Standing at 6-foot-7 and 340 pounds, not much can move Georgia right tackle Isaiah Wilson. Well, unless he wants to be moved easily.
On one particular third-and-11 with about 30 seconds left in the first half, Wilson fell backwards despite barely appearing to be touched when Florida defensive end Jabari Zuniga jumped offside. The “flop,” however funny and ridiculous it seemed on television, gave Georgia five yards.

Even if Wilson was half his size, there wasn’t enough force to knock him backwards as quickly as he went. But Wilson’s flop, which was pretty hilarious, turned third-and-11 into a third-and-6.
The Bulldogs still failed to convert the third down — one of just three failed third-down attempts out of 11 for the Georgia offense in the first half — but Wilson’s flop drawing a free five yards made Rodrigo Blankenship’s field goal a little easier.
Georgia led Florida, 13-3, at halftime.
