When the final seconds ticked off the clock Saturday afternoon and the Miami Hurricanes upset the Florida Gators you had to know that a lot of folks would have a lot of things to say. Gator fans probably had a lot of excuses (turnover anyone?). Anti-Florida/SEC fans have taken to message boards to express their happiness at the outcome.

The Rock has been pretty up front about his love and admiration for 'The U.' Not too long ago they showed him some love by naming the team's locker room after him.

Huge win vs UF. Proud of my HURRICANE players, coach Golden & staff. One step at a time.. #KeepBringinIt #TheU pic.twitter.com/EPmj9vJuOW
