TAMPA (CBS Tampa) — Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., might not be getting any votes from Florida State University students and alums anytime soon.

The Republican presidential hopeful ripped the university during an interview with Iowa radio station KNXO 1460 AM last week, essentially calling it a reject school for those who can’t get into the University of Florida, where Rubio got his graduate degree.

“Look, I don’t have anything against Florida State,” Rubio told the station. “I think there has to be a school where people who can’t get into Florida can go to college. And so that’s why we have Florida State.”

Rubio, a Miami Dolphins fan, also took a shot at Tom Brady and the New England Patriots during the interview.

“Not only do I not like the Patriots, I’d like to see Brady suspended for 16 games because it hurts my Dolphins,” Rubio said. “So I probably won’t win New Hampshire because of that.”
