Southern Football Predictions
Miami Cheerleader
Posted Oct 27, 2005

Dean Legge makes his weekly picks for the 23 schools in the South.

1. Virginia Tech – Still the best in the South

2. Georgia – Hard to know what will happen without Shockley – In control of the SEC

3. Alabama – Bama’s defense is good – Bama’s offense is bad; winners nonetheless

4. Miami – Second best team in the ACC

5. LSU – Seems to find ways to hold on to wins (expect Tennessee)

6. Florida State – Needs steady play for the stretch run

7. Florida – Gators are about even with a Shockley-less Georgia; Can Florida’s offense produce?

8. Auburn – No longer under the radar; no longer undefeated in the SEC

9. Tennessee – Might be time to hit the panic button

10. Clemson – Bowl-determining game against Yellow Jackets – which Clemson will show up?

11. Georgia Tech – Time to step up the execution

12. Arkansas – Will win all of their last games expect LSU

13. Maryland – We must protect… not protecting their bowl situation, or being drilled in the second half

14 Wake Forest – Good win over mid-conference talent of NC State

15. Ole Miss – You beat Kentucky – who cares?

16. North Carolina – Win over Virginia means: Basketball is less than a month away!

17. North Carolina State – No comment

18. South Carolina – Still struggling for a bowl berth – but will need a big win

19. Virginia – Still exposed; overrated, etc… (told you so)

20. Vandy – Lost a winnable game – wish I could write something new about Vandy…

21. Kentucky – Could be the worst team in the SEC

22. Mississippi State – Probably is the worst team in the SEC

23. Duke – Very bad program – worst in the South
