atthew Barnett, manager of Harry’s Bar on South Crouse Avenue, spent seven years in the area, five of which he’s worked at the corner bar. He spends his nights bartending for what he describes as a crowd of “typical college kids.” But since Maggies Restaurant and Sports Bar closed last April, Barnett said he hasn’t seen a noticeable increase in the number of patrons who come in. Though new faces might drop by every now and then, the crowd size seems to stay the same, with repeat customers coming in routinely until the next generation of students come of age. Barnett credits some of this with the changing attitudes of Syracuse University itself. “It’s a little surprising that it’s not busier, but I think it has a little bit to do with the university changing,” he said. “In the past five years, this university has gotten much better academically. So typically, if you’re doing better academically, the party scene drops off a bit.”

Number of bars decreasing over six years, popularity remains stagnant The change in establishments on Marshall Street and South Crouse Avenue creates a different backdrop for students every few years. But in the past six years, the closing of four bars has eliminated some choice for students, with only Harry’s, Chuck’s Café, Lucy’s Retired Surfers Bar, and Faegan’s Café and Pub remaining. Now, the vacancy where Maggies once stood holds potential for a breath of fresh air into the bar scene.

Operation Prevent kicks in On April 1, 2009, police confiscated 53 fake IDs and distributed approximately 87 citations for underage drinking at Maggies as part of a state-funded program called Operation Prevent, according to an article published in The Daily Orange on April 1, 2009. On April 15, the Liquor Authority suspended the bar’s liquor license and the business was shut down, according to The Daily Orange in an article published April 16. The space is currently up for sale. So far, the 2009-10 academic year has gone without an Operation Prevent crackdown.

Marriage and family therapy department changes location By Rebecca Kheel Asst. New Editor

To provide a larger, more technologically advanced working environment for students, the department of marriage and family therapy in the College of Human Ecology began the process of moving to an off-campus location Monday. “It’s a great opportunity for the students to be able to train at a place and have access to knowledgeable

health staff right on-site,” said Thom deLara, the chair of marriage and family therapy. The department, which i ncludes t he G oldberg Couple and Family Therapy Clinic, is leasing space from Liberty Resources, a Central New York human services agency, at 1045 James St. The department was previously located at 426 Ostrom Ave. At the Goldberg clinic,

students in marriage and family therapy master’s or doctorate programs provide counseling under the supervision of faculty to families, couples and individuals who are having difficulties including relationship trouble, problems with children, and struggles with depression and anxiety. The new building will house the clinic, classrooms and department offices. The department agreed on the

move two years ago. As part of the lease agreement, Liberty Resources will provide the department with technology such as a “smart classroom” with video - con ferencing and counseling rooms with digital video imaging for clinical training purposes, deLa ra said. Students already began training with the new equipment, he said. see relocation page 7

The side mirror of a Rural/Metro ambulance clipped a student who appeared intoxicated as the student stepped off the curb on the corner of Comstock Avenue and University Place at approximately 11:55 p.m. Thursday, said Sgt. Gary Bulinski of the Syracuse Police Department. Casey Cornelia-Galletto, a senior at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry, was treated at the scene for a head laceration and then transported to Upstate Medical University Hospital for evaluation. “His injuries were ultimately minor,” Bulinski said. “He was taken to the hospital for evaluation, but whether that evaluation was for his level of intoxication or his injuries, I don’t know.” Cornelia-Galletto was treated and released from University Hospital on Friday and was not admitted as a patient, said Darryl Geddes, a spokesman for the hospital. An SPD investigation found that Cornelia-Galletto had stepped off the curb and into the side mirror of the ambulance as it was traveling northbound on Comstock Avenue, Bulinski said.

“The SigEp party closed, and everybody was coming out, and when this kid was crossing the street, I guess an ambulance hit him, and now there’s a puddle of blood.”

Video surveillance from cameras on the doors of Ernie Davis Hall recorded the accident, said Department of Public Safety Chief Tony Callisto. The surveillance showed Cornelia-Galletto crossing the street against a red light and being struck by the ambulance’s passenger side mirror, Callisto said.

Duke prevailed over Butler, bringing a long-awaited fourth national title back to Durham. Kyle Singler scored a game-high 19 points, and Brian Zoubek nabbed 10 rebounds to lead the Blue Devils past the Bulldogs, 61-59, Monday night. The “Big Three,” Singler, Nolan Smith and Jon Scheyer, contributed to winning the “Big One” for coach Mike Krzyzewski, his first championship since 2001 and fourth overall. The win puts him at second place on the all-time list, tying him with Adolph Rupp. The Bulldogs kept the game close, and had a chance to take it all at the end with guard Gordon Hayward’s desperation shot at the end of regulation but weren’t able to come away with the victory. This was Butler’s first trip to the National Championship.

Members argue, slow down voting By Laurence Leveille Staff Writer

Frustrations about Board of Trustees elections arose among Student Association members during a four-hour meeting Monday. Members had to vote at least six times to achieve a majority vote of four-fifths for the candidates. SA has the opportunity to elect two student liaisons onto the Board of Trustees every year. The Board of Trustees is the overall governing body of Syracuse University. With the upcoming SA budget meetings, the elections for the Board of Trustees had to be finished at this week’s meeting. Elections for University Senate and various SA positions were also held, and guidelines for the upcoming budget meetings were discussed. In order for candidates to be elected to the Board of Trustees, there must be a four-fifths majority vote, or at least 15 of the 18 assembly members. The candidates for the 2010-11 Board of Trustees liaisons included Jon Barnhart, SA president; Neal Casey, Student Life Committee chair; Bonnie Kong, a representative for the College of Arts and Sciences and a member

Students protest hate speech against gays By Kathleen Ronayne Asst. News Editor

Nick Haas and members of Pride Union waited on the steps at the corner of Waverly Avenue and University Place Friday for Jim Deferio, who often stands there holding signs that protest homosexuality. But Deferio never showed up. “He was here yesterday, and so yesterday when he told us he’d be back

again today, we decided that we would organize a counter protest,” said Haas, outreach coordinator for Pride Union and a sophomore forestry engineering major at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry. From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., about 20 students stood on the corner holding up signs promoting love and acceptance of the LGBT community despite Defe-

rio not being there as he said he would at his anti-gay protest Thursday. Some students said they were disappointed Deferio didn’t provide them with a view to counter, but the group felt its message was something that needed to be promoted. “I think it’s always easier to protest when you have someone to counter protest, but it’s important what we’re trying to do whether or not he is here,”

said Rae Rozman, Pride Union’s historian and a junior psychology major. Deferio often stands on the same corner and has held up signs that discriminate against other groups such as Muslims, Haas said. “The response from the SU community, and not just the queer community, is that there is another message out there,” said John Crandall, see protest page 7

Gay spoken word artist speaks on experiences dealing with media By Susan Kim Staff Writer

The gay community is not properly represented in the media, said Emanuel Xavier, an openly gay Latino poet and spoken word artist, in Joyce Hergenhan Auditorium Thursday. Xavier recited 11 works of original poetry and answered questions from the audience about admitting his sexuality, dealing with the public’s reactions to his controversial poems and the lack of role models for the gay community. “I hope I can inspire in other people to believe in themselves,

to pursue whatever dreams they may have, regardless of their background,” he said. Xavier started writing poetry in his mid-20s as an outlet for his struggles, he said. His father abandoned him before he was born, his cousin sexually abused him when he was 3 years old, and his mother kicked him out of the house after he told her he was gay. “Poetry was my salvation to express that anger, express that pain, to sort of let it go,” Xavier said. Xavier had a fear of testing positive for HIV, and he said he wanted to leave his poetry behind

for people to turn to if he were to die. Though he was not properly trained as a writer, he said he wanted to encourage young people to express and be honest about themselves. Much of the public and his peers support him for infusing religion and the LGBT experience in his poetry, Xavier said. Some of the more controversial works he recited Thursday include “If Jesus were Gay” and “Children of Magdalene.” Though there are many people who do not agree with his poetry, Xavier said, he is not writing to

please other people or make them feel comfortable. “A lot of the power comes from the realization that maybe I am giving voice to other people who are going through the same thing … but do not have the audacity or opportunity,” he said. The gay community needs role models to provide that opportunity to speak up. Though he did not have anyone to look up to when he was a child, Xavier said he hopes the current gay generation has a role model to rely on. He also said he is intersee xavier page 7

