“It was not prearranged like, ‘Hey, can you come here and sign some autographs for me and I’ll give you money?’ No, this was outside of the University of Texas campus. This was not on campus.
“The city of Austin is full of Texas alumni. Guys I would see around, at a restaurant or whatever it would be, this just happened to be, yes, a Texas alumni at a restaurant, had a few jerseys. ‘Hey Chris, can you come over and sign a few jerseys for me?’ I had met him and his son before.
“And of course, yeah, I signed the jerseys — not even worried about being paid — and then I got a $100 handshake, and I thought it was really cool.
“But to imply that Texas had anything to do with this, that’s so crazy.”
He then goes on to reassure everyone that this was nothing like Todd Gurley’s situation. I, uh… wait a minute… you’ll have to excuse me until I finish laughing uncontrollably.
I await the clarification to the clarification.
