    Signed Helmet - what to do?

    So I was doing a little cleaning this morning, and came across my beloved game-worn ISU helmet. In my dismay, I saw the 'Gene Chizik' signature and realized that I would not be able to see the helmet the same way anymore. What should I do? I got it in a Athletic Department auction - do you think they would refund the $$ that I paid? Should I wipe the sig off? Do you think Pollard would replace with a signed helmet of whoever the new coach is when he is hired? Honestly, this may seem humorous, but I am actually quite dismayed about it.

    Anyone else out there with worthless Chizik merchandise??

    Keep it. Maybe it will be worth something someday if Chizik turns out to be a successful coach.

    Contact Pollard about it.... Wait though.

    No offense but finding a new coach, and damage control trying to keep new players here take precidence.

    JP is a good guy, and at the very least he'd contact you back.

    It's just a crazy time now..

    Just remember, even though it may contain an autograph you don't want, it still is an ISU helmet.

    the ink is fairly removable. I'd get the name off and then you still have a nice helmet...have a player sign it. They earned that Iowa State logo, chizik didn't. It will never be worth anything great even if he succeeds big time, which he won't. I plan to find anything with chizik on it and get rid of it and try to forget this disasterous footnote in ISU history.

    That would be funny, although I don't know if anyone would want to admit to having a life-size cutout of Chizik.

    if you go camping you could drop a cleveland steamer in it??? but it still is an ISU helmet so i don't think that'd be right... i would try rubbing the signature off with some kind of chemical.
