Contested blog made private By Beckie Strum NEWS EDITOR
Supporters of the satirical SUCOLitis blog’s right to free speech say the university has successfully set a precedent for limiting students’ First Amendment rights by calling unwanted speech harassment. After a student filed a complaint accusing the blog of harassment, law school members expressed heavy criticism and launched a formal investigation into SUCOLitis, a WordPress blog poking fun at people and institutions within the Syracuse University College of Law. The blog went private Wednesday afternoon, after hitting more than 12,000 views.

Victims of Pan Am 103 memorialized at rose ceremony By Anne Frances Krengel CONTRIBUTING WRITER
As the bagpipe notes of “Amazing Grace” floated in the background, 35 seniors stepped up one by one to the Wall of Remembrance to lay a rose in honor of the victims of the Pam Am Flight 103 explosion 22 years ago. Friday’s Rose Laying Ceremony was the culmination of Remembrance Week 2010. The ceremony began with 35 chimes at 2:03 p.m., the time of the tragedy. The 35 Remembrance Scholars, seniors chosen for their academic achievements and contributions to SU, honored the memories of the people who died in the Dec. 22, 1988, terrorist attack. As Avery Head, director of the Syracuse Scottish Pipe Band, played “Amazing Grace,” the Remembrance
Scholars lined up beside the Wall of Remembrance in front of the Hall of Languages. After the scholars laid their roses down, they spoke about the life and legacy of one of the victims. Two students from Lockerbie Academy, awarded scholarships to attend Syracuse University for a year, represented the 11 Lockerbie residents on land who were killed by the explosion. Catherine Wilcox, a senior bioengineering major who has attended the ceremony every year she has been at SU, said it is the most emotional of the Remembrance Week activities. “As a student, remembering what happened, it’s something that just makes you wonder why things happened the way they did,” Wilcox said.

SU, county to explore smokefree university By Yani Brown
andrew renneisen | staff photographer KIMBERLY NDOMBE (FRONT) AND TERESA SOLDNER , seniors in the College of Arts and Sciences, proceed along with 33 other Remembrance Scholars at the start of the Rose Laying Ceremony.
A smoke-free campus could be in the works within the next three years, as Syracuse University has partnered with the Onondaga County Health Department through a state program called Colleges for Change. November marks the 35th annual Great American Smokeout, during which organizations encourage smokers to quit or make a plan to quit. As a part of New York state’s tobacco control program, Colleges for Change aims to reduce the promotion of tobacco and lower exposure to secondhand smoke on campus. The age group with the highest prevalence of smoking in the state is 18- to 24-year-olds, according to a Sept. 10 SU News Services release.

brandon weight | staff photographer don garber , the commissioner for Major League Soccer, tells Syracuse University students he sees potential for the popularity of soccer to grow in the United States during an address on Thursday.
Don Garber was never a soccer junkie. He didn’t play as a kid, and up until the late 1990s, he was less than educated on the sport. But after attending the 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup as a guest, he took a job as the Major League Soccer commissioner and became hooked on the game. And his goal is to reel in the rest of the country into soccer as well. “Soccer is an explosive sport here in this country in so many different ways,” Garber said. “From a participation level, from a fan level, from an American player development level. The sport is still in its infancy … with a massive amount of growth in front of us.” Garber gave an address, “The Creation of a Soccer Nation in America: Why the sport matters here in the U.S. and why it will matter more in the future,” in Kittredge Auditorium Thursday evening. The MLS commissioner since 1999, Garber is also a member of the USA Bid Committee, which is trying to bring the 2022 World Cup to the United States. The committee also features former President Bill Clinton, Brad Pitt and U.S. soccer stars Landon Donovan and Mia Hamm. They all share the same sentiment Garber relayed Thursday: Soccer is a sport on the rise in America. And bringing the World Cup to the United States in 2022 — for the first time since 1994 — would help soccer grow rapidly. Garber said it is important to continue supporting the grassroots development of soccer in the United States. “But if you can bring the biggest sports tournament in the world, with the best players in the world, to our shores, that will give us a jumpstart see garber page 4

Cantor to officially install Steinwert as sixth dean on Monday afternoon By Meghin Delaney Staff Writer
After beginning her tenure in March, Tiffany Steinwert will be officially installed as the sixth dean of Hendricks Chapel when she is presented her responsibilities Monday. The ceremony will take place at 3 p.m. in Hendricks Chapel. All members
Formal Installation of Tiffany Steinwert
What: Installation of the sixth dean of Hendricks Chapel Where: Hendricks Chapel When: Today, 3 p.m. How much: Free of Syracuse University and the greater Syracuse area are welcome to attend.
The service will last for an hour with many officials from SU, the Syracuse community and Onondaga Nation present. Chancellor Nancy Cantor will give Steinwert her official charge as dean of Hendricks Chapel, and Steinwert will give a response to accept her charge, Steinwert said. Steinwert was chosen last Decem-
ber out of a pool of 70 applicants to fill the position, replacing the interim dean Kelly Sprinkle, according to a Dec. 4 article in The Daily Orange. Steinwert officially began her work as dean of Hendricks Chapel in March, and this installation process is a formal recognition by the university. The installation process, which
occurs for many university officials, is ceremonial and can take place any time after the person has taken his or her position, Steinwert said. The installation celebrates the university’s commitment to being an inclusive community, Steinwert said. Glorianne Picini, a member of

that nothing else probably could,” he said. Garber spoke to an auditorium at near-capacity, full of sport management majors and soccer fans. His presentation was split into two parts: the evolution of the MLS into a major professional soccer league and the effort to bring the World Cup to the United States once again. The two topics go hand-in-hand. The biggest step that needs to be taken in building up soccer in this country is the transition from youth participation to adult fandom, Garber said. Too many former soccer players do not stick with the sport as fans after their youth, he said. The goal is to be more like the four major sports — baseball, football, basketball, hockey — in the United States, rather than a sport with a mediocre fan base, such as swimming or

Campus Crusade for Christ and Baptist Campus Ministries, said she hopes the charge Cantor gives Steinwert will create a more inviting and educational atmosphere for students at SU to learn about all faiths without the fear of being pressured. “I hope she can help the tolerance and help open learning so people can talk and decide what they believe and not what they think they should believe,” said Picini, a sophomore photojournalism and history major. Steinwert has previously worked as an interfaith consultant and a teaching fellow at both Boston University and Harvard University. Her previous work was mostly with graduate level students, and she said this opportunity allows her more access to the entire SU community. “Someone who has worked with college students before will be much more wildly suc-

