Syracuse, Pittsburgh accept offers to join ACC By Ryne Gery


Syracuse has accepted an offer to join the Atlantic Coast Conference, according to an SU Athletics press release. ACC Commissioner John Swofford announced on Sunday that the ACC Council of Presidents voted unanimously to accept Syracuse and Pittsburgh as its 13th and 14th conference members. Syracuse University Chancellor Nancy Cantor said the university’s Board of Trustees has voted unanimously to accept the ACC’s invitation, according to the release. “The ACC has enjoyed a rich tradition by balancing academics and athletics, and the addition of Pitt and Syracuse

further strengthens the ACC culture in this regard,” Swofford said in a press release. “Pittsburgh and Syracuse also serve to enhance the ACC’s reach into the states of New York and Pennsylvania and geographically bridges our footprint between Maryland and Massachusetts. With the addition of Pitt and Syracuse, the ACC will cover virtually the entire Eastern Seaboard of the United States.” Syracuse and Pittsburgh cannot begin play in the ACC until the 2014 season due to a 27-month notice required before leaving the Big East. For the two schools to make the jump, they also have to pay a $5 million buyout to the Big East. With the move, the ACC becomes the fi rst major football conference in the

country with 14 schools. There is a lot of speculation that the conference will try and add two more schools to bring the total to 16, which would allow for two eight-team divisions. Syracuse and Pittsburgh have become the latest schools to switch conferences in a time of uncertainty in college athletics. Last summer, Colorado and Nebraska announced they were leaving the Big 12 for the Pac-12 Conference and Big Ten Conference, respectively. Utah also decided to move to the Pac-12 from the Mountain West Conference. All three programs are competing in their new conferences this season. And last November, the Big East announced Texas Christian would join

the conference beginning in the 2012 season. That move is now unstable because Syracuse and Pittsburgh made their exit from the conference. “It’s nerve-racking for everyone in college athletics,” TCU Athletic Director Chris Del Conte told ESPN on Saturday. “There are earthquakes going on all around us. And we don’t know when they’ll settle.” The conference realignment talks started up again when Texas A&M was unanimously approved as the 13th member of the Southeastern Conference on Sept. 7. The move is being held up because Baylor is threatening to sue, and it will likely become official after the potential SEE ACC PAGE 4

Demetri Martin to perform standup comedy at SU By Amrita Mainthia

By Marwa Eltagouri

Comedian Demetri Martin will deliver Syracuse University some laughs Oct. 12, University Union officials announced Friday. Martin will perform stand-up in Goldstein Auditorium at 8 p.m. in the show co-sponsored by UU and the Panhellenic Council. “He’s pretty well-known for a lot of his different ventures,” said Jamie Berman, co-director of UU Performing Arts. “He has a quirky sense of humor that’s different from anything we’ve had in a while.” Tickets for Martin are on sale Monday at 9 a.m. and open to all SU and State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry faculty, staff and students. The $5 tickets can be purchased at the Schine Student Center box office or online via the website. Martin generated buzz in 2001 on a Comedy Central stand-up showcase. Martin has written for shows “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” and “The Daily Show.” Before entering the world of comedy, Martin attended Yale University and received his law degree from New York University. UU Performing Arts, a division of UU, brings comedians and speakers to SU twice a year, said Amanda Shaw, co-director of UU Performing Arts. The division also sponsors events on campus, including SU Idol and SU’s Best Dance Crew. Martin last visited SU in the Jabberwocky Café in 2005. Since then, Martin has developed a larger following, and there is a new group of students on campus now, Shaw said. Whereas the capacity SEE MARTIN PAGE 6

Upstate Medical University Hospital has been placed on a “watch list” for the hospital’s high frequency of safety concerns, complications and patient deaths. The Niagara Health Quality Coalition, a hospital performance research group, included University Hospital along with 20 other New York state hospitals on the list as part of an annual report card. The report card has been released for the last nine years, said David Duggan, University Hospital’s medical director and chief quality officer. The report states statistics of patient deaths, patient dissatisfaction and complications, Duggan said. Data was riskadjusted, meaning that hospitals with sicker patients would be fairly compared against hospitals with less sick patients. The coalition was formed to create a way of continuously improving the quality of more than 200 New York state hospitals and physicians. The reports are based on the relationship between different diagnosis and complication rates, not by simply counting the number of complications, Duggan said. Reports created by Niagara are based off data released by the University Health System Consortium, a medical center alliance, which said University Hospital had high mortality rates, safety concerns and below average abidance by core measures, Duggan said. Core measures include Medicaremandated processes, such as giving heart attack victims aspirin, while morSEE UPSTATE MEDICAL PAGE 8

LA Giving raises $3 million

crime briefs • A robbery occurred on the 100 block of Remington Avenue at 5:20 p.m. Friday, according to a Syracuse police report. Sharisa Bufford, a senior in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, was robbed by two males Friday evening while at the apartment of her apparent boyfriend, according to the report. Bufford told police she was at the apartment of Michael Smith, 22, of Syracuse, while he was at work. While at the apartment, two other women arrived. Bufford then stated that the group began to play video games and smoke marijuana. About 20 minutes later, two suspects ran into the apartment with their hands underneath their sweatshirts, showing a bulge Bufford believed was a handgun, she told police. Bufford stated that the males yelled for everyone to get on the floor. The suspects collected the three women’s phones before one of the males went to Smith’s bedroom. Both males then proceeded to collect the women’s purses before leaving the apartment. While waiting for authorities to arrive, Bufford told police, the two women who had entered the apartment earlier left due to child care issues. Bufford stated that she thought it was weird they didn’t wait for the police to arrive and that they didn’t seem concerned about being robbed moments earlier. The suspects — both described by Bufford as black, 5-feet-5-inches, 180 pounds and in their late teens or early 20s — stole items totaling $927 from the three women and Smith, the apartment renter. • Two SU students were arrested for petit larceny at 6:15 p.m. Saturday at the Carousel Center mall, according to police reports. Elizabeth Page, 21, a senior in the School of Education, and Laura Napolitano, 21, a senior in the College of Visual and Performing Arts, are set to appear in Syracuse Criminal Court on Oct. 12. • Eleven people were issued city ordinance violations in the university neighborhood over the weekend. On the 700 block of Euclid Avenue, three students were issued separate open container violations and one student was issued an underage drinking violation. One student is a freshman in the L.C. Smith College of Engineering and Computer Science. Another student was issued a sound reproduction violation and an underage drinking violation at 1:25 a.m. Saturday on the 200 block of Walnut Place. And a student was issued a nuisance party violation at 1:30 a.m. Sunday on the 200 block of Walnut Place. — Compiled by Jon Harris, asst. news editor, jdharr04@

Growing interest

The 2011 University Community Harvest Farmers’ Market series continued Friday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Quad. This year’s markets, presented by Syracuse University and the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry, are open to the public and feature a variety of locally grown fruits, vegetables and plants, locally made crafts and other items. Another market is planned for Sept. 30 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Waverly parking lot.

SU receives $1.5 million energy grant By Camille Bautista Contributing Writer

The Syracuse University Industrial Assessment Center received a $1.5 million grant last week to train undergraduate and graduate engineering students in industrial energy efficiency. SU is one of 24 universities to receive the award from the U.S. Department of Energy. As the only IAC in New York state, the university will receive the amount over a five-year span and help up to 75 students conduct free energy assessments for small- and medium-scale industries, according to a SU News release published Thursday.

