    4,788 - Just made about 90% of my total donation in the last month when they fired Embree (Felt it was right after my Emails to Bohn). It's frightening that 1 donation jumped me close to 5,000 spots.

    '08 alum so I'm just getting started

    If you are a Buff Club member, they just sent out yearly statements (and requests for renewals). Included in the packet is a "Priority Points Statement" that has your priority ranking in the upper right-hand corner.

    So, with these points, is there a catalog with **** you can buy with them? You know, like for 200 points you can get a solar powered flashlight or something. For 100,000 points you can buy an airline ticket. Do they have that?

    Another good reason why the priority point system kinda blows.....doesn't matter if you have 6 season tickets or 1 season ticket to your account, you will only get the same 5 points for being a season ticket holder in consecutive years.

    While the priority point system is a cool idea on the surface, it doesn't exactly reward those that support all the teams through attendance & ticket purchases

    You will move back down next year. Donations don't really carry forward all that well.

    The points accumulate forever. The reason you could move back, is others don't remain static in their points.

    Buff Club membership prior to 2011 - three points per consecutive year
    Buff Club membership - five points per consecutive year as a Buff Club Member
    Season Ticket Purchase in your name per sport - five points per consecutive year
    Athletic Excellence Donation - five points per $100
    Priority Seating and Parking - one point per $100
    Lifetime Prior to 2011 giving - one point per $100
    Alumni C-Club Membership - three points per consecutive year of fee paying membership

    Continuity in season ticket ownership and donations to Athletic Excellence in support of excellence funds, endowments, capital projects and specific sports gives the most bang for the buck.

    Buff Club Membership and season ticket points are cumulative. If you skip a year, they reset to zero.

    Longtime sec 108 seats close to Ralphie's jaunt. Great but cheaper... 2582/9277 Should probably be higher but I have not made a major capital contribution to date. I am ready to do so with a solid plan of action. Used this thread as my motivation to pick up the phone... Slightly OT: I have little or no buyers remorse per this coaching decision. Coach is a tailor made guy for our rather complicated set of circumstances. He is a worker and a builder, and a very successful guy! I am rejuvenated by his arrival!

    As pointed out by Skiddy you get points for any sport that has season tickets it does reward those who hold season tickets to multiple sports. I think there are 30 or so annual points you can accrue for holding all of the possible season tickets.

    You are right though, you get the same # of continuity points for 1 or 10 season tickets. Along the same lines though you get the same number of continuity points for cheap seats or nice ones.

    Yep...that's the kicker...if your goal is to be real high on the priority point list you should just give money to the Excellence Fund and wait for your day in the Sun at the 50 yard line to receive your game ball from Bohn.

    Otherwise purchasing 2 or more season tickets to support the FB or BB teams, parking passes, required ticket donations, attending away games, etc. will add up to a much greater expense with far less of a point return (let alone a sporting event return given what we've seen on the FB field of the past hand full of seasons)

    I'm in the top 10% (798/9277), up from the 900's last year (I've been a season ticket holder for ... well, a long time).

    Thing is ... I'd much rather not move up the list so quickly. It means that there are many fans - good, dedicated fans - who are dropping off or reducing contributions.
    Someday, I'd like to see the list as static as a waiting list for Bronco or Cornhusker season tickets - almost a point of pride that you don't move up.

    Looks like it is not hard to get into the top 1000. I am well above that and I do not donate heavy dollars.

    I dont think it is an all encompassing system, for the general population like us it works well, but things like Marsico's 1.5 million dollar donation years ago wouldnt be figured in.

    Season tickets are available in 5 sports. Football, men's and women's basketball, women's volleyball, and women's soccer.

    A first time buyer of all five gets 25 points. If you continue that for 5 years, that would earn you 375 points. The compounding is impressive. Someone with 375 points right now would be in some elite company.

    Year cumulative Edited
    1: 25. 25. 25.
    2: 50. 75. 50.
    3: 75. 150. 75
    4: 100. 250. 100
    5: 125. 375. 125.

    That plan excludes buff club membership and priority seating.

    Edit: I withdraw my understanding that the points are compounding. They are cumulative, but not compounding.

    I'm convinced they monkey with the numbers and give more points towards those who donate $ vs. buying tickets. My dad had 4 tickets in Sec 107 for almost 40 consecutive years, yet when we would get seated in the 5th level for games at Invesco (vs. our 30 yard line seats in Folsom), we were told it was because he didn't have enough points to be on the lower level. It definitely did not add up.

    I am not sure that is the case on paper I have more than enough points to be down there, and like your dad have nice seats in folsom, but I too get stuck in the nose bleeds too. For some reason i think that you have to pay to upgrade to get down there.
