Southern Football Predictions

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

1. LSU – Best in the South…

2. Auburn – Playing well – too bad they didn't beat LSU in overtime…

3. Georgia – Can beat LSU – will they?

4. Miami – Sitting out the ACC Title Game…

5. Virginia Tech – Should win ACC in a blowout…

6. Alabama – Seems Cotton Bowl bound – unless Georgia wins…

7. Florida – Thumping of Florida State gets them nothing – Shreveport still likley…

8. Clemson – Peach Bowl could grab the Tigers, but they've been there a lot it seems. Car Bowl more likley…

9. Georgia Tech – Loss to Georgia sends Jackets free falling as far as Nashville or Boise for Bowl game – bring a sweater!

10. Florida State – Yuck…

11. South Carolina – Any bowl would love the Cocks, but a Georgia win likely sends Carolina to the Peach…

12. Arkansas – Difficult loss to LSU – team to watch in ‘06…

13. Virginia – Loss to Miami means sub-par bowl…

14 North Carolina State – Win over Maryland means they go bowling…

15. Wake Forest – Season over

16. Vandy – Culter could be SEC Player of the Year…

17. Maryland – Is this program legit?

18. North Carolina – Needs a win for a bowl…

19. Mississippi State – Blow out of Rebels means they avoid the SEC cellar…

20. Tennessee – At least there was no spitting and throwing this weekend…

21. Kentucky – Pathetic program…

22. Ole Miss – Worst team in the SEC (Kentucky is not far behind)…

23. Duke – Worst in the South
