Southern Football Predictions

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

1. LSU – Can put Gators in real trouble with win…
2. Kentucky – Are these guys for real?
3. Florida – Terrible effort vs. Auburn - no one should be scared of these Gators...
4. South Carolina – Virtaul must-win game tonight…
5. Georgia – Better not get a slow start this Saturday in Knoxville - a very winnable game…
6. Virginia Tech - Kind of worried about these guys...
7. Clemson – Tech loss was bad, but doesn't mean much for Tigers in ACC - they still have to beat BC later in the year to win it…
8. Florida State – Loss to Tigers is a killer now...
9. Alabama – Could stumble after this week…
10. Miami – Canes emerging in the ACC…
11. Auburn – Are these guys as bad as they have looked? Are they as good as they look vs. Florida? Yes - to both…
12. Arkansas - Taking deep breaths before hitting the SEC again...
13. Tennessee – Need to beat Georgia to get back on track...
14. Virginia – Hoos have turned it around a little...
15. Wake Forest – Should beat Duke this week…
16. Mississippi State – Played well for three quarters, but gell short in Columbia - now the fighting Neil Callaways of UAB...
17. Maryland – Upset Rutgers last week - I'm still not sold...
18. Vanderbilt – State beat Auburn on the road why can't Vandy? Because they won't…
19. Ole Miss – Not a bad team, but need to start toppling the likes of Florida and Georgia…
20. N.C. State – Yuck…
21. Georgia Tech – Tech was just the team Clemson slipped against - still don't like these Jackets...
22. Duke – Covered the line against the Canes - I've seen worse from these guys before...
23. Wofford – Beat Furman...
