By a 196-vote margin, Boris Gresely has been elected Student Association president for the 58th Session. It’s a position he will hold for a year and half because of code changes the student body also approved. “I can’t believe it’s happened,” Gresely said in an interview after the results were student ass o c i a t i o n announced. “It’s a shocking moment — it’s a surprise moment. I’ve election been waiting for this for so long, and finally, it’s here.” With 1,764 votes — or about 40 percent — Gresely and his running mate Daniela Lopez beat out two other candidates.

2013

Duane Ford and Nia Boles came in second with 1,568 votes, and Ivan Rosales and Simone Goldslager came in last with 896. There were 107 write-in votes. The 4,411 total votes cast is equivalent to a 31 percent turnout of the student body. This percentage surpasses the previous record, which was set last year. Gresely, a junior political science and policy studies major, announced his candidacy Sept. 23 and ran on the three-part platform of “reform, reconnect and redirect.” He promised, if elected, to make SA more accountable. His Thursday started out with praying in Hendricks Chapel and ended with him and about 10 supporters learning their campaign had been successful in a friend’s Copper Beech Commons apartment. Though, technically, they weren’t

there when the polls closed at 11:59 p.m. That’s because they were still out campaigning, finishing up at Boland, Brewster and Brockway halls just nine minutes prior. He got the call telling him he’d won at 12:33 a.m. Friday on Lopez’s phone. (His had been dead for hours.) Paulina Colon, a member on the Board of Elections and Membership, asked him to check if Lopez could help her with homework for PAF 101: “An Introduction to the Analysis of Public Policy.” “Oh my God, stop,” someone in the room mumbled. “Tell her to stop f*cking around,” another one of his supporters yelled out with a nervous laugh. The ruse kept going: “Who’s going to call us?” Gresely asked.

As a professor, Edward McClennen meant business. It was his “blazingly intense” character, “unwavering commitment” to intellectual rigor and passion for his work that gained him respect from the undergraduate and graduate students he taught, said

Samuel Gorovitz, a philosophy professor, who knew McClennen professionally for more than 25 years. McClennen, a former philosophy and political science professor in the College of Arts and Sciences, died on Nov. 2. He retired from Syracuse University earlier this year after teaching at the university since 2003. Throughout his

career, McClennen became recognized for his expertise in moral and political philosophy and in game theory, the study of strategic decision making in competitive situations. He was also highly respected for his work in decision theory and political philosophy, Gorovitz said. Though

The State University of New York Board of Trustees has appointed a new SUNY-ESF president, who will enter office on Jan. 2. SUNY Chancellor Nancy Zimpher announced at a Board of Trustees meeting on Friday that the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry’s new president will be Quentin Wheeler, who currently serves as the founding director of the International Institute for Species Exploration at Arizona State University. Wheeler was also the former dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at ASU. “We have met with Dr. Wheeler and we on the executive team have every confidence that he is an excellent leader for SUNY-ESF and will build on the great work already accomplished by that institution,” she said at the meeting in New York City, which was webcast online. The Board of Trustees quickly and unanimously motioned to appoint Wheeler. His salary will be $275,000 a year for his new position as ESF president. Wheeler is an entomologist specializing in beetles, who has previously worked in London’s Natural History Museum, the National Science Foundation and Cornell University. He received his bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees from Ohio State University.

Syverud to teach at law school By Alfred Ng Asst. News Editor

sam maller | asst. photo editor neil hueber, a Mello Velo bike shop employee, finishes making a delivery to Lawrinson Hall. The Mello Velo Cafe on Westcott recently started a delivery service with its employees, and will only make the deliveries by bicycle, regardless of the weather conditions.

Mello Velo cafe delivers menu items to SU area on bikes By Shannon Hazlitt Staff Writer

Neil Hueber isn’t like most deliverymen. Hueber works at Mello Velo, a combined bike shop and cafe on Westcott Street, and he always makes deliveries on his bike — no matter the weather. He plans to deliver throughout the winter, but isn’t concerned about the imminent snow. “I’m actually kind of excited for the winter,” Hueber said, “just to see people’s reactions when I show up in the middle of February when there is snow on the ground.” Mello Velo recently announced that it now offers free deliveries for all items in its cafe, which include sandwiches, salads, smoothies and a variety of coffee drinks. Everything from their espressos to their Americanos and lattes can be delivered, as long as the purchase is $10 or more. Delivery hours are from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturdays, according to the shop’s website. Steve Morris, one of the founding owners of Mello Velo, decided to start the delivery service to make more people aware of the bike shop and cafe. He also wanted to give his employees, including himself, more opportunities to indulge their love of biking. “We wanted to offer just another way for people to taste our food,” Morris said, “Plus we wanted to ride our

