Dan Mullen was so salty after the shoe-throwing event

Florida Gators coach Dan Mullen didn’t have a graceful defeat after his second defeat of the season.

His team fell to the LSU Tigers team on Saturday night, 37-34. Technically, Florida lost after missing a field goal at the end of time. But in fact, it was Marco Wilson’s fourth quarter-shoe throw at the Gators defensive back that sank Florida.

With a draw of 1:51 and 34 a.m., the Tigers scored just four yards with a third and 10 points – until LSU gave a new series of downs until Wilson’s shoe break. An LSU player lost his shoes and Wilson tossed them. Naturally. The Tigers finished the lead with a goal from the advancing field, which eventually proved to be a game winner.

So when Mullen was asked to throw his shoes, he didn’t seem to be excited by the official’s question or call.

During the press conference, they were asked about the College Football Playoff. If Florida had won on Saturday, they would have had a cleaner path. Two defeats and a match against the Alabama Crimson Tide in the SEC next week will complicate the Gators ’journey to the playoffs.

However, Mullen seems to believe his journey is more legitimate than other teams that have not played as many matches this season, mainly due to the cancellation of the COVID-19 epidemic.

Here’s what he said through AL.com:

“I know we played 10 games, so probably the best thing would have been to play fewer games,” Mullen said. “Because he seems to be rewarded for not playing in college football this year.”


He is probably talking about the state of Ohio (5-0), which is the biggest beneficiary of the Florida loss. Of course, he could only have done his thing and defeated the LSU team, which was knocked out of Alabama by 55-17 last week. He could have given advice to his players against open demonstrations to mock their opponent. But Mullen decided to signal the mistake elsewhere.
