Election day is Nov. 2. In addition to the mayoral race, seats in the Onondaga County Legislature and Syracuse Common Council, as well as suburban municipal offices, are also up for election. corey henry senior staff photographer

yracuse Common Councilor Michael Greene admitted defeat in the Democratic primary for Syracuse’s mayoral election on June 29. After the ballots were counted, he trailed by just 36 votes. While the Onondaga County Democratic Committee endorsed Greene for the candidacy in February, fellow Common Councilor Khalid Bey will face Janet Burman and incumbent Mayor Ben Walsh on election day. Just over 6,000 Syracuse residents voted in the Democratic primary, according to the Onondaga County Board of Elections. Greene and Bey each received just under 3,000 votes, with Bey barely coming out on top. Mark Brockway, a professor in Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of

Citizenship and Public Affairs, said local elections should be held in the same or higher regard as national elections, but because of the lack of turnout, several races are predicted to be decided by a small number of votes. “Local elections have more of a direct impact on people’s lives,” Brockway said. “Because in off years, voting is rare — or at least turnout isn’t as high — the impact of each vote is higher.” One of the classes Brockway teaches is PSC 121, American National Government and Politics, which is primarily geared towards freshmen. The class has an average enrollment of 150, Brockway said. While the difference in voter totals for the Democratic primary was just 36, the difference in the Republican primary was larger — 269 votes, with Burman coming out on top. Still, just one SU class section could see voting page 4

SWSSU, SU disagree on contact since list of demands By Katie McClellan

Stand With Survivors SU and Syracuse University disagreed on the amount of contact the two groups have had with each other since the release of SWSSU’s demands. While SU said that multiple attempts at contact were made, SWSSU said they have not received any correspondence from

university officials. Following the release of SWSSU’s demands on Oct. 26, SU said in a statement that the university’s Student Activism Engagement Team “connected” with SWSSU. “Members of the Student Activ ism Engagement Team have previously communicated with SWSSU, and we invite ongoing discussion with them,”

We have not spoken to or heard from any of the SAET members since the manifesto’s release Nancy Linehan swssu member

the SU statement said. “We also commit to continued productive and transparent dialogue with our university community on these issues.” SWSSU member Nancy Linehan said that this is not true. “We have not spoken to or heard from any of the SAET members since the manifesto’s release,” Linehan said in a statement to The Daily Orange. “It reflects very strongly on

Chancellor Kent Syverud’s character that we have not heard from him, and this leads us to question if he truly cares about the safety and well being of the student body.” SWSSU has previously met with SA President David Bruen and Vice President Darnelle Stinfort. Bruen denied he was speaking on behalf of SAET, and instead said he was speaking in see activism page 4

SA struggles to supply period products at SU SU urges students to get flu shots By Oko Khosbayar

contributing writer

After the pandemic, Student Association stopped supplying dispensers across campus, but it said it hopes to restart the program with Syracuse University administration. wendy wang asst. photo editor By Ivana Xie

asst. copy editor

Syracuse University’s Student Association started to provide free menstrual hygiene products in 2017 after it allocated $500 to the purchase of around 2,500 tampons and 750 pads. But in recent years, it has moved away from managing it. SA President David Bruen shared the difficulties of maintaining the restock of menstrual hygiene products. “The idea was that we as SA would have students put the products into bathrooms. And when we were doing that, it was completely run by students — completely volunteer — and it had to be upkept by us, as students. That was just not sustainable,” Bruen said. “We decided to work

with the university in providing this in bathrooms.” Bruen said SA wanted this program to be available in all campus bathrooms. SA is working with administration to provide free menstrual hygiene products across campus, he said. “It’s something we’re determined to expand this year. It’s something we campaigned on expanding. It’s just been slow going,” he said. In fall 2021, when students and faculty returned to hybrid and in-person instruction after SU transitioned to fully online instruction in March 2020, the limited accessibility to the hygiene products was still an ongoing issue. Bruen hopes the university will completely service the program. “I think the reason we started

this in the first place is because we were filling a need that the university was not,” Bruen said. People still have to pay for these products on campus. The limited dispensers around the campus bathrooms require 25 cents per tampon or pad. Since the pandemic, many payments are now cashless, and SU has not made menstrual hygiene a priority for people on campus, Bruen said. Bruen said fall 2019 was the height of the program. At that time, Mackenzie Mertikas, a former president of SA, requested funds to ensure permanent dispensers were stocked around campus. “Things definitely changed from year to year. By the time, I was in my role (as president), and John Jankovic was also an assembly member … we relooked the

program and relooked at trying to get the menstrual products into the dispensers,” Mertikas said. Bruen said Mertikas was very adamant about pushing for the program. Due to the menstrual products not fitting into the dispensers, SA members brought caddies into different buildings across campus to freely distribute the products. Bruen, who formerly lived in Sadler Hall, brought the caddies into the bathrooms on his floor. SA members consistently refilled those containers until the spring of 2020, before the pandemic. “My position is that no one should pay. (Menstrual hygiene products) should be free. There should be no change. It should just be free,” Bruen said.


ESF ranked 9th in top 50 Green Colleges list By Richard Perrins

asst. news editor

The Princeton Review ranked SUNY-ESF ninth in its list of Top 50 Green Colleges for 2021. SUNY-ESF, which paid for the “featured” banner that appears in the ranking according to the Princeton Review, was judged on a combination of reported data and student opinion collected throughout the year via surveys. The Princeton Review invited nearly all four-year colleges and universities to participate in the surveys, a panel of experts in higher education green practices created, the review’s website said. The schools’ responses to the surveys gave the basis for a “Green Rating”, or a measure of a school’s performance as an environmentally aware institution, which the Princeton Review factored into the

ranking. The Princeton Review collected ratings from 835 colleges in total. Key elements of the surveys included the health and sustainability of campus quality of life, level of preparation for student employment in a clean-energy economy and environmental responsibility of a school’s policies, the website said. The rating was on a scale of 60-99, although this number was not published on the ranking of the schools. SUNY-ESF was joined by fellow upstate New York institution Cornell University in the top ten, while College of the Atlantic in Maine was judged to be the “greenest” of the surveyed schools. “We’re so proud of the work led by our faculty, students, and staff to address today’s most pressing environmental issues,” said Joanie Mahoney, president of SUNY-ESF, in a news release. “ESF continues

