Dan Mullen doesn’t know who Wan’Dale Robinson is

And Vince Marrow is fully aware of it.

Through four games, Wan’Dale Robinson has arguably been the Kentucky Wildcats’ best player.

After playing running back and wide receiver at Nebraska for two years, the Frankfort (KY) native transferred back to his home state to become a full-time receiver, and it’s paid off in a big way for both him and Kentucky.

Entering Week 5, Robinson ranks first in the SEC in receiving yards (402) and is tied for the third-most receptions (25) while also catching two touchdowns. He also has four runs for 78 yards.

Most importantly, his team is 4-0 and still very much in the hunt for an SEC East title.

Yet somehow, Florida Gators head coach Dan Mullen doesn’t know who he is.

During his Monday press conference, Mullen revealed he doesn’t know who Robinson is, asking, “What number is he?”

Recruiting coordinator Vince Marrow quickly caught wind of this, so you know there’s a bulletin board somewhere at the football facilities with this on it.

As far as Florida’s top-pass catchers go, Robinson actually has more than double the catches of Xzavier Henderson (11) and almost double the receiving yards of Jacob Copeland (232).

So yeah, that’s a pretty big gaffe by Mullen. Here’s to hoping it provides an extra spark for the Wildcats as they look to beat Florida in Lexington for the first time since 1986.
