Southern Football Predictions

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

1. Arkansas – Now number one – and should run every down against Carolina…

2. Auburn – Just waitin' around for Dawgs and Elephants…

3. Florida – Offense was not good looking against Georgia

4. Tennessee – Need a win to hold out hope in the East…

5. LSU – Defense can get them a win in Knoxville…

6. Clemson – Last Thursday's loss was stunning…

7. Georgia Tech – Now is not the time to do the typical Tech late-season fall apart…

8. Virginia Tech – Should beat the Canes in Miami

9. Georgia – Need to get going at some point on offense…

10. Wake Forest – Biggest game since Tim Duncan was in uniform (you didn't know he played football?)…

11. Miami – Just playing out the rest of the season…

12. Maryland – Fear the Turtle? Fear an angry bunch of Tigers…

13. Alabama – Offense is for sissies…

14 South Carolina – Now Arkansas – not fun. Cocks need a win ASAP…

15. Florida State – Losers (again)…

16. Kentucky – 4-4 and a winnable game against Georgia, but they won't do it…

17. Vanderbilt – Thumped Duke – now Florida. Nice transition…

18. Virginia – Who cares?

19. Ole Miss – Played well against Auburn last week, but lost…

20. NC State – Press conference called for day after season yet?

21. Mississippi State – Certainly one of the worst teams in the South…

22. Duke – Losing to Vandy – ouch…

23. North CarolinaNotre Dame?
