There was one reported burglary during Winter Break, a decline from years past, said Vernon Thompson, investigations and crime prevention commander for the Syracuse University Department of Public Safety. Thompson said he thinks safety education tips and increased patrols are the main reasons why there was a decline in the number of breakingand-entering incidents.

A female Syracuse University student was punched and kicked in the head during a robbery early Sunday morning on Ostrom Avenue, according to a Syracuse Police Department news release. A male suspect approached two female students at about 2:20 a.m. on the 300 block of Ostrom Avenue and threatened them with a gun, though it was never shown, according to the release. He eventually made off with one of the victims’ purses and fled toward Thornden Park. One student’s lip was hurt during the robbery, according to the release. The suspect was described as black, 5 feet 10 inches tall and was last seen wearing a hooded sweatshirt and black ski mask, according to the release.

After lifetime of learning, Shafer ready to apply lessons By Chris Iseman
cott Shafer learned it in his teaching methodology classes at Baldwin-Wallace College in the inner city of Akron, Ohio,
and on an Indian reservation in Arizona. He watched it every time his father hugged his hulking Riverside High School football players, tears streaming down their faces, on senior day.
All of it defined Shafer’s understanding of football, coaching, and perhaps more importantly, teaching. It led him to a life as a football coach, where for the last 22 years he’s applied a
lifetime of learning and experiences. Shafer, Syracuse’s newest head coach, is stepping into a role he started preparing for decades ago. He exudes passion for the

Shafer the right coach to keep Syracuse’s momentum moving forward
or the last four years, Scott Shafer stuck to a simple approach. He was here to lead the Syracuse defense, here to do his job as he had at his previous seven coaching stops. So he did – he coached his players and he worked with the Orange coaching staff to resurrect a once-proud football
that’s respect program. He didn’t concern himself with much else.
Simple turned out to be effective. Shafer was introduced as Syracuse’s head coach Friday, replacing Doug Marrone after serving as defensive coordinator for four years. Marrone’s departure earlier this month for the Buffalo Bills comes at a crucial time for Syracuse, as it loses
many of its top playmakers just as it prepares to make the jump to the Atlantic Coast Conference. Shafer is the right man for the job. The right man to guide the team through the transition. “I felt in my heart that this

Globe put on display in Heroy lobby By Natsumi Ajisaka STAFF WRITER
After a long journey last semester, a giant globe made its way to Syracuse before showing up, almost overnight, above the doorway of the Heroy Geology Building. The inflatable Earth, which is 10 feet in diameter, is the Department of Earth Sciences’ new icon. It is part of the department’s larger effort to upgrade the look of its teaching spaces, said Jeffrey Karson, chair of the earth sciences department, who was behind the idea of installing a globe. “It’s meant to better reflect the teaching that’s going on in Heroy,” Karson said. “As you can see, the building is a little non-descript, almost indistinguishable from the Physics Building.” The original plan was to suspend the globe from the ceiling in a dramatic fashion while not disturbing

CNY Regional Council receives $93.7 million Band raises By Erin Kelly ASST. COPY EDITOR
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo awarded $93.7 million to the Central New York Regional Economic Development Councils for being a top performer among New York’s 10 regional councils. Cuomo created these councils in 2011 to oversee economic development with a performance-driven approach. Created to work as a contest, the program is designed to jumpstart the economy and create a wave of job growth for New York state, according to a Dec. 19 SU News release. The CNY-REDC is co-chaired by Syracuse University Chancellor Nancy Cantor, according to the release. In 2011, Central New York earned a “Best Plan” designation and was gifted $103.7 million as a top economic performer. This year Cantor, along with co-chair Robert Simpson, president of CenterState Corporation for Economic Opportunity, has brought a number of new projects to the Syracuse city area, according to the release. These projects include a renovation of Syracuse Stage, the creation of a rainwater harvesting-and-reuse system for the Carrier Dome, added improvements to the Connective Corridor Facade Improvement Pro-

gram, a renovated Westside warehouse and numerous other projects in and around the area, according to the CNY-REDC’s website. But any benefits the university will see as a result of Cantor’s chair position are purely coincidental and were not caused by her job with the CNY-REDC, said Kevin Quinn, senior vice president for public affairs at SU. “The governor’s office has very specific rules that they need to follow,” Quinn said. “The people in the chair position need to refuse their own personal connections and interests. All projects that are connected to the city of Syracuse and its university have been approved by a board prior to Cantor’s involvement.” The ultimate goal of these projects is to put the decision-making in the hands of the local economy, he said. The focus is on regional development that supports sustainability, arts and culture in the Central New
York area, tourism and businesses that will help bring in new exports, Quinn said. All of these developments will both directly and indirectly benefit the university, he said. Students will see the investments being put to use through student involvement in the projects. There will be engineering students involved in the Save the Rain project with the Dome, renovation of the Westside warehouse and Connective Corridor, Quinn said. The
benefits include real world experience and allowing students to work with professionals. The projects can also help SU attract more students, although that is not the only goal, he said. “I think a successful city of Syracuse seeing economic growth will attract students, but hopefully more than just students will be attracted to the area,” he said. While the focus of these economic development projects is not on SU, the university will see and feel the upcoming benefits within the next few years. “To have a strong university, we need a strong city and a strong community,” Quinn said. “The various programs are put into place to boost the entire area in a positive direction.”
CHECKING OUT THE COMPETITION
The North Country Regional Council also received $90.2 million as a top performer. Their projects include the creation of an Adirondacks Park Recreation Web Portal to support tourism and recreation within the Adirondacks Park, enhancement of the broadband connectivity in Hamilton County, an addition to the Natural History Museum of the Adirondacks and the construction of housing for families and military personnel in Jefferson County. The Finger Lakes, Mid-Hudson and Southern Tier Regional Councils were named Best Plan Awardees, respectively receiving $96.2 million, $92.8 million and $91.1 million,according to a Dec. 19 press release from Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office.
funds for uniforms
By Lakota Sky Gambill CONTRIBUTING WRITER
The Syracuse University Marching Band is ready to hang up its uniforms. The band started a fundraising campaign to replace its 15-year-old uniforms. The campaign is called “A New Look for a New Era,” referring to SU’s entrance into the Atlantic Coast Conference next year, according to a Dec. 17 SU News release. The goal of the campaign is to raise $150,000 by Jan. 31. The Harry T. Mangurian Jr. Foundation kicked off the campaign with a challenge gift of $75,000, facilitated by College of Visual and Performing Arts Advisory Council member Terry Skuse, according to the release. Though the price of the new uniforms may be high, it will be worth it, said Patrick Jones, director of the Setnor School of Music, in an email. “Our goal is to create a look that will really reflect the heritage, quality and dynamism of SU,” he said. “This is important as the band will now represent SU to millions of new

