Watch: Dan Mullen hilariously drops a ‘War Eagle’ ahead of Auburn game
For the next few hours, Florida coach Dan Mullen is a very big Auburn fan.
The Gators need some major help if they want to win the SEC East this season. They’re 6-2 in the conference, but the Georgia Bulldogs are ahead of them at 5-1.
Florida could claw back a game Saturday, as Georgia has to go on the road to face the 12th-ranked Auburn Tigers. As long as that’s happening, Mullen is not hiding his preference for an Auburn win — right down to a “War Eagle.”

Of course, even this wouldn’t be enough. Georgia beat Florida head-to-head and hold the tiebreaker as a result. The Bulldogs have to lose two of three against Auburn, Texas A&M, and Georgia Tech to open the door for the Gators. That may be too much to ask.
It’s somewhat funny to see Mullen singing Auburn’s praises now. The tone was quite different just a month ago, but sometimes, you have to root for old foes for your own benefit.
