Pretend You’re Auburn: You Have $1 Million To Spend on a Team

Okay, this is pretty cool.

The guys over at Daily Joust have set up an Outkick the Coverage tournament featuring this week’s top ten college football games. I picked the ten games, it’s all the SEC games plus the biggest national games of the weekend — Notre Dame at Stanford, West Virginia at Texas Tech, and Texas vs. Oklahoma.

The challenge is pretty simple, how good of a team can you build with $1 million to spend on talent?

Every player is assigned a value and you have to decide how to allocate your resources.

Basically, pretend you’re Auburn before the Cam Newton investigation.

So here’s my team:

QB Tyler Wilson Ark v. Kty Sat 7:00pm ET $150,000
RB LaDarius Perkins MissSt v. Tenn Sat 9:00pm ET $174,000
RB Mike Gillislee Fla @ Vandy Sat 6:00pm ET $161,000
WR Jordan Matthews Vandy v. Fla Sat 6:00pm ET $100,000
WR Justin Hunter Tenn @ MissSt Sat 9:00pm ET $115,000
WR Kevin Norwood Ala @ Mizzou Sat 3:30pm ET $75,000
TE Jordan Reed Fla @ Vandy Sat 6:00pm ET $62,000
TK Florida Gators Fla @ Vandy Sat 6:00pm ET $78,000
DEF Mississippi Rebels Miss v. Auburn Sat 12:21pm ET $83,000

I had $2,000 left over.

I’ll donate this to Jonna Chizik’s campaign to fight the devil.

So, try it out, can your team beat mine?

This is actually a lot of fun.

Plus, it’s free.
