Haney: Pruitt can turn around UGA defense

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 hereInsider to read Haney's story.
