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.
