Dan Mullen shredded on social media as Florida falls to LSU at home
Dan Mullen was talking about Florida playing in the College Football Playoff even with a loss to LSU before Saturday’s game (and may continue that talk after the game) but the Gators head coach has a lot of issues to address after UF’s 37-34 loss at home to a depleted LSU team that arrived with a 3-5 record.
Mullen was shredded on social media after the game. His decision to call a timeout for LSU’s game-winning field goal when the Tigers might have had trouble getting the field-goal team on the field in time was an especially hot topic.
Here’s a small sample of what’s being said:
Florida got a defensive stop and was going to get the ball and have a chance to win. Then:
-Defender goes all George W. Bush Iraq press conference on the wide receiver's shoe for a 15-yard penalty
-Mullen calls timeout to take LSU's FG team out of scramble mode and spot 'em 3

Horrible clock management…
Then Mullen calls a timeout.
Is this real life? #LSU

Two cataclysmic gaffes for Florida in the final moments. Marco Wilson's bonehead penalty and Dan Mullen overthinking and calling timeout to aid LSU in a chaotic situation.

Look forward to hearing Dan Mullen explain whose fault – definitely not his – this choke is.

Woof. Brutal for the league. Mullen should have started a brawl.

"Would a 2-loss Florida team who is the SEC Champs get in the CFB Playoff?"
LOL, don't worry. That scenario won't play itself out.
Bama is going to bludgeon Florida and Dan Mullen is finishing with 3-losses.

Dan Mullen was probably unfairly tagged as the guy who always blew it in the big spot before this game. He earned it tonight.
He’ll never shake it, either.

What an embarrassing loss, all on Mullen

Mullen will be throwing in the towel at half. Bama by 30+

That’s not on the kicker. That’s on Marco and Mullen

Clown Mullen rears his head.