bikes more — that was actually a big part of it.” About 90 percent of those who have ordered delivery from Mello Velo are students, Morris said. They’ve also delivered to some people who have never been in the shop before. Mello Velo became better known in the area after being added to GrubHub, the online ordering website that includes many other restaurants in the SU area, said Oriana Brenzo, a part-time student at University College who prepares food in Mello Velo’s cafe. The busiest delivery days at Mello Velo usually include about 10 deliveries, Morris said. They will deliver to anyone within an area that stretches roughly from Interstate 81 to Crawford Avenue, which includes the Marshall Street area, all of South Campus and a portion of East Fayette Street. Hueber, one of the shop’s deliverymen, said Mello Velo uses insulated messenger bags to help keep items such as soups and paninis warm. He added that he has been using a pink lunchbox to carry food temporarily. Although they are using normal bikes for now, Morris said they will soon have special delivery bikes painted lime green to go with the color scheme of the shop. The new bikes will also feature built-in racks and insulated bags to keep food hot or cold, Morris said.

He said he hopes generator lights and the bright green color will help make employees doing bike deliveries more visible to cars since one of the few downsides of the delivery program is that it puts some employees more at risk. While delivering two smoothies on Friday, Morris said he almost got into an accident on Euclid when a car slammed on its brakes directly in front of him and another car. Katie Shif ley, a graduate public administrations student who got her bike from Mello Velo several years ago, said that she thinks the business is in a challenging position. “They are up against a city that

doesn’t fully support their efforts,” she said of the lack of safe bike lanes in Syracuse. Shifley created a petition urging the City of Syracuse to install designated bike lanes on Euclid Avenue that, if successful, she hopes will make bike deliveries safer for Mello Velo employees. For now, with the work and risks of biking in Syracuse, she said she thinks the minimum of $10 for a delivery is a fair amount. “I love Mello Velo’s alternative transportation system.” Shifley said. “Plus, most places, even pizza, have a minimum limit. Just find a friend and order with them.” smhazlit@syr.edu

Chancellor-designate Kent Syverud plans to also serve as a professor at Syracuse University after he arrives on campus. Syverud revealed that he will be both the university’s chancellor and a faculty member in the College of Law during Campbell Conversations, a radio show hosted every Sunday night by Grant Reeher, the director of the Campbell Public Affairs Institute. Syverud said he is looking to teach classes in various schools at SU so he can understand the students and their needs, including the School of Education. “I’ve found for my whole career that teaching students across a semester is the best way to really know what’s working and not working in the institution,” he said on the radio show. He said he isn’t certain when he’ll start teaching and doubts that he will teach in his first semester at SU, but he added that he has “never gone more than 12 weeks without teaching” in his entire career. Currently, Syverud teaches about negotiation at the law school at Washington University in St. Louis, where he also serves as dean. He discussed SU’s national ranking, and said he hoped to improve the College of Law as a faculty member. “I haven’t, again, studied Syracuse law school’s rankings, but there’s some real strengths in that law school and I’m really excited to help them get even better,” he said. Syverud also discussed other topics on the radio show, including SU’s undergraduate population size. He said he would look at whether the university had the proper infrastructure to provide a “great education” to a student body of SU’s size. He said the best way for him to understand that would be to familiarize himself with what faculty and students experience on a day-to-day basis. He also talked about the transition process, and said he has been visiting SU every month to learn to begin developing his vision for the university. He added that the timing of the transition made it particularly difficult because most transitions occur during the summer. But he said he felt it was better he would be taking the position in January because it would already give him a presence

La LUCHA responds to letter from SU College Republicans Dear College Republicans, La LUCHA would like to foremost thank you for fearless feedback regarding our Immigration Week flier. Your criticism showed passion, which we respect, but more importantly, it was the perfect example of selective learning — the very conviction that plagues most of our country. You see, in your endeavor to denounce the man that Che Guevara was, your criticism ironically made your argument as f lawed as it can be. For lack of a better term, you shot yourself in the leg for the entire Internet to see. According to psychologists, selective learning is the ability to select items from which to learn from while ignoring all others. You literally nitpicked a person in history, and removed all characteristics except the ones that support your opinion. In your letter to the editor you mention, “Che Guevara was an international terrorist and mass murderer.” But my friends, the same can be said for Christopher Columbus, yet I see no support from your organization to remove Columbus Day as a national holiday. If we wanted to display the same selective learning, as you so perfectly did, “terrorist and mass murderer” could describe most of the 44 U.S. presidents, or mostly any president, anywhere. Perhaps, if you’d like, we could paint Albert Einstein a terrorist as well for helping create the atomic bomb.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Would you mind if we also made Martin Luther King Jr. or John F. Kennedy as infamous adulterers? Steve Jobs a college dropout? La LUCHA, in no way, condones or supports violence. Nevertheless, in your criticism, you not only took away from the actual events that we were promoting, but you actually distorted history to your liking. That is not only an example of true ignorance, but it’s a disservice to yourselves to simply not know or address the multiple facets of any history lesson. La LUCHA’s purpose is not to defend Che Guevara’s crimes, which we acknowledge he had many. Rather, La LUCHA’s motivation is to educate individuals like yourselves of the history that was lost thanks to colonization, slavery, segregation, classism, poor public education systems and popular media. We promise to more cleverly select the figures that we quote only if you promise to judge those individuals from less biased point of views. We should collaborate on an event sometime in the future. “Above all, I would teach him to tell the truth. Truth-telling, I have found, is the key to responsible citizenship.” — J. Edgar Hover, beloved founder of the FBI, known racist and avid cross-dresser. (See, it’s not nice).

