I do agree that the introduction of some explosive offenses along with other factors is changing the "defensive" label of the SEC, though.
Which is pretty much my point. Changing offensive styles have basically ended the myth of the SEC defense. Alabama, LSU, and Florida remain mostly unaffected because they can recruit elite talent on defense to counter.

I think the SEC is still the best conference (Pac-12 is closing the gap), but this "SEC defense" stuff has irked me for a while. It's no longer true unless the SEC is a 4-team conference of Bama, Florida, LSU, and South Carolina.
