They're honoring Solich.  I went back and looked, the dude only finished lower than 2nd in the North one time, he only had one mediocre season.  They were 9-3 his last season, and the team he built beat Michigan State in the Alamo Bowl.  Only one season not in the final rankings.  Three seasons they finished in the Top 10. 

I know we whined and cried a lot, but damn, I can't imagine ever wanting to fire a coach who never missed a bowl, won a conference title, finished in the Top 25 all but one year and had .680 conference winning percentage in a conference with Bob Stoops, Mack Brown, Peak Snyder 1.0, Gary Barnett and a headed to the Pinnacle of Pinks at MethU.

In addition to moving to the big 10, them firing him was the turning point imo to their slide into mediocrity. Firing Frank Solich : Nebraska :: Hiring Charlie Weis : Kansas