SYRACUSE UNIVERSIT Y

Syracuse should use Trap-NeuterReturn as solution to feral cat population Meg Callaghan makes several serious errors in her assessment of feral cats (“Callaghan: Solutions should soon be reached to ease feral cat issue facing city of Syracuse,” 11/12/2013). Attempting to remove cats from our neighborhoods has failed for more than a century. Cats have lived among us for hundreds of years and they are part of the American landscape. They lead healthy lives outdoors and live as long as house cats. They are not homeless; the outdoors is their home. When Callaghan calls for trapping cats as a “creative” solution, she fails to mention that virtually 100 percent of feral cats trapped by animal control are killed in shelters. As someone who graduated from Syracuse University and called Syracuse home for 25 years, I understand that the city needs to take steps to stabilize the population of feral cats. But catching and killing them is not the answer — for decades we have done that with no results.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR The only humane and effective program for managing feral cat colonies is Trap-NeuterReturn (TNR). Cats who undergo TNR are humanely trapped, neutered, vaccinated and returned to their outdoor homes. The population stabilizes immediately because there are no new kittens, and gradually decreases through natural attrition. Urban areas like New York City and Atlantic City and many others have implemented TNR with great success. More than 350 local governments across the country have also embraced TNR. This is a model program Syracuse would do well to adopt in order to create a safe community for its cats and a compassionate one for its residents.

SUNY-ESF president should enhance relationship with Syverud, SU to create legacy The new president of the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry has a lot to live up to. After a search process that lasted about a year, Quentin Wheeler will assume the role as president of ESF starting Jan. 2. His tenure will follow that of current President Cornelius Murphy, who accumulated a long list of accomplishments in his 13 years with ESF. During his time as president, Murphy improved the overall ranking of ESF, as well as the quantity and quality of ESF students. He also crafted a relationship with Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner and expanded ESF’s campus, despite a strain on the state budget. Most notably, though, Murphy broke barriers between Syracuse University and ESF by playing an integral role in allowing students from each school to take courses across campuses. To ensure an effective tenure,

EDITORIAL by the daily orange editorial board Wheeler should build off the initiatives Murphy has already started, specifically the physical expansion of ESF and its relationship with SU. The university’s future leader should consider the physical identity of ESF, which is exemplified by the several facilities that were built under Murphy, including the school’s first residence hall and the Gateway Center. These facilities have already allowed ESF to expand its research opportunities. Recently, ESF received a joint $2 million grant from the National Institute of Health to improve its biomedical research, proving its significance to the community beyond the Hill. By continuing to expand these facilities, the campus will create an identity and community to which

ESF students can belong. The relationship between ESF and SU is significant, and something Murphy has already worked to build. This relationship can be furthered by an alliance between the universities’ newest leaders: Wheeler and SU Chancellor-designate Kent Syverud. Wheeler begins his tenure at the same time as Syverud. As the two transition into their new roles this January, they could form a connection with each other and between their respective universities. A current example of the SU-ESF relationship is the cross listing of courses from each school. Wheeler and Syverud should work together to implement other efforts to connect the two campuses. Wheeler’s tenure follows Murphy’s highly successful one. But if Wheeler continues the momentum started by Murphy and creates a budding alliance with Syverud, he could leave his own lasting legacy.

‘Escape from Tomorrow’ proves poor example within modernist film genre

W

hen I first heard about the film “Escape from Tomorrow,” I couldn’t wait to see it. Unfortunately, my expectations for a groundbreaking experimental film were too high. Although conceptually important, “Escape from Tomorrow” is devoid of meaning and falls flat as a modernist film for film’s sake that does little to advance the craft of filmmaking. The film was shot guerilla style in both Disney World and Disneyland. The story itself revolves around a man, Jim, who loses his job during his family vacation and descends into madness. The viewer wonders if the plot is all really happening or if Jim’s imagination has gotten the best of him. The most amazing thing about this film is that it exists. This month it became available to wide audiences via Video on Demand. Unfortunately

though, “Escape from Tomorrow” is a missed opportunity to have made something far more impressive. When the film premiered at the 2013 Sundance film festival, the buzz wasn’t around the content of the work, but rather if it would ever see the light of day. Disney has historically been absolutely venomous about protecting its copyrights and holdings. Writer and director Randy Moore was diligent to avoid using the copyrighted songs and films that are signatory of so many of its attractions. Despite the hype about “Escape from Tomorrow,” people have shot controversial films in Disney Parks before. Moore could have looked to artists like Banksy and Mr. Brainwash, who shot a short there in 2010, as did Josh and Jeremiah Daws with the viral found footage short “Missing in the