Suresh Santanam, director of the SU-IAC and associate professor at the L.C. Smith College of Engineering and Computer Science, will lead students into industrial fields in the hands-on program. “Energy efficiency is very, very important for our future,” Santanam said. “It benefits the students, the industry and society at large.” The center focuses on training and educating students through course and field work, as well as provide industrial facilities with cost saving ideas through energy assessments free of charge, according to the release. Admitted students stay in the

program for one to three years. For the first six months, sophomores and juniors who have completed specific engineering courses study calculations and energy efficient measures, Santanam said. Later, they apply learned methods and ideas in the industrial community. The university is among nine other schools that received the highest amount of funding from the Department of Energy, according to a Tuesday release from the department. To assist support for the project, L.C. Smith will provide $250,000 in addition to the award, according to the SU News release. see energy grant page 4

Alumnus discusses problems of urban education By Kristin Ross Staff Writer

Syracuse University’s Maxwell Auditorium was filled with former, current and past teachers Thursday evening, where Dr. Charles Payne spoke about the difficulties in the past 40 years of reforming urban education. Payne, an SU alumnus, was chosen to speak at the School of Education’s annual Harry S. and Elva K. Ganders Lecture because of his familiarity with community schools, said Jennifer Russo, the marketing

director for the School of Education. The Ganders Lecture is part of the School of Education’s Landscape of Urban Education Lecture Series. The issue Payne said his speech centered around was: “What I think we should have learned from the time I got my undergrad degree here until now” in regards to race and diversity in public, inner-city schools. Payne said there is no one way to fix the urban education system, because no school is the same. He said he thinks there’s still a lot of work

that needs to be done to reform urban schools, but it is not impossible. Payne provided examples of studies from different school systems that have implemented urban education reform. One system described parents forming support groups within their neighborhoods. Another system discussed the importance of sending kids to preschools. A further example illustrated the value of giving children responsibility of younger students, see payne page 6

Approximately $3 million has been raised during the last nine months for Syracuse University’s LA Giving campaign. The Los Angeles campaign — part of the larger Syracuse University capital campaign — has raised a total of $54,144,153 as of Friday, said Ellen Beck, director of advancement for the West Coast region and SU alumna. The $3 million was raised after a focused regional fundraising push was made in southern California. The funds will go toward advancing SU’s LA initiative in areas such as scholarship creation and assuring the university attracts the most qualified faculty members, Beck said. Community engagement initiatives, updating research facilities both on campus and at regional and study abroad centers, are also a target of the fundraising efforts, according to the campaign’s website. The campaign is set to end in 2012. Fundraising has been aimed at alumni located in the southern California area, Beck said. An LA regional council was created to reach out to more alumni in the area. The council, which is volunteer-based, is made of a group of loyal SU alumni in LA. Members of the council help with raising capital by working to attract fellow alumni to fundraising efforts. Conveners of the council include SU alumni Brian Frons, president of ABC Daytime, and Sean Carey, who holds a management position with Netflix, Beck said. Jason Blumenthal, producer of movies including “The Pursuit of Happyness” and an SU alumnus, serves on the council as well. The LA native said SU memorabilia was nowhere to be found in his hometown when he graduated in 1990. Fifteen years later, Blumenthal said SU bumper stickers are a common sight. Blumenthal sponsors mixers and other networking events to connect recent graduates with other alumni and help fundraise. Four interns work in Blumenthal’s LA office per semester. He said his involvement with SU in LA, both as a member on the council and through exposing students to the entertainment industry, is his way of remaining connected with the university. see la campaign page 6

legal issues are resolved. Those moves and the one by Syracuse and Pittsburgh on Sunday center on the schools’ attempts to maximize revenue through television deals in college football, according to The New York Times. SU football head coach Doug Marrone said he is excited for the move. “Joining the Atlantic Coast Conference puts us in a strong position for the future,” Marrone said in the SU release. “The ACC has quality schools academically and athletically. I look forward to competing against them.” Syracuse was a founding member of the Big East conference, and Pittsburgh joined the Big East in 1982. In Daryl Gross’ eyes, Sept. 18, 2011, will be a day for fans to think back on as an important one in the history of Syracuse athletics. “Today is a day that we will remember

Though the center has applied and received funding from the Department of Energy in the past 11 years, Santanam said, this is the first time the IAC has received a grant of such magnitude. In past recommendations, the center has been able to save companies up to $100,000 a year, Santanam said. Partnered companies have mainly included auto and manufacturing industries.

for years to come,” said Gross, SU’s director of athletics, in the SU release. “We are truly excited that academically and athletically we will be a member of the ACC, one of the nation’s premier collegiate athletic conferences. As ‘New York’s College Team,’ we plan to compete at the highest level across all of our sports and help to enhance this great conference.” Syracuse will leave arguably the best basketball conference in the country in recent years for another historically competitive conference. Rather than facing traditional rivals Georgetown and Villanova, the Orange will compete with powerhouses Duke, North Carolina and Maryland. That makes the move attractive to SU head basketball coach Jim Boeheim. “In the ever-changing landscape of collegiate athletics, each school has to find the best fit. The Atlantic Coast Conference has a great basketball tradition, and we look forward to contributing to that,” Boeheim said in the SU release. The other administrators and coaches in

the ACC have expressed excitement in adding Syracuse and Pittsburgh. Duke basketball head coach Mike Krzyzewski, who had Boeheim on his USA basketball staff as an assistant, thinks the two schools and their rich traditions will bolster the ACC. “The addition of two prestigious academic institutions such as the University of Pittsburgh and Syracuse University, coupled with their great tradition in athletics, is a real coup for the ACC,” Krzyzewski said in a press release. Cantor, SU’s chancellor, believes the move is the best for the school both academically and athletically. “We are very excited to be joining the ACC. This is a tremendous opportunity for Syracuse, and with its outstanding academic quality and athletic excellence, the ACC is a perfect fit for us,” Cantor said in the SU release. “The ACC is home to excellent national research universities with very strong academic quality and is a group that Syracuse will contribute to significantly and benefit from considerably.”

director of engineering management at L.C. Smith, said he hopes the grant will allow them to expand to different institutions such as commercial properties, hospitals and schools. “Because there are only 24 centers, that’s an elite sort of fraternity, you might say, of people who do this,” he said. “It gives us more visibility with the state government and congressional officials.” Laura Steinberg, dean of L.C. Smith, said she believes the center allows the university to contribute to a more sustainable manufacturing environment in the state. “This grant further strengthens our commitment to providing education in energy

systems and to our focus on furthering research to reduce our dependency on traditional forms of energy,” Steinberg said in the SU News release. Santanam said he hopes to engage students from colleges outside L.C. Smith. Though the IAC primarily trains engineering students in technical work, there are also available opportunities in information, website and communications preparation. Said Santanam: “Not only will these students have a degree, but they will also have this training as energy efficiency experts and can contribute a lot more to their future employers.”

Law enforcement’s use of GPS invades privacy


he Supreme Court will soon begin the process of ruling whether police are allowed to use GPS surveillance without a warrant to track suspects. Over the past several years, police have made use of the technology without acquiring warrants. This use has caused privacy advocates to ask if this technique is legal. The Fourth Amendment specifies that people have the right to privacy. Police must have probable cause to conduct a search, and the search must have an appropriate scope. Based on these principles, warrantless GPS surveillance represents an overreach in police power. The method threatens individual privacy. Regardless of the gains police may make by tracking, proper procedure must be followed. Federal courts have not consistently ruled that privacy is most important. In 2010, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of the Drug Enforcement Agency, which planted a tracker on a man’s car without a warrant. The man was suspected of growing marijuana. The DEA found the crop by following the tracker, which was placed on the car when it was parked on the street. The court ruled that police may place GPS surveillance on cars not in garages without a warrant. The ruling implies that there is no expectation of privacy for cars parked on the street or in one’s driveway. Other courts have issued rulings that disagree. A Washington, D.C., appeals court, ruled that warrantless GPS surveillance constitutes an illegal search. In this case, a suspected cocaine distributor’s car was monitored for 28 days. The scope of the search, under the Fourth Amendment, seems to be far too great. Douglas H. Ginsburg, a judge hearing the case, wrote in his opinion: “A reasonable person does not expect anyone to monitor and retain a record of every time he drives his car, including his origin, route, destination, and each place he stops and how long he stays there; rather, he expects News Editor Editorial Editor Feature Editor Sports Editor Presentation Director Photo Editor Copy Chief Art Director Development Editor Special Projects Editor Asst. Presentation Director Asst. News Editor Asst. News Editor Asst. News Editor


to the left, to the left each of those movements to remain disconnected and anonymous.” Those in favor of allowing the practice tend to dismiss privacy concerns. Their interest lies in letting police investigate in the least obstructed manner. Rather than waiting to gather enough evidence to require a warrant, simply using GPS allows for greater ease in finding evidence. These individuals falsely presume that the technology will only be used with discretion. In so arguing, they place too much trust in the police. It is a leap to assume that an individual's property becomes public space when left unsecured.Nobody should need to have a detector to routinely check their vehicle for trackers. When people drive, they assume they are not being monitored. The Constitution exists, in part, to check the government from over-reaching its authority. Should tracking of an individual be needed, police should have no difficulty proving probable cause to get a warrant. Alternatively, police may decide to conventionally track an individual without technological assistance. In this case, there is the chance that a suspect may realize he or she is being followed. If the government is allowed to track any person for any reason, even if well intended, people’s privacy is severely compromised. Great potential for abuse exists. Police must obtain warrants to prevent abuse. If the court does not rule in favor of preserving privacy, we will enter into a radically different country with completely new rules on how much power the government has.

