Music legend, SU alum Lou Reed dies at 71 By Annie Palmer ASST. NEWS EDITOR

Rock ‘n’ roll legend and Syracuse University alumnus Lou Reed died Sunday at the age of 71. Reed, who was the front man for the Velvet Underground, suffered of complications from a recent liver transplant, according to an Oct. 27 NPR article. Reed graduated with honors from SU in 1964, receiving a degree from the College of Arts and Sciences as an English major. In 2007,

the university presented Reed with the George Arents Award, which is the highest alumni honor given for excellence in writing and the arts, according to the SU website. “The Syracuse University family learned today of the passing of one of its own. While the SU community mourns his loss, we celebrate his poetic soul and innovative spirit,” university officials wrote in an Oct. 27 SU News release. Reed established a scholarship

Two people were taken to a nearby hospital Friday night after pepper spray was used at a Halloween party at Tau Kappa Epsilon. “Pepper spray is very noxious,” said District Chief Terry Williams of the Syracuse Fire Department. “One girl had asthma problems, the other I’m not sure of. Two were

transported to the hospital.” Department of Public Safety Chief Tony Callisto said by 11:45 p.m. DPS had received a call about pepper spray being used at TKE. “Officers and firefighters responded, it was a fairly large gathering of students and the nature of where the pepper spray came from could not be immediately determined,” he said. “The initial responding officers were able to quickly determine it

SU follows national trend of increased diversity among college student government representatives By Brett Samuels



new generation of SA leaders is taking on the issue of campus diversity. In keeping with the national trend of college politics, there has been a positive shift in diversity within Syracuse University’s Student Association, according to members of the organization. Despite the organization’s success, SA is having trouble uniting the different student groups on campus.

This year’s SA presidential candidates all said they believe diversity encompasses more than just race and culture. All three represent diverse backgrounds themselves, including being members of minority groups. Duane Ford is African American. Ivan Rosales and Boris Gresely are Latino. But all three agree that ethnicity isn’t the only thing that diversity encompasses. “Everyone in their own way is diverse,” Rosales said. “It’s not just cultural; it’s about your background,

your sexual orientation, your socioeconomic status. The university has a long history of embracing diversity. You see that and it draws you here, and it draws diverse students who think diversity is important.” Allie Curtis, current SA president, said having people in SA from different backgrounds helps the organization represent the student body. “Having different views and different backgrounds benefits us all in the end,” Curtis said. “The best way

VP candidates cover campus diversity at debate By Brett Samuels STAFF WRITER

The three vice presidential candidates were front and center Sunday night at a Student Association debate in Gifford Auditorium, which was hosted by OrangeSeeds. Nia Boles, Simone Goldslager and Daniela Lopez discussed their platforms and running mates, diversity at Syracuse University and how to reach out to first-year and transfer students at Sunday’s debate. The debate began with each candidate discussing her leadership qualities. Goldslager, who is running with Ivan Rosales, emphasized her lack of experience with SA, which she said makes her a stronger candidate. “I believe that makes me one of the strongest candidates up here because SA has been very internal,” Goldslager said. “Ivan and I want to make it more external and want students to know they can come to SA and use it as a resource.”

Boles, Duane Ford’s running mate, took a different view and said her experience in SA as the chair of the Student Engagement Committee qualified her for the vice presidential position. Lopez, who is Boris Gresely’s running mate, said she believes she’d be a good vice president because she wants to be an example for other students. The topic of diversity — which had been discussed by each of the three presidential candidates in their campaigns and in the earlier presidential debate — was touched upon at Sunday’s debate. The candidates specifically discussed their method of dealing with the issue. Goldslager said she and Rosales want to implement a weeklong multicultural festival to promote diversity and expose students to different cultures. Lopez said she personally faced diversity and self-segregation issues and that the problem should be addressed by reaching out to students who are dedicated to solving

Boles said she’d like to start a “diversity in action initiative” including dialogues on diversity in fresh-

man forum classes, and make it a theme for arriving freshmen during the fall semesters.

Russell Brand could inspire revolution with recently publicized political beliefs


ussell Brand is a polarizing figure. When he appears in the media he tends to make fun of everyone he encounters, including the audience, viewers and other celebrities. From his appearances on MTV, Newsnight and Morning Joe, he’s constantly calling people out and running the show. Many interpret his behavior as ridicule and immaturity, but they fail to look more closely. Russell Brand should be taken seriously as one of the smartest, wittiest, most profound and socio-politically aware Renaissance men of today. On Oct. 23, Brand continued his tradition of being opinionated and knowledgeable in an interview with Jeremy Paxman on Newsnight. Paxman questioned Brand’s qualifications as a guest editor for political magazine The New Statesman. In addition to editing, his 4,500 word piece, “Revolution of Consciousness” was published the morning after the interview. His criticisms didn’t simply apply to Britain but were tied together with universality. In “Revolution of Consciousness,” he writes, “The price of privilege is poverty.” During Newsnight, Brand provided many


living vicariously through you details to preface his article. He said that political apathy didn’t lie with the public, but rather with politicians, whose interests lie in maintaining the status quo and subjugating the lower classes. Despite Brand’s numerous examples and statistics, Paxman called him both “trivial” and “facetious” in the course of a 10-minute news segment. While Paxman kept questioning Brand’s credentials, Brand broke through his dismissals with statements like, “The planet is being destroyed, we are creating an underclass, exploiting poor people all over the world, and the genuine legitimate problems of the world are not being addressed by our political parties.” The power struggle between Paxman and Brand in this short piece is a perfect metaphor

for the subjugation issues that Brand would like to rise against. Paxman characterizes Brand as a one trick pony. This limits Brand’s perceived capacity for issues outside his acting and ignoring Brand’s ability to cross boundaries: Brand has proved that he’s much more than a comedian with silly hair. Stars usually aren’t taken seriously and are often perceived as stupid, and stirring up trouble. Brand contends that stirring up trouble is exactly what needs to happen. Brand has the credentials, he has lived at both extreme ends of the economic spectrum, lived through addiction and has even testified as a witness in a British House of Common’s hearing on addiction. He told Jeremy Paxman that being an actor, or a poor person, should have no reflection on whether he has a right to take action and to be taken seriously. Stars who speak out in the media are painted as attention seeking and trivial. So far, the only person who seems to think that Brand is trivial is Jeremy Paxman. Fortunately, many media outlets, organizations and individuals seem to be on Brand’s side. After the interview aired, NPR and other

news sources expressed sympathies with the revolution that Brand wants to start. Time magazine’s website called him “The World’s Greatest Thinker.” A star was able to discuss an important topic at length, using rhetoric, rather than making a spectacle of himself — a rare quality in entertainment news today. Brand is one of a few celebrities who are calling on their fans to start taking life a bit more seriously. Kanye West told people they need to start giving themselves credit and stop using false humility because that’s what the powers that be tell them to do. Russell Brand is doing something similar. He’s telling his fans to stop being subjugated by a system’s traditions that are doing no good. People should take time to listen to Russell Brand and determine how his philosophies apply to their lives. Whether he realizes it or not, Brand has the platform to inspire revolutions both big and small. Cassie-lee Grimaldi is a senior television, radio and film major. Her column appears weekly.

