While there’s still time for things to turn around, Florida is currently tied with Samford at home. That just can’t happen for a school that’s supposed to be an SEC powerhouse.
Considering the Gators are already on a three-game losing streak, a loss to the Bulldogs today could potentially put Mullen on the hot seat.
Believe it or not, Florida fans are already begging for Mullen to get fired. In fact, some fans want him to get fired during halftime.

Earlier today, ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit questioned the Gators’ commitment to the game.
“I think there needs to be a different approach,” Herbstreit said on College GameDay. “The reality in 2021 is when you have a team that is capable of winning a championship and making a playoff — this team was 3-1 and 10th in the nation – and then things got sideways after the loss to Kentucky. In my opinion, you can lose a team. They start to become more individually focused on whatever their aspirations are.
“I think that happened to Florida last year in the opt-outs for the bowl game and it’s happened again this year. You’re seeing a team that’s quitting on each other. They’re quitting on their coach. There’s a spirit that’s missing in their locker room. That’s a problem.”
It’s always tough to tell if a team is truly quitting on its coach. Nonetheless, this is obviously not a great look for the Gators.
We’ll see if Florida can spark a comeback and defeat Samford this afternoon.
