I love how people have turned PC into a bad word like LIBERAL. Conservatives proudly taunt their brand while liberals avoid been called that and coined a new word, 'PROGRESSIVES.' If not for PC we would all be in arms with each other. PC only means treat other people the way u want to be treated. This is the dilemma we have. Less than 1% of muslims engage in extremist terrorist act. Less than 1% of Christian want to kill other people because they are pro-choice. The problem is that those of you that anti-PC are ready to condemn all muslims because of the acts of the few lunatics of them. I would like to point out that muslims are the most targeted in this terror war. I however do agree with you that we will need to enlist the help of muslims in this war. Those that know what some lunatics are planning need to help. But this exactly y we need to embrace the Muslim community, which thankfully has been our policy B.T (before trump). And it has been working. The people that would cause us arms are not going to be imported from the Middle East. They would be citizens, like is the case in Europe. How we treat muslims, and our rhetoric will go a long way into making sure that Arabic boy, born & growing up in Detroit will see himself as part of the American dream, not an ostracized youth that could fall easy prey to the ideology of ISIS & similar groups that are enemy of humanity. The problem Europe has is totally different from America. This is the land dreams coming true. England is the most progressive country in Europe but still doesn't provide the economic & social opportunities that the US does. So it still leaves a crack for lunatic extremists to prey on idle Arabic-English kids. We want a nation that turns a kid by the name of Khaled into super star DJ not a mis-lead, suicide vest wearing sociopath. We've come too far to fall back now. Even Europeans that hit the hardest are sticking to principles.

Great discussion y'all. Like I said, it doesn't have to be only sports. Some well informed and brilliant minds on here. And it's good to hear your points of views.

I heard that we r underdogs in the FSU game. I don't buy that. FSU came to HRS last year & beat us with a first time starter @ QB. Our defense is elite this year. We have bad ass talent at WR, RB, and a good tight end. Y can't we go in there and beat them with a first year starter at QB as well? We need to start thinking like canes again.

Everyone is quick to unload on tiger. Be careful when u throw the word demon around. Cheating and sex is a common male vice and is not worthy of comment. He was on meds for his back. For me, he simply made a mistake. U can talk about him been at fault for been in his car while under the influence. I make an exception that it wasn't alcohol that he was on. The only need for alcohol is for it's entertainment value. The guy took medicine for an ailment that is the sole cause for the destroying his golf carrier. Tiger is a businessman and a public figure. He probably has more meetings before 12pm than most of us have in a month. Maybe it was a day where he couldn't afford to miss any meeting. And he also had to take his drugs in a timely manner. Maybe both time constraints intersected and he cheated. Don't make him a villain when he's clearly not one.

Terrence, I definitely agree with u that insults and aggression has no place in any discussion, no matter the content. I have been guilty of these. But every single time it's a response to insults hauled at me first. Blog on canes.

While I understand the sentiments of those that aspire for a politics free blog. I do think it's someone hypocritical though. Don't get me wrong, I accept that this is a sport blog and should be so the majority of the time. But I do believe it already is that the majority of the time. This blog has become an haven for canes fans. I've witnessed an assortment of topics been discussed; from fishing, people's kids, to real estate. I like talking about real estate, not so much about about fishing but I'm sure it's fun. No one ever got heckled down when the discussion are any of those other topics. The issues going on in our country today and indeed around the world r unpresidented. It is an accurate reflection of these times if a little politics creeps in between our discussion of our beloved canes once in a while. Granted, the current trend has been going for 2 days. But it is still only a drop compared with our primary discussion which is the MIGHTY CANES athletics program.

