Cuts made to higher education By Christina Levin STAFF WRITER

Although funding for the Tuition Assistance Program wasn’t cut when the New York state budget passed last week, spending was cut for other higher education programs, causing Syracuse University officials to continue to monitor aid availability. Lawmakers ratified Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s New York state budget early Thursday morning, beating the Friday deadline for the first time in five years, according to a Thursday article in The New York Times. The $132.5 billion budget trims year-to-year spending for the first time

On Tuesday, the Board of Trustees voted to suspend operations and lay off all of the musicians and part of the staff effective Sunday.

Facing the music Musicians reminisce as financial struggles end symphony season early



eethoven’s sixth symphony tells the story of weathering a storm. The Syracuse Symphony Orchestra performed Beethoven’s sixth as its last piece Saturday night, in its final concert before the orchestra’s Board of Trustees suspended its artistic operations and laid off all of the musicians and most of the staff on Sunday. Family, friends and students nearly filled Crouse College’s Setnor Auditorium for a tearful and early end to the orchestra’s 50th anniversary season. Beethoven’s sixth symphony — also known as the “Pastoral Symphony” and first performed more than two centuries ago in December 1808

— begins its first movement with the composer’s instructions: “Awakening of cheerful feelings upon arriving in the country.” ••• Gregory Wood arrived in Syracuse more than 32 years ago, after hearing about the SSO “by accident,” as he puts it. In Aspen, Colo., a fellow University of Cincinnati student mentioned the SSO, and Wood decided to add it to his audition list. He made the final rounds at the National Symphony, Detroit Symphony, Rochester Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic and Boston Symphony orchestras, as well as the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, where he played after he graduated from Cincinnati’s music conservatory.

But he chose Syracuse. Wood, who now plays assistant principal cello, moved to Syracuse in 1978 for the SSO. Syracuse’s orchestra offered him a leadership position, and he wanted to play in a city smaller than his native New York City, where he lived on Long Island. Nine years later, he started teaching cello at Syracuse University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts. The orchestra was different back then, Wood remembers. Some of the musicians were teachers who still performed part time on their instruments, and some were full-time performers left over from when the orchestra began in 1961. “There was just a wide variety of skill level,” Wood said. “And as a result, the quality of the SEE SSO PAGE 8


SU to cover possible Pell Grant cuts By Jon Harris ASST. NEWS EDITOR

Despite the proposed cuts to the Federal Pell Grant Program, Syracuse University is moving forward with the financial aid process as planned. The university mailed financial aid awards on March 18 to regulardecision applicants who were accepted to SU, said Youlonda CopelandMorgan, associate vice president for enrollment management and director of scholarships and student aid at SU. The university also sent admissions notifications to applicants on March 18, she said. “Those awards for students that are eligible does keep the maximum Pell Grant at $5,550,” Copeland-Mor-

DPS updates Syracuse alumnus speaks night escort on experiences at ESPN program By Alex Ptachick STAFF WRITER


The Department of Public Safety is looking to improve late-night escort services by updating the program and adding additional vehicles. DPS has been “inundated” with calls for the escort service, and the vehicle escort was added as it can help more people in a shorter amount of time, DPS Capt. John Sardino said. “The services that we were providing that seemed to be sufficient no longer were sufficient, and we couldn’t keep up,” Sardino said. Requests for walking safety escorts have increased by 40 percent since last year, Sardino said. Last year, approximately 23,000 students requested a safety escort. Numbers were not available for the total escorts provided so far this semester.


Droves of students, faculty and staff shuffled into the Joyce Hergenhan Auditorium on Thursday afternoon, occupying the few available seats in the packed venue. The audience members whipped out their smartphones, iPads and laptops to tweet, snap a quick photo, log on to Facebook and check in on Foursquare. Brad Slavin, a freshman television, radio and film major, was one of those adding to the cyberscene through Foursquare and tweeting using the hashtag created by S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications officials, #Tirico, on his iPhone. The viral publicity produced by Slavin and a room full of others created a social media rush centered around Mike Tirico, a 1988 Newhouse graduate. He is now the lead broadcaster for ESPN’s Monday Night Football presentation and the second lead

broadcaster for ESPN’s presentation of the National Basketball Association. The loud chatter of excitement and anticipation within the audience faded to a dull murmur as Tirico entered the auditorium. “Tirico is a Newhouse graduate who has excelled and made the school proud through his success in the broadcast industry,” said Lorraine Branham, Newhouse’s dean, as she introduced him. The crowd then welcomed Tirico with beaming smiles and gracious applause. As he made his way to center stage, Tirico said, “Anyone know the score of the Yankees game?” If anyone in the auditorium was unaware of Tirico’s specialized area of broadcast journalism, his remark gave it away — sports. Tirico, a native of Queens, N.Y., attended Syracuse University as a broadcast journalism major. When he attended SU, Tirico was involved

I liked the immediacy of broadcast and describing things as they happened.” Tirico emphasized that stepping outside of the classroom and getting involved in organizations is better

exposure to what reality is like in the communications industry. “To maximize your experience here at Newhouse, you have to go beyond the walls of this building,” Tirico said. “You have to apply yourself and get involved in organizations that interest you.” Tirico added that becoming involved in on-campus organizations is a great way to be exposed to media professions, but having internships is another way to develop skills.

gan said. “At this point, nobody knows what’s going to happen there.” In February, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill, H.R. 1, which cuts nearly $60 billion from the 2011 fiscal year federal budget, including $5.7 billion from the Pell Grant Program, according to a U.S. News & World Report article published March 2. The changes would affect grants for the 2011-12 school year, lowering the maximum Pell Grant from $5,550 to $4,705, a decrease of $845. The U.S. Senate will now propose its own version of the bill before it moves onto President Barack Obama. The proposed cuts would reduce SU’s Pell Grant allocation by about $2.6 million, Copeland-Morgan said. Of the 14,201 undergraduates at SU for the 2010-11 school year, 3,962 — or nearly 28 percent of students — receive Pell Grants, she said. If the federal government moves forward with the cuts, Copeland-Morgan said, the university will fund the difference for Pell Grant recipients, whether they are incoming or returning students. In early March, the university had yet to make a decision on what it would do if the Pell Grant Program lost funding, according to an article published in The Daily Orange on March 3. “We have contingencies in place that will also make whole the funding for our students who are eligible for Pell Grants,” CopelandMorgan said. “So that is our plan, in the short run, for the 2011-12 academic year is to continue

to make that funding available.” The university is working with elected officials to help them understand the importance of federal financial aid, she said. “In times of economic challenges, people need to be able to depend upon the federal financial aid program for retraining or for the attainment of a bachelor’s degree, in the case of Syracuse University,” Copeland-Morgan said. If the cuts are made, 1.7 million students nationwide would no longer be eligible for the program, and an additional 7.5 million students would have their grants reduced, according to an email sent out to SU students on Feb. 24 by the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarship Programs. Diana Napolitano, a government relations associate in the Office of Government and Community Relations at SU, said her office worked with the financial aid office to send out the email to students. She said students will likely get another email when the Senate proposes a version of the bill. “It depends on what the most appropriate action would be, but most likely we will send out another email,” Napolitano said. “Because they’re talking drastic, drastic cuts.” Students should take action by sending personal emails to their U.S. representatives and senators about what the Pell Grant Program means to them, according to the Feb. 24 email. The Pell Grant Program, which provides need-based grants to low- and moderate-income undergraduate students based on a family’s annual income and the school cost, was fully funded for 2011-12 before H.R. 1 was cleared in

