Dan Mullen criticized for postgame comments about DC Todd Grantham
Dan Mullen’s Florida Gators faced an LSU team on Saturday that rushed for 499 yards through its first 6 games. The Tigers ran for 321 yards on Todd Grantham’s UF defense in a 49-42 upset win in Baton Rouge.
Despite the loss and the poor performance by the Florida defense, Mullen said his perspective on Grantham is unchanged by Saturday. As expected, Gator fans are not pleased with that response, which was shared by UF beat reporters covering the postgame press conference. Some fans went as far as tagging Florida athletic director Scott Stricklin in replies and quote-tweets.
Here’s a small sample of what’s being said on Twitter:

If that's the truth then they might both be unemployed soon
