    I mean, I could donate a buck and, technically, be a booster. What if I donate $500? I'd expect that I'd be appreciated a little. But not much. So, to have influence to the point that the AD would give a **** about what you think, what would it take? $10K? $100K +?

    What is a booster.

    CU Compliance wrote a whole chapter on it.

    ANY donation counts. In "the scandal that shall not be named" one person once purchased a $25 ticket to an event to support one athletic team and that purchase qualified the individual as a booster - forever.

    Q: What does it mean to be a "booster/donor" of CU athletics?
    [/FONT]
    [FONT=Cambria, serif] [/FONT]
    [FONT=Cambria, serif] A booster/donor is someone who is a representative of the institution's athletics interests. A booster/donor must abide by pertinent NCAA legislation. If a booster/donor does not abide by NCAA rules, student-athletes' future eligibility may be jeopardized, and any violations may result in severe punishment from the NCAA.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Cambria, serif] Q: Am I considered a representative of CU's athletics interests (a "booster/donor")?[/FONT]
    [FONT=Cambria, serif] [/FONT]
    [FONT=Cambria, serif] A booster/donor is a person who:[/FONT]

    • [FONT=Cambria, serif]Is a member of an organization that promotes CU's athletics interests, such as the Buff Club, or has ever belonged to such a club.[/FONT]
    • [FONT=Cambria, serif]Has donated to the Athletics Department or to a CU booster club.[/FONT]
    • [FONT=Cambria, serif]Has ever purchased or held season tickets for any sport.[/FONT]
    • [FONT=Cambria, serif]Has assisted or is assisting in the recruitment of a student-athlete in any way.[/FONT]
    • [FONT=Cambria, serif]Has assisted or is assisting in providing benefits to enrolled student-athletes or their families[/FONT]
    • [FONT=Cambria, serif]Is a former student-athlete.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Cambria, serif]Remember, once you are a representative of CU’s athletics interests, you forever maintain this status. [/FONT]
    [FONT=Cambria, serif] [/FONT]
    [FONT=Cambria, serif] Q: What if I don't currently have season tickets or belong to the Buff Club, but I have in the past?[/FONT]
    [FONT=Cambria, serif] [/FONT]
    [FONT=Cambria, serif] A person becomes a booster/donor once they meet one of the above conditions, and that distinction always stays with the person.[/FONT]​

    There was actually a point when I read that a few years back and wondered whether or not I qualified. Since I have so much contact with high school students and athletes - mainly through volunteer work and organizations - I just went right ahead and made a donation to CU. Figured it was better to know for sure I WAS a booster and follow the rules from that point on, than to be in a gray area and screw some kid's chances inadvertantly.

    They need a rule like golf. You know, where, if you are a pro, you can get your amature status back.

    Why, you give some money to Cam Newton we don't know about?