Tony, I don't dislike conservatives. Maybe I'm just more of a fan of Regan/bush like conservatives. And remember, Lincoln was a conservative. But let's be honest, Trump is not a conservative in any way. He actually preaches more liberal views and I still hate his guts. Give me the governor of Ohio state and then we r talking about a conservative. Am I a liberal, u r damn right I am. But I recognize the need for a healthy Democrat & Republican party to keep the nation strong,Not a Republican party that even Fox news is scared of.

hassan, a 100 likes for your last post. your knowledge of the topic shows. the arab situation is more complex than is reported and it goes back in history. Christian-muslim conflict goes far back, from the days of the Templar vs Assassin's creed, the crusades and other historical accounts. and contrary to what westerners think of arabs as barbaric, history as proven that arab nations and leaders have been as progressive as westerners at certain points in history. and also, arabs have been a worse offender in the area of race against Africans/blacks than westerners have been. that's why it upsets me when some African Americans sees it as the 'black religion' or when Africans kiss up to mecca. islam and Christianity are from the same area and are from the same people. neither were from the west. I just don't care much for the hypocrisy of arabs. they are not good to my kind. and they can go to hell.

A fool that does not understand the history of American involvement in the Middle East. They just didn't wake up and just stated hating us. The CIA HAS BEEN HEAVILY INVOLVED IN REGIME CHANGE IN ANY COUNTRIES for a long time. There r a lot of countries that hate this. It is worse in the Middle East because of oil and perhaps racism. But for me, there is another angle, I couldn't give a rats ass about the Arabic world plight. They can all eat sheet and die. Because the way they treat black people in their countries is worse than dirt. They r the raciest of racists. They more or less still look at their black populace like slaves. So let trump have them all.

U r a focking nincompoop sh$tcane. U r incapable of critical thinking or reasoning.America is a great country and is only great today by critical and progressive thinkers that have moved the country forward. If we still adire to the same standard that u aspouse, we will still be leaving in the 30s. And your moronic argument that we went there to fight them and keep them there so they don't come here is an unintelligible babble by a fool who is drinking a kool aid that even Dick Chaney is not even making anymore. How did that work out for u? Good job in keeping them over there. U all went there and managed to morph al qeida into isis. Good job of 'keeping them over there.' And from what I remember, bush said they went there in search of imaginary chemicals. They actually only went for the oil. U r a sorry waste of life.

I do not believe that muslims are responsible for proving the innocence of their religion to others. It's a simple point & fact that there r bad seed in every group and that sect of bad seeds do not speak for the group. And what that sect preaches is a false hood and is not the doctrine that group preaches. Look, this problem didn't just come out of thin air. The origin of American involvement dates back to the 70s. The Lebanon conflict was over Middle East oil. Middle easterners have grown up watching their friends & relatives getting killed by Americans or American influenced group or American weapons. Hatred for America has grown over decades. Don't pretend. That is the real cause of the troubles.

I am a Christian and have been one all my life. Half my family are Muslim. And half my father's country are muslims. The Quran does not preach for its followers to plant IEDs. Prophet Mohamed is against those that take the life of another just as much as the Bible.

1meg, that's one take on it, but realizehow fast mama duke pulled back. That's because she acknowledged that it was wrong of her to put it out there like that. The truth is, it's one thing if it's a student athlete that put us on blast, which u would understand. But if an adult that should protect the program does it, its wreckless. IJS

And soup, I don't believe I'm a contrarian. I have been on different side of many arguments on here. I've agreed with u on many points. But not that u need me to. I do think that topic was a very interesting one for cane fans. But canes fans forget. Both players were blamed for different difficencies. If u all forgot, it was dukes fumbling the ball.

Hickcane, they let u out of the asylum already? U took that many words to say nothing. Well I guess empty barrels do make the most noise. Don't u have a male first cousin to molest instead of answering my post. Surely u know u r meant to look past my post. 'In my neck of the woods?' I'm sorry, I actually graduated from UM.

Ok! So I just logged on after a few days. My girlfriend visiting from Korea and all & keeping me occupied. I went back 3 topics and read the one about duke or kayaa. I see what u r trying to do there soup but it doesn't support your arguement however. If both set records at the university of miami and neither of them could carry a team on their shoulders, what impetus do I have to pick one over the other. The reason I would have for picking one will not be a football reason then. I personally will take Kayaa because his mother didn't cause a mini drama by leaking what the students were saying behind closed doors. And let's face it, duke had a attitude like he was god's gift to the canes. But believe me, if I thought he was clear cut better than Kayaa on the field, I would have picked him, as an answer to your question.