living vicariously through you Mansion” in 2011. Both pieces are significantly better than Moore’s full-length feature. “Escape from Tomorrow” is disappointing because it lacks innovation. This film is credited as groundbreaking, yet it’s full of tropes and, overall, disjointed. The premise promises to be something like we’ve never seen before, but it is something we have seen before. Terror and the surreal juxtaposed with innocence and happiness have been done so many times before. After the first hour of the film, the excitement of being in Disney World

wears off, and the viewer is conscious that he or she has seen lots of films just like this. The characters — especially the villains — lack motivation and connection to one another. Sometimes it seems like the main enemy in this film is Disney, but too many antagonists with too many individual goals make it even harder to discern what this story is really about. We can be sure that Randy Moore takes issue with Disney and what the company represents, which is why he made this film. But this vision is executed in a narrow-minded way. He doesn’t attack corporate greed or Disney’s social issues. He just uses Jim’s grumpiness and detachment as the engines. It’s not enough. The idea of a cranky dad with a wandering eye, who is bummed out he’s at Disney World, is all that courses through the film. Moore

ignores the potential for a more fleshed out story. Modernist film offers plenty of examples that show that the genre is meant to be inventive and interesting. It forwards the craft of filmmaking. Moore is clearly reaching for something Fellini-esque, but falls short. You also can’t help but compare “Escape from Tomorrow” to the movie magic and innovations of Disney. This juxtaposition makes this film seem even duller. Ultimately, “Escape from Tomorrow” is a little bit like being in a theme park. You’re excited when you first get there, but after a little while, the magic wears off and you’re tired of walking around. Cassie-lee Grimaldi is a senior television, radio and film major.

Landscape architecture students win award for design to help plankton, algae By Leanna Kirschen

F

Staff Writer

our students in SUNY-ESF’s landscape architecture program received a national award in Boston on Saturday for their class project to increase the productivity of plants in the Hudson River. The award comes less than a month after U.S. News & World Report named the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry’s landscape architecture program as the 13th-best in the nation. The project, called “Primary Productivity in the Hudson River Estuary,” had ESF students trying to reduce the speed of water flow to better allow primary producers — like plankton and algae — to reproduce, said Gena Morgis, a fourth-year landscape architecture student and one of the students who received the award. The American Society of Landscape Architects judges student projects alongside the work of professional landscape architects for the national award, said Ben Boisclair, a fourth-year landscape architecture student. The project won the award in the research category and is being recognized as an innovation in estuary technology. The research category received the second largest number of submissions, Douglas Johnston, professor and chairman of the landscape architecture department, said in an email. They received more than 100 projects from both undergraduate and graduate students, which speaks highly to the students and professors, he said. The amount of work in the landscape architecture major can sometimes be overwhelming, Morgis, a student involved in the project, said. But many students are passionate about design

mcclennen from page 1

McClennen devoted a lot of his time to the rigorous quality of his work, he also mentored many students at both undergraduate and graduate levels who “were also on to do good work,” Gorovitz said. Before coming to SU, McClennen was a faculty member in the philosophy department at Washington University in St. Louis and then went to Bowling Green State University, Gorovitz said. He also spent part of his career at the London School of Economics, Gorovitz added. While visiting its philosophy department,

and dedicated to creating something meaningful, she added. Being a landscape architecture student is exciting, said Kevin Nagle, a fifth-year landscape architecture student. There are endless limits and applications of what landscape architecture students can pursue and achieve, he added. The department has received consistently high rankings, Nagle said. A lot of the success of the program can be attributed to how tight knit the landscape architecture community is, because of a mutual feeling that the students are “all fighting the same fight,” he said. “The rankings are kind of like bragging rights, but it’s nice to know that your small school can stand against others,” he said. Ariana Muca, a fifth-year landscape architecture student, said the major is special because it’s the only design-focused program at ESF. “The program is more like a job than a major. All of our classes are related to the major, so it’s like having a real job,” she said. The landscape architecture program at Cornell University consistently ranks close to ESF’s in the U.S. News & World Report. According to the rankings, Cornell and ESF have two of the three best landscape architecture programs in the east. The landscape architecture department at ESF differs from Cornell’s program, due to it focusing on environmental research, Morgis said. The relationship with Syracuse University provides the ESF landscape architecture program with resources and “allow us to push our boundaries,” she added. All accredited landscape architecture programs are guided by standards established by

universities and people in the profession, said Johnston, the professor and department chair in landscape architecture. But ESF offers offcampus programs and more interaction with the faculty, he added. Johnston feels that the surveys to determine the high rankings have limited validity because the criteria vary from year to year. The main purpose of the rankings is to sell maga-

zines, but many people still take them seriously, he said. Said Johnston: “However, to us, the high ranking reinforces what is well known by those within the university: the landscape architecture department at ESF is the premier program with outstanding students, faculty and alumni.”