the House, according to the U.S. News & World Report article. The Pell Grant Program will have to deal with a budget shortfall of almost $20 billion in 2012 if no long-term changes are enacted, according to the article. About 27 percent of college students nationwide currently receive funding from the Pell Grant, according to the article. “The good news is we have more students going to college,” said Copeland-Morgan, SU’s director of scholarships and student aid. “The bad news is we have less people that are able to pay for college. So this is not simply a short-term problem that is going to go away. It’s a longerterm problem that the federal government and the policymakers have to grapple with.” Although SU recently sent out financial aid awards to those regular-decision applicants accepted for fall 2011, Copeland-Morgan said it is unclear when the Senate will deal with H.R. 1. The proposal to reduce the Pell Grant Program has only been approved in the House thus far, said Sara Gast, public affairs specialist at the U.S. Department of Education. She said she is unsure when the Senate will propose its own version of the bill. “The Senate has not approved that version, so it hasn’t even made it through Congress, much less the president,” Gast said. “The cuts aren’t finalized or anything like that.” The Education Department has been in talks with both the House and the Senate regarding the need to protect the maximum Pell Grant of $5,550, she said. “We’re certainly trying to communicate that message to all stakeholders, including schools and students, that we’re really dedi-

serve students’ needs and advise students of the bus schedule. In January, DPS added two vehicles to its escort services, Sardino said. DPS provides late-night shuttles to both on-campus and off-campus residences. Sardino said he was not surprised by the increased interest because of the advertising DPS has done to promote the services. Caz Limo and Tours’ late-night bus service has also been a “tremendous” help dealing with student transportation, Sardino said. At the end of the semes-

ter, DPS plans to review the escort services and see what else can be improved, Sardino said. Although the vehicle service has been added, walking escorts are still DPS’ go-to option if the officers on the beat are available, he said. There are two officers on each walking and driving escort jobs, Sardino said. Walking escorts serve shifts from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m., and vehicle escorts run from 8 p.m. to 3 or 4 a.m. — sometimes to 6 a.m. on busy weekend nights. Student reaction to the various late-night

cated to keeping the maximum amount,” Gast said. Tom Keane, director of the Office of Financial Aid and Student Employment at Cornell University, said Cornell is also moving forward, assuming the program doesn’t change. More than 16 percent of its undergraduates receive Pell Grants, he said. “It’s been a little challenging for us because all we have is pending legislation,” he said. But if cuts are made, Keane said Cornell will have to adjust and decide how to make up for the reduced funding from the program. He said the university will consider funding the difference itself, leaving the families to cover the difference or splitting the difference between the families and university. “We don’t know for sure yet,” Keane said. “We can talk all we want, but we have to wait for the Senate.”

transportation options is mixed. Latisha Lindo, a senior public relations major, has never used the service. She said she knows how long waiting for an escort could take and prefers to arrange for a ride. She said she thought the program was more helpful for underclassmen who might not have a group of friends to walk with or rely on for rides. But Shieldy Jean-Louis, a junior biology major, takes advantage of DPS’ added transport services to go from South Campus to her residence hall at Sadler Hall late at night. She said service has always been “excellent” and dependable. Sardino, who has driven an escort vehicle a couple of times, said the service seems to be something students want and appreciate. “Even with the delays, I have to say most students are really appreciative of the service,” Sardino said. Typically, students must wait between 10 to 15 minutes, Sardino said. But sometimes it can take 30 minutes or longer. Delays happen when the service becomes backlogged or officers are called away to deal with incidents that take priority, Sardino said. “A few times, students have had to wait 40 minutes,” he said. Last semester, Anna Kuskin, a freshman in the Bandier Program for Music and the Entertainment Industries, would call DPS after working a midnight to 2 a.m. Wednesday shift at the student radio station in Watson Hall. When she was ready to go back to her residence hall on Mount Olympus, she would call DPS. “They’re horrible,” Kuskin said. “I’ve called them, and they’ve told me it can take between five and 45 minutes.” But not every experience of Kuskin’s has been a bad experience. In January, Kuskin was walking across the Quad late one night when a DPS officer saw her walking alone and offered her a ride. Kuskin said: “And I was so thrilled.”

Effects of Cornell student death signal need for medical amnesty The Cornell University chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon disbanded Thursday after the school revoked recognition of the fraternity for at least the next five years, according to multiple March articles in The Cornell Daily Sun. Cornell’s revocation of SAE followed the death of one of its sophomore brothers, George Desdunes, due in part to alcohol consumption about a month ago. The university released a statement on March 18 that said the brothers of the fraternity recognized his incapacitated state, but decided not to call for medical assistance. He later died in a local hospital after brothers found him unresponsive in the morning. The proximity of this tragedy and its ongoing campus-wide consequences serve as lessons that even at Cornell — a campus with a comprehensive, if not convoluted, medical amnesty policy — fear of getting in trouble puts students’ lives at risk. Though authorities are still investigating the details surrounding

editorial by the daily orange editorial board Desdunes’ death, Cornell immediately turned to revising its medical amnesty policy to encourage students to call for help. Syracuse University does not have a medical amnesty policy. The administration and students have worked on drafting such a policy for the past two years. The ongoing events at Cornell should plant a seed of urgency in every person involved in drafting this policy. However, another lesson comes from Cornell’s tragedy: The less caveats and appendages the final policy includes, the better. A few clear guidelines about what the entire student body can expect will work much better than a nuanced policy, with exceptions that approach different situations with varying punishments. If students are confused or concerned about how the policy affects them in that particular situation, they will continue to avoid making those essential calls for help.

Regardless of accomplishments, commencement speaker should represent graduating class


t’s a little bit difficult to complain about this year’s choice of commencement speaker when he has been named one of the most influential people in the world by Time magazine and his scientific research has literally allowed our modern-day understanding of the human genome. Even if you have no idea what that means, assume it’s really important. But all the same, I really don’t care. There was a rumor going around that Bob Saget would be selected as our commencement speaker. He would’ve been great. Didn’t you watch “Full House”? His character loved hugs, cleaning and conflict resolution. What better life lessons could you ask for out of a commencement speech? The main problem with announcing J.

ment speaker to other people is that it’s just so anticlimactic. Me: J. Craig Venter is going to be my commencement speaker! My mom: What’s a J. Craig Venter? Alrighty then. SU has recently taken on the initiative to create a greener campus. Asking a scientist such as Venter, who has advanced the area of biofuels, to be the commencement speaker obviously makes sense in the green scheme of things. But maybe in about 10 years. By then, the whole green thing will have really taken off. Trees will be our friends and such. And don’t get me wrong, I’m all for saving the environment, but let’s be honest here: The Class of 2011 wasn’t really that green. Our freshman year, the dining

like her, too. Rutgers University recently brought in Snooki from “Jersey Shore” to speak to its students. She advised them to “work hard, but party harder.” Any of these people make for legitimate choices. Plus, Venter already spoke at the Life Sciences Complex dedication in 2008. Let’s give someone else a chance. A commencement speaker should be someone everyone knows. It should even be someone controversial. Jamie Dimon was both of these things. And you can hate on him all you want, but he makes a decent amount of money — you know, just enough to get by — and as we all know, money is the answer to everything. I can easily respect and admire Venter’s various achievements in the world of science. I’m sure I would be

But that literally just equates my commencement speaker, the individual who will be imparting SU’s final words of wisdom onto me, to every other boring rando I’ve had to read about throughout the past four years of classes. Selling yourself a little short there, SU, no? I know I’m not the first to say this, I know many disagree, and I know many others couldn’t care less either way, but as far as commencement goes — SU is totally not winning.

