Kevin Sumlin and the "Air Raid" offense that he brings to the Texas A&M Aggies looks to make a splash in 2012 in perhaps the most defensive minded league in the country.
The SEC is not much for offense—just look at the stats from last year. The conference did not have a single team in the top 25 in total offense.
However, SEC fans will be quick to let you know that it's defense that wins championships.
Just look at the last six national championship teams. All six have been from the Southeastern Conference, and all six had strong defensive units.
It may not be Conference-USA for Sumlin and his preferred offensive strategy, but the books shouldn't be closed too soon.
If the Aggies can find a solid quarterback, it could be a revolutionary year in the nation's best conference for several reasons.
