FSU’s Miami-raised running back Devonta Freeman harbors a grudge about not being more aggressively recruited by his hometown university, and showed his displeasure by flashing the “U” and “305″ hand signals after some of his rushes during Saturday’s 41-14 drubbing of the Canes. The gestures apparently did not sit well with former Miami defensive tackle Dan Sileo, who is currently* the host of a radio show in South Florida.

The tweets, which have since been deleted, referred to a theoretical rematch between the teams in the ACC Championship Game. Sileo, who was previously fired from a different radio station for making anti-semitic comments, later offered a nuanced apology:

*Currently, as in: Today, but maybe not tomorrow?