“But you have to remember, even though it’s hard. I mean, it could have been any of us on the flight.” Stephen Boland was an advertising major at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications and chapter vice president for his Delta Tau Delta fraternity for the 1989-90 academic year. He was one of the 270 people killed in the bombing. Remembrance Scholar Andrew Woodbury is also a member of Delta Tau Delta and spoke
cycling, Garber said. Soccer needs to be both a participation-based and a spectator-based sport to succeed, he said. “That’s what FIFA is going to be looking for to bring the World Cup here, and that’s what our league is going to be looking for to continue to grow the overall interest in our sport,” he said. The MLS was founded in 1993, but in recent years, it has taken its biggest strides under Garber. After the 2006 season, he created a youth development system affi liated with the league in which teams control their own youth clubs. During that same off-season, his designated player rule went into effect, which helps MLS teams sign European stars. The most famous signing occurred in 2007, when the Los Angeles Galaxy signed English veteran David Beckham. Still, the league is not nearly on par with the top European soccer leagues. And to skeptics,
soccer will not break through. “It can’t really compare to football and basketball and baseball,” said Danielle Czysz, a junior sport management major. “Once it gets professional, people turn to their home football teams or home baseball teams. Things they grew up with.” The vote determining the host of the 2022 World Cup will take place Dec. 2. The United States is competing with Australia, Japan, South Korea and Qatar for the chance to host the event. If the United States wins the bid, Garber said he would get to work right away because it could lead to the breakthrough he’s been looking for. “We’ll have 12 years to build up momentum and have a long runway to continue to grow the sport,” he said. “What could be better? I’d rather have the World Cup 12 years from now than have it next year.”
cessful than someone who is just as educated and qualified but doesn’t have experience with students,” Picini said. “We’re such a difficult generation, you have to be able to get the message across and be able to hold our attention.” Rev. Linus DeSantis, Catholic chaplain at SU, said the formal installation of Steinwert as dean will help cement her position and influence the SU community. He said Steinwert’s council will be sought to establish policy, and she will be expected to know the community, DeSantis said. “Tiffany Steinwert will be viewed as a pivotal influence in the life of the university. She will be asked to comment on challenging elements confronting the university,” DeSantis said. SU appealed to Steinwert for the high prioritization of the interfaith, she said. “Hendricks Chapel’s motto, ‘A home for all faiths, a place for all people,’ is taken very seriously here,” Steinwert said. Steinwert’s most recent position before transitioning to SU was as senior pastor of Cambridge Welcoming Ministries, an organization
Steinwert founded. The organization advocated for people of all sexual orientations and gender identities to be included in the United Methodist Church. Steinwert also said she was attracted to the job because the position as the dean of Hendricks Chapel at SU is unlike similar positions in other universities. “At other universities, the dean of the chapel is normally also the Protestant chaplain, but here the dean serves the entire university community,” said Steinwert. Steinwert said she has hopes to continue the success of Hendricks Chapel in engaging the university and the surrounding community. “I see this not as an installation of a particular person, but the formal entry of the sixth dean of Hendricks Chapel into an 80-year-old institution,” Steinwert said. “The tradition is ongoing. Now it’s my turn to walk that path for a while. I hope that on Monday we’ll celebrate a moment in the life of the chapel, rather than in an individual.”
about Boland. Woodbury said he decided to apply for the Remembrance Scholarship because he felt a connection to Boland. Boland continues to be a big part of Delta Tau Delta. Woodbury said he had the chance to renovate Boland’s room at the fraternity this summer and read through the letters from him and his family. “It made a real impact on me, and I knew I wanted to represent him,” he said. “I have his fraternity sweatshirt hanging in my room that was passed down to me, and it is a real reminder of how we should all appreciate life.” Despite the on-and-off rain, more than 200
people gathered to remember the victims. “I’ve stood out here in the snow, freezing rain and sleet,” said Thomas Wolfe, senior vice president and dean of student affairs. Wolfe has never missed a ceremony, and he does not ever plan to, he said. “You can’t be indifferent to any result of terrorism.” Despite the painful memories stirred at the ceremony, Wolfe emphasized the Rose Laying Ceremony is also inspirational. It is a sign that existence will not be defined by tragedy but by the power within us, he said. About 30 of the guests were families and friends of nine of the victims, said Judith O’Rourke, director of the Office of Undergraduate Studies in Academic Affairs and Remembrance Scholarship selection committee member. Many of the guests still felt outraged about the release of Abdelbaset al-Megrahi from a Scottish prison on compassionate grounds last year. George White, a Scottish paramedic who found the body of SU student Suzanne Miazga, said he thought al-Megrahi was guilty. “Guilty,” White said. “And he should never have been released.” White is now a close friend of Suzanne’s mother, Anna Miazga, and they attended the ceremony together. Anna remembered her last visit with her daughter a month before she was killed. “When we got to the airport, I said goodbye,” Anna said. She said her daughter came back to say goodbye again. “I just want to say goodbye,” Suzanne said to her mom. “That was the last time I saw her,” Anna said. “I’ll never forget it.”

‘Rolling In’ biased, incorrect The article “Rolling In,” by Kathleen Ronayne and Beckie Strum, which appeared in Thursday’s The Daily Orange, is poorly written, biased and incorrect. Firstly, the title is inaccurate. Molly is not “the purest form of ecstasy.” Ecstasy and Molly are two drugs that are said to contain the substance MDMA. Molly is presented as pure MDMA. Secondly, MDMA is not an amphetamine. It is a strong stimulant that is chemically related but not identical to the amphetamine group. Furthermore, the statement that “pure MDMA reduces the serotonin in the brain” is completely false. While under the influence of MDMA, the brain rapidly releases serotonin. That is what makes the drug work. With chronic use, people may experience serotonin depletion, which does not occur while on the drug. Also, that “the user cannot tell if it is real or fake happiness” is a laughable and false claim. Neurotransmitters act in the brain to make us feel certain ways at different levels, at all times. Serotonin makes us feel happy with or without MDMA. It would be interesting for the authors and Ms. Erin Mulvey (who was said to have made the claim) to clarify what distinguishes
“real” and “fake” happiness. MDMA simply increases the amount of serotonin in the brain, thus making the user feel blissful, energetic and open. A drug that decreases serotonin would not have the ability to make anyone feel good. The article is a joke. For a school that has such a focus on objective journalism, “Rolling In” is a huge disappointment. By the way, the opiate heroin isn’t spelled “heroine.” Check your facts and do some unbiased research. In our society, there are countless misrepresentations, myths and lies about mind-altering substances. Like it or not, people and animals have found ways to alter their states of consciousness since the beginning of time, and we will continue to do so. Deceptions, such as the ones that appear in The Daily Orange’s article, need to be replaced with factual knowledge in order to decrease harm and support safe use.