budget from page 1

in more than a decade but does not add major new taxes, according to the article. The 2011-12 budget eliminates a $10 billion deficit, reducing overall spending by more than 2 percent compared to the previous year, according to a March 27 press release. The new budget also establishes 10 regional economic development councils, which will create a way to provide funds to expedite job creation by region, according to the governor’s press release. The executive budget maintains formulas and policies for the TAP enacted in 2010-11 to decrease the projected growth in the program, according to the State of New York 2011-12 Executive Budget Briefing Book.

news@ da ilyor a

The TAP, which some SU students use, administers student loans and a savings program for college students and their families, in addition to offering financial guidance, according to a Feb. 3 article published in The Daily Orange. Ted Traver, project coordinator of the New York Public Interest Research Group, said the threshold for qualifying for some state aid is higher. It may appear as though funding isn’t cut for programs like TAP, but that may simply be because more people are going to college — something necessary in today’s competitive job market, he said. SU’s Division of Enrollment Management is now “closely monitoring” the proposed cuts in the Federal Pell Grant Program and in the Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant Program because nearly 4,000 SU students depend on Pell Grants, said Youlonda CopelandMorgan, associate vice president for enrollment management and director of scholarships and student aid at SU. She said SU remains committed to ensuring students receive the financial aid they need. “At SU, we are not immune to the state or federal budget debates,” Copeland-Morgan said in an

email. “We are pleased, however, that New York’s TAP grant will not see further cuts. Things could have been worse.” Despite state cuts, SU continues to be a “strong participant” in the Say Yes to Education program and will continue to offer these scholarships, Copeland-Morgan said. Cuomo, who called higher education a “key economic driver” in his January State of the State address, added $86 million to the State University of New York hospitals, City University of New York community colleges and SUNY schools, according to the March 27 press release. This number is less than what was added last year. Funding for higher education has reduced by 2.7 percent, or $80 million, compared to the 2010-11 spending, according to the State of New York 2011-12 Executive Budget Briefing Book. SUNY will see a $138 million cut this year, a 9.1 percent decrease from last year’s spending, according to the Budget Briefing Book. CUNY will face a $37 million reduction in spending compared to the previous fiscal year. The executive budget also terminates General Fund support for three SUNY teaching hospitals, including one in Syracuse, which

reflect approximately 8 percent of total hospital operating revenue. “Government needs to recognize the new economic reality,” the governor said in a video Thursday. “Government needs to tighten its belt and cut the waste.” This belt-tightening will hurt poorer urban school districts the most, especially those upstate, because they are heavily dependent on state aid, according to a Thursday article in The New York Times. Yonkers, for instance, had proposed laying off 20 percent of the school district’s workforce, including 400 teachers and administrators. But the governor has insisted that no layoffs are necessary because school districts can turn to reserves or unspent federal financing, according to the article. Cuomo has defended the leaner budget, saying short-term sacrifice may be necessary for longterm economic growth. In the March 27 press release, Cuomo said: “This budget makes tough choices, which is what you sent me to Albany to do.”


sports, such as golf and tennis, as well as ESPN’s coverage of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. “Covering the World Cup was life-altering,” he said. “The passion of the people and the uniqueness of South Africa was incredible.” Tirico explained that prior to covering the World Cup in studio, he prepared by going to work: He read about soccer, watched previous games and then relied on his strengths as a broadcaster to cover the sport for the first time. The best way to find a job that you love and enjoy doing every day is by exposing yourself to all the options and taking the lessons and skills learned with you into the future, he said.

“The more instruments you play, the more likely it is you’ll be in the orchestra,” Tirico said. Tirico said he thinks students are currently in a great era because they are part of a change with the immediacy of the Internet. The ability to create content and communicate is now enhanced for students by social media, including Twitter. “Your generation is in such a good place because you know where the change is coming from and where it’s going,” Tirico said. “I’m kind of disappointed about where we’re going, but in this industry, you have to be apt to change.”

Maddie Dockery, a sophomore broadcast journalism major and newcomer to CitrusTV said, “I’m not huge into sports, but he had really good advice about how we should look at our time at school as a great opportunity and get everything we can out of it.” Tirico started to make a name for himself at SU in 1987 as the sports director at Channel 5, a local Syracuse CBS affiliate.

Summer session College expands summer program by adding more classes



chool may be out for some this summer, but other area students will take advantage of new summer learning opportunities. The State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry will launch an expanded summer session offering more than 30 online, classroom and field-based courses over four terms beginning May 16 and ending Aug. 12. This year’s summer session will offer courses ranging from “Computer Aided Design” to “Food, Culture and the Environment from Garden to Table” to “Introduction to Golf Course Architecture,” said Charles Spuches, associate provost for outreach. Courses will be open to high school, undergraduate and graduate students from around New York state. In the past, ESF’s summer program has typically been made of research and courses at the Ranger School in Wanakena, N.Y., and Cranberry Lake Biological Station, Spuches said. Few, if any, courses take place at ESF’s Syracuse campus, Spuches said. The few courses that were offered on Main Campus were usually specified for a particular group of students rather than a broad assortment, he said. “What we’re doing now is expanding our offerings to include courses and other experiences that will service a broader range of ESF students and visiting students,” Spuches said. The program was first proposed during the 2009-10 academic year, and a small number of

courses were offered last summer as a test run. This year will be ESF’s first concerted effort at a full-fledged summer session, Spuches said. Spuches said ESF’s motivation behind the program was to expand the ways in which the college can support the community and was backed by an enthusiastic response from the faculty. “For us it’s a novelty,” Spuches said. “It’s never happened before, but I think it will be the new normal for us.” Aside from supporting the community, ESF may also be following trends in higher education. Elizabeth Vidon, an environmental studies instructor who will teach four courses at ESF this summer, said most other universities offer summer classes and ESF may be looking to establish the same practice. She said the summer courses will benefit both professors and students. Summer classes generally have fewer students, which Vidon said gives her an opportunity to do more interesting lessons and include group activities and assignments that would be difficult in larger classes. “Although the pace of the classes tends to be more intense, the atmosphere in the summer always feels a bit more relaxed,” Vidon said. Summer courses allow for more continuity and less time wasted on reviewing because classes meet at least four times a week instead of two or three, Vidon said. Students will be able to enroll in classes they otherwise would not have been able to take due to long waitlists, scheduling conflicts or enrollment caps, which could

help make the normal academic year better, she said. “They can knock out a number of their GenEd or other requirements in the summer so they can spend more time on the courses that interest them the most during the regular academic year,” Vidon said. Preston Gilbert, a landscape architecture professor, said along with combating high enrollment, the summer session will allow students to take courses they are personally interested in that may not necessarily fit in with their required courses during the academic year. Gilbert, who is teaching a summer course called “Introduction to Brownfields,” said he expects to see a good response to the course because he has taught the same course at community colleges and had high enrollment numbers. Jo Anne Ellis, associate librarian at ESF, said she hopes to see a higher enrollment compared to the trial-run programs from last year. Ellis will teach “Information Literacy,” which is a required course for half of ESF’s undergraduates. She said she hopes students will take advantage of the summer course, whether those registering for summer classes are college students trying to get ahead for the fall semester or make up classes, or are high school students who have taken part in ESF’s High School Program. “Who knows,” Ellis said, “we may even lure a few SU students over.”

