Sonoran Hot Reads: Anu Solomon feels he has plenty to prove

Last year may be a blessing in disguise for Arizona's 2016 season

It was a down year for the Arizona Wildcats in 2015, some of it caused by injuries, some of it caused by recruiting deficiencies, and some of it cause by coaching deficiencies. That's led some people to wonder about the quarterback situation moving forward, and Anu Solomon knows he has plenty to prove. "Oh, heck yeah," Solomon told ESPN's Ted Miller. "We -- myself -- have lots to prove. We were, as you said, Pac-12 South champions. We were held to a high standard last year and we fell down." The piece by Miller is an interesting look at Solomon's numbers and the offense in general as they look to find improvement this spring.
