Dan Mullen hammered on social media after his 2nd loss to Kentucky in 4 years
For 31 years, no Florida coach lost to Kentucky. Dan Mullen has now lost twice to UK in 4 years.
As expected, Mullen is getting hammered on Twitter for No. 10 Florida’s 20-13 loss at Kentucky, the Gators’ second conference loss of the 2021 season.
Mullen’s decision to kill the clock with 1:30 and 3 timeouts at the end of the half instead of trying to set up a score loomed large and was frequently mentioned.
Here’s a small sample of what fans and media members had to say on the bird app:
WTF IS DAN MULLEN DOING!?!? If you don’t trust Emory Jones get him out of the game

I get that it’s a road SEC game with a loud crowd, but Dan Mullen eating his three time outs with a slim 10-7 lead at halftime after a first down at their own 34 was surprising — “shocking” said ESPN analyst Dan Orlovsky. Agree. Very un-Mullen like. Good to see AR15 back tho.

Mullen is having a worse game than Grantham.
There, I said it.

Laughing bitterly at Dan Mullen reducing Alabama to jelly one week and then turning around and completely forgetting how to football against Kentucky

Dan Mullen needed a generational QB and TE to go 8-4. He is what he is.

Mark Stoops has out-coached Dan Mullen all game with a quarter of the talent. https://t.co/2L20btBTXE

Mullen literally gameplans for one or two games a year and just mails it in the rest of the games

Dan Mullen drags a team down with his mediocre mentality? pic.twitter.com/5DTCTRx6wk

Absolutely the worst game under Dan Mullen

There’s no such thing as the Kentucky aneurism game. It’s Mullen being out coached by a better staff. Simple as that

Mullen good for one bad loss a year.

Under Dan Mullen, this team plays down to their competition EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
That's not the standard, and that won't win championships.

Mullen finna get on Indeed and apply for that USC job when the game over
