2021 Aggie Football Win-A-Thon ($380 Per Win Pledged)

Post by treesap32 » September 2nd, 2021, 10:42 am

Aggie fans,

For the last several years we have had success through this event in raising thousands of dollars for the Merlin Olsen Fund For Football Competitive Excellence.

For those not yet familiar with the Win-A-Thon, it started several years ago after I realized that consecutive bowl victories enticed me to want to contribute to the program's success leading me to make donations to the Merlin Olsen Fund at the end of each of those seasons. I figured it was the least I could do to help continue the winning tradition, and increase Utah State's ability to pay the salaries of their coaches and upgrade football facilities. The Aggie Football Win-A-Thon allows fans to pledge a certain amount for each victory throughout the year and rewards the coaches and team for their success on the field. Here's what it entails:

Each year Aggie fans will have the opportunity to pledge a certain dollar amount to the Merlin Olsen fund for each Aggie Victory throughout the season (including conference championship games, bowl games, or playoff games). Any dollar amount will be appreciated. No amount too small or too high. Pledges will be made publicly in this thread, and we will track the amount raised with each win on a Win-ometer at the bottom of this site. At the end of the year those who have made pledges will be reminded to donate directly to the Merlin Olsen Fund by visiting the Official USU Athletics Fundraising Website.

Here's a message about the creation and importance of this fund:



If anyone feels uncomfortable pledging publicly, feel free to contact me with your pledge and I will announce it as an anonymous pledge in this thread.

I would like to start the pledging off with $15 per Aggie victory this year, plus an additional $15 for each win over Washington State, BYU, Boise State, and any game after 11/30. Plus an additional $5 for every kick return for a touchdown scored by Savon Scarver this year.

Who's with me!? How much is each Aggie Victory worth to you?

:utah: :state:

List of pledges:

Huge win last night! Very happy to double my pledge as promised for the Washington State victory. We raised $285 for the Washington State victory. Let's keep this going. Anyone who enjoyed the win last night, let's show our appreciation by pledging to the Win-A-Thon!

seriously people. Time to jump on the BA.ndwagon. I am excited that the Aggies have the opportunity to get a bit more money out of my pledge than I thought they would.

- $35 per win

Plus an additional:
- $25 for a win against BSU, BYU, and WSU
- $250 for MWC championship
- $69.69 for a bowl game appearance (I know, I'm immature)
- $4.20 for every Savon Scarver kick return he makes it into the end zone (What did I say about my immaturity)
- $100 for a bowl game win
- $500 NY6 appearance
- $750 NY6 win
- $1,000 for a national championship

Looks like I've committed $60 for the season to date. And if we have a perfect season, I will donate $3,273.89.
