Student blog under investigation By Dara McBride Asst. News Editor

andrew renneisen | staff photographer randy Cohen , author of the The New York Times Magazine column The Ethicist, questions if people can always act ethically during Tuesday’s University Lecture. Cohen admitted even his ethical solutions are based on common sense and humor, rather than expertise.

Len Audaer checked his e-mail last Friday and discovered he is under investigation for harassment. “I have received a charging statement from a student against you and have begun an investigation of the charges. The charges are extremely serious,” read the e-mail from Gregory Germain, an associate professor of law at Syracuse University’s College of Law. On Monday, Audaer, 24, a secondyear law student focusing on national security and counterterrorism law, found out in a meeting with Germain and Tomas Gonzalez, senior assistant dean for Student Life, that the college officials suspect he is the author of a satirical blog, which some have deemed offensive, about the College

Columnist infuses wit into everyday ethical dilemmas Hundreds unite By Kristin Ross Contributing Writer

The sidewalks were filthy to Randy Cohen before New York City passed a law requiring people to pick up after their dogs about 30 years ago. After the law passed, Cohen said the majority of people followed it, even though it was not enforced. “It utterly changed the way we behave,” said Cohen, a columnist for The New York Times Magazine. “There should be a monument for this law, although it would probably be disgusting.” Cohen spoke Tuesday evening as a part of the University Lectures series in Hendricks Chapel about how changing the ethics of public policy can change the behavior of a community. Cohen described two subtopics

when dealing with ethics: “What is the right thing to do?” and “How do we get people to do it?” Cohen said most people generally agree it is wrong to lie, cheat and steal. But he asked if people follow these moral rules on a daily basis. “I am not hired to personify a virtue, but to analyze it,” he said after explaining he does not have a degree in ethics. Cohen said he thinks he was hired to write his column, The Ethicist, because of his humorous take on the subject. He is the winner of five Emmy Awards, three of which are for his humorous writing for “Late Night with David Letterman.” “If we want to change people’s behavior, the best way to do it is to address ourselves to questions of character as a community,” Cohen said.

To prove this, Cohen gave multiple examples of how rules and regulations affect how the community responds to different situations, such as the law that required New Yorkers to pick up after their dogs. At the end of Cohen’s speech, the floor was open for questions. One audience member said polls show, time and time again, the majority of the public hates negative political ads, and he asked Cohen why politicians keep running new ads if they produce such negative results. Cohen said polls are known to be inaccurate because people believe what’s out there, regardless of what the truth may be. “People say they don’t like political ads, but they in fact respond to them,” Cohen said. “It’s a lack of self-knowledge on the part of the

responder.” If there was a poll asking whether people kicked their dogs, everyone would of course say ‘no,’ but that is not necessarily the truth, Cohen said. “Character has to be consistent, or it doesn’t mean anything,” he said. Nikki Horgen, a freshman public relations major, said the speech was a fun way to look at ethics. “I thought he used humor in a good way and intertwined it well with the message,” Horgen said. Horgen said she agreed with Cohen that people are not as prone to do the right thing when in a group setting. She said it is hard for one person to stand up and do the right thing when there are so many people around doing another thing, even in everyday situations, such as see cohen page 6

Green pen marks appeared on every paper professor Bill Glavin returned to his students. It’s a small detail, but it’s one of many that make Glavin unforgettable in the eyes of those who knew him. “Instead of telling you what you did wrong, the green pen helped you see where to go,” said Sarah Rainone, a 2001 alumna.

Officials push to expand wiretapping law

Law enforcement and counterterrorism officials are pushing to overhaul a federal law that would require phones and broadband carriers to ensure networks can be wiretapped, according to The New York Times. The legislation is in response to upgrades and new services that have caused technical problems for surveillance. A task force began to draft a new legislation to strengthen and expand the Communications Assistance to Law Enforcement Act of 1994, which states telecommunication and broadband companies must design services so surveillance can take place immediately after court orders are issued. No agreement has been made regarding the details of the legislature, but it is intended to be submitted by next year, according to The New York Times. This serves as an example of the problem behind how to balance Internet freedom and security needs as technology evolves, according to The New York Times.

The attack ended when special forces units killed the remaining militants. A total of 17 people were wounded, including six police officers. No one took responsibility for the attack, but it was similar to violence carried out by Islamic insurgents, according to The New York Times. The cause of the attack is linked to remains of separatist movements that kept Russian forces at bay during the 1990s. The attack is similar to one on Tsentoroi in August. The resurgence of attacks poses a challenge for Chechnya’s leader, Ramzan Kadyrov, according to The New York Times.

US student support for Obama drops, poll finds By Susan Kim Copy Editor

Melissa Canales voted for Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential election. But now, she is frustrated with the decisions he has made during his first two years as president. “Before he used to appeal to us with student loans, and now, it’s like — that’s it,” said Canales, a junior accounting major. Canales said she wishes Obama would appeal more to students, like he did during his presidential campaign. She has had difficulty taking out private student loans since Obama was in office, she said.

“A lot of people think Obama is going to come in, rip off his shirt, and they’ll see a Superman sign, and he’ll take care of all the world’s problems.” Daniel Fitzpatrick

former president and current member of College Republicans

Only 44 percent of students nationwide currently approve of the way Obama is handling his job as president, which is a decrease from the 60 percent of students who approved in May 2009, according to a September survey by mtvU and The Associated Press. There were 2,207 randomly selected 18- to 24-year-old students from 40 four-year universities with at least 1,000 undergraduates who participated in the survey. The question about Obama was one of 48 questions on the

survey, which was mostly about how students use technology. The excitement surrounding Obama’s youth, energy and vitality has died down since Obama took office and faced the challenges of governing, said Robert Wilson, faculty adviser for College Democrats at Syracuse University. “Students, like many people in the rest of the country, are frustrated by the lack of progress on many major issues,” Wilson said. Wilson said people tend to overlook Obama’s accomplishments during his first two years in office, such as avoiding a second Great Depression, because there have not been tangible results. “The fear was, when he was coming in, the country was going to slip into another Depression. And we didn’t,” Wilson said. “We’ve avoided this enormous catastrophe, but you don’t really get credited.” The percent of students who disapprove of the way Obama is handling his job as president increased from 15 percent in May 2009 to 27 percent in September 2010, according to the press survey. But Wilson said Obama has been focusing on students, especially on important issues that will affect them in the future, such as global warming. “One of the things he’s trying to do is put a set of particularly economic, social and environmental policies that will improve things for the long term,” Wilson said. “Long-term problems that students will be living with for decades to come.” Daniel Fitzpatrick, former president and current member of College Republicans, said he has noticed support for Obama on SU campus has waned. He said he has seen less people wearing Obama T-shirts this year, as well as a decrease in Obama posters and stickers. see obama page 4

Scholars discover similarities with victims By Alexandra Hitzler Staff Writer

Kevin Hirst spent the past week getting to know 35 people he will never meet. “This week, I went through the archives of the students, and I found so many ordinary things that really made me think,” Hirst said. “Resumes, prom pictures, SAT scores — these were just regular kids like us.” Hirst, a senior at the Martin J. Whitman School of Management, is one of this year’s 35 Remembrance Scholars. In light of Remembrance Week, this year’s scholars have spent time researching the lives of the 35 Syracuse University students who were lost on Dec. 21, 1988, when terrorists blew up Pan Am Flight 103

over Lockerbie, Scotland. A candlelight vigil was held Tuesday night to honor the victims. The Remembrance Scholars, as well as this year’s Lockerbie Scholars, joined a small gathering of students and faculty members at the ceremony. The Lockerbie Scholars are two students from Lockerbie Academy in Scotland who are picked every year to receive scholarships. The vigil began on the Quad with an opening prayer and a song of reflection by the Rev. Linus DeSantis and continued by the Wall of Remembrance in front of the Hall of Languages. The Remembrance Scholars and the Lockerbie Scholars shared their thoughts about Remembrance Week and the individuals who lost their lives.