Lady Gaga positive role model for impressionable young minds
y 6-year-old cousin loves Lady Gaga. Love is actually an understatement. Juliet is infatuated with the pop star who’s constantly winning awards and headlining newspapers, blogs and magazines. Juliet has been caught many a time strutting her stuff around the house, mumbling every single lyric to “Paparazzi” and “Bad Romance.” When I ask Juliet what she wants to be when she grows up, she quickly replies, “A super singer rock star, just like Lady Gaga.” When it came time to prepare for her sixth birthday party, take a guess as to who Juliet wanted me to dress up as. Young girls are exposed to a variety of role models in popular culture today. Some are positive influences, yet the majority of powerful females

in the limelight aren’t exactly the most ideal example setters. Within the past few months alone, Paris Hilton went to jail for cocaine possession, Angelina from “Jersey Shore” simply existed on our television screens, and don’t even get me started on Lindsay Lohan (that poor girl just can’t get her act together). Lady Gaga receives a fair amount of criticism for her fashion choices and rebellious acts, but I couldn’t be happier with Juliet’s decision to make her a role model figure. She teaches young girls to embrace their differences and not to be ashamed of their unique selves. Not only does the pop star advocate uniqueness, but equality as well. Lady Gaga has a handle on political issues she deems important and edu-

not a barbie girl cates her fans on her priorities. The “don’t ask, don’t tell” Senate repeal was one of many subject matters for which Lady Gaga demonstrated a passion. CNN reported on her rally for the “don’t ask, don’t tell” repeal in Maine on Sept. 20. “The 24-year-old singer also drew cheers by proposing a new law, titled ‘If you don’t like it, go home,’ which would remove homophobic straight

soldiers from the military instead of gay soldiers. ‘If you are not honorable enough to fight without prejudice, go home,’ she shouted.” This sense of political awareness alone makes Lady Gaga a better role model than her other female celebrity counterparts. She may party and enjoy herself, but don’t say she doesn’t productively contribute to society in true Lady Gaga fashion: distinctively. Juliet is only in the first grade and will go through many phases throughout her childhood and adolescence. But I commend her for looking up to Lady Gaga for at least the time being, because this kind of role model in popular culture inspires Juliet to do her own thing. She dresses differently from her other first grade classmates and has the confidence to

be her own person. Lady Gaga has an agenda, and her actions are very deliberate. All of her public decisions, from her choice of name to her most recent unicorn tattoo, are purposeful. Lady Gaga uses her celebrity to bring attention to her actions, in hopes that she can positively influence the lives of young women (and men), just like she did for Juliet. I’m happy with my cousin’s choice of role model, and I hope more public figures follow in Lady Gaga’s footsteps. Young females taking progressive steps forward in the realms of fashion, music and politics all at once is definitely something I could get used to. Krystie Yandoli is a junior women’s studies major.

“There is no safe level of secondhand smoke exposure. Exposure to secondhand smoke can cause cancer in tobacco users and non-smoking bystanders,” said Katelyn Upcraft, public health educator at the county health department and coordinator for Colleges for Change. “Even separate smoking areas pose a health threat to our students, faculty and staff.” Upcraft said her group wants to prevent SU students from starting to smoke and becoming addicted to tobacco. She said at least 400 colleges and universities nationwide have outdoor tobacco regulations. “Outdoor air acts are becoming increasingly prevalent around the nation at city and state levels,” Upcraft said. “Not just on college campuses.” There are 4.3 trillion cigarette butts littered

The creators of the blog have not come forward, and the exact reason for the blog’s privacy is still unknown. But its privacy raises questions as to whether the law school and SU’s Office of Judicial Affairs will continue their investigation into the blog and Len Audaer, a second-year law student, who is the only student suspected of writing it. The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education has been following the case closely and criticized the law school for limiting students’ expression. “It looks like Syracuse has achieved the chilling effect on speech that some have been

annually, and it takes 25 years for them to decompose, according to the Wellness Education Services at the State University of New York at Buffalo. “Reducing the environmental impact of tobacco in the Syracuse University community supports Syracuse University’s commitment to work toward an effective and efficient plan to ensure a healthy and sustainable lifestyle,” Upcraft said. Some students said they encourage the move to make SU a smoke-free campus. “I feel like the only time my lungs get a break on campus is when I get home,” said Stephanie Narvaez, a junior in the College of Arts and Sciences. “I think the university puts a lot of importance around being green, so why not being smoke-free?” But some smokers said they feel they are being forced to quit smoking as opposed to quitting by choice. “I don’t think it is right for the campus to
looking for,” said Adam Kissel, vice president of programs at the foundation. “Syracuse is teaching students that they can shut down expression they don’t like, even though it is protected, just by filing a harassment complaint. This is a sad day for students’ rights at Syracuse.” But many critics of the blog claim it did demonstrate harassment and could have been harmful to students’ well-being, especially in light of the damage online pranks have had at other schools like Rutgers University, where a male student committed suicide after his roommate posted live online footage of that student in a sexual act with another man. Gregory Germain, an associate professor of law, is leading the school’s investigation into the blog’s suspected writer, Audaer, after a first-year student filed a harassment complaint. Germain has said the blog is not only offensive but also potentially libelous. He needs neither to prove harassment nor libel to take action against Audaer, as the university is a private institution that does not need to uphold the First Amendment. The blog had a disclaimer saying it was satirical and all the information was untrue. But posts included fake names as well as real names of students, many of whom had no idea their names were online or that the blog existed. Germain said he has no reaction to and knew nothing about the blog going private, in an e-mail. He did not say whether its removal would affect the investigation into the blog or Audaer. Audaer said he has not heard from the school about the investigation since his meeting with Germain on Oct. 18. Audaer neither denies nor confirms that he is the writer of the blog. He said for whatever reason the blog was removed, he hopes it ends the investigation. “There are people in this who want me to be a pioneer,” Audaer said. “But I never wanted this

force students to stop smoking,” said Michael Whalen, a first-year law student. “We are young adults and should have the choice to whether we want to smoke.”
PUSHING TO END SMOKING THIS NOVEMBER Staff at Syracuse University Health Services are pushing awareness of the effects of smoking in November in light of the Great American Smokeout to be held Nov. 18. This year marks the 35th Smokeout. The event is meant to:
• Encourage smokers to use the date as a target date to quit smoking • Make known the risks of smoking • Promote taking steps to living a healthier life • Make known the available options for helping smokers quit • Hold parades, rallies, and stunts to get the word out about smoking source; cancer.org
to be a national news story. I also didn’t want the school to look bad. I just want this to stop.” But Audaer said he feels the law school has dug its feet in and now wants to hold someone accountable for the blog. He said the investigation has strained his relationship with professors and administrators at the school. “It has put a real barrier between me and my school,” Audaer said. He also wonders why the university has not stepped in with an official stance, he said. Members of the university’s administration have kept out of the public discussion about the blog. If Judicial Affairs becomes formally involved, the case will become a university matter just outside the law school’s jurisdiction. Audaer has been talking with a lawyer about the case, he said. If the law school decides to continue the investigation, he may bring a separate complaint against the school’s handling of his case to Judicial Affairs. Audaer said the school violated due process outlined in its own policies by withholding the evidence against him. In the meeting with Germain, he told Audaer about the harassment complaint and that the student who filed it would be major evidence in the case. Audaer still does not know what this important piece of evidence against him is, he said. Roy Gutterman, director of the Tully Center for Free Speech and professor of communications law and journalism, said Audaer might have a case against the school for violation of due process. In this case, the blog does not demonstrate harassment, Gutterman said. “Harassment has a specific legal definition,” Gutterman said, which includes persistent and threatening behavior. “A single reference on a blog is not harassment.” Removal of the blog from public viewing dem-
onstrates self-censorship, Gutterman said. If the creators of SUCOLitis found it necessary to censor themselves after being criticized by an institution at SU, other students will probably feel the need to limit their public expression, too, he said. “As far as setting a precedent, it does,” Gutterman said. “If you offend people, you’re going to get in trouble.” firstname.lastname@example.org
Syracuse University’s Policy on Student Rights and Responsibilities outlines a number of rights students have with regards to free speech and judicial affairs. Here are some directly from the policy website. “Students have the right to express themselves freely on any subject provided they do so in a manner that does not violate the Code of Student Conduct. Students, in turn, have the responsibility to respect the rights of all members of the University to exercise these freedoms.” “Students have the right to fundamental fairness before formal disciplinary sanctions are imposed by the University for violations of the Code of Student Conduct-as provided in the published procedures of the University Judicial System or other official University publications.”
VIOLATIONS OF THE CODE OF CONDUCT
“Harassment, whether physical or verbal, oral or written, which is beyond the bounds of protected free speech, directed at a specific individual(s), easily construed as “fighting words,” and likely to cause an immediate breach of the peace.” “Forgery, alteration, fabrication, or misuse of identification cards, records, grades, diplomas, University documents, or misrepresentation of any kind to a University office or official.”

