Dan Mullen explains why he showed up to postgame press conference in Darth Vader costume
After the Florida Gators routed the Missouri Tigers on Saturday (following a halftime brawl), coach Dan Mullen showed up to the press conference in an interesting outfit.
The Florida coach was dressed as Darth Vader, which many thought was a jab about the brawl.
However, as Mullen explained, it was simply a Halloween costume he had already picked out before anything happened on the field:
Apparently some people are having an issue with #DarthGator.
There are really more pressing issues to be worried about. I'm blaming these hot takes on the full moon.

We’ll see what Mullen decides to dress as next year. Perhaps it won’t cause as much controversy if he dresses up after a game where there isn’t a brawl?
Florida’s defense was a surprising treat last night, stopping the Tigers in their tracks for most of the night. Now, the trick for Florida will be avoiding too many suspensions.