Violence against women affects global communities from India to America
ast December, a young woman was mercilessly gang-raped by six men while trying to catch a bus home in New Delhi, India. She died 10 days after the attack. Much of the discourse that has been circulating within the media about this incident focuses on how India has a rape problem and then blaming this problem on Indian culture. Certain attitudes found within Indian society toward women, like blaming women for being raped and justifying male anger, need to be addressed. At the same time, we cannot continue to demean Indian culture and hold it solely responsible for sexual violence. According to research data, a woman is raped every 22 minutes in India. The National Crime Records Bureau reported 24,206 cases of rape in 2011. The organization indicated that out of the cases that made it to court, only 26 percent resulted in convictions. For many Indians, the New Delhi rape was the final straw. After news of this violent rape
R AHIMON NASA
i am woman, hear me roar broke, thousands of people all around India have participated in mass demonstrations calling for an end to rape culture and holding rapists responsible for their crimes. The grossly violent nature of the New Delhi rape not only led to outcry within India, but from the world as well. While the media has been focusing on criticizing Indian culture, we need to remember that India is not the only country where sexual violence occurs. In the United States, data collected by the U.S. Department of Justice revealed an average 207,754 victims of rape and sexual
assault each year, while the FBI revealed that a mere 24 percent of those reports resulted in arrests. Though it’s difficult to compare these statistics between India and the United Station when so many different factors, such as unreported cases, affect these numbers, they do show that we have a serious problem ourselves. Yet it’s convenient to focus on how this culture of rape is perpetuated within Indian society, with its densely populated slums and rigid social systems, while we ignore how we are responsible for perpetuating a culture of rape within our own society by not properly holding people responsible for their crimes. Otherwise, a group of high school football players from Steubenville, Ohio would never believe it was okay to document themselves on social media sexually assaulting an unconscious teenage girl, or believe they could get away with it because they are good at throwing a ball around. Let’s not forget the account published last
fall in the Amherst College campus newspaper by a former student of the insensitive response she received from school administrators after reporting she was raped. A school sexual assault counselor told her it wasn’t worth it to press charges against her attacker and if she was sure it was even rape. I can only imagine the sense of hopelessness she and others subjected to sexual violence feel when they are confronted with the reality that their tormentor may get away with what he has done. If India has a misogynistic society, then I’m not sure what I can say about our own society when they are both alike in so many ways. However, we can and need to do better than point fingers. Sexual violence against women is not inherent to only certain parts of the world, it’s a global human rights issue. Rahimon Nasa is a sophomore magazine journalism and international relations major.

virtually real ing on your disposition. One-seventh of the world’s population are now users on Facebook, and the line between man and machine has grown ever thinner as roughly six billion people now carry a cell phone, of which nearly two billion are smartphones. In an age made, molded and mediated by machines, it is now more important than ever to define and reclaim our humanity. We’re beginning to understand our relationship with technology as not just a means to an end but a complete submersion into a way of life that has given us the means to reach thousands of people while simultaneously denying us substantive human connections. We can be supplemented with prosthetic limbs, synthetic skin, artificial hearts and even implanted with chips to make up for our biological weaknesses. Now that biotechnology has helped us overcome the obstacles that once stood in the way of our survival, it’s no longer possible to define our species as completely organic.
The fusion between man and machine has become so commonplace that transhumanism is now a cultural norm rather than a science fiction fantasy. We’re undergoing an evolution within our species that has changed the way we live, work and interact with each other on a daily basis so significantly that our identities have become limited to our data streams. The philosopher Immanuel Kant defined a human being by three criteria. The first was a technical disposition for manipulating things. The second was pragmatic desire to use other things and human beings for one’s own purposes. We see these first two criteria being leveraged constantly in the digital age as we tinker with our gadgets and hackers continually exploit the most vulnerable part of any operations system, the human link, through tricks of social engineering. Thus, this third criterion becomes the most important because it is the most distinctly human— our desire for morality and the compassion that urges us to seek out ideals like freedom, justice and equality for all people. Morality in particular is not something that can be programmed, as even in the human world we are perpetually shifting our stances on issues as new facts and circumstances become apparent.
Joseph Weizenbaum, the German author and Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor, once said that he felt the only jobs a robot shouldn’t be allowed to do are those that require man’s unique talents for respect and care, such as customer service representatives, psychiatrists and judges. Yet we’ve already seen automated voice recordings take over the bulk of telephonic customer service interactions, much to the annoyance of human customers, and there is some credence to the fear that we are ushering in our own extinction. But above all, the trait that separates us most from our beloved machines is our endless capacity for creativity and imagination. Although engineers are currently working on robots that can create abstract works of art and have higher states of consciousness, our technology will always be limited by how far we can stretch our own imaginations. It’s a brave new world out there and although we have no choice but to continue on the path of progress toward an increasingly technodependent culture, we must also remember not to treat each other solely as systems of data but the intelligent, intuitive and imaginative creatures that we are.

Now, he has swapped that dream for another: rejoining the NFL as the Buffalo Bills head coach.

Students offered free service to pursue employment with better social media image By Charlotte Stockdale CONTRIBUTING WRITER
By casting its customers in a better light in their online profiles, BrandYourself aids Syracuse University students seeking employment. BrandYourself is a service that promotes flattering information about its customers to the first pages of search engines and hides negative information. The creators of the website, SU alumni Pete Kistler, Patrick Ambron and Evan McGowanWatson, partnered with SU to give students free access to the service so they can clean up their online presence, according to an Associated Press article published Dec. 26. Ashley Lawton, a senior psychology major, said she didn’t know the BrandYourself service was being offered to SU students, and that she
would be interested in looking into the service and taking advantage of it. “You can tell a lot about a person by their online appearance, like their Facebook photos, and those are what employers look at,” Lawton said. “I’m not sure that people should just rely on BrandYourself and keep posting drinking pictures online, but I’m sure the service can help significantly.” Mike Cahill, director of Career Services, said BrandYourself is a beneficial service that he urges students to take advantage of, even if it requires waiting to make an appointment. He added that Career Services promotes the website because it can help manage students’ online presence. “The Internet is an easy tool for employers to find out more about someone they’re consider-

ing,” Cahill said. “Besides, BrandYourself is a service that many people are paying for, and the university has paid for all its students to use it, so why not?” William Ward, a social media professor in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, said he believes BrandYourself is a great
product and is proud of what its creators are providing to the university. “Syracuse is all about homegrown success,” he said. “It’s the spirit of Syracuse. Alums are always giving back to the school and the students.” Ward said that while the service is helpful, students should not rely solely on the tool. He said it is important for students to take social media classes and learn how to use them responsibly. Ward warns all of his students that they can have “digital skeletons” hiding in their closets if people do not take social media outlets seriously. “Employers understand that we are human: We all get angry, and some of us have tendencies to vent online,” Ward said. “But employers are searching for those who are responsible, smart and mature enough to control themselves online.” email@example.com

Euclid Avenue to find it had been burglarized. Although DPS did not issue a public safety notice, Thompson said students have been reminded of tips to keep their homes safe in past bulletins and email blasts. “A lot of the notices are for public knowledge for crime prevention tips,” Thompson said. Some of the crime prevention tips include: making sure all windows and doors are shut and locked, closing blinds, stopping mail delivery and putting expensive items on an upper level so they are out of sight. “Most of the time with burglars and common thieves, they want to be able to come in, steal something and leave without being seen,” Thompson said. Thompson also said DPS officers are recommending a new crime prevention technique. Stu-

dents are told to take pictures or keep a notebook of the serial numbers of items. Thompson said serial numbers are unique identifiers that can be used to connect stolen property back to an owner. Ben Tupper, a Syracuse landlord, said he did his best to make his homes look occupied during the break. He said he drove up and down the driveways a couple of times and walked to and from the front doors to show there was foot traffic. “We always re-evaluate and critique what worked and what didn’t work,” Thompson said. “Once we put the data in, we will see what worked and what didn’t work and prepare for Spring Break.” Thompson and DPS Chief Tony Callisto said students are still returning to campus, so there is a possibility that some additional incidents will be reported.

