CHICAGO — The topic is Taylor Martinez. Two experts I found in downtown Chicago tried to put the Nebraska quarterback in perspective. “I can't remember the last true four-year starter at quarterback at Nebraska,” Eric Crouch said. “Has there ever been one?”
“Steve Taylor came in during the middle of his freshman year,” Matt Davison said. “Turner Gill played as a sophomore. Tommie Frazier didn't start until after a few games his freshman year. I think Taylor might be the first.”
