Possible Sanctions

An attorney specializing in NCAA rules says the University of Colorado could face serious sanctions -- if private donations for a summer football camp were wrongfully used for recruiting.

CU officials notified the NCAA last week of what they called technical violations involving a booster group called the Dear Old CU Fund.

Kansas City attorney Michael Glazier says N-C-A-A rules prohibit using booster money for recruiting or to pay for prospects to attend summer camps. He says a major violation could result if the money was used and any of those prospects signed with the school.

CU already was found to have broken NCAA rules in 2002.

Another major violation within five years could result in harsher penalties.