SUNY-ESF students lead proposal to salvage local houses By Shannon Hazlitt STAFF WRITER
or SUNY-ESF students like Dylan Sorensen, the cheapest way to take down old buildings is not necessarily the best way. Sorensen, a senior environmental science major at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry who is a staff writer for The Daily Orange, is one of several ESF students who helped plan a more environmental way to remove houses to make room for ESF’s new Academic Research Building. He and his classmates took a special topic course in 2010 in which they proposed salvaging valuable materials from 11 houses dating back to the 1920s and 30s that once stood across from Centennial Hall, he said. “It hadn’t occurred to me that you could just recycle these houses,” Sorensen said, “I figured that you couldn’t reuse wood floors because nobody would want regraded wood, but it seems there is a very strong market for it.” ReUse Action, based out of Buffalo, carried out the physical deconstruction and the dispersal of materials, said Mike Gainer, the president of the organization. The entire project cost about $10,000 per house, Gainer said. One of the main reasons establishments are usually demolished is because of the high cost of deconstruction. The cost of disposal can be as low as $25 in Syracuse, while the cost of deconstruction is higher due to labor costs, he said. Contractors salvaged materials from the
houses from October until midDecember, said Paul Crovella, a professor in the Department of Sustainable Construction Management and Engineering at ESF who taught the class that created the proposal. The contractors used a process called deconstruction, which involves recovering reusable material from buildings and finding new uses for it, Crovella said. As a result of deconstruction, 65 percent of the houses were diverted from landfills, Crovella said. This included structural elements of the home that could be recycled, like copper and wood, as well as items that could be reused right away, like stained-glass windows and cabinets. Crovella started the course in response to student concern about the way 18 other houses were removed by the ESF administration to make room for new dorms in 2010, he said. Although many materials inside these houses, such as cabinets and lights, were donated to the Syracuse Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore program, he said. The major structural ele-
illustration by micah benson | art director ments of the houses were demolished. Crovella said he was aware that ESF was planning on removing even more houses, so he quickly sent out an email announcing that he was starting the deconstruction planning class. ESF administration was open to the idea after hearing the class’ research proposal, he said. Students were involved with many aspects of the proposal, Crovella said. He gave the example of determining how to safely recycle materials that contained lead paint, which was used during the era in which the houses were built. Marc Delaney, a senior sustainable construction management engineering major, ran tests to determine the different levels of lead for both
deconstructed and demolished properties. “They know how much lead would get into the soil from demolishing, but nobody really knows how much would get into the soil from deconstruction yet,” Delaney said. “That was my role.” The results showed there was less lead near houses that were deconstructed, he said. Crovella said he thinks students in the class learned more than just the environmental benefits of deconstruction. Said Crovella: “The real skill I think that all the students developed was a more holistic way of looking at problems.” firstname.lastname@example.org

the ceiling, Karson said. Instead, the inflatable planet now looms over students as they enter the building. Its spot above the entrance is made possible by a custom base designed by building manager Michael Cheatham. The placement allows for “terrific visibility,” said Karson, adding the department has received emails from people “very excited” about the globe — especially at night. Imprinted with a massive NASA mosaic photograph of Earth, the globe rotates on the same axial tilt as the Earth itself. The internally illuminated model symbolizes a far-reachingyet-still-mysterious field of study, one currently undergoing rapid evolution, said Cathryn Newton, professor and dean emerita of earth sciences.
“Never have we been learning so much. We are participating in a massive global experiment as people are trying to understand how the Earth works.” Cathryn Newton
PROFESSOR AND DEAN EMERITA OF EARTH SCIENCES
The globe also highlights what Newton called an extensive history of research at the university, and makes Heroy distinct from the Physics Building. Newton first saw the globe while driving back to campus from a research trip at night. She said she was “thunderstruck” by the sight of it. The globe, Newton said, reminded her of the first image of Earth coming over the moon. “It was a powerful symbol about our dynamic Earth and why it matters,” she said. “I don’t feel that many people understand this Earth too well.” Her colleagues in the department find the globe compelling and riveting, Newton said, and she personally enjoys watching people suddenly notice the globe, stopping to stand and stare. The globe has inspired ideas for more plans. Karson said he would like to install a Jumbotron screen, which would be a giant tiled display of earth science activity. Calling the globe a “public icon,” Newton said it draws attention to the Earth as a dynamic system. The timing of the globe’s installation, she said, could not be better. “Never have we been learning so much,” she said. “We are participating in a massive global experiment as people are trying to understand how the Earth works.” email@example.com
HISTORY OF HEROY HALL Heroy Hall was built in 1972 at a cost of $2.9 million. The building originally housed laboratories, offices, storage rooms and a 200-seat lecture hall. It also included a glass-enclosed staircase from the lobby to the fourth floor that served as a green house for trees. The ground floor featured a wet tank for water wave experiments. The building began multi-year renovations in 2010, as new research equipment requiring upgrades in electrical power, water and drainage and cooling systems had strained the building’s utilities, according to the Syracuse University website.

New beginnings After the failure of 2012 apocalypse, 2013 will be a way to start anew and learn from mistakes of last year.
ith the possibility of Armageddon a perpetual concern throughout 2012, the world came up winning just by staying afloat and making it through Dec. 21. With the Mayan calendar behind us, it is time to look forward to the many better things 2013 has in store, especially for those lucky enough to wear orange. —Compiled by The Daily Orange Feature Staff, firstname.lastname@example.org
Out with the old
In with the new
At the beginning of 2012, Syracuse had an uncharacteristically boring winter season. Snowfall was at a decade-low point with an embarrassing 12.9 inches of snow by mid-January, and skiers and snowboarders had little to look forward to other than possible sunburn as they took to the slopes.
As 2013 begins to take shape, Syracuse is back in precipitation action when it comes to snowfall. The city has already accumulated 39.3 inches of snowfall, eclipsing last season’s total at this time by upward of 26 inches. Syracuse is way ahead of Rochester, Binghamton, Albany and Buffalo in terms of snowfall, making it a frontrunner for the coveted Golden Snowball Award, given each year to the Central New York city with the highest snowfall.
The Westcott Theater and The Lost Horizon had some good shows in 2012, but the roof was brought down for all the wrong reasons. True, Matt and Kim played a sold-out show, but there was little variety in genres and bands overall.
In 2012, South Campus was just getting used to the new bus system. Slocum Heights and Winding Ridge got their own morning bus routes, but for some reason, the buses were just as crowded. How did it happen? Students were confused.
Although it was a nice change from hearing greek houses blare tunes to the wishful lyrics of Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe,” it is time to lay that song to rest. And while we’re at it, let’s leave “Gangnam Style” in 2012 for fear of it becoming this generation’s “Macarena.”
There are some who wear pants. And there are others that wear baggy sweatshirts, tight leggings and Ugg boots. 2012 was an infestation of this heinous trend that affected anyone from middle school kids to 20-year-olds. While unifying people of different ages can sometimes be a good thing, in this case, it wasn’t. It looked tacky and sloppy, and was just a way to maintain some semblance of sex appeal while being able to wear the same clothes for three straight days.
The concert lineups have changed. The Lost Horizon is adding pop-rock, hip-hop and indie-rock into the mix, while The Westcott is switching it up even more. Bela Fleck and his banjo will infuse the theater with some folk music in the spring. And for those who were swept up by ‘90s’ boyish charm, Aaron Carter is coming to Syracuse in February. He may not be Nick Carter, and he certainly isn’t bringing back the Backstreet Boys, but he is sure to excite some fans.
We’re only two weeks into the new year, but students are finally beginning to learn the bus schedule. For those who haven’t mastered it, here are a few tricks: The Winding Ridge and Slocum Heights routes go to and from campus. And perhaps the best-kept secret of all is that the Manley bus goes straight to Winding Ridge.
The British Invasion of the ‘60s that once gave the world iconic boy bands such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who is back again in the form of five floppy-haired, dreamy heartthrobs. That’s right, One Direction is here to stay. Feel free to start blasting their singles, frat boys. Feel free to start dressing like them, too.
Fortunately, as 2013 picks up, the colored pants trend is starting to pick up, which will inject some freshness and liveliness into outfits. And most importantly, the actual inclusion of pants.