Each of the Remembrance Scholars represents a particular SU student from the Pan Am tragedy. Hirst is a representative for Steven Berrell, an SU student who had much in common with Hirst. “We had the same major, we shared the same interests. Academically, we had very similar aspirations,” Hirst said. “It makes me think of all the potential that was lost.” Hirst said the scholars feel a strong connection to the students who lost their lives 22 years ago on Pan Am Flight 103. Amanda Cohen, a Remembrance Scholar and a senior in the School of Management, said she has thought a lot about the Pan Am tragedy’s see vigil page 6

Block Party 2011 online survey sees fastest student participation in three-year history By Maddy Berner Contributing Writer

Katy Perry, Akon and Vampire Weekend — these are some of the names included on this year’s University Union’s Block Party 2011 survey. In one week, the survey received around 2,000 responses, said UU President Andrew Beyda. This is the largest response received in one week since the survey began online three years ago, he said. “To see that amount of responses

to this year’s survey, within just one week, is a great sign that SU students really do care about UU’s events,” Beyda said. Block Party is one of the largest student events at the university. Through OrgSync, a Web management application for colleges, SU students can fill out questions regarding which artists from various genres they’d like to see live at the end of the year concert. UU’s executive board predetermines acts included on the list. UU is SU’s

biggest student organization. UU has an annual budget of $500,000, Beyda said. But the UU survey also lets students suggest five headliner performances not on the list that they’d like to see at Block Party, regardless of how much it would cost to bring the performances to SU. Students can also suggest five smaller acts. Beyda said having the survey online has made the process easier, and UU can process the results more

quickly. This is a change from previous years when students were invited to fill out paper forms, in addition to online ones. “For UU’s first survey, we simply posed an open-ended question in which we asked students to list the artists they would like to see perform on campus,” Beyda said. “We found that, in many cases, students were requesting artists that were simply way above the budget.” Now the survey asks students to

choose from a pre-made list, as well as answer an open-ended question. Keeping the open-ended question allows UU to give Student Association, which provides funding for UU’s events, data on what artists students would ideally want, Beyda said. Julia Kipnis, a freshman in the College of Visual and Performing Arts, said she thought the survey could be easier if it was all on one page. “It’s a good idea, but the way it’s set see block party page 4

“The fever that gripped the campus during the election year has really kind of died down significantly,” said Fitzpatrick, who is also a senior political science and history major. “I think people are less excited, less bold.” But Fitzpatrick also said he believes the majority of SU students still favor Obama, especially because SU is mostly a liberal campus. Students on college campuses also tend to be idealistic, rather than realistic, he said. “It’s still an image thing. I think it’s the fact that he plays basketball, and he’s healthy, he’s young,” Fitzpatrick said. “They want to see a guy that’s telling them everything is going to be good.” Fitzpatrick said he thinks Obama will not be able to regain student approval until he is out of the office, when students will be able to support him because of his personality, rather than as a president. “A lot of people think Obama is going to come in, rip off his shirt, and they’ll see a Superman sign, and he’ll take care of all the world’s problems,” Fitzpatrick said. “But there isn’t a whole lot that he has done that says, ‘Wow, he has really brought the country forward.’” Michael Morisseau, a junior accounting major, said he thinks one of the things students disapprove of is the way Obama is dealing with the economic crisis. People expect results quickly, he said, but it will take time to resolve the crisis. “In terms of the economy, the way that he’s gone about it, it was slow to progress. But at the same time, it shows the result,” Morisseau said. “They don’t understand that it takes time to progress.” Morisseau said he approves of the job Obama has done so far as president, but said there are ways in which he thinks Obama could improve. For instance, Morisseau said when Obama deals with issues, such as the stimulus package, he could be more open to listening to the opposing ideas and suggestions. “I think he should be more open to opinions, instead of blocking out other parties, and see what they have to say,” he said. With the upcoming midterm elections, Obama’s student approval rating may prove to be a factor. Wilson said the support for Obama may reflect overall support for Democratic candidates. The September survey may prompt students to question themselves before the midterm election, Wilson said, and ask, “Are we still supportive of Obama after what he’s done over the past two years?”

up is stupid,” she said. “It’s really redundant and asks the same questions over and over again.” Kipnis already filled out the survey and said she thinks B.o.B, who sang “Nothin’ on You,” featuring Bruno Mars, is the best option listed. “He’s fun, and he’s on the radio,” she said. Amiya Quidley, a sophomore in the L.C. Smith College of Engineering and Computer Science, said she was unaware of the survey until her friends started talking about it. “They should have done a better job of getting it out there,” she said. Quidley, who attended Block Party last year when Drake and N.E.R.D. performed, said she had fun and plans to go again this year. “I heard Nicki Minaj is on the list,” Quidley said. “I really like her music.”

Investigation of student blog challenges First Amendment rights Last Friday, Syracuse University’s College of Law informed a secondyear law student that he was being investigated as the creator of a satirical — and controversial — blog poking fun at SU’s College of Law community. An official complaint about the blog prompted the investigation. SUCOLitis, a WordPress blog written in a style similar to, pokes fun at SU’s College of Law community. On the website, it says it was created in early October by a group of second- and third-year law students. The SU College of Law investigation into the blog appears to be infringing on the students’ freedom of speech. Actual names of College of Law students and faculty have been used in some cases, but the stories and information posted are not factual,


by the daily orange editorial board which is clearly stated in a disclaimer on the website. The disclaimer says the blog is a “satirical publication” and no real news is published on the site. It also reads, “The views and opinions purportedly expressed should not be attributed to any persons, living or dead, including those with whom they share names and other descriptive details.” The College of Law’s investigation into this law student — who they are unsure is responsible for the blog — appears to disregard the student’s First Amendment rights. In addition, it is singling out the student for the actions of a group. The College of Law should

reconsider its actions and create a proactive solution, such as holding a dialogue on the issue, rather than stifle and punish students engaging in freedom of expression. And while the students running the blog are well within their rights, they could do more to make the blog blatantly satirical and tasteful. One way to do this is by satirizing only public figures within the SU College of Law community, rather than using the names of random students. That way, it is obvious when quotes and stories are untrue. In lieu of the recent tragedy at Rutgers University, The Daily Orange understands the concern about possible bias-related incidents stemming from the site’s comments. But probing an investigation and calling for the blog to be removed is not the way to handle the incident.


Leggings still not acceptable without covering up

ashion has always been about looking ahead, but this has not been the case for the last few years. Hoping to mend our past mistakes, fashion is now skimming through its history books and taking note of what trends could be reinvented to fit into our 21st century style. Fashion faux pas, such as strong padded shoulders, high waist trousers and even clogs, has made a strong, modernized comeback and can be seen from the runways to the streets. But none has made more of an impact within the fashion renaissance as leggings. The beloved workout gear from the 1980s has made its way back into our hearts and onto our legs. Leggings now come in different colors, fabrics and styles, all tailored to a woman’s need for comfort and fashion. However, just like any kind of blast from the past, there’s always a reason why

certain things should stay in the then and away from the now. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I hate leggings. It’s more the concept it’s become. Somewhere between the gym and Lindsay Lohan’s leggings line came the idea that they can be worn as an alternative to pants. It amazes me how so many people are oblivious to proper legging etiquette. Granted, there is no official rulebook that comes with your pantsless purchase, but covering up your goodies is a given, isn’t it? But here I am, giving my greatest rant yet in hopes of ending leggings’ plague of indecent exposure. The biggest mistake girls make is opting to wear cotton or polyester spandex. Leggings give off a misleading security of complete coverage, all the while providing slimming effects. But here’s the catch: It’s all about the fabric.

i’m judging you No matter how thin your thighs are, cotton and polyester still stretch to the point where it is so sheer that nothing is left to the imagination. It is panty liners, polka dot underwear and jiggle bums galore. Another misfortune is the unpleasant sighting of the camel toe. It’s not comfortable for anyone to have or see, and what’s worse is it’s unavoidable when you wear leggings as pants. All you can do is walk proudly with your camel toe and hope no one sees it. But I see it — everyone does.