Syracuse University announced in a campus-wide email in July that flu vaccinations will be required to attend in-person classes and on-campus activities and facilities next semester. Staff at the Barnes Center at The Arch encouraged students to get their vaccines, overseeing the entire process. Students must upload proof of their vaccinations in their Patient Portal if they receive their flu shot from a provider outside of the university. “Students at the campus are (in contact on a) close basis, and it’s crucial to have a flu shot because you can put others at risk if you don’t get one,” said Nay Mayen, a flu vaccine support staff member in the Barnes Center. “A single person who isn’t vaccinated would make hundreds sick.” Mayen thinks the Barnes Center is doing a really good job with frequent reminders to students via email and putting signs and banners in locations on campus. “Flu is a contagious virus,” said Morel Anderson, a registered nurse who works in the Barnes Center. “(The) best way to prevent (the flu) is to get vaccinated.” Many students said they hope others get their vaccines as soon as possible before the deadline, especially to protect those around them. Sarah Rappoport, a freshman in the Newhouse School of Public Communications, said she makes sure to get the shot every year to prevent serious cases of the flu. “I’ve got flu before, and it was quite extreme. (But), I didn’t get hospitalized thanks to my shot”, Rappoport said. Baylee Smith, a freshman biology major, wanted all students to get vaccinated, saying it’s the only way to protect their fellow peers. Rahil Abbas, a public health major, agreed and urged students to get their shots before the deadline. Some students said they’re worried about getting sick with classes back in person, especially as there are very few virtual and remote options for students. “Disease prevention helps the entire SU community and our families, and it relieves stress on the health care system,” said Ryan Lamson, a master’s student at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs. “I got vaccinated, firstly because it’s a requirement by spring 2022 per SU policy. Secondly, as a student, I can’t have time to be sick. I would also encourage all eligible students to receive the vaccine to get it done. You’ll be better off, and we’re fortunate to have access to it.” Many universities, such as Johns Hopkins University, Georgetown University and the University of Miami, require an influenza see flu

voting sway the entire Syracuse mayoral election in a major way,which students aren’t taking advantage of at the moment, Brockway said. “The people right now that are taking advantage are older. They’re more economically well-off. They’re people like me, frankly, who have the time to do it,” Brockway said. “If students are concerned about social justice, and they can really throw their weight behind candidates in a way that’s extremely meaningful, the next mayor of Syracuse is going to pay attention to what SU students want.” Though Brockway said politics is accessible for students, the mayoral primaries in Syracuse were historically low. During the summer, a time when students weren’t on campus, only 14% of registered Syracuse Democrats and 9% of Republicans cast early or in-person ballots, according to’s election night coverage — the lowest turnout in 36 years. Just over 18,000 registered voters in Syracuse are not affiliated with a party, reported. Walsh is running as from page 1

The university spokesperson said that at least three administrators have reached out to SWSSU starting in September and as recently as Thursday, Oct. 28, and the university has not yet received a response.

an independent candidate. The mayoral election is not the only race on the ballot in Syracuse. All 17 seats of the Onondaga County Legislature are up for election, with a contested race in every seat, as well as a number of Syracuse Common Council seats and suburban municipal offices. SU’s chapter of College Republicans focused more on supporting specific candidates than registering students to vote this year, said Dustin Hall, the chapter’s president. Hall said that students at SU aren’t as engaged with local politics because they don’t have to live in and interact with the community on a permanent basis. As an alternative to voter registration efforts, College Republicans have been helping candidates who have a connection to SU or are in a hotly contested race. Specifically, College Republicans have been endorsing Danielle Fogel, a candidate for the New York State Supreme Court, and Rebecca Shiroff, who is running for Town of Manlius Town Board councilor. The average student doesn’t necessarily know that Manlius exists, let alone that an election is happening, Hall said. But the town

is only about 10 miles away from campus. “No matter where you go in life, you’re always going to be some sort of taxpayer,” Hall said. “Local politics are just as important (as national politics). That’s where that stuff gets done.” Fogel is competing with former Representative Anthony Brindisi, a Democrat, for the justice seat in the court’s Fifth Judicial District. Hall said Fogel’s time at SU’s College of Law — where she graduated in 2004 — gave her the experience and connection to the community needed for the job. Noah Estling, president of College Democrats, said the issue in voter turnout in the primaries this year could be because many SU students are disconnected from the community they live in. “The university is a system within itself,” Estling said. “Because of that, students don’t want or don’t care as much about trying to interact with the city.” But apathy isn’t the only way SU has a negative effect on the community, Estling said. Some of SU’s spending has perpetuated the gentrification of the area surrounding the university, which contributes to the difficulty

of having property for low-income community members, he said. In July, SU spent nearly $70 million to acquire The Marshall, an apartment complex that rises next to Marshall Street. The university plans to convert the building into student housing. Many SU students live in other apartment complexes near campus, including Theory Syracuse and The 505 on Walnut. It’s important for SU students to get involved in elections in which they have a vested interest, Brockway said. While students may not recognize the names on the ballot, Brockway said students should try to understand the issues at stake and how it may affect them both during their time at SU and for the future of the community. Five constitutional amendments are on the ballot this year, focusing on correcting issues in the state government in areas such as voting rights and environmental protection. Early voting for this year’s election began on Oct. 23 and ran through Oct. 31. Election day is Nov. 2, and polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.

