Jedi Eli Drinkowitz owns Dan Mullen after Missouri ousted Florida
Missouri Tigers coach Eli Drinkowitz dropped the mic and clapped again at Dan Mullen of the Florida Gators after his overtime win on Saturday.
The Florida Gators had a win over Samford, despite the fact that they allowed 42 points for the FCS. Sure, they had some momentum against the Missouri Tigers. Yes, it didn’t, as Missouri managed to win 24-23 in overtime.
After the match, Tiger coach Eli Drenkewitz dropped the microphone against Florida and Dan Mullen by lifting his sweatshirt and taking out his lightsaber before uttering six words.
“May the force be with you.”

Wearing a Drenkowitz as a Jedi makes sense. After the Gators defeated the Tigers 41-17 last year, Mullen appeared at his post-match press conference dressed as Halloween, star Wars Darth Vader character.
That’s why Drinkwitz decided to dress up as a Jedi in what was the ultimate mic drop.
Missouri led late 16-13 over Florida after a 41-yard touchdown pass from Conor Basilak to Nico Hee. However, a 33-yard field goal from Gators’ Chris Howard tied things up and effectively forced into overtime.
Florida got the plate first in overtime after Trent Whitmore hit Emory Jones for a six-yard touchdown. The Tigers responded with a 13-yard drop shot by Tyler Badie, but came out with the win after Basilac hit Daniel Parker Jr. for a successful two-point conversion.
Missouri will be looking to end their regular season in a big way on Friday by defeating the Arkansas team that gave Alabama a fight this weekend. Meanwhile, Mullen and Gators will turn their attention to Florida’s Seminole next weekend.