orchestra was not nearly what it is today.” Three decades later, Wood reminisces about how far the orchestra has come. After everything, his fondest memory is one of camaraderie. The last time the orchestra played at Carnegie Hall, in April 2003, was the same night the SU men’s basketball team played in the national championship game. After nearly selling out Carnegie Hall, the orchestra headed to its reception at a hotel around the corner and watched SU win the national title on a big-screen television. Wood said he hopes that won’t be the last time the orchestra plays at Carnegie Hall. “I have faith in the community to rise up and demand that Syracuse keep the high-quality orchestra we have,” he said. “It’s one of the few things we can really have pride in.” ••• The second movement of Beethoven’s sixth symphony constructs the scene at the brook, famous for its birdcalls: the flute for the nightingale, the oboe for the quail and the clarinet for the cuckoo. Victoria Krukowski took up the clarinet in fourth grade, as soon as her front teeth came in. “My sister played the flute, so I wanted to play the flute. But she played the flute,” Krukowski said, laughing. “So I chose the clarinet.” She grew up here, listening to the SSO — her music teacher used to pick up students from home and take them to the symphony. She remembers, as a teenager, hearing former principal clarinetist Gerald Zampino perform Mozart’s clarinet concerto. “As music students at the time, we had dreams to go to conservatory and play in an orchestra

news@ da ilyor a

such as this.” Those dreams came true for Krukowski. She studied at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia and at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, and now plays second and E-flat clarinet for the SSO. One of her audition pieces happened to be Beethoven’s sixth symphony. She has been with the orchestra for 10 years, and said she hoped it would be longer. “I’m very sad that our Board of Directors made the decision to reverse their commitment to the orchestra and to the musicians and the community by closing the doors. At the same time, I’m very thankful to the community that stepped forward to support us and show that they do indeed want this full orchestra here in Syracuse,” Krukowski said before the concert. “It’s a bittersweet mix of sadness, bewilderment, and also gratitude and hope for the future.” ••• The revelry grows in Beethoven’s third movement, as the townspeople gather in celebration and dance. David Constantine is the orchestra’s newest musician. He joined a year and a half ago, and he plays percussion and assistant principal timpani. He and his wife moved from Oregon — almost 3,000 miles — and just got settled in Syracuse. “It’s just a real shame to see the orchestra go,” he said. “It’s such a gem.” Everything happened so fast, he said, and he doesn’t know what he’ll do now. He and his wife want to start their family in this community, and they aren’t ready to leave. Not yet. Daniel Hege, music director, said the outpouring of community support for the orchestra has overwhelmed him. Before the concert began Saturday night, he offered his profound thanks for those with deep hearts, even if they didn’t have deep pockets.

A wine shop offered a percentage of its proceeds to the orchestra. A tattoo studio inked music-related tattoos for a $25 donation to the SSO. College students rallied behind their professors who play in the orchestra. “It was just something so spectacular, it was beyond our wildest imagination,” Hege said of the support Saturday night, trying to explain how much it meant to him and the musicians. “This is an incredible buildup of all those hours of lonely practicing, of woodshedding on an instrument,” Hege said Sunday, “because they believe in something so beautiful that they want to share. Something so beautiful that it cannot be explained with words — only music.” ••• At the start of the fourth movement, violins’ raindrops interrupt the revelry of the peasants. Gradually the trombones, piccolo and other instruments enter as the storm crescendos in violent thunder and lightning. The SSO’s Board of Trustees voted last Tuesday to suspend artistic operations and lay off all of the musicians and some of the staff. The vote became effective Sunday. It canceled all of the concerts after Saturday’s Crouse College performance, including a Yo-Yo Ma concert scheduled for April 27. The SSO failed to reach its March fundraising goal of $445,000 and received $1.3 million in concessions from the musicians for the 2011-12 season. As of March 25, its “Keep the Music Playing” campaign had only raised $719,153 in donations, compared to its goal of $1.75 million by August 1. Jon Garland has been with the orchestra for 14 years. In addition to playing assistant principal horn, this year he serves as the chair of the musicians’ orchestra committee — meaning that in times of negotiation, he represents the musicians to the symphony management.

After graduating from The Juilliard School, he won an audition for the SSO. He knew nothing about Syracuse — he just wanted to play with its orchestra. The orchestra’s finances took a downturn after 2006, when it started running up budget deficits, Garland said. In 2006, it balanced its budget for the eighth consecutive year. But after a change in upper-level management and programming — including less of a focus on the wider Central New York audience — the SSO entered a financial decline. “Those four words, ‘Keep the Music Playing,’ were invented by the symphony about two months ago. And at this point, I think it’s impossible to keep the music playing by suspending operations. It’s simply not possible,” Garland said. “Each member of this orchestra that is in a full-time job here, as a musician, has donated $7,000 back to the orchestra since July 1. And we didn’t do that so that it would close down. We’re trying to help.” Garland said the musicians are unhappy that the management team refused to market any shows for next season. If it had launched a subscription campaign for next season, the orchestra could have at least finished out this season and perhaps done better next season. But Garland, like many of the musicians, believes the SSO will not be silenced. ••• Most classical pieces conclude after four movements. But Beethoven didn’t intend for the sixth symphony’s story to end there. With time, the clouds part and the violent tempest clears. The instruments play melodies of happiness, joy and peaceful thanksgiving. And there is the sound of hope, of music, after the storm.

the daily orange

the sweet stuff in the middle

Ever been shut out of the class that you’ve wanted to take for three semesters? We’ve all been there. Here is a small class replacement guide — it takes a look at some of Syracuse University’s more popular classes and offers a substitution.

Substitute CFS 388: “Human Sexuality” with ANT 466: “Culture and Sexual Behavior” This grown-up sex education class fills up quickly, but a lot of students don’t realize that a class focusing on international cultures’ analysis on sex and relationships is also available.

Substitute HPM 422: “Wine and Beer Appreciation” with HPM 412: “Wine Appreciation”

Who wouldn’t like to drink for credit? But when the beer runs dry, some students think all is lost. The “Wine Appreciation” course will fill up your head with enough alcohol knowledge to last the semester.

Substitute EAR 105: “Earth Science” with PED 289: “Backpacking”

College prepares you for the real world, but there’s always time to reminisce about the moments when you thought,


WRT 205: “Critical Research and Writing”

The WRT 205 course — or its WRT 209 honors complement — is a solid class and often required to complete one’s degree anyway. With 15 sections planned for fall 2011 between the two courses, students won’t have any trouble getting into the class, which analyzes and practices critical research-based writing. Students must also complete a service-learning project, working in a variety of nonprofit settings, including afterschool programs, preschools and day cares. With a mere 20 hours of service required to complete during the semester, a servicelearning course is one great way to get experience outside of SU without overwhelming students, said Elizabeth Occhino, assistant director at the Center for Public Community Service. Students learn what goes into a teaching day, from the hours and planning necessary to the challenges and rewards. “Scratching the surface may encourage students to take the next step toward teaching or help them realize maybe it’s not for them,” Occhino said.

CFE 444: “Schooling and Diversity”

By The Daily Orange Feature staff

t was always an inevitable question when you were 5 years old — teachers asked it, parents inquired about it, great aunts twice removed wondered about it — what do you want to be when you grow up? Students always have far-fetched visions of their dream job in their elementary school days. Did you want to explore the deep recesses of space? There’s a class for you. Did you long to battle fires or save pets’ lives? Syracuse University has a few options. Pulp’s class guide could help you realize your childhood whims.

