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

1. Auburn – Best in the South – Carolina has no shot…
2. Florida – Didn’t play well against Kentucky, but still the second best in the SEC…
3. Georgia – Almost let one slip away last weekend. Dawgs’ offense one of the worst in Mark Richt Era…
4. LSU – Behind Georgia only because of their loss to Auburn…
5. Clemson – Unquestionably the best team in the ACC…
6. Tennessee – Another sloppy SEC East performance, but the Vols won…
7. Virginia Tech – Turkeys struggled against Cincinnati
8. Arkansas – Thank God for field goal kickers…
9. Georgia TechCalvin Johnson is underused – end of story…
10. Florida State – Are these guys any good – no…
11. Alabama – Damned field goal kickers…
12. Miami – Blah…
13. Maryland – Just not that great…
14 Kentucky – Looked legit for one half against Florida…
15. Vanderbilt – Perhaps Vandy can string two wins together this week…
16. Wake ForestOle Miss stood no chance – and look Wake is undefeated…
17. South Carolina – Now Sidney Rice can score five touchdowns against Auburn, or not…
18. North Carolina – Ouch! I think Clemson just scored another touchdown…
19. Ole Miss – These guys are NOT good…
20. Mississippi State – Finally a win…
21. Virginia – Are people going to pay to watch these guys?
22. NC State – I’m still not impressed…
23. Duke – With State’s win, now Duke is the worst team in the South…
