Adam Spencer | 22 hours ago

Dan Mullen and the Florida Gators were put to a tough test by Josh Heupel and the Tennessee Volunteers at The Swamp on Saturday night.

After half time, however, it was all Gators as Florida scored an easy 38-14 win over a SEC East rival.

After the game, Mullen met with the media and discussed several topics, including a couple of key violations for the Gators.

Here’s some of what he said in his post-game press conference:

On Tennessee’s improvements under Josh Heupel:

Mullen says you can see the improvements Tennessee made under Heupel. #Gators half challenged that if they want to be a great team they have to take every snapshot. I liked the answer.

Regarding the condition of backup QB Anthony Richardson:

Mullen says they got Anthony Richardson up to speed on Friday. Was still a bit tight when accelerating and braking. He’s released to play, but wanted to get through with him in the backup role again tonight.

Going forward, I have a feeling that it will be 100% by Monday.

Dan Mullen on AR15: “If he had pushed for it, he could be out for six weeks. We were fortunate that he didn’t have to come into the game in the last two weeks and he will be ready to go. ‘

For defensive performance, especially after half-time:

Mullen says the defense played superbly. “I thought Todd did a great job getting the boys ready to play.”

Missed tackles and a blown coverage on touchdowns.

“You saw what Todd and his people could do in the second half to make adjustments and place a shutout.”