Shades of Grey Television writers focus on relationship drama instead of medical drama on ‘Grey’s Anatomy’
graphic illustration by cheryl seligman | design editor
By Jacqueline Grossman CONTRIBUTING WRITER
et’s be honest with each other, we were expecting this return-from-break “Grey’s Anatomy” episode to be one for the history books. Ferry explosions, plane crashes and even icicles through the chest were used, but a motorcycle accident caused by a minivan? How surprisingly uncreative! No, this past Thursday wasn’t about the shock factor, it wasn’t about the gore, it wasn’t even about the hard-to-pronounce medical phenomenon that just so happens to occur all the time at Seattle Grace. Hemangioblastomas, anyone? Instead, the episode centered on relationships, and some pretty heavy stuff, might I add. The writers did a spectacular job pairing off every single character before reaching the midseason break. It makes sense that they did this, since most real-world hospitals have just the right ratio of attractive men to women and just the right amount of sexual tension to steer soul mates toward each other. But it seems like these setups were meant to serve a greater purpose this week. Each relationship was put to the test, their squirmy situations held under the microscope to see if they would pull through or completely tank. April and Jackson’s flirtatious-turned-true love situation came to an abrupt halt when
the two decided separation was a must. In an effort to prevent the seemingly unavoidable chemistry between the two, the lovebirds used their innocent interns, Shane and Stephanie, as physical and emotional buffers. The problem was, April was just using Shane, as we find out she’s not interested in him despite giving the poor guy obvious signals. Meanwhile, Jackson’s feelings for Stephanie became more intense than he could handle. The two were going at it in the back of Jackson’s car instead of attending Bailey’s wedding party (rude). Sucks to suck, April. You should have married Jackson when you had the chance. Pull-throughs: zero. Break-ups: one. While Jackson and April are trying to break apart, Callie and Arizona are trying to put the pieces back together. It seems like they’re heading in the right direction. This is the first time in months Arizona feels comfortable being intimate with Callie. Despite the slight hiccup when Arizona is too ashamed of her prosthetic leg to have sex with Callie, Callie shrugs her shoulders and settles for a good old-fashioned junior high make-out session. It looks like they’re going to make it, folks. This was actually a pretty powerful scene with some interesting Callie character development. Despite telling Bailey to run in the previous episode, Callie chooses to remain with Arizona. This proves that Callie’s moral fiber
is still intact. I really thought she was going to heed her own advice and leave Arizona. Good thing I was wrong. Looks like Callie truly is a good wife after all. So the score is now tied: one breakup and one pull-through. Let’s see how the others settle the score. Meredith and Derek are still going strong. Karev and his new foster-care buddy, Jo, seem to be developing some sort of twisted yet oddly cute relationship. Bailey and Ben were on the rocks at the beginning of the episode but pull through and get married. Chief Webber’s wife passes away (a scene that should have been more depressing than it was). And then there’s Christina and Owen, who end up signing the divorce papers, yet start kissing as soon as they put the pen down. What was the logic of having the two kiss after signing the papers? The writers made excellent use of the bikers when one of them told Owen he was a “cager” and stuck in a metal box. This conversation was absolutely necessary because it finally convinced Owen he needed to separate himself from his marriage. By having the new divorcees kiss after signing the papers, the writers do not accomplish what they set out to do: sever the ties completely. Instead of a clean break, there is now only confusion that will need to be cleared up next Thursday.
After a final count, it looks like the pullthroughs win. It was a smart move on the writers’ part; there was just the right amount of optimism to go with the heartbreak. Now that there’s enough relationship drama to last the rest of the season, let’s hope next week our Grey’s writers get back to a ratio of relationship-to-medical drama we’re used to. Save that over-the-top relationship drama for “Married to Jonas.” email@example.com

Syracuse University students make resolutions for 2013 By Julie Wilson CONTRIBUTING WRITER
Whether it’s taking a step toward their future or enjoying their time as Orange Nation members, Syracuse University students have been making resolutions for what they wish to accomplish in the New Year, both academically and personally. Here’s what some students are looking forward to in 2013. • Korey Raye Lane, freshman education major: “My resolution is to be classy, sassy, and smart.” • Serge Stambolyan, freshman information technology major: “My New Year’s resolution is to finish, or get close to finishing, a featurelength film script.” • Alex Kline, freshman broadcast and digital journalism major: “My resolution is to raise $50,000 for cancer research.” • Ben Glidden, junior broadcast and digital journalism major: “Wear more orange. Wait, that’s not even possible.” Glidden originally expressed this sentiment in hashtag form:
#waitthatsnotevenpossible • Giuseppe Castelli, freshman finance major: “Spend less, save more.”
“Let’s dance more with Nancy ‘Can’t Stop the Beat’ Cantor, and let’s be more positive people.” Rachel Samples
JUNIOR TELEVISION, RADIO AND FILM MAJOR
• Jeniva Quinones, senior photography major: “My New Year’s resolution is to become financially independent by 2014.” • Whitley Williams, freshman interior design major: “My New Year’s resolution is to put myself as the No. 1 priority instead of others all the time.” • Rachel Samples, junior television, radio
and film major: “Let’s dance more with Nancy ‘Can’t Stop the Beat’ Cantor, and let’s be more positive people. We all can shout out a, ‘Hey pretty girl/guy!’ here and there throughout our daily routines.” • Mark Wilson, senior computer art major: “My resolution is to let go in 2013.” • Felicia Romain, freshman communication and rhetorical studies major: “My New Year’s resolution is to stay as focused as possible in school.” • Hernz Laguerre Jr., freshman in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications: “My New Year’s resolution is to continue to let the light in me shine so that others may be inspired and do the same.” • Deana Dicianni, freshman in the College of Arts and Sciences: “My New Year’s resolution is that I do well in school and be successful in whatever comes next for me.” It looks like SU is ready to take on the new year.

Fashion magazines fall short catering toward people of all shapes, sizes
f you’ve ever flipped through a fashion magazine, you’ve inevitably run into one of those guides on how to dress your body type. It usually gives you four meaningless options: boyish, pear-shaped, athletic, and — the always ambiguous — curvy. Does anyone really fit into just one of these options? Magazines look to celebrities to give the reader examples of these body shapes. “Wear black to slim a curvy figure — like Beyoncé! Or Jessica Biel! Or Katherine Heigl!” Wait, what? All of these women have a “curvy” figure? Seems to me that the only criterion for having a curvy figure is possessing boobs and hips. The usual complaint about fashion magazines is the lack of size diversity, with tall and skinny models manipulated to “perfection.” But lately, magazines have attempted to incorporate “real” women into fashion stories. In the October issue of Lucky Magazine, Editor in Chief Brandon Holley announced that they would be featuring more content and tips for more body types. In Lucky’s new “I Never Thought I Could Wear That!” feature, “real, curvy” women get style makeovers to suit their body types. Since
ALLISON MARIOT TI
never wears pajamas in public when is “curvy” a synonym for “real”? If I have a so-called “boyish” shape, am I fake? On the cover of the aforementioned Lucky issue, Christina Aguilera poses for the lens while the feature quotes her saying that she loves her voluptuous figure. Unfortunately, Lucky isn’t as welcoming to her curves. The cover shot and two images inside the magazine only show her face and upper torso. Magazines love to be overzealous in congratulating celebrities for getting back to their pre-baby body; the media just about forced Jessica Simpson to try Weight Watchers after she gained her baby weight. But what about those who aren’t working to lose weight? A hilarious quote by Amy Adams in InStyle magazine
shows that weight gain is just a part of life. She said, “I read about these actresses who get on a stationary bike two weeks after giving birth and I’m like, ‘What? Where did you push your baby out of?’ Since having Aviana, I have a muffin top, and that’s OK right now.” It seems like magazines aren’t really sure how to categorize these celebrities, so they overanalyze them. Take, for example, Christina Hendricks. Search her name on Google and people aren’t talking about her role on “Mad Men” — they’re talking about her weight. While critics call her an inspiration and a role model, she is still taken aback by all of the negative attention. She told New York Magazine, “It kind of hurt my feelings at first. Anytime someone talks about your figure constantly, you get nervous, you get really self-conscious. I was working my butt off on the show, and then all anyone was talking about was my body! It just leaves a bad taste in my mouth.” Hendricks even said she struggles to find designer dresses to borrow for award shows, as designers only lend out sizes 0 and 2. Though it seems like she shouldn’t have to defend her body, the fashion world just doesn’t get it.
However, the fashion world is beginning to realize they can’t ostracize bigger women. Larger models are never shown in fashion spreads, on runways or in fashion advertisements. As the public demanded size diversity, fashion magazines tried to change their attitudes. Marie Claire’s online article, “Should ‘Fatties’ Get a Room? (Even On TV?),” was publically reprimanded when writer Maura Kelly said she wouldn’t watch CBS sitcom “Mike & Molly” because she finds it “aesthetically displeasing to watch a very, very fat person simply walk across a room.” So, fashion magazines went in the opposite direction, falling over themselves to praise celebrities and models that are “curvy.” Then, they went overboard, calling almost every famous woman curvy. Us Weekly even posted pictures of Taylor Swift “showing off her curves” at the beach. Yep, even willowy Taylor Swift has become a target of the blanket term. It’s a way for magazines to say “Hey! Look! We’re accepting of all body types!” without actually doing so. I guess we should just embrace our curvy/pear-shaped/carrotshaped/person-shaped bodies. firstname.lastname@example.org

