Calling All Ty Detmer Fans!

I'm currently taking an Anthropology class and it's possibly the easiest college class I have ever taken. We talk about the most random stuff and believe it or not, I'm actually learning a lot. But my teacher always tells the craziest stories. He's the most apostate teacher I have had on this campus. But he told us a funny story the other day that I have to share (even though he swore us to secrecy!) And as a side note, this is NOT the same teacher that told the crazy son/period story. (Read below if you haven't heard that one yet!)

My teacher attended BYU during the Ty Detmer era and worked at a burger place that was near the BYU football offices on campus. There were always football players and coaches coming in and getting food. Because of the location, students would constantly leave items for the players, but most especially Ty Detmer, to sign. Items like footballs, posters, etc. were always just laying around the burger spot. So, my teacher admitted to us in class, that he would pick up the items and when no one was looking, would sign his name as close to Detmer's as he could. So if anyone has a signed football from this era, check near Detmer's name for a Stephen Smith! Those balls may not be as valuable as you thought...
