Martell continued his assault with a profane interview with the Buckeyes’ student newspaper after Ohio State’s win Tuesday at the Rose Bowl over Washington. A Lantern editor tweeted in part: “I feel great out there every time I do go out there with the ones. Coach Meyer throws me out there with the ones all the time. That's just my opinion on it.

Asked if he would leave the Buckeyes if another quarterback transferred, Martell was adamant: “Why would I leave for someone who hasn’t put a single second into this program yet? I’ve put two years of working my ass off for something that I’ve been waiting for and dreaming of having my whole life.”
