### So what's the next step for UM and MLS? City manager Danny Alfonso said both sides will draw up a non-binding letter of intent in the coming days to build a stadium on the site next to Marlins Park.

Alfonso said negotiations will then begin between David Beckham's group and the city. One key point that must be resolved: how and how much Beckham's group will compensate the city for using what's primarily city land for the stadium.

Alfonso said Beckham's group reiterated today that it will pay for construction and also buy out a few private landowners who have property on the proposed stadium site.

As for UM's potential involvement, here's what we wrote in our last post a few hours ago in case you missed it (if you already read it, please scroll down to next item):

David Beckham’s group announced today that it is moving forward with plans for a 25,000-seat soccer stadium near Marlins Park and that UM is not involved “at this time” but that it is still talking to UM and open to more discussions in the future.

So why has the UM/Beckham joint stadium not materialized?

Stadium size appears to be the biggest obstacle.

According to a source close to MLS, when MLS and UM have spoken in recent weeks, MLS has made clear that a 25,000-seat stadium works best for MLS.

UM has responded that it must have at least 40,000 seats in any stadium that it plays in. MLS has hasn’t gone as far as to tell UM that 40,000 isn’t do-able but has been non-committal on the topic. And Friday’s announcement reinforces Beckham’s desire for 25,000 seats.

“As I’ve said before, there isn’t a stadium option I would see working for our program that would have less than 40,000 seats,” UM athletic director Blake James said Friday.

Asked his reaction to MLS saying it plans to build a stadium and is moving forward without UM for now, James said: “It’s an exciting day for soccer fans in the South Florida area. I congratulate them on moving forward. With that said, we are in a contract with Sun Life Stadium and are excited to open our season there on Sept. 5, in many ways in a brand new stadium that will enhance our fan experience.”

Would James have interest in continuing to talk to MLS about a joint MLS/UM football stadium?

“I will always keep all options open,” James said. “My preference is for the University of Miami to have the best home for football and right now that is Sun Life Stadium.”

Though an MLS source said Beckham’s group would like UM to contribute toward construction costs, a source said Beckham’s group has never made a specific financial request to UM or even given UM any specific proposal for a 40,000-seat stadium.

One possibility: Build a 25,000-seat stadium now with the potential to make it 40,000 later.

Even if MLS and UM could resolve the stadium size, UM’s lease with Sun Life is another significant obstacle.

UM has 17 years on the lease, and the Dolphins are of the mindset to ask UM for a financial buyout if they tried to bolt, according to a source with direct knowledge. The Dolphins were not pleased when former president Donna Shalala said she wants to leave Sun Life Stadium.

So even though UM and MLS have stayed in contact in recent weeks, talks have not progressed to the stage of negotiations.

Beckham’s group hopes to be playing here in 2018.

More Barry:

### So just how good is the group of 22 UM football oral commitments for 2016?

Some say it’s outstanding; others say UM reached on a few players. Rivals.com and ESPN both rank UM’s class fifth nationally.

“It’s really good; and remember, a lot of Internet sites will drop a kid that commits early because they can’t make money off committed kids,” longtime recruiting analyst Tom Lemming said.

“[Receiver] Sam Bruce is outstanding. Jack Allison is the best quarterback in the state. Joseph Jackson looks like he will become an All-American at defensive end; he already looks like he belongs in the NFL.

"Tyler Byrd can be an outstanding safety. Dionte Mullins, Amir Rasul and Ahmmon Richards are great athletes, can play both ways. Shaquille Quarterman reminds me of linebackers Miami had 20 years ago; a real thumper who can play right away. Miami would be top 10-15 even if they don’t sign anyone else.”

The risk, of course, is how many will de-commit before National Signing Day.

His Royal Dudeness

Not so sure about the unis, I need to see more, the stadium on the other hand looks like it's going to be pretty nice.

USAFCane

Not one who get's inside information but I recently met someone close to Gulliver where we have 3 oral commits I believe. Individual said Jackson has highest upside and could be special. All 3 (names escape me but Mullins is one) are firm to Miami but that has not deterred other schools and Crimson Tide was mentioned.

this is a terrible shame. Attacks like this will increase. Prepare yourselves.

His Royal Dudeness

^^^ by staying away from gun free zones? Honestly, the company I am working for has a no gun policy, but me carrying does not violate any city, state of federal laws, so I carry. They can fire me after I protect myself from criminals. I'd rather be fired than dead.