ESF launched its participation in the “Cotton. From Blue to Green.” campaign with an event in Marshall Hall Wednesday, featuring promotional Frisbees, shirts and informational pamphlets. The national campaign to bring attention to sustainable housing construction will convert the donated jeans into sustainable, natural fiber housing insulation to be used by Habitat for Humanity.
“We have about two weeks, I think once we get the word out and people learn where the collection bins are, things will pick up.” Shaylyn Decker
president of Green Campus Initiative and senior environmental studies major
Cotton invited five universities to participate in the campaign. ESF was not included, but SU offered to collaborate with ESF to reach its goal. SU has already collected more than 400 pairs during October through collection events and donation bins located around campus, said Shaylyn Decker, president of Green Campus Initiative and senior environmental studies major. GCI, a student organization that aims to promote sustainability at ESF, led the effort to bring the campaign to ESF and will oversee the
collection events and donation bin maintenance on campus until the campaign ends Oct. 31. SU provided the student organization with the promotional products and collection bins, making it easy for ESF to get onboard, said Decker. “It was so easy it seemed silly not to do it,” she said. She said only a few people donated at Wednesday’s event. GCI will host two more collection events and end the campaign with the “Drop Your Jeans on the Quad” event on the ESF Quad at an as-of-yet undecided date. It takes 500 pieces of denim to insulate a house. The natural fiber, called UltraTouch Cotton insulation, has already been used in 500 new houses in communities in need, said Andrew Dorr, a senior environmental studies major and energy coordinator of GCI. To convert the denim to insulation, zippers and buttons are removed from the jeans and then shredded to revert the denim back to its original fiber form, Dorr said. The fiber is then treated with a nontoxic solution for mold and mildew resistance and fire protection. The insulation is made of 85 percent recycled cotton and does not contain carcinogens, formaldehyde or chemical irritants, according to the campaign’s website. It is the only insulation that contains an active mold and mildew inhibitor. The campaign was originally launched in 2006 and collected more than 14,566 pieces of denim that year, according to the campaign’s website. The campaign saw a 110 percent increase in 2007, with more than 36,000 pieces collected. In 2009, 270,617 pieces of denim were collected and prevented 200 tons of denim from being sent to landfills. This year, several retail stores, including Gap, are participating in the campaign by offering customers discounts on new jeans when they donate old jeans. More than 270,000 pieces have been collected through
illustration by molly snee | art director retail efforts alone, according to the website. Autumn Elniski, a freshman paper engineering major, said the transfer of jeans to insulation is a great idea. “It’s a good substitute for things that aren’t biodegradable,” she said. “It’s a good way to recycle, so we don’t have to keep making things that are bad for the planet.” Elniski said she hopes more schools and communities will take ESF and SU’s lead and incorporate recycling and sustainable materials into construction projects.
“ESF is a role model for environmental responsibility in New York,” Elniski said. “Hopefully, it will be integrated into the community.” Although the turnout for Wednesday’s event was smaller than expected, Decker said she thinks donations will increase once the campaign gets more attention on campus. “We have about two weeks,” Decker said. “I think once we get the word out and people learn where the collection bins are, things will pick up.” email@example.com

‘39 Steps’ successful adaptation By Noah Silverstein Contributing Writer
With expert acting and smart directing, “The 39 Steps” is a hilarious comedy that uses farce to its fullest capabilities. The play is based on John Buchan’s 1915 novel and Alfred Hitchcock’s 1935 film of the same name. Four incredibly dynamic actors take on the many roles comprising groups of characters, unlike the original film’s large cast. Also contradictory of the original film, the serious story of espionage and murder has become a series of hysterical, action-packed scenes. Set in London and Scotland in the 1930s, the story centers around Richard Hannay and his misadventures with the law, spies and an ever-varying cast of characters that appear along his journey for vindication. Hannay is self-described as an average single man who rents a humble flat in London. Falsely accused of murder, Hannay is on the run from the police, spies and vengeful assassins. The plot kicks into overdrive when he must keep a detrimental secret from being exposed. It is only at the end when the audience discovers the answer to the one question that had been a mystery the whole time: What really is “The 39 Steps?” With such a complex and innately funny adaptation by Patrick Barlow, director Peter Amster had the huge undertaking of putting this play on at Syracuse Stage. With fast-paced timing and dialogue, Amster does a superb job of elevating the play to a level of humor that is much greater than anticipated. Scene transitions are completely seamless with a minimalist set and prop use. Thankfully, this puts an extra focus on the performances of the actors. Scenic designer Linda Buchanan lends a great hand in executing this aspect. Praise must also be given to Tracy Dorman for providing beautiful costumes for each character. The performances were what truly made the piece soar. Nick Sandys’ portrayal of Richard Hannay was nothing short of phenomenal. His comedic timing never lags, and his charm is undeniable. Every move made and word uttered was completely in character. Being the only actor who played one continuous part throughout the play, he had the luxury of focusing on only one mindset. However, his emotions came realistically, standing out in many scenes against actors playing various comedic roles. see 39 steps page 10

lood gushed from their faces, dripping to the ground. Their shirts were stained crimson red, symmetrically splattered across their chests. As these visions of the undead limped down Comstock Avenue, moaning and growling with every stumble, the living did not turn and run for their lives. They laughed. “The people driving by think it’s kind of funny,” said Amy Rourke, a Syracuse resident. Rourke was one of the 127 people dressed as the
undead for the zombie Walk, which broke out Saturday afternoon. The walk, created by the Cayuga Community College Zombie Research Club, helped raise money for American Red Cross Disaster Relief. Brendan McCarey, the event’s creator, said the money might be needed for an eventual zombie apocalypse. “We figured that would work well with zombies,” said McCarey. Participants were allowed to walk for free, but were encouraged to make a donation to the fund. People who donated $5 or more received a bloodspattered T-shirt that read, “It’s not a matter of if, but a matter of when.” Although McCarey said he
was hoping to raise a little more money, the walk made $700 in donations. McCarey, a student at CCC, raised the dead at Syracuse instead of CCC’s campus in Fulton because he wanted a larger crowd. He said Syracuse’s size created the perfect venue for the flesheaters to roam free. With fake chunks of skin hanging from their faces, the zombies lumbered down Comstock Avenue to Morningside Cemetery. “If you see the humans, feel free to attack them,” McCarey said.