Debate policy could add conversation


ew rules will guide future debate at University Senate meetings. The new senate moderator, Ian MacInnes, will limit any person wanting to contribute to a debate or discussion to three minutes. That person can speak a second time only if everyone else who wishes to offer an idea has spoken. MacInnes said he hopes the changes will better facilitate conversation and give voice to a diversity of perspectives. The changes are meant to discourage one person or perspective from dominating the discussion. Most town halls and public meetings enforce time limits on public comment, and the changes certainly have the potential to speed conversation and keep it from becoming repetitive or hostile. But the changes may not necessarily facilitate a range of perspectives — an adminis-

EDITORIAL by the daily orange editorial board trative bloc, which often represents a single view, may overwhelm the concerns of a single campus member. Maxwell Auditorium, where the senate holds its meeting, begins to thin when discussions stagnate and circle around two or three people refusing to see eye to eye. Senate meetings gather a range of faculty, staff and students and provide a wonderful and constructive space for community engagement. But, of course, pushing a conversation that a small minority wishes to have is unfair and unproductive to the senate. It is hoped the new changes will end these exclusive discussions. But meetings have held plenty of constructive and lively conversations in the past several years, ranging from internship policies to

concerns about library space. But debate occasionally stagnates as faculty and student questions — or sometimes criticisms — elicit defensive responses from administrators. Judging by this past, the new changes have the potential to downplay a concern of a campus member. That single student or professor will have just one chance to talk before three or four administrators respond, all allowed time of their own but oftentimes articulating the same perspective. More than a dozen voices at last semester’s March USen meeting offered comment when debate arose about Syracuse University’s academic competitiveness; such a conversation clearly exemplifies one worth having because it kept so many people engaged. Despite the new rules, it is hoped conversation of mass and diverse interest will continue to run without inhibition.

such as fourth-graders reading to kindergartners once a week. In this study, Payne noted how the problem students performed as better role models for the younger kids than the good students. After comparing all of these studies, Payne said he could sum up what he found into one sentence: “It isn’t about the program; it’s about the organization of the school itself.” During urban reform, Payne said trust is necessary between the principal, teachers and


“It’s my college. It’s where I got all the tools to build a career,” he said. Douglas Frye, another SU alumnus who serves on the regional council, said his involvement with the council includes trying to reconnect alumni who have lost touch with the university. Frye, a 1974 graduate of SU’s College of Law, has been involved with the law school since he graduated. He said fellow alumni typically respond well to fundraising requests. “I think, generally, people are receptive and, generally, people have good memories of their years at Syracuse,” he said. Beck, director of advancement, said she personally meets with SU alumni for lunch on a daily basis in an attempt to connect the graduates’ passions with initiatives on campus. Campaign efforts are not limited to

the faculty as a whole. With trust, schools can overcome battles more easily, he said. This starts with having the principal present in the classroom on a regular basis. That way, the principal is more connected to the teachers as well as the students, he said. “High trust schools are three times more likely to improve than low trust schools,” Payne said. “We trust people that help us grow.” When reforming schools, Payne said it is never a good idea to focus on one issue. Even if one issue gets fixed, other problems will still need to be solved. Rachel Dentinger, a junior music education major, said she agrees that teaching in an urban

Donors from California are crafting plans to build a day care center on the SU campus, Beck said. “It’s not just what’s going on here, a lot of this support is going back to campus,” she said. SU programs based in LA have increased in interest and visibility, Beck said. The SU in LA semester program launched three years ago and separate immersion programs are available for students studying sport management and architecture. Immersion programs for students in the College of Visual and Performing Arts and the S.I Newhouse School of Public Communications are also available. The SU in LA staff has also expanded and are working, specifically, toward attracting more students from the West Coast. Beck said, overall, she is enthused by the level of alumni engagement in the SU in LA program. Said Beck: “It’s a huge success, the momentum, the excitement level. We’re painting this town orange. You can’t go anywhere without running into an SU alum.”

school is one of the most challenging settings. “I think that you need to really, really groom teachers for that setting,” Dentinger said, although she did not think Payne provided a solution for doing this. Dentinger said she is optimistic when it comes to teaching students in an urban setting, regardless of the negative connotation. She said she is leaning toward teaching middle school music classes. “I want to give kids an opportunity to be creative and expressive and learn new things,” she said. “I want to be able to teach them good morals and how to be a good person through music.”

Giving back By Liz Sawyer



ashington Monthly magazine recognized SUNYESF in its 2011 college rankings for being one of the top 10 universities in the country for community service. The study examined how schools give back to their communities based on social mobility, research and service, according to a Huffington Post article published online Sept. 2. The State University of New York Environmental Science and Forestry ranked 10th in the nation for accumulating close to 70,000 hours of community service each year during its Saturday of Service and service learning projects, according to the article. Institutions on the

ESF recognized as top college for community service

West Coast, such as the University of California-Riverside and the University of California-Los Angeles ranked highest in the study. Claire Dunn, the community service and learning coordinator at ESF, said that as a school ESF isn’t often looking for recognition like this, but it’s great for the students, faculty and staff to see that their work is indeed appreciated. “We have a very strong culture here of students who are very interested in the community, and we want to make our environment a better place,” she said. Dunn said students participate in a range of volunteer activities during the college’s annual Saturday of Service, including cleaning debris from Onondaga Creek in the city of Syracuse. This event introduces incoming freshmen to the campus as well as ESF’s mission of service. This year, freshmen contributed their time at one of ten local parks during the Saturday of Service, Dunn said.

Freshmen must complete at least one service project during their fall semester, but many end up completing up to four or five, Dunn said. “This class, in particular, is extremely interested in these projects,” she said. Students also participate in service learning projects, which incorporate some sort of community service activity within a course, Dunn said. Hours contributed through service learning projects and the Saturday of Service events make up the 70,000 hours of community service ESF generates per year, Dunn said. Dunn said that for such a small school — ESF enrolls 2,200 — students participate in 30 to 40 community activities per year. One of the most popular organizations on campus is the Green Campus Initiative, a student-run group dedicated to making ESF a more “green” environment, said Paul Otteson, the GCI club adviser. Otteson said members have been busy working on a multitude of sustainability projects, such as the de-lamping effort. Students survey hallways and ESF classrooms, noting how long lights remain on and how much energy is being used. Then they attempt to reduce that number by placing reminder stickers on the light switches. The club has also spent a great deal of time producing recycled notebooks and composting food waste, Otteson said. Overall, the club has about 25 active members, but there are many more on the listserv that come out to certain events, Otteson said. Otteson said the organization is an important asset to ESF because it acts as a model of sustainability, just like the school. But student members also have a personal connection to the group. “Many of them are here seeking degrees where they can go out in the world and have important roles in the environment and sustainability, design, urban planning — all the fields that ESF offers,” Otteson said. “For them, it’s a real proving ground where they can go out and be active on their own kind of personal missions.” Dunn, the community service and learning coordinator at ESF, said the school added her position three years ago when it realized there was a need for a full-time staff member to be in charge of the service programs because it was expanding so much. She said: “It’s important enough to have one staff person dedicated to this.”

