The Florida Gators called two timeouts in the first 3:30 minutes of Saturday's game against Georgia.
The Gators called timeout with 13:13 left in the first quarter, and then two plays later with 11:42 on a drive that went eight plays, but ultimately ended on an incomplete pass on fourth down at the Georgia 40-yard line.
Coach Dan Mullen said earlier this week that a lot went into calling the timeouts, and that there was an “administrative” problem. Gainesville Sun columnist Pat Dooley in a podcast called “Dooley Noted", said the issue with the early confusion was players wearing the wrong wristbands.
“(Kyle) Trask was getting one play, the receivers were getting another, it was a disaster,” Dooley said, and later confirmed the issue. “So obviously, that’s a bad mistake. That’s a mistake that shouldn’t be happening in Week (10), that’s a mistake that shouldn’t be happening at a program like this with all the people that are running around with jobs.”