Media need to leave Obama administration alone, let the president flex his muscles


resident Barack Obama and Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu have been dominating the news as usual, but lately it may be for the wrong reasons. March 24 marked the beginning of what many thought would be the end. Netanyahu was supposedly stood up at the White House while Obama ate alone. The two presidents met twice, but for what many would consider briefly. Netanyahu was left to talk among his aides and a few of the White House staff. If the situation







couldn’t get worse, it did. No photos or media coverage were allowed for Netanyahu’s visit — something that is expected for all allied nations. Why the craze then? Netanyahu’s camp pretty much thinks it was disrespected during its visit. Media have called the Obama administration rude and said its actions are the latest “calculated snub by President Obama.” As a Syracuse University student, I am predisposed to be somewhat accepting or tolerant of most views I am faced with. Netanyahu’s view, however, is one that simply can’t be accepted, tolerated or even rationalized. There is no legitimate reason to be upset because there was a seeming lack of transparency during a presidential meeting at the White House. That may sound wrong, but when taking into account the number of good decisions that have steered astray due to public opinion, I am glad this was not one of them. Obama simply wanted a meeting with no media coverage. Yes, he was allowed to talk bluntly and let his hair down,


the art of looking for trouble but this is what’s needed if the Israel-Palestine problem is to be resolved. It becomes apparent that the parliamentary democracy of Israel is actually a cover-up for its neo-theocratic actions. In other words, Israel is committing acts that resemble a state based on religion and not democracy. If Netanyahu expects to expand settlements in the name of Judaism, he should expect to be called out on it by his main democratic ally. I am not one to point the finger, but it looks as if someone is doing something fishy and I think Obama smells it, too. Netanyahu may have had the upper hand with President Bill Clinton because Clinton

lost his health care battle and the Monica Lewinsky scandal didn’t look good internationally. Obama recently made U.S. history by creating universal health care, so for now he has a stronghold on the mediating position in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict due to his positive international image. Obama is using his current power to gain leverage over Netanyahu, and he recently did that with the past meetings. I’d say Obama is doing a fine job by asserting himself and showing the world that Israel can no longer call the shots in a conflict that is overdue for a solution. The media should refrain from criticizing the Obama administration for now and allow the president to flex his muscles in what seems to be an ever-growing aggressive Israel. Obama did win the Nobel Peace Prize. Let’s see if the deciding committee made a good choice. John Sumpter is a junior international relations and Middle Eastern studies major.

Presentation of speaker from business world does not mean SU is ‘sacrificing visionary goals’ Since my arrival at Syracuse University in 2005, there have been commencement speakers that represent an array of disciplines; not one of these speakers has had a business orientation. For this reason alone, it is now appropriate to welcome a commencement speaker from the corporate world. Further, one of the core beliefs held dearly at SU is that experiences improve knowledge and make change. Martin J. Whitman School of Management students in particular take with them the spirits of innovation and transformation that are fostered at SU as they launch their careers in business. That core belief is enhanced by SU’s relationships with all types of organizations — including JPMorgan Chase & Co., a company that has hired and supported SU students for generations. Jamie Dimon, chairman and chief executive officer of JPMorgan Chase, is among the most respected financial leaders in the world and is a major voice in the global economy and its recovery. As graduating students prepare to embark on a myriad of future careers, Mr.

Initiation and purpose of area college meeting is to discuss off-campus issues

let ter to the editor Dimon’s leadership and life experience — including acknowledgement of mistakes made in the financial industry — should be received as important insight and wisdom on how to negotiate an increasingly interconnected and ever-changing world — no matter the industry. The Whitman School looks forward to Mr. Dimon’s prescient remarks and is confident that SU students will all benefit from engaging with this global leader and from SU’s relationship with JPMorgan Chase. Let’s remember: The presentation of a single speaker from the business world does not mean that SU is ‘sacrificing visionary goals’ any more than inviting a world-renowned poet or anthropologist as commencement speaker would be. Melvin T. Stith

In the article “Area colleges discuss off-campus housing,” published in The Daily Orange on Feb. 23, the reason for area colleges coming together was incorrectly stated. The first meeting of Syracuse University, Le Moyne College, Onondaga Community College and Syracuse Police Department representatives was on Oct. 2, 2009, and was called to discuss issues off-campus students face and to determine how each individual institution handles off-campus behavior.  There was not a particular incident in which SU students were blamed for OCC student behavior that triggered this collaboration. In fact, the area college meeting was much overdue and should have occurred years prior. The meetings have proved to be an asset to all involved. The continued collaboration and communication between the colleges and

let ter to the editor the police department is essential. It is a relationship that is birthed from a mutual interest to promote safety on each campus and to our extended communities and support students’ off-campus living experiences and successes. Due to the nature of the information shared, the meetings are conducted in private to support free communication and maintain confidentiality when needed. The committee will extend an invitation to a meeting to those who would like to address community concerns or can provide helpful solutions toward maintaining neighborly interaction and high standards of civility in our community.

But Maggies wasn’t the first bar closed as a result of the Operation Prevent activity. In 2004, two bars, Konrad’s Sports Bar and Planet 505, were closed after fake IDs were confiscated from underage patrons, according to articles published in The Daily Orange on Sept. 9, 2004, and Oct. 5, 2004. Six years later, these names may hold memories for alumni but are likely to be foreign to today’s student patrons. Operation Prevent was created largely to target underage persons using fake IDs, according to the Higher Education Center for Alcohol, Drug Abuse and Violence Prevention Web site. Additionally, cases of extreme intoxication at SU were on the rise, according to statistics from the Office of Judicial Affairs for 2003-06. But more recent statistics from Judicial Affairs show there are fewer violations involving alcohol. In the fall of 2006, Judicial Affairs dealt with 845 cases involving alcohol. There were 811 in 2007, but in the fall of 2008, the number dropped off to 549. Operation Prevent began with $18,500 in funding from the New York State Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee, and the program acquired an additional $4,000 the following year. A collaborative effort, Operation Prevent used services from the Syracuse Police Department, the Onondaga District Attorney’s Office, the New York State Liquor Authority, the New York State Police and the Department of Motor Vehicles, as well as SU. The program resulted in nine raids between February 2003 and 2006. Fake IDs were confis-

cated at multiple Marshall Street locations. The sting operations resulted in the closing of both Konrad’s and Planet 505, according to articles published in The Daily Orange on Sept. 9, 2004, and Oct. 5, 2004, respectively. Amer, who declined to give his last name, has worked as a bouncer at Chuck’s for two years. A lifelong Syracuse resident, Amer used to work for Konrad’s, which was located in the same spot Augie’s Pizza once operated. Now, the space is closed to any establishment that would serve alcohol, Amer said. “When it was open, at a quarter to two there would be a whole mob outside of the bar, everybody leaving and bothering other stores,” he said. “Now, you go over there at two o’clock and the restaurants are busy serving everybody, but I don’t think they have the mess of trouble that they used to have. It was smart move on their part.” After a 20-month absence, the next Operation Prevent raid occurred one rainy Thursday night in October 2007. The raid of Lucy’s and Chuck’s resulted in nearly 100 underage drinking citations for students, costing $300 to $400 a piece, according to an article published in The Daily Orange on Oct. 26, 2007. At Lucy’s, 70 to 80 citations were issued, and at Chuck’s, 17 were issued, according to The Daily Orange. Another former Marshall Street hotspot was Darwin’s Restaurant, but the closing was not a result of Liquor Authority activity. After 15 years on the Hill, the bar closed in the fall of 2006 after the owner failed to renew the lease for the following year, according to an article published in The Daily Orange published Oct. 25, 2006.