The CFE 444 course, taught by associate professor Barbara Applebaum, explores diversity in schools, including race, ethnicity, gender, nationality, class, disability and sexual orientation. The class discusses inequalities based on different belief systems through discussions and the course curriculum. “There is so much I try to do in this course,” Applebaum said. “In general, I try to take my students to the limits of what they think they know about diversity, show them what they think they know does, and then I challenge those limits so that new possibilities open up for them to consider.” The ideas and lessons learned in this class help students to be better prepared to teach in urban schools, Applebaum said. Students can alter their judgment practices after the course to better understand people different from themselves. “If they are white, it helps them to understand how, as teachers, they might be complicit in perpetuating systemic racism, even if they think they are ‘good’ persons and ‘good’ teachers,” Applebaum said. “Even for students of color, my course provides them a way to explain to others their experience by giving them terms to label what they experience.”

Step outside the classroom and get your hands dirty with this one-credit field study. The class, which comes with a course fee and requires no previous camping or hiking experience, will develop your outdoor skills and knowledge.

Substitute HOA 105: “Arts and Ideas” with PTG 203: “Painting and Drawing for NonArt Majors”

Instead of studying the artworks of the Old Masters, learn how to create your own. This class, which charges $25 per credit and is open to non-art students only, will teach you the fundamental techniques in painting and drawing.

Substitute HST 315: “Europe in the Age of Hitler and Stalin” with JSP 300: “Selected Topics: The Holocaust in American Literature” The Holocaust is a facet of World War II that can be studied in multiple ways. Both classes explore the causes and effects of the Holocaust through history and literature.

Substitute ICC 505: “Web Journalism and Innovation” with IST 263: “Design and Management of Internet Services”

It’s never been more relevant — or valuable — to take classes about multimedia and the Web. These two courses act similarly in teaching the design and implementation of interactive Web production.

Substitute COM 107: “Communications and Society” with PHI 293: “Ethics and the Media Professions”

Instead of learning about mass media and their functions, delve into the ethical issues raised by the entertainment media.

Substitute PSY 205: “Foundations of Human Behavior” with PHI 197: “Human Nature”

Can’t get into professor Tibor Palfai’s popular psychology class? Substitute it for learning about mental causation, consciousness and innateness.

Substitute ETS 154: “Interpretation of Film” with FIL 221: “Cinematic Modes of Production”

By replacing the English and textual studies class with this production course, you may gain a better outlook through the study of how different types of films are actually produced.

Substitute SOC/WGS 281: “Sociology of Families” with CFS 493: “Youth and Family Practicum”

The various forms of family life and their societal effects can be experienced in a handson setting with this child and family studies seminar. The course’s supervised internship in the community also develops skills in working with children, youth and families. — Compiled by The Daily Orange Feature Staff

AST 101: “Our Corner of the Universe”

An obvious class choice in pursuing this career is one related to astronomy. Professor Duncan Brown said knowledge of space and the physics behind it is essential. “If somebody wanted to be an astronaut, you’d want to be inspired about space,” said Duncan, who has been teaching the class for a better part of three and a half years. “You want to have a passion for doing it.” Duncan splits up the four-credit class into three sections, which include following the motion of celestial bodies, looking at the early study of astronomy and analyzing how the solar system was formed. Duncan said he realizes many students take the AST 101 course as a liberal arts requirement. Looking at the big questions that surround space helps inspire potential astronauts. “It’s a lot of hard training,” Brown said. “In order to get through that training, you want to be inspired to go and create knowledge. That’s what AST 101 is all about.”

AEE 427: “Aircraft Performance and Dynamics”

If you want to take thousands of tons of steel and jet fuel into space, you might want to learn how the aircraft actually works — that’s where the AEE 427 course comes in. Professor John Dannenhoffer will teach the class for the first time in the fall, though he’s been at SU for nine years. The aspect of the class that stands out the most may be something you didn’t even know existed on campus — a flight simulator. Students will get the closest thing to firsthand experience in an aircraft without leaving campus. “They will understand aircrafts and how they work, and they’ll understand what they’ll sense while being in the simulator,” Dannenhoffer said. Though the class focuses more on airplanes, not spacecrafts, Dannenhoffer said the “Aircraft Performance and Dynamics” course teaches practical lessons that astronauts need to know. “Many of the astronauts started off as pilots,” he said. “Understanding how to control complex systems is one of the key skills that astronauts need.”

BIO 424: “Comparative Vertebrate Biology”

Geared toward upperclassmen with several semesters of natural sciences under their belts, this spring-only course analyzes animals with spinal cords, said assistant professor Marilyn Kerr. Junior biology and anthropology major Olivia Perez, who is currently taking the four-credit course, said students dissect and skin the typical specimens of each class of vertebrates, closely studying different muscles and organ systems, in the required labs. “We’ve been spending the past four weeks working with sharks, cats, dogs, all different animals,” Perez said. The course incorporates embryology, the development of species and their structures. Students deem the subject difficult but helpful in fine-tuning their understanding of animals, Kerr said. “Students who have gone on to veterinary schools have written me, saying that while they disliked all the embryology I put in the class, it was a lifesaver,” she said.

HNR 230: “Scientific Issues and Practice (Zoo Management)”

Offered next fall through the Renée Crown University Honors Program and taught by adjunct instructors Adrienne Whiteley and Ted Fox, this one-credit seminar gives students an inside look at how to operate a modern zoo. Non-honors students can petition to sign into the course, but will only be admitted if the class isn’t filled to capacity with honors students and if they academically qualify, said Hanna Richardson, associate deputy director. The course covers veterinary medicine, training, population management, and animal behavior and welfare, said Whiteley, who worked at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo for 34 years. The instructors often bring in live animals and artifacts, allowing students to observe and sometimes even handle them. At the end of the semester, students head over to Whiteley’s workplace for an extensive, behind-the-scenes tour. Whiteley said: “It enhances the experience to see something live or to see parts of something you wouldn’t ordinarily see.”

HEA 336: “Cardiopulmonary Rescue”

SPM 395: “Psycho-Social Issues of Sport”

If you think sports are all physical, you have probably never played a sport. In fact, you may have not even ever watched a sport. From maintaining your focus in the heat of a game as an athlete to sitting on the edge of your seat as you watch your favorite team lose, it doesn’t matter if you’re in the game or in the stands. There are a million things racing through your mind. Such an intricate combination of communal and mental dynamics in sports makes a psychosocial study essential in gaining a deeper understanding of the way we perceive and play modern sports. Right off the bat, you should know that the SPM 205: “Principles and Contemporary Issues in Sport Management” course is a prerequisite for taking this class. Once you get that out of the way, feel free to dive into a thorough examination of various psychological and social aspects of the sports world.

PED 209: “Adventure Activities”

Having an athletic background helps prepare you for many other aspects of your life. The importance of teamwork and the values of trust, respect and good communication can help you in a wide variety of areas. This class focuses on developing those skills, implementing them to your future field — whether it be athletic or any other. Professor Scott Catucci said the one-credit course is open to all majors and focuses on improving teamwork skills through concentrating on five key principles: cooperation, communication, respect, responsibility and trust. “It’s not always about a competition, really, most of the time it’s about how can we work together,” Catucci said. “The things we focus on are good skills to have going into a job, being able to facilitate activities, work toward building teams and thinking about group dynamics and leadership.”

This one-credit class prepares students to accurately deal with breathing and cardiac emergencies. This class also includes training to help aid victims of a cardiac arrest through an automated external defibrillation. A typical day contains some lecture, said adjunct instructor William George, but there is also a hands-on aspect as he gets students to perform compressions and breaths, as well as practicing on dummies and on other students. He said it is crucial to practice so that, through muscle memory, CPR becomes almost automatic. “It could provide precious care to a victim, where care or the lack thereof could mean life or death,” George said.

