2019 Aggie Football Win-A-Thon ($1,575 raised)

Post by treesap32 » August 27th, 2019, 2:13 pm

Aggie fans,

For the last few 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 San Diego State, LSU, BYU, Boise State, and any game after 11/30.

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

I can pledge $10/win, too. I may throw in bonuses, but this is what I'm committing to now.

Just in college, so I'm gonna be cheap at 5$ a win, but I'll double that for wins against LSU, BYU-P, BSU, MWCCG, and the bowl game.

Excited to be a part of it this year!

I will do 10 dollars a win. Double it ($20) for wins over WF, yBu, BSU, SDSU, Fresno and the bowl win outside of the NY6 I will drop a whole hundred bucks if we beat LSU, winning the mountain West championship, and making a NY6 bowl. I will pledge $200 if we win the NY6. And if by some crazy miracle We win the national championship. I will donate my $2 bet payout of $1,000 on USU winning the national championship.

Obviously. Wouldn’t be a tattoo of Gary Andersen getting a tattoo if it was the new logo.

Count me in for the following:

* $50 for a bowl game win or a CCG win
* $50 for wins against a P5 team
* $35 for wins against Boise or BYU-Provo (despite their claims, they're not equivalent to a P5 win)
* $20 for every other win

Up to $160 per win! Everyone please check the initial thread to make sure I'm representing your pledges correctly. I'm standardizing the way they are presented for clarity and ease of maintaining the Win-ometer throughout the season..

Re: 2019 Aggie Football Win-A-Thon ($220 per win pledged)

We're up to $1,125 pledged for the 5 wins on our schedule. Anyone else want to join in? No amount is too small to contribute!
