    Eligibility Question

    This is purely hypothetical, but if I were to take one of the women's basketball players out for supper on a date type thing, would it be an NCAA violation to pay for their meal? Keep in mind this is purely hypothetical.

    Re: Eligibility Question

    Are you kidding, go get her! Truth, I dated a female athlete on scholarship when I was there and no, nobody was hounding me about paying for dinner.

    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    I believe the main concept of the rule is that student athletes shouldn't get things the general student population can't obtain.

    You would have to be a booster or friend of the program, financially for that to be considered a infraction.

    Re: Eligibility Question

    Isn't a season ticket holder considered a booste?

    Yes, because most times the location of your tickets require some sort of scholarship contribution.

    Except if the ticket holder is a student. Student tickets do not require a contribution for seat placement. As long as the original poster is a fellow student then all is good.

    Plus dinner and a movie does not surpass any benefit that a regular student could not get. However if IcSyU plans on taking her to Lake Tahoe via his daddy's Leer jet to have a meal catered by a 5 star chef who was flown in from Paris just for this one meal, then it may be a violation.

    Ah, a trick question. If it is an ISU player, yes, the program gets the death penalty. If it is a USC player, you may buy her anything you would like.

    Re: Eligibility Question

    Per Cyclones.com:

    Who is a representative of athletics
    interests?
    A “representative of the institution’s athletics
    interests” (booster) is an individual who is known
    (or should have been known) as a Local or National
    Cyclone Club Member, anyone who donates money
    to the athletic department, anyone that has ever
    been a season ticket holder, fans, faculty and staff,
    former students, anyone assisting in the
    recruitment of a prospect, or anyone involved in
    promoting the athletics program.
    Once you have been identified as an institutional
    representative of athletics interests, you retain that
    identity FOREVER.
    ONCE A BOOSTER, ALWAYS A BOOSTER!

    Basically anyone that has ever purchased tickets to an athletic event could probably "technically" be considered a booster I think. I'm pretty sure if you ask an athlete about the whole paying for dinner thing they probably will know and if you are really concerned just email our compliance department and ask.


    Go Cubs Go!

    Back to the original question. The booster situation does not apply to dating.

    Re: Eligibility Question

    That would be sweet to play that card with your girlfriend if she was an athlete, "Sorry honey, you know I'm not allowed to pay for dinner or the movie tonight. Make sure you bring your purse."

    I would have saved probably thousands of dollars.