PED 291: “Individualized Fitness”

This one-credit class helps students understand the concepts and benefits of overall health and the contraindications of poor health. They also learn about health ideas and fads through tabloids and other media-driven sources. Student teacher Bernard Bush II usually sends notes via email regarding topics he believes are pertinent to health. He said he makes students keep a daily log of all of their exercise, as well as a track of their progress in attaining the goals they set at the beginning of the semester. Students are also given an option to join in on a group exercise session run by Bush. “People should take this class because I think it is a good window into the world of overall health, how it really is,” he said. “Every day I discuss topics with curious students that range from the best workouts to lose weight, dieting and the idea behind nutritional cleansing techniques to combating sickness and disease.”

he Bronx Zoo’s Egyptian cobra escaped from its exhibit in the Zoo’s reptile house on March 25 and slithered into Americans’ hearts. Well, at least mine. When it comes to animals, I’m a sucker. When I first heard of the Bronx Zoo Cobra’s escape I didn’t feel any remorse. Then the cobra joined Twitter. One bite from the Bronx Zoo cobra could kill a human in fifteen minutes. Yet the persona created by the snake’s hilarious Twitter account has made the cobra a lovable sensation proving that, thanks to Twitter, even a venomous snake can prompt a clothing line. With over 200,000 followers on Twitter, the Bronx Zoo cobra’s anonymous Twitter account is gaining enough attention to (almost) quiet Charlie Sheen. Animals looking to break into worldwide fame should look to the Bronx Zoo Cobra’s Twitter as a guide to the fast track to stardom. The cobra joined Twitter on March 28, three days after its escape. The person behind the account is anonymous, using anthropomorphism to its fullest and most marketable effect. Snakes are among American’s greatest fears, but the cobra’s escape has actually led to people to visit the zoo, according to a New York Daily News article. Creating a scavenger hunt-esque series of tweets turned the story of the missing cobra into a large game of hide and seek as the user tweeted and commentated on the snake’s possible whereabouts within New York City. Furthering its lovability, the snake was not been reluctant to tweet its feelings toward other current events and people, such as the YouTube singer Rebecca Black. On March 28, the snake

heart racin’ in my skintight jeans tweeted: “Anyone know if Rebecca Black lives in NYC? No reason.” Later that day the snake took at jab at Charlie Sheen: “Dear @CharlieSheen, know what’s better than tiger’s blood? Cobra venom. #winning #snakeonthetown Also I’m 20 inches long. Just sayin’.” The hilarity of the cobra’s Twitter continued to make the snake newsworthy until it was found on March 31. According to zoo director Jim Breheny in a press conference, the snake was found in a dark corner of the reptile house and is now being held under observation before returning to its exhibit. The snake had its week worth of fame, probably the right amount before followers got bored and moved onto Brutti, the missing Cheyenne Mountain Zoo tortoise. Still, milking the escape for all its worth, the Bronx Zoo has decided to continue their publicity stunt by hosting a naming contest to name the Bronx Zoo Cobra on its website. I can only hope that, maybe, America will name the tenacious female creature Amanda. Or maybe Katy Perry. I’d be cool with that. Amanda Abbott is a junior geography and IST major.

In its 2nd season, ‘Modern Family’ continues streak of humorous plot structures, strong characters By Ryan Parks Staff Writer

a n “Modern Family” really do no wrong? When the series premiered in 2009, ABC finally saved and revitalized the idea of the family comedy, as well as its reputation as a versatile network. After two years, the series still keeps true to its mantra — relatable characters enhanced by brilliant writing will make a successful show. The show is clearly a winner (sorry, Charlie Sheen). The latest episode, “Boys’ Night,” is a prime example as to why the series is so critically acclaimed. The show is transitioning into episodes consisting of only two storylines, as opposed to what used to be three. Fortunately, this connects the three families into one another’s lives more often, creating better humor. After finally fighting the fear of leaving their adopted daughter with a babysitter, gay couple Mitch and Cam buck up the courage to go out for a “guys” night at the bar. Jay, Mitch’s father, ends up at the same bar when he leaves his wife and stepson Manny and decides to join Mitch’s crew. Mitch, afraid of acting “too gay” in front of his father, is hesitant about the idea. However, in an unpredictable turn of events, Jay warms up to his son’s friends immediately, as they all sip appletinis. Jay becomes so comfortable with the group that he ends up agreeing to a date with Mitch’s friend Pepper (yes, Pepper) for the following night. Meanwhile, Phil and Claire’s son Luke has started hanging out with his elderly male neighbor Walt, understandably making his parents uncomfortable. Before getting to know the man next door, the two forbid Luke from spending time with him. It spirals into the couple breaking into the old man’s house. In a heartfelt, happy ending, Claire and Phil find out Walt’s not so bad of a guy. With so many different plotlines occurring simultaneously, I cannot imagine how difficult the show pitch must have been for creators Steven Levitan and Christopher Lloyd (not to be confused with the actor from “Back to the Future”). The series benefits immensely from the fact that it always manages to stay true to the original concept. The writing never fails to deliver, which is hys-

terically apparent through Jay’s sexual innuendos with Mitch’s friends. But what really came through in this episode was the unbelievable strength of each character’s performance. All three related families are just as significant in their dynamic as the other. That’s why the show is so successful. All characters bring forth some level of predictability, so viewers feel like they know each of them personally. It has that traditional sitcom feel, in which we know exactly what Bill Cosby, Danny Tanner or Archie Bunker is going to do, but still find ourselves invested in their stories. Not to mention, though the show is unquestionably funny, it has that soft spot you won’t find as strongly emphasized in “Community” or “Raising Hope.” The well-rounded ABC comedy continues to trump itself week after week while providing its viewers with exactly what they want. The outlandish situational comedy just keeps getting better, as well as the development of its characters. Though only in its second season, it’s safe to say the show’s top status won’t be taken away any time soon.

Syracuse looks to improve performance in draw controls By Allison Guggenheimer Staff Writer

At a Syracuse practice run by Gary Gait, draw controls are the one constant. It doesn’t matter where practice is, or if it’s indoors or outdoors. At some point, SU’s head coach Gait will have his players practice the draw. The Orange has gotten off to a slow start this season Who: Dartmouth in all regards. And Where: Hanover, N.H. for a team that in When: Today, 3 p.m. years past has had success with draw controls, the struggles there are especially alarming. So at each practice, the team continues to work on draw controls. “We’re getting there,” Gait said. “We practice every day, every single day. We’ve been struggling. Our draw people have been working at it every day individually, and we do it as a unit. We just need to gel.” As No. 16 Syracuse (3-5, 1-0 Big East) travels to New Hampshire to take on Dartmouth (6-2) on Monday, it will look to win more draw controls than its opponent. And for the returning players, the Monday game means a chance for redemption after the team’s worst loss of the regular season last year. Senior Catherine Rodriguez remembers last


season’s Dartmouth game with a bitter taste in her mouth. Syracuse was coming off a close loss to then-No. 1 Northwestern and had no focus from the opening draw in a 17-10 loss. Rodriguez said this contest is going to be a “revenge game.” And the Orange’s veteran players have even expressed the importance of the game to the freshmen. “From the opening draw, they took it to us,” Rodriguez said. “We were kind of falling apart on both ends. We couldn’t score, but then we couldn’t stop them scoring, so the deficit just got big. It was honestly a little bit embarrassing.” In that game, SU won only 12 of the 29 draws. SU attack Michelle Tumolo said there will be a little less pressure Monday against Dartmouth. This game is the only nonconference match in a seven-game stretch for the Orange. Syracuse’s next five matches are against Big East teams, and four of them will be at home in the Carrier Dome, a place SU hasn’t played in since Feb. 27. The game out of conference will allow SU to test out the draw-control skills it has worked on constantly in practice. SU hopes the improvement in the draw-control facet of the game will correlate to improvement in the win-loss column. “That’s our transition,” Tumolo said. “That’s what gets us the ball. And if we don’t have the ball, we can’t score.” Players in every position have spent time