victory but ended a bit sourly when he took offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett with him to Orchard Park, N.Y. and the Buffalo Bills. He had done such a good job of implementing his plan — he wanted to rejuvenate the program he credits with molding him into a man back in his playing days — that he was wooed by multiple NFL teams. He had bettered his players (see: Ryan Nassib, Justin Pugh, Chandler Jones) and his coaches (see: Hackett, Tyrone Wheatley and Scott Shafer), which bettered his stock as a leader and visionary. So when Marrone wrote in an email to his players that he left the program in better shape than when he found it, that was absolutely true. From top (coaches) to bottom (players), there was improvement. And as Nassib and Pugh are on the verge of potentially being taken in the second round of the upcoming draft, it wouldn’t surprise me if another assistant coach or two were rewarded with a better opportunity elsewhere. In the four years prior to Marrone’s arrival, former head coach Greg Robinson gave Syracuse fans two positive moments to remember: a win over a ranked Louisville team in his second season, and an upset on the road against Notre Dame. Most people would consider his firing the only other occurrence worth cherishing. But Marrone brought a handful of memorable moments, one of which was the win over Missouri on a breathtaking final drive orchestrated by Nassib. Then there were three consecutive victories over West Virginia, one on the road, one at home and one at a neutral site. A demolishing of a Top10 opponent in Louisville. Another game-winning drive on the road at South Florida. A pair of Pinstripe Bowl trophies. For once — for the first time since Paul

Pasqualoni — there were more ups than downs. And at the center of it all was Marrone, whose coaching morphed mediocrity into reliability and stretched glimmers of talent into flashes of greatness. His players loved him, and they loved busting heads for him. In return, he looked after them in their post-football lives, helping dozens land jobs and internships. It was all part of his promise to help them as citizens first and football players second. He followed through on that mantra almost to a T. So as the final seconds ticked away in Missouri and Alec Lemon scampered into the end zone for the winning score, it became clear that Marrone had officially done it. He had yanked the Orange from the seemingly unbreakable grasp of football’s bottom feeders and lifted it up to a level that commanded respect — at least a little bit — from the rest of the country. His boss knew it, and that’s why Athletic Director Daryl Gross celebrated with Lemon and his teammates behind the end zone in Missouri. And Marrone knew it as he praised the toughness of his team and resilience of his players following the best win of his career. The smiles and laughs would come more than a month later in the interview room inside Yankee Stadium, a rare outward sign of pleasure from the coach whose moods shifted from disgruntled to antsy to business-like with little variation. Only once West Virginia was thoroughly beaten would he relax and let loose. The crowing achievement, though, was the night in Missouri that cemented Marrone’s legacy. He had done the unthinkable by making Syracuse football relevant. And I’m sure that fruit punch Gatorade never tasted sweeter.

game through this intensity on the practice field and his fiery pregame speeches, which he says are more for him than his players. His emotions are rooted in the lessons his father taught him and in a playing career cut short by injury. All of it has shaped Shafer’s coaching philosophy. “He is by far the most passionate person about the game of football that I have ever met in my entire life,” former Syracuse linebacker Derrell Smith said. Shafer’s father, Ron, was the head football coach at Riverside in Painesville, Ohio before he died at the age of 53. Shafer said he would watch his father shake his players’ hands on graduation day, or give them those hugs on senior day. When he realized he could have that much effect on someone’s life and be paid to do it, he decided to follow in his father’s footsteps. “The greatest thing I learned from him is that you actually do have an opportunity to touch peoples’ lives, and give them a chance, because of their abilities, to make a difference and elevate themselves as young men and people,” Shafer said. “That’s the greatest thing about this job.” As an education major, he took teaching methodology classes he said were boring at the time, but valuable now. He learned different approaches to teaching, which meant he learned

different ways to get through to his players. After he graduated from Baldwin-Wallace, he went on to Indiana to work as a graduate assistant coach and earn his master’s degree. Part of his fieldwork was to immerse himself in the inner city of Akron, where he spent time with Thomas Lewis, a wide receiver at Indiana and eventual first-round draft pick by the New York Giants. Shafer said the more time he spent with Lewis, the more he listened to the way Lewis viewed things and the more it helped him as coach. During his time at Indiana, he was sent to live on the White Mountain Apache Indian
outside, pressure packages that look like they’re coming from one side but come from the other, showing a blitz but then dropping into coverage, it all gives quarterbacks fits. In 2004, Western Michigan was 1-10. Shafer arrived as the defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach in 2005. In 2006, the Broncos went 7-4. Shafer’s defense led the country in interceptions, sacks and was 11th in the nation in total defense. In 2006, Stanford was 1-11. When Jim Harbaugh, now the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, took over in 2007, he hired Shafer as his defensive coordinator. The Cardinals finished 4-8 that year.
I envision an offense with a lot of juice, a lot of Orange juice. I want an offense that’s fast, that’s fun and inventive. Reservation in Whiteriver, Ariz. for more fieldwork. It was a completely different environment than anywhere Shafer had ever lived, and yet it was the same. The kids on the reservation liked to play pickup basketball as much as they did in Akron. It was a new culture that molded his understanding of teaching and coaching. Wherever he was, he learned to “keep it real” with recruits. The inner cities of Chicago and Miami are two of the areas where he’s spent the most time recruiting. When he goes into kids’ homes and talks to them, Shafer understands how they see things because he’s been there and studied it. So as Shafer helped bring recruits like Garrett Wolfe and Michael Turner to Northern Illinois, one of his early coaching stops, he knew how to reach them. “He brings in the right recruits, he has a good rapport with all the players,” former Syracuse defensive end Mikhail Marinovich said. “Everyone loves him.” Throughout his coaching career, that has been a common theme. Several of his former players said they played hard for him because they respect him so much. The proof is in the results of Shafer’s teams. Shafer said he views the field as a quarterback, and develops schemes based on what he hated when he played. Press coverage on the

