    Chizik

    At Jack Trice there is a mural of some of Iowa State's more highly regarded coaches. Are they going to take Chizik off of this mural? I really don't want to honor a coach who went 5-19.

    It's the 7th picture on the right side.

    I would rather they just start saying we didn't have a football program in '07 and '08. We all gathered in Jack Trice to watch dog fighting during those Saturdays.


    Enjoy.

    The way I read it, they are not honoring him, they are just listing him as a coach. I agree that I wish he wasn't there, or not devote that much space to him - He is dead to me - but if you are going to have a panel that says "Iowa State Coaches" he does qualify

    Can we all agree to not bring this guy's name up anymore?

    They could just paste Rhoads over him...they don't have a photo of Jim Walden there.

    Re: Chizik

    Amen, this mural does not appear to be a "list of coaches" and either way Chizik is give a place of importance that, I think we can all agree, does not deserve.

    They should replace him with Rhoads because he is far more relevant to the program now than Chizik proved to be.

    The mural will be a point of contention, I would think. It really needs to go.

    Re: Chizik

    I propose they turn it into a fundraiser....pay $50 to deface the mural of Gene Chizik in any way you see fitting.

    There's a similar version of that in the FB office. It's already been revised to reflect the "changes". It's fair to assume that the version in the suites has been, too.

    I think if done tastefully and in the most tactful manner possible, the right picture could be selected to properly honor Gene's legacy at ISU.

    Just because it just has FB coaches doesn't mean we can't honor Jamie. Why don't they paste a picture of Jamie over the top. We have to recognize Jamie for all of his hard work.

    It's the 7th picture on the right side.

    I don't know if he actually did coach, he sure didn't appear to be able to do much in most games last season...I guess if it was for "head of organized activity resembling football" I could understand leaving him there...or at least moving it to the men's restroom...