CaneRock

A GFZ is just as silly as a Crazy Free Zone.

His Royal Dudeness

^^^ my whole thing with a GFZ is that if you're telling me that I have to give up my right to a firearm, then you have a certain obligation to ensure my safety by having an armed police officer present.

CaneRock

^^^^^^^^^^ No doubt.

Go Canes

Gun free zones are endorsed by people who genuinely are clueless.

I don't own a gun and have never fired a hand gun. Even I know the idea is ridiculous.

Watching now, Kaaya was a cerebral assassin 1st half of the game

His Royal Dudeness

^^^ kid is the real deal.

His Royal Dudeness

That's the side of Coley that makes me optimistic, guy finds stud players. Both coordinators need to take giant leaps forward. So does Al, wasting timeouts and sloppy ST. Hopefully in 47 days they have things right.

His Royal Dudeness

16-0. How did we lose this game?

His Royal Dudeness

They've been blitzing the hell out of Winston and he's still been putting it in their hands. They've dropped a lot.

Absolutely dominating the Seminoles.

Posted by: The Dude | July 18, 2015 at 07:18 PM

Exactly!

His Royal Dudeness

Why can't anyone hold on to the ball?

86Cane

Clearly it was KYCane's fault?

CaneRock

TD...yeah, we left too many plays (and balls) on the field that night. But Dobard's fumble was bigger than Clive's fumble...that was a 6 to 10 point swing right there.

CaneRock

But contrary to popular belief, seemed to me that we stayed aggressive in the 2nd half. Looks like FSU just did a good job of adjusting to our aggressiveness.

His Royal Dudeness

We definitely got tired also CR.

Go Canes

Like so many games last year, a second half play or two made changes our our outcome.

We will make those plays this year.

His Royal Dudeness

^^^ it shouldn't have come down to one or two plays against some teams. Hopefully Kaaya's O is one of the best, and the new 1 gap D creates a better D. Need better ST too.

His Royal Dudeness

That delay run to Yearby was there. Just got tripped up.

His Royal Dudeness

And that Ramsey is a playmaker.

CaneRock

It wasn't just the 2nd half. In the Louisville & Nebraska games, Kaaya threw 2 1st half picks, that otherwise would've put us in scoring position. If you're gonna pull out wins in tights games, EVERY PLAY IS IMPORTANT.

CaneRock

And hows about we get some defensive scores, there's more ways to score on defense, than on offense.

KYcane

Clearly it was KYCane's fault?

Posted by: 86Cane | July 18, 2015 at 08:19 PM

Well that's contrary to the "It's all Al's fault" theory.

86Cane

No, what I was trying to say is that:

AL + KY = losses.

That is all.

And I think they're awesome. A mix of old school with new style. Definitely a nice base for special uniforms to play off of, we definitely need a black uni. Only white helmets though.

There is also a nice photo gallery of Ryan Tannehill's wife at the end of the uniform gallery.

Neither, it's back to the basics. Take a look at the new UCLA uniforms. They have the diagonal strips as well. I believe it has to do with the TechFit. I really like them. You were not really see those diagonal lines on Saturdays!

Terrance Sullivan

I love the Uniforms.

His Royal Dudeness

I like the new unis. I feel like we should have them as a base, then have a couple games a year where we do some exotic things, like black unis or colored helmets (and what not). Cleats HAVE to be black. And we need the Sean Taylor amber/gold visors.

SwooshCane

Sad day in the 305. Canes and Nike grew up together. Understand the economics of the move but Canes should've stuck with Nike.

Watched Sam Bruce at the Opening. His quickness is even more impressive in person. Hope we hold on to him for '16.

His Royal Dudeness

Why do people care about a shoe brand? I'm afraid I don't understand this at all.

TSully,

I hear that! My jersey's when I was a kid (and still have) were Steve Walsh, Lamar Thomas, Rusty Mederias/Jerome Brown (no name on back) and yes, I have one that everyone will respect...

If the Canes underachieve next season, it's not going to be because of the uniforms or the stadium. That much I know.

Come to think of it, the same applies if they exceed expectations.

Ariz:

More coming in The Work, but I am told that Joseph Yearby has not been with the team since early June. Not returning calls from teammates

2:17pm - 19 Jul 15

CaneRock

The Work - July 19th

**There is talk that Joseph Yearby has not been with the team recently and people within the program are hesitant to comment on the situation. I am told that Yearby has not been around since the first week of June and is not returning messages from his teammates. Just a strange sitation. Yearby was suspended for the spring game, but I do not believe this is connected to that. I am working on gathering more information on the topic, but my guess is that he will be back shortly. I repeat, I would be very surprised if he is not back with the team by the start of camp.