tality rates include all deaths that are not risk adjusted. And though the values are less-thanaverage, they have gradually improved since 2008, Duggan said. “With the core measures, the report lists the times that we didn’t get it right, and our rates of not doing it right have gone down. Our rates of complications have also gone down. And then mortality rate’s aren’t risk-adjusted so nothing can be said about those,” he said. Data from the reports is public and widely available, which poses a problem as people begin to draw comparisons between hospitals and relating one outcome to another without knowing the information excluded in the diagnostic codes, Duggan said. “They were never designed to be used as comparisons. They were used as comparisons because they can be. And I think that comparing often gives an inaccurate representation of things,” Duggan said. Bruce Boissonnault, president and CEO of the Niagara Health Quality Coalition, said that today’s definition of quality health care is mostly steeped in the amount of effort a hospital puts in, when it should be determined by results. While a hospital can put in the right amount of effort each day, they can still have a lousy heart attack rate, he said. Boissonnault said that the report card lists rare events and that people should not be intimidated by a hospital’s placement. “It doesn’t mean that people will receive subpar care — people should not be afraid of their hospitals,” he said. “And it also doesn’t mean that everyone who goes to America’s safest hospitals is going to receive safe care either.” Though the coalition gave University Hospi-

tal a two-star rating, Boissonnault said it does not mean that the hospital is average since the rating follows the New York state standard of care, which has high standards compared to other states. “If you think you’re having a heart attack or stroke, or you have some sort of medical issue, that’s not the time to check the report,” Boissonnault said. “You go to the hospital.” The coalition wants hospitals to take the results seriously, without dismissing them. Worse-thanaverage results are often attributed to human error that may lead to complications. Because of this, hospitals need to take all possible measures to reduce such factors, Boissonnault said. University Hospital has developed a system to improve the hospital, which covers two main areas. The first is to reduce the rate of complications by changing the way people practice, while the second is to take great care in recognizing diagnosis correctly. With this system, the hospital has improved in terms of patient safety dramatically, Duggan said. “We are always trying to get better, I don’t want to underemphasize that,” Duggan said. “We’ve got teams working every day to get better. And, unfortunately, things do go wrong, and our job is to do as best as we can to limit that to the minimum number, and we’ll continue trying to do that.” Syracuse University Health Services often sends students to University Hospital, either by referral or through SU Ambulance. Students have a choice on where they want to go, and many choose University Hospital, said Paul Smith, a Health Services representative. “If we have a student, we can take them anywhere they choose, they can go to the health center or to one of the hospitals,” Smith said. “It depends on their preference, their condition and the situation. But we usually let them choose.”

Crowd goes wild for Tiësto By Karin Dolinsek ASST. COPY EDITOR

andus Carmon has lived on Otisco Street with her husband and three kids for four years. Several houses that line the street have multiple broken windows, unkempt lawns and faded or chipping paint. Some of the neighboring houses are abandoned and garbage litters the street. “No one wants to pick up their trash around here,” Carmon said. “And when you try to bring it up, no one wants to talk about it.” But after Home HeadQuarters’ Block Blitz, Carmon sees the neighborhood heading in a positive direction. “My house looked like an office building before, and now it looks like a home,” Carmon said. Home HeadQuarters is a nonprofit organization aimed at revitalizing and rebuilding homes in Central and Upstate New York. At its annual Block Blitz event, a fundraiser and neigh-

Home HeadQuarters’ annual revitalization event beautifies local neighborhoods

borhood cleanup, volunteers flock to two streets in the downtown Syracuse area to do basic home repairs and beautify residents’ homes by painting, gardening and landscaping. They also board up abandoned homes. This year’s event took place on the 700 block of Otisco Street of the Near Westside and the 100 block of Hoefler Street of Skunk City on Friday. “The goal of the day is really to get people into the neighborhoods that we’re working in and show that significant change can be done if we all really work together,” said Ali Jackson Popp, Home HeadQuarters’ marketing coordinator. The streets were lined with half a dozen pickup trucks, construction vans and paint cans marked with numbers according to which house they would be used to paint. A handwritten sign that read “WET PAINT” was taped on a freshly painted porch. A group of volunteers plucked weeds by hand while others assembled a shed. Volunteers included large corpora-

tions, like Bank of America, IBM and Sherwin- Williams; local businesses, like Murtaugh Restoration and Syracuse United Neighbors; and students from Syracuse University, Onondaga Community College and the State University of New York at Oswego. Residents of the homes on Otisco and Hoefler streets helped out as well. Local businesses feel personally connected with Block Blitz because of the event’s dedication to bettering Syracuse’s less fortunate neighborhoods. Boyce Murtaugh, owner of Murtaugh Restoration, even earned the nickname “King of the Block” because he is a frequent volunteer for Home HeadQuarters, Popp said. Murtaugh and his fellow construction workers had their trucks parked along the streets of both locations, carried long planks of wood out of the trucks and then cut those pieces of wood with an electric saw. The small group of SU students took direction from Block Blitz supervisors by painting porches


The crowd went crazy the moment Tiësto’s first beats sounded out. The artist stepped on the stage and the venue was engulfed by the screaming of excited fans, who have waited to see the famous DJ perform since the buzz about the event began early this summer. The line of people waiting to enter the venue started forming at 7 p.m., as soon as the doors to the Oncenter Exhibition Hall opened. Dressed in neon colors and wearing sunglasses, people waited calmly for the anticipated electro dance show. Syracuse is Tiësto’s fourth of 19 stops on his three-week “Club Life College Invasion Tour,” which ends in Los Angeles on Oct 8. The show started at 8:30 p.m. when opener Porter Robinson took the stage and began mixing electro sounds. Robinson shot to fame when he joined Tiësto during his Canadian tour before graduating high school Taking inspiration from established artists like Wolfgang Gartner and Deadmou5, Robinson mixed sounds from Gartner’s “Illmerica” and even Lady Gaga’s recent hit, “The Edge of Glory.” As he began the countdown to his hit “Say My Name,” the anticipation had everyone alert and ready to erupt into another series of fistpumping dance moves. As soon as the fist beats of his song played, the crowd’s energy seemed to surge and the mass of people began leaping and jumping. “Put your hands up for New York,” Robinson said to the crowd as he was concluding his set. “I love my city.” The crowd joined in. Porter Robinson’s set was long; he performed for 1.5 hours. Even though people were dancing and singing along to his music, the crowd soon started chanting: “Tiësto, Tiësto, Tiësto,” eagerly awaiting the man of the hour to hit the stage. The wait was finally over. Tiësto took over the stage, ready to show the crowd why he is “The Greatest DJ of All Time,” according British publication Mixmag. Lacking flashy accessories and dressed in his usual attire, a simple, purple T-shirt, Tiësto immediately got to work on his set and the crowd began reacting to his every beat. Behind his DJ set, a giant screen showed images of female silhouettes moving to his beats and pop cul-

and helping transport materials up and down the block. While SU has always sponsored Block Blitz, this was the first year that students participated through the First-Year Experience program. Typically, Block Blitz is held during the summer and isn’t open to students, but Home HeadQuarters pushed back the date of event to accommodate SU’s academic calendar, said Forrest Ball, senior political science and economics major and student coordinator for Block Blitz. As an intern at Home HeadQuarters last summer, Ball helped facilitate the partnership

pul p @ da ilyor a

between Home HeadQuarters and SU by working with Greg Victory, the former director of the Office of First-Year and Transfer Programs. Ball thought that Block Blitz would be an effective way of familiarizing students with the Syracuse area. “Students are able to get a better sense of what Syracuse is all about,” Ball said. “It’s kind of easy to think that it’s just the hill, and there’s so much more than that.” The Office of First-Year and Transfer Programs advertised Block Blitz on Facebook, Twitter and first-year campus organizations. Students were able to sign up online. Ball hopes that students who enjoyed Block Blitz will continue to do community service within the city of Syracuse. “There’s so many ways for students to get off

the hill and get immersed in the community,” he said. SU freshmen had the option of participating in Block Blitz as part of their First-Year Experience program, the shared experience that the university wants all first-year students to have. The university wanted students to start off their first year at SU with an activity that reflects the ideals of SU’s commitment to Scholarship in Action, said Ball. One hundred students from the Class of 2015 were expected to volunteer at Block Blitz, Jackson said. Only 15 SU students participated. Julie Saltisiak, a freshman newspaper and online journalism and English and textual studies major, took a bus provided by SU to Otisco Street right after she got out of class on Friday. “I volunteered for Habitat for Humanity before, so Block Blitz fits my interests perfectly,” Saltisiak said. Other First-Year Experience options included white-water rafting and attending various on-campus lectures and movie screenings. “I think Block Blitz is a better option,”


Located at 990 James St. in Syracuse, Home HeadQuarters is a nonprofit organization that creates housing and other opportunities for residents of Central and Upstate New York, especially in Syracuse and Onondaga County. Founded in 1996, the organization is dedicated to revitalizing communities and is one of the region’s biggest providers of home and energy improvement loans and grants. The primary goal of the group is to stabilize neighborhoods that need it the most and to prevent foreclosures.