concerns and recommendations.” Teams from the Office of Student Experience, Department of Public Safety, Title IX office and the Barnes Center at The Arch have reviewed the organization’s demands and are prepared to speak to SWSSU at any time, according to the spokesperson. “Our manifesto has been circulating for nearly a week now. The university has no excuse for their lack of (acknowledgement),” Linehan said. The university created SAET in Aug. 2020,

following the #NotAgainSU protests. The group was created with the goal of “supporting and facilitating student activism, including protests and demonstration and engaging with students to empower the free expression of ideas,” according to an SU news release. “We remain committed to continued productive and transparent dialogue with our university community on these issues,” the university spokesperson said. Former SA President Justine Hastings, who worked with SAET after the #NotAgainSU

protests, said at the time that the group refused to work with SAET, citing SU’s “complete unwillingness to care for and listen to Black students.” Hastings — who graduated in 2021 — was SAET’s only student member according to their website, and the group hasn’t updated their website with a current member list as of Oct. 31. Asst. news editor Kyle Chouinard contributed reporting to this story.

force upon others to get one,” said Ethan Cohen, a junior in the Martin J. Whitman School of Management. “If you think it’s the right thing to do, go for it.” SU announced in a campus-wide

email on Friday that it will extend vaccine appointments to Wednesday, allowing for more students to register and get their shots. Students are required to be vaccinated for the flu before the beginning of the

spring semester to attend in-person classes, participate in on-campus activities and use on-campus facilities unless they have an approved medical or religious exemption.

Pro-military agenda at SU makes students like me feel unsafe By Zainab Altuma (Almatwari) columnist

Editor’s note: This story contains details of violence and sexual harassment.


ttending Syracuse University has been the main reason I’ve failed at my mission to not be “that writer.” The “that writer” syndrome is known in the writing community — which I’ve become immersed in as a poet and multidisciplinary writer — as a boxing effect that limits a writer to one topic or one type of writing to the point where that’s the only thing they’re known for. Solely by living on campus, I’ve had to fit that premade mold because campus culture is often up in flames to the point that taking a break from introspective, analytical and serious writing isn’t a choice for people like me — the ones you can point out of a crowd and read their identities like a script. More often than not, people with intersectionalities and positionalities similar to mine or even more visibly so than myself, are conditioned to utilize every skill we have to survive. For this column, I had planned to write something on the lighter side. I wanted to step away from theory about institutional apathy or how I experienced a hate crime at Juice Jam because I am multifaceted and a lot more than what happens to me. I started writing not because of my marginalized identities, but because I loved taking a captured scene and turning it into a melodic, detailed and lively experience through my words and poetry. I started writing because I simply wanted to write and because I recognized the talent and poetry within me to garnish and host multidimensional universes that the average human’s imagination cannot even fathom yet alone tap into or create. Nonetheless, another day at SU means another topic to urgently address. In today’s column on “What Happened Now SU,” we’re tackling the pro-military rhetoric. The rhetoric is so evident that an SU student felt comfortable and protected enough to tell me on a social media app that he liked me because “It reminds (him) of shooting kids in Afghanistan. (He) was thinking (he) could shoot some kids in (me), so wassup?” There are uncountable things that are disturbing and necessary to unpack just within that statement and the mountains and rivers of pro-military agenda behind it.

Number one: I am not from Afghanistan.

The sardonic part of it all is that I’m not even from Afghanistan; I’m from Iraq. But it doesn’t matter, does it? Reduction of human life to nothing but merely collateral damage to achieve power expansion through the military industrial complex is exactly what America is built of. Especially after 9/11, America has actively and attentively conceptualized and structured lifelong wars and violence against Iraqis and Afghans globally. After all, to Americans, I am Iraqi in the nationality sense of the word, but I am a product of 9/11 before anything else. It doesn’t matter, not even as much as an extra pen at a final exam, that I’ve lived in Maine for five years. It doesn’t matter, not even as much as the second zip code when entering an address, that I’ve contributed to the 2020 election two months of volunteering, national speeches, articles and, above all, putting my life on pause to execute the above, which is generations more than what the most politically involved Americans are willing to sacrifice. It doesn’t matter whether I speak a different language than Afghans, have an ocean of difference i n c ulture o r that even our music sounds vastly heterogeneous. At the end of the day, we are nothing but the very thing that’s wrong with America. Not America’s colonial roots, not America’s constant celebration of murdering and erasing Indigenous lives, not America’s hunger for brutalizing Black lives, not America’s need for power by any means necessary. It’s none of the above. I, a college student listening to J. Cole and 21 Savage every morning, am the very thing wrong with America. At the end of the day, nothing matters but the 9 of their 11 as I live every day in defense of my humanity.

Number two: How is that remotely romantic?

I read a post recently on America’s romanticization of violence. That perpetuating and engaging in violence is one of the very things that keeps America alive. It is embedded in every part of the American lifestyle, even romance. Romanticized violence is everywhere. It’s on dating apps. In social settings. In the bedroom. It’s just as systemic as Greek life’s perpetuation of rape culture. The aforementioned text itself is an example of what romanticized violence entails. It is appalling, and very much so encouraged by American rhetoric. It is more than easily notable in how American media has perpetuated the Civil War and how the U.S. education system teaches us about

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been signed up for wars as a participant without my consent, giving me post-traumatic stress disorder. It is far from a wonderful sight having to walk amongst swarms of ROTC students as I’m trying to peacefully get food from the Schine Student Center. Living in constant emotional turmoil and

a visible sense of unsafety should be an eloquent reason as to how PTSD has gormandized my peace. Nonetheless, even within that, my PTSD feels unequal to that of American soldiers’, especially on this campus. During a meeting with one of the psychologists at Barnes Center at The Arch, the psychologist unhesitantly compared the intensity of my life with PTSD as someone with American war and military infiltrated childhood, shrapnels flying more often than birds, to that of ROTC students. Referring to her experience with soldiers as I am garnishing every sense of support I could utilize to better my life didn’t only channel every ounce of anger within me, but also was traumatic in itself. The comparison is also systemic. We see it in any conversation regarding war and PTSD from the American perspective. Troops, who have actively chosen to participate in the military industrial complex, are limned not only as the focal point of the conversation but also the ones deserving of empathy, even mine. If I set a cent aside for every time someone tried to play the two sides argument with me, telling me to consider that some of these soldiers are BIPOC or poor and by logical extension I should be more empathetic, then I’d have a million dollars saved up. When I am in a conversation with a mental health professional, I shouldn’t have to defend my trauma. I also shouldn’t have to explain why mentioning the very reason I live

