Texas A&M to restrict autograph signings at fan event

On Wednesday, Texas A&M became the latest college football program to change its autograph policy for a fan day event.

The Aggies have announced a policy change for "Meet the Aggies" fan day event scheduled for Aug. 24. And it comes following reports that Aggies star quarterback Johnny Manziel allegedly accepted cash for autograph sessions that would violate NCAA regulations if found to be true.

On Saturday, Aggies fans who show up for the even will be given an autograph card for players and coaches to sign, but other memorabilia such as helmets and jerseys will not be permitted.

Texas A&M joins the likes of Kansas, Louisville, and Florida as other schools who have tightened up their autograph policies this week in the wake of the Manziel story. Louisville even went so far as to prohibit any signings at all during its annual fan day.