Gorovitz said he met McClennen for the first time in St. Louis. Years later, he said he also saw him while McClennen was a consultant in the philosophy department at Bowling Green. McClennen lived in Albany, which Gorovitz said made it difficult for him to be a part of the community in a nonacademic sense. Gorovitz said McClennen was “very devoted” to his family, but was “conscientious” about his professional responsibilities. “He wasn’t in this community in the way that I would meet members of his family,” Gorovitz said. “When I was in his office talking with him about academic matters, he would be eager to make clear his interest in his family in Albany.” At times, McClennen’s commitment to his

work and intellectual, driven nature made him capable of being “irascible and volatile,” Gorovitz said. McClennen received several grants throughout his career, eventually helping draft a bill of rights for a new Libyan constitution. Gorovitz said McClennen was “really heartbroken” by the way events in Libya evolved because he had close connections with many progressive organizations in the country. In 2011, a Libyan civil war broke out because of widespread discontent with the country’s leader at the time, Moammar Gadhafi, who ruled Libya for more than 40 years. Shortly after the revolts moved to the Libyan capital of Tripoli, rebel forces captured and killed Gadhafi, placing the country into dem-

ocratic transition. “When that all came apart, it was a personal disappointment for him because he thought he was in a position to do some real good in the world through these activities,” Gorovitz said. He said McClennen’s frustration toward the events in Libya became more than just about the future of the country. Gorovitz added that though much of his research was theoretical and abstract, McClennen cared “very much” about his work’s practical applications and about making the world a better place. Said Gorovitz: “It is always sad whenever the university loses someone of great intellectual strength who is committed first and foremost to intellectual quality.”

After a while, his supporters didn’t know how to react. But after a few more minutes, Gresely learned it was the call. “Paulina, what are you trying to tell me right now?” Gresely said. “We won?” The room, for a moment, was absolutely silent. That’s until he repeated himself: “We won!” His supporters screamed. They immediately jumped up and hugged one another. The noise was so loud that apartment security kicked everyone out. The atmosphere in the living room was a drastically different a half hour before. The mood was somber and tense. His supporters — several wearing orange “Ask Me About Boris & Daniela” shirts — gathered in the apartment’s small, beige living room. Many stared at the ground, anxiously playing with their hands. “I literally can’t feel my legs I’m so nervous,” someone said shortly after they settled in.

First, Gresely gave a quick speech thanking all his supporters for all of their hard work. Then he asked each of them to reflect about the campaign. Iggy Nava spoke last and for the longest — almost five minutes off the cuff. He unsuccessfully ran for SA president last year and Gresely served as his campaign manager. Nava, a former columnist for The Daily Orange, said that after he lost last year, he felt defeated. He and Gresely drifted apart, though later grew close as friends again. Throughout Nava’s speech, Gresely, who wore one of his campaign shirts over a blue plaid shirt with rolled-up sleeves, looked down at the floor and smiled. Nava’s voice progressively became softer as he continued talking. “You guys have rekindled in me something that I lost a while ago,” Nava told the crowd. “Which is the desire to want to make a change.” After the initial excitement of the results died down, Gresely walked over to Nava. They embraced, and Gresely was pulled down to a knee in the moment. All of their work had paid off. dmsegelb@syr.edu

Duane Ford, Ivan Rosales come in 2nd, 3rd place; hope to create change at university By Alfred Ng and Brett Samuels The Daily Orange

Duane Ford said he’d be happy with the outcome of the Student Association election — win or lose. “If I win I’ll be happy because I know I’m going to do an amazing job, and if I lose I’ll be happy because I can finally get some sleep,” he said with a laugh. After the polls closed at midnight, Ivan Rosales and Simone Goldslager’s campaign team came in for a close huddle, congratulating each other. But after the results came in, the team huddled together again, this time with a much different tone.

Rosales had come in third place for the SA presidential race with 896 votes, losing to Boris Gresely, who received 1,764 votes. Duane Ford, the current vice president of SA, came in second place with 1,568 votes. When Rosales received the phone call, the room fell into a dead silence as he walked into a private room with Goldslager. With the call on speakerphone inside, Rosales replied, “Who won?” Although he was in another room, word spread quickly, with members of Rosales and Goldslager’s campaign team showing disappointment. “We did what we could. I stand by what I said. We killed it, we did an amazing job, I have

on campus as soon as possible. Said Syverud: “It’s hard starting in the middle of an academic year, but what would be even worse would be a very long interregnum, because during that period of time, you have all the responsibilities of the chancellor and none of the authority.”

