Southern Football Predictions
Miami Cheerleader
Posted Oct 26, 2006

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

1. ClemsonVirginia Tech is the only real test left this season for Tigers…

2. Tennessee – Struggled against Bama – now a not-so-easy one in Columbia…

3. Arkansas – Might be better then the Vols, and will get their chance to prove it soon…

4. Auburn – Didn’t roll over Tulane, but won…

5. Florida – Are much better than Georgia – Leak and company had better prove it or four years and no ring…

6. LSU – Tigers still a good team, but with no great win…

7. Virginia Tech – Only a win over Clemson can save their season…

8. Georgia Tech – Another classic Tech collapse…

9. Miami – Can still, and this is AMAZING, win this week and move on to the ACC Championship Game…

10. Georgia – Hey, a win is better than a loss…

11. South Carolina – A win over a 5-6 Tennessee – not bad for Carolina; a win over this year’s Tennessee (throwing your hat into the SEC race out of nowhere) – would be very impressive…

12. Wake Forest – Only loss is to Clemson – this is a decent Wake team, and very good for their program…

13. Maryland – Need to figure out how to beat Noles – everyone else has…

14 Alabama – Easy one this week – let another one slip away last week (it happens when you don’t have an offense – see Georgia)…

15. Florida State – Losers…

16. Vanderbilt – Didn’t back it up against Carolina at home…

17. Kentucky – The new Kentucky should beat State – is this the new Kentucky or the old?

18. NC State – Chuck Amato – coaching genius…

19. Ole Miss – Have no shot against Auburn…

20. Virginia – Still not a good team…

21. Mississippi State – Georgia is not what they once where, but State is…

22. Duke – Last week’s should’a win would have been the first and last over Miami since they joined the ACC…

23. North Carolina – Not only the worst in the South, but also coach-less…
