The SEC is, and always has been, and probably always will be, a defensive conference. That's its character and it's calling card, a tradition it's carried on for decades.

But the sport of college football is changing, and with that change comes a decreased emphasis on traditional schematics. Games are played faster and in more open space, the scores are higher than they ever used to be. Now any time you hold a team under 28 points, for the most part, it has to be considered a mild success.