And what’s with shredded leggings? If your leggings are that tattered, there’s no point in wearing them. Spending money on damaged merchandise isn’t wise to begin with, not to mention how distasteful they look on you. Save yourself from the campus walk of shame and follow these sensible but fashionable alternatives. For one, cover what your momma gave you. Dresses, tunics, skirts and even shorts are viable options to create a less revealing and more stylish outfit. Baggy T-shirts and boyfriend button-down shirts are also acceptable, as long as they hit mid-thigh. Long and loose silhouettes are the best balance to leggings. Another option is to ditch leggings altogether. Perhaps opting for a pair of opaque tights is a better fit. Tights complement dresses and skirts in a more sophisticated way and give

legs more length. Leggings, however, usually cut legs at the ankle or calf, giving a shorter appearance for the average girl. In essence, leggings being worn as pants is a serious epidemic. Even is calling it one of the top five fashion crimes committed since 2009. I understand the reasoning behind leggings, but I can only hope you also understand the humiliation you are facing as you step out with your pair of thin, tight leggings. Although leggings may make the most comfortable accessory for Syracuse’s cold weather, a camel toe sighting is the rain on everyone else’s parade. Vicki Ho is a senior public relations major.

of Law. SUCOLitis, a WordPress blog, began publishing online at the beginning of October. A group of second- and third-year law students write on the website with the goal of entertaining those in SU’s College of Law, according to the blog. But some officials and students at the law school are calling for the site to be removed and for legal action to be taken against the author. A disclaimer on the blog states it is a satirical publication, not a news blog, and no actual news stories appear on the site. The site will not show up in search engines, so students do not need to worry about potential employers finding their names associated with the site, according to the disclaimer. But the site has gained a large amount of interest from those aware of its existence. The law school has about 1,000 staff and students, and the site has had over 9,000 visits, according to the website’s counter. “Everyone at the College of Law has read the site, people outside the College of Law have read the site,” Audaer said. Now the College of Law alleges Audaer is the author of the blog — something he will neither confirm nor deny — and what is written on it is harassment. Audaer said the College of Law said SU’s Office of Judicial Affairs would also likely start an investigation. Audaer said he is the only student being investigated but would not be surprised if he was asked to name conspirators. He said he has been told computer evidence will be used, but this could be faulty if one of the other law students he lives with used his computer to access the site. Since SU is a private institution, the school has its own policies regarding free speech and does not have to legally uphold the First Amendment, meaning SU needs less evidence to make a case against Audaer. Although he does not think the case could survive in civil court, Audaer


his life and legacy. Glavin, who died May 7 of lung cancer, was a magazine journalism professor at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. During his lifetime, he was recognized as an outstanding teacher by the university and was named a Syracuse University Meredith Professor for Teaching Excellence, according to Newhouse’s website. The evening sought to capture Glavin’s essence in each of his many realms by bringing in friends from his college years, associates from his various professional positions and former students. The speakers shared personal stories about their time with Glavin. “I think it’s great that they brought people in from all facets of Bill’s life. It gave us a well-rounded account of who he really was,” said Samantha Schoenfeld, a junior magazine major. The event opened with a slide show of photographs created by Lawrence Mason, a photography professor. The final slide of the presentation described Glavin as “a camera-shy

said he is disturbed by the situation. Audaer is only allowed to have a lawyer with him during the College of Law’s hearing and, should the issue escalate, he could potentially be expelled and deported back to England, because he is in the United States on a student visa that requires him to be a full-time student. Audaer believes he is under investigation because, as the leader of the College of Law’s Parliamentary Debate Society, he set up a student debate for Wednesday on issues like College ACB, the Rutgers University student’s suicide and SUCOLitis. The debate will still feature students from the College of Law but will be held by the Tully Center for Free Speech and SU’s

quotes and content are used throughout the blog entries and generally are attributed to students or faculty of the law school. Some posts include made-up names. This is not an issue of free speech, Germain said, because the site is libelous and there are limitations to individual rights. “‘My right to swing my arm ends where your nose begins,’ is the old saying,” he said. But without proof, there is no basis for the investigation, said Adam Kissel, vice president for programs at the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education. He said offending someone is not enough to prove the website had caused harm.

“Is it normal for blogs to be put up that ridicule certain students’ character?” Gregory Germain


American Constitution Society. Chancellor Nancy Cantor is not involved with the SUCOLitis matter, as it is a matter within the law school, said Kevin Quinn, senior vice president of public affairs. Quinn said he has heard several law school students have filed complaints about the site with the law school and with the Office of Judicial Affairs. Germain, the professor involved in investigations, said he was unable to comment on the specifics of the investigation, but said a formal student complaint caused the law school to begin investigating the issue. As the faculty prosecutor, the member appointed to handle violations of the code of ethics, Germain has the job to resolve whether or not Audaer broke the Student Code of Conduct. He said the situation is not normal and described the website as “designed to be offensive.” “Is it normal for blogs to be put up that ridicule certain students’ character?” Germain said. The blog features topics like “Class of 2013 Named Most Attractive in History” and “Senate President Elected SU’s Sexiest Semite.” Fake

“Show me the bloody nose,” Kissel said in response to Germain’s proverb. The abuse of sexual harassment claims is a widespread problem, Kissel said. He said many schools have sexual harassment policies that are unconstitutional or violate the institution’s own policies on free expression. He said just because someone is offended by a sexual joke, it does not necessarily qualify as sexual harassment. “Even if a drawing on a white board is offensive or in bad taste, it’s very far from harassment,” Kissel said. Kissel considered driving between four to five hours from Philadelphia on Wednesday to attend the debate and support free speech. Germain was unaware of the debate on Wednesday about free speech, he said. It is a shame for an academic event to focus on this website, Germain said. But it is also an opportunity to talk about the issues through something the law school supports, he said. The law school should lighten up, said David Rubin, professor and dean emeritus of the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. If

students are not being harmed, the law school does not have the right to become involved. “You cannot have libel without a false statement of fact,” Rubin said. Rubin has viewed the website and said he did not see the site as anything other than satire, something people experience every day with comedians like Jay Leno or David Letterman. He referenced the Supreme Court case of Hustler Magazine v. Falwell, which deemed a parody of televangelist Jerry Falwell to be within the law because readers would not have interpreted the parody as fact. If the College of Law wishes to make a stand about the website, Rubin suggested it use speech and create its own blog aimed at whoever is authoring the site. Peter Bell, professor at the College of Law, was included in the story about the Class of 2013 with a phony comment on the attractiveness of first-year students. Bell, who teaches a class of 85 first-year students, said he thought the post could potentially make students feel uncomfortable around him. Bell said he has never seen the blog, but said Gonzalez spoke about the blog last week with him. He said Gonzalez said the issue had arisen after a post identified a first-year female as promiscuous. First-year students are already under enough pressure, Bell said, and there is no need to add to that with the blog. “Whoever’s doing it should stop doing it and definitely not say the nasty things that they are saying — even if they aren’t true,” Bell said. Should the matter not be resolved, Audaer said he has thought about suing the school. He also said he believes furthering the investigation would be an issue that would internally harm the school, with professors voicing opinions against the university’s actions. Ideally, the investigation will be dropped, he said. “I don’t really want to sue Syracuse University,” Audaer said. “I like Syracuse University.”