Investors destructively base financial decisions off emotional reasoning


ou don’t understand,” said a young lady, eyes glowing, “This isn’t a company…it’s a lifestyle.” Many others echoed her sentiments, as a member of Whitman’s student run Investment Club pitched to “buy” $10,000 worth of stock in the clothing company Lululemon last Wednesday. Little analysis was given, but much love regarding the company was espoused. The club ultimately voted to buy. Tons of questions swirled around in my head, but most extended beyond the popularity of the company and their products. This reflected the trend of investing purely based off of emotions. Now in all honesty, qualitative questions are easy, fun and interesting to ask. Everyone cares about basic things like how soft the products are or how much the company can charge before customers say no. The same can be said for inquiring about the cool factor or celebrity endorsements. But at the end of the day, these questions alone mean nothing. For example, let’s look at something more popular. Twitter, which is expected to have its initial public offering in early November, drives home the importance of due diligence. Under S-1 filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the six-year-old company posted a loss of $69 million. Banks and analysts estimate that the company will be worth anywhere from $10-15 billion after the IPO. This assessment is due to the company’s massive number of active users and its potential to monetize them. Even so, many will invest in the social media platform simply because of its name-brand power as Twitter. Maybe Twitter has staying power, but in trying to make a profit, what happens if or when it has fallen out of favor? Investing from a purely emotional standpoint is a quick pathway to financial ruin. The unfortunate thing is that it can affect an investor on many different levels. The process before buying, during buying and after buying or selling are all affected by biases.


covering your assets Think about two companies — McDonald’s and Chipotle. Say for whatever reason you just like McDonald’s better. You feel that McDonald’s has much more menu variety and tastier food. As a result you choose to buy McDonald’s stock rather than Chipotle for this reason alone. If you take a trip to the not so distant past, you’ll find on Feb. 20, 2009, the closing price of stocks for McDonald’s and Chipotle were $57.57 and $55.50, respectively. Now McDonald’s latest closing price was $94.78 while Chipotle’s was $527.50. Both would have made you money, but Chipotle to a much greater extent. Because in this instance you made a decision about an investment purely on the basis of something qualitative like food preferences, you missed out on a gain of several hundred dollars. Selling stocks on emotion can work the same way. A lot of people bought Facebook because it was, well, Facebook. No need to think about how the company made or would make money, its popularity fueled everything. Then when cracks started to show, investors immediately sold off. If you bought the stock at $45 and sold early on at $17.50 (one of the lowest points it reached), then you would be missing out: The stock is now trading more than $50. It is important to extend beyond subjective questions by checking things such as the financial health of the company, the price relative to their competition and major risk factors. I make no suggestions on what to buy. Instead I simply ask that you do your homework. It’s okay to love a company, you just don’t have to be financially committed.

SA candidates reflect diversity needed in representative groups EDITORIAL

A student-run organization like the Student Association should embody the diversity of the students it represents. Fortunately, this year’s SA presidential and vice presidential candidates — all six of which are diverse in terms of race and gender — could ensure proper representation of the student body and further encourage minority students to get involved with the organization. This is a positive trend that should continue. Nationally, there is increased participation among minority groups in organizations like SA, according to the American Student Government Association (ASGA). In 2003-04, 48 percent of student government members were women. As of 2011-2012, when numbers were last recorded, women comprised 52 percent of these organizations. Eleven percent of student body presidents are African American. This number has grown significantly since the ASGA began its research on those involved in student government organizations. Even SA members have noticed more involvement by women and those of different races within the organization. Current SA President Allie Curtis has recognized the current gender gap in national politics and brought the “Elect Her” initiative to SU to encourage females to enter the collegiate political world. But to better represent the students of Syracuse University, people of all backgrounds — including gender, race, socioeconomic class and sexual identity — should continue to seek student leadership positions and become involved in SA.

by the daily orange This participation could one day alter the national political field. If more minority students gain experience working with college politics, it could increase the likelihood that they hold political office in the future. The “Elect Her” initiative encourages females to gain political experience in college then use those skills on the national political stage. While some students might not be interested in running for political office one day, they could still improve the university by offering their voices on student issues. The presidential candidates and their vice presidential partners could provide the encouragement needed for students from different backgrounds to seek student leadership. To ensure that SA is recruiting a diverse assembly, members should continue to reach out to every corner of the university, including any and all student groups. Social media can be used to attract members, but face-to-face outreach with these organizations will humanize SA and make it more approachable for other students. There is not one type of student at SU. The diversity of this year’s SA presidential and vice presidential candidates is commendable, but SA should continue to work to ensure that the diversity within its organization as a whole reflects the diversity of SU’s campus.

Pick your poison ESF, Syracuse community debate pros, cons of liquid natural gas illustration by andy casadonte | art director

By Leanna Kirschen



n environmental department has proposed new laws to allow liquefied natural gas stations to be built in New York State. LNG has been the subject of much debate since the 1970s, when it caused an explosion in Staten Island that killed 40 people. It can be dangerous and explosive because to be used, it needs to be kept under tremendous pressure and cold temperatures, said Michael Kelleher, executive director of Energy and Sustainability at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry, who looks at the economics of liquefied natural gas. The New York State Department of Envi-

ronmental Conservation is testing LNG as transportation fuel to make sure that it is safe and not causing any problems before it is used in any other areas, Kelleher said. Protestors gathered to voice their environmental and safety concerns at the Syracuse fairgrounds during an Oct.16 public information meeting about LNG held by the NYSDEC. LNG’s extraction requires the use of hydraulic fracturing. “It pollutes water and causes many equity issues,” said Nicole Harbodt, a sophomore environmental science major, referring to the fact that poorer communities often have worse-quality water. “There is no regulation on it, so it’s hard to tell what the effects will be because we don’t know how much water they’re contaminating.”

Harbodt is also a student organizer for Divest SU and ESF, which is a group that is currently working to persuade university officials to get rid of investments in large oil companies. But Kelleher doesn’t oppose hydrofracking and doesn’t think the university should divest from oil companies yet because there aren’t enough financially viable alternatives. The long-term consequences of using liquefied natural gas depend on what it would be replacing, Kelleher said. If liquefied natural gas is compared to solar or wind power, it has fossil fuel emissions and potential environmental damages. If liquefied natural gas is used in vehicles to replace oil, it could provide environmental benefits, he explained.