“It’s an honor and a pleasure to accept this appointment. I really look forward to joining the fantastic community of faculty, students and staff at ESF and tapping into the power of SUNY to advance the diverse programs there,” he said. “I really think the 21st century will be defined, primarily by environmental issues and how society decides to

no regrets for everything that we did. And we’re going to keep pushing, you don’t need a position,” he said. Rosales, a junior accounting and policy studies major, joined SA during its 55th session, where he served as chair of the Student Life Committee, which he later resigned from. He said even though he was not elected, he’ll continue to push for the campus to pay more attention to hunger issues, and also use his connections with the Chancellor-designate Kent Syverud to improve the campus. Ford echoed that attitude, saying he would continue to work toward the goals he set during the campaign and while in SA. “I don’t care if I’m president or not, I’m going

I look forward to being part of crafting the solutions for New York State and the world.” In December, current president Cornelius Murphy announced that he would be stepping down at the end of this semester. The search process began more than a year ago, said the ESF Board of Trustees chair, Vita DeMarchi, at Wheeler’s appointment. She added that the ESF campus community became increasingly engaged in the search process as it continued,

Ford, a junior policy studies major, gathered in the apartment of Nia Boles, his running mate, with about 15 supporters who became emotional after Ford told them the news. However, Ford remained positive and encouraged others to do the same. “I think Boris will do a great job and I’m excited to see that,” he said. Rosales said he wishes Gresely good luck, and hopes he could handle the new term limits. “I think he has really great ideas, and I’ll be keeping updated and in touch with the three phases as it goes along,” he said. alng@syr.edu blsamuel@syr.edu

Art gallery opens in new venue By Margaret Lin STAFF WRITER

ixteen students hit the jackpot at Turning Stone Resort Casino, not from playing slot machines or black jack, but by singing. On Sunday, Syracuse University’s Groovestand was one of nine a cappella groups that competed in Turning Stone’s A Cappella Showdown. The participating collegiate singing groups represented different colleges and universities in Upstate New York, but Groovestand was the sole representation of SU’s a cappella community. After the judges heard all of the performances, Groovestand enthusiastically accepted second place and took home a check for $1,000. “I think we did really, really well, and at the beginning of the day I was getting a little nervous, because I was walking around the room and I could hear all the competition. I literally walked up to the group and was like, ‘Guys, you better be ready, because these guys are really, really good,’” said Janine McElhone, one of Groovestand’s co-music directors and a senior information management and technology major. Duelly Noted from Hamilton College took home the grand prize:

a check worth $2,500. This was the first time Duelly Noted had ever participated in a competition, McElhone said, and she was happy another deserving group took first place. Groovestand performed two numbers at Turning Stone, with original arrangements by members in the group. First they sang “I Care” by Beyoncé, arranged by senior Spanish and television, radio and film major Anthony Wright. Then the group did a mashup of Olly Murs’ “Troublemaker” with Britney Spears’ “(You Drive Me) Crazy,” which was arranged by McElhone. Performances were judged by the scores of three panellists, and the final 25 percent of the groups’ scores came from audience votes. Meghan Flaim, Groovestand’s president, said the three judges are professionals in the music and a cappella industry. According to the event’s Facebook page, the judges were: Mike Chin, who runs a blog called acappellablog.com; Johanna Vinson, best known for competing in NBC’s “The Sing-Off” in the all-female group Delilah; and local radio personality “Big Mike” Fiss. Jovany Javier, a contestant on season 10 of American Idol, hosted the evening. One of the newer members of the group, sophomore musical theater major Jon Paul Roby, said he was pleasantly surprised at how well Groovestand did. This was his first time performing with the group in a competition setting since joining last spring. He said Groovestand stands out and breaks the cookie-cutter mould of collegiate a cappella groups because of the members’ many bold, exciting

The voice of local soprano Catalina Cuervo soared through the air as she belted out songs from Syracuse Opera’s upcoming production “Maria de Buenos Aires” to a gallery full of Syracuse University students, faculty and members from the surrounding community. It was a fitting way to welcome the Point of Contact gallery to its new home. On Friday night, Point of Contact, a nonprofit contemporary art organization sponsored by Syracuse University, held an opening event at its new art gallery, located in the recently-renamed Nancy Cantor Warehouse. The event showcased the exhibition “Tango,” a 20-piece grand folio art book written by Pedro Cuperman, founder and editor of the Point of Contact Gallery and associate professor of Spanish in the College of Arts and Sciences at SU, featuring intaglio prints by late New York artist Nancy Graves. “They came up with the idea that they wanted to create artwork about tango and they went their separate ways,” said Miranda Traudt, Point of Contact’s managing director. “He wrote the text and then gave it to her. Then she created the series of prints, and now they’re side by side in a book.” The event attracted approximately 300 people, ranging from Syracuse students in various art departments and community members from Syracuse Tango, a local club of tango aficionados, to prominent members of the Syracuse faculty. Key attendees of the event included SU Interim Chancellor Eric Spina, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences George Langford and producing and artistic director of the Syracuse Opera Douglas Kinney Frost. Spina, Langford and Frost all gave speeches that expressed their excitement about the Point of Contact gallery’s new space. The event opened with Cuervo’s performance. Starring as the protagonist in the upcoming “Maria de Buenos Aires,” Cuervo was brought to the event as a collaboration between Point of Contact and Syracuse Opera. The show was composed by Astor Piazzolla and opens on Jan. 31. “It was spine-tingling, beautiful and exciting,” Traut said of Cuervo’s performance. The special “Tango” gallery will be on display until Dec. 19. Afterward, the next gallery, “Domestic Vicissitudes,” a video art exhibition from Argentinian artist Analia Segal, will

