Don't bring football or helmets to UF's football fan day

GAINESVILLE -- Autograph seekers, beware. If you plan on attending the Florida Gators' football fan day on August 16, then don't expect quarterback Tim Tebow and the guys signing any helmets or footballs.

The UAA announced on Wednesday that football players and coaches will only sign Florida football posters. Why? The UAA says it doesn't want to violate any NCAA rules.

"Unfortunately, when players have signed various autograph items such as helmets and footballs, they have on occasion been sold to the general public," said Jamie McCloskey, the UAA's compliance czar. "The practice could put the eligibility of some of our student-athletes into question. We want to be proactive in this area and are asking our fans to cooperate with our policy of requesting an autograph on our team poster only. The poster should be for personal use only and not intended for sale."

Sounds pretty lame, right? Football players not signing footballs? So much for getting an early jump on your Christmas list.

The UAA's real reason for this new autograph policy? I'll let you guys speculate on that. As for the details of autograph day ...

What: Florida football fan day
When: August 16, 1-3 p.m.
Where: O'Connell Center
Who: Football players and coaches

Great, next thing you know they'll tell me I can't take hookers and blow to football fan day either.

the UAA should outlaw felons instead of banning helmet signings...shame on UF

Wow, the commenting section of this blog has gone to bell. How ridiculous.

Make that "gone to hell."

Even though Jo gives out good info, I think there are about 5 real Gators here that actually post. Its sad because this is a good site.

Sorry about the hookers and blow comments Jo, didn't realize Adam and Ko would experience the wadding of their panties with that comment.

Yes, a potential NCAA violation, as opposed to the UAA selling the autographed footballs and jerseys in the stadium shop.

UAA should at least endeavor to mask their greed by, for instance, limiting each person (adult or child) to one signable item each.

And 2 of those "Gator" fans on here spend all day on the different UM blogs.

I would bet that 13 and 1 big loss posts 20 times on our blogs for every single post on Gator Clause.

SOLDY ! Welcome back stateside. Practice is just around the corner.

Actually just finishing up my last leg in on the sandy beaches of Bermuda through the weekend...

It is funny how these cane fools are trying their best to to paint all the pretty by the numbers pictures knowing what's in store for them and their precious once upon a time 20th. Century Football program. The fallout, come mid-Sept. will be epic as even in denial Canefan will even realize where they are at .

Just a matter of time Arty, just a matter of time ...

This pretty much sums up how bad FU really is

The speech the school was dumb enough to plaster up that was made by Stewie, came after a LOSS!!!!!!!!Thats right I said a LOSS!!!!!

It goes to show you how truly pathetic that school is

Spin this like you do every other post

Wake the hell up boy

I said answer up boy!!

Stop with all the bumblings of a lost and beaten clown

Explain why in the heck you build a shrine to something that was made from a loss

Do as told

Dont stutter and talk to your imaginary friends be grateful I allow you to post here. If and when I decide to ban you, you will have 0 Miami blogs left

Got Undefeated?

THE BOWDENS DO!

Actually I'm not a Cane Hater. I root for the Canes sans UF. Are you guys going to beat FSU? What do you think about FSU v USF?

You guys would have to admit you would love to been the odds on favorite to win 3 MNCs in 4 years. Common...if you are not a Gator right now you are definitely Gatorbait.

At BANDWAGON DAY listen close , Tebow has a lisp . And , why do you call it a jump pass when Tebow does it ?

Posted by: ko classic | July 15, 2009 at 10:51 PM

I think we will beat FSU, and I think FSU will beat USF. I also think we will beat USF.

I too support all the Florida schools when it does not affect UM.

Actually, it was "dan" 's comment I found ridiculous, not the one about hookers & blow - I thought that was really funny.

Sorry sidcane but if that is the best you've got... What do you think the Canes chances would be if you had a strong jump passing QB who may or may not lisp? Lot better than your current chances.

And now it's a STRONG jump pass?

actually it was adam's comment which I felt is ridiculous

got five?