Students pig out at Kappa Alpha Theta’s first wing-eating contest By Brittany Fowler Contributing Writer
The aroma of freshly cooked wings filled Walnut Place as Kappa Alpha Theta hosted its first wing-eating contest, Wing It, Friday evening. “I think it was a huge success,” said Kerry Kindinger, the philanthropy chair of the Kappa Alpha Theta women’s fraternity chapter at Syracuse University. She said the crowd was so large she couldn’t see over the spectators’ heads. The proceeds from the event, around $1,300 total, will go to a local Onondaga County branch of Court Appointed Special Advocates, Kindinger said. The group works with abused and neglected children involved in county court. The women’s fraternity’s national branch has had a relationship with CASA for around 50 years, Kindinger said. A tent set up in Walnut Park covered a row of tables and chairs arranged for the participants. The women’s fraternity played Top 40 hits from its house at 306 Walnut Place. Signs covered the front porch, declaring the event name with the assertion “Don’t be a chicken.” Kappa Alpha Theta house’s chef cooked the approximately

3,000 wings on site. All participants were required to wear a black shirt bearing the design for Wing It: a skull and cross made of wings instead of bones. The shirts were also available to non-participants for $5. There was no limit to the amount of participants per student organization, but greek contestants were limited to five participants per group, Kindinger said. The tables under the tent were set with a dish of wings, a cup of water for each participant and extra wings in the middle. In total, there were four rounds of wing-eaters: one group of girls and three groups of guys. A Theta sister stood behind each participant and recorded how many wings he or she ate. At the end, the sisters held up a sheet that had the total number of wings consumed by each competitor. The girls ate first, taking their seats and anxiously staring at their dish. Ripping the wings apart, they feasted as their friends and the audience cheered them on. About halfway through the round, a chant erupted: “Eat that meat!” At the end of the round, some girls were only able to get through seven wings, but others, like winner Jessica Wolfe from Phi Sigma Sigma,
ate 22. “I could’ve ate more,” said Wolfe, a sophomore fashion design major, after her friends helped her clean up with wipes. “I wasn’t really tasting them, I was inhaling them.” The guys were the next to eat. Wolfe stayed, waiting to see if the male sitting in her former spot would “uphold the winner chair.” Instead of the lengthy five-minute round, the guys only had three minutes to scarf down all the wings they could stomach. Tearing into the meat with sauce splashing across their faces and coating the tips of their fingers, the contestants pressed on. After three minutes of yelling and cheering, the whistle was blown. Results ranged from 14 wings to the winning 44 wings consumed by Joe Scrofani, a junior sport management major from the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity. He cleaned up, removed his iPod ear buds, from which he listened to music during the competition, and said he “could eat more.” Two smaller groups of guys competed, with winning results of 28 and 18 wings, respectively. The girl and guy contestants who ate the most wings received a $25 gift certificate to local

Allen, a self-professed zombie fan, said he missed out on the campus-wide zombie game, “Humans vs. Zombies,” last April, but was glad he could find an alternative. “(We’re) a bunch of zombie fans out there ready to show it,” Allen said. With no students to feed on in the cemetery, the zombies became cannibalistic. Shaw Dining
Center wasn’t going to cut it. Some chased after one particular victim among the crumbling headstones until they caught a zombie. Tackling the fellow member of the undead, the zombies swarmed him. But zombies can’t eat other zombies, so a mauling had to suffice. Despite the blood and carnage, some zombies were glad others would benefit from the group’s acts of savagery. “It’s a good cause, and it’s great people came out,” said Pat Collins, an Oswego resident who helped McCarey organize the event. Entering the back side of the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry campus, the zombies began looking for food. The growls grew louder, the limping legs shuffled faster. Begrudgingly, these zombies obeyed traffic laws. Crossing the street from ESF to SU campus, the zombies stopped, allowing for traffic to pass through. “Zombies don’t give a s*** about traffic,” said one zombie as she waited to cross to SU.

Theta has fundraised for its philanthropy with numerous other events, including a flag football tournament in the spring, called “Theta Bowl,” and a designer jean sale. Kindinger said the jean sale was replaced with the wing-eating contest because of the small funds the sale brought in.

an abandoned ESF campus, the zombies finally found what they had been looking for: flesh. As students walked to Archbold Gymnasium, zombies would run up to them, snarling and clawing for a meal. When they passed tennis courts, some zombies would sprint toward the fence and shake them. But even in the face of the undead, SU students couldn’t help but crack a smile. “It’s a weird approach, but it’s very unique,” said Guy Campbell, a freshman public relations major. “I just wouldn’t have known it was for the Red Cross unless somebody came up and told me.” As they left campus, the zombies managed to resist their craving for human brains, and no students were hurt. Wiping the blood from their faces, the zombies later met for a Halloween party at Funk ‘n Waffles. All of the money raised at the party also went to the Red Cross. “The zombies look great, we’re having fun. That’s what matters,” McCarey said. “We’re doing a good thing.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Sarah Nealis, who portrayed Annabella Schmidt, Margaret and Pamela, had a masterful charisma and stage presence. Her characters were completely different in their characteristics, and Nealis embodied each of them precisely. Most notable was the accents for her characters, each of different nationalities. The incredibly dynamic duo of Rob Johansen and Joe Foust, who play Clown 1 and Clown 2, respectively, round out the cast. These two
fearless, highly skilled and rather shameless performers take on the responsibility of playing everyone else in the play. From spies to Scottish farmers to women, in some cases, these men completely commit themselves to even the smallest parts of the play. To say they stole the show would be an understatement. “The 39 Steps” reminds us that even when difficulties present themselves in life, it’s OK — and even therapeutic — to just laugh.

