"Unfortunately when players have signed various autograph items such as helmets and footballs, they have on occasion been sold to the general public," Associate Athletics Director for Compliance Jamie McCloskey said. "This practice could put the eligibility of some of our student athletes into question. We are wanting 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."
The Gators kick off their 2005 season versus Wyoming on Sept. 3 at 6 p.m. at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
