CSU athletic officials say system wouldn’t allow slush fund

FORT COLLINS – Checks in the Colorado State University athletic department would prevent it from having the “slush fund” allegedly operated by the University of Colorado’s football department, CSU Athletic Director Mark Driscoll said.Word of the alleged CU slush fund was leaked from a sealed grand jury report.Driscoll said CSU has no money in cash boxes. “Everything goes in on the books, and all expenses are on the books,” Driscoll said. Even the purchase of a pizza would be accounted for in the department’s books.The NCAA allows coaches to host their own private camps like the one maintained by CU football coach Gary Barnett, but they still must be monitored by the institution, said Christine Susemihl, CSU athletics compliance director. She said CSU doesn’t allow its coaches to operate camps as a private enterprise because it makes oversight more difficult.