The attack’s job is to sprint to the 30-yard line to get any stray balls. The defense has to be ready for stray balls as well, but will look to stick check an opponent who wins the draw. In fact, Rodriguez said it is defender Lindsay Rogers who dominates draw controls from her position on the circle. “It’s like a magnet for her,” Rodriguez said. “The ball just seems to go to her, and she just seems to always come up with it.” But Rogers needs support for the team to be effective on the draw and build momentum. Rodriguez

said it is hard for a team to get going if, after every goal, it loses the draw and concedes a quick goal. The team has had a week and two days since its 11-7 win over Rutgers to work on draw controls. Gait said for the young team, the difference will come from each player finding a role in the unit, something that did not happen in last season’s matchup. “It hasn’t come together, but it’s hustle, it’s intuition, it’s focus, it’s all those things we talk about every day,” Gait said. “And hopefully, we’ll get some better results.”

Syracuse’s offense broke out of its twogame slumber Sunday, jumping all over Duke early and carrying its momentum throughout the game. The Orange scored six first-quarter goals and finished with 13 for the game, more than the 10 goals SU scored in its last two games combined.

Duke took charge in the fourth quarter, outscoring Syracuse 5-0. Fortunately for the Orange, it built up a 13-6 lead going into the final quarter. Duke outshot SU in the fourth quarter 12-2.

SU struggled at the X all night, winning just seven of 27 faceoffs. The inability to win faceoffs led to SU being outshot by the Blue Devils, 42-29. Jeremy Thompson had the worst night of SU’s faceoff men, failing to win a draw in eight tries. Taking away Chris Daddio’s fi ve faceoff wins, SU won just two of 17.

Duke in our season,” Galloway said. And it was a win in which the senior played a huge role, making saves right from the early moments of Sunday’s game. Duke won the opening faceoff, and the Blue Devils drew a penalty on SU midfielder Kevin Drew. It gave them a man-up opportunity on the first possession of the game. Duke junior Justin Turri tested Galloway from about 15 yards out, but the goalie went down to his knees to pop the shot out of bounds. SU was closest to the ball as it rolled out, giving the Orange possession and ending the Blue Devils’ first chance of the game. Duke would keep the senior busy for the rest of the night, firing 42 shots throughout the game. But despite 17 of those attempts coming in the first half, they only mustered two scores in the first 30 minutes. “I think he played well,” Howell said. “He made a lot of saves. I don’t think we shot particularly well. We didn’t change location a lot, shot up high a lot. A great goalie is going to make those saves.” The Blue Devils did manage to score nine second-half goals, and that drew Galloway’s ire after the game. But many of the senior’s 16 saves came on shots right next to the crease, helping the Orange hold off Duke’s late charge. After CJ Costabile won the opening faceoff of the fourth quarter, the Blue Devils quickly moved the ball up field. That led to a chance from the doorstep, but Galloway was there for a stick save to kill a potential momentumturning opportunity for SU. “I thought the shots that went in were good

shots,” Duke head coach John Danowski said. “I thought that you make 16 saves in a Division I game, you’re playing great.” Danowski also praised Galloway for his work outside the net. The goalie came out of the cage to make a reaching, one-handed interception with less than a minute left in the first half. His long clearing pass was stolen away near midfield, leading to another opportunity for the Blue Devils. Howell turned that chance into a shot attempt with 10 seconds left to capitalize on the goalie’s turnover, but Galloway went down to his knees to stuff the Duke attack. And although he did throw the ball away twice Sunday, his trademark long-distance clearing passes were on display throughout the night. Galloway may have been more concerned with Duke’s 11 goals than his season-high 16 saves or his record-setting win total. But although he refused to give himself any credit after the win, he said the record will be something special for him and his teammates in the future. “I have to make some of those saves in the second half,” Galloway said. “And it would have been a little bit more enjoyable of a win. But that (record) is going to be one of those things that we reflect on years after we graduate, and we can cherish that.”

Duke owns X, wins all but 7 faceoff draws By Zach Brown and Chris Iseman The Daily Orange

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Syracuse’s win over Duke answered questions about its offense. But the Orange’s deficiency in the faceoff X brought up another. The Blue Devils dominated faceoffs for almost the entire game, winning 20-of-27 in an attempt to keep possession in their own offensive end. For the Orange, though, it didn’t end up having too much of a negative effect, as SU scored early and often. But as Syracuse enters the second half of its season, these struggles at the faceoff X certainly aren’t something the Orange will overlook. “We’ve won some, but I always think it’s kind of a matchup issue,” Syracuse head coach John Desko said. “We’re disappointed there. I think a few that we did get out, we lost; and in groundball situations, we didn’t pick it up. We have to get better at that.” Syracuse midfielder Chris Daddio took the majority of the faceoffs for the Orange, winning 5-of-10 draws. But he was the exception in SU’s futile overall effort in the X. Jeremy Thompson, who has been SU’s primary faceoff specialist throughout the season, didn’t win a single faceoff. He finished the game 0-for-8. The Blue Devils had plenty of chances to take advantage of its faceoff victories, but luckily for the Orange, goaltender John Galloway didn’t allow many transition goals. Galloway made 16 saves in the game to preserve his team’s lead. And as a result, he’s now the NCAA’s all-time winningest goalie. The only time it took away chances from the Orange was in the second half, especially in the fourth quarter. SU never found the back of the net in the period, taking just two shots. But SU’s 13 goals in the first three periods proved to be enough. And though the statistic was heavily in Duke’s favor, even Duke faceoff specialist CJ Costabile admitted it was more about matchups than the Blue Devils simply overpowering the Orange. “The faceoff game is so much about who you face,” said Costabile, who won 11-of-15 draws. “Sometimes, you just match up really well with someone.”

SU ride key in win Duke defender Bill Conners came just inches away from scoring an own goal. His teammate Terrence Molinari had just been surrounded by three Syracuse attack as he tried to clear the ball near midfield. Tom Palasek and Stephen Keogh both knocked Moli-

But his pass sailed wide of the goalie. It rolled through the crease and just right off the post into the side netting. SU eventually stole the ball away from Duke on that clear attempt, one of seven failed clears for the Blue Devils. Duke converted just 13-of-20 clear attempts on the game, and Desko credited the Syracuse ride as a big part of the win. “When they’re getting the ball back like they were off the faceoffs, to turn around and ride them and keep the ball like we were at our offen-

sive end of the field, that helps us,” Desko said. The Orange struggled to gain possession from the faceoff circle all game, but SU managed to force plenty of turnovers on the ride. And that didn’t lead to many immediate scores for SU, but it did give SU’s defense time to rest on the other end. “That helps our cause,” Desko said. “Especially when they made a save or when we turned the ball over at that end. It helped us. We work on riding quite a bit. And it paid off at times tonight.”

going, as running back Antwon Bailey broke free for about a 60-yard gain in the scrimmage’s first play. The offense scored three touchdowns in its first three drives. But the defense tightened up after those three scores. Later in the scrimmage, Davis recovered a fumble by SU wide receiver Marcus Sales. And when asked if he was pleased with any specific efforts after the scrimmage, Marrone singled out one of his new starting lineback-

After two games, during which Syracuse (8-0) seemed incapable of consistently scoring — combining for only 10 goals — it broke out of its slump in a big way. There were plenty of concerns surrounding the offense coming into the game. The only thing keeping the Orange afloat was its dominant defense, which served as the answer to the offense’s struggles. But in this contest, the SU offense established itself early and often. “I think we were patient offensively,” attack Stephen Keogh said. “I think we worked for the better shots instead of taking the no-angle shots from 15 yards out.” It became clear early in the first quarter that Syracuse found the solution to its recent scoring

Fifth-year senior tight end Cody Catalina was medically disqualified from participating next season, Marrone said Saturday. “We’ve been sticking with Cody for a long time and hoping that he could come back,” Marrone said. “But unfortunately, he won’t be able

to come back and play for us. The doctors have made that decision. Cody’s been great. He’s been very positive.” Catalina suffered a right knee injury and lower leg nerve damage in a game at Pittsburgh on Nov. 7, 2009. He sat out last season due to the injury. He underwent surgery in April 2010 to restore normal functions of the nerve in his leg. The nerve has not fully recovered for Catalina to return to the field. Team physician Dr. Irving Raphael reviewed the injury and determined Catalina could not play next season, according to a release from the Syracuse athletic department.