America’s “adventures” abroad. It’s not foreign that the white, settler colonial state education system exhibits the war as a source of unity and yielding an opposing result to America’s racial dissonance. America’s prolonged engagement of the Appomattox myth deeply furthers the culture of romanticized violence. Flowery support of military bootlickers and not only “thanking them for their service,” but moralizing the work they do to “defend” America is present in American culture, especially since the 1990s. Posturing the military’s employment of soldiers’ bodies as nothing but killing machines under the wholesomeness of American patriotism in itself is humorous to anyone with critical thinking skills and even more so for someone like me, as I spent 13 years of my life amidst American-made and eternized violence. Americans keep violence alive in everything they do because it’s globally known that without violence America wouldn’t stand a chance at pretending to be a “world power.”

with lifelong agitation is unethical, inhumane and simply put, cruel. Mental health professionals, specifically those at SU, should know better.

Number four: No one should have to read that message.

I’ve been dispositioned to intellectualize my struggles in order for the world to categorize them as merely significant. Saying “That made me so angry” or “What the actual f***” in response to anything I experience isn’t enough for others. I don’t get to process it or simply live it and mourn another part of me and move on — I have to take it in as yet another thing to discuss and address. I have to dissect what’s wrong with it. I have to point out the parallels between it and systems of oppression. I have to place it in accordance with different positionalities, then create a call to action around it in order for that experience to trigger or mobilize any sort of empathy. And the best part of it all is that once you share that experience, then you’re viewed as nothing besides it. No one deserves to receive or read that text. That’s it. That should be enough. That should be the end. But here I am, writing another article “4 Your Eyez Only”so maybe this time you won’t be desensitized to my struggle. ​​Zainab Altuma (Almatwari) is a sophomore in the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs.

Rebecca Welton EEE 370 — Introduction to Entrepreneurship and Emerging Enterprises

Although Rebecca didn’t create the football club AFC Richmond on her own, she ran it once she took over ownership from her ex-husband with her creativity and leadership skills. “Introduction to Entrepreneurship and Emerging Enterprises” helps students learn what is required to start and grow a business.

WGS 201 — Global Feminisms

Ted Lasso

Rebecca Welton is Richmond’s girlboss antagonist, and to fully understand the complexities and nuance of her once diabolical, then aspirational, character arc, you should have an understanding of feminism in an international context. “Global Feminisms” explores how the school of thought moved across continents and political systems, something that can be applied to global media and film easily.

AAS 411 — The Music and Life of Prince

Ted Lasso is a walking encyclopedia of cultural references. Students learn a healthy dose about Prince and the cultural relevance of the music icon in Dr. James Williams’ class. Intend on leaving the class with a deeper appreciation for the impact Prince had on fashion and society, in addition to a Spotify playlist of his hit songs.

ENG 170 — American Cinema, from Beginnings to Present

FST 203 — Fine Pastries and Desserts

If Welton could fit this class into her busy schedule, she might consider taking it since Lasso bakes biscuits for her every day. In “Fine Pastries and Desserts,” students will learn the fundamentals of baking, finishing and plating parties and desserts.

If you want to fully understand every easter egg in Ted Lasso, taking this class is the first step in expanding your movie knowledge to a Lasso-level. This course not only examines movies from a historical lens, but it looks at the business of Hollywood and its influence on the art produced. After ENG 170, you, too, may be able to call yourself a “rom-communist.”

HST 357 — Culture and politics in Early Modern England: Henry VIII to Charles I

Before accepting the position at AFC Richmond — a British professional football club — Ted Lasso had never visited the U.K. If you also need to brush up on your British knowledge, this history class will cover one of the most influential periods in British history. Expect to learn about some men who are even wackier than Ted: medieval English kings.

Keeley Jones PRL 206 — Public Relations Principles & Practice

Think you have what it takes to maintain a brand’s image and use social media as flawlessly as Keeley Jones does? PRL 206 introduces students to the basics of public relations, including understanding social media trends and building communication between a company and the public.

AIC 102 — Arts in Context II

As a model-turned-boss businesswoman, Keeley Jones understands the different applications of the arts. She leverages her time in fashion and modeling in the field of sports as PR for the team in “Ted Lasso.” As is shown in this show, knowledge of the arts always comes in handy, and this class gives everyone, not just VPA students, a chance to learn about the arts.

Registration for next semester’s classes is quickly approaching like a pass from Sam Obisanya of “Ted Lasso.” The Culture Staff compiled a list of classes for next semester with a “Ted Lasso” twist.

Sam Obisanya AAS 341 — Politics of Africa

Along with Sam’s home country of Nigeria, the continent of Africa has been the victim of intrusion from other countries. This class touches on issues in Africa surrounding the decolonization of the continent, including political freedom, democracy and self rule.

ANT 185 — Global Encounters: Comparing World Views and Values Cross-Culturally

Sam is experiencing a hard time confronting culture shock and overcoming his homesickness. He also has put great efforts into opening a Nigerian restaurant. ANT 185, as a writing intensive as well as humanity course, will discuss unequal encounters about all kinds of culture globally and cases of commodity business.

Coach Beard FST 422 — Wine and Beer Appreciation

Coach Beard and Lasso often enjoy a beer together after matches. Students can step up their beer appreciation in one of the food studies program’s most popular classes. In the class, students can try beers from around the world, which they can continue to explore at Syracuse’s bars like Faegan’s Cafe & Pub and Wolff’s Biergarten.

PHI 171 — Critical Thinking

If you’re a deep thinker like Coach Beard, then “Critical Thinking” may be up your alley next semester. In PHI 171, students will study and evaluate reasoning, including arguments, explanations and the justification of decisions.

LIT 102 — Introduction to Classical Literature

If you know one thing about Coach Beard, you know he always has a book in hand. He and Lasso bond over reading, and that is something anyone could do too in this classical literature survey class. Through group reading and discussion, students can aim to be as well read as AFC Richmond’s football coach.

confused by the outcry of journalists everyTrent Crimm broke journalistic ethics by ource at the end of season two, you should ss. COM 337, a class in which Crimm could or two, is open to students with interest in ism and its ethics.