About half of the electricity in the country is generated through the use of coal, Kelleher said, adding that virtually all fuel for transportation comes from oil. “To the extent that you would liquefy gas to put it into a tank or vehicle, it could potentially reduce environmental damages,” he said. Harbodt, who also protested the use of hydrofracking at a climate rally in Washington, D.C. last year, said she believes that people are wrong to see the transition from coal to natural gas as progress. She added that people should pursue wind and solar power instead. Said Harbodt: “Personally, I think we’re just picking another poison.”

we can serve the campus is by having a diverse group within SA.” Having diversity in a school’s student government is critical, said Butch Oxendine, the executive director of the American Student Government Association. He said it’s important for a governing body to be a reflection of the people it represents. “Not all of your students are one race or gender or ethnicity, so you want to have a student government that looks like the students they represent,” Oxendine said. He said the best way to incorporate diversity is not by having quotas for representatives of an ethnicity or gender, but by having representatives actively talking to their peers. Oxendine added that the ASGA constantly


different perspective and have what it takes to move an organization forward,” Gresely said. When Ford, the current vice president of SA, joined the association his freshman year, he remembered it being “overwhelmingly white.” “Now when I look at SA, it’s like walking into a rainbow,” Ford said. “There’s just so many different types of people. Class standing, geographically, socioeconomically, racially, we have so much diversity now in SA.” Oxendine, the executive director of ASGA, said the best way to get more diverse groups involved in student government is making the organization relevant. “The first step if you want more people and different backgrounds is to analyze if what you’re doing is tangible and real,” Oxendine said. Even with diversity increasing within SA, all three candidates have discussed the issue of diversity and self-segregation on campus during their campaigns.

The American Student Government Association has tracked the percentages of males and females in student government leadership for the past decade. Here are some of the findings:


60 40 20 0 2008-9


does research on student governments across the country to see what types of students are involved at each school. He said its most recent data from the 2011-12 academic year shows that 52 percent of student government members are women. This is an increase from the 2003-04 study, which showed only 48 percent of members were women. The data showed that close to 60 percent of student government presidents were male, but that number decreased by almost 6 percent since 2004. Oxendine said the group also studies which ethnic groups are involved in student government. The latest studies show that 11 percent of student body presidents are African American. This number has grown significantly since the organization began doing research, he said. Diversity within SA has changed in the last few years, and Curtis and Ford have witnessed it firsthand. Curtis said she noticed a clear gender gap when she first joined the organization. “I remember standing up before the assembly and being like, ‘Well, there’s two women in the assembly.’ I just thought it was interesting there weren’t very many women involved at all,” Curtis said. Curtis said she has studied the involvement of women in student government, and found the main issue was that women were not running. She worked to bring “Elect Her” to campus, an initiative that encourages and trains women to run for student government and future political offices. The gap between the number of men and women involved in student government has decreased at SU, Curtis said. She added that women make up nearly one-third of SA. She also said the organization has gone from seeing almost all male cabinets to seeing women who are involved. All three current vice presidential candidates are women, something Gresely said shows real progress toward getting a wider range of people involved. “Women leaders are necessary. They bring a



Gresely said taking on the issue of self-segregation is difficult because it happens beyond the campus. But he said the way to start is by looking for something students all have in common. “The way you tackle self-segregation is by first understanding that we’re all students at SU,” Gresely said. “Regardless of our socioeconomic backgrounds or the color of our skin, we all have that one common thing, and that’s that we’re students at SU and we all bleed orange.” He added that for SA to begin working on the issue of self-segregation, it’s important to be inclusive of different types of people on campus, and to realize that each student has different interests. Rosales said a challenge of preventing selfsegregation is that progress is not easily measurable. But he said that should not deter SA from tackling the issue, adding that it’s important to take preventative measures against selfsegregation by actively promoting diversity. Ford said a difficulty of approaching selfsegregation is that in some cases, people have to change their mindset. “I think to take on the issue of self-segregation on campus you have to change the way all of us view diversity, whether it’s race, culture, ethnic, socioeconomic status, or religion,” Ford said. While each candidate sees self-segregation as an issue on campus that should be addressed, they each had different views on what this year’s diversity of candidates means for SA in the long run. Rosales said having minorities in leadership positions is important, and having three minority candidates running for president shows progress. Ford said he saw this year’s election as a sign of different types of people getting involved in a broader range of leadership positions, but said he isn’t sure if it’s a long-term trend. “I think it’s just those are the people that ran this year,” Ford said. “I fully believe next year it will go back to what it has been. I guess time will tell for that because this year could very well just be an outlier.”



wasn’t the security staff contracted to work at the event.” The pepper spray was discharged at the front entrance of TKE, Callisto said. At this time, he said it’s unknown who deployed it. Shanitra Fulgham, sophomore public relations major, was at the party when the pepper spray was used. “We were all just dancing, it was pretty packed in there,” she said. “Suddenly someone started to cough and then everyone starts coughing and we were breathing in and no one could breathe.” She said the crowd rushed for the back door but that the large number of people there — she estimated one or two hundred — kept everyone from being able to exit immediately. “It was hectic, and people were just getting trampled and you just couldn’t breathe so it felt like you were suffocating. It was really scary ‘cause you literally felt you were going to die,” she said. Fulgham said she didn’t see who sprayed the pepper spray. “I’ve heard so many different stories about what happened,” she said, adding that she doesn’t believe the incident to be the fraternity’s fault. “I don’t blame TKE, I don’t think it’s their fault at all,” she said. Fulgham said she felt the effects of the pepper spray until Saturday morning. “It was really bad. I was coughing and coughing,” she said. “It closes up your airways and then, even when you’re outside breathing air, you still can’t breathe.”



titled the Lou Reed/Delmore Schwartz Scholarship at SU to honor him and support aspiring creative writers, according to the news release. Reed drew much of his inspiration from SU professor Delmore Schwartz, who taught Reed. He referred to Schwartz as the first “great man” he ever encountered, crediting him for encouraging him to become a writer. Reed eventually honored him in the song “My House,” according to an online article published by People magazine. While attending SU, he hosted a late-night radio show on WAER titled, which played jazz, rhythm and blues and doo-wop music, according to an Oct. 27 Post Standard article. Reed collaborated with his friend from SU, guitarist-bassist Sterling Morrison, Welsh viola player John Cale and drummer Mau-


Another issue brought up at the debate was how candidates would reach out to first-year and transfer students, which is an important topic to OrangeSeeds, the group hosting the debate. “We wanted to focus on first-year and transfer students because OrangeSeeds is a first year and transfer program,” said Matt Fernandes, the public relations director for OrangeSeeds. Boles said she’d like to change the way transfer students are currently housed. She said since most transfer students are housed in Skyhalls, it’s difficult for them to integrate with the rest of the campus. Goldslager agreed with Boles about the housing situation, and also said improving orientation week activities would help

