarterback is "probably a game-time decision."

“We have three quarterbacks, we have good depth at the position,” Pelini said. “You deal with things like that (injuries) as the year goes on. Fortunately they are all getting better. Taylor is getting better, he’s progressed through the week, but we have a lot of good options there at the quarterback position.”

NU kicks off vs. Iowa State in Ames at 2:30 p.m. Saturday. Pelini has previously said that backups Zac Lee and Cody Green will be used situationally. Offensive coordinator Shawn Watson has called them "2A and 2B" Lee played vs. Texas and Missouri.

Cornerback Alfonso Dennard worked out Thursday and hasn't been ruled out for Saturday's game. He missed Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday practices.

Glad to hear that Dennard worked out Thursday. He may not be ready to go for the ISU game, but the fact that he is practicing must mean that the doctors think his head is OK. That is good news. He'll be back, he may just need a week off. But, just glad to hear that he is feeling better, is back in the swing of things, and will be able to make a comeback, sooner rather than later. Good luck Dennard. I just hope that this concussion doesn't scare him into thinking that he should declare for the NFL early in case he ends up with a rash of concussions that put him out permanently his senior year. One of Pelini's biggest recruiting jobs this winter will be keeping Dennard as a Husker for 1 more year. Go Big Red.
