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

Videos by OutKick

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.
