ATHENS — When you’re seen as the No. 1 team in most preseason rankings and you return a possible Heisman Trophy quarterback in Carson Beck, you don’t have as many questions as most college football teams.

    I absolutely love the "challenges" with our secondary. If that's our biggest problem, man...

    Our biggest challenge is the relentlessly difficult schedule, perhaps the hardest in CFB. Go Dawgs!

    I’d say, ESPN “has AN IDEA what Georgia’s biggest question MIGHT be” entering spring practice. Coach smart and his Staff are the only one who can “IDENTIFY” what the biggest question is. ESPN is not the ultimate expert on the Dawgs.

    There is talent at each level of the D but there are also challenges at each level of the D. As always injuries will play a role in the success of the team. Especially on the D due to lack of quality depth at S. 6, 8, 12 and 15 have to make BIG jumps in ability AND stay healthy all year for the '24 D to approach a championship level D like those in '21 and '22.

    ILB and OLB may hold the most talent on the team. Questions still remain at ILB and OLB. Multiple guys need to get better than they have previously shown. Can UGA find an ILB that can plug a hole between the tackles? Can an OLB (or 2) develop some pass rush moves?

    Lotsa questions remain on the DL. Plenty of potential and talent. Who will step up? DL by committee seems logical again this year. 78, 93 and 97 need to step up their games this season. 13, 52 and 44 need to make BIG jumps in their games this season. Does the DL have a future NFL 1st rd pick on it? Right now, no.

    On O there are 2 keys and 2 knowns. The knowns are the starting QB and the RB room. The keys will be 1) who in the WR room steps up to become WR1 and WR2? Who in the room has the skill to become the next JBurton, Pickens, AD or LMcC and CONSISTENTLY deliver when needed? 2) there are 7 OL to play 5 positions. Can they stay healthy and form a cohesive, dominant unit to revive the run game and keep CBeck clean? Don't expect a lot (any?) RPO's from CBeck this year. Rule #1 for the OC this year is to protect CBeck. He cannot get hurt this year if UGA is to get to championship games.

    As UGADad has said, they’re several questions on D. Since ESPN has said it’s in the secondary, I’m reasonably sure that is not right. Consider the source. The biggest concern in my mind is the DL. We were not good at pressuring the QB last year. Plus, we had nobody who set the edge on sweeps. Gotta improve up front. LBs and DBs will be a strength. Gotta get better at getting after the QB. Basically every QB in the league will eat you alive if given time. Most of those QBs don’t look very good with pressure in their face.

    This article should be entitled, “ ESPN Takes a Wild Guess in Attempting to Identify Georgia Biggest Concern Entering Spring Practice.” Of course, they’re wrong, as usual.
