    Fanatics: DONATE TODAY!

    Dear Fellow Fanatics:

    This has been cleared by Chris Williams as well as by the ISU athletic compliance department.

    My company is a sponsor of Cyclone athletics. This afternoon at 3pm, Jamie Pollard and the ISU coaches will be visiting my office on their way to the Cedar Rapids Tailgate Tour event.

    An idea popped into my head: What if I posted a message on Cyclone Fanatic and asked my fellow Cyclone fans to send me $5 via PayPal, which I would then present to Jamie as a lump-sum check at the afternoon event? I ran the idea by Chris and he was in favor so long as the ISU compliance office was OK with it. I have received their approval and provided this to Chris.

    So, if you have a PayPal account and want to participate, please send $5 (or any other amount you wish -- no amount too small) to me at:

    duff735@gmail.com

    I will provide a complete accounting to those who donate and proof that all funds were donated to the ISU athletic department. Because of the grass roots nature of this, I can't provide receipts for tax purposes but I will also NOT try to take a deduction for myself for the whole amount!

    I'm going to cut it off at 2:30 so I can have everything ready for the 3pm event. I have no idea where this might go, but I think $1000 is a good goal.

    Thank you, Cyclone Nation!

    If there are any concerns, this has been confirmed to be legitimate.

    Hmmmm...2 Vikings fans asking for money. Surely this isn't going to help pay for a new stadium...

    Re: Fanatics: DONATE TODAY!

    Yeah guys. This is a legitimate thread. This fanatic came to me with the idea last night. I told him he could do what he wanted as long as he checked with compliance at Iowa State to make sure it was legal. If you want to help out his cause, awesome. If not, please don't mock him for trying to do a good deed.

    Is the check being presented as a Cyclone Fanatic donation to Cyclone Athletics?

    No. Chris and I agreed we should leave CF out of it. It is simply being presented to Jamie as a small gift from a few friends.

    I'm not dissing the idea. I like it but let me get this straight. You want us to donate so you can get the credit for it?

    I'm doing it because I love the Cyclones and it was just an idea that popped into my head. If you'd rather, I'll buy a money order instead of giving him a check so NOBODY's name is on it.