Fulgham said the incident was scarring and left many people upset, but she doesn’t think the brothers of TKE were at fault. “It was just traumatic and crazy but I want people to know that it wasn’t the frat’s fault and I don’t think they should be in trouble,” she said. One of the security guards outside TKE was hit with the pepper spray, said Department of Public Safety Officer Ed Babcock. It has not yet been confirmed if the house will be written up as a result of the incident, Babcock said. Pepper spray is neither allowed nor encouraged on campus, Callisto said. The two students who went to Crouse Hospital and Upstate Medical University Hospital have since been released — Callisto said he could not confirm which hospital either of the victims went to. “We’re conducting a full investigation,” he said. “The patrol officers are filing a report to our detectives.” Lawrence Sloane, a brother at TKE who was at the party Friday night, said he did not know whether DPS or the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs planned to take any action against the fraternity or against the security personnel. “We definitely don’t want this happening, and this definitely doesn’t happen often,” Sloane said. “It’s just a really bad chance occurrence.” Evan Konecky, a graduate assistant at the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs, was at the scene and declined to comment.

reen Tucker to form the band Velvet Underground in the 1960s. The band would go on to create one of the most influential rock albums of all time, “The Velvet Underground & Nico,” according to People. The band’s singles, “Rock & Roll” and “Sweet Jane,” earned it widespread recognition, including an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996, according to The Post-Standard. Reed also pursued a successful solo career, which gained critical acclaim. Both his involvement with the Velvet Underground and his solo career were characterized for exquisitely yet simply blending art and noise while telling stories of “street deals and odd characters,” according to the NPR article. “One chord is fine,” Reed said in the NPR article, “Two chords are pushing it. Three chords you’re into jazz.” Reed is survived by his wife, musician Laurie Anderson, according to the article.

first-year students make a smoother transition to campus. Lopez said improving freshman forum classes would be important as well. At the end of the debate, current SA President Allie Curtis asked the candidates about how they’d take on issues that women faced in leadership positions. All three candidates agreed it’s important for women to help each other toward the same goal. Fernandes said having a vice presidential debate was important because it gives students a chance to hear different voices during the campaign. “Presidents are usually very vocal during their campaigns, and we wanted to hear more from vice presidential candidates,” Fernandes said. “Hearing from who the president is choosing to align with is important as well.”

FAMILY TIES the sweet stuff in the middle

By Ian Simon-Curry STAFF WRITER

Complex directing, storyline result in melodramatic ‘Scorched’ performance


s its name suggests, “Scorched” is a searing, emotional drama that burns with devastating intensity. The play opened Oct. 23 at Syracuse Stage and runs through Nov. 10. The production, which explores the effect of a mother’s war-torn past as her children discover her mysterious history, is directed by Marcela Lorca who is returning to the Syracuse Stage after directing the musical “Caroline, or Change” in 2012. The storyline follows fraternal twins Janine and Simon as they carry out a series of strange instructions from their late mother’s will. Through it, they are told to deliver separate letters to their father and older brother, whom they have never met and know very little about. Though they are initially angry with Nawal, their mother, for leaving them with a cryptic mission, the twins eventually become committed to completing it as they learn more about her past. Eventually the search takes them to the Middle East, where they confront

Anyone who has been on Facebook in the last week has probably started seeing a curious influx of cartoons in their news feeds. Bitstrips, originally launched as a Facebook app in December 2012, allows users to create old-style newspaper comics starring themselves and their friends and publish the customized comics online. The mobile app was originally released for iPhone in late September, but saw a huge surge in popularity this week after the release of an iOS update and a version for Android. Bitstrips currently holds the No. 1 spot for free downloads in both the App Store and the Google Play store, according to app analytics firm App Annie. After downloading the app, users can create their own customized cartoon avatars, specifying details like face shape, clothing, hair color and more. From there, users can choose from more than 1,000 templates and script their own cartoon scenarios by filling in the comics’ captions and word bubbles. Bitstrips encourages users to “add a costar” by designing an avatar for a friend not on the app or by connecting with fellow Bitstrips users and their avatars. Once finished, the cartoons can be published via social media.

It’s easy to see why the app has taken off: It’s clever, easy to use and surprisingly addictive. New templates, added each day, range from quirky to relatable to timely scenarios — look out for a lot of Halloween comics this week. At the same time, the app has come under fire for glitches and slow loading times, averaging a rating of just 1.5 stars in the iOS App Store and a slightly better but still less-than-ideal 3.7 for the Android app. The sudden influx of new downloads was a blessing but also a curse for Bitstrips’ creators: Both the Facebook and mobile apps have been down several times in the past week due to server overload. While it remains to be seen whether Bitstrips will continue to be successful, the app creators have big plans. In an interview with VentureBeat, Bitstrips vice president of marketing Shahan Panth called Bitstrips “the next step in the evolution of social media” thanks to its ability to express a wider range of emotions or experiences. Eventually, Panth said, Bitstrips characters may be translated into real life in the form of stuffed toys. “The next big brand is you and your friends,” he said. “You are the next superhero.”

Desserts ranked by taste, appearance


A la Mode’s chocolate chip cookies are about as standard as it gets. These hockey puck-sized desserts are suspiciously round in a way that suggests they might not be made from scratch. The cookies are dry and seriously lacking in chocolate chips. While some bites had a few measly morsels, others were completely devoid of any chocolate at all. The crumbly dough was overly sweet, and had a noticeably weird aftertaste. If you’re looking for a cookie that tastes like your grandmother made it, this is not the place — unless your grandmother serves you stale Chips Ahoy.


As an establishment solely focused on selling cookies, it’s not surprising that Insomnia has the standard chocolate chip down pat. With large chunks of chocolate in soft, crumbly dough, this cookie is exactly what you imagine when you’re craving the classic sweet treat. In typical Insomnia fashion, however, these cookies practically come with a side order of grease. They also lack the slight saltiness of a cookie made in a more homemade setting. Still, these treats are dependable and can be ordered at any hour of the day — the clear makings of a winner in our book.

For candy lovers, Oct. 31 couldn't come soon enough. The entire month is practically an excuse to indulge in sugary goodness. But for the everyday sweet tooth craving, Pulp has compared some local treats to trick your tastebuds into thinking it's time for Halloween. — Compiled by The Daily Orange feature staff




Despite an appetizing presentation, Roly Poly’s white chocolate macadamia cookie was a let down. There was too much happening in each bite. A shocking citrusy taste overpowered everything else. It was like taking a bite of a lemon: so sour it makes you scrunch up your face — a very unpleasant surprise for a cookie. In addition, it was infused with a nauseating amount of sugar. And while the ideal cookie has a degree of warm gooeyness to them, this one was far too soft. This specialty cookie doesn’t warrant more than a couple of bites.