**Here is some news that is intriguing in my opinion…I spoke to a local high school coach who recently had a conversation with Mark D’Onofrio. This coach told me that D’Onofrio plans on utilizing Deon Bush as a corner at times this season in an effort to get the most talented defensive backs on the field. Coming out of high school, I was a huge fan of Bush as a corner and thought that was potentially his money position for the NFL due to his unique size/speed/physicality combination at the position. Bush has obviously shown flashes of his ability at safety in his first three seasons, but this could be something that I believe could benefit the defense…especially if D’Onofrio employs a more aggressive approach this season (I’ll believe it when I see it).

**One player that has struggled to make as big of an impact as some expected when he enrolled early at Miami is LB Juwon Young. Young has all of the physical tools to be very good, but just has not yet figured out the mental side of the game. As of now, it is unlikely that he sees many snaps this season. Terry McCray is in a similar spot as well.

Hawaii you the man! Meaderis and Rohan my favs of all time and ST26....Rusty never quit gave it all....pound for pound Rohan hardest hitter ever! Saw him hit a guy at VT that RL52 was trying to tackle....they helped VT back and Ray off. RM2 knocked dogshit out of both.

ST26 the man among boys especially the FSU game in rain. Best ever....I always tell my son he ain't no Redskin....Cane only should have been a Raider!

Not big on Yearby not that impressed with him or Gus. Like Walton! Play the frosh!

Tracy Howard: So what has changed inside UM? “This year, guys are holding others accountable,” Howard said. “When the young guys come in, that’s all they know now. Nobody is slacking off. They have to follow. They don’t have a choice. If you don’t like it, you could leave.”


Really REALLY hope this is the current culture. Man, does that kind of statement take me back to the old Canes days.

Couldn't agree more!!!!!

Go Canes

I'm not into politics, but I must say it's impossible do define the current administration's results as nothing short of catastrophically bad.

I don't know if the Republicans have any legitimate answers. Unfortunately there is no middle ground left in this country, with the extremes of the left and right growing more preposterous by the day.

All I know is as a business person, it's easy to see this country heading down the death spiral so many talk about here.

When the day comes when you can't pay your debts, where you're entitlements far exceed what can actually be paid for by the remaining taxpayers, the end is truly in sight.

On a brighter note, Darrion Owens appears to be kicking ass. So we've got that going for us:

http://caneswatch.blog.palmbeachpost.com/2015/07/19/darrion-owens-rise-and-10-pre-camp-thoughts-on-the-hurricanes/

His Royal Dudeness

^^^ when billion dollar corporations don't pay taxes, when politicians represent corporate interests rather than the people, when welfare cowboys become beacons of right wing ideology, when prisons are for profit enterprises designed to incarcerate more and more people, when a president can just invade a country and put it on a credit card, when owners of sports franchises can hold cities hostage over stadiums........

His Royal Dudeness

This country is in trouble because corporations have taken it over and use it to flip a buck. It's why both parties support taking away some Constitutional right and why at the end of the day, they're really the same thing. Here's to the 2016 election! May it go to the highest bidder!

I liken some of the issues people in this country froth at the mouth about to sitting at dinner as the Titanic strikes the iceberg and complaining about your steak being undercooked.

We have gigantic problems here, number one being the massive overspending being done by our government.

The burden being placed on small business owners today is disgraceful, when considering the obscene waste and blatant wealth distribution going on.

Without mom and pop businesses, there will be no jobs. We are headed further in that direction daily, as the average business owner is being squeezed to death by taxes, skyrocketing health costs from that disaster of a health plan this president rammed down out throats and massive regulation that does nothing but choke growth.

And yet the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. We need to re-analyze what we value work as in this country. What would help small business owners is more poor people having money to spend at their businesses. But the welfare system in America is for lack of a better word whack. It is designed to keep people poor. If you get $400 food stamp benefits because you make under $1000 per month, and next month you make $1001, you don't get $399 in food stamps, you get $0. Where's the incentive to work, where's the ability to get out of the system? A raise could ruin you, more hours could hurt you badly.

"Blatant wealth redistribution" isn't exlusive to one party.
