Martinez is getting a ton of hype...most of it based on quotes from other players after practice. He did look good in the spring game. My guess is a Lee-Martinez mix, ala Florida in 06 with Leak and Tebow. The freshman might be too talented not to play some, but the coaches will temper that by giving the veteran plenty of playing time too. Lee is healthy, and showed something promising in the Holiday Bowl. At least that's what I think would be the smart move.
But, if they want to go all in with T-Magic (or even Green, I guess) it will make these first couple games against cupcakes more compelling. Everyone loves a hyped freshman. But if we are serious about a national title run, the track record for freshman QBs is thin.