“The goal of the day is really to get people into the neighborhoods that we’re working in and show that significant change can be done if we all really work together.” Ali Jackson Popp


said freshman anthropology major Alejandra Avina. “It exposes different sides of Syracuse.” Deborah Bell, a 25-year resident of Hoefler Street, called Block Blitz a “blessing” and said that she wouldn’t have been able to afford her new shed without the help of Home HeadQuarters. Bell’s neighbor, Victoria Wade, who has lived in Skunk City for four years, appreciated the landscaping done by the Block Blitz volunteers. The two women agreed that Block Blitz efforts helped enhance the neighborhood exponentially. “From today on, the neighborhood is probably going to grow,” Bell said. Carmon said he hopes to continue renovating her home with the gardening skills Block Blitz volunteers taught her. She credited Block Blitz with bringing beauty back to her area and said that, like the residents of Skunk City, her Near Westside neighborhood is on the brink of transformation. She said: “I heard that there’s not a lot of homeowners in this neighborhood, but that’s about to change.”

er, Tiësto gestured to the crowd and people responded back by jumping, fist-pumping and singing along. “He’s a great performer and can immediately get the crowd pumped up and into his music,” said Ashley Thombs, an undeclared junior in the Martin J. Whitman School of Management. Tiësto effectively mixed his songs into one flowing loop, so it was hard to distinguish individual songs. He played remixes of popular songs like “Otherside” by Red Hot Chili Peppers and “Hello” by Martin Solveig and Dragonette. He then transitioned to some of his newest songs, including “C’mon” and “Maximal Crazy,” and concluded by spinning tracks, like “Elements of Life,” from older albums. The colorful laser beams and lights indicated that the emphasis was on creating a visually stimulating show. The production included hundreds of confetti raining on the crowd and clouds of white smoke shooting from the ground. “The show was wild, crazy and fun,” said Rachel Moczarski, a junior child and family studies and human ecology major. “It’s great that they brought such a big headliner to Syracuse within the first month of school so that everyone can get together and enjoy the concert. It shows how much fun Syracuse is.” Tiësto has a unique style that students attending the concert seemed to enjoy. In his sets, he skillfully mixed trance sounds and threw in some moderate dubstep into his sets. People closed their eyes, threw their hands in the air and waved along to the beats. The entire evening, people belted out familiar tunes and commented on how great the show was. The venue offered people enough room to dance while enjoying an upbeat, musically and technologically outstanding concert.

Thrice as nice By Jeff Wucher CONTRIBUTING WRITER

Are there any actors more deserving of some solid, steady television work than the members of NBC’s “Up All Night”? Christina Applegate was the best part of her quickly dismissed “Samantha Who?” Will Arnett shined as George Oscar Bluth in the short-lived “Arrested Development.” Maya Rudolph basically dropped off the face of the earth after a strong showing on “Saturday Night Live.” Somehow all these “misfits” of comedy have stumbled their way into a program practically begging to showcase their talents, and for much of the pilot, it does just that. Arnett and Applegate star as Chris and Regan, a career-driven married couple who has a baby. Believe it or not, the baby changes things. It’s a premise that’s been scripted perhaps 26,433 times, but the show presents fresh ideas that may help the writers avoid relying on diaper jokes (there was only one in the pilot). In the show, Chris decides to stay home and take care of their daughter Amy, and Regan goes back

Despite lackluster script, trio of comedians expertly carry show

to her job at the Oprah-surrogate talk show, “Ava.” Maya Rudolph plays Ava, in a part that was reportedly beefed up to feature her more prominently after the success of “Bridesmaids.” And what a great decision that was. Rudolph claims ownership of some of the pilot’s best moments. But the “Ava” office segment is the weakest portion of the show — the subplot about a dietary cleanse that results in some serious bowel troubles fell flat. However, it did yield, maybe, the first and only television broadcast of the phrase “wicked hot sting ring,” so all is forgiven. The writing features more funny phrases, but it’s mainly confident in its real-life scenarios that have been formatted to comic extremes. For example, Chris and Regan can’t stop cursing in front of their baby, not out of anger, but because she’s “so f**king beautiful,” which is actually both extremely sweet and hilarious. Also, new dad Chris’ panic in the grocery store (“I can’t find cheese!”) ends in a showdown as he attempts to circumvent an old lady who just wants to ogle at his adorable daughter. Again, the whole baby concept is by no means new ground, but it

is comically absurd bits like these that give the show a fresher feeling. Still, the show ends up feeling a little scatological, jumping around from bit to bit with the only real cohesion being the characters. There were two “plots” for the pilot, but both felt more like set ups to punch lines (“sting ring!”) than actual stories. While the show rollicked with hilarity, there was no real arc. It doesn’t even end with any real plot resolution, but a twee moment of Chris, Regan and their baby lying on a picnic blanket on the grass as Regan gives a little speech that calls back two jokes from earlier in the episode. But the real pleasure of the show is seeing these three comic masters at work. Though the writing seems to be more concerned with jokes than with characters, there’s too much talent here for “Up All Night” to be a bad show. The pilot is a mixed bag, but chances are this show will match up to its actors and become one of the stronger fall premiers.

Q&As with electro music DJs Tiësto and Porter Robinson By Karin Dolinsek ASST. COPY EDITOR

Dutch DJ Tiësto brought his “Club Life Campus Invasion Tour” to Syracuse on Sunday night. The DJ talked to the Daily Orange about his current tour, the popularity of house music and his plans for the rest of the year.

The Daily Orange: What do you think will set the Syracuse show apart from other shows on your college tour? DJ Tiësto: That really depends on the fans. I'm coming to Syracuse ready to play an amazing show that they won't forget, and it's up to them to go crazy and make this show even more memorable.

Why do you think the popularity of house and electro music in the U.S. is rising right now? Without a doubt the fact that pop, R&B and hip-hop artists have embraced dance music production in their own music has made a big difference. Now electronic music is a lot more mainstream in the U.S. than it ever has been.

Are you interested in exploring new music



Of course, I can never stay complacent with my music, and I'm always looking at other music for ways to get better as a producer and a DJ. My sound is always evolving.

Do you ever miss the Netherlands? What place do you call home?

What was your favorite performance so far? What is your favorite song to perform? I don't have a favorite performance because each place I play is unique. It doesn't matter if it's a small or large venue; each crowd has something special that they bring to each show.

What does a day in your life look like? Do you ever have some downtime to relax? My day usually has a lot of travel and most likely a show to end the night. I have days off in between shows sometimes, which gives me some free time to unwind and recharge so I can put everything into my next shows.

What are your plans for the future? Any exciting collaborations with other artists you have lined up? Once I finish up touring this year, I'll be getting back in the studio to work on a new album for

Holland will always be my home. Places like Los Angeles and Las Vegas are like second homes to me, but I always try to take time to get home to see my mom and my family.

Porter Robinson Accompanying Tiësto on his current tour is 18-year-old Porter Robinson, a young phenomenon in the house music industry. The Daily Orange talked to him about plans for the future and being a rising star in the music scene.

The Daily Orange: How did you break into the industry? Porter Robinson: I put out “Say My Name,” and it went No. 1 on the site Beatport, which is huge. After that, it happened fast. I got several booking requests, and Tiësto’s management contacted me for this tour. There’s no real trick to it, you just have to be passionate about your music and love producing it.

Touring must be hard. Do you ever feel like you're sacrificing the lifestyle of a college student? Yeah, touring all the time is hard, there are points when you get pretty miserable after a 2 a.m. show. But in the end, it’s so rewarding. I chose not to go to college to pursue this wholeheartedly.

You started producing music when you were 13. Where did you learn the skills to mix electro sounds at such a young age? I never took any musical lessons, but I had a mentor who always gave me critical feedback. The other part was holding myself to a really high standard. You don’t have to invest a lot into it financially but, you have to be willing to invest time and do a lot of hard work.