sportsman, mentor, award-winning teacher and treasured friend.” The event, held in the Joyce Hergenhan Auditorium, was preceded by an event in New York City on Oct. 5 that also memorialized Glavin. Prior to his death, Glavin told David Rubin, former dean of Newhouse, that he wanted these events to be happy, despite them reflecting his death, Rubin said. Many of the speakers had the audience laughing as they wiped away their tears. Hart Seely, a friend of Glavin who worked with him during his time at The Post-Standard, had the audience laughing as he recounted stories of their Yankees/Red Sox rivalry. If the Yankees lost, Glavin would immediately call Seely to gloat. “The deal is this: The Yankees had a real bad night last night. They lost 8-0. I stayed up waiting for about an hour for a call that never came,” Seely said, sobering the audience. The evening closed with a panel of Glavin’s former students, including Joseph D’Agnese, a 1986 alumnus; Allison Glock, a 1991 alumna; and Pete Thamel, a 1999 alumnus. The trio discussed Glavin’s impact on their lives and their careers and agreed their professional careers would not be what they are today if it hadn’t

been for Glavin. “He opened up my mind to a different kind of writing,” Thamel said. Glavin projected copies of his students’ work during class to critique, Thamel said. He would heavily mark the piece with his green pen, ripping apart the story and pointing out mistakes. Despite the potentially disheartening comments, Thamel said Glavin had a way of keeping students encouraged. Allison Kenien, a student of Glavin who graduated in 2007, said Glavin’s encouragement has led to many students’ success outside of school. “He gave the world so many editors. There are so many of his students working out in the industry right now that it’s kind of like little pieces of him that are out there,” Kenien said. The panelists remembered Glavin’s traditional approach to journalism, something they will keep with them as the industry evolves. “It’s good to hear all the stories and have that voice in my head again to sort of reinvigorate me to really still care about the words, because they do matter. They really do matter,” Glock said. “Good writing takes refining, and he taught that through his green pen.”

choosing one thing that they do not even realize there is another option. Although she has not read Cohen’s column before, she said she will now. “I loved when he said ‘There’s no certification to become an ethicist,’” she said. “He was very honest in the fact that he was chosen

for his entertainment value, not necessarily because of his experience with the subject.” Teng summed up Cohen’s message as to analyze oneself as “outside inside oversight.” She said: “You have to have the eagle eye on yourself at all times.”

impact on the SU community this week. Imagining herself in the position of the victims’ families gave her a new perspective, she said. “One really hateful act changed so many lives,” Cohen said. “This week, we should take time to remember how our actions really affect others.” The Remembrance Scholars shared anecdotes and the life stories of the victims with those who participated in the vigil. Many of the scholars said the victims’ stories serve as inspiration to continue the goals the victims were not able to complete. “These kids remind me every day to follow my dreams, because not everyone has the ability or means to do that,” said Kimberly Ndombe, one of this year’s Remembrance Scholars and a senior in the College of Arts and Sciences. “This event is really about perspective because life can be snatched away so quickly.” Jon Barnhart, Student Association president, said the 35 Remembrance Scholars, and the students and faculty who attended Tuesday’s vigil, chose to honor the lives of the victims because they regard the victims as members of the SU family. “None of us were here when this event happened,” Barnhart said. “But still, we are wholeheartedly dedicated to the victims’ memory because we are all a part of a family. Regardless of where you are from, we are a family.”

Trial oflabor

Former St. John’s administrator allegedly forces students to chauffeur son, complete housework By Meghin Delaney



ecilia Chang, a former administrator at St. John’s University, was charged with forcing students to act as personal servants last month following other charges for embezzling almost $1 million from the university early in September. Chang served as the dean of the Institute of Asian Studies at the university and had worked at St. John’s for more than 30 years. As the dean, Chang had the power to grant up to 15 scholarships a year, mostly to international students who were interested in Asian studies, according to a statement released Sept. 30 by the university. Chang was suspended from the university in January during an internal investigation of possible fraud and embezzlement totaling up to $1 million from the university, according to a Sept. 15 article in The New York Times. In June, she was fired by the university. Official charges were brought in September for both the embezzlement and the forced labor, according to a Sept. 30 article in The New York Times. “What did she do wrong? She did this for decades, she’s been giving out scholarships,” said Ron Rubinstein, one of Chang’s lawyers, in an ABC News story published Oct. 2. The students’ scholarships were under the condition that they must perform 20 hours of work per week in exchange for their

schola rships and that Chang would allegedly terminate their scholarships if they failed to perform their duties, according to an affidavit filed by the U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of New York. The affidavit alleged students were forced by Chang to do activities not related to the university, including driving her son to the airport at 3 a.m., delivering her cash at a casino and shoveling snow from Chang’s driveway.

at first blush like Work-Study, but wait ‘til the trial. I’m not going to give you the defense now.” Multiple calls to Rubinstein by The Daily Orange were not returned. Jordan Dolan, a sophomore English major at St. John’s, said he disagrees with Rubinstein’s assessment of what constitutes a Work-Study job. He is not one of the students involved in the lawsuit, but said his WorkStudy job is different from that description. “My Work-Study is tutoring at the writing center. Other people’s Work-Studies are watching the desks in the dorms or assisting the residence directors with clerical duties,”

“My Work-Study is tutoring at the writing center. Other people’s Work-Studies are watching the desks in the dorms or assisting the residence directors with clerical duties. Keeping house is definitely not part of the job description.”

Jordan Dolan


Rubinstein said in the Sept. 30 New York Times article that the activities students were doing were no different than normal Federal Work-Study jobs. “The fact that this is even a crime is shocking,” he said outside court to The New York Times. “Cooking a meal doesn’t sound

Dolan said. “Keeping house is definitely not part of the job description.” The affidavit also alleged Chang forced the students to do these tasks for her through threats of serious harm and told them they would lose their scholarships if they did not comply. Students were also allegedly forced

to falsify documents, said Charles Kleinberg, an assistant U.S. district attorney, in The New York Times article. Multiple calls to Kleinberg by The Daily Orange were not returned. The university called Chang’s behavior shocking and in complete violation of all the university stands for in its Sept. 30 statement. “They trusted a St. John’s employee thinking she wouldn’t do them wrong, and now that this has all unfolded, she’s endangered the trust the public has had on St. John’s officials,” said Abigail Hernandez, a freshman journalism major at St. John’s. Hernandez, who was not one of the students involved in the lawsuit, said she believes the students followed Chang’s directions because they are international students who were uninformed about how Work-Study traditionally works. All the students will continue to receive full scholarships to St. John’s, and a complete review is going on at the university to keep this from happening again, the university’s statement said. “I think the university should keep closer tabs on its employees,” Dolan said. “In times like these, money is a definite issue for every school, and to see this happen at a Catholic institution is a shock.”

“We haven’t brought anyone like Frank Warren to campus in a really long time,� Shaw said. “He’s an interesting guy — he created an entire company based on people sharing secrets. The whole PostSecret story is really cool.� The show was nearly sold out as of Tuesday night, Shaw said. She said she received e-mails from eager students, thanking her for bringing Warren and his presentation to campus. “The feedback has been really great,� she said. “We’ve been working with other organizations to publicize it, and we are co-sponsoring the event with the National Pan-hellenic Council, which should give us a good turnout from members of the greek community. Every-


one seems really excited.� Giving people an outlet for their fear, shame, joy and sadness is what PostSecret is all about. “I think PostSecret is such a cool project that’s helped so many people,� said Debbie Lechtman, a sophomore magazine journalism major. Lechtman said she has read the PostSecret blog every Sunday for the past three years. “I’m really interested to hear what (Warren) has to say,� she said. However devastating, funny, touching or ironic the secrets and stories may be, students can’t wait to hear about them. “I’m really excited to hear Frank Warren’s thoughts on keeping and telling secrets,� said Maddie Dockery, a sophomore broadcast journalism major. “It’s interesting what people are willing to reveal to complete strangers.�


