Here’s to hoping Adrian Martinez has a successful 2021 season.

NCAA Football: Nebraska at Rutgers Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

I was expecting a much closer game between Gonzaga and Baylor than what we saw last night. In my mind it was going to be something a little closer to what we saw on Saturday with Gonzaga and UCLA. Baylor was well prepared and had their foot on the gas for the whole game.

For those of us that don’t follow much college basketball, the Bears showed us that picking the undefeated team isn’t always the best way to go.

I wasn’t looking to win anything anyway though. My bracket was busted fairly early on since I decided to pick Illinois as the winner. That was silly.

Congrats to the Baylor Bears on their National Championship.

Now to change the subject and look at Nebraska football, we heard from quarterbacks coach Mario Verduzco yesterday about what Martinez needs to do to improve next season. This video highlights some of what he did well and what I hope we see more of from him in the 2021 season.
