We’re at — or perhaps a bit beyond — the midpoint of the SEC season, and while your favorite team has hopefully experienced some big wins and made some great plays, there’s no doubt (well, a little doubt because of Alabama) that your team’s weaknesses have also appeared.

Here’s one area in which each SEC team has been exposed.

Alabama: There’s really little to expose here. The No. 1 Tide have struggled in some areas of special teams, missing four field goals, ranking 10th in the league in kickoff coverage, and being 9th in kickoff returns. That said, Alabama’s special teams overall are fine. This is like hunting a mole on a beauty pageant winner.

Arkansas: The Razorbacks defense is very bad on third downs. Opponents have converted 47.2 percent of third downs against the Razorbacks, which is next to worst in the SEC. This has something to do with Arkansas failing to keep up with Texas A&M and Alabama, and thus ending up playing for third in the SEC West.

Auburn: The Tigers are last in the SEC with just three interceptions. While the Tigers have only thrown three interceptions, their failure to create more turnovers (eight total, tied for last in the conference) could hurt them down the stretch.

Florida: Penalties, penalties, penalties. Maybe it’s because the Gators are fairly young, or maybe they’re not disciplined enough. Or maybe it’s their hard-hitting defense … but whatever the cause, the Gators are the most penalized team in the SEC — by more than 11 yards per game over the next most penalized team. If the Gators want to win the East, they need to clean up all the flags.

Georgia: The Bulldogs play a fair number of close games, and some putrid special teams play has left some costly points on the field. UGA is last in the SEC in punting, kickoff coverage and field goal percentage, and hasn’t impressed on kick or punt returns.  A few more points in a few more games would have greatly changed UGA’s season.

Kentucky: Kentucky can’t take care of the ball. UK’s 16 turnovers is next to worst in the SEC, and its 8 forced turnovers is tied for last. All of which means that UK’s -8 turnover margin is by far the worst in the SEC. If Kentucky wants to get bowl eligible, it must improve that number.

LSU: Brandon Harris was somehow chosen third team all-SEC pre-season. Danny Etling is the QB now, Ed Orgeron is the coach, and the Tigers, despite some resurgence, are still one of the weakest passing offenses in the SEC, amassing just 180.5 passing yards per game.

Mississippi State: Your team’s pass defense has been shown up. Despite the fact that the Bulldogs have played almost no competent passing offenses, they have allowed 225 passing yards per game and are last in the SEC in pass efficiency defense. The Bulldogs have allowed 13 touchdowns and managed just six interceptions through the air.

It’s going to get worse, too: The Bulldogs still have to face Trevor Knight, Jalen Hurts, Austin Allen and Chad Kelly.

Missouri: Special teams have hurt the Tigers. Three missed extra points, and one of the lower field goal percentages in the SEC, and ranking toward the bottom in kickoff returns and kickoff coverage has contributed to Mizzou’s underwhelming first half.

Ole Miss: There is no “D” in Mississippi, figuratively or literally. The Rebels are last in the SEC in defensive yardage allowed (446 yards per game) and next to last in scoring defense (30.3 PPG allowed). This doomed Ole Miss to coughing up leads down the stretch to Florida State and Alabama — and thus, to the middle of the pack of the SEC West.

South Carolina: It’s hard to win games without scoring. While nobody expected the Gamecock offense to resemble the early ’90s Buffalo Bills, USC’s nine touchdowns on the season are two fewer than Alabama’s non-offensive touchdown total. That’s right, Bama’s defense and punt returners have outscored South Carolina. You can’t win if you don’t score, and no team in America scores less than the Gamecocks.

Tennessee: The Tennessee rushing attack has been underwhelming. The Vols are 11th in the SEC in rushing, with just 169.6 yards per game. Injuries have decimated the offensive line, causing massive shuffling, and the talented running backs have underachieved a bit, but UT will certainly look to improve the ground game in the rest of the season.

Texas A&M: While A&M’s defense holds opponents to 19.2 points per game, it gives up big chunks of yardage. A&M gives up 437.5 yards per game — only 8.5 yards out of the cellar of the league. It hasn’t hurt them yet, but it isn’t a good sign.

Vanderbilt: The offense has been offensive. Ralph Webb has been one of the top backs in the league, but Vandy is still last in yardage per game (281.1 yards) and next to last in scoring offense (18.7 ppg). The main culprit is passing, where Vandy is last in the SEC and No. 120 nationally in yardage (146.1 yards per game) and passing efficiency. Vandy’s bowl hopes hang on throwing the ball much better.
