Florida gets roasted on social media for kicking late FG in blowout bowl loss
The Florida Gators are getting roasted for the way the SRS Distribution Las Vegas Bowl ended.
Down 30-0 with 42 seconds remaining, Billy Napier decided to send out his field goal unit. The Gators had not been shut out since 1988, and Napier did not want that dubious distinction.
Adam Mihalek made the 40-yard FG to make the score 30-3, thus avoiding the shutout.

The move set social media abuzz, with many criticizing the decision.
Napier isn’t a killer and he will not last in Gainesville. https://t.co/42mHE8x35l

Napier REALLY did not want to get shut out. The Gators end their season with a 6-7 record.