Lance Anderson was Shafer’s defensive tackles coach that season, and said the program started to turn around in 2007. Much of it had to do with Shafer, he said. “He drove the kids to play hard and believe in themselves,” Anderson said. “That’s what really started to build the program. That kind of attitude, that kind of intensity.” But it also goes back to how Shafer learned to teach. Shafer learned how different environments shape the way kids learn. Smith, a former linebacker at Syracuse, said Shafer fits the system to his players, rather than making his players fit the system. That enables him to play the best players he has, even if that means putting a freshman on the field. “He’s a master at that,” Smith said. “He’s a master at teaching.” Smith was a redshirt junior when Shafer joined Doug Marrone’s staff at Syracuse in 2009. He watched Shafer transform another defense. In 2008, the season before Shafer arrived, Syracuse ranked 101st in total defense and 101st in scoring defense. In Shafer’s first season, the Orange improved to 37th in total defense, and 81st in scoring defense. In 2010, Syracuse had a top-20 defense. The Orange was seventh in total defense and 17th in scoring defense. Syracuse finished that year 8-5, its first winning season since 2001.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone has interviews scheduled with the Buffalo Bills and the Cleveland Browns.
Monday Jan. 7
Marrone is formally introduced as the Bills head coach. Within minutes, his players receive an email apologizing for not telling them and thanking them for the chance to coach them.
Shafer has become known for his fiery pregame speeches to his defenses, but the entire team usually ends up listening. Shafer said it’s his opportunity to let off some steam before the game so he can clear his mind and think. Regardless, his words have a discernible effect on his players. “It was a pregame speech for the defense but even the offensive guys on the other side of the locker room would get fired up about it,” former SU cornerback Nico Scott said. “That’s the type of intensity that he brings to the program.” Now his pregame speeches, which he said he might adjust now that he’s head coach, are for the whole team. They help him connect with his players and challenge them. The day Shafer learned he was going to be the Orange’s next head coach, he was at the American Football Coaches Association conference at the Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville, Tenn. Moments before SU Athletic Director Daryl Gross called to offer the job, Shafer’s wife, Missy, ran into Floyd Keith, who gave Shafer his first full-time job as the secondary coach at Rhode Island. When Shafer accepted the offer from Gross, memories flooded his mind. He thought of his father and his mother, he thought of his wife and his kids. The day before he left Nashville, word of his hiring having already spread throughout the convention, he met up with more people from his past. There was Danny Roushar, now the offensive coordinator at Michigan State, who worked with Shafer at Rhode Island and Northern Illinois. There was Pat Narduzzi, Michigan State’s defensive coordinator, who worked with Shafer and Roushar at Rhode Island and Northern Illinois. Tim Daoust, Syracuse’s defensive line coach, then walked in. Then Jason Rebrovich, a defensive assistant for the Orange, joined. After a little while, Shafer’s past and present collided. The people who shaped him were right there with him. He said the feeling of being Syracuse’s head coach has sunk in. Everything he’s learned, from Ohio to Arizona to all of his coaching stops in between, has led to this. He’s the head coach at Syracuse. He has more players to reach. “The team won’t just play to win the game,” Smith said. “They’ll play to win the game for Coach Shafer.” email@example.com

guy is already a head coach,” SU Athletic Director Daryl Gross said Friday at Shafer’s introductory press conference. Shafer’s resume speaks for itself. He’s paid his dues in the coaching profession, gaining the respect of his colleagues since he started his career as a graduate assistant at Indiana in 1991. He proved himself at Northern Illinois, where he led a unit that ranked toward the top in many defensive categories in the Mid-American Conference during much of his tenure. He
proved himself at Western Michigan, where he helped the program go from one win in 2004 to eight in 2006 – a year in which his defense led the country in sacks and interceptions. And he proved himself at Stanford, where he worked under Jim Harbaugh, now the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers. “Scott is hard working, enthusiastic and of high character,” Harbaugh said in a statement. “Great things will happen with Shafe.” Great things have already happened with Shafer at Syracuse.

10-37 stretch in Greg Robinson’s four-year tenure as head coach left the program in shambles. In the last four years, the Orange put together two winning seasons highlighted by a pair of bowl victories and a share of the 2012 Big East title. Shafer left his mark on the program’s turnaround through his work with the defense. He did his job, getting the players to buy into his system and bringing out the best in them with his fiery coaching style. In his first season, SU finished 37th in the nation in total defense – a category it ranked 101st the previous year. The Orange was seventh in the country in 2010, which was the team’s first winning season (8-5) since 2001. It all contributed to the foundation for success laid by Marrone in the last four years – a foundation needed for Shafer to carry out his vision for the program’s future. “We want to make one of the best teams in the nation,” Shafer said. “That is a goal of ours.” It’s an ambitious goal, and whether SU achieves that remains to be seen. But Shafer is
fired up after receiving his first head-coaching job – something that’s been a goal of his since he was 10 years old, growing up as the son of a high school football coach. He’s dedicated his life to coaching. He understands how to motivate his players. He knows what it takes to prepare his teams to play. He has a detailed plan for Syracuse football to achieve his goal – a vision of a hard-nosed team that plays a brand of football that’s fun to watch. It’s Shafer’s program now, and he’s ready to pour everything he has into making his vision a reality, just as he did the last four years leading the defense with his simple, effective approach. “I’m the type of person that always felt like you do your job and everything else takes care of itself,” Shafer said. This Syracuse team will be a reflection of Shafer. Ryne Gery is a staff writer at The Daily Orange, where his column appears occasionally. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shafer adds former WMU colleague Bullough as defensive coordinator By Chris Iseman SPORTS EDITOR
Scott Shafer announced his first move as Syracuse’s head coach Friday: hiring Chuck Bullough as the Orange’s defensive coordinator. When Shafer was Western Michigan’s defensive coordinator, Bullough was his linebackers coach for the 2005 season. Shafer said at his introductory press conference Friday that Bullough shares his values and is familiar with Shafer’s defensive philosophy and schemes. “There’s only a handful of people in the business that you trust like a brother. There’s a lot that you respect, but there’s only a handful that you trust,” Shafer said. “The highs and lows of all the years being a coach, the guys that got your back all the way through and those are usually the guys that you have an opportunity to work with.” Bullough said in a statement that he and Shafer connected immediately at Western Michigan, and he’s excited to continue that at SU. “The game of football is about enthusiasm, integrity and toughness,” Bullough said in the statement. “Coach Shafer and I grew up in the game of football with our fathers and coaches. We were taught from a young age to enjoy and respect the game. From just about the moment we met at Western Michigan, we had an instant connection because of our philosophy and values.”
Bullough spent the last two seasons as a defensive assistant for the Cleveland Browns, who had the No. 5 defense in the American Football Conference last season. Before working for Cleveland, Bullough was UCLA’s defensive coordinator in 2009 and 2010. He also worked on the coaching staffs at Michigan State, Lake Forest College and for the Chicago Bears. Shafer said Friday he will help out on defense, but will give control to Bullough. “I will also keep my hand in the scheme, especially on the defensive side of the football,” Shafer said. “Chuck and I have been together and we come from the same sort of scheme as well as philosophical viewpoint. That’s how we’re going to go about it.” Bullough was a two-time, All-Big Ten conference linebacker at Michigan State before being drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the eighth round of the 1992 NFL Draft. He spent time with the Eagles, Miami Dolphins and Indianapolis Colts before returning to Michigan State as a defensive backs coach in 1997. Shafer said Bullough is one of his closest friends and someone he idolized as a coach. He said he is the right person to take over as Syracuse’s defensive coordinator. “He’s a hard-nosed guy,” Shafer said. “I trust him like a brother.” email@example.com