“I love that the audience hugged the stage,� Hooper said, “They had really good energy for it being 8 p.m. on a Tuesday night with class the next day. I think we really warmed them up for Two Door Cinema Club.� Following GROUPLOVE was electro-rock group Penguin Prison. Lead singer Chris Glover said he would “sing like an angel� for the audience. He followed through on his promise, hitting sleek falsettos over jaunty electronic guitar riffs and upbeat keyboard melodies. The audience had an impromptu dance party as the stage was taken over by flashing strobe lights and an invitation to “get crazy� from Glover during a lively set. “I think that the opener brought some great energy to the crowd, and I got a really cool vibe from Penguin Prison,� said Mikala Stubley, an undeclared freshman in the College of Arts and Sciences. “But I really came here for Two Door Cinema Club.� As Penguin Prison disassembled its equipment and slowly departed from the stage, a buzz of nervous energy in anticipation of Two Door Cinema Club’s performance settled in the crowd. As the band’s music pulsed through speakers, the audience milled around the stage, anxiously awaiting the band members to perform their sound checks. The silence was bound to break. As soon as the quartet of Alex Trimble, Sam Halliday, Kevin Baird and Benjamin Thompson took the stage to humming guitars, the audience broke into a loud roar of applause. Although the band is just three years old, its presence on stage felt as though the members had many more years of experience under their belts. As they naturally choreographed through their

songs with jumps and dance moves, they also worked the crowd. While the band played “Undercover Martyn,� several members of the audience swayed to the beat, waving their cell phones in the air and trying to take pictures of the band. Between songs, Two Door Cinema Club made small talk with the crowd. Bassist Baird was greeted with cheers as he held up a bottle of water and said, “Cheers, and thanks for having us. I wish I was holding up some alcohol instead of water right now, but that would be against the rules.� The crowd’s energy reached a fever pitch as the band played fan-favorite singles “Something Good Can Work� and “I Can Talk.� The group even debuted a brand new unrecorded song for the audience, which had a favorable reception to it. “I think it’s cool they played a new song,� Mazzone said. “It was neat that they played it for us first.� The band played a majority of debut studio album “Tourist History� throughout its set, receiving a great deal of praise from members of the audience. “These guys are better live than they are on album,� Stubley said. “They had such fantastic stage presence. It was unbelievable.�

PostSecret founder to speak By Elora Tocci Asst. Copy Editor

Secrets aren’t any fun — unless they’re shared with everyone. The ultimate secret sharer, PostSecret founder Frank Warren, will bring his “PostSecret Live” multimedia presentation to Goldstein Auditorium in Schine Student Center What: “PostSecret Wednesday at 8 p.m. Live” Multimedia Presentation Started Where: Goldstein in November Auditorium 2004, the PostWhen: Today, 8 p.m. Secret project How much: $3 for allows people students, $5 for to write their faculty/staff d e e p e s t secrets on postcards and mail them in to Warren, who has compiled select postcards into five books and runs a blog, updating it every Sunday with new secrets. Warren is spending this fall bringing his “PostSecret Live” presentation to college campuses across the country. During the presentation, he shows postcards banned by Warren’s publisher, tells stories behind the secrets and allows students to come up to the microphone and share their own stories. He will also autograph copies of his books after the presentation tonight. Warren will tell the stories behind strangers’ secrets, but Syracuse University students will have the opportunity to share their own secrets as well. University Union has had a table in Schine the past week, where students write their secrets and confessions on sheets of paper, said Amanda Shaw, the co-director of UU Performing Arts who organized the event. UU collected the secrets in a box and will present them to Warren tonight. “It’s not a formal postcard, but it still gives students that outlet,” Shaw said. “We chose to bring Frank Warren here because we truly felt he’s someone a ton of people can relate to,” Shaw said. “His main goal is to show that everyone has their own secrets, but even though everyone is so different, we’re all kind of the same.” The secrets Warren publishes range in seriousness, from confessions about wanting to commit suicide and hiding one’s sexual orientation to singing Disney show tunes while driving. One postcard on the website reads, “My creative gifts are worth the mental illness I’ve suffered for them.” Another announces, “Living out of the car has allowed me to see the entire country. Thanks economy!” see postsecret page 8


Keeping the


Two Door Cinema Club chats candidly at Bandersnatch concert


By Erik Van Rheenen Contributing Writer

espite hailing from Northern Ireland, Two Door Cinema Club proved that danceable electro-pop music transcends borders during the second concert of the Bandersnatch Music Series Tuesday night in Schine Underground. “I love Two Door Cinema Club,” said Chloe Mazzone, a sophomore in the College of Arts and Sciences. “I discovered them over the summer, and I think it’s cool they’re from Europe.” The concert did not sell out, said Trevor Elwell, President of the Bandersnatch Music Series. But the students who attended the concert were treated to an intimate interaction with the three acts. Opening the concert was Los Angeles band GROUPLOVE, and although colead singer Heather Hooper entered the stage wearing a masquerade mask, the band had no reason to hide from the audience with its sunny brand of beach pop. “The mask represents believing in fantasy,” said Sean Gadd, the group’s guitarist. “Like all of us just doing what comes naturally and playing music together. It’s also been a dream come true being on tour with such a great band.” When not playing songs from its self-titled EP, GROUPLOVE spent part of its set carrying conversations with fans and even had a compliment or two for Syracuse’s autumn climate. “It was beautiful driving up Route 17, with the leaves changing colors and falling,” Gadd said. “Now if only it wasn’t as cold.” But the musical acts were only half of the equation. The tight-knit audience contributed to the friendly atmosphere, just as much as the bands did.

Fine-tuned to each workout, iFitness easily allows users to track exercise regimens, diet choices


By Nephtaly Rivera Contributing Writer



hether lifting weights at Archbold Gymnasium or running the Carrier Dome steps is the preferred way to work those muscles, staying in shape just got easier with iFitness. A new application for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, people can keep track of calories, try new exercises and even make a custom workout plan, all from the palm of their hand. The app is thorough, opening to a comprehensive list of workouts. The workouts are organized according to the part of the body the exercise targets: abs, legs, shoulders or back. Whatever needs toning, iFitness gives step-by-step directions on how to perform the activity safely and effectively. For visual learners, a Wi-Fi connection allows the user access to a video of the exercise. To keep users on track with their workouts, iFitness also tracks a day-to-day log, helping them plan out the rest of their active week. When it’s finally go-time, the user chooses the workout and enters the number of sets, rep-

etitions and weight of the dumbbells, if dumbbells are used. Should the user repeat the same workout but change the amount of reps or weight involved, a chart will show the averages of the changes, allowing a visual representation of any progress made. If the particular exercise is not included in the preset list, the app allows the addition of custom exercises, calories burned and any other statistics needed to monitor the workout’s progress. If the exerciser wants to follow a consistent routine, iFitness has an impressive list of exercise programs for all ages, skill levels and types. This is great for people who need structure for motivation. For example, the beginner program contains a list of workouts for someone new to the weight room. The exercises can be very specific, including “Expert Golf Regimen,” “Body Toning For Women” and “Glutes Definition Plan.” There’s even a routine for the on-the-go college student unable to get to a gym. Within the list, there are additional instructions if necessary for the exercise, such as the recommended number of times per week the user should work out and how much time he or she should spend warming up. In addition to the detailed charts, the app can show any types of progress fitness-wise, whether it is exercise or diets. When losing weight, exercise is only half the battle. Luckily, the “Food Tracker” function allows users to record all of the food they’ve eaten during the day. The amount of calories, fat and sodium they consumed can also be viewed. Beyond that, users can also use the weight monitor to input their weight on a daily basis, which can project a chart with any weight changes. If there is a particular part of the body someone is looking to change or tone,

the user can type in his or her measurements to the body measurements tracker. It will track abdominal, neck and arm sizes, as well chart them. The app has numerous features and is very easy to use, but on some occasions it seems to get overwhelmed and crashes, sending the user back to the main menu. This is a manageable problem, though. As long as information is saved previously, nothing will be lost. Just be careful: If the app crashes in the middle of entering data, then it’s back to square one. In the end, all of iFitness’ features make the $1.99 price tag well worth it. For an easy way to find a new workout, track calories and make sure all that hard work at the gym is paying off, give iFitness a try.

