Verduzco on radio: Martinez perhaps took things 'a little too lightly' last August, coach says

Nebraska quarterbacks coach Mario Verduzco takes issue with the suggestion Adrian Martinez wasn't prepared to play well last season.

Martinez, though, perhaps didn't have quite the same zip during preseason camp last August that he did the previous August, Verduzco said Thursday during the "Husker Sports Nightly" radio program.

In August of 2018, Martinez had to win the job in camp. That wasn't as much the case last summer because Martinez was so impressive as a true freshman in 2018.

"I think he did probably take things a little too lightly (last August), maybe sometimes, as it related to practice when we started fall camp," Verduzco said.