Tune-up With Fox’s ‘Glee’ coming up flat, here are the best ways to get the show back in key Re-emphasize the characters
Yes, “Glee” was never extremely plot-driven, but there were some ongoing storylines that fueled viewers’ anticipations. Extend Quinn and Sam’s romance; add some drama to the mix, like Puck or Finn becoming jealous. More tension never hurt anyone (at least not immediately).

hey’ve done Madonna, they’ve done Britney, they’ve even done “Yentl” (yeah, it was odd). But tomorrow, “Glee” finally tackles a film theme. In honor of Halloween, this week’s “Glee” episode takes on “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” In theory, the episode should be great — talented singers taking on an old classic — but with the way this season is panning out, it’ll end up being another flop. The Emmy Award-winning comedy currently suffers from a case of good ideas with bad execution. The writers’ grand ideas and commitment to cover every song ever written has overshadowed the gems that made “Glee” special last season. Character development, interesting storylines and the whole idea that “being who you are is good enough sometimes” take backseats this time around. Finn and Rachel’s annoying puppy love crossed the threshold of cute into disgusting with Rachel’s neurotic
No more music videos
There must be a reason why MTV stopped airing them so much. The beauty of the musical numbers diminishes when it turns into a full-blown music video found in a bathroom or dream sequence. Let’s go back to singing in the music room.
A good thing about this season is that characters other than Rachel get to sing. At the same time, she still overpowers every song. As for Mercedes, her soulful voice is great — just not when she holds high notes for an entire number. How about some variation?

ego taking center stage. The beautiful friendship that blossomed between Quinn and Mercedes never comes up, and now Brittany breaks hearts. One of the show’s biggest selling points, the students’ relationships, feels awkward and disjointed in favor of more songs. The best episode thus far, “Faith,” felt forced. The subject matter pulled heartstrings, but the actual acting fell flat compared to the monologue Kurt’s father gave when he overheard Finn call Kurt an inappropriate name. The burgeoning romance between Quinn and newcomer Sam has potential. But the fact that they fell for each other, went on a date and became a couple all in one episode weakens the “aw” factor viewers developed watching Finn and Rachel or Tina and Artie come together. So “Glee” isn’t quite what it used to be, and “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” episode won’t cure the second-season slump. But here are five suggestions “Glee” can use to save this season and avoid the same problems in its third season. firstname.lastname@example.org
Let’s be honest, Sue Sylvester’s (Jane Lynch) character is a show staple. Her lack of filter and obsession with competitive cheerleading give viewers a lot to laugh about and make them root for those kids in New Directions even more. She needs to refocus on taking the club down, despite her random act of kindness of keeping the club going at the end of the first season
Sell the show, not the iTunes tracks
“GLEE” Network: FOX
When “Glee” first started, artists were afraid to have their songs remade. Now everyone wants a “Glee”-done track. That doesn’t mean everyone should get one, though. Only songs that fit in the show should make the cut in. Paramore’s “Only Exception” didn’t need to be redone, but it was anyway. Stick to a plan, not just random tunes.

SU left demoralized after shutout loss to last-place Rutgers By Allison Guggenheimer Staff Writer
Ian McIntyre sat alone at the end of the bench. There was still 15 minutes left to play in Saturday’s 3-0 loss to Rutgers, but the deflated coach abandoned his usual post, standing a few yards to the left of midfield for the solace of the Rutgers 3 covered bench. So there he sat. Syracuse 0 McIntyre, the Syracuse men’s soccer coach, had just watched his team surrender three goals to the worst team in the Big East. An SU defense that kept the team in numerous games while the offense struggled had just broken down on three separate occasions. His offense, which has struggled to score all season, repeatedly created and then botched all its chances. “I was tired, I think emotionally and physically,” McIntyre said. The back four was unable to stay on its men, letting the Rutgers offense slip into the middle almost uncontested. Although the Syracuse (2-8-5, 0-4-3 Big East) defense allowed Rutgers (4-9-1, 1-6-0 Big East) to muster only eight shots,

19-14 victory over WVU (5-2, 1-1 Big East) — its first since 2001. With the win, Syracuse brings back the Schwartzwalder Trophy, given to the winner of this game each year. “We weren’t playing to (preserve) the win,” junior defensive end Mikhail Marinovich said. “We were playing to attack, attack, attack. … That’s the mindset we went out with.” After allowing WVU to score touchdowns on two of its first three possessions to start the game, the SU defense clamped down. What started with a Phillip Thomas interception at the goal line, with the Orange trailing 14-10, ended with SU celebrating at midfield after holding the Mountaineers scoreless for the final
more than one-third of them found the back of the net. Despite having a consistently solid defense, McIntyre said he decided to switch things up in search of an offensive spark. He moved senior outside back Justin Arena up to midfield, putting Nick Bibbs, who played defensive midfielder for most of the season, into Arena’s spot. “Nick Bibbs is a good defender,” Arena said. “And if I’m going to play up top in a wide position, someone like Nick Bibbs is perfect back there. He’s a good defender, he’s fast, he’s good with his feet.” But McIntyre’s decision resulted in the first goal. Bibbs matched up on the right side of the field with Rutgers midfielder Nate Bourdeau. Bibbs said he was not marking Bourdeau tightly enough. So when Bourdeau got possession down the sideline, Bibbs’ tackle did not come off cleanly. The ball deflected off Bourdeau to Rutgers’ Yannick Salmon, who was waiting in the middle of the field. Salmon’s shot went into the upper corner of the goal, nowhere near SU keeper Jeremy Vuolo.
Minutes later, Arena was back on defense. “I don’t think it was working as well as I was hoping it would,” McIntyre said. “It looked good on paper.” But even with the back four intact, the defense was still not able to find a rhythm. The second and third goals both came on additional defensive errors. Bourdeau, yet again, caused trouble down the line, getting inside on defender Robbie Hughes and knocking the ball into the middle. The player waiting there was not being covered and tipped the ball in easily. And the final goal was simply a matter of not marking. Salmon was unmarked in the middle of the box and headed the ball unchallenged into the goal. “The second goal — I don’t know how their striker was so open to get the toe poke into the corner,” Bibbs said. “Well, he came across one of our center backs. That can’t happen. … We’ve got to be tight on our marks. The third goal was just — you need to have the courage or something to win the ball in the air. He had a free header and just banged it right into the corner. Those types of goals can’t happen.”
The offense provided little support. Although its attacks came close every time, no one was able to finish. Seven corner kicks and a few good crosses left the ball in the center of the Rutgers box, but Syracuse could not settle the ball. The team had 19 shots to Rutgers’ eight and still lost 3-0. With conference play coming to a close, a win Saturday would have put the Orange in a good position to clinch one of the two remaining Big East tournament spots. A loss, however, means it is clinging to sixth place. With two games remaining this season, the team will need to win both to guarantee a postseason berth. On Wednesday, Syracuse will face No. 2 Louisville, which is undefeated in the Big East. So with only a few days, after a loss to the Big East’s worst team, to prepare to play the conference’s best team, Bibbs said SU has a lot to work on in practice. “We need to work on finishing more,” Bibbs said. “And I think individual defending we’ll work on a lot this week before Louisville comes in.”
three quarters. Thomas’ interception proved to be pivotal, as were the two interceptions by linebacker Doug Hogue. Overall, with the three turnovers, five sacks, and point total and yardage allowed, the performance was easily SU’s most impressive defensively. Especially after allowing 45 points to Pittsburgh just a week ago inside the Carrier Dome. “Last week, we were very disappointed,” senior middle linebacker Derrell Smith said. “We went down to South Florida two weeks ago, got a win and maybe there was a relaxed feeling. But we took care of it fast after that Pittsburgh loss.” After a Hogue interception on WVU’s first possession set up a Syracuse field goal, the Orange grabbed some initial momentum. The next three possessions all ended in touchdown celebrations — two by the Mountaineers and
one for the Orange. But with Thomas’ interception, the Mountaineers missed an opportunity to go up 21-10, and the Orange kept pounding the ball and taking points. Kicker Ross Krautman made four field goals, the longest of which came from 33 yards out. The Orange also implemented a few packages that defensive coordinator Scott Shafer had been keeping in his back pocket for such an occasion. That allowed SU to put pressure on Smith and neutralize such an explosive offense — one that entered the game ranked third in the Big East in total offense. “West Virginia is a great football team,” SU head coach Doug Marrone said. “There is no plan or anything to beating a West Virginia football team. The only way is you go out there and you play your heart out. … And at the end of the day, you hope you can execute better and take advantage of maybe some miscues. And we
were able to do that.” With the win, the Orange surpassed its win total from last season, Marrone’s first on the job, and allows SU to take one step closer to its first bowl bid since 2004. It also puts the Orange in second place in the Big East after eight weeks. Until now, beating West Virginia was something the players and coaches had only dreamt about. But stopping a driving WVU offense in the final minute changed all that. And the final sack secured it. “There was a lot of pressure to keep them out of the end zone,” Hogue said. “But it was amazing. We just played solid football, stayed disciplined and got the job done. “It’s still settling in on me. It’s just a great feeling.”