SU women’s lacrosse dominates Jacksonville 21-8 in opener In college lacrosse’s season-opener, Syracuse defeated Jacksonville 21-8 Sunday in Jacksonville, Fla., behind five goals and six points from freshman Kayla Treanor. She tied the SU record for most goals in a freshman debut, set last year by sophomore Kailah Kempney. Junior Alyssa Murray scored three goals and dished out two assists for a five-point performance. Kempney, senior Becca Block, junior Katie Webster and sophomore Devon Collins scored two goals each. The Dolphins struck first Sunday with a goal by Brit Orashen two minutes into the game. But Syracuse responded with eight unanswered goals in the next 10 minutes to take control. Jacksonville battled back to make it a 10-5 game, but Treanor scored with four seconds left in the first half to take back momentum for SU. After the Orange took a 13-6 lead, JU fought back to cut the deficit to five again 10 minutes into the second half. But Syracuse dominated the final 20 minutes of the game with another 8-0 run – including a three-goal, 17-second stretch – to put the game away. SU junior Alyssa Costantino made four saves in the first half and sophomore Kelsey Richardson recorded four stops in the second half. Syracuse executed in the draw circle, winning 21-of-30 draw controls. Ranked No. 1 in the preseason by Inside Lacrosse, the Orange won its sixth consecutive season-opener. SU returns to Florida on Jan. 26 to play the U.S. National Team at the Champion Challenge. The Orange’s first home game will be Feb. 17 when it hosts Maryland, a Final Four team a year ago.
Ice Hockey Syracuse missed out on a chance to seize control of the College Hockey America conference,
dropping to a pair of losses at No. 7 Mercyhurst at the Mercyhurst Ice Center in Erie, Pa. Friday and Saturday. The Orange (10-10-1, 4-3-1 CHA) was shut out for the first time since January 2, 2012 in the first game Friday before falling 4-1 Saturday. On Friday afternoon SU was saddled by its failure to punish Mercyhurst on the power play. The Orange went 0-for-5 and crucially forgave MU at the 13:18 mark in the third period, down 1-0 with a power play opportunity. The Orange stayed even with the hosts through two periods until Christie Cicero put the Lakers ahead for good 3:08 into the third period. SU went on to outshoot Mercyhurst 9-5 in the final period but never got the equalizer, even skating six-on-five nearly all of the last minute of play. SU goalkeeper Kallie Billadeau equaled MU’s Amanda Makela with 24 saves. Saturday afternoon belonged to Mercyhurst. The Lakers outshot the Orange 12-6 in the opening frame with Emily Janiga giving the hosts the edge 12:17 into the game on a power play for a hooking call on SU captain Jacquie Greco at 11:57. Again, the Orange failed to punish its hosts enough on the power play. Mercyhurst committed 12 penalties to SU’s six. By the time the Orange finally capitalized on Greco’s five-onthree tally 17:19 into the second period, Janiga had already scored twice more. SU went into the third period trailing 3-1but was outshot 14-8 in the final frame and conceded a fourth goal just 2:29 in. Billadeau finished with 34 saves. The losses drop SU to fourth in the CHA while Mercyhurst’s four points from the weekend boosted the Lakers to 16 points in the conference – four ahead of Robert Morris and seven clear of the Orange.

Track and field Last Friday the Syracuse track and field team traveled to the Armory in New York City to compete in the Gotham Cup. The event that annually kicks of the spring season hosted 45 college teams located throughout the Northeast and East Coast regions. After the men finished 56th in last year’s NCAA Championship, Syracuse looked to use the Gotham Cup as a starting point for 2013. Upperclassmen runners led the way as five athletes finished in the top five of five different events. Senior Lauren Penney was at the forefront of the Orange’s success, edging out secondplace finisher Nicole Traynor from the NY-NJ Track Club (4:47.57) with a time of 4:46.03 in the women’s mile. Freshman Shania Harrison and junior Jaquan Holland provided a pair of second-place finishes in their respective 60-meter dashes. In the women’s race Harrison (7.42) finished behind former Syracuse runner Flings Owusu-Agyapong (7.32). In the men’s race Holland (6.87) finished just .08 seconds behind Jeremy Bascom from the Central Park Track Club (6.75). In the men’s mile, senior Tito Medrano finished in second place with a time of 4:15.59. Saint Joseph’s runner Paul Szulewski (4:14.36) took home first place. Another bright spot for the Orange was senior Will Watson, who finished in fifth place in the men’s long jump. The best jump of the day for Watson came at 6.87 meters. Senior Amadou Gueye finished fifth in the

Tennis Syracuse (0-2, 0-1) came up short in its first spring match of 2013. The No. 72 Orange lost 6-1 to No. 43 South Florida Saturday in Tampa, Fla. at the USF Varsity Tennis Courts. No. 2 singles junior Maddie Kobelt gave SU its only victory when she defeated No. 75 Loreto Alonso Martinez 6-1, 6-2. The win was Kobelt’s first against a ranked opponent in her SU career. Sophomore Jimena Wu came up short in her No. 4 singles match against Paula Montoya, 6-1, 5-7, 11-4. Looking to earn her first collegiate victory, freshman Sophia Dzulynsky narrowly lost to Alessandra Bonte, 6-7, 6-4, 15-13 in No. 6 singles. The Orange returns to action during the weekend when SU faces Georgia Tech on Jan. 17 and Georgia State on Jan. 19, both in Atlanta. — Compiled by The Daily Orange sports staff, firstname.lastname@example.org

what we needed.” Cooney’s clutch 3-pointers broke open a hardfought Big East game and capped a decisive sixpoint performance in Syracuse’s 72-61 victory over Villanova at the Carrier Dome Saturday. A season-high 27,586 in attendance celebrated as SU earned the victory, despite playing without Triche for nearly 12 minutes in the second half (foul trouble) and second-leading scorer James Southerland for the entire game (ineligible). “I thought of all our wins in the last couple years, this was our grittiest, toughest performance I think we’ve had,” Boeheim said. Boeheim said his team dug in defensively and battled through the early shooting struggles and two-point halftime deficit. The head coach called C.J. Fair’s number out of the break, running screen after screen for him in the half-court set. Fair responded, scoring 11 of Syracuse’s first 13 points in the half. The forward finished a tip-in, knocked down a 3-pointer and hit a pair of jumpers to inject some energy into SU. “I knew I had to start taking what the defense was giving me,” said Fair, who finished with a game-high 22 points. “And our bigs were doing a good job setting me screens so I could curl into the middle and make a play.” Syracuse’s lead grew to six with a pair of free throws by Fair. But Villanova didn’t back down. Wildcats center Maurice Sutton finished underneath to cut the lead to two, and his teammate Achraf Yacoubou hit a 3 to move within one with 11:16 remaining. The teams continued to battle as Villanova cut an eight-point deficit in half within about eight minutes to play. Then SU went on its decisive run. It started
MEN’S BASK ETBA LL when point guard Michael Carter-Williams found Jerami Grant for a cross-court pass and an easy finish. Fair swooped into the lane for another two, and Cooney tipped away a Villanova pass to set up a Syracuse break. Carter-Williams stopped on the left wing and rewarded the sharpshooter for his defensive effort, hitting him with a pass for a 3 from the left corner. The point guard leaped in the air and the SU bench rose to its feet as the ball fell through. A quick Wildcats turnover set the stage for Cooney’s second 3-pointer. “I hit the first one and then we get another stop coming down,” Cooney said, “and they set up a play and that shows you how much confidence (Boeheim) has in me and my teammates have in me, too, to get me the ball in that position.” Triche believed it as he watched from the bench while Syracuse set up the screen for Cooney. Cooney drilled it to give the Orange a 61-47 lead – its largest of the game – with less than six minutes to play. DaJuan Coleman stormed off of the bench to greet his teammates with his team well on its way to another win. Triche was right there to watch SU continue its run after the timeout, cracking a smile and sharing a laugh with assistant coach Adrian Autry after another Orange bucket. And despite going 1-for-8 from the field and watching from the sideline during the game’s crucial stretch, Triche echoed Boeheim’s assessment of the victory as one of SU’s most impressive in the last few years. “I think this is one of the biggest wins for me in the last four years I’ve been here,” Triche said, “and I was on the bench for part of it. Everybody’s just stepping up.” email@example.com

With James Southerland sidelined indefinitely and Brandon Triche on the bench in the second half because of foul trouble, Fair bailed out his teammates, scoring 11 of Syracuse’s first 13 points of the second half and finishing with a game-high 22 points to pull the Orange back from a halftime deficit to a double-digit victory.
13 BIG NUMBER
Freshman forward Jerami Grant chipped in a career-high 13 points off of the bench in Syracuse’s victory. With forward James Southerland sidelined indefinitely, Grant was called upon for a larger role and delivered, scoring as many points as Southerland averages per game.
Less than four minutes into the second half, Triche picked up his fourth foul and headed to the bench, where he sat for nearly 12 minutes. The guard still finished with 10 points, but the time spent on the bench left a major void on offense.

