Dan Mullen blew a gasket during Florida's game versus Kentucky on Saturday afternoon.

The Gators got off to a 7-0 lead thanks to a massive run-and-catch from superstar tight end Kyle Pitts. But Kentucky didn't bow down. The Wildcats responded with 10 points in the second quarter before Florida ended the half with a punt return for a touchdown to make it a 14-10 Gators lead at the half.

Florida's defense hasn't been great this season, but allowing just 10 points to the Wildcats should be viewed as a major success. The bigger issue is the time of possession disadvantage the Gators faced in the first half. Kentucky's lone scoring drive ate up over seven minutes of game clock.

Mullen isn't happy with defensive coordinator Todd Grantham. The Florida head coach lit him up on the sideline after a frustrating first half. Take a look below.

There isn't anything wrong here. Dan Mullen is passionate about his job, and he clearly wasn't pleased with some of Todd Grantham's first half decisions.

The Gators' lone issue this season is on the defensive side of the ball. Florida has an offense capable of beating any team in the nation, but is the defense capable of doing its job?

Florida currently leads Kentucky 14-10 at halftime. The Gators are are looking to win their seventh game of the season and move to 7-1 in the process.