Rushing attack DRILL carries SU to win over WVU
Doug Marrone After an unexpected win two weeks ago at South Florida, Marrone and his team one-upped it with SU’s first win over the Mountaineers since 2001. It was an especially impressive bounce back from a demoralizing loss last week to Pittsburgh.
Ross Krautman As the Orange drove on offense, but couldn’t convert those drives into touchdowns, Krautman made sure the drives turned into points. He went 4-for-4 on field-goal attempts, and is now 10-for-11 on the season. Chandler Jones The junior defensive end provided the spark for a dominant SU defense with two sacks of West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith. He now has four on the season.
Ryan Nassib At halftime, WVU’s Smith had more completions to Syracuse players (via three interceptions) than did Nassib (two completions). He finished just 5-for-15 for 63 yards on the day. Delone Carter The senior running back bruised his hip in the second quarter Saturday after rushing for 75 yards in just 18 minutes. With injuries already plaguing this roster, losing Carter for an extended period of time would put a damper on this win.
HERO Doug Hogue Hogue was named the nation’s defensive Player of the Week after his performance in harassing West Virginia’s offensive playmakers. He had 1.5 tackles for loss and 10 tackles, adding two interceptions as well.
ZERO Geno Smith Smith’s three interceptions turned the tide in the game. His first, picked by Hogue, led to a Syracuse field goal. His second, picked by Phillip Thomas, ended a WVU drive deep in SU territory. And his third, picked again by Hogue, was returned 49 yards deep into WVU territory, leading to another field goal.

Asst. Sports Editor
MORGANTOWN, W. Va. — Doug Marrone envisioned his offensive game plan as a chessboard. He would block man-on-man, stacking extra pawns at the offensive line. And Syracuse would run rampant in Marrone’s “Big” formation against West Virginia’s vaunted No. 4 run defense all game. “It was a chess match,” Marrone said. Checkmate. Marrone’s plan for SU to attack West Virginia’s 3-3-5 defense with its “Big” two-tight end, two-back formation was practiced to perfection in the Orange’s 19-14 upset. It also helped to manage the game just as Marrone intended. The offensive success put on a show for the rest of the Big East against the supposed brick-wall WVU defense. It was a show that starred running back Delone Carter for 18 minutes. For the remaining 42, it showcased the entire Syracuse offense and Marrone’s NFL-bred knack to devise in the face of an opponent’s strength. “Our philosophy is to win running the football,” Marrone said. “And you have to, because if you get into a passing game against (West Virginia), we would have been in trouble. … So we put ourselves in manageable situations throughout the game.” Thanks to the changeup in SU’s loaded-line formation Saturday, the Orange attacked WVU with the time-churning, ground-heavy attack. It accounted for 183 yards in the game and 72 percent of SU’s offensive plays. In the first half, it was about throttling the Mountaineers for 19 points. In the second, it was about keeping the SU defense fresh and preserving that lead over the course of a half with nine consecutive punts. But it wasn’t Carter’s show, as the starting running back went down with a bruised right

anyway. They may have known of the explicit cockiness exhibited directly across Mountaineer Field behind the smoke and mirrors. They may have orchestrated their own synchronized taking of the field. Whatever the case, the Syracuse players made their official entrance to Mountaineer Field the same way their coach won the game. The same way their coach is quietly making this program one that is already becoming envied across the Big East: Coming straight at you in the face of what you do, whether it be taking the field or with an ambush of an offensive game plan. Praise from Dave Wannstedt to Bill Stewart in back-to-back weeks in polar situations speaks to that. Prior to Saturday, the envy was mostly because of what was transpiring off the field. Saturday, it was all exhibited on it. A total team. It was a new SU, peeking out of that own figurative haze and peaking as a program in the land of Appalachia. Led by Marrone, of course, for a national audience to familiarize itself with. But more than anything else — more than Doug Hogue’s national defensive Player of the

After he left the game with 12 minutes left in the second quarter, having set the tempo with 77 yards rushing on just nine attempts — including a 46-yard sprint — Antwon Bailey would have to carry out Marrone’s plan. Carter had ripped the air out of Mountaineer Field. Now Bailey had to keep the silence. “(Carter) came up to me at halftime, and he said he had something going on with him, and he wanted me out there 100 percent rather than him out there the way he was,” Bailey said. “He said it was my show.” The game started by going to Carter, Carter, Carter on first through third downs, with Ryan Nassib handing the senior the ball to bull through the WVU defense. In the second quarter, it just as quickly became Bailey, Bailey, Bailey. The 5-foot-8 running back picked up right where Carter left off, rushing for 94 yards on just 19 carries. In the process, he enabled SU to keep with the “Big” formation for the rest of the game. SU rushed the ball 28 times to just 11 Nassib passes after Carter was injured. With West Virginia adjusting to SU’s game plan by stacking more bodies in gaps, the Orange responded with its own change of pace.
But it was change of pace that would remain within the ground-heavy game plan. Just when the Mountaineer faithful and the WVU defense were sure it was Bailey exclusively, freshman Prince-Tyson Gulley entered the fray. Gulley, who could barely swallow days ago with swollen tonsils, rushed for 19 yards with a long of 11 in the second half. Gulley was the last part of a show stamped with the “run the ball down your throat” mentality for which SU tight end Jose Cruz said the offense fully prepared. “Everyone went man for man,” Cruz said. “We picked up blocks, and there were pieces on the outside of the defense, and we hit them. They tried to bring different looks in the second half, and we picked them up.” By the end, SU had run intelligently with the formation, as it became more of a clock-burner than a point-provider. The SU backs were kept out of the end zone in the last half. But the game was one managed by the SU offense throughout. And because of its “Big” formation, Nassib was able to end the game surrounded by an even bigger one: the victory formation. “Game plan is great,” Nassib said. “And the rest is history.”
Week accolades and Scott Shafer’s continued ruckus-inducing pressure defense — Saturday was the showcase of Doug Marrone. It was his moment. It was his game. And it was the perfect example of it occurring his way. No masquerading of Hogue at running back. No last ditch experimenting with Cam Dantley at quarterback. And definitely no dancing after his biggest win yet. He already has two Big East road wins, more than Greg Robinson tallied in his entire tenure. No, there would be no dancing for Marrone. There was animation, however: Barking at refs, sprints down the sidelines and many colorful instances chewing out his offensive linemen. But it was all real. As was the win. It felt total, and it was. Saturday, Marrone’s vision swallowed, whole, the tunnel vision that encompassed Morgantown. It’s the same one that included a plan all along to coach at Syracuse. It was one that weeded out the Robinson leftovers that weren’t fit for the kind of total team that played Saturday. One that has maintained every team is the same and every win is the same — West Virginia included. One that says little to the media, and even less after a win the multitude of Saturday’s. All the animation is saved for his team, his
guys. But even after the win, there was that little from Marrone. Instead, there was the scene of his players’ own SU kind of “Country Roads” celebration. They had earned it. As they crowded near their tunnel before re-entering it, rejoicing and dancing in front of the sparse Orange fans that had made the trip, Marrone let his players have the spotlight. He stood removed from the stands, behind his players. Still with that stoic, business mindset and emotion draped all over his face. He has said he doesn’t want to make a big deal out of things — and hasn’t. Everything is a small step. But re-entering that tunnel before linebackers coach Dan Conley ran back again to save some of the emotion with one last look and picture of the scoreboard, Marrone had to know what just happened. He perfected a plan for it, after all. After nearly 700 days of coaching in national obscurity, the smoke cloud is gone. There is no more hiding. Doug Marrone is for real. And from now on, everyone will at least try to be ready for him. Now they know.

