New, comments

We interviewed Taylor "T-Magic" Martinez and it was special. Oh so special.

Taylor Martinez.

It's been awhile since we've had a player cause such enormous debates. To many he represented Bo Pelini's tenure, whether they were Bo-Lievers or Bo-Leavers, he was Bo's quarterback. T-Magic was Nebraska's leader for almost half of a decade, and he has the records to prove it. He also has the injuries to prove it. Taylor Martinez was a lot of different things to a lot of different fans, and one of those things was a college kid who was tough as nails.

People have been hard on him, including myself at times, but as Pat likes to point out, he led an offense to put up 31 points in a conference championship game and still lost by 39 and somehow got blamed for it. That's not easy to take I'm sure. Nebraska fans want a lot and when we don't get it, some of us lash out. Taylor often times got the brunt of that whip.

All in all, I was a big fan of Taylor's, and it was a pleasure to chat with him for nearly an hour. He was way more down to earth than I expected from a D1, major conference, quarterback. We talked about his relationship with Bo, his thoughts on Riley, what it's like to date pro volleyball players, how his apps are coming, what it's like to work for Berkshire Hathaway. We also asked him to put some rumors to rest. He told us exactly how and when he got injured, and he also explained to us what happened at the infamous Texas A&M game. His answers might surprise you. T-Magic also told us how he feels about Husker Nation now that he's gone. Will he be wearing Red or Green when he's watching his brother playing us at Michigan State? You'll have to listen to find out.

I've always wanted to know what he was thinking and I finally got to find out. I honestly couldn't be more excited to share this interview with you. So please listen to it. We had one hell of a convo.