Do you have any specific plans for the future? Nothing I can announce quite yet, but I’m always writing. Right now, I’m just focused on the present.

Lack of audience prevents band from truly thrilling performance By Gabriela Sarzynski CONTRIBUTING WRITER

From the shadows emerged a figure fully equipped with a f lashy jacket, glittery glove and black f lowing locks, vigorously thrusting his hips and hitting every high note perfectly. Although there was an uncanny resemblance, the King of Pop had not been resurrected. Who’s Bad: The Ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute Band performed to a small turnout at the Westcott Theater on Thursday night. Who’s Bad consists of seven band members, with two alternating performances as Jackson. The performers first embarked on a collaborative endeavor to salute the King of Pop in 2004, according to the band’s website. Casey Jared, box office manager at the Westcott Theater, said about 100 tickets were sold, a slap in the face for a band that is accustomed to selling out venues internationally. Taalib York, one of two lead vocalists of the group, said the turnout was “a little sore” for them. Who’s Bad kicked off with instrumental track “Why You Wanna Trip on Me” followed by “Jam,” from Jackson’s 1991 album “Dangerous.” The band covered songs from his early days, from The Jackson 5 tunes to solo hits from the best-selling album of all time, “Thriller.” The audience needed the most easily recognizable songs like “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough” and “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’” to get out of their seats and start dancing. “I think this was a small crowd that sometimes lacked enthusiasm,” said Linda Doran, 49, of Syracuse. Despite the small crowd, Doran said she enjoyed the performers’ show. “As they went along, they got better and better. The costumes, the dancing, everything,” she said. Jackson trademarked the moonwalk and slick moves that seem to defy the laws of gravity, but York perfected them. The crowd roared whenever he levitated across the stage. “On the dancing front, they definitely did

[Michael Jackson] justice,” said Shaun Sutkus, a production assistant. But there’s much more to recreating the world famous persona that was Michael Jackson, York said. “It’s not just what he looks like,” York said. “It’s how he holds himself, how he holds his face, how he looks at the audience. It’s a lot of little pieces that go into that emulation.” In a guitar solo during “Beat It,” Patrick Cross strummed his guitar from behind his back, not once missing a chord. York said the audience had diverse age groups. “That’s every show,” York said. “That’s what Michael brings.” An elementary school-age boy showed off his best Jackson moves front and center as his mother snapped pictures alongside clusters of senior citizens tapping their feet and clapping their hands to the beat. To stimulate the crowd, Joseph Bell, the other lead vocalist, invited girls, or pretty young things, up on the stage. Bell announced that it was the birthday of the saxophonist and creator of the band, Vamsi Tadepalli, and asked if anyone in the crowd was also celebrating a birthday. Four out of the nine girls on stage were. “Wow, this is the birthday of all birthdays,” Bell said. The caretaker of a handicapped man wheeled him toward the front of the stage and announced that it was his birthday, too. With a total of six birthdays, the band almost seemed obligated to sing “Happy Birthday.” “What keeps it interesting is the crowd’s involvement,” Tadepalli said. “That’s our No. 1 goal, to interact with them, to make it fun for everyone.” Who’s Bad is now approaching its 800th show. In October, they are scheduled to play in several South American cities. “When you believe in yourself, the sky’s the limit, right?” said bassist Darion Alexander, “Or there is no limit. That’s not cocky. I’m serious. You’re given dreams for a reason, so follow them.”

Syracuse finishes strong offensively to sweep weekend pair By Stephen Bailey Asst. Copy Editor

Syracuse and Princeton went scoreless for the first 54 minutes of play Sunday despite plenty of chances. Heather Susek’s diving tip-in attempt in the 40th minute saw her stick fall inches short of the ball as it rolled to syracuse 5 the left of the goal. Amy rutgers 1 Kee actually put one in the back of the net in the syracuse 5 54th minute, but the goal princeton 0 was called back because it was too high. But once Martina Loncarica buried a penalty stroke in the 55th minute, the floodgates opened. SU reeled off five goals in the last 15-plus minutes. “It was hard for us to get that first goal, but once we got the first goal we got the game rolling,” Susek said. And roll Syracuse did to the tune of a 5-0 victory over the Tigers (2-4, 0-1 Ivy League). For SU, it was the second win of the weekend. The Orange (5-2, 1-0 Big East) defeated Rutgers (1-6, 0-1 Big East) 5-1 on Friday, closing the game in a similar fashion. SU scored three second-half goals and two in the last seven minutes against the Scarlet Knights to

open Big East play. The Orange did score two first-half goals against Rutgers. But things opened up against the Scarlet Knights in the second half on Friday in the same way they did Sunday against Princeton. Standing by the back post of the goal three minutes into the second half, Susek hovered behind a Rutgers defender, waiting for her chance. When a ball deflected to her, she seized the opportunity, knocking it in to give the Orange a 3-1 lead. “You always want to go for the ball,” Susek said after Friday’s game. “It just so happened that it hit off the girl’s foot, and I was right there for the rebound.” Freshman midfielder Jordan Page and senior midfielder Liz McInerney finished off the scoring for the Orange, outscoring the Scarlet Knights 3-1 in the second half. Loncarica, who broke SU’s all-time points record in that game, emphasized the importance of SU’s strong finish against Rutgers. “We started off really well then went down a little bit by the end of the first half,” Loncarica said.” And then the second half we dominated. Obviously, we scored three very nice goals in the second half. ” But the Orange was unable to carry that

scoring barrage into the start of the Princeton game. Instead, SU used the first 35 minutes to break down the defense and further tire out a Tigers team that had lost a hard-fought game to Dartmouth a day earlier. Syracuse attacked Princeton from differ-

ent angles in hopes of finding weak points to eventually exploit, head coach Ange Bradley said. “We’re just moving the ball and changing the angles,” Bradley said. “When you change the angles, you make the defense move. And ultimately it opens up a hole.” And although they were unable to score in the first half, the Orange was able to use what it learned to come out of halftime firing. SU scored five second-half goals — two more than Syracuse wanted to score coming

out of the locker room, Kee said. After Loncarica “broke the ice,” as Bradley put it, SU struck often, scoring three times in the next 10 minutes. Then, with 44 seconds left in regulation, freshman forward Lauren Brooks closed the game with one last goal. Brooks’ score was the first of her career and arguably the most impressive tally of the weekend. She was standing in the middle of the shooting circle when sophomore back Laura Hahnefeldt fired a ground ball toward her. Lowering her stick to the ground, Brooks redirected the ball and sent it sailing into the back of the net. “It was an awesome deflection and like a world-class goal,” Bradley said. “We always tease her that she never dives and today she dove. It was great, really fun to see.” In total, the Orange recorded eight of its 10 goals this weekend in the second half and seven of those eight in the 55th minute or later. This weekend’s success has left the Orange with an improved sense of confidence, Kee said. “Emotionally, from the standpoint of beating Princeton like that, the team’s going to be on a real high from now on,” Kee said. sebail01@

DeCarlo’s first career goal late in second half lifts SU to 1-0 victory By David Propper Staff Writer

Lauren DeCarlo might never have been in the position to score Syracuse’s biggest goal of the season if not for the momentary injury of one of her teammates. With less than 10 minutes to go in the syracuse 1 second half in a scoreless tie between SU and Proviprovidence 0 dence, defender Casey Ramirez collided with a Providence player. Following the collision, Syracuse head coach Phil Wheddon asked Ramirez if she was OK to continue, but the senior was too shaken up. As a result, Wheddon turned to backup defender DeCarlo — a walk-on — to go in for Ramirez. “Usually, you don’t make changes at the back unless you have to,” Wheddon said. “Was it planned to put Lauren in at that time? No. But I’m glad I did.” DeCarlo went from the bench to the pitch

