Pretend You're Auburn: You Have $1 Million To Spend on a Team
Published on: October 11, 2012 | Written by: Clay Travis
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.