Mottershead rises to captain role in 1st season with Orange By Andrew Tredinnick Staff Writer

Alyscha Mottershead is not going to say she is the most qualified player for the captain’s job as a sophomore. But when Megan Bellingham was lost for the season with an injury, SU head coach Phil Wheddon was faced with filling that role for the second time this season. And he has found a viable candidate in Mottershead. A viable but unlikely candidate. Aside from being a sophomore, Mottershead just joined the Orange this year as a transfer from Iowa. She began donning the captain’s band for the Orange during an Oct. 8 matchup with West Virginia. She has established herself as a leader during her short time at SU, but she won’t be the first to boast about her new role on the team. “I feel like a lot of players could fulfill that role wearing the band or not,” Mottershead said. “I don’t think it’s just a one-person job. I think that the fact that I was recognized by the team in that role means a lot to me.” The Orange was left with a void when Bellingham’s chronic knee problems caught up with her for the second time in two years. Bellingham played her last game Oct. 3 against DePaul. But Wheddon had a very capable candidate at his fingertips. Mottershead, a former member of Canada’s U-17 national team, was captain for

her squad during the bronze medal game in the CONCACAF World Cup qualifier while she was still in high school. So when Bellingham went down, Mottershead was ready for the challenge. “I think just being asked to be captain and the fact that Megan couldn’t play that game is definitely an honor,” Mottershead said. “It means that they respect me, but I respect everyone on the team and anyone that could have been given that role.” Mottershead transferred from Iowa after last season, but she was a force during her freshman campaign with the Hawkeyes, recording 11 points on three goals and five assists. The sophomore’s modesty is a quality that has made her an excellent replacement. Her teammates said Mottershead will be the first to admit that the rest of the Orange is just as worthy as her. And Mottershead’s qualifications have made her an excellent choice for team captain. With just less than two years under her belt at the collegiate level, her ceiling is high. “It just says that she has a lot of time to grow as a captain,” junior midfielder Amanda Morris said. “It’s really good to see that she’s stepped up, and she can become the captain of the Syracuse squad.” Mottershead was familiar with teammates Kayla Afonso and Tina Romagnuolo before

Mottershead, a transfer, is in her first season with the Orange. transferring to SU. Mottershead had the chance to play with Afonso and Romagnuolo in a national training center in Toronto, Ontario. Bryan Rosenveld, the coach of the U-17 Canadian team, instilled many leadership qualities into the trio during their time with him. That was the first step in making her the kind of player who would be ready to be a captain as a first-year player at SU. “It was like a college atmosphere without the schooling,” Mottershead said. “It’s definitely really intense, and we had fitness routines and practices, but he puts you into the mindset of a national player and being able to work under that kind of pressure.” But this type of youth and leadership has had a positive effect on the Orange so far this season. With no seniors likely to be in SU’s starting lineup for the remainder of the season, the last two games provide Mottershead the opportunity to grow and gain experience with her teammates. It excites players about what the future may hold, including sophomore defender Skylar Sabbag. “It’s amazing because we’re so young, and sometimes I think about when we’re seniors,

imagine how solid we’re going to be,” Sabbag said. “We’re going to have so much depth and seniority, and it’s just going to be crazy how unstoppable we could be.”


“It’s going to be a rude awakening for some of the young kids who have never been down there,” Suter said. “But a lot of us love that atmosphere. … I love that, personally, and I know a lot of other guys feel the same way on this team.” For Marrone, this will be his first trip down to WVU in some time. He took an official visit down there when he was being recruited out of high school and has always remembered the type of college football environment it presented. “I haven’t been down there in awhile,” Marrone said. “It is an extremely difficult place to play. … They have great fans and support. It’s a tough environment to play in, and it’s challenging. That’s what is fun about college football.” One of the guys Suter may be referring to is sophomore receiver Alec Lemon. He’s heard about the kinds of things that go on down there. He’s been told how hostile that crowd can be and knows that come Saturday, he’ll have to block out the crowd and focus. For Lemon, one thing is clear: Be prepared for a unique experience. “I’ve heard stories from coaches and teammates,” Lemon said. “(We) just have to go down there and expect the worst.”

as a learning experience — especially for the young players. Smith said the older players are talking to the younger players. He said that as far as the past, Syracuse is not focused on it because this isn’t the same team. And for the first time in a while, the players really believe they have a chance to bounce back. And there’s also a message he said the older guys are sending. “Just to build that winning attitude,” Smith said. “To tell everybody that everything will be OK, that we can bounce back from this situation and hopefully move on and work from here on.”

SU’s expecting hostile environment West Virginia is notorious for its home crowd. The Mountaineers currently have the league’s highest average home game attendance in the Big East and hosted more than 60,000 earlier this year against Maryland. So when Smith, Suter and their teammates arrive at Mountaineer Field prior to kickoff Saturday, they have an idea of what to expect.

Wisconsin attempts to remain grounded after win over OSU By Zach Brown Staff Writer

Thousands of fans flooded the field at Camp Randall Stadium Saturday. Players cried. The crowd danced. The goal posts came down. But it wasn’t contained to just Madison, Wis. Coming off the biggest night in recent program history, some of Wisconsin’s football players could not contain their emotions. The significance of the Badgers’ 31-18 win over No. 1 Ohio State was not lost on Badgers junior defensive end J.J. Watt. Watt knew the magnitude of the upset. The Camp Randall setting wouldn’t be the only place people would party in Wisconsin. Watt knew every town in the state was rejoicing. The win meant just that much to the state. “You go out there, anywhere in Wisconsin, and people are going to be celebrating,” Watt said after the game. “They’re going to be happy because we just took down the No. 1 team, and that’s not something that happens every day.” The win over Ohio State Saturday was Wisconsin’s first win over a No. 1 team since 1981. It was the first time the No. 10 Badgers (6-1, 2-1 Big Ten) had beaten a Top 10 team since head coach Bret Bielema took over the team in 2006, and it ended a three-game losing streak to the Buckeyes (6-1, 2-1). But what comes now may be the most difficult part of beating the nation’s No. 1 team — staying focused on next week’s opponent. Bielema hopes his players don’t get too caught up in the hype. He realizes just how tough of a test his Badgers will face when they travel to No. 13 Iowa this weekend. For the state to keep rejoicing, his team needs to remain grounded. “As much as we enjoyed Saturday, and I’m sure guys are still getting pats on the back as they go through their first days of class back. We have to shift our focus immediately to Iowa, a very talented football team who is playing very, very well,” Bielema said in his weekly press con-

ference Monday. “It’s a trophy game for us, one of two to exist on our schedule, and one that’s very important to our kids, so it’s a tremendous challenge.” That challenge may be even more difficult if recent college football history holds true. Since 1990, seven teams ranked outside the Top 10 have knocked off the No. 1 team in the country at home, only to lose their next game on the road the following week. No. 19 South Carolina was the latest to fall victim to that trend last weekend. After ending Alabama’s 19-game winning streak Oct. 9, the Gamecocks blew an 18-point lead at Kentucky and lost 31-28 in Lexington, Ky. Like Bielema, South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier said he would try to turn his players’ focus toward Kentucky earlier that week but wasn’t sure his players would be able to completely abandon the excitement of upsetting the country’s No. 1 team. And sure enough, his Gamecocks suffered their second loss of the year to the unranked Wildcats. Bielema said he would use that South Carolina loss as an example for his team but would also remind his players of their matchup with Football Championship Subdivision Austin Peay earlier this season. Coming off a 20-19 win over non-conference foe Arizona State, Wisconsin had a seemingly easy matchup with the Governors the next week. Bielema was happy with the way his team carried itself in the week prior to that game, leading up to a 70-3 romp over the Governors. He believes the Badgers are approaching this matchup with Iowa very similarly. “We talked all week (before the Austin Peay game) about not having a letdown against a team that you’re better than or that you should go out and focus,” Bielema said. “(The players) had the right response that week. They had the right response this week. I think they’ll have the same response this week.” But Iowa (5-1, 2-0) is no Austin Peay. The

