Dan Mullen has funny reaction to question about supposed Feleipe Franks locker room rift
Dan Mullen had a funny reaction to a question about a supposed rift in the locker room involving Feleipe Franks following Florida’s 38-17 loss to Missouri on Saturday.
Franks was benched during the third quarter of the loss as he struggled to move the offense. Some chatter on 247 Florida message board Alligator Alley suggested that Franks nearly got into a fight in the locker room after the game for not taking his benching seriously.
Check out Mullen’s face when he was asked about the rumor during a press conference this week:

Mullen went on to deny knowledge of a scuffle or issue, saying he that something might have occurred after everyone left.
“No. No. Not… I mean, if it was, it was like late, late at night after everybody went home and there were one or two people left maybe in the locker room,” Mullen said, via 247 Sports’ Bob Redman.
Mullen also said the team’s focus seemed to be in the right place following the loss and that players have been attentive.
Florida is 6-3 and has lost two in a row. They host South Carolina this weekend then take on Idaho and Florida State to end the season.
