It was not the competitive environment many expected in Miami Saturday afternoon for the Hurricanes' game against the Clemson Tigers.

With five minutes left in the game and Clemson leading 58-0, Miami fans had already left the stadium. They had already made it home to begin wondering what has happened to a once great college football program. But it wasn't just your typical fans expressing their displeasure, there were also some important figures speaking their minds.

After the game had clearly gotten out of hand, U.S. Congressman Carlos Curbelo, who is the U.S. Representative from Florida's 26th congressional district, had some strong words for the university.

The Tigers are working to run out the game clock, and it appears Miami fans are waiting for the clock to run out on head coach Al Golden.
