Southern Football Predictions
Miami Cheerleader
Posted Nov 9, 2007

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

1. LSU – Shouldn't be challanged until Arkansas…
2. Georgia – Do or die for Dawgs...
3. Auburn – Not explosive on offense - can the defense get them through difficult two-game stretch?
4. Virginia Tech – In control of destiny…
5. Alabama – Difficult loss to LSU - what could have been the entire season…
6. Virginia - see comment on Virginia Tech...
7. Tennessee – Doesn't feel like the Vols are in control of the East…
8. Florida – Need help, luck and wins, but can still make it to Atlanta - somehow…
9. Clemson – Still waiting for the Tigers to fall apart...
10. Wake Forest – Speaking of which…
11. Kentucky - Not a good week for off-week...
12. Arkansas – Maybe the best running attack in the SEC since the split…
13. Florida State – Finnally a big win - about time…
14. Vanderbilt – Loss to Florida was expected, but a late-season win is a must for a bowl - and that's not happened a lot of late (of late as in since the early 80s)...
15. Miami – Time to knock off the Gators once and for all...
16. South Carolina – McFadden just scored another touchdown - wheels fallen off and car won't start...
17. Georgia Tech – Pathetic performace last week. I mean it was really bad. Will Gailey survive this? Not looking good...
18. Maryland – Who cares - anyone even read this far down the list? (Why to look for typos?)
19. Mississippi State – Win over Tide would be classic...
20. Ole Miss – Taking the week off...
21. North Carolina – A sort-of must-win this week...
22. NC State – See above…
23. Duke – Too bad Notre Dame wasn't on the schedule this season...
