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

1. Miami – Best in the South – no question…

2. LSU – Losing the SEC West would be a monumental collapse…

3. Auburn – Looks like the second best team in the SEC. Too bad they play in the West…

4. Georgia – Time to win a game…

5. Alabama – Tide had better get it together before Auburn game…

6. Virginia Tech – Season is a disappointment because of one game…

7. South Carolina – Gamecocks are better than Tigers, but will they prove it?

8. Clemson – Which Tiger team will show up in Columbia?

9. Florida – Told you winning in Columbia wasn't easy. This program is very average…

10. Florida State – Pathetic…

11. Virginia – Solid win over Tech, but won't beat Virginia Tech this week…

12. Arkansas – Another win possible this week…

13. Georgia Tech – Typical late-season slide – now probation!

14 Tennessee – Not a good team, and the program looks drained…

15. Maryland – Good win over North Carolina last weekend…

16. Wake Forest – Yawn…

17. Ole Miss – Don't have the guns to stop LSU

18. North Carolina State – Not that great of a program

19. North Carolina – Should kill Duke

20. Kentucky – Can they pull the upset in Athens?

21. Vandy – The toilet has flushed

22. Mississippi State – Worst team in the SEC…

23. Duke – Worst in the South
