As we count down 50 days until the start of the 2014 college football season, ESPN Insider Travis Haney is answering at least one big question a day until South Carolina and Texas A&M’s kickoff on Aug. 28.

Today’s question: What kind of impact will new Georgia defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt have on the Bulldogs’ young and depleted defense?

Writes Haney: In time, Pruitt should stabilize and elevate the defense -- which, most coaches agree, ought to have been better the past few years. There’s nearly a consensus that UGA upgraded at DC in the offseason.

Keep this in mind, however: I’ve been told by those close to the UGA program not to expect 2013 Florida State-like magic in Pruitt’s first season in Athens. Click here Insider to read Haney's story.