He was originally recruited as a quarterback out of Ruffs Dale, Pa., in 2007. He played mostly on special teams in 2008 and then moved to tight end in 2009 spring practice. Before the injury, he played in eight games and started in four of them. He finished the season with 13 catches for 104 yards and a touchdown. Catalina will remain with the team next season, Marrone said. He will help coach tight ends, something he also did last season. “It’s unfortunate,” Marrone said. “It’s part of the game. I think you move on. I think Cody’s ready to go to the next step and help us as much as he can.”

drought. Instead of rushing the ball to the goal and giving up possessions, which had been the case of late, Syracuse returned to what it did at the start of the season. The Orange passed around the offensive zone, eventually finding the open look for the right shot. “We like to be like that,” head coach John Desko said. “I think it makes you harder to cover. If you play with a philosophy that one guy’s going to get it done for you and you run into that one game where somebody stops him, then everything stops. It’s great that we share the ball like we do.” That’s how the Orange took down the defending national champion, the Blue Devils. In the first quarter, Syracuse scored six goals. That’s one more goal than it did in each of the past two games. And those six goals came on only seven shots. But while Syracuse scored easily, Duke

struggled. The Blue Devils scored only twice in the entire first half, despite taking 17 shots. Throughout the game, the Blue Devils couldn’t manage to get the ball past Orange goaltender John Galloway. On a night when the Syracuse scorers didn’t have problems finding the back of the net, they struggled mightily at the faceoff X. The Orange won only 7-of-27 faceoffs in the game and only 3-of-14 in the second half. So instead of bad shots and sloppy passing leading to inopportune turnovers, it was the lack of consistency at the X. That only made the first-quarter scoring barrage that much more important. “I think a lot of it had to do with the first half,” Desko said. “We didn’t have the ball that much in the second half. With the lack of possessions we had and the numbers on the faceoffs, to put up 13 goals against these guys is a good thing.” The Duke defense never had a response to

Syracuse and was caught off guard the entire game. Even when the Blue Devils crowded around the crease, the Orange still managed to score. In the third quarter, long-stick midfielder Joel White took a behind-the-back shot that bounced off the right post, but Keogh picked up the rebound, then flipped it in for the score. The Blue Devil defense lost the ball amid the scuffle, but Keogh found it right away and took advantage. For Syracuse, it was the type of game in which almost everything was going right from start to finish. Duke attempted to crawl back from a sevengoal deficit late, but it was too big of a hurdle. That was a testament to the Orange’s offensive patience early. Patience that led to an offensive outburst. “We just played unselfish,” Keogh said. “And luckily, our shots were finding the back of the net today.”

ers. “I think Danny Vaughan made some nice plays out there today,” Marrone said. “I thought he did a good job. I saw Marquis Spruill do a nice job. … Later on, you saw the defense making some plays. I don’t know if they were ready when we first came out there.”

SU uses early offensive onslaught to bury Duke E By Chris Iseman Asst. Copy Editor

AST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The Syracuse offense needed some patience. After sloppy, turnoverprone play the past couple of games, it had to return to what earned it a top ranking in the first place. And that patience started in the first two minutes of the game. SU midfielder Jovan Miller sprinted down the left sideline and got next to the goal, trying to find an open look. It wasn’t there. So instead of taking a chance and shooting, he turned

and passed it to Josh Amidon. And Amidon quickly flipped it back into the goal from the right of the crease. “I think our whole offense, not just myself, has been thinking too much out there,” Miller said. “Under that atmosphere, we really relaxed out there, and you could obviously tell in the first half how relaxed we were.” Patience opened up a slumping offense. Nine different players scored goals to guide the No.1 Orange to a 13-11 win over No. 3 Duke (8-3) in the Konica Minolta Big City Classic at

Galloway becomes winningest NCAA goalie, makes 16 saves By Zach Brown Staff Writer

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — On a night when John Galloway became the winningest goaltender in NCAA history and made a seasonhigh 16 saves, all he could do was shake his head in the postgame press conference. “Eleven,” the senior Galloway said. “That’s the bigger number in this game. That’s not something we pride ourselves on as a defense in letting up that many goals.” Though Galloway wasn’t happy with his own performance in goal, Duke attack Zach Howell didn’t buy it.

“Sixteen saves,” Howell said sarcastically. “Yeah, I guess that’s a bad day.” Galloway repeatedly found ways to turn back the No. 3 Blue Devils’ attack as No. 1 SU held off a late Duke rally Sunday to win 13-11 at New Meadowlands Stadium. While Syracuse’s offense sputtered in the second half — as it has many times this season — Galloway played one of his best games this year in goal. And that performance helped the senior to his 52nd career win, a new NCAA Division I record. “It was a special win to beat

Linebacker ousted from SU program By Brett LoGiurato Sports Editor

Brice Hawkes said he is ready to move on after being removed from the Syracuse football roster on Friday. “Glad to have had the opportunity,” Hawkes wrote in an email to The Daily Orange on Sunday. “Now it’s time to move forward.” Hawkes would have been a sophomore linebacker on SU this season. Sue HAWKES Edson, SU’s assistant director of athletics for communications, confirmed Saturday that Hawkes had been removed from the program. She said she was not sure if Hawkes planned to stay enrolled at Syracuse. As of Sunday, he was still listed as a student in SU’s student directory system. Per his policy, SU head coach Doug Marrone did not comment on Hawkes’ dismissal. Hawkes’ exit comes on the heels of two suspensions in the past four months. Marrone suspended him before the Pinstripe Bowl, where the Orange beat Kansas State in Yankee Stadium. And before the start of spring practice, Marrone suspended Hawkes again. Hawkes returned this week at SU’s practices after Marrone extended his suspension. Hawkes was slated to start at weakside linebacker next season, according to Syracuse’s 2011 prespring depth chart. He is the second presumed starting linebacker to be kicked out of the program since December. Marrone quickly dismissed Malcolm Cater, another starting candidate, after Cater was arrested and charged with burglarizing three apartments on South Campus. Playing mostly on special teams in the 2010 season, Hawkes recorded 12 total tackles in 11 games. With Hawkes now gone, incoming freshman Dyshawn Davis emerges as the likely candidate to take over the weakside linebacker position. He will likely play alongside rising sophomore Marquis Spruill at middle linebacker and rising senior Dan Vaughan at the strongside position. Spruill started at outside linebacker in 2010. That’s the way Syracuse’s firstteam defense lined up in its scrimmage in the Carrier Dome on Saturday. Against the first-team offense, the defense struggled in the early see hawkes page 18