A static scene Among the four remaining bars on Marshall

Street, Barnett, manager of Harry’s Bar, said there’s “not a chance” of 1,500 patrons, the combination of the establishments’ capacity limits, coming in on even the busiest night. But considering the number of of-age undergraduate and graduate students, there may be niches that Marshall Street isn’t meeting and clientele that has yet to be tapped, he said. “There are definitely a lot of kids up here that aren’t coming out to these four bars,” he said. In terms of what might spruce up the scene, Barnett suggested a bar expanding to create a lounge — a room where students could have bottle service. “There’s the money up here, it would work,” he said. Brad Johnson, a junior in the Martin J. Whitman School of Management, said the lack of variety on Marshall Street keeps him from heading out to bars on the weekends, though he’s of legal age to do so. “There’s no variety,” he said. “They’re all pretty similar.” The space and age constraints also keep him from partaking in the Marshall Street scene, he said. He suggested a bar that would allow those 19 and older to enter but not drink, which could be more inclusive for the campus community. Randy Tan, a sophomore finance and information technology major, said he prefers house parties to the campus spots because they tend to cost less and he can spend time with his friends who aren’t of legal age yet. “Most people at house parties aren’t legal to go to bars,” he said. “If those are the kind of friends you hang out with, you don’t want to just ditch them, so you go to house parties.” But some underage students choose to try

their luck at Marshall Street, risking a citation or worse if they get caught drinking underage, said Amer, the Chuck’s bouncer. On any given night, anywhere from 10 to 50 minors might try to get in with a fake ID or fake entry stamp, only to get turned away, he said. “We get kids trying to draw a stamp on, and you get the real smart ones that use a differentcolored ink,” he said. But such occurrences are typical of any bar, in any given city, he said. “It’s just the nature of the business.” Amer described the campus bar scene as quiet, with a casual, laid-back atmosphere that’s rarely interrupted by the fights or problems that might be seen in downtown Syracuse. The occasional “loud, obnoxious type” might start trouble, he said, but it’s rare that a fight makes it past one swing before a bouncer steps in to break it up. Matt Hayes, a Syracuse resident who’s worked the door of Faegan’s Café and Pub for four years, said most fights happen on nights of sporting events when students and locals are both present. But it’s not something he typically has to deal with. “It’s about as common as an eclipse, so that’s nice,” he said. Though some might not be attracted to the casual, monotonous nature of college bars, there are many students who return week after week to grab a drink and catch up with friends. Jared Kass, a junior accounting major, said there’s no need for a new type of bar on Marshall Street — his current favorite spot, Faegan’s, suits him just fine. “It’s relaxed,” he said. “It’s like a bar in my hometown.”

The assembly then asks each candidate questions and, if need be, makes a motion to extend questioning. Candidates are sent out of the room for the assembly to discuss pros and cons of each candidate and vote by secret ballot. After a failed attempt to reach a majority vote, assembly members discussed other methods to vote, including by hand. They also considered an exemption of pro-con debates before each vote. These arguments occurred each time a vote failed to reach majority, which slowed down the election process. Taylor Carr, the assistant director of NonTraditional Student Commission, said pro-con debates are important in order for people to make an informed vote.

Liberty Resources could not be reached for comment Monday to elaborate on the partnership with the marriage and family therapy department. The move saves money for the university, deLara said, but he could not provide specific details about how much was saved. Diane Murphy, the dean of the College of Human Ecology, could not be reached for comment Monday to provide those financial details. “The arrangement winds up being much better financially for the university and the college than the previous arrangement we had,” deLara said. Despite the department’s new off-campus location, deLara said there are no worries that students will have trouble accessing it. When the decision was made to move two years ago, the department


polled students to determine whether they had personal transportation to travel to the building. “About 90 percent of the students have their own transportation — actually, higher than 90 percent,” deLara said. “We looked at a number of factors, including how many students lived on that side of town. It seemed like it was a pretty reasonable thing for them.” rhkheel @

speech, but rather to the message he promotes, Haas said. “Even though this is a public place and he technically has the right to free speech — and I support free speech — people have to walk through here to get to the health center, people have to walk through here to get to the School of Education, to Marshall Street, to Whitman,” he said. “He’s spreading horrible messages, and people don’t like it. They’re uncomfortable with it. They’re upset about it.” But Jeff Cappella, a graduate student, said he didn’t agree with the logic behind the group’s protest. He said he felt the group was attempting to limit Deferio’s free speech by championing its own. “You cannot sit there and criticize someone

exercising their freedom of speech, and then when somebody points out the logical inconsistencies regarding the motivation why you’re involved in this behavior say, ‘Well, that’s my freedom of speech,’” Cappella said. But Crandall, agreeing with Haas, said even if Deferio had shown up, the counter protest was not an attempt to limit his freedom of speech. “We don’t want him arrested. We don’t want him kicked off the property,” he said. “We just don’t want students to have to see that every day and think that’s the only opinion about who they are.” Members of Pride Union spoke with the Department of Public Safety the night before to alert them of the protest. DPS was supportive of the protest and said officers would not step in

unless any illegal or violent actions took place, Crandall said. Some members of Pride Union wore purple tape on their backs so DPS could identify them as organizers of the protest if anything got out of hand. A.J. Ellis, a senior business major and member of Pride Union, said the overarching idea of the protest was to show that SU is a place where people can feel safe and comfortable with themselves. That idea was still accomplished even though Deferio didn’t show up, he said. If Deferio had showed up, the protest would have been more effective, Ellis said. “It definitely would have brought more conflict,” he said. “But, I don’t know, is conflict a good thing?”

Concern was also expressed about how voting by hand would affect the overall results of the elections. Assembly members said votes by hand could skew the results because members could be influenced by how others vote, whereas secret ballots allow members to base their votes off of what they really think. The assembly also considered bringing the candidates back in for questioning in hopes that it would give members more information from which to base their votes. Despite concerns, one vote that accomplished a majority was done by hand. Barnhart was the first candidate elected as a Board of Trustees liaison. This left three candidates left to choose from to fill the final open position. At least six votes into the election process, Casey was the second candidate elected into the

Board of Trustees through a vote by hand. Although members considered postponing the elections, the budget meetings will be held at the next two SA meetings, so they would have been pushed back three weeks. Jeff Rickert, the SA comptroller, and Sima Taslakian, the SA parliamentarian, discussed the guidelines for this year’s budget meetings. The assembly serves to either approve or disapprove the Finance Board’s recommendations for student organizations that applied for funding. The assembly will review the budget in four categories: operating budgets, fully funded budgets, non-funded budgets and partially funded budgets. Bills in their respective categories will be adjusted to reflect any changes, if needed, and will be put on a ballot and voted on. Organizations can ask questions about funding after each vote.

Bills SA feels do not have enough information will be set aside until the end of the category when organizations will have the opportunity to explain what they need funding for, Taslakian said. Any bills set aside will also be debated. Common reasons the Finance Board does not give funding is due to missing signatures, missing proof of cost, failure to provide talent and space confirmation, rounding off numbers and assuming the board knows what the organization’s intentions are, according to “Assembly Budget Meetings-Info and Rules,” distributed at the meeting. SA also does not fully fund events for food, student travel, student DJ or artist, prizes or giveaways, book or magazine subscriptions, decorations of any kind, clothing or advertisements other than kiosks.

“Mrs. Edelman has been at the top of our wish list from the beginning of University Lectures in 2001,” Gray said. “She rarely accepts speaking engagements, so it has taken us this long and with the assistance of a friend of Edelman’s who is now at SU to entice her to come to Syracuse.”

“I think sometimes students need a wakeup call to think about kids who don’t have the chance to go to college and don’t have the privileges we’ve been given.” Stephanie Willmott

undecl ared freshman in the College of Arts and Sciences

Edelman is the founder and president of Children’s Defense Fund. Founded in 1973, the fund’s mission, “Leave No Child Behind,” aims to ensure a healthy, fair, safe and moral start for every child and wishes to ensure a successful passage to adulthood with the help of families and communities, according to its Web site. In her lecture she will draw from her newest book, “The Sea is So Wide and My Boat is So Small: Chartering a Course for the Next Generation,” released in September 2008, which asserts that adults are responsible for the abuse and poverty of children. Derek Kirch, a freshman music education major, said he has heard of Edelman’s work

before, but he does not know if her lecture will spark enough interest with students. “She is a wonderful advocate for the underprivileged and disadvantaged children and families in this country,” Kirch said. “I don’t think she’ll find the right audience here at a university. While there are many people who believe in causes like this, I don’t believe that she’ll find a large enough audience for this cause here.” Although Kirch said he does not think Edelman will draw a big audience, he would like to attend the event because he believes the voice of struggling Americans should be heard by all. Stephanie Willmott, a freshman in the College of Arts and Sciences, said bringing Edelman to SU can help students broaden their horizons. “We live in a Syracuse bubble, and we don’t really think about what goes on past the edge of campus,” Willmott said. “I think sometime students need a wake-up call to think about kids who don’t have the chance to go to college and don’t have the privileges we’ve been given.” Edelman’s life has been one of service, Gray said. She said hearing about Edelman’s work and experiences will be beneficial to students and faculty, Gray said. Before working with the Children’s Defense Fund, Edelman directed the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund office in Jackson, Miss., in the mid-‘60s and was the first woman to ever be admitted to the Mississippi Bar, according to her biography on the fund’s Web site. Gray encourages all students and faculty to come out and see what Edelman has to offer. “It doesn’t matter what your academic discipline,” Gray said. “Her message is one of being a giving human being, and it’s one I would hope all of our students would want to hear.”