11 — Cross-Media News Writing

mm was known for taking his job as a jourlist very seriously. Students aspiring to into journalism must know how to write ross media platforms nowadays to make it the industry. In “Cross-Media News Writg,” students will learn and improve news lue, judgement and journalism ethics.

Dr. Sharon Fieldstone PSY 274 — Social Psychology

Impressed by Dr. Sharon Fieldstone’s ability to figure out what’s going on with others and help? Get your start in psychology with “Social Psychology” this spring. Students in PSY 274 study social relationships and interactions, so consider channeling your inner-Fieldstone and registering for PSY 274.

WGS 281 — Sociology of Families

Ted Lasso is a show about family and navigating family dynamics. But not all of those families are blood-related. Some, like AFC Richmond, are “found families,” and this class explores all forms of families and experiences across social, geographic and economic lines.

PHP 302 — Influencing Healthy Behavior

As part of Dr. Fieldstone’s work, she helps people identify and cultivate healthy behaviors and habits. Recognizing and maintaining healthy behaviors doesn’t take a job as a professional psychologist — students in PHP 302 learn about the factors that interact and encourage healthy behaviors.

Three SU students shared their stories about their family members who have had breast cancer and measures they take to minimize their own chance of getting cancer By Katie Hopsicker staff writer


ia Tammaro doesn’t smoke cigarettes or visit a tanning bed. Averi Kaplowitch meditates daily and avoids red meat. Lindsey Coby doesn’t vape and refrains from drinking excessively. All three Syracuse University students are affected by a common experience: the infestation of breast cancer in their families’ lives, whether it be their mother, grandmother or great-grandmother. Each woman said the illness has taught them to look at life in a different way, and they all said that their experiences made them realize that life is short and showed them the importance of taking preventative measures against cancer. Tammaro was in fourth grade when her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, and she was in sixth grade when her mother relapsed. As she grew older, Tammaro became anxious about the idea that one day she or her sister could develop the same disease, she said, as her great-grandmother had had breast cancer as well. “I remember not being super worried or scared for my mom because I was just still too young to really understand the severity of the situation,” Tammaro said. “As I got older I became hyper aware of my mom’s experience. … It consumed me.” Kaplowitch and Coby had similar anxieties and fears, after their grandmother and mother, respectively, each had breast cancer. They said they both became aware of the risks of mutated BRCA genes, which, if inherited, could increase their chances of getting breast cancer. Coby, an SU junior, said she recalled the sadness she felt when her mom — her best friend — was diagnosed on her 17th birthday. “I’ve never felt so heartbroken in my entire life,” Coby said. Kaplowitch, an SU senior, said that watching her grandmother battle cancer showed her the importance of family and cherishing each moment she had. She helped start a cancer awareness walk in her hometown called “Miles for Mary” to raise awareness about cancer. Kaplowitch learned she’d tested positive for the mutated BRCA1 gene just before the onset of the pandemic in 2020, and she said she has a team of doctors back home in Boston.

Kaplowitch, even at 21 years old, will soon start getting checkups and taking preventative measures, like getting regular mammograms. She also said that when it comes to your health, knowledge is power. While it’s scary to find out you may be more at risk of having cancer, Kaplowitch said that knowing her risk enabled her to make simple lifestyle changes, and that it’s important for more people to be aware. “Get tested (for the BRCA gene) just because it’s better to know and to be knowledgeable and have the facts and have the information,” she said. “That’s the only way you’re going to be able to protect yourself. Breast cancer awareness is more than just wearing pink, Coby said. Dealing with her mother’s battle with cancer altered the SU junior’s perspective, she said. She realized that life is too short not to live in the moment and take chances. For Coby, that meant moving in with her roommates, who are now her best friends, and even quitting her summer internship to work at a nonprofit. But she also warned that while living in the moment, everyone should live a healthy lifestyle to stay safe and prevent cancer. “A lot of kids have this mentality like, ‘We’re invincible, and nothing can touch us,’” Coby said. “We just don’t realize that things can change in an instant.” To help prevent the risk of cancer, people can develop simple and healthy lifestyle changes, like avoiding tanning beds, smoking and drinking soda, Tammaro said. She also stressed the importance of getting regular checkups and mammograms, and she said that simple changes often go underlooked. Tammaro also thinks it would be better for every woman, including those on SU’s campus, to get a comprehensive education about breast cancer, resources and preventative measures. “People say, ‘You can’t let this control your life,” and “Everything causes cancer today,’” Tammaro said. “But saying something like that carries so much more weight for people that have had a loved one who has battled cancer.” Tammaro said she knows many people at SU with stories like hers, people whose family has been affected by cancer or who have dealt with cancer personally. “It’s an identity that a lot of people take up at this school,” Tammaro said. “They know a survivor, they are a survivor. It’s something that’s a part of you and that’s your story.”

Syracuse comeback falls short in loss to Florida State By Cole Bambini staff writer

Florida State led 14-11 in the fifth set — Seminoles fans stood up, holding one finger in the air, signaling that one more point was needed to secure the set and the match. Syracuse outside hitter Polina Shemanova launched a crosscourt kill attempt from the left side, but it landed out of bounds, ending SU’s opportunity of completing a comeback when they were down two sets to none. Syracuse (15-9, 4-8 Atlantic Coast) fell in five sets to Florida State (16-5, 9-3 Atlantic Coast) on Sunday, losing its second straight match and its from page 12

