Dan Mullen and the Florida Gators gave the Alabama No.1 everything he could handle on Saturday afternoon at The Swamp.
At the end of the fourth quarter, the Gators even scored on this impressive run from Dameon Pierce:

That reduced Tide’s lead to just 31-29, with the Gators lining up for a 2-point conversion try. And… well, what a test it was.
It was a playable game, and QB Emory Jones simply held the ball too long:

Is that what you suggested for a 2-point conversion?

Convert 2 points, you always pass because you can pass or run

This has to be one of the worst game calls I have ever seen on this Florida 2 point game

Why would you run this game for 2 points?

Worst 2-point call ever?

Practice playing 2 points while your money is playing there and that was it?!? Eh.

I have no idea what that play call was on the 2 point conversion – it failed and now Bama is getting the ball back with 3:10 to go, up 31-29

You have to go far on 2 point games. Give yourself options.