Tarleton State cancels student production of ‘Corpus Christi,’ which portrays Jesus as gay


By Katie McInerney


Presentation Director

t Tarleton State University, the show must not go on. A production of “Corpus Christi,” produced as part of professor Mark Holtorf ’s advanced directing class, was canceled March 25 after concerns for student safety, said Liza Benedict, Tarleton State’s associate vice president of marketing and communications. “Corpus Christi” features a Jesus-like figure and his disciples as gay men. It was written by Terrence McNally and first performed in 1998 in New York City. People who opposed the play sent threats to the university, saying the play was disrespectful toward Christianity. But John Otte, the student producer of the play, and professors at Tarleton State said canceling the play eliminated the opportunity for the campus community to learn. Holtorf had the final say in canceling the play, Benedict said. He had been informed by the administration of the threats against the students and the play in general, she said. “The professor made the decision to cancel because of the increase in the tonality of e-mails and calls that the university was receiving,” Benedict said. “The professor decided this was not the academic setting he was looking for.” Though Benedict would not elaborate on the specific threats, she said e-mail and phone call threats were alarming enough for the university to forward them to the campus police, who are currently in the process of reviewing them. Otte, the student producer, said he chose the play because it bridged the gap between his Christianity and his homosexuality. “It takes time and energy, and it was important that we picked what we did. I read 45 to 50 plays, and then I read ‘Corpus Christi,’ and I broke down and cried when I read it and believe in what it shares,” Otte said. “As a gay and a Christian, I felt alienated from my church and from the gay community. The message of the play is one of unconditional love and tolerance, and that really resonated with me.” Though Otte said he would have liked the play to start a campus discussion about the relationship between homosexuality and

Christianity and that the play delivers a strong message, he said he understands if the play was truly canceled for safety reasons. “If it was for our safety, I’m not fighting it, but my question is what precedent does this set in which we are bowing down to extremists? Are we willing to give up the First Amendment because someone said they had to? ” Otte said. Despite Otte’s disappointment in the cancellation, he said the university fought as long as it could to keep the play. Prior to its cancellation, the audience for the play was restricted. It was to be performed at 8 a.m. on March 27 for the students of the class and their invited guests. This change was made to “preserve the academic integrity of the classroom,” Benedict said. The president of Tarleton State, F. Dominic Dottavio, issued a statement March 25

to the university community explaining the university does not condone the production of the play and noted that all funds for the play were covered by the student director. The president also included his own opinion in the letter. “My personal reaction is that I see no artistic or redeeming quality in the work,” Dottavio said in the statement. “I believe, as many have opined, that it is offensive, crude and irreverent. It is my sense that there are significant numbers of faculty, staff and students at Tarleton who share my views of the play.”

ment rights and academic freedom. “I have no authority to speak for the entire student body. However, the students I’ve spoken to are more bewildered by the magnitude of the outrage than anything else,” he said. “This was not a main-stage production and publicity was non-existent, so most students were completely unaware of the production until the protest hit full stride.” Community members voiced much more concern than students about the play, Benedict said. In some instances, concerned people were from outside the Stephenville, Texas, community. Tarleton State is a pub-

lic, secular university, but the administration is aware community members are highly religious, Benedict said. “We had several concerned alumni, but they didn’t have the facts behind it and thought the university chose to put on ‘Corpus Christi’ as part of its fine arts schedule,” Benedict said. Moumin Quazi, an associate professor of English, also wrote an opinion essay for The J-Tac. In his opinion essay, written a day before the administration canceled the play, he said he was encouraged by the university’s decision to support academic freedom despite the controversial topic. Quazi said the university had an opportunity to create an academic discourse about academic freedom, but it lost the chance with the cancellation of the play. “The university should have treated this like an educational opportunity and had a discourse about this whole issue — academic freedom and how educated people deal with conf lict,” Quazi said. “The university didn’t take advantage of an opportunity. At a university, we’re about education. This is what people deal with in the real world, but in an academically, educated way.” Although the opportunity to perform the play at Tarleton State was lost, Otte said a theater company in Fort Worth, about 70 miles southwest of Stephenville, has agreed to host the play. “It was going to be 40 people, (and) now it’s going to be done in a 250-seat theater and another venue that is a 300-seat theater,” Otte said. “Because people are not quiet — and those detractors have probably not even read the play — now it will be produced in Fort Worth.” knmciner@

Medical mockery Running the same old routine of romance and medicine, “Miami Medical” fails to add originality to hospital dramas


By Jordan Walker STAFF WRITER

BS’ newest drama, “Miami Medical,” isn’t the kind of show that will make people want to stay in and watch on a Friday night. “Miami Medical” comes off as a pale imitation to what has already become overkill with hospital dramas. Within the last couple of years, medical soaps have surged with newcomers like TNT’s “HawthoRNe,” NBC’s two new medical dramas “Trauma” and “Mercy,” and Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie.” The problem with “Miami Medical” is that nothing new is on the table. All the show has going for it is a good-looking cast and somewhat flirtatious banter among the doctors. In the opening scene, viewers are exposed to several different shots of Miami Beach, a skyline view of the city, shots of sexy young people walking up and down the beach, and

the tune of hip-hop music in the background. Within these 30 seconds, “Miami Medical” is already similar to another show on CBS’ schedule with the word “Miami” in it, “CSI: Miami.” Not that big of a coincidence considering both shows are executive produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman. Bruckheimer and Littman’s experience from “CSI” has heavily influenced “Miami Medical,” and not in a good way. The set-up is the same as that in the “CSI” episodes, yet the premise doesn’t work as well for doctors as it does for the crime scene investigators. “Miami Medical” follows the “best of the best” trauma surgeons in the country trying to cure tumors, help burn victims and rescue people after fatal car accidents. Jeremy Northam, Lana Parrilla, Mike Vogel, Omar Gooding and Elisabeth Harnois round out the attractive cast, which of course is a must for any hospital drama. What this show

does have going for it is the cast’s chemistry together. Dr. Chris DeLeo (Vogel) and Dr. Eva Zambrano (Parrilla) were shown to be catching each other’s eyes more than once throughout the first episode, which will likely lead to a romance somewhere down the road. This season should spice up the show sexually, while going deeper into the surgeons’ personal lives. The ensuing problem now is the show’s copycat image of “Grey’s Anatomy,” which has been the poster child for mixing business and pleasure in hospitals. If CBS can quickly do some tweaking to this show, it could possibly be, in time, the next “ER.” Super-producer Jerry Bruckheimer is attached to the show, which should lend it a good hand. The series needs to take a deeper look into the patients’ lives and how the illnesses affect them, instead of putting so much emphasis on the doctors. It is great to see doctors oper-

ate and become heroes, but medical shows should be about medicine and the patients. CBS has not been able to break into the hospital genre with its numerous attempts with “Three Rivers” earlier this year and a previous attempt with the short-lived 2006 drama “3 lbs.” As of now, “Miami Medical” may be sticking around for some time, as it was the most watched show on Friday night with 7.5 million viewers. Network executives should take advantage of the similarities between “Miami Medical” and “CSI: Miami” as soon as possible in the form of a crossover episode. If done right, this could be the perfect way for CBS to raise awareness of the show and have a great storyline between Miami’s best in law enforcement and best in medicine.

With fall 2010 registration starting, students can mix, match classes to obtain dream job

By The Feature Staff


dvisers might pave the best path for students to follow their major, but where’s the fun in that? Prerequisite courses like WRT 105: “Studio 1 Academic Writing” are great and all, but rarely are they useful for students’ loftier ambitions. Instead of thinking about what might meet requirements or fill up electives, these classes help students fill the shoes of today’s top icons in the sports, entertainment and, yes, even the crime-fighting industries.

