Johnathan Franklin - RB UCLA
Had someone come up to me while I was wearing my dress blues and give me an autograph picture of Kenjon Barner, I tried to polity say no, as this person was decked out in Duck gear, but they insisted that I take it.
Landry Jones told me Gigem when I mentioned I was an A&M Fan
Marquis Goodwin smacked his lips and seemed upset about signing anything for me
Alex Okafor seemed cool as hell, and wrote Hookem on my ball as well as signing a card for me
Johnathan Franklin asked me several questions about the navy, and I believe he was the one who mentioned he was able to have a luncheon on the USS something or another, and he thought it was a great experience.
They broke up the autograph signing into groups.
SEC West / Auburn
Big10 and Notre Dame
Pac 12 and Big East
SEC East and another
Big 12 was with FCS and D2
Alabama had an entire line just for the two players signing autographs
Overall it was a neat experience that is especially fun for the younger crowd. Bit disappointed that neither swope or Porter were signing autographs.
Other players in attendance that I couldnt get autographs from were Mike GIllesee Florida RB, Tyler Wilson Arkansas, Russel Sheppard LSU, EJ Manual Florida State, and a few others.
Just curiously, why do you get autographs? Do you sell them? Are they for your kids?
It was just a fun thing to do. I graduated from my respective "A" school and we live about 40 miles from the convention center. Bought a football on the way down and had a few players sign it. Have tickets to the actual game tomorrow, but figured this would be something inexpensive to do as well.. Went with another sailor who is a big OU fan and took his picture with Landry Jones and Denard Robinson.
No I do not sell these. They are for me to collect and have a bit of fun with to see which players become big hits in the NFL. The entire set up was for the fans to come and get autographs from players from all over the country. Im 25, and I do not have any kids.
I'm 26 and still love autographs
I had Earl Campbell sign my A&M vs tu ticket at the last game we played. I tried getting Crow to sign mine as well, but he already had his fill after about 10 people it seemed. Missed an opportunity to get Vons at the last Oklahoma St game. Aside from that those are all I really have.. My dad owned Reggie Mcneals aunts rent house.. Kept trying to get him to get me Reggies back in the day right after the 2002 game, but he wouldnt come through on that lol.
Classmate in high school was the cousin of Terrance Murphey. Claimed he was headed to college station one day for a game and he would come back with an autographed ball, he came back with one alright, but for another one of my classmates.

Porter wasn't there. He left because he hurt his ankle. I think he's back In Tx
Good Bull Navy. That ball will be a great keepsake for you in years to come. Btw those guys voted on who they thought the 2013 MNC champ would be, A&M all the way by majority vote.
