“Well, they trolled us first, you know what I mean?”

The only thing more awkward than Dan Mullen’s recent attempts at trolling is an article ($$) trying to justify Dan Mullen’s recent attempts at trolling.

Then there was the comment Mullen made about player transfers. He was asked a general question about players receiving more waivers for immediate eligibility. This was in March, before the start of spring practice and after Fields had left Georgia for Ohio State.

“I’d think we did a poor job recruiting if guys were coming in and then immediately walking out the door because it was something different than what they thought it would be and we lied to them during recruiting, or we sold them on a dream that wasn’t true,” Mullen said.

Fans from rival schools were quick to revive the quote after Florida players entered the NCAA Transfer Portal, but, to be fair to Mullen, he was specifically discussing being truthful in recruiting pitches and didn’t make it seem like the Gators would be immune to attrition…

Riiight.  He’s college football’s fearless truth teller on the recruiting trail.

      “Keep telling us the crow tastes like chicken”…perfectly said. The Florida stans in sports media have been spinning like crazy the last few months.

  2. Georgia thumps him this fall – wouldn’t surprise me at all if he is ‘toast’ at the end of the year… I honestly do not think he’ll make the length of his contract.

      He’ll get at least partially through 2021. They’re not gonna fire him after two or three seasons.

        When they do fire Mullen, you’re coming back to coach UF, right? Irvin to the rescue, part 2? All this USC chatter is just hot air, right? Right, Irvin?

    How long before he reports getting the same death threats the sharkhumper allegedly received?

  5. Dan Mullen is a primary antagonist in why the Ole Miss / Miss State rivalry got out of hand because he stopped acting like one of the adults in the room. Why do people pretend this isn’t just a part of his id?

      This, in spades. He’s a troll and a troller and he help bring in a high level of acrimony to the Egg Bowl with his shtick. Somehow, he’s managed to get a pass on being a prick….losses to UGA gonna change that. More popcorn!

    I keep thinking how Saban makes teams pay on the field when he feels his team has been disrespected. Let’s hope Smart learned that lesson well. I could certainly handle seeing us give Mullen a heaping helping of humble pie!

    If I were Kirby Smart, all during Florida week I would play video of how Mark Richt’s Bulldogs acted like foolish idiots before the 2015 Georgia-Bama Game while pointing out how composed and business-like Bama was along with video cut-ups of all of Sideshow Dan the Clown’s trolling of Georgia.

    I would preach composure and discipline even more than normal, but would make sure they knew anything less than scoring 50 points against Florida would be unacceptable.

    FUCK THESE MOTHERFUCKERS!

        Shocked, shocked that you would not understand that I wasn’t using this to knock Richt, but to illustrate how I would use proof of how Bama players and coaches acted in the face of trash talk and nonsense from another team in a way that would show real value to them: ie, from players wearing their same uniforms.

        Take your ridiculousness somewhere else. I don’t have time for it today.

        Also, his name is Mark Richt. Only adolescent fanboys use the ridiculous sobriquet: CMR. Or CKS. Or CNS. These are grown men. Use their names.

          You lecturing someone on here (or these other sites on which you post) about “adolescent fanboys” or “not having time” (for another comment) is the height of irony

            I’m not knocking Richt. Offense is taken, not given. If I am knocking Richt, you’ll know it.

            So turn down your Richtdar, fanboy.

          I do not have a dog in this fight but by that rationale, it would be, “University of Southern California”. As an obviously busy man, I would think abbreviated internet speak would be a welcomed change to formal longhand.

  9. The FU hc is willing to sling most anything in any direction to deflect any criticism of his handling of FU football player bad behavior, (i.e. being charged with battery by law enforcement)