EEE 370: “Introduction to Entrepreneurship” and MAR 255: “Principles of Marketing”


ECN 101: “Introductory Microeconomics” and MEE 416: “Mechanical Engineering Laboratory” So your thirst for justice is only rivaled by your mechanical prowess? Try out the mechanical engineering lab, where the fundamental principles behind armor construction are established. Sure, the lab only starts with students building refrigerators and air-conditioning systems, but all future superheroes have to start at square one. Of course, armored avenging is not cheap these days, so be sure to rake in as much money as possible. To gain the entrepreneurial savvy of Tony Stark, take the introduction to microeconomics. While the most basic level of business and marketing won’t leave students ready to be chief executive officer of Stark Industries, they will be equipped with the tools to create their own fledgling enterprises and resources.

= RTN 205 + TRF 422


RTN 205: “Discovering the News” and TRF 422: “Comedy Writing”

Being a news anchor is one job, but being a funny news anchor is another beast entirely. For understanding the fundamentals of broadcast journalism, enroll in RTN 205: “Discovering the News.” Students step out of their comfort zone with a hands-on approach, said Josh Schneider-Weiler, a sophomore broadcast journalism major. “We went to a spaghetti supper at this Catholic school and the teacher was like, ‘Here you are, go interact and mingle with the politicians,’” Schneider-Weiler said. “You had to be outgoing, otherwise you were going to just stand there.” Once that pesky news is out of the way, students can have fun with the comedy writing class. Students find their inner hilarity through round-table writing. “You’re honing your abilities to build comedic elements into a story, find the humor in situations, carve out lean and funny jokes,” said Evan Smith, who teaches comedy writing. “It’s all useful.” — Steinbeiser

PED 261 + CFS 388


PED 261: “Golf” and CFS 388: “Human Sexuality”

Quite possibly the only thing golfing and human sexuality have in common is a liking by Tiger Woods. All aspiring golfers need to know some essentials before hitting the green … and the little black book. PED 261: “Golf” literally puts students in the field as students practice their golf swings, along with other basic golfing techniques. “We went over to the range at the Drumlins,” said Bill Mich, a senior broadcast journalism major. “You’re there to work on your swing for an hour … and after a while, you definitely saw improvement.” Naturally, one can’t be a successful athlete without being sexually apt as well. For all things promiscuous, “Human Sexuality” entertains and informs students with the basics on how “sex, love, relationships and lust fit into their lives,” said Joseph Fanelli, the class’s professor. Sex rehab not included. — Steinbeiser

The EEE program at SU is ranked sixth in the country, so Alexander McKelvie, an assistant professor of entrepreneurship and emerging enterprises, said students can expect to learn a lot from professors who are experienced in the subject. Students may even learn enough to wind up being the next CEO of JPMorgan Chase & Co. Robert Probert, an adjunct professor of entrepreneurship, said the course prepares students for the reality of life. Students can expect to learn the process of developing a business for themselves and the creative aspects of realizing their passions. “It’s not something you may use right away,” Probert said. “It may be later in life that you use the kind of skills we teach.” In “Principles of Marketing,” students can learn about marketing analysis and how to determine different factors that complete a successful marketing plan. “I would definitely recommend the class,” said Emily Ralph, a sophomore marketing major. “It always keeps my interest.” — Compiled by Rebecca Toback, asst. feature editor,


HNR 340: “Myth and the Modern Epic: Star Wars, Wagner and Tolkien” and TRF 255: “Introduction to Writing and Producing”

Learning about the Galactic Republic, Ewoks, elves and all-important rings might seem like the class to take with friends while playing “World of Warcraft.” Instead of just “geeking out,” the course is about deconstructing important works of literature. “I want to look at them with the seriousness that I believe they deserve,” said Stephen Meyer, the professor of the course, in an e-mail. After Lucas created his vision for a “Star Wars” film, the actual production had to start somewhere. That somewhere could have been TRF 255: “Introduction to Writing and Producing.” If future filmmakers want to shoot scenes of the Millennium Falcon entering hyperspace or want to write epic dialogue, this is the class to take. “It gives me a lot of room to be very creative because it gets rid of a lot of restrictions,” said Jillian Mizner, a sophomore television, radio and film major.

ANT 141: “Introduction to Archaeology and Prehistory” and DRA 220: “Introduction to Scene Study”

So you think you can pull off a bullwhip and fedora hat? Then maybe you should take ANT 141: “Introduction to Archaeology and Prehistory.” Taught by SU’s own Dr. Henry Jones, Dr. Christopher DeCorse’s class normally has field trips to museums and sometimes even mock archeological digs. “I see the field trips as a way of exposing people to archaeology in a way that you can’t experience in the classroom,” he said. For any actor, Harrison Ford included, the most essential part of being on film includes understanding what goes on inside a character’s head. “It’s cool to learn how to embody the character learning all the fundamentals of it,” said Lizzy Palmer, a junior musical theater major. The class is built on giving a budding actor the fundamentals to both modern and classical drama. “By the end of a speech or monologue, a character has to change in some way,” Palmer said.

= IST 195 + CRS 225 IST 195: “Information Technologies” and CRS 225: “Public Advocacy”

With Apple making waves in the technology industry, now is the time to start creating sleek and innovative gadgets. Teaching a different topic each week, Jeffrey Rubin, an assistant professor of practice and information technologies, said students will learn enough to understand the basics of computer hardware, software, databases, networking, security and Web design in the class. “This is a course really for everybody,” Rubin said. “We’re in the information age, and every student coming out of college today needs to understand fundamentals of information technology.” After a student creates the next iPad, they need two things: a black turtleneck sweater and presentational skills. Luckily, CRS 225: “Public Advocacy” may help with the latter. The class comes with a heavy course load, but the grading is pretty easy, said Jon Harris, a freshman magazine journalism and political science major. — Toback

HST 341(PSC 329) + PRL 325


HST 341/PSC 329: “Modern American Presidency” and PRL 325: “Public Relations Campaigns”

There’s no class preparation for riding Air Force One, encountering gate-crashing guests or inviting the prime minister of India to the White House. Instead, HST 341: “Modern American Presidency” is a class that deeply analyzes every president since Franklin D. Roosevelt. The most interesting part of the course deals with unexpected political events, said Margaret Thompson, the course instructor. The class details the rise and fall of presidents and “everything from scandals to a national tragedy,” she said. Students actually take on a public relations campaign from Syracuse-based clients in PRL 325: “Public Relations Campaigns.” Future alumni could even create the next “Obama for America” campaign. “Students take what they’re learning and actually apply it to a real-life situation,” said Brenda Wrigley, department chair of public relations.

ADV 200: “The Best Ads” and HPM 422: “Beer & Wine Appreciation”

Madison Avenue during the 1960s is glamorized on the hit AMC show “Mad Men.” In ADV 200: “The Best Ads,” potential executives looking to take three martini breaks with beautiful secretaries have found the right place. James Tsao, chair of the advertising department at SU, said this class is devoted to “the history, the strategy, the success, the failure” of advertising. For students still set on midday drinking, “HPM 422: Beer & Wine Appreciation” teaches the finer points of how to distinguish a sweet Riesling from a dry Chardonnay. “Basically, you get to go to class and drink, which is awesome,” said April Hirsch, a senior advertising design major. Happy hour is every hour in this class, as students learn about the flavor, variances and techniques of wine- and beer-making. “My friends made sure I sat down on the end of the row so I could get extra samples,” Hirsch said. — Swab

Storage, Moving and Shipping Guide 2010 If you are new to storing your clothes, gear, furniture and other goods for the summer – or longer – here is some basic info; Sizes of “Units”: You can rent space for storage in a wide range of sizes. From buying a few small boxes to renting units large enough for 8 bedroom apartments and all their furniture (They can even provide the boxes, shipping tape and labels!). You can even have a storage container dropped in front of your house, for you to load up, and then it is taken away and returned to you in the fall.