restart the Point of Contact’s normal exhibition schedule, Traudt said. They hope to have an additional three to four exhibitions within the upcoming year. The gallery’s new location on the ground level of the Warehouse, at 350 W. Fayette St., never changes its goals. The space provides a venue approximately three times larger than its old Genesee Street location. “We still have the same mission. We still want to bring in the same level of artists that we’ve always brought in and have very highcaliber artist exhibitions,” Traudt said. “But I think the new space is a lot larger than the old space, so it can allow us to bring in more performances like we saw tonight and collaborate with more organizations to do larger scale events.” In addition to Cuervo’s performance and the gallery itself, the event also featured a wine and small appetizers bar, provided a large red canvas wall for event attendees to sign their names on and hosted a raffle for a donated pair of Syracuse Opera tickets to help fundraise for the Point of Contact Gallery. The preparation for the event took approximately six months to plan and two months to execute with a newly hired staff. Shelby Zink, a junior industrial and interaction design major, is one of five parttime student employees at the gallery. Zink helped with graphic design work for the gallery, including a redesign of the Point of Contact logo and creation of the event’s brochures and invitations. “What’s been so great about this is that they really let me be hands on and have a really creative hand in all the graphic deci-

sions,” Zink said. “And this gallery itself is such a beautiful space. It’s nice, it’s modern and it’s exactly what Syracuse needs. It’s really nice to be connected to that.” While 200 people were predicted to attend the event, Traudt said that the larger number of attendees was nothing but a “happy surprise.” Traudt also expressed her excitement about the future of the Point of Contact gallery. “Right now we’re just hoping that people get to know what Point of Contact is and what we do and to build an audience that will come back for more events and exhibitions,” she said. One student in attendance was Aminah Ibrahim, a senior television, radio and film major, who said she wished more SU students would attend local, art-based events. Doing so would bring the SU community together by creating “an environment where it’s OK for lots of different types of people to come together and learn from each other and express themselves through art,” Ibrahim said. mglin@syr.edu

If you are planning to spend a serious chunk of your Thanksgiving Break in front of the television, your phone has a new way to change the experience. The recently released app Streambels makes it easy to wirelessly stream music and video from your Android mobile phone or tablet to any TV or speaker system connected to your local area network. While mobile streaming solutions have been around for years, Streambels is a nice option because of its simplicity and interoperability. You don’t have to pick between your favorite Apple or Google devices. Instead, get the best of both worlds by hooking up your Samsung Smart TV and AirPlay-enabled Bose speakers from one simple interface. The music and videostreaming app was created by Tuxera, a Finnish company best known for its multiplatform file systems software. Streambels is available for free, but after a five-day trial period, users have to start paying for certain features. The app allows users to stream from an Android phone or tablet to any AirPlay or DLNA

(Digital Living Network Alliance) enabled device. Those two standards are integrated with a wide swath of smart devices currently on the market, including Apple TV, Bose wireless speakers and wireless-enabled Samsung TVs. To stream from the app to a device on your local wireless network, open up Streambels and tap the device you want to access from the available devices listed. Pick the kind of media you want to stream from inside of the app, or stream directly from the app you want to share from, like YouTube, for example. If you want to customize the look of the app, Streambels offers a few different skins to choose from. The app’s biggest limitation deals with the media channels available for streaming. Streambels can play music and video played within the app or with supported media players — which at present only include Facebook Video and YouTube. But hopefully we will not have to wait long for expanded offerings; Streambels’ creators say they are working on bringing popular channels like Spotify, SoundCloud and 8tracks to the app in future updates. lggorman@syr.edu

