Southern Football Predictions
Miami Cheerleader
Posted Nov 1, 2007

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

1. LSU – Do or die this weekend in T-Town…
2. Alabama – Seems like the best team in the West...
3. Georgia – Needs a little luck to get back to Atlanta for something other than the Chick...
4. Auburn – Tigers still mathmatically in the West, but really a spoiler now - watch out Georgia…
5. Virginia Tech – Barely lost to BC - should not have happened…
6. Virginia - Bad loss last week, but still a real challanger in the ACC...
7. Tennessee – Someone is livin' right on Rocky Top…
8. Clemson – Keep your ducks in a row and have an outside shot at the ACC - a loss to Duke should end Bowden's coaching gig there…
9. Wake Forest – Ranked, but that loss to BC is a killer now...
10. Kentucky – Really bad loss to State - is this just another so-so Kentucky team? Starting to look that way…
11. Florida - Knowshon Moreno just scored another touchdown...
12. South Carolina – Should have beaten the Vols - Carolina football is full of shoud haves…
13. Arkansas – In order to avoid Shereveport a win over the Cocks is a must...
14. Vanderbilt – Time to knock off the Gators once and for all...
15. Miami – Doing better, but I'm not buying in yet...
16. Georgia Tech – A confusing team - still...
17. Maryland – Blah...
18. Florida State – Not a good program…
19. Mississippi State – Big win - a bowl is a must now...
20. Ole Miss – Only team eleminated from SEC - but I do think the program is going the right way...
21. North Carolina – Still not buying in, yet, but I'm not far from it...
22. NC State – Good win, O'Brien turning this once "joke" program around…
23. Duke – Nasty (bad)...
