Osborne: Cornhuskers Should Honor Solich

January 16, 2012

Neb Football

Frank Solich succeeded a legend at Nebraska - and failed by winning 75 percent of his games.

Tom Osborne says Frank Solich is open to the idea of being honored by Nebraska, even though the school fired him after six seasons in which he won 75 percent of his games:

“I think he needs to be recognized here,” Osborne said. “If you look at that six-year period when he was a coach here, golly, they went to two BCS bowls, played for a national championship, won the Big 12 championship, and won 75 percent of his games. That’s difficult to do.”

The question, however, is whether Solich wants to be honored. He was 9-3 in 2003, his final season in Lincoln. Since then, the Cornhuskers have gone 5-6, 8-4, 9-5, 5-7, 9-4, 10-4, 10-4 and 9-4.

Those are all worse.