courtesy of david stluka | wisconsin athletic communications The Wisconsin football team celebrates its victory over then-No. 1 Ohio State last week at home. The Badgers’ win over OSU was their first over a top-ranked team since 1981. Hawkeyes enter the contest at No. 13 in the country following wins over Michigan and Penn State. They have the sixth-best scoring defense in the country and have won six of their past eight games against the Badgers. And those numbers don’t even take into account the history between the two teams. The rivalry dates back to 1894, and the Hawkeyes hold a slight 42-41-2 advantage over Wisconsin. The rivalry and Iowa’s talent level may end up helping Wisconsin shift attention from that historic win a week ago to the matchup Saturday. But there is still the daunting historical evidence of the giant slayers falling just one week later on the road after knocking off the country’s No. 1 team. But even with all that, Bielema seemed confident his players were ready to look past the excitement from last Saturday and avoid the potential pitfall at Iowa. “There wasn’t anything about (Ohio State),” Bielema said after practice Monday. “There wasn’t anything about corrections or anything except moving forward. And actually our players came up and wanted to do that, so it was something that showed me that they’re thinking right and acting right.”

In a game filled with obscene offensive numbers, Newton’s performance stood out above everyone else’s. The junior quarterback led the Tigers (7-0, 4-0 Southeastern Conference) to a 65-43 win over No. 21 Arkansas (4-2, 1-2) and propelled himself to the front of the Heisman Trophy race. After falling behind the Razorbacks 43-37 early in the fourth quarter, Newton directed Auburn down the field and retook the lead for the Tigers with a 15-yard pass to sophomore Emory Blake. Auburn went on to score the next 21 points and pulled away from Arkansas for the big win. Newton has now scored 25 touchdowns (13 through the air and 12 on the ground) in his first year as the Tigers’ starting quarterback. While other Heisman contenders have struggled through the start of conference play, the junior has thrived in SEC play. He has led Auburn to wins over No. 19 South Carolina and No. 24 Mississippi State, in addition to the win over the Razorbacks. If Auburn can pull out a win Saturday, when No. 6 Louisiana State comes to town, a battle with No. 7 Alabama in the last week of the regular season could decide Newton’s Heisman fate.

Goalie matchup pivotal as Syracuse travels to face Villanova By Allison Guggenheimer Staff Writer

Syracuse goalie Jeremy Vuolo has kept the Syracuse men’s soccer team in numerous games. He is the anchor at the back of a Syracuse defense that has only given up more than two goals on three occasions. And it has come in a season in which his offensive teammates have not scored a goal in Big East play. But come Wednesday, Vuolo may meet his match. Syracuse (2-6-5, 0-2-3 Big East) travels down to Villanova (7-5-2, 3-1-1), and Vuolo will go up against Chris Bresnahan in a matchup of two of the Big East’s best goalies. As both keepers have proven to be integral parts of their respective teams, the difference in Wednesday’s game will likely come down to which goalie makes the first mistake or which team takes an unstoppable shot. And Vuolo is hoping his pregame ritual with SU goalie coach Mike Miller will give him the edge. “I get my confidence from good training sessions and preparing well,” Vuolo said. “So

the fact that I’ve been able to prepare myself well throughout the week before the games has really contributed to me playing well.” Leading up to every game, Miller simulates an opponent’s offensive formation and field conditions, so Vuolo knows exactly what is coming. This is why Vuolo believes he is tied for second in the Big East with five saves per game. This is what drives him. And with Vuolo keeping SU in each game, the Orange is still relevant in the postseason discussion. Bresnahan happens to be the other goalie tied for second in the Big East in saves per game. The two goalies have never played each other, but in most conference goalkeeping statistics, they both rank near the Top 10. Bresnahan leads the league in saves with 65. Vuolo, who has played two fewer games, has 55, putting him third in the Big East. In last year’s game against Villanova, SU midfielder Geoff Lytle had one of the few shots against Bresnahan. Lytle said early in the game, he took the ball down the line. His shot

deflected off a defender and was saved by the diving keeper. That game ultimately resulted in a 3-1 loss for Syracuse. This year, Lytle said the emphasis must remain on getting shots. “No matter how good the goalie is,” Lytle said, “if we don’t test him, it won’t matter.” Vuolo was tested in SU’s 3-0 loss at Marquette Saturday. The three goals were the most he has allowed since the Orange lost 5-1 in its first game against Siena on Sept. 1. The first two goals for the Golden Eagles were not glaring missteps on Vuolo’s part. The first was a bent shot from outside the box, and the second was a penalty kick. But the third was where he made a mistake. The ball was about eye level, and Vuolo almost got his hands on it but instead stepped in the wrong direction. He said the real problem was, for once, he was unprepared. A poor recovery day, and then a travel day, led up to the game against the Golden Eagles. Vuolo felt “lackadaisical” before and during the game. Yet moving on to Villanova should not be a

problem for the keeper, even after the tough loss, SU head coach Ian McIntyre said. “We talk about how half the game is before the next game,” McIntyre said. “Especially good goalkeepers, they have to have a little bit of amnesia and forget. Don’t worry about what has happened to them. Worry about what’s ahead.” Bresnahan also conceded three goals in his match Saturday to a Georgetown team that is now first in the Big East’s Blue Division. After Saturday’s games, each goalie has allowed 14 goals this season. Although Wednesday’s game will not directly establish which goalie is superior, it is a chance for one to separate from the other. Vuolo is looking forward to the challenge. Coming off a disappointing performance against Marquette, he will seek to re-establish himself as the dominant and prepared goalie he is. “I enjoy personally playing against a good goalkeeper,” Vuolo said. “I see it as a challenge. I’d like to have a better game than him.”

Sayer weathers injuries to earn goalie spot By Jason Krakower Staff Writer

Rachel Sayer isn’t normal. And Syracuse field hockey head coach Ange Bradley means that in the most complimentary way possible. After Sayer injured her knee two months ago for the second time since joining SU in December, it would have been ordinary to limit herself until the end of the season, when doctors told her she might be healthy again. It would have been expected of Sayer to be content cheering her team on from the sideline. She wasn’t. The freshman goalkeeper trained as hard as she could, putting in as much grueling work as possible with the intention of being ready and healthy before the end of the season. And in the week before SU’s game at Albany, Sayer heard what she had been waiting to hear since she graduated a semester early from high school. She had earned the starting goalkeeper spot for the Orange. “I was excited, and I couldn’t wait to get back onto the field,” Sayer said. “I hadn’t played in almost a year, and coming back from injuries are never easy, but doing rehab and training got me back where I needed to be. This is what I live for. This is my sport. So being out on the field was just great.” Sayer’s start came after Bradley deactivated four starters for undisclosed reasons, including sophomore goalkeeper Leann Stiver. But Bradley said Sayer rightfully won the job. Despite the controversy surrounding the Orange, Sayer’s performance has proved she is capable of playing for a Top 10 program. The freshman goalkeeper has put up “spectacular” results, her teammates said, picking up the first three wins of her young career and

action last season, Jones shot 44.6 percent from beyond the arc in 56 attempts. He and James Southerland, who shot just 7-of-24 from 3 last season, are two who Rautins sees as dark horse threats to take over that void. But first, they both have to get on the court. Jones struggled to get much playing time last year, only averaging 10.5 minutes per game. In Big East contests, that number was even lower. Southerland only managed 7.5 minutes per game last season. But now, with Johnson and Rautins gone, the opportunity is there. And to Boeheim, it’s up to them whether or not they take it. “They both have great opportunities, and they have to take advantage of them,” Boeheim said. “They’re going to get a great opportunity. We lost two perimeter guys who played 35 minutes a game last year, so there is a large amount of playing time there. I certainly think they are two guys who have improved a lot and should be ready to play.” Jones knows the opportunity is there. He said sometimes during the summer, he would show up at the Carmelo K. Anthony Basketball Center, dead tired at 3 a.m., and shoot the ball hundreds of times, many of which would come from beyond the arc. And those early shootarounds have gotten him to a point at which he is comfortable trying to fill the void of the two most consistent 3-point shooters last year for the Orange. “I would work on it every day,” Jones said of