Continue on next page

Continue on next page

PRICE RANGE: You can have a couple boxes stored for as little as $50 a summer. However, renting a large unit to store full of furniture will cost hundreds of dollars a month. Generally, the more you do yourself (finding your own boxes, packing, driving your stuff directly to the storage facility), the more you will save. Also, don’t forget to ask for a college student discount when applicable! TIME FRAME FOR RENTALS: If you are renting out space for just a few boxes or having your stuff picked up as part of a summer program designed for college students, you may be limited. You may only have access to your possessions at certain times and you may also be limited on when you can pick them up in the fall. Therefore, renting a storage room by the month usually provides you with the greatest flexibility. If you are planning on traveling abroad in the fall, you can have a storage facility store your gear for 6 months or longer! EXTRAS! Remember to factor in or ask about the cost of packing tape, boxes, labels, and if you are renting a storage room, the cost of a lock!

position battle from page 24

Thomas got into a fight with tight end Nick Provo: “Be competitive, but not combative.” Between each other, Thomas and Anderson have come up with their own mantra. Each recited it multiple times after practice Monday. It’s advice they trade throughout their fight for the No. 2 cornerback position: “May the best man win.” At practice on Monday, both Thomas and Anderson played like the same man, like two 6-foot, 180-pound mirror-images from southeast Florida. Over the course of the last hour and a half of practice, the receivers both Thomas and Anderson matched up against were thrown to just a handful of times. Only once was either Anderson or Thomas burned deep from that cornerback position. Anderson gave up a 40-yard reception to transfer wide receiver Aaron Weaver. But Anderson made up for it several plays later, as he recovered to bat a pass out of rising junior wide receiver Marcus Sales’ hands. “At first, it was like we had to be brothers because we both came in together,” Thomas said. “We didn’t know what was going to happen.” If you ask Syracuse’s No. 1 receiver, Alec Lemon, he’ll tell you the same thing Thomas and Anderson recite. To Lemon, Thomas and Anderson resemble each other. Sometimes, even too much for the rising sophomore Lemon to realize the difference at the line of scrimmage. For the receiver, it has become the equivalent of a guessing game. “With them switching in and out it’s kind of hard,” Lemon said. “Going to the left side, I see Da’Mon Merkerson, and then going to the right side, I see (Thomas). And the next series I’m coming in and seeing (Anderson). So with them coming in, I give them each a different technique.”

But once Lemon breaks his teammates down, the differences between Anderson and Thomas finally begin to surface. The mirror reflecting the two defensive backs from Florida becomes a little foggier. Lemon notes that Thomas, his roommate, forces receivers to the outside more, always shading them to the sideline, whereas Anderson plays Lemon straight up. Lemon also cites Thomas’ strength –– especially his hand strength –– as an attribute. Anderson’s greatest attribute, Lemon feels, is his quick feet. It is that pair of quick feet for Anderson that allows the cornerback to face Lemon at a straight 180-degree angle. It’s a distinct difference in angles between the two that keeps Lemon on his toes as he shifts his technique when lined up against Thomas versus Anderson. It is that element of surprise between Thomas and Anderson that the two cornerbacks hope will enable them both to see a large majority of time on the field this fall. “At the end of the day, we are both going to go out and play,” Anderson said. “Just because one of us is starting doesn’t mean the other one isn’t going to play. So let the best man win.” But there it is again, that mantra between Thomas and Anderson of the “best man winning.” And by the start of the 2010 season, there has to be a “best man” who will have won the spot. With the return of injured rising senior safety Max Suter, injured rising junior cornerback Kevyn Scott and rising sophomore defensive back Dorian Graham, the fate of both Thomas and Anderson is cut and dry. Only one can start at cornerback. But until that decision is made, both Thomas and Anderson will recite the same thing to each other. Said Anderson: “Like Phillip said, may the best man win.”

Orange softball drops 2-of-3 to conference rival Georgetown For the Syracuse softball team, this weekend’s trip to Georgetown didn’t go according to plan. After expecting to take care of business quite easily, the Orange (15-15, 1-2 Big East) dropped two out of three games to the Hoyas (14-17, 4-2 Big East). In game one on Friday, SU came out strong with a pair of runs in the top of the first and four more in the top of the third. Scoring was highlighted by a two-run single from junior third baseman Hallie Gibbs and a two-run home run from sophomore catcher Lacey Kohl, her first of the season.   The Orange led 6-2 after its half of the third but was held scoreless throughout the rest of the game. The Hoyas scored four unanswered runs to finally tie it up in the bottom of the seventh. The game went into extra innings, and a base hit in the bottom of the ninth won it for the Hoyas, 7-6.   Georgetown’s offense carried over into game two with a pair of runs in the bottom of the first. Veronica Grant, Morgan Nandin and Stephanie Watts each ripped doubles in the top of the third to tie the score at 2-2.   But the Hoyas’ offense was consistent all game long. Georgetown scored runs in four straight innings to put the game away easily, 8-4. 

Game three on Saturday saw the same Orange team that beat Buffalo twice last week, as SU cruised to a 6-0 win. Freshman Stacy Kuwik threw her second one-hitter of the season. Kuwik struck out four and didn’t allow a Hoya to move past second base all game long. SU jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first. Kuwik helped her own cause later with her first home run of the season. Gibbs also homered in the game.  Overall, Gibbs had a standout weekend for the Orange. She went 8-for-11 at the plate in the three games with one home run and nine runs batted in. Lisaira Daniels was strong as well with five hits and four runs scored.  Syracuse currently sits tied for 10th place in the Big East and hosts St. John’s in a doubleheader on Wednesday.


Yet something held him back. “In those two years, besides lacrosse, I built my life here,” Cavalieri said. “It sucks not playing when you know you could play somewhere else and you could do well somewhere else.” Cavalieri understands why the other two goalies chose to transfer. Especially Coluccini. He actually started for two seasons. Cavalieri said he doesn’t know if he could have stomached becoming a backup after tasting success. He stayed because his brother, Lincoln, plays for Syracuse. Because he had the opportunity to win at Syracuse. Because he felt a sense of loyalty to Syracuse. Family, winning, loyalty — three things fans wish all athletes thought about when making their decisions. They usually don’t. Cavalieri did. That’s why seeing him succeed last spring on such a grand stage was so satisfying for everybody around the Orange lacrosse program. With Galloway sick with the flu, Cavalieri stepped in for his first and only career start in the NCAA tournament quarterfinals

from page 24

understandable decision and something he considered “all the time” at the beginning of his career at SU. Current starter John Galloway said he is convinced Cavalieri would start on every team on Syracuse’s schedule, and that he is the “best backup in the nation.” But Cavalieri has stuck it out. Never complaining. Never holding a grudge (Galloway called Cavalieri one of the closest friends he has ever had). Never publicly criticizing the starter or lobbying for more playing time, even if in his heart he believed he could contribute. The opportunity to transfer just never presented itself. He considered leaving after his freshman year but figured he needed to give it at least another season. In his sophomore year, he entered training camp with a shot to earn the starting job but lost to Galloway. That was when it dawned on him his chance to start had passed. Cavalieri said he gave the notion of transferring “more than a passing thought.”

Women’s lacrosse No. 9 Syracuse defeated No. 17 Boston University 17-11 Saturday to open a three-game road trip with a victory. The Orange (6-3) was down quickly 2-0 before it drew even with two goals by freshman attack Michelle Tumolo. With the game tied 6-6, Christina Dove scored at the 13:13 mark in the first half to ignite a four-

goal run going into halftime. Dove tallied six goals on the day and extended her consecutive games with a goal streak to 48. SU got five-point performances from the attacking tandem of Tumolo and Tee Ladouceur. Tumolo had three goals to go along with two assists, while Ladouceur had two goals and three assists. The Orange had seven players score a point, including six of those players with at least two points. Senior Halley Quillinan had a hat trick on the day with an assist on the side. SU outshot the Terriers by a 28-22 margin on the game. Boston University’s last lead in the game would be with 16:29 left in the first half at 5-4 before SU’s Tegan Brown scored her first of two goals on the game. Quillinan would score on two free-position shots to give the Orange a one-goal lead. The Terriers (5-6) could only draw to within two goals in the second half. Dove responded with a goal in each of those situations. SU ended the game with a 5-1 run. The Orange will face Connecticut on Friday at 4 p.m.