roscoe Dixon said he felt Roscoe’s best chance at playing in college was as a defensive end. “I was really, crazy upset,” Roscoe said. “When he switched me off (from linebacker to defensive end), I said ‘No way.’ I felt like I thought he was messing up my future. I wasn’t gonna be able to go to college. I thought nobody was gonna pick me up.” But Dixon showed Roscoe his favorite moves, including a side-to-side “jab step move” which misdirected offensive linemen using a swim, rip or dip move to get space. Roscoe worked daily on his takeoff while focusing on where to look while attacking offensive lineman. He also took note of how deep quarterbacks dropped back, all because he “had to get to the quarterback.” “Cody would come off the ball and the offensive lineman wouldn’t know whether he was going inside or outside and man,” Dixon said. “Before you know it he’s in the back of your freaking head.” In his first season playing defensive end, Roscoe recorded 10 sacks in 10 games and earned first-team All-District honors. Then as a senior, Roscoe had 22 sacks — one of highest numbers in the state of Texas — and he was named first-team All-State. But the big colleges didn’t come. They saw Roscoe as not being tall enough or fast enough, Dixon said, and he wasn’t the “prototypical” defensive lineman. from page 12

boston college So Shrader pulled the ball back, kept it himself and sprinted for a 48-yard touchdown run. “It’s not just a Sean thing — he just draws a lot of attention but even Garrett you got to wonder is he going to keep it, is he gonna dump it? We don’t know what’s going on,” Harper said on Oct. 12. Babers emphasized that the read-option has been part of his offense since he arrived at SU, including with Tommy DeVito. Shrader said the scheme isn’t even a focal point of Syracuse’s practices “because we’re pretty good at it.” But regardless, the read-option has developed into one of the most successful parts of the Orange’s identity this season. They use it repeatedly to fuel the most efficient rushing attack in the conference. Shrader ranks fifth in the nation in rushing touchdowns (13), and Tucker leads the nation in rushing yards (1,267). All but two of SU’s 26 rushing touchdowns have come from the duo, and the only exceptions were during the season-opener at Ohio. Defenses have to honor Tucker’s potential to take any given carry for a touchdown, Harper said, comparing the situation to a talented defensive lineman who draws double-teams from the offensive linemen. So if defenses key on Tucker, SU can send him left, for example. That’ll lead linebackers “cheating left” in pursuit of Tucker, his father, Steve Tucker, said. That opens spaces for Shrader to run instead. “We’ve seen situations where the quarterback could literally just walk in the endzone, because (of) the dominance of what (Sean’s) done,” Steve said on Oct.11. “That’s

fourth straight on the road. Despite the defeat, middle blocker Marina Markova recorded a career-high 33 kills, the third-most in program history. Markova also recorded a .270 hitting percentage on 89 total attack attempts. The Orange recorded higher numbers than the Seminoles in several categories. SU recorded 74 total kills, 97 digs, 10 blocks and a collective .260 hitting percentage, while FSU recorded 72 kills, 83 digs, 5 blocks and a .207 hitting percentage. FSU had five players who scored double-digit kills, while Markova and Shemanova were the only ones who had more than 10 kills for the Orange. All of the sets were back and forth between the two teams. After dropping the first set, SU

had the opportunity to win the second set after leading 23-21, but a 4-0 run by the Seminoles ended the set and put the Orange behind by two sets. After winning the third set, Syracuse was faced with match point trailing 24-23, and they were out of timeouts in the fourth set. To set up a match point, Florida State blocked a SU kill attempt. Head coach Leonid Yelin, however, wanted to challenge the play. But he wasn’t challenging to overturn the call — he challenged to give his team another timeout and a chance to speak in the huddle. Since SU was successful on two previous challenges in the match, Yelin was able to use another timeout. As expected, the call was upheld, but Yelin still had the opportunity to

speak to his team in a free timeout. Coming out of the timeout, Markova notched a kill to tie the set. The next two points were kills from Shemanova and Abby Casiano, who finished SU’s 3-0 run to take the fourth set, keeping SU’s comeback chances alive. In the fifth set, SU was winning 9-5 at one point, but the Seminoles won 10 of the next 12 points to win the match. The two teams will face again in Syracuse on Nov. 14. SU finishes the back half of its four-game road trip in matchups against No. 4 Pittsburgh and Virginia. Syracuse defeated the Panthers twice last season, while its matchup against UVA was canceled last season.

Roscoe landed at McNeese State, and before his first game against Stephen F. Austin State University, Roscoe endured “the worst week of practice” in his career as McNeese State coaches helped him adjust to an elevated level of play. Roscoe responded with a strip sack, an interception and five tackles. “To this day, I feel like that was the best game I’ve ever had in my life,” Roscoe said. “I don’t feel like I can ever match that type of statline since I played that game.” Perez said Roscoe was on the field before practices and in between classes working on technique. Perez and Roscoe looked at recent games to “break down every inch,” Perez said. Then-McNeese State head coach Lance Guidry said Roscoe studied offensive linemen from opposing teams to see if they were late getting out of their stance to exploit them in the upcoming games. Roscoe also worked with Perez on extending his arms to gain separation against offensive lineman, Hebert said. He was constantly looking for more pass rush moves, Herbert said, and one included a “long arm” move where Roscoe would jab the offensive lineman with his arm to create separation for himself. Guidry said Roscoe worked closely with fellow defensive end Chris Livings. The two lineman stayed on the field to work on different ways of using their hands while rushing, how they could get offensive lineman’s hands off of them and how they could get through to the quarterback once the O-lineman “opened up the gate.”

“If you were working with them and you didn’t work, I mean you stood out like a sore thumb because (Roscoe and Livings) just got after it,” Hebert said. At first, Roscoe focused on getting to the quarterback for a sack, but McNeese State coaches told him they needed him to stop the run, too. Hebert worked with Roscoe on zone-read plays, where the quarterback either keeps the ball or hands it off to the running back based on what the defensive end does. Hebert and Roscoe would do an “eyes drill” so Roscoe could locate the ball. The two did the drill so many times that Roscoe was rarely confused by fakes, Hebert said. After the 2019 season, Roscoe transferred to Syracuse. Roscoe, in addition to adjusting to ACC competition after playing for three years in the FCS, had to adjust to SU’s 3-3-5 defense as he said that he had played in 4-2-5 schemes throughout his career. SU’s defense has a lot more stunts and crosses as opposed to playing in mostly one-on-one situations like he had in high school and at McNeese State, Roscoe said. When he played in a 4-2-5 in high school, Roscoe said he always stood up instead of starting in a three-point stance because it was more comfortable — it allowed him to see the whole field, along with the offense’s formations and shifts. But at Syracuse, Roscoe has rushed out of three- and four-point stances. Now in his second year, he said he’s learned the system. Roscoe also matched his body to the new defense, he said. Last year he thought he had to be “really heavy” to play in the 3-3-5 defense,

