I think it's good and the right thing to do to honor Solich.
I also think Solich wasn't the right guy and things were going downhill . . . the problem was having the wrong ADs and hiring the wrong coaches afterwards. Maybe we have the right ones now? Time will tell.

You'll always have folks say 'He was handed the keys to a Ferrari and screwed it up' without looking at the overall picture of college football and how that was changing and would have effected even the great TO.
Solich deserves to be welcomed back and treated with respect, IMO.
We can say that, do that, and still agree that we were trending down under his watch and that he'd have been gone at some point. I still say we'd have avoided Callahan, Riley or Frost type of 'Down' under Frank, but would have likely seen our peak with him in 2001.
