Mullen has had to revive a dormant program. He has done a terrific job of bringing enthusiasm back to the Gators. Allowing Wright and McGriff to be a part of the game will probably make Mullen a favorite among former players. There is a tremendous benefit to that.
Still, it’s hard to believe the Gators have fallen so far that the spring game has to become a sideshow. Hopefully, once Mullen is winning, the spring game can get back to feeling like a real competition.
I’m not saying I wouldn’t love to see Danny Wuerffel throw a touchdown pass to Emmitt Smith next year. Just don’t count it on the scoreboard.
