Dan Mullen earned an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty against Georgia after complaining to the officials about a pass interference call.
On third-and-goal, Jake Fromm lofted a pass to the end zone that fell incomplete. However, the officials called pass interference in the end zone, giving the Bulldogs first and goal at the 1-yard line. Mullen was furious about the call and lit into the officials, which drew another flag.

But other people watching the game didn’t agree with the call, or else they liked that Mullen stood up for his players.
That’s a ref with an agenda. What a terrible terrible call in a big time moment.

Dan Mullen just got flag and penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct.
Let’s face it, if your head coach doesn’t get flagged every now and then…how invested is he?#gators
