Florida would have had every excuse to lose the game against LSU on Saturday. The Gators had what seemed like a dozen key players out with injuries, they should have been playing Presbyterian and Florida had to travel to Baton Rouge rather than getting the scheduled home game.
However, the Gators didn’t let all of those factors or the people talking about how “scared” they were to play the game get in their head. Coach Jim McElwain knows all of those things ultimately led to the incredible goal line stop on the last series of the game and let all of his emotions hang out in the post-game interview with the SEC Network’s Kaylee Hartung.
Look at Mac and his glorious emotions. He clearly loves his team and he was there to defend them against the “scared” talk from the beginning too and now with the win he gets to do some calling out of his own. Good for him and this team to get the win and clinch the SEC East title.
