Reilly: Change the Rules
The Johnny Manziel saga shows that the antiquated NCAA rules on memorabilia and autographs need to change, writes Rick Reilly. Story
Instead, the only autographs allowed will be on specially provided autograph cards, "in order to accommodate as many fans as possible." All other items must be left at the door.
"No other items -- for example, helmets, footballs, jerseys and photos -- will be allowed in the Gilliam Indoor Track Complex," the statement said.
The new policy comes in light of an NCAA investigation into whether Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel was paid to sign memorabilia.
Texas A&M also said players and coaches would remain seated at the event and would not pose for photos.
