Southern Football Predictions

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

1. LSU – Shouldn't be challanged until Arkansas - if then…
2. Georgia – Don't think the Tigers want to play Georgia...
3. Virginia Tech – Looking good…
4. Virginia – Just waiting to play Virginia Tech...
5. Clemson - Time for Bowden's crew to finnaly do it...
6. Florida – Gators need all sorts of things to happen to get to Atlanta - it looks more like Orlando and the fighting Zookers…
7. Tennessee – Should beat Vandy…
8. Auburn – Two woodshed beats from the Dawgs hurt…
9. Alabama – I thought Lord Saban was going to beat State - was wrong...
10. Kentucky – Can shock Dawgs in sandwhich game and move thier way up the SEC Bowl chain…
11. Wake Forest - Not even in the same ballpark as Clemson - and had better watchout for Vandy...
12. Mississippi State – Win over Tide was classic - State and Georgia to play for Alabama State Title in December...
13. Florida State – So much for resurrecting season…
14. Vanderbilt – Stuck with the Cats for a while - Dawgs are praying for Vandy win vs. Vols...
15. Arkansas – So much for that "upset" in Knoxville...
16. Georgia Tech - Need win over Georgia to make season anything close to a success...
17. South Carolina – Pathetic - Cocks and Steve can't wait for this season to end - my, what a bad month will do to you...
18. Maryland – Beat BC - (I just shrugged my shoulders)...
19. Miami – Nothing snappy to say about the Canes' exit from the Orange Bowl - just that, like South Carolina, they are happy to see the end of the season...
20. Ole Miss – Easy Ed hoping for upset of LSU and State - probably not going to happen, but he shouldn't get fired...
21. NC State – Program that is looking up…
22. North Carolina – Tech can't sell out the North Carolina game? Stunner...
23. Duke – Notre Dame week - a real-life Toilet Bowl brought to you by NBC and its very disappointed sponsors...
