    told them I would give a thousand bucks for each PAC 12 win this season. The guy laughed and said he probably would not be calling me back this year.

    Would've been easy for me. "Money? You want money? I ain't got no money."

    Was it the university/foundation or the AD that was being solicited?

    We always scream "the AD is self-sufficient" so if it was the university, I don't understand why we would hold our ineptitude in football against the rest of the school.

    Tough gig. Be nice to the CU fundraising telemarketers. That's gotta be a hell of a job.

    I assume all telemarketers are csu grads, so it's ok.

    Actually, if they are from the alumni association they are sometimes those still working towards a degree.

    Don't be too hard on those guys, I never answer the phone when I see the Foundation on caller ID.

    I just asked what are the return rates? and wished them luck when I got a chuckle.

    Would you care to post a receipt of your $1,000 donation? Or are you going to wait for the end of the year to tally it all up?
