Texas A&M has announced changes to its autograph policy for its Aug. 24 “Meet the Aggies” fan day event.

Aggies fans will be given an autograph card for players and coaches to sign, but other memorabilia such as helmets will not be allowed. The restrictions follow reports of Aggies quarterback Johnny Manziel allegedly accepting cash for autograph sessions that would violate NCAA regulations and a preponderance of alleged Manziel autographs available online.

A&M is not the only school to alter its fan day autograph policies this week. Schools such as Kansas have announced stricter autograph access. Louisville went so far as to prohibit any signings at its fan day. Florida has regulated signings since the 1990s.

Who is trying to get autographs from Kansas players?

Guess they want the prices of the Johnny signs elsewhere to increase.

But we want the fans to come out and support our team by spending tons of money for over priced tickets and food....and we'll give you nothing in return for the "fan experience".

Stupid. NCAA and schools are ruining the sports.

A&M should pass out the 50,000 Manziel signed autographs every where in Texas.
