Florida, Vanderbilt coaches get into verbal spat after hit

Florida successfully channels emotions to shake off sluggish start at Vandy

Florida successfully channels emotions to shake off sluggish start at Vandy

The Commodores jumped out to a 21-3 lead at home, and tensions boiled over on the Florida sideline before halftime.

Officials ejected two Florida players after a Vanderbilt defender's helmet was knocked off on a punt return and both coaches yelled at each other as their teams spilled onto the field in a near-brawl. They scored 17 unanswered points to close the deficit, and then Gators running back Jordan Scarlett capped off the comeback with a 48-yard, go-ahead touchdown run. That series of events prompted a shouting match between Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason and UF defensive coordinator Todd Grantham as Mason attended to Odeingbo near the UF sideline.

But it seemed to be the jolt that he and the Gators needed for the second half.

It was a different story Saturday after things went south in the first half.

Houston was ejected from the game for the call, as was Florida linebacker Vosean Joseph, who was charged with an unsportsmanlike conduct. Because the parity is right there.I would say in this league, it's not about the one game. Mullen and Grantham now get the chance to iron out the team's defensive mistakes with an extra week of preparation.

"Some of it's just lack of execution, but don't go overboard just trying to make a special play".

Vandy had one last shot at a stop, but Perine ripped off a 10-yard run on third-and-3 from the Vandy 31 with 2:08 left, then added a first-down run into Vandy territory a play later. Not ours. I got a lot of respect for Dan. Don't try to cowboy and do your own thing. "I like the pat on the back rather than the kick in the rear end, so let's just keep working to keep it six inches higher". We're going to make some adjustments, we're going to scheme some things up, if we need to. We've won some games following the plan to win exactly. "And we did enough of that in the second half to win". Florida finished the game netting a season-high 576-yards of offense, while Franks threw for a career-high 284 yards. Jamauri Wakefield also ran for a TD. "It's how you fight through adversity and how you respond, and I think we responded really well".