Roly Poly’s chocolate chip cookies were large and soft with just enough chocolate chips and a good balance of saltiness in the dough to counteract the chocolate’s sweetness. They were also less greasy than Insomnia’s, which is a plus if you plan on using your hands after snacking. The cookies tasted homemade, with more flavor depth than the typical grocery store dessert. But beware of the homemade irregularities — while the outer edges were soft, some cookies had insides that were almost raw. There’s nothing wrong with homemade dough, but it needs to be cooked all the way through to be palatable.

These Insomnia cookies are some of the messiest. When they’re hot, they’re just as gooey as actual s’mores. But you get the texture of marshmallows, not the taste. And without being told there are actual graham cracker bits in the cookie, you might not notice them at all. There’s no crunch and you certainly won’t taste them, either. The dominant flavor is by far the chocolate, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. But make sure you eat these while they’re warm, or you’ll miss out on the sticky s’more experience.

A la Mode Cafe’s buttery Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup cookie is filled with peanut butter chunks and topped off nicely with the chocolate candy. But while the Reese’s taste comes out from time to time, the peanut butter cup is not evenly distributed throughout and the dessert is severely lacking some chocolate, leading to an overwhelming peanut butter taste. While sometimes dry and crumbly, this cookie is great for the peanut butter lovers out there — just be sure to pair your cookie with a nice, cold glass of milk.

Pop culture-inspired costumes hinder individuality, creativity on Halloween


alloween is the one day out of the entire year when it’s acceptable to throw the truism “just be yourself” out the window. While checking out the latest costume trends online, I couldn’t help but notice the inordinate number of costumes based on popular TV shows and other snippets of pop culture. For example, there are “sexy” hazmat suits that you can wear unzipped, with little underneath, and claim you are a strange approximation of Walter White from “Breaking Bad.” The Internet also suggests donning some camo and a fake beard to be Si from “Duck Dynasty.” Or, if you happen to have a tiara and an old prom dress, douse yourself with red paint to be “Carrie” just in time for the remake. But people who profane the sanctity of this day by dressing as Miley Cyrus for Halloween break my heart. You can be anything and you choose to be the girl who is famous for twerking? I fail to see the appeal of parading around in a fuzzy teddy bear leotard and forcing your tongue to loll out of your mouth all night. But the most disturbing costume I came across was a short, tight black dress with a boney ribcage, spinal column and pelvis painted on it with a matching gold belt, which functions as a tape measure. The costume is called “Anna Rexia” and is a repugnant display of how the innocence of Halloween has been lost. The “Anna Rexia” costume sends the message that depriving yourself of food and being dangerously thin — literally skeletal — is sexy


never late but always fashionable and fashionable. This could not be further from the truth. Anorexia is a serious medical condition that the fashion industry has only just begun to acknowledge as dangerous. By no means should this be a “costume.” I fear Halloween has become nothing more than a day to regurgitate every TV phenomenon and pop-culture oddity of the past year in the most provocative way possible. That isn’t what it should be. Where is the imagination? It is far more fun to create your own costume using some basic staples from your wardrobe and supplementing them with thrift store finds. If you have a gray dress in your closet, you could pair it with a black cape or jacket, bangles and rings and fashion a pair of antennae using an old headband, some pipe cleaners and a hotglue. And voilà. You can be an alien. So don’t get tricked into wearing a costume you aren’t crazy about, and treat yourself to a fun, fashionable and safe evening.

the truth of their mother’s life and their own family history. Actors Soraya Broukhim and Dorien Makhloghi brought Janine and Simon to life. The pair successfully conveyed the siblings’ changing relationship during their journey and stood strong together at the play’s end. Kenya Brome was another standout in the cast, playing the role of Sawda, the loyal friend of the twins’ mother. Brome’s character sang throughout the play, and her deep, rich voice underscored the action with a haunting drama. Playwright Wajdi Mouawad set the story in an unnamed Middle Eastern country. By excluding historical and geographic specifics, he allows the audience to focus on the story’s plot line and human elements. But savvy audience members may deduce that “Scorched” is based on the Lebanese Civil War, a conflict that began in 1975 and lasted 15 years. Despite intentionally leaving the story’s exact location unspecified, Mouawad has acknowledged that he based much of play on the conflict that tore his home country apart. He based the character of Nawal on a real-life Lebanese nationalist named Souha Bechara, who spent a decade in prison after a failed attempt to kill a general of the South Lebanese Army. The scenes constantly moved between space and time, telling the story of the twins and the history of their mother in tandem. Because of that, versatile scenery was a necessity. To accommodate this need, scenic designer John Arnone created an exquisitely flexible mix of walls on wheels, mismatched chairs and panels of sheer fabric.

o c t ober 2 8 , 2 013

A series of animations were projected onto the panels that distinguished locations and actions. In one instance, a mathematical diagram drawn by Janine transformed into a moving dotted line that indicated travel and transition. At times, though, directorial choices over-enhanced the already intense story and pushed the performance into the murky realm of melodrama. Both acts opened with brief, physical pieces in which actors used abstract movements to convey the play’s energy and gut-wrenching emotion. The pieces demonstrated the cast’s versatility as performers, but ultimately were unnecessary and overdramatic and took away from the story. In addition, Mouawad’s style of writing placed much of the emotional development in extended monologues. These passages were poetic and beautifully written, but often delivered in a way that deadened their power. Stationary actors ploughed through them hardly taking a moment to breathe, making the emotion of the lines feel forced. Overall, a less heavy-handed approach to direction by Lorca would have allowed the story’s significance to come across more clearly. That is not to say, though, that this does not come through at all. Despite the production’s shortcomings, audiences will leave feeling thrilled and thoughtful. A climactic revelation toward the end of the play ties the story together both in terms of plot and emotional development. In the end, “Scorched” is a story about love and forgiveness as well as finding the strength to move beyond tragedy. For that reason, the production largely overcame its weaknesses and provided a hauntingly beautiful experience that audiences will not soon forget.

Syracuse claims monumental win over No. 3 Boston College By Matt Miselis CONTRIBUTING WRITER

A thunderous applause echoed from the Syracuse locker room. Paul Flanagan’s squad had just shocked No. 3 Boston College. Its first win against a top-five opponent and first-ever win against the Eagles. “We understand the recSYRACUSE 4 ipe for our team to be sucBOSTON COLLEGE 1 cessful. We have to work SYRACUSE 5 hard,” Flanagan said. UNION 2 “When we have faltered so far this year, it’s when we have been outworked.” After losing four of its last five games, Syracuse was desperate for an offensive eruption. The Orange averaged less than three goals a game during this stretch of play. Fortunately for Flanagan, his team answered the call with a combined nine goals in two victories. Syracuse (4-4) executed its offensive game plan at the right time, defeating Boston College (5-2) 4-1 on Friday in front of 258 at Tennity Ice Pavilion. SU then knocked off Union (3-5) 5-2 on Saturday. From the first drop of the puck, Syracuse matched the Eagles in every facet of the game. There was no sign of intimidation, a problem that plagued the Orange while playing nationally ranked Clarkson a few weeks ago. Instead, Flanagan’s squad was aggressive on the attack. Freshman Jessica Sibley

scored for the Orange less than three minutes into the first period to put her team on top 1-0. “I went around the circle and saw that I would be able to cut to the net,” Sibley said. “It was good to get first on the board. The team got really pumped up and we kept the momentum going from there.” A one-goal lead was not a comfortable setting for a team that has been struggling on the offensive end. When a power play opportunity came early in the second period, forward Allie LaCombe capitalized on the assist from defender Kaillie Goodnough to give the Orange a 2-0 lead. “The goal I give credit to my teammates,” LaCombe said. “It was a power play goal. It was

