When the goal is to win a national title, and that’s Georgia’s goal year after year, fall camp simply can’t get here soon enough. That’s certainly the case in Athens, where Georgia is ready to contend for a national title for the third year in a row under coach Kirby Smart.

With camp here, here are 10 pressing questions — and the appropriate mid-July answers:

1. Is this the year Georgia finally gets over the (Alabama) hump?

For 2 years in a row, the Bulldogs had Alabama beat and let the Tide off the hook. First it was the national championship game at the end of the 2017 season, and then it happened again last year in the SEC Championship Game. Georgia blew big second-half leads in both games, costing them a shot at national titles both years.

Alabama and defending national champion Clemson join Georgia at the top of the heap again in 2019. The Bulldogs certainly have the talent to compete for a title, but everything is going to have to fall into place for that to happen. Can it happen? Sure it can.

2. Is QB Jake Fromm a legitimate Heisman Trophy candidate?

Of course he is. Georgia junior Jake Fromm is a 3-year starter, and he has the game — and experience — to lead the Bulldogs to a title. If Georgia is in position to contend for a national title, then Fromm will certainly be in the conversation. Alabama’s Tua Tagovaioloa and Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence and back for more too, but if Fromm can will all the big games all year, he’ll have a shot.

Fromm is a precise passer — he completed 67.3 percent of his throws last year, with 30 touchdowns and only 6 interceptions — and has tremendous leadership skills. If he has a big year, Georgia will too.

3. Or does Georgia have a better Heisman candidate?

Quarterbacks win Heismans, and if not, running backs do. That’s why D’Andre Swift has to be considered a candidate as well. He’s been a standout back, rushing for 1,049 yards a year ago despite being hobbled with nagging injuries during much of the first half of the season.

What if he’s healthy all year in 2019 and the Bulldogs rely on their strong running game to wear people down? A healthy Swift could run for 1,500 yards or more, and be a huge threat in the passing game. Georgia has plenty of depth at running back, but some big games early might keep him in the mix.

4. What’s our biggest fear with new OC James Coley?

Sometimes change is good, and there were plenty of Georgia backers who were glad to see former offensive coordinator Jim Chaney shuffle off to Tennessee. James Coley takes over as offensive coordinator, and though hopes are high, we still have no idea what will really happen with Coley running the show.

Coley likes to rely on his running backs, attacking on the ground and using them as threats in the passing game. With Swift and guys like James Cook, that’s a good thing. But the biggest question is how Coley will handle the pressure of play-calling in all of those high-pressure moments that come up in big games. For that, we’re going to have to wait and see.

5. And should we have fears with new DC Dan Lanning?

Probably not, because the thought process seems to be that not a lot will change under Lanning. We do know that Georgia needs to rush the passer better this year — the Bulldogs were last in the SEC in sacks per game last year — and that might become a priority in his play-calling and scheming.

He has a lot of pieces to work with, at all three levels. The biggest fear for now is how he will best handle all these moving pieces and have the right guys on the field at the right time. Mental and physical breakdowns appeared a bit too often last year, and it’s good for Lanning to help minimize that.

6. Are our concerns over WR depth legitimate?

Darn right they are. This was already an area of concern, and that was before top returning wide receiver Jeremiah Holloman was dismissed last month. He had only 418 yards and 5 touchdown catches last year, but that was still more than anyone coming back. With him gone, senior Tyler Simmons is the safest bet to step up, but it’s transfer Demetris Robertson who has the potential to become a big-time threat. He’s a former 5-star recruit with blazing speed. The big question is if he can be a consistent threat week after week. He’s never shown that. Much has been made about the fact he didn’t have a catch last season, but he had 50 as a freshman in 2016 at Cal. So we’ll have to wait and see. It’s still our biggest fear, this position group.

7. Will Georgia’s OL be the best in the conference?

With the exception of running back, there might not be a deeper or more talented position group on Georgia’s roster than the offensive line. This group has studs — most notably tackles Andrew Thomas and Isaiah Wilson and center Trey Hill — plus a ton of depth with guys who can play multiple positions. If this group completely dominates all year, they could lead Georgia to an SEC title — and maybe more.

8. Do the Bulldogs have 2 lockdown cornerbacks?

They had one last year with Deandre Baker, a first-team All-American who was a first-round pick of the New York Giants. Now Eric Stokes and Tyson Campbell take over at the corners, and the skill is definitely there for them to take elite receivers out of games. Campbell, a 5-star recruit who started as a freshman a year ago, lost his job to Stokes at midseason. A second year will do Campbell good, and this could be the year where he emerges as a star as well. Ten interceptions between them wouldn’t be a surprise.

9. Which young kids on defense will emerge as stars?

What’s nice about having back-to-back-to-back great recruiting classes is that there’s a ton of talent on campus, especially on defense. Take your pick among a half-dozen guys who have already made an impression as freshmen. Who will emerge as all-conference contenders? It might be too soon for true freshman Nolan Smith, the nation’s top-ranked recruit, but why not? He’s a special talent. Brenton Cox and Channing Tindall could have huge years as well.

10. Is there a threat yet to Georgia’s SEC East dominance?

Not unless a dozen injuries decimate Georgia’s starting lineup. Florida is coming, but there’s still a huge gap between Georgia and the rest of the division. Book your tickets to Atlanta now for the SEC title game.