With Southerland ineligible, freshman trio leads SU to win By Chris Iseman SPORTS EDITOR
Out of necessity, Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim gave three of his youngest players extensive minutes. And out of necessity, each of them took advantage of nearly every minute they spent on the floor. With one of Syracuse’s most experienced, productive players on the bench in street clothes, three freshmen softened the blow his loss delivered to the Orange. The trio of DaJuan Coleman, Jerami Grant and Trevor Cooney combined for 25 points in Syracuse’s 72-61 win over Villanova (11-5, 2-1 Big East) in the Carrier Dome Saturday. With James Southerland ruled ineligible before the game and Brandon Triche in foul trouble in the second half, the freshmen’s scoring output gave the Orange (16-1, 4-0 Big East) exactly what it needed in a gritty win over the Wildcats. “Those freshmen, really, they had to step up,” Boeheim said. “I told them before the game, ‘I think you’re good players. You know you’re good players. You haven’t played because the guys in front of you are better players. That doesn’t mean you can’t play.’ They stepped up big.” Southerland is averaging 13 points per game this season. Grant matched that total on his own. He said he found out the night before the game that Southerland wouldn’t be able to play, and went to sleep with mixed emotions. Southerland’s loss meant Grant would be handed more minutes, but he also felt bad for his teammate. In 29 minutes, the most he’s played all season, Grant grabbed five rebounds, hit five free throws and had two blocks. For the first time all year, he was given more than mere sporadic minutes throughout the game. “It’s definitely more comfortable. It allows me to get into a rhythm,” Grant said. “I felt good playing a lot of minutes. At the same time, I was

games for SU all season, including a nine3-pointer, 35-point performance against Arkansas on Nov. 30. Without him coming off of the bench, Syracuse now has to turn to its younger players to make up for his production. While Southerland supports his teammates from the bench, Fair said the Orange still misses him on the floor. “He’s still a part of the team, he’s just not playing with us,” Fair said. “We’ve just got to find a way to make up all his production he made out there.”
Coleman comes up big at both ends of floor A quick glance at the box score shows DaJuan Coleman only scored six points in 15 minutes of action. But the freshman center’s contributions in the paint came at crucial points during Syracuse’s 72-61 win against Villanova Saturday. His first bucket of the second half, a strong move finished on the left side of the glass, gave SU a six-point lead with 13:09 left. His second came after the Wildcats closed to within one point, an emphatic slam off of an up-and-under move that led to an ovation from the Carrier Dome crowd when he checked out 21 seconds later. “I thought DaJuan made a couple good plays,” Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said. “We got him the ball in position and he made a couple good plays out there for us which I think was good.” Coleman was decisive underneath on his two
tired though.” Boeheim said Grant kept Syracuse in the game in the first half when he scored seven of his 13 points. Grant’s first-half highlight came with 6:04 left until the break. After C.J. Fair missed a layup, Grant flew in and slammed home the putback to give the Orange a 15-14 lead. As he spoke in front of his locker after the game, his iPhone lighting up with text message after text message, Grant said he wanted to come out with intensity. “My mindset was just to come out aggressive,” Grant said. “I feel like I did that on the offensive and defensive end.” And while Grant kept Syracuse in the game in the first half, Cooney and Coleman picked up their share of the slack in the second. Cooney came into the game with a little more than seven minutes in the first half and started out cold from the field. He missed his first four shots and went into halftime without a single point. When he was needed the most, though, Cooney found his stroke. With Syracuse up 55-47, Cooney drained a big 3-pointer from the left corner that electrified the crowd. On Syracuse’s next possession, he hit another triple from the top of the key to make it 61-47, a 14-point lead for the Orange and its biggest of the day. With Southerland out, Cooney knew he had to give Syracuse a boost off of the bench. “When you lose a guy that comes out and scores offensively, other guys have to step up,” Cooney said. “I think Jerami and I, DaJuan, did a good job of that coming off the bench and just adding a spark to the team.” Coleman finished with six points, but made big baskets when he needed to. With 13:09 left in the game, he made a nice move in the low post when he dribbled once then maneuvered his way to the rim for a layup that gave SU a 42-36 lead.
scoring chances, a contrast to his hesitant play early in the season. He also brought a physical presence to SU’s zone, leading Boeheim to say he was more “engaged “ on the defensive end. Coleman grabbed two rebounds and added a steal in his limited minutes. Coleman said he is focused on making strong moves to the basket, especially as SU continues conference play against tough opponents. He accomplished that Saturday with his strong play offensively. “This is Big East play, you ain’t going to get the fouls so just go strong to the basket,” Coleman said. “That’s what I did.” When he wasn’t on the court, Coleman remained concentrated on the game watching from the bench. He was emotional running down the court after his first basket gave SU some breathing room, and released more excitement heading to the bench with Syracuse still holding onto its three-point lead. Minutes later, after Trevor Cooney’s 3-pointer put the Orange up by 14 to seal the win, Coleman was the first to jump off of the bench. “I just try to bring energy and anything I can do to get the team pumped up,” he said. “Because when you get the team pumped up, everybody’s scoring, everybody’s involved, the crowd’s involved and it kind of shifted our way so that’s what I tried to do. “That’s the player I’m trying to be.” firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com
sam maller | asst. photo editor JERAMI GRANT scraps for an offensive rebound in the second half amid four Villanova players. The freshman forward grabbed five boards and scored a career-high 13 points. “I thought DaJuan made a couple good plays. We got him the ball in position. He made a couple good plays out there for us which I think is good,” Boeheim said. “Defensively he knocked a couple away. I thought he was much more engaged.” Triche came out of the game with 16:28 left in the second half and didn’t come back to the floor until there were about five minutes left.
Boeheim said after the game he played the three freshmen so much because he had to. While it might not be what he prefers, on Saturday, it ended up winning Syracuse the game. “It was really freshmen that won us this game,” Boeheim said. “The three freshmen were the difference in the game.” firstname.lastname@example.org

oug Marrone sat beneath the grandstands of Memorial Stadium, a fresh bottle of red Gatorade open by his left hand. He looked exhausted. His shirt bore sweat marks. His normally commanding voice lacked its usual vigor. But Marrone, the former Syracuse football coach, looked content late on this particular Saturday evening. Happy to be drained. Pleased in knowing that his effort was well spent. He had just exited the SU locker room, turned left and walked up a ramp toward a makeshift press table in Columbia, Mo. In those few strides he prepared for what felt like the press conference at the pinnacle of his coaching ascent, with the Syracuse football program he resurrected strapped tightly to his back. In three years of covering Marrone and Syracuse, first as a stringer for the Finger Lakes Times and the last two years with The Daily Orange, this is the moment I will remember most about his tenure. The 31-27 win over Missouri — on the road, on national television, on a night when his team overcame a double-digit deficit, on a field where Georgia once trailed with a minute remaining in the third quarter, on a Southeastern Conference stage — earned Marrone the right to cross the most important item off of his rebuilding checklist: compete on the national level. For that reason, not to mention the game clinched a second bowl appearance in three years, it represents Marrone’s most important win in a 25-25 career on the Syracuse sidelines. The rest of the season was his ride off into the sunset. A ride that started joyously following a stop home in the Bronx for another Pinstripe Bowl

But the opportunity passed and
Syracuse reset its offense. SU head coach Jim Boeheim called for a set play, running Trevor Cooney off of a screen to the top of the key for his second straight 3-pointer.
