BEASLEY Sports WQAM-A/MIAMI host DAN SILEO's rant about the UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI HURRICANES' poor performance against KANSAS STATE has gone viral, with coverage by news organizations and websites across the country.
SILEO, a former 'CANES defensive lineman, got angry about the game, in which the team lost 52-13, and let fly with about three minutes of invective about "this bad football team" and the "disaster" of a game. "You are going to be held accountable!" SILEO exclaimed in a hoarse voice before warning himself to take a deep breath to avoid an aneurysm. "Son of a bitches, hit somebody!" SILEO yelled in the midst of criticizing the 'CANES defense. "You play for the UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI," SILEO concluded in a rage, "not frickin' FIU."
The segment ended up with coverage by NBC, CBS, USA TODAY, YAHOO! SPORTS, the HUFFINGTON POST, the NEW YORK POST, and several sports blogs nationwide.