holding two ranked opponents to a combined two goals. Her contribution has been essential in a key stretch of the season. “Rachel is an outstanding competitor,” Bradley said. “I knew she always had that mental toughness in her, but unfortunately she was plagued by injuries last spring. Everything she’s worked for and had taken away from her was just there, and she celebrated that moment.” Though that moment was earned through her intense training, the physical rehab she had to go through nearly eliminated the true reason she arrived early to Syracuse. Sayer wanted to get a jump on the tough transition to the college game, but her injuries diverted much of her focus to simply getting healthy enough to play. Sayer said one of the biggest casualties of her redirected concentration was the ability to constantly communicate with her defense. But like every other obstacle she has encountered as a member of the Orange, she has been working hard to overcome it. “There are different methods of communication, but all of the goalies that we have on our team (have been able to) communicate well with the defense,” sophomore back Iona Holloway said. “I think she did so well for her first starts of the season.” Though the isolation of her extensive workouts rarely gave her the opportunity to build that chemistry with her defense, she credits the encouragement and support of her teammates with the fact that she was healthy two weeks earlier than expected. Normally, a player with Sayer’s injuries wouldn’t have been cleared to play until there was a week to go in the season. Ordinarily, a player with no previous college experience

his offseason shooting work. “I’m comfortable with the way I’ve been shooting lately. But even though it feels good, I want to be better. I want to be more consistent. I want to be Andy Rautins consistent.” SU also has two presumable starting guards who each shot at least 39 percent on 3-point attempts last season — Brandon Triche and Scoop Jardine. But the question is whether they can both extend that to a full season’s work. Whether they can become the options in that facet of the game, rather than just options. “It changes a little bit,” Triche said. “We have to adapt to the situation and get better. Transform into a little bit of Andy, try to get some shots up. I’m not as great a shooter as Andy, but I’m going to try to make my own way.” But until Triche — or Jardine or Jones or Southerland — has completely transformed into Rautins, Boeheim won’t be comfortable. Until then, those four are just part-time 3-point shooters. Kris Joseph, another player Boeheim singled out, is just a player who made some in practice but could never translate that into games. Until then, Boeheim will still only feel comfortable with himself. “One of the question marks is going to be how well we can shoot the ball from the perimeter with those guys,” Boeheim said. “James and Mookie are very good 3-point shooters. Dion is a good shooter. I think we have more guys who can shoot them. “We just have to find out if we have guys who can make them.”

couldn’t shut down two ranked opponents away from home. But even in the face of a dire late-season changeup for her team, Bradley was expecting Sayer to act normal in her debut all along. “She has perseverance, and she knows how special it is to be out on the field,” Bradley said. “I think that says so much for someone who takes advantage of an opportunity. That’s a winner, and I’m proud to be standing with her and next to her.”

Despite an “internal team matter” that has forced four starters out of the lineup at various points in the past three games, the Syracuse field hockey team has gone on a three-game winning streak. Two of those came in overtime, while the other was an 11-0 demolishing of Georgetown in which the Orange did not even allow a shot. Syracuse is now 10-4 overall and 4-0 in the Big East, a record that puts them solely at the top of the conference.

Schedule maker Boeheim quipped in his opening press conference at SU’s media day that he could not have come up with the Orange’s non-conference schedule. One by one, he listed off why each out-ofconference opponent would be tougher than the last. Georgia Tech will be good. Michigan is on the upswing. UTEP has four returning starters. North Carolina State will have almost everyone coming back. And Michigan State will be No. 1 or No. 2 in the nation. “It’s much more difficult than what we’d like to see,” Boeheim said. “Pretty much go down our schedule, and it’s very challenging. The non-conference schedule is good, and hopefully that will help us for the conference schedule.” Boeheim, of course, is the Orange’s schedule maker. And he thinks this year, both in and out of conference, will be SU’s toughest one in years. Syracuse’s head coach also thinks the Orange’s Big East slate is the toughest it has had to face in a “long time.” SU will play Georgetown and Villanova in homeand-home contests this season, two squads Boeheim said will be in the top four of the league. “It’s the best conference in the nation, and it is going to be tough again this year,” Triche said of the Big East. “We play against the best teams. … There are going to be battles every game, but this is what America wants to see — great basketball.”

Three’s A company With Johnson, Rautins gone, Orange searches for new 3-point threat

By Brett LoGiurato Asst. Sports Editor

sk Andy Rautins. He knows how important the 3-point shot is for any basketball team. How it can mount a comeback ever so quickly. How it can turn a four- or fivepoint advantage into a more sizeable lead. And specifically, how it can extend a game, like his barrage of 3s did, to force a fourth overtime in the epic six-overtime Big East tournament game against Connecticut. “You just get on a roll and keep it going when you’re making 3s,” Rautins said. “It’s definitely a huge asset. It’s a big weapon to have.”

Then ask Jim Boeheim about the current state of his team, 3-point shooting-wise. With Rautins and Wes Johnson gone, who can provide that spark for a comeback? That game-clinching shot? Or that game-extending shot? “I’m pretty comfortable with myself,” Boeheim quipped at the Syracuse men’s basketball team’s annual media day last Friday. “I think I can make some if I get open. But the rest is up in the air.” When SU hits the court Nov. 12 in its first game against Northern Iowa, its current ensemble of players chucking those 3-pointers will be one of Boeheim’s biggest

concerns. Rautins and Johnson combined to shoot 364 attempts from beyond the 3-point arc last season. They made 149 of them, good for about 41 percent. Those two are gone. And so is the certainty of a consistent 3-point threat going into the season. But Rautins, for one, isn’t worried like Boeheim. “I think that us leaving, it won’t affect them too much,” Rautins said. “I know they have a hardworking bunch. They’re going to do their best to fill that void.” One of the players who could step in to fill that void is Mookie Jones. A sniper in limited see 3-pointers page 14


Moving past loss to Pittsburgh, SU puts focus on WVU By Andrew L. John Sports Editor

Twenty-four hours were all Doug Marrone gave his team. Twenty-four hours to lick its wounds. Twenty-four hours to look at film. And 24 hours to forget Pittsburgh. Just 24 hours after facing Pittsburgh in the Carrier Dome Saturday, Marrone had already mentally removed his team from its most embarrassing loss of the season. The hours just after the 45-14 defeat were spent looking at game tape and learn-

ing from mistakes. Then the team put the loss in the rearview mirror and completely moved forward to this weekend’s matchup at West Virginia. “We had 24 hours to go over Pitt and get that out of our system,” senior safety Max Suter said. “And we’re focused on West Virginia now and are ready to move forward.” Just days after watching Pitt come into the Dome and crash Homecoming weekend, the Orange now faces the difficult task of facing the

league’s top team — on the road. It’s not an ideal situation for an SU team coming off its worst loss of the season. But Monday at his weekly press conference, Marrone put the Pitt loss in perspective. The head coach made some brief comments about Pitt and then dove right into what SU plans to do differently this weekend. “What we need to do is go back and concentrate on little things, make sure our steps are right, our eyes are right, we know exactly what

we are doing and we don’t make mistakes,” Marrone said. “We have to keep the players and come back, and everyone has to put their noses to the grindstone, and let’s go back to work. And we have a game this week against probably the most experienced team, as far as starts, that we will face all year.” All eyes will be on the Orange now to see how it responds. SU senior linebacker and captain Derrell Smith believes this opportunity can be used see wvu page 12