Scharfe scored with less than two minutes left in the period to give the Orange a three-goal cushion. The Eagles answered when forward Kate Leary scored midway into the third period to cut the lead to two. But any momentum that Boston College tried to gain did not even last a minute. Forward Sadie St. Germain scored 48 seconds later to secure the biggest win in program history, supplanting a win over then-No. 8

Cornell on Jan. 5, 2010. “That’s a good win for us,” Flanagan said. “If anything, that builds confidence when you get down into league play and in big games against good teams. That’s something to fall back on.” Less than 24 hours later, Syracuse capitalized on four power play opportunities en route to a win over Union. “It’s big to execute on our power plays,” Scharfe said. “I think we kept it simple today, which really helped to keep shots on net. Things went our way today which really helped our momentum.”


a back, that was the single most growing moment of our team system and style of play,” Bradley said. “It allowed us to go from being a good team to a great team, and that really made a lot of difference in the way we play.” Just as Page has been a catalyst for Syracuse in 2013, her family continues to be the biggest influence in her field hockey career. She said that none of her accomplishments would be possible without the support of her parents. “They gave up a lot of themselves to help me and have me succeed,” she said. Krista Page said her proudest moment as a parent came during Syracuse’s overtime loss to No. 1 Maryland on Oct. 18. It was during that game that, after watching Jordan develop as a player for the past eight years, she fully grasped how mature her daughter had become. “She played out of her mind in my opinion that day,” Krista Page said as she fought back tears. “There were national team players on that field, and there she is shutting them down. “It just brings tears to your eyes because you want nothing more than for your kids to do the best that they can do.” Even Jordan is amazed by how far she has come since she stood up from that aluminum bleacher seat in 2005 and began the next chapter of her life. Although her main objective has yet to be achieved, she still finds complete fulfillment in her ability to handle any bounce on the field. “We’re still striving to win a national championship here, which was an ultimate goal when I came to Syracuse,” Page said. “But it’s just going out, working hard, and seeing results happen. Just getting closer and closer to the ultimate goal that we all have here.”


something and repeat it on the spot.” It might have been the first time the two worked together, but it wouldn’t be the last. Page said her multiple visits to Old Dominion shaped her as a player. She received one-on-one lessons from Anders and saw what it was like to play for a powerhouse Division I program. “It was beneficial in the fact that I got to play, and I developed my skills a little bit quicker than others,” she said. “Not just my skills. My knowledge of the game is greatly owed to that.” That knowledge paid off in the high school ranks, as Page went on to score 66 goals for Cocalico. Her lone regret was failing to win a state championship, Cocalico’s closest opportunity being a finals appearance in 2010. That’s why Page had to choose a college team capable of winning a championship. Mother Krista said this desire, along with Jordan’s adulation for former Orange midfielder Shannon Taylor, led her daughter to Central New York. Anders was disappointed that Page didn’t pick Old Dominion, but she still wished her the best. “A player with her caliber, you would certainly want to coach on your team,” she said. “But that’s a family decision and I’m sure it was the right one for her.” Anders also said that Page is one of the most coachable players she has ever worked with, one that rarely repeats mistakes and does whatever it takes to help the team. Page’s current head coach, Ange Bradley, found that out when the junior accepted a position change earlier this season. “When we shifted her from a midfield to

Brooks powers SU to sweep against Wake Forest, Cornell By Tyler Piccotti STAFF WRITER

Junior forward Lauren Brooks fired both the opening strike and the final dagger for No. 3 Syracuse (14-2, 3-2 Atlantic Coast) this weekend. On Saturday, Brooks opened the scoring SYRACUSE 5 in the 12th minute and WAKE FOREST 2 sparked the Orange to a 5-2 victory over No. 16 Wake SYRACUSE 3 Forest (10-7, 0-5) in front CORNELL 2 of 404 fans at J.S. Coyne Stadium. One day later, Brooks tallied her second overtime goal of the season to carry Syracuse to a dramatic 3-2 win past unranked Cornell (9-6, 3-2 Ivy League). It was her sec-

ond score of the game and team-leading 12th goal of the season. “I was all over the girls pretty hard this

week in practice,” head coach Ange Bradley said, “and I was really happy to see Lauren respond on the weekend with a couple goals, very important goals for us. So it tells me I got to keep on her.” Brooks put the Orange on the board only five minutes into the Cornell game when she poked home a shot by Emma Russell that Karlee Farr initially deflected in front of the cage. Only three minutes later, forward Serra Degnan doubled the Orange lead on a penalty corner. Leonie Geyer ripped a bullet from the top of the shooting circle that was denied by goalie Carolyn Horner. However, the rebound came right to Degnan and she slapped it past Horner for her second goal of the weekend. “We really worked in practice on cutting across and finishing at the top of the cage,” Degnan said. “Ange really pushed us this week to really have strong shots on cage.” But after Degnan scored, the Orange offense became stagnant for the rest of the first half and much of the second. Syracuse struggled to muster quality shots within the circle, and turnovers often derailed any chance at a fast break toward the cage. Bradley feverishly instructed players to move toward the ball and help teammates in distress, but by the time the Orange recovered, the Big Red had already mounted a comeback. Marisa Siergiej kicked it off with her goal on a penalty corner in the 21st minute and Elly Plappert followed with 15 minutes remaining. A stunned Syracuse crowd watched in silence as

The Orange had three opportunities to retake the lead on three penalty corners during the final nine minutes, but Horner shut the door each time. The Orange headed to overtime for the second time in three games. “The field is your friend and your enemy, and there’s a lot of space to cover,” Bradley said. “Our kids punished ourselves today by putting us into overtime, and having to play 10 extra minutes in this kind of space really isn’t smart.” But on Sunday, Syracuse got away with it. With six minutes remaining in the first extra session, Brooks ran onto the field as a substitute

and found herself with a golden opportunity mere seconds later. “Emma had the ball on the fast break and there was one defender and the goalkeeper,” Brooks said. “She slid a nice ball on the righthand side and I pulled left and the goalie slid, so I put it over her.” Although the Orange was able to escape with a win, Bradley said that the team needs to correct a lot of mistakes before next Saturday’s season finale against North Carolina. “They killed us in the Final Four and that is very fresh in our minds. We got hammered,” Bradley said. “But we’re a different team, and we’re going to come back and fight hard.”

