Well, again you get your...lol..."facts" wrong.

Calhoun learned of Martinez through friend and former Husker cornerback Ralph Brown

Well, Ganz was probably mobile enough to run this new offense, but he was too slow to be nearly as effective at the option...he was a better passer though. The other two QB's, would not fit this offense at all.

Martinez already had a situation for calling his dad (someone not associated with the program) during a game. I highly doubt that he would go to an actual coach to seek help about something without the consent from his OC or HC in some way. Or maybe he was recommended. What connection does Raulph have with Martinez to the point that he would shop him to a position coach to get help. Would he do that without communication with the current staff? Is there any "facts" that proves that none of this happens or are you still pretty much throwing out your opinions in the form of what you consider to be facts.

We’re not going to be a dropback passing team, or pro-style, like we were at Oregon St. because of our skill set here. You don’t coach plays, you coach players. - NU HC Mike Riley