(3-3-4, 1-1 Big East). With the win, Syracuse (2-3-3, 1-1 Big East) evened up its record in Big East play in front of 307 at the SU Soccer Stadium after falling to Connecticut 1-0 on Thursday. DeCarlo was used sparingly in the game but said she noticed Syracuse didn’t have a lot of back-post runs on Sunday. When she entered the game with time ticking down, the defender decided to push up the field. As the sophomore was racing down the sideline, Brittany Kinmond sent a crossing pass into the Providence box in the 86th minute. SU’s Brielle Heitman couldn’t head it in, but her header deflected right to DeCarlo. From there, DeCarlo wound up and shot into the left side of the net, freezing Friars’ goalkeeper Caitlin Walker and scoring her first career goal. “It was actually magical,” said Heitman, who was credited with the assist on the play. “I kind of held my breath there for a second. I saw the ball coming across, and Lauren was wide

Lauren DeCarlo’s first career goal with less than five minutes remaining proved to be the difference. rushing to her in celebration. The goal finally finished what the Orange tried to accomplish all game. Throughout the game Saturday, Syracuse was in control and possessed the ball at a much higher rate than Providence. The Orange sent the ball into the box at will and took 10 shots compared to just two for PU. The Friars failed to get a shot off in the second half. Wheddon said his team simply played better than Providence in almost every aspect of the game. “Anytime you can put in a performance like this, I think it’s a great tribute to the players,” Wheddon said. “We didn’t take our foot off the gas pedal at all. I thought every one of our players contributed, and I would say without being too big headed that I thought we dominated the performance. I thought we were the much better team.” Although SU was clearly the better team against the Friars, who were on their heels for the full 90 minutes, it still dealt with a problem

it’s had all season long: cashing in on its offensive chances. The game-winning goal was only SU’s fifth goal of the season in eight matches. Wheddon said he saw opportunities for the Orange to net two or three goals earlier in the game that would have made Syracuse’s task of dismantling Providence easier. Instead, the contest came down to the final five minutes and the right foot of DeCarlo, who was the third Orange scorer this season to net her first career goal. For Wheddon that sends a message to the rest of his squad — anyone’s capable of contributing to SU’s success. “It’s a message to every player,” Wheddon said. “If you’re doing the right thing, if you’re working as hard as she is and stuff like that, you can get on the field, and you deserve to be on the field, and you’ll get your opportunities. It’s all about making the most of your opportunities.” dgproppe@

Alec Lemon

Lemon had a fantastic game for the second straight week despite Syracuse’s loss. He was the top wide receiver for quarterback Ryan Nassib on Saturday, catching seven passes for 72 yards and a touchdown. He also threw for a touchdown on a trick play, lobbing a pass 28 yards to Van Chew in the end zone.

Nick Provo

Provo finally had a game that matched the expectations set for him as Syracuse’s starting tight end. After struggling with drops and making only four receptions through two games, he caught eight passes for 85 yards against the Trojans.


Van Chew

Through two games, it looked like Chew was a near-lock to become the third Syracuse player to record 1,000 receiving yards in a season. But he was shut down against USC. He caught just two passes for 18 yards all game from Ryan Nassib. The 28-yard touchdown he caught from Alec Lemon saved his stat line.

Shane Raupers

Raupers was filling in the big shoes of Rob Long sufficiently for Syracuse in its first two games, punting to a 40.4 yard average. But his punts were poor in his first game outdoors this season at USC. He didn’t have a punt travel more than 33 yards, and he was replaced by freshman Jonathan Fisher, who punted twice for a 43.5 yard average.

Brandon Reddish

Reddish has gotten playing time throughout the season so far for Syracuse, the only true freshman to see time in the secondary. But his time on the field in place of the injured Keon Lyn on Saturday showed just how much he needs to improve before he can be relied on. Reddish was burned by USC receiver Marqise Lee on a 43-yard touchdown.



First quarter

Southern California quarterback Matt Barkley fooled the Syracuse defense with a play-action fake and hit tight end Rhett Ellison for a fi ve-yard score to put the Trojans up 7-3. Syracuse never led again.

forced to throw often to try and come back from a double-digit deficit in the second half. Despite Marrone’s desire for balance, Syracuse came out attacking through the air on its opening drive. Quarterback Ryan Nassib conducted an efficient 12-play, 70-yard drive down the field, completing all eight of his passes. But much of SU’s early aerial push came on short passes to Bailey. The running back couldn’t gain substantial yardage on the ground, but he found success catching the ball in the flat. The senior, who caught 35 passes last season, had just one reception in the first two games this year. But he caught four passes for 34 yards on the Orange’s first scoring drive, capped off by a 23-yard field goal by Ross Krautman. “We were ready to go and came down and got the ball first and made some plays,” Nassib


Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib started fast against the Trojans, leading the Orange down the field for a score on its opening possession. USC responded with a touchdown, and Syracuse never led from that point on. Here’s a look at Nassib’s production by quarter Saturday: QUARTER

THEY SAID IT “We had them in perfect positions on numerous occasions, and somehow they got the ball out and their guys made plays for first downs. After a while it became frustrating, and we had to go back and try to make adjustments.” Mikhail Marinovich


said. “It was unfortunate that we couldn’t get a touchdown, but we were happy to move the ball and get some points.” Syracuse took those three points on the opening drive but struggled to score the rest of the game. There was no rhyme or reason to when the Orange’s drives stalled — at the USC 48 on one drive, a three-and-out in another. But there was reasoning behind why the drives stalled. Too often, Nassib was faced with throwing deep on third-and-long because the Orange didn’t run the ball well enough to set up a third-and-short. “This was a big night for us on defense,” USC linebacker Chris Galippo said. “And we went into the second half and played solid. The first two weeks we gave up too many big plays and big drives. Tonight we were able to avoid that.” Syracuse came out of the locker room to start the second half down 17-3, a score that could have allowed for the Orange to keep a balanced offense early on. But after the Trojans’ marched down the

field and scored a touchdown within four plays, SU had to really open up the offense and became one-dimensional. Down 24-10, Syracuse drove into Trojans territory, at the USC 35, and threatened to cut into the lead. But failed second-and-third down plays ended the threat. On third-and-8, Nassib was sandwiched by USC defensive linemen Shane Horton and DaJohn Harris. They both collapsed on the Syracuse quarterback, bringing him down for a loss of 4 yards and forcing the Orange to punt. USC scored on the ensuing drive and pushed the Trojans’ lead back to three scores, squashing all hopes of a comeback. “It kind of had to do with the flow of the game,” Bailey said. “… They made some great plays, and they made some good adjustments.” Syracuse leaves LA with some question marks on offense. Bailey had fewer than 15 carries and fewer than 50 yards rushing for the second straight game. Nassib displayed accuracy, completing 67.6 percent of his throws, but most of those throws were of the short-range variety. And the Trojans sacked Nassib three times on Saturday — the second straight game in which the SU quarterback was taken down on three separate occasions. So while Syracuse has moved the ball through the air, it hasn’t put the points up to go with it. “Toward the end I made some mistakes trying to do too much, and that’s when the offense stalled,” Nassib said. “They dialed up more pressure and did some things we hadn’t seen.”



Barkley had the third fi ve-touchdown day of his career Saturday, driving up and down the field with ease against Syracuse. He finished with 324 yards passing and threw each of his touchdowns to fi ve different receivers.