Orange climbs to .500 in ACC play with wins By Eric Riter STAFF WRITER

After a sweep on the road last weekend, Syracuse carried the momentum home and moved to .500 for the first time all season. The Orange extended its win streak to four straight conference wins, its longest SYRACUSE 3 since 2009. SU (10-12, 5-5 Coast) played GEORGIA TECH 0 Atlantic Georgia Tech (8-14, 2-8) on SYRACUSE 3 Friday night in the CarCLEMSON 1 rier Dome, winning in three sets. The Orange’s fourth win came Sunday afternoon when it won in four sets against Clemson (11-10, 5-5) at the Women’s Building. “It feels great,” freshman setter Erica Handley said with enthusiasm. “Things are finally turning around for us. All the things are starting to click for us that we have been working on at practice.” Friday night marked the first time Syracuse has won this season in the Dome. The Orange won the first set 25-18 and controlled the following two, winning 25-22 and 25-19, respectively. Outside hitter Silvi Uattara led the offensive charge with 13 kills and served up four aces. Her three-game double-double streak came to an end, though, as she finished with eight digs. But it was defense that sent the Orange to its third straight win. Melina Violas led the team for the sixth straight game with her season-high 16 digs. “I think that we really love playing here,” middle blocker Lindsey McCabe said about the Dome. “We like getting the opportunity to play here. Hopefully the athletic program will continue to let us play here.” On Sunday, Syracuse didn’t start as well. The Orange fell behind 6-1 in the first set, then were down 16-9 later on. Head coach Leonid Yelin called a timeout and everything changed from there. Syracuse scored 10 of the next 13 points to even the score at 19 apiece. A big reason behind this was the team taking more risks, Yelin said. The set went into extra points, but Syracuse ultimately claimed a 26-24 victory on a Valeriya Shaipova kill. “Where is the line of playing risky and playing dumb?” Yelin said. “It’s very important, you have to play risky. You cannot play safe all the time.” The second set was totally dominated by Syracuse’s offense. Of the 25 points Syracuse scored, 21 came from kills. Handley also dished out 19 assists in just the second set alone. After dropping the third set, the Orange battled back to claim victory in the fourth. Syracuse went up 24-to-16, but the Tigers would not give up. Clemson went on a 5-0 run, but Nicolette Serratore ended the game by splitting two defenders with a spike to seal the win. Uattara again led the team offensively, racking up 18 kills and 11 digs while Handley added 55 assists and three aces. With the wins beginning to pile up as the Orange has won five of its last six, a more energized squad is beginning to emerge. “Of course it feels great,” Yelin said. “We have had some ups and downs this year. Winning always feels great. Expectations are much higher.”

Orange fails to capitalize on opportunities in loss to Terps By Austin Mirmina STAFF WRITER

Maryland goalkeeper Rachelle Beanlands braced herself for a split second before watching the ball sail harmlessly out of bounds. Maya Pitts broke free in the 33rd minute and a hard shot toward SYRACUSE 1 ripped Beanlands. It was a prime MARYLAND 3 opportunity for Syracuse to get on the board in the early stages of a game it needed to win. “If we put those goals away early, it shouldn’t always come down to playing defense,” goalkeeper Brittany Anghel said. “We can’t fault anyone for the effort, but we had a lot of chances and we couldn’t get it done.” The Orange, who needed a win to remain eligible for postseason play, failed to convert

any of its opportunities in the early going. SU’s (7-10-1, 3-8-1 Atlantic Coast) defense had difficulty containing UMD forward Hayley Brock, who scored the game-winning goal in the second half and propelled Maryland (9-8-0, 5-6-0) to a 3-1 win over the Orange in front of 212 fans at SU Soccer Stadium. From the opening whistle, the Orange relied on a heavy press to force turnovers and create scoring chances in the final third. Head coach Phil Wheddon said SU executed its game plan well, but lacked composure on the attack. “We decided to chase and press (the Terrapins), put them under pressure, and it worked,” Wheddon said. “They gave us opportunities to score, which we didn’t capitalize on, and that was the difference in the game.” Despite getting outplayed in the first half, Syracuse trailed just 1-0 and the players remained hopeful they could spur a secondhalf turnaround. “Coming out of halftime, we knew the scoring was going to come,” Kayla Afonso said. “We just tried to keep playing hard.” SU gathered a bit of momentum after Alexis Koval was taken down in the box early in the second half. Sophomore Jackie Firenze buried the game-tying penalty kick and gave the Orange new life. But the quality of SU’s defensive pressure slowly deteriorated as the speed and versatility

In the 57th minute, Ashley Spivey hit a lead pass to Brock who sprinted forward to challenge Anghel for possession of the ball. Brock smartly chipped a shot over Anghel’s head and gave the Terrapins a 2-1 lead they would not relinquish. “(Brock) was clearly head and shoulders above everyone else,” Wheddon said. “That seemed to be a big difference.” The Orange continued to apply offensive pressure as it scrambled to even the score. In the 57th minute, Pitts used her body to deflect

a cross that bounced toward the net. Beanlands made a diving save, and it was another missed opportunity for SU. Wheddon admitted that fatigue played a factor down the stretch as Syracuse had trouble sustaining pressure. The Terrapins added another goal in the 69th minute, but the damage was already done. “Maryland was very potent in front of the goal and we were not,” Wheddon said. “We had some great opportunities to score and we didn’t.”

Syracuse defense puts up strong performance in loss By Josh Hyber STAFF WRITER

Maryland forward Mikias Eticha shook his head in disbelief and jogged slowly back toward the midfield. Eticha’s recent shot seemed destined for the back of the net, but Syracuse goalkeeper Alex Bono corralled it into his chest. Eticha pulled his jersey to his mouth — chewing away his frustration. The game remained scoreless. For 55 minutes, Syracuse (9-6-1, 2-6-1 Atlantic Coast) held No. 12 Maryland’s offense, ranked second in the country, off the score sheet. Terra-

"That was probably one of (Mullins') more quiet nights. Having said that, they’re a good enough team that if he doesn’t score, they found a way to win the game.” Ian McIntyre SU HEAD COACH

pins midfielder Dan Metzger scored the game’s lone goal, and Maryland (8-3-5, 5-1-3 ACC) bested Syracuse 1-0 in front of 677 at SU Soccer Stadium on Saturday, but the Orange’s defense was rigid throughout. “I thought we played well defensively for most of the game. We were even on shots.

