Just have a couple of questions concerning meeting players and coaches. While my wife and I have been to multiple games over the years, we have never had the chance to attend the Orange & White game. This one should be special as we now have children and this will be their first experience in Neyland!
1) What are some good suggestions of things to bring for autographs?
2) What time should we arrive to be able to at least meet our favorite players and coaches?
Thanks in advance for the replies, GBO!!

Folks usually bring footballs, autograph books, hats and other items to sign.
As far as time to arrive, prepare to wait.
The signing will be held on the field at Neyland Stadium from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. The waiting line for the fans will begin forming at 7 a.m., at Gate 7 and the gate will open at 11 a.m.
The line will likely be stretched down the street past Thompson-Boling Arena if it is similar to previous years. Once on the field, prioritize which autographs you would like to get because odds are you won't be able to get as many as you would like.
Your team. All the time.
Thanks for the information Kevin!
I always bring helmets and mini helmets. And yes you better get in line at 8am if you want to get good autographs or if your kids are young enough, you could just let them ask someone in line to cut. I mean who can tell a 5,6 or 7 year old no to get an autograph. I got about 80 autographs that way over the last 3 years but now my kids aren't the "cute little kids" they are 10 &11 now and people think its rude now, but it worked well for us.

Lol, good tips. Where do you buy your helmets from --- great idea
Was just about to start another thread but I will post my question in here.
I keep hearing about free parking. I have only parked off the Strip at some of the private lots. Where is this free parking?
Think all UT lots will be free. Across from stadium, down on Neyland Drive, garages, etc., is my understanding.