Track and field

Texas. Of the nine athletes sent to Austin, two managed to place in the top 10 in their events. Graduate student Michael LeBlanc led the way, garnering a time of 10.49 in the 100-meter dash, good for eighth place. Graduate student Bernard Bush finished ninth in the long jump with a 7.25meter leap.  Senior Lorraine Hill narrowly missed a top-10 finish, coming in 12th place in the javelin throw with a mark of 42.15 meters.  SU had a strong showing in the men’s 4x100meter relay, finishing sixth out of 30 schools.  This was SU’s first time participating in the Texas Relays in recent memory.  Schools in Texas and the surrounding areas dominated the meet. However, Syracuse had a strong showing despite being relatively new to the event.  SU heads to Arizona this weekend to take part in the Arizona State Sun Angel meet in Tempe, while senior Uhunoma Osazuwa will compete at the Sea Relays in Tennessee looking for a top finish in the heptathlon event.  Compiled by staff writers Michael Cohen, Rachel Marcus and Andrew Tredinnick.

The Syracuse track and field team held its own at this weekend’s Texas Relays in Austin,

against Maryland. He was spectacular, making 14 saves and propelling Syracuse into the final four. SU ultimately won its second consecutive national title, partially because of Cavalieri’s stellar performance. “He may be the second-most important player on the team,” Desko said. “He showed that last year. He had his best performance when we needed him most.” When Cavalieri graduates in May, he says, he will look back at his college career with peace and contentment. He used to worry he would regret not transferring. The chance to play competitive lacrosse only lasts so long. Playing so well against Maryland last year

helped curb that fear. That one game made it all worth it. “I tell myself every day, ‘I got the once chance I needed,’” he said. “I knew I could prove it on the field. All I needed was a shot.” Still, Cavalieri dreams about one more opportunity — Senior Day, perhaps. Just one more game before his lacrosse career ends for good. Cavalieri deserves that chance. Here’s hoping he gets it. Jared Diamond is the sports columnist for The Daily Orange, where his column appears weekly. He can be reached at jediamon@

Keogh tallies 100th career point in victory By Zach Brown Asst. Copy Editor

To Stephen Keogh, it was a garbage goal. He was simply turning an easy opportunity into an eye-pleaser. “I don’t think I really needed to throw it behind the back, but I kind of wanted to make it a little bit flashy,” Keogh said. “It was there, and I didn’t really look where it went. But luckily, it went in.” For Keogh, though, it was the next one that would really get everyone’s attention. On his next tally, Keogh netted his 100th career point. Despite the fact that Syracuse’s 15-8 win over Albany will be remembered as the program’s 800th, the attack reached his own milestone in scoring a point in his 30th straight game. After adding one more goal in the fourth quarter, the junior has 91 goals and 10 assists in his 44-game career. But before the feat was announced over the Carrier Dome loudspeakers and fans rose to their feet for a standing ovation, Keogh had no idea why. “I actually did not know that. I kind of wish I had a little bit more assists,” Keogh said, drawing some laughter out of his teammates at the podium. “But it’s cool to get 100 points, and hopefully I keep going.” The vast majority of those points have come on the current scoring streak, which extends all the way back to his freshman year and is

In the win, Keogh scored three goals and added an assist, reaching a personal achievement in the process by recording his 100th career point. Keogh hasn’t exactly been struggling to keep that streak alive. In 25 of those 30 games, he has scored at least twice. The junior doesn’t typically do a lot of dodg-

ing to create for himself. He will scoop up a rebound and put it back in the goal, as he did in the first quarter against the Great Danes. Or he takes a pass from his teammates and finishes it

off, like he did for his 100th career point. As midfielder Josh Amidon worked behind the net in the third quarter, Keogh’s defender lost his footing in front of the net. And that’s all it took. Amidon saw Keogh move into open space to the right of the net and dished it out to the attack. Keogh caught the ball, wound up and ripped a low shot past Albany goalie John Carroll to reach the century mark. But even with the behind-the-back goal and 100th career point, SU head coach John Desko thought Keogh’s day could have been even bigger. After all, the junior leads the Orange with 22 goals this year and scored 49 last season — tied for the seventh-best single-season total in Syracuse history. Desko expects Keogh to finish off most of the opportunities he gets, and he seems to remember when the attack doesn’t capitalize.

“I thought he could have had a couple more today,” Desko said smiling. “But he threw one into the goalie’s stick, and the goalie made a great save on him, too.” The head coach’s expectations for Keogh may be high, but he knows how big of an asset the junior is to the Orange. The rest of the offense sees it, too. They know they can probably count on Keogh for at least a score in every game — he hasn’t failed to do so since his freshman year. “It’s awesome, you know,” Amidon said of playing with Keogh. “Especially if we’re having (an opponent) that’s having a good game, you always can count on Keogh — either garbage goals or just him being himself inside and creating something. It’s awesome just playing with somebody like that who can do anything.” zjbrown@

Milestone With 7-point victory over Great Danes, Syracuse becomes 2nd-ever program to reach 800-win mark

By Brett LoGiurato



ax Bartig, Josh Amidon and Jovan Miller took their places at the podium following the Syracuse men’s lacrosse team’s victory over Albany on Saturday. Sitting beside media regular Stephen Keogh, the three members of the SU midfield shared a bag of Skittles, happy to fi nally sit in the spotlight. For Bartig, the overdue recognition for his midfield unit had fi nally come. “I think (our hard work) is starting to show,” Bartig, a senior, said. “Previous games, we’ve kind of been loaded on the attack end in scoring and people have been saying some stuff about why the midfield isn’t scoring. I think today showed we were pretty balanced out there.” It was the midfield that shined brightest for the No. 3 Orange (7-1, 2-0 Big East) Saturday afternoon, leading SU to a 15-8 victory over Albany (2-7, 1-0 America East) in front of a crowd of 5,229 inside the Carrier Dome. The victory marked the 800th win in Syracuse program history, an achievement only Johns Hopkins’ lacrosse program can match. As a player, assistant coach and now head coach, John Desko has witnessed more than half of them — he’s been with the program for 405 of its 800 wins. “To be part of that tradition as an assistant coach and head coach, and to see it all, it’s

important,” Desko said. “I’ve been able to see the progression of Syracuse lacrosse from being the bottom of the barrel to coming up to be one of the teams of this era. To have this consistency … I just feel I have a great appreciation of where it is and where it’s been.” Coming into the season, questions surrounded the unit. Who would replace Matt Abbott? Dan Hardy? Pat Perritt? The Orange midfield answered those questions the same way it has at each team’s turnover in Desko’s coaching reign — through consistency. Consistency in the form of nine goals from the midfield position. Consistency in the form of an all-around effort, where the SU midfield harassed its Albany counterparts all day and constantly forced the Great Danes into turnovers. And consistency in the form of the midfield leading Syracuse to its latest victory in a long line. “We just go out there and try to play,” Miller said. “It just so happens that we had a great game midfield-wise. I think it’s just collective. I think we just don’t care who’s putting the ball in the back of the net as long as we’re scoring and as long as we’re winning.” Forty-nine seconds into the game, Orange midfielder Jeremy Thompson forced a turnover on an attempted Albany clear. Taking only a few steps, he bounced a shot past Great Dane

With the win, SU reached a program milestone 800th victory in its history. goaltender John Carroll to give Syracuse a 1-0 lead, one from which it would never look back. It was a similar premise for the entire afternoon — ride Albany on its clearing attempts, force turnovers and create scoring opportunities. And the Orange followed that plan to a T. Syracuse created 25 Albany turnovers and forced the Great Danes into a dismal 63 percent (17-of-27) on clearing opportunities. The midfield was responsible for much of it. Whether it was Miller making a play by knocking the ball out of a Great Danes’ stick or co-captain Joel White scooping up ground ball after ground ball — fi nishing with six on the day — the midfield was always in the middle of the action. “I think when we did lose the ball, we weren’t turning around and running back on defense or substituting everybody out,” Desko

Three for Bartig. Two for Amidon. Two for Miller. To Bartig, it’s just a culmination of all that work fi nally coming together on the field. The work that has led to a balanced, consistent midfield once again. “We’ve been working a lot together on and off the field,” Bartig said. “I think it’s starting to show.” bplogiur@

FAT LADY SINGS 12:55, Third quarter

After an Albany goal to open the second half, Max Bartig put to rest any memories of the Great Danes’ second-half rally last season by putting a shot past Albany goaltender John Carroll. The Orange went up 10-4 and never let up.


