“Look, I don’t have anything against Florida State,” said Rubio, setting himself up to drive home the dagger. “I think there has to be a school where people that can’t get into Florida can go to college. And that’s why we have Florida State.”
Rubio has been receiving some heat for the comment on the Internet.

Which desperate Republican candidate will try to score a headline by holding an event at FSU in a Seminoles hat? On a semi-related note, Marco Rubio can handle a football, just in case you weren’t aware.
