Missouri top Florida 24-23 overtime on Saturday afternoon in Columbia, putting the Gators on the brink of disqualification better than what has been an alarmingly dismal mid-season endeavor. Just two months ago, Florida beat Alabama by two points and looked like a challenger beyond the SEC East. Now, the question may be whether coach Dan Mullen will survive the season.
To add insult to injury, Tigers coach Eli Drinkwitz pulled off an epic trolling against Mullen during his post-match press conference. Drinkwitz, entering his second season with the Tigers, pulled his hood over his head and pulled a lightsaber from his pocket on his way out of the room.
“May the force be with you,” he said with a sly smile on his face.
For starters, Drinkwitz’s hit involved Mullen, who wore a Darth Vader helmet following his team’s 41-17 win over the Tigers in Gainesville last year. That game includes a halftime that got out of hand when the two teams entered the dressing room and needed to be separated.
The loss dropped Florida to 5-6 overall and 2-6 in conference play – the show’s worst conference win rate since 1979 – despite winning at the SEC East a year ago. Mullen stands right in the hot seat as a result of this season’s struggles, and Drinkwitz twisted the knife deeper with trolling during his press conference.
This is the kind of small thing that makes College football wonderful.