No one can really be singled out here because USC quarterback Matt Barkley spread the ball around and picked apart the entire Syracuse pass coverage. But it was a poor performance all around. All five of the Trojans’ touchdowns came through the air, including three of them from 30-plus yards out.

between us.” Miscommunications and mismatches did in the Orange on Saturday, as Barkley tied a USC single-game record with five touchdown passes against Syracuse (2-1, 0-0 Big East) in a 38-17 USC victory. Barkley threw for 324 yards and found a different receiver on each of his touchdown passes. The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum crowd of 65,873 was treated to a flurry of big pass plays from its star quarterback, as he exploited an inexperienced SU secondary damaged by injuries. USC (3-0, 1-0 Pac-12) handed Syracuse its first loss of the season, denying the Orange a chance to start 3-0 for the first time since 1991. “It all depends how you want to look at it,” SU head coach Doug Marrone said. “I mean, they’re a good football team, but we also made some mistakes early on this game, and it goes back

experience on the Orange defense was exposed. It’s a scary thought because Syracuse’s secondary was one of its supposed strengths entering the season. Instead, the SU pass defense is ranked 101st in the country after Barkley and Wake Forest quarterback Tanner Price each had their way with it. And with each injury, the Orange’s lack of depth became more and more painfully visible. Reddish didn’t belong. There was miscommunication on defense when the subs went in. And Barkley ran them off the field. “It was difficult, but that’s the sport of football,” cornerback Kevyn Scott said. “Some guys are going to go down, that’s why you’ve got


“After a while it became frustrating, and we had to go back and try to make adjustments.” But Barkley was only getting started for the Trojans. Syracuse struggled to find a consistent defense for his No. 1 target — and perhaps the No. 1 target in college football — Robert Woods. With the Trojans up 7-3 in the second quarter, Barkley threw one of his first deep balls of the game, looking for Woods down the left sideline. Scott tried taking an angle to keep up with the receiver, but he bumped into Woods to warrant a 15-yard pass interference penalty. Five plays later, Barkley went looking for Woods deep again, this time down the right sideline against starting cornerback Keon Lyn. Woods created separation and made a catch, ducking into the end zone for a 31-yard score that put USC up 14-3. Trojans head coach Lane Kiffin said moving the ball through the air was by design. “They are a strong team against the run, so I didn’t want to get caught up in another game where we were running the ball just for the sake

of running it,” Kiffin said. Even while staked to a double-digit lead in the second half, the Trojans kept chucking it. And after Syracuse had clawed back within 24-10, it was one huge pass from Barkley that shut the door for good. True freshman Brandon Reddish entered the game for an injured Lyn, and a few feet in front of Reddish went the game. Barkley dropped back to pass from the SU 43-yard line. Wide receiver Marqise Lee was in one-on-one coverage with Reddish. The USC quarterback heaved up a prayer, and Lee coasted under it in the end zone ahead of Reddish to put the Trojans up 31-10. Every time Syracuse got its hopes up for a comeback, Barkley annulled them. “Credit to him,” Scott said. “He’s a good football player, and he has some good receivers to compliment him. “… I can’t say that we gave them a lot of things, probably one coverage we blew, but other than that they earned a lot of plays.”

to have a two-deep at certain positions. So those guys got to be ready because we tell those guys, the backups, you’re an ankle away from getting in.” Making matters worse is the manner in which USC disassembled Syracuse’s pass defense. Star receiver Robert Woods made some plays, but not as many as he usually makes. Instead, Barkley found the USC freshmen, who played with the presence of veterans. The two longest touchdown passes of the game went to tight end Randall Telfer and Lee, two freshmen. Another freshman tight end, Xavier Grimble, caught Barkley’s fifth touchdown pass. USC head coach Lane Kiffin was pleased with how prepared his freshmen were — the opposite of Marrone’s sentiments. “Randall Telfer, Christian Thomas and Marqise Lee all came up big for us tonight, and I’m

proud of the improvement they showed,” Kiffin said. “Guys are going to make mistakes starting out so for them to contribute for us tonight really gives us something to build on.” Syracuse needs to start seeing more progression from its young players each week. These players got time against Wake Forest due to injuries, and SU rotated a lot of players in and out against Rhode Island. Yet they made mistakes — mental and physical — Saturday. There are two weeks until Syracuse opens Big East play against Rutgers, and the Orange defense is well behind where it should be. This defense cannot hold onto last year’s numbers. It isn’t that team. The 2011 Syracuse defense is ranked 84th in the nation through three weeks — 77 spots lower than last year. There was no word Saturday on Thomas’ condition, but if he and defensive end Chandler

Jones are both out for any period of time, the Orange defense, at its current state, will struggle mightily. Syracuse has played three games, but the defense still feels like an unknown. They seem to have talented athletes and players who could be good. But will they figure it out in time? “We got caught up in some bad matchups and bad coverages,” Marrone said. “They had some good route combinations, and we weren’t in a position we wanted to be in. “We have some young players, but in the long run it will help those kids.” For now, that’s just a hope. Because it’s only helping SU’s opponents in the short run.

to me. I’ve got to do a better job to get this team ready and put them in better position.” Syracuse began the game in strong position, taking the opening possession 70 yards down the field on 12 plays before settling for a field goal. But once Barkley and the USC offense took the field, SU’s momentum was sapped. The junior quarterback completed 6-of-8 passes for 60 yards on the Trojans’ first drive. Two of those were key third down conversions — plays that dejected the Syracuse defense throughout Saturday’s game. On third-and-goal from the 5-yard line, Barkley’s play-action fake fooled the Orange pass rush to look to the right while he looked left. He delivered a pass to tight end Rhett Ellison, who dove into the end zone to put USC on top. From there, the Trojans would be on top for good. “We had them in perfect positions on numerous occasions, and somehow they got the ball out and their guys made plays for first downs,” Orange defensive end Mikhail Marinovich said.

Barkley torches SU defense for 5 touchdowns By Mark Cooper ASST. SPORTS EDITOR


OS ANGELES — Randall Telfer sprinted down the center of the field with no one in sight. He could have walked into the end zone if he pleased after the Syracuse pass coverage leaked. It was on that play — just the fourth play of the second half — that the Syracuse defense lapsed. Safety Shamarko Thomas left with an injury two plays earlier, and Telfer, the USC tight end, reached the cardinal-and-gold painted grass with a 44-yard score. In doing so, he re-established the same steadfast tone for the final two quarters that was set in the first half. The Orange couldn’t stop USC quarterback Matt Barkley and the Trojans passing game. “A miscommunication,” SU cornerback Kevyn Scott said. “You got one of the guys that was backing Shamarko up came in, just a miscommunication

SU lacks offensive balance Orange needs freshmen to grow up fast MARK COOPER in 3-touchdown loss at USC L By Mark Cooper ASST. SPORTS EDITOR

LOS ANGELES — This time, pass heavy wasn’t supposed to be the game plan. The Syracuse offense running 17 more pass plays than run plays wasn’t what SU head coach Doug Marrone envisioned for Saturday’s game against Southern California. And because of that 38-pass-to-21rush dynamic, the Orange finished with less than 100 total rushing yards for the second straight week. “This week we came out, we wanted to do a couple of different things,”


Marrone said. “We had some shot plays we wanted to take, we wanted to be able to be 50-50 and be in a close game and be able to run the ball.” Unlike last week, when Marrone said Syracuse came out with a plan to pass against Rhode Island’s defense, SU’s goal was to establish both a solid passing and rushing game to keep the Trojans defense honest. But running back Antwon Bailey struggled to get going on the ground, and the Syracuse defense couldn’t contain the Trojans in a 38-17 loss in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The Orange was



OS ANGELES — The dagger play came down to two true freshmen. Syracuse cornerback Brandon Reddish was in one-on-one coverage with Southern California wide receiver Marqise Lee. Lee won easily. He was faster than Reddish — blowing past the SU backup and running a crisp route to catch a 43-yard touchdown pass in stride, putting USC up by three scores late in the third quarter. And the play didn’t just mean a lot on the field. It exercised, in terms anyone can read, the big difference in the progression of USC’s young players compared to Syracuse’s young players.

USC quarterback Matt Barkley tied a single-game school record by throwing for fi ve touchdown passes against Syracuse. The touchdowns all went to fi ve different receivers.

and the funky bunch “We did have some young guys out there and moving guys in and out, but we were ready for that,” SU head coach Doug Marrone said. “And again, I think I have to do a better job that we protect some of these kids when they get into the game on a quick turnaround.” The youth movement on Syracuse’s defense backfired in the

worst way possible Saturday, as SU couldn’t stop quarterback Matt Barkley and any of his intended targets. Half of Syracuse’s starting secondary — safety Shamarko Thomas and cornerback Keon Lyn — got hurt in the third quarter and didn’t return. Like Marrone said after the game, he needs to do a better job with some of the younger kids, getting them ready to enter when a starter goes down. But it’s Marrone’s wording that is curious. Protect. Syracuse needs to try and hide some of its young, raw defensive players when they are in the game. With that, the lack of depth and SEE COOPER PAGE 17

BCS CONTENDER OR BIG EAST BOTTOM FEEDER? Syracuse arrived in Southern California as a big underdog against the Trojans, and it left with a 21-point loss. USC quarterback Matt Barkley exposed the youth on the SU defense, showing that the Orange has a lot to work on for the rest of 2011.
