I was at this event tonight. My son and I drove all the way from Charlotte and it was quite the disappointment for him. We had an autograph ball like we usually do and were told we could not have it autographed, but the players could autograph a UT poster provided. Said poster was of Butch Jones with a black background. With a black sharpie, there was little room for signatures. To top it off, Curt Maggitt and AJ Johnson were not even allowed to sign. I understand the premise, but this just ruins it for the kids. To top it off, the event was much shorter than the previous 3 years we have attended and we barely had time to even get to the players. It was disappointing to explain to my 10 year old that he could not get his ball signed or have his favorite players even sign the poster. Now I see in this article where Hart says “We’ll find ways for people to interact, but not necessarily with the players.” Not with the players??? Fans can’t even be around players anymore? Ridiculous.