Albany turnovers

The Syracuse defense harassed Albany’s offensive attack all day, creating 25 Albany turnovers. It was the third game in a row that SU created 20-plus takeaways.


Albany clearing opportunities

The Great Danes only cleared the ball out of the defensive zone on 17-of-27 (63 percent) attempts, providing the SU offense with even more opportunities to capitalize. Before the game, SU’s opponents were clearing at a 78.1 percent clip.

Desko, Orange players react to 800th win By Brett LoGiurato and Zach Brown The Daily Orange

A small group of Syracuse players looked at one another, deciding who would be the spokesman for the latest historic event in a long line of them for the Syracuse men’s lacrosse program. The Orange had just captured the 800th victory in program history, a feat only duplicated by Johns Hopkins — a school that currently sits at 896 wins. Finally, the oldest at the podium took the microphone. SU’s crew of juniors at the table — Jovan Miller, Josh Amidon and Stephen Keogh — deferred to senior Max Bartig. “Eight-hundred wins for any team is a huge feat,” Bartig said. “That can go toward Coach Desko, toward the players, toward the coaches in the past. It’s just a number. Like Jovan (Miller) was saying, it’s all about the team for us.” Most of the players said they weren’t aware of the impending mark before the game. For SU head coach John Desko, though, it was a different story. Desko has been with the Orange as a player, assistant coach and head coach for more than 405 of the team’s 800 wins. And he took time after the game to revel in the accomplishment of his program. “To be part of that tradition as an assistant coach and as a head coach, and to see it all, it’s important,” Desko said. “ … To have this consistency and to be part of so many national championships and final fours and other championship games, I just feel I have a great appreciation of where it is and where it’s been. To be part of it is very important to me.”

Faceoffs from the other side Syracuse’s faceoff specialists haven’t been kind to their opponents so far this season. Jeremy Thompson and Gavin Jenkinson have each used different techniques to get the Orange possession and win the faceoff battle consistently. Thompson and Jenkinson have dominated in the X and have been most of the reason SU has gained possession on 59.1 percent of the draws so far this season.

alex pines | staff photographer the orange defense collapses on an Albany player during SU’s 15-8 victory over the Great Danes on Saturday. Constantly hassling Albany in transition, Syracuse’s stingy defense led to 25 Albany turnovers and was one of the main reasons SU coasted to victory. On Saturday, Albany’s Matt Mackenzie welcomed the challenge. He didn’t win the faceoff battle, but he had the most faceoff wins of any individual the Orange has faced so far this season. After the game, Mackenzie said the key to his success on the day started with his positive mindset going into each faceoff. “I needed to go in there regardless of who I’m facing, whether it was Thompson or it was (Jenkinson),” Mackenzie said. “You just need to go in there and have that mindset of, ‘You know what, I’m going to get this ball.’ I felt that I did a good job.” Before Saturday, the most faceoff wins an individual opponent had against came from Virginia’s Ryan Benincasa on March 7, when he had 10 wins on the draw in SU’s only loss of the season. And Mackenzie knew he would have to have similar success to give the Great Danes a chance. “Jeremy Thompson has like, five or six goals in under six seconds (this season),” Mackenzie

said. “I went into the game thinking I had to cut down on the fast break. I can’t let that happen, and I thought I did a pretty good job of tying them up.”

Learning from last year When Albany came to the Dome last season, Syracuse seemed to have a stranglehold on the game by halftime. The Orange took a 10-2 lead over the Great Danes into the break. But in the third, Albany came roaring back. The Great Danes outscored SU 8-1 in that quarter to pull within one goal.  Although the Orange did pull out the 15-13 win a year ago, head coach John Desko made sure his players did not forget about that game when they took a 9-3 lead into the break Saturday.  “In between the periods it was all about talking about what could happen and making sure that we valued our possessions and that we stayed out of the penalty box and didn’t make mental errors,” Desko said. 

Albany did score the first goal in the third quarter, but Bartig and senior attack Chris Daniello quickly abolished the Great Danes’ comeback hopes. Just 12 seconds into a man-up opportunity, Daniello hit Bartig on the left side of the goal, and he fired a shot perfectly into the top corner of the cage.  Two minutes later, Daniello breezed by Albany defenseman Brendan Gleason on a restart and scored from just outside the crease to extend the Orange lead to 11-4.  Albany head coach Scott Marr said his team had an opportunity to go on a run with the performance of faceoff man Matt Mackenzie. But unlike last year, it never materialized.  “We pieced a couple (goals) in there again, but they sprinkled some in so we never really could close the gap,” Marr said. “In years past, we’ve gone on five-, six-, seven-goal runs, and unfortunately today, we didn’t have that same run.” bplogiur@ zjbrown@

Cornered Stiff competition between Thomas, Anderson leaves SU coaches with tough decision

danielle parhizkaran | staff photographer phillip thomas (1) is one of two cornerbacks, along with Rishard Anderson, vying for the No. 2 cornerback spot on the Orange’s spring football depth chart.

By Tony Olivero


Asst. Sports Editor

ust days after they had both committed separately to play safety for Syracuse on Jan. 23, 2009, Phillip Thomas and Rishard Anderson met at 3261 SW 160th Ave. in Miramar, Fla. At a Benihana. It was there at the sushi bar the two future SU defensive backs got to know each other. They exchanged phone numbers. They discovered they had some of the same friends, thanks to the 18 miles that separated their hometowns. And for the first time, Thomas and Anderson –– who both stand at 6 feet and are only separated by 6 pounds –– were able to size up in person their


prime competition for playing time in the Orange secondary. “It was like I already knew him, basically,” Anderson said after practice Monday. “Same lifestyle, same friends.” Flash forward 14 months, and the two mirrorimage defensive backs are competing against one another for a starting position at cornerback. The two rising sophomores have been splitting reps through the first half of spring practice at the No. 2 cornerback position in perhaps the most tightly contested position battle of the spring for the Orange. The first week of practice, Thomas saw the majority of the snaps with the first-team defense

opposite No. 1 corner Da’Mon Merkerson. Throughout the second week, Anderson had his turn with the first team. And Monday, the first day of the third week of practice, it was more of the same. Thomas lined up at corner 31 times during the last half of practice. Anderson lined up at the same No. 2 corner spot 41 times. Thomas also shared time on the field with Anderson at a safety position when SU switched to its “Okie” dime defense. As of Monday, both were still jockeying for that starting spot. “Really, I’m not disappointed with any of the players who are playing in the defensive backfield,” SU head coach Doug Marrone said. “All we are trying to do is create that versatility because

we go in with two types of packages.” Thomas and Anderson head into their sophomore years a little more than a year after that sushi dinner with game experience as freshmen last fall. Thomas saw much more time on the field, as the Miami native started three out of 11 games played in 2009, registering 29 tackles in the process. Anderson played in seven games and recorded six tackles. Through the first two weeks of spring practice, the battle between Anderson and Thomas at the cornerback position has epitomized best what Marrone has preached every day at practice. It’s the same thing he harped on last week after see position battle page 18

girls’ best friend ably never come. “You can’t help but think sometimes when we’re playing these other schools, ‘I could have went there and been the star there,’” he said. “I could be playing all the

time.” Cavalieri, now a senior, has been a reserve for SU for four seasons. He has played just 17 games in his career, starting only one. He has accepted his role, fully aware for the last two years he wouldn’t crack Syracuse’s lineup. In a sports climate where athletes’ transgressions and off-field antics dominate media coverage, Cavalieri is a player who deserves praise for doing everything right. If college athletes are supposed to be role models, and I wholeheartedly

believe they are, Cavalieri is the prime example, even if he never steps on the field again. He is an athlete worth admiring, and not because he made 14 saves against Maryland in the NCAA quarterfinals last year. “There’s not a ton of incentive to do what he does and be the backup at that position and get smacked the way he does,” SU head coach John Desko said. “His four years are a testament to the education here at Syracuse. More importantly, they are a testament to his character.”

Two other backup goalies have transferred away from Syracuse in the past five years when they realized they would not receive consistent playing time. Jake Myers left after the 2006 season and ultimately became one of the top goalies in the nation at Cornell. Peter Coluccini, a two-year starter, bolted for Ohio State after 2008, when he dropped from starter to third string on the depth chart. Cavalieri could have taken that route, too. It would have been an see diamond page 19
