Dan Mullen contracts COVID-19 shortly after declaring Florida should fill its stadium

It’s always interesting how these situations play out, isn’t it?

Not even a week after declaring that Florida should fill its football stadium to full capacity for an upcoming game despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, it was announced on Saturday that Gators head coach Dan Mullen has contracted COVID-19.

Florida and LSU were initially scheduled to face each other on Saturday, although that game was postponed following a multitude of positive coronavirus tests throughout the UF program that left the team severely undermanned. Following Florida’s loss to Texas A&M last Saturday, Mullen immediately opened his press conference by saying that they needed to “Pack the Swamp” for the next home game, alluding to the Aggies’ fans who apparently made it impossible for his players to perform on the field. For those wondering, The Swamp (Ben Hill Griffin Stadium) holds close to 89,000 people.

“Absolutely want to see 90,000 in The Swamp,” Mullen said. “Hopefully that creates a home-field advantage for us next week because now we passed a law in our state that we can do that.”

Mullen doubled-down on his statement over the following days, but eventually backtracked those comments this past Wednesday, the same day that the matchup against LSU was postponed. Florida’s AD said on Wednesday that any decision regarding fan attendance will be out of Mullen’s expertise.

The postponement has caused a massive scheduling conflict throughout the rest of the SEC, with several other games being moved around as a result. Kentucky’s matchup dates against Missouri and Georgia have already been swapped.

Pleaseeee take this seriously, folks.

    Good football coach but man what are you trying to do? Get more people infected? FL is already a disaster with covid cases.

    Oh no! The wretched common cold! He must be scared for his life! Give the guy a blankey and some Gator stew, he’ll be just fine in a couple of days.

    Testing positive or negative means nothing, there’s still no reliable test for this BS virus.

    It’s way past time to cancel this season. It’s just not worth it.

      You both picked us to lose at Tennessee. Yeah I’m sure neither one of you want to see us beat Georgia in 2 weeks.

    “Tested positive” tells me little.

    Ask Nick Saban how he feels after testing positive? Oh wait, he tested positive and then he has three straight days of negative tests. Is everyone tested like that after testing positive? What a shit show this has become.

      Learned from a nurse at the local hospital that every test counts as a case, so Saban’s 4 tests counts as 4 cases. Starting to see how the get the numbers?

      That doesn’t make sense. If every positive test counts as a case then he would have one case for one positive test. Why would they could his negative tests as cases?

      Then it’s easy to see why the numbers stay so high which tells us all we need to know.

      Yea,. 4ver “learned from a nurse at a local hospital”. The self-proclaimed know it all had to listen to a nurse that would have no say so in determining that not would she have that knowledge.

      Maybe she got that knowledge from a doctor or maybe she saw some statistics on how cases are counted? I would think nurses are in the loop so to speak at the hospital they work at. Just saying

      You would think and you would be wrong… Just sayin. They don’t share that information with nurses!

      You’re right it makes no sense, unless you’re trying falsify the numbers and that’s exactly what’s been going on from day one of the plandemic.

      They are no longer focusing on deaths, now it’s cases if you listen to the lying media.

    Saban conquered it in about what, 3 days? Does anyone really know how to deal with this? ( besides Biden)

      Crazy how happily excited Zack is the coach might have it? Might is right, sense testing isn’t reliable and they love to say people are positive.
      Zack, drop your libtard spin and stick to sports.

    You’re a dumbass 4ever. I myself think it’s mostly safe as well but you think EVERYTHING is a damn conspiracy. You and your YouTube buddies are so educated. Lmao.

    Yawn…Headline next week…Mullen is fine.

    And, the headline will also be that deaths exceed 250,000 from the virus. I hope Coach Mullen recovers without long term effects. But, failing to respect this virus and to ignore science is not smart.

    My uncle died from COVID. Hes dead. I wont see him again. He was one of my best friends. When one of you dumbasses have someone pass away from this, you’ll go through the hard task of putting a goddamn mask on. Assholes.