and was around 268 pounds — the heaviest he had ever been in his life, he said. “After the season I just told myself I didn’t wanna be at that point ever again,” Roscoe said. “I wanted to get back down to a comfortable weight that I feel like I can fly around and just be chaotic when I’m on the field.” Now, Roscoe said he is about 10 pounds lighter, and he’s changed his eating habits and focused more on flexibility. He worked with his trainer at home on single leg exercises so he could change directions quickly and become more explosive. The results have shown for Roscoe through nine games. Last year, he had just two sacks and 20 tackles in 11 games. This year, he already has 39 tackles and eight sacks. On Saturday against Boston College, he had one of his strongest games of the season, recording five tackles and splitting a sack with Kingsley Jonathan. When his mom told him that he was named a midseason All-American two weeks ago, Roscoe responded with, “What are you talking about?” The player who barely cracked the top-3,000 players in his class four years ago didn’t know the midseason honor existed. But now, it’s just another step on his road to proving he can be “as good as anybody in the country.” “I still have a lot to prove to myself and to the people that thought I couldn’t be here, so I still have a long way to go,” Roscoe said.

the whole benefit of an option offense, you can’t go after everything.” For Shrader and Tucker, a duo that’s only been playing together in-game for about a month, the natural chemistry has been instant. Tucker said they didn’t start practicing the read-option regularly until Shrader won the starting job in late September, though his dad said he always encouraged Tucker to work evenly with the No. 1 and No. 2 quarterbacks. The mesh-point — or exchange between the quarterback and running back — is very “delicate,” Babers explained. Shrader and Tucker need to understand the other’s body language to figure out whether Shrader wants Tuck to take the handoff by “clapping down on that ball” or if the quarterback “wants that ball to just go straight across the belly-button, and for them to operate something out the backdoor.” Essentially, the exchange has to be clean. And despite limited time working together, it has been. Neither has lost a fumble this year, and neither has bobbled or botched the quarterback-running back exchange. In high school, Tucker frequently ran the read-option. It was the predominant formation for Calvert Hall, Steve said, though Tucker typically lined up adjacent to the quarterback. SU used the same formation with DeVito at quarterback, but often places Tucker behind Shrader in a “pistol offense” now. Tucker has made a name for himself this season and is on-pace to shatter Syracuse’s single-season rushing record with three games remaining. As he continues to accumulate accolades, and continues to grow in popularity, that’ll key more defenses to shut him down.

And as a result, that’ll open up even more space for the other member of SU’s duo, Shrader. “It’s just too much for 11 guys,” Steve said. “It adds that extra level that’s going to open up the defense more.”

to… move!” Babers said, pausing briefly before shouting the final word into the microphone. The reporters in the room were startled, and Babers laughed. “You jumped. That’s five yards.”

The game was won when…

Game ball: Sean Tucker

Courtney Jackson’s punt return for a touchdown came after Syracuse scored seven points on back-to-back drives to open the third quarter. Jackson, the SU receiver who was filling in for the absent Trebor Pena, cut to his left on the punt return and took it 64 yards to the house. “Wow, I mean, what a momentum swing,” Babers said postgame. Jackson’s special teams play put SU up 21-6 in the third quarter, a scoreline that the Orange’s defense held for the remainder of the game. And for the first time in five weeks, Syracuse played in a game that wasn’t decided by a game-winning play in the final moments.

Quote of the night: Dino Babers on false starts

When asked about SU’s four false start penalties, all of which occurred in the first half, Babers said it was because Boston College was making “move calls” at the line of scrimmage and shifting its defensive line. SU hadn’t seen that on film during the week, so the Orange didn’t prepare for it, Babers said. Leaning forward as he spoke into the microphone in front of him, Babers explained to the media. “We didn’t see it, we didn’t practice it and right when our quarterback is about @csmith17_

Tucker deserves a game ball every week, so normally the idea is to choose someone else. But a career-high 207 yards rushing, including the touchdown run that ignited SU’s offense, means that the star running back earned this award fair and square. With three games left, he’s on pace to shatter Syracuse’s single-season rushing record.

Next up: Bye week

Syracuse needs to use its bye week to get healthy, Babers said. He joked that having a bye week in November felt like the fourth- or fifth-latest bye week in history. Saturday, SU was without fullback Chris Elmore, offensive lineman Carlos Vettorello, returner Trebor Pena and cornerback Adrian Cole. Cornerback Garrett Williams and lineman Chris Bleich both returned from injuries against BC, but for many other SU starters, it’s been nine straight weeks without rest, five of which included downto-the-wire games. “We had a bye week at the right time it feels like and we’re banged up but we’re gonna get back healthy and everything that we hope to accomplish in this season is right in front of us,” Shrader said. @roshan_f16

Syracuse ends regular season with 6-0 win against Cornell By Bryan Brush staff writer

Leading 3-0 with just over six minutes left in the fourth quarter, Syracuse was already on the way to ending its regular season with a win over Cornell. But the Orange didn’t just hold possession to see off the Big Red. Instead, SU tacked on three more goals in those final minutes. Freshman Olivia Bell scored the first goal of her college career to put the Orange up 4-0 with 5:16 left, lifting a cross from Willemjn Boogert over Cornell goalie Laura Kubit and into the back of the net. Then, Eefke van Nieuwenhof rocketed a shot from the top of the shooting circle to notch her second penalty corner goal of the day with just over three minutes left. And just 40 seconds later, Quiring Comans recorded her second goal of the day to put the Orange up 6-0, capping off SU’s statement win with postseason play on the horizon. “Relentless,” head coach Ange Bradley said about her team’s performance in the final minutes. The three goals in the final six minutes of regulation, along with a strong defensive performance, propelled No. 9 Syracuse (12-4, 4-2 Atlantic Coast) to a 6-0 victory over Cornell (8-8, 3-3 Ivy League). The Orange halted Cornell’s offensive mobility, and the Big Red couldn’t register a shot until the fourth quarter. SU also didn’t concede a single penalty corner across all four frames. With the victory, Syracuse avoided ending their regular season with a three-skid, with this game coming after the Orange lost their previous two games against ranked ACC opponents, No. 16 Virginia

