Not much distinction there. The only outlier is UAB.

South Carolina has the 28th ranked offense in the country.

They scored...

27 on North Carolina
30 on Georgia
35 on Vanderbilt
28 on UCF
35 on Kentucky
52 on Arkansas
21 on Tennessee

Again, not much distinction. The only outlier is Arkansas.
Fair enough. I see your point. It confirms the idea that the SEC is down this year and probably overrated too, but I still think it's maybe only for this year. Every team outside of Bama's been going through some pains, except for Auburn which has been a pleasant surprise to its fans, I imagine.
I do agree that the introduction of some explosive offenses along with other factors is changing the "defensive" label of the SEC, though.
