Dan Mullen’s not sayin’, y’all. He’s just sayin’.
Dan Mullen, who is catching heat from the Florida fans and media over the UGA loss, turned his attention to the SEC about officiating on Monday.
Mullen wants to know what the SEC’s “motive is” for allowing Lawrence Cager’s catch in the second quarter to stand in UGA’s 24-17 win over the Gators (see below for the video). The catch was reviewed on replay, and confirmed as a reception.
The Florida coach was asked if he’s heard from the SEC office about the call.
“I’ve not gotten any word, we’ve asked,” Mullen said on Monday during his weekly press conference.
“You’d have to ask them that, that decision was made in Birmingham on that play. I’ve asked, I haven’t heard anything from them. I guess you’d have to ask what their motive is for making the decision the way they did in Birmingham. That had nothing to do with on-the-field officials.”
Cool beans, buddy. While you’re at it, maybe you could check on the motivation behind this no-call:
What are the odds Mullen spends the offseason telling Gator booster groups that the refs stole the Cocktail Party from Florida? Hey, it’s gotta work better than the truth.
