In a move that will surely have its critics, the University of Louisville Football team have decided to ban giving autographs. Again in this world people are taking advantage of a nice gesture & abusing it. The program put out this statement:
The football program no longer will be accepting autograph requests due to growing concerns over eligibility of its student-athletes.

This is something the program had to do to protect the eligibility of its players. The NCAA has punished players before due to people abusing the kindness of the players. Johnny Manziel cones to mind. No word on if the end of the year toys for autograph sessions will be cancelled.