They just happened to net one,” SU defender Skylar Thomas said. “Maybe a poor defensive mistake by our team, but he hit a good shot into the top corner and we went down 1-0.” Syracuse started five defenders: Brandon Albert, Chris Makowski, Thomas, Alseth and Murrell. McIntyre said Albert started in place of midfielder Nick Perea because Perea missed the team’s pregame meal. Maryland features 2012 MAC Hermann Trophy finalist Patrick Mullins and runs a unique centralized offense, so SU outside defenders Jordan Murrell and Oyvind Alseth played more in the midfield, often leaving only three SU defenders back. “I thought our defenders did very well limiting (Mullins’) chances,” SU head coach Ian McIntyre said. “There’s a reason why he’s the top goal scorer in the ACC and there’s a reason why he was voted by his peers as the best player in college soccer last year. “But that was probably one of his more quiet nights. Having said that, they’re a good enough team that if he doesn’t score, they found a way to win the game.” The more defense-focused lineup may have been just what the Orange needed against the highly skilled Terrapins. Central defenders Thomas and Makowski were able to keep a focus on Mullins while other areas of the field weren’t jeopardized. Maryland was mostly forced to shoot from outside the box — easy pickings for Bono. In the 20th minute, Makowski was beaten by Mullins on a through ball, but recovered in time and sent a return pass to Bono. Minutes

later, Mullins split Thomas and Albert, but Thomas recovered and cleared the ball out of the defensive zone. In the 34th minute, Maryland’s Sunny Jane attempted to send a leading pass to Mullins, but Thomas used his 6-foot-4 frame to lay out and break up the pass. Throughout the match it seemed like wherever Mullins was, so was Thomas. And most of the time, so was Makowski. Thomas and Mullins fought back and forth late in the first half. Mullins pushed Thomas after the whistle, to which the Syracuse crowd voiced its displeasure. Early in the second half, Thomas kicked Mullins in the right shin and the forward fell to the ground. But in such a tightly contested match, one chance and one goal was all the winning team needed. In the 55th minute, Jane had the ball just outside of the box to the Bono’s left. The forward passed to Metzger above the box in the center of the field, and sent a brilliant strike into the cage — a practically perfect shot that Bono really had no chance of saving. The goal was only one of two shots Bono had to face for the entire game. The stout Syracuse defense allowed six other shots that weren’t on goal. “We just tried to stay strong defensively,” Perea said. “Whoever was open we tried to pick them up. If there’s a man next to you, mark them up. We didn’t do anything special, just played Syracuse soccer.”

While both Murrell and Alseth gave the Orange attack a small number of chances, the shift in tactics didn’t yield any tangible results. “They had more possession of the ball today, I thought,” sophomore midfielder Stefanos Stamoulacatos said, “but the ball just didn’t go in the net and next time we got to push a little more.” Freshman forward Chris Nanco had the two best chances to put SU on the board. Less than a minute into the second half, Murrell slid a pass between two Maryland defenders, which gave Nanco a one-on-one with Steffen. After Nanco slipped past Steffen, he overran the ball in front of an open net, and it was cleared by the Terrapin defense a moment later. Then with less than six minutes left in the game, Nanco struck a shot that seemed destined for the back of the net. But Steffen’s only save of the night — an acrobatic dive to his left — was the finishing touch on his shutout. “I thought I could have hit it a little harder, I tried to hit a little curl in top shelf,” Nanco said. “But after I (shot) it I realized I made the wrong choice.” For the final five minutes the crowd — which vehemently stomped on the bleachers throughout the match — was silent and McIntyre’s voice was the only sound in the stadium. After the game, he said he was happier with SU’s play than he was after most of the games this season. He listed prior ACC losses to thenNo. 4 Notre Dame and Virginia, a recent tie to Pittsburgh and even a win against Duke on Sept. 20 as matches in which the Orange performed worse. Currently, Syracuse is two points short of a

The transition into the ACC hasn’t been picturesque, but the Orange can still turn its shaky conference showing into a mild success. “We’re getting up there, we’re getting up there slowly,” Stamoulacatos said, “and I think we are going to do big things.” @dougherty_ jesse

Orange fails to score in loss to Terps By Jesse Dougherty ASST. COPY EDITOR

After smothering Maryland’s offense for 55 minutes, Syracuse’s defense left a gaping hole in the middle of its box. Terrapin forward Sunny June hit a pass into the open space and Dan SYRACUSE 0 Metzger ran in and one-timed a MARYLAND 1 shot. A helpless Alex Bono leapt to his left but Metzger perfectly placed the ball in the top-left corner of the net. “It was a goal worthy of winning a game,” SU head coach Ian McIntyre said, “it’s just a shame it was scored by (Maryland).” Bono quickly got to his feet and encouraged his teammates while clapping his hands. But 35 minutes later the final whistle sounded and Metzger’s goal was the only dent in the box score. Syracuse (9-6-1, 2-6-1 Atlantic Coast) couldn’t find the net in a 1-0 loss to No. 12 Maryland (8-3-5, 5-1-3) at SU Soccer Stadium on Saturday night in front of 677 fans. The Terrapins and Orange each tallied at least seven shots, but Syracuse couldn’t get on the scoreboard against a stingy Maryland defense. But even though the Orange fell short, McIntyre was pleased with his team’s effort. “I don’t want to get too carried away because we lost the game, but that was one of the best performances that I’ve had as a coach here at Syracuse,” McIntyre said. “We just lost 1-0 at home to Maryland and I’m being asked if I’m frustrated, I think that’s a good sign.” For much of the game, two seemingly even teams fought for possession in the midfield. Scoring opportunities surfaced sparingly for both sides, as both Bono and Maryland goalkeeper Zack Steffen finished with a lone save each. The Orange varied its usual formation to gain an offensive edge. McIntyre started five defenders, which allowed outside backs Jordan Murrell and Oyvind Alseth to push forward to try and jumpstart the Orange attack from the wings.

Now, the midfielder-turneddefender is an integral part of Syracuse’s defense. Thanks to Page’s change in position, SU has found its chemistry at just the right time.

After switching to defense, Page transforms SU into title contender By Tyler Piccotti



rista Page had played field hockey at Catawba College and decided to make the sport a part of her adult life by accepting the head coaching position at Cocalico (Pa.) Senior High School 13 years ago. Her daughter Jordan, though, originally wanted no part of field hockey. So when her mother dragged her and the Cocalico team to a summer field hockey camp run by former Old Dominion head coach Beth Anders, the younger Page was unwilling to leave the bleachers. But once Jordan built up the courage to join everyone on the pitch, Krista Page immediately knew which sport her daughter should pursue. “She really wasn’t sure what she wanted to do.

“I really enjoy Syracuse, the atmosphere here, the coaching staff here and what the program represents,” she said. “Syracuse was the best fit for me.” It was the final destination of a journey that began in 2005. It all started during the summer of that year when Page finally picked up a stick at Beth Anders’ camp and trotted onto the field, not thinking her decision would completely alter her future. But as those in attendance would soon find out, she was a natural. Even Anders, who led Old Dominion to nine national championships during her illustrious coaching career, took notice immediately. “You could tell she was going to be good from the get-go,” Anders said. “She could see someone do