and No. 5 Louisville. “I think we really needed this (win) to really connect well again,” midfielder Laura Graziosi said. At 12-4, Syracuse ends its 2021 regular season with its best record since 2016 when the Orange only lost two games before ACC and NCAA Tournament play. Now Syracuse is the No. 2 seed entering the ACC Tournament — which SU will host this year — and will face No. 6 seed Duke on Thursday in the quarterfinals. Before losses against Virginia and Louisville, the Orange boasted their longest winning streak since their national title-winning 2015 season. The victory over Cornell was reminiscent of their play throughout this stretch. SU’s offense outshot the Big Red 23-1 and earned eight penalty corners compared to Cornell’s zero. Syracuse consistently controlled possession throughout each quarter of play, with regular defensive starters Sienna Pegram, Nieuwenhof and SJ Quigley serving as the foundation for attacking moves. “They never really came into our defensive 25 (yard area),” Graziosi said postgame. Syracuse struggled offensively against Virginia and Louisville without forward Pleun Lammers, who has totalled eight goals and four assists in 2021 (20 points), but had no issues putting six past Cornell. SU showed variation in its penalty corner setups, which led to three of Syracuse’s six goals on Sunday. Comans opened the scoring for the Orange in the first quarter after directing a shot by van Nieuwenhof from the top left of the shooting circle into the goal. In the second half, van Nieuwenhof scored two goals from direct penalty corner shots, one of which came in the final six minutes of the

fourth quarter. “We’ve been working on things and made a couple of quick adjustments,” Bradley said about her team’s penalty corner plays. “Hopefully we can keep it rolling.” Comans’ first goal of the day was all that separated the two sides at halftime. But, Graziosi extended SU’s lead less than four minutes into the third quarter after finishing off an SU attack. Leading up to Graziosi’s goal, Comans spun past the defenders marking her in the

shooting circle and passed to Clara Morrison, who was waiting on the right edge of the shooting circle. Morrison fired a shot toward goal that was saved, but the ball spilled out from Kubit’s grasp and found its way to the path of Graziosi. Despite there being a defender between her and the goal, Graziosi managed to get the ball past the goalline. “I think we played pretty well today,” Bradley said. “We were in our lines and back to our old selves as a team.”

Path to the top How lightly recruited Cody Roscoe became a midseason All-American By Connor Smith

asst. sports editor


gainst Liberty with under four minutes left, defensive end Cody Roscoe forced Flames quarterback Malik Willis to step up in the pocket. With the offensive lineman distracted by a linebacker blitz, Roscoe found space, hit Willis from behind and slapped the quarterback’s throwing arm to jar the ball loose. Roscoe’s strip sack led to a game-winning field goal and SU’s third win of the year, but his process was the same as always: beat the offensive lineman and get to the quarterback. “On every snap, I’m gonna attack and go at you,” Roscoe said. “And I can feel like I can win against a guy. It’s not necessarily finesse or speed, it’s just a constant motor every snap.” Roscoe’s sack against Liberty was just one of his Atlantic

Coast Conference-leading eight this season. On Oct. 19, Roscoe was named an AP midseason All-American. But two years ago, before transferring to SU, Roscoe was playing in the Football Championship Series at McNeese State University in Louisiana. Out of high school, he was a lightlyrecruited, undersized defensive end — and an oversized linebacker — with no Football Bowl Subdivision offers. Roscoe grew from the No. 2,851-ranked recruit in his class into one of the nation’s top defensive ends. “I don’t think many guys saw him playing at Syracuse and being as productive as he is now,” said Carlos Perez, Roscoe’s defensive ends coach at McNeese State. When Perez first saw Roscoe at a high school showcase at Texas Southern University, his size didn’t “stick out,” he said. At 5-foot-11 and 236 pounds, Roscoe was built like a linebacker, but not quick enough to be a good one, McNeese State assistant Lark Hebert said. He lacked the arm length of most defensive ends, but his strength, motor and ability to “get off” at the line of scrimmage stood out, Perez said. When Perez first saw Roscoe after his sophomore year at Heights (Texas) High School, head coach Stephen Dixon had recently moved him from middle linebacker to defensive end. Dixon, a former defensive lineman, said he noticed whenever he sent Roscoe on linebacker blitzes, he showed a quick get off and had “natural instincts” as a pass rusher. see roscoe page 9


Inside the Tucker-Shrader read option, SU’s offense By Roshan Fernandez senior staff writer

Dino Babers calls the adjustment to a run-based offense that relies heavily on the legs of running back Sean Tucker and quarterback Garrett Shrader “chess not checkers.” “It’s a chess game where you’re just playing with your strongest pieces, and as your pieces change, your game should change,” Babers said on Oct. 18 after the Clemson loss. And a significant part of that shift has been the read-option offense,

which Syracuse has turned to since Shrader became the starter against Liberty, and continued to rely on in its win over Boston College on Saturday. The read-option involves Shrader reading the defense and electing whether to hand the ball off to Tucker, or keep it himself and run. If the two go in opposite directions, it’s a difficult situation for the defense to cover, ideally. On SU’s first touchdown run, Shrader’s eyes were on the unblocked BC defensive end when the quarterback decided to give Tucker the

ball. Tucker broke loose for a 51-yard score, igniting a previously-stagnant offensive outing. “If he gets going, good luck catching him,” said Dan Harper, Tucker’s position coach at Calvert Hall College (Maryland) High School. “And if you don’t know if he’s getting the ball or not, that makes it a huge problem.” Then on the next series, the two did the opposite. Shrader watched the defensive end quickly advance in the backfield to blow up Tucker, who was running from left to right. see boston