SU clinches regular-season conference title By Jason Krakower Staff Writer
Martina Loncarica has a tendency to step up in big situations. The junior midfielder had four game-winning goals coming into the weekend. But with the conference championship on the line and No. 4 Connecticut deadlocked in a syracuse 1 scoreless tie, Loncarica she still had a few connecticut 0 proved late-game heroics left in syracuse 3 her bag of tricks. under six minBoston College 2 utesJust into double overtime on Saturday, Loncarica took a pass from freshman Leonie Geyer on a penalty corner and blasted the game-winning goal into the right corner of the cage for a 1-0 victory. The goal clinched SU’s third straight Big East regular season title, locked up the top seed in the conference tournament and lifted the No. 8 Orange (12-4, 5-0 Big East) to its fifth overtime win of the season. “We’re pretty much professionals at overtime, so (it’s) like our thing,” junior back Nicole Nelson said. “We’re always really confident when we go into overtime. We really, really wanted this game, so we didn’t think about losing at all.” Nelson and the rest of the SU defense maintained that confidence throughout Saturday’s game against UConn (13-4, 3-2 Big East), which averages three goals per game. Sunday, the Orange used that confidence to defeat No. 14 Boston College, 3-2.
Against the Huskies, sophomore goalkeeper Leann Stiver was a wall behind them with 11 saves in her return to the field after missing three games. The defense stayed strong during a number of UConn’s opportunities, including a key stretch of the first overtime during which the Huskies seemed to be on the brink of snatching the game away. Freshman back Laura Hahnefeldt was sent off with a yellow card for nearly the final five minutes of the period, but several defensive stops and a miraculous diving save by Stiver kept the Orange alive. SU always found a way to come up with a stop, despite being outshot 15-11, and head coach Ange Bradley said that resiliency was the decisive factor in the game. “I have to give the kids a lot of credit, they stepped up and they competed,” Bradley said. “It was very much a defensive battle. UConn is just such a good team and such a good program, and it was a matter of who was finally going to break.” Bradley said the thrill of the victory over a top-five team provided momentum heading into Sunday’s game against Boston College (10-6). But there were negative lingering effects as well. As a result of the length and intensity of the UConn game, fatigue and a lack of focus were potential issues for the Orange. But despite players performing at less than full strength, the Orange found enough stamina to win, again riding the strength of the defenders to a victory over the Golden Eagles.
Sophomore back Amy Kee assisted on a goal by sophomore back Iona Holloway on a corner and added a goal of her own, and Loncarica fittingly provided the game winner on a penalty stroke with 5:11 remaining. Kee said practice during the week focused more on UConn, but the preparation carried over because BC has a similar playing style. One of the main aspects of getting ready for the Huskies was working exhaustingly on penalty corners, and that made a significant difference on Sunday as SU was able to convert in that situation. “It was a major thing for us because we’ve had a history of not scoring goals against UConn, so we practiced that a lot this week,” Kee said. “We scored the first goal from that today, and obviously it was very important to get on the scoreboard.” The extensive mental and physical preparation have paid off for Bradley’s squad, not only with the Big East title but also the current fivegame winning streak that includes four victories over ranked opponents. Amid the many lineup changes and cloud of questions about the team’s unity, the streak and performance from the weekend have Bradley optimistic about SU’s potential to close out the season. “I’m really excited about the growth of our team, and we’re really starting to come together,” Bradley said. “To get back-to-back wins at this time of year against two top teams, it says so much for Syracuse.”

Syracuse upsets West Virginia for marquee road conference victory By Andrew L. John
ORGANTOWN, W. Va. — Chandler Jones glanced up at the scoreboard. Eight years of waiting, and Syracuse was on the cusp of something big. Through the game’s first 59 minutes, the Orange had played arguably its most impressive game of the season to this point. But with just a minute remaining, No. 20 West Virginia was driving. “I looked back at the clock and there was one minute and three seconds left, and I was like, ‘This is it, the game is on our shoulders,’” Jones said. Hanging onto a narrow five-point lead, SU wouldn’t budge. Twenty yards
from the end zone, the Orange rejected three consecutive attempts to gain any positive yardage by the explosive WVU offense. And on fourth-and-22, with just 49 seconds remaining, Jones, Anthony Perkins and a blitzing Shamarko Thomas reached West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith for SU’s fifth sack of the game. Just like that, in front of 58,122 at Milan Puskar Stadium, eight years of Mountaineer domination came to an end. Led by a stout defense that allowed just 99 yards of total offense and zero points in the second half, the Orange (5-2, 2-1 Big East) crashed West Virginia’s Homecoming with a

M BOWL OR BUST The Syracuse football team beat West Virginia 19-14 Saturday, arguably its biggest triumph in Doug Marrone’s time as head coach. Two-touchdown underdogs, SU beat the Mountaineers for the first time since 2001. Syracuse is tied for second place in the Big East. With five wins, the Orange now needs just two more to be bowl-eligible for the first time since 2004.
ORGANTOWN, W. Va. — Standing at the crest of the smoke seeping from the West Virginia tunnel, clenching a sledgehammer seven feet in the air, Joe Madsen wasn’t ready for Doug Marrone. The West Virginia center, the key of the WVU offensive line that Marrone and Syracuse shocked in its 19-14 upset, stood at the front of his team’s brash entrance. To the adoration of 58,122 who had trekked to the stadium, Madsen pumped the sledgehammer in the air. If only they knew. Tunnel vision is a fickle thing. Minutes prior to the start of a