Déjà food

Despite different menu, Alto Cinco spinoff proves too similar to original

L

By Nicole Fisher STAFF WRITER

ocated in a small space downtown, Otro Cinco is a madhouse. Lines consistently reach the door at the Alto Cinco spinoff. But if you can maneuver through the crowds, you can watch the food being made, and you can tell the cooks are having a good time. That shows in the food. The restaurant features classic dishes from the Alto Cinco menu, and a couple of new ones, like tacos made with non-GMO organic white corn tortillas, seafood tapas and made-to-order paella. Daily specials are also written on the chalkboard hung on the left wall when you first walk in. The mouthwatering dish was served over the counter to a different customer. I decided to order the mahimahi because fish tacos are one of my favorite dishes. While making my dish, the chef — clad in a fedora — threw fresh veggies into a frying pan, sizzling on impact. Next he walked to the cutting board and started to fillet a piece of mahimahi. After sprinkling some seasoning on it, he tossed the fish into another frying pan to begin a sauté. When he checked on the veggies and a large flame engulfed the food, a smile spread across his face. The fish was seasoned well, but cooked to the point where it fell apart. This made the taco — overloaded with toppings — hard to eat. Yet with spicy guacamole, fresh salsa and shredded cabbage, the dish was classic and like something I could find in my California hometown. Just make sure to have a glass of water nearby or ask for sour cream if you are a wimp like myself when it comes to spicy foods. Although this dish was very hot, others on the menu had a much more bland flavor. The crispy fried Tilapia fish tacos that my friend ordered, for example, featured pickled onions and similar toppings. But when biting into a section with no onions, the flavor was one-note and not too exciting. One dish that was new to the menu was the Sonora Quesadilla. With oozing, shredded Jack cheese and a crispy tortilla, the contrast of textures made for an interesting taste. The black beans, avocado and cabbage inside added a somewhat-nutritious element that contributed to a complex flavor. Served with sour cream and chipotle mayo, the dish was creamy and tasty overall.

keegan barber | staff photographer Otro Cinco serves new Spanish dishes in addition to the classic Mexican meals at Alto Cinco. Some of the new foods include mahi mahi, made-to-order paella and tacos made with non-GMO corn tortillas. While the slight menu changes — like added seafood — are intriguing, most of the dishes that students love can be found at Alto Cinco on Westcott Street for a similar price and at a much closer location. The spin-off restaurant is right off the Connective Corridor bus route and easily accessible, but the similarities didn’t motivate me to want to return to the new location. It might be a good option if you are already downtown for class at the Warehouse or shopping with some friends, but heading over to Otro Cinco only for lunch seems a little silly when you can take a short walk off campus to the flagship location. But if you are looking to try a couple of its new items, go ahead and visit downtown. Just try to avoid the lunchtime rush. nlfisher@syr.edu

Victoria’s Secret show balances sexy, classy attire

t’s hard to believe there is a fashion show devoted not to the latest clothing styles and trends, but exclusively to what is worn underneath your clothing, items that may never even see the light of day. And yet, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, which took place on Nov. 13 at the Lexington Avenue Armory in Manhattan and airs on CBS on Dec. 10, is an extravagant and slightly eccentric fashion tradition that attracts hundreds of thousands of viewers annually. Many people probably assume that the founder of Victoria’s Secret is a woman. While such an assumption is logical, it is also untrue. Roy Raymond founded Victoria’s Secret in 1977 as a result of the chagrin he felt when trying to purchase lingerie for his wife in department stores. Raymond’s goal was to create a place where men could feel comfortable purchasing lingerie for their wives, girlfriends and significant others. Victoria’s Secret is currently the largest American lingerie retailer and, if you’ve ever visited one of their stores, you know that Raymond met his goal, evidenced by the fact that both men and women can be seen milling around the hot pink aisles, picking out tulle teddies and pricing rhinestone bustiers with complete impunity. The first Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was held in 1995, and the event has since

never late but always fashionable become the lavish spectacle that it is today, complete with obscene amounts of glitter and bras worth $10 million. Often touted as the “sexiest show on earth,” this year’s show featured performances by Fall Out Boy and Taylor Swift. Given that Kanye West did not attend the show, Swift was able to perform sans any interruptions, but some still bristled at her presence due to her squeaky clean, “girl-next-door” persona not matching the sultry themes of the show. For her two performances, Swift wore a white cocktail dress with heavy beading and iridescent stones followed by a Union Jackthemed getup, complete with a tiny top hat. Swift’s ensembles complimented the equally luxurious pieces of lingerie the models wore, albeit in a much more conservative manner. Yes, Swift was nowhere near as scantily clad as the models. And yes, her image does not jive particularly well with the unabashedly sexy ideology of the Victoria’s Secret brand.

But I think it was in good taste not to have a performer who is too outrageously sensual (I’m looking at you Miley Cyrus). After all, there really is no place for twerking at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. There is a very fine line between what is sexy and what is simply in poor taste. And when a fashion show features nothing but nearly-naked women in angel wings, it’s imperative to remain on the right side of such a line. Otherwise the company may run the risk of making the fashion show less of a fun, fabulous spectacle, but instead a smutty, pornographic debacle. From the looks of the photos already posted online, it appears the show definitely stayed on the right side of the aforementioned line — and showcased some truly magnificent bras. Beautiful undergarments aside, it’s also refreshing to see confident models with actual facial expressions strut down the runway. Often in high fashion shows, enigmatic facial expressions are discouraged because they can detract attention from the garments themselves. This is less of a worry when there is very little clothing to showcase in the first place. Ultimately, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show has made intimate wear a public affair and shows just how progressive and open the fashion world has become. A mere 50 years ago, such a show could not be broadcast due to obscenity laws. Luckily, the world has changed, and we can now see London, France and very expensive underpants on TV.

personalities that come alive onstage. “It’s a whole different experience for competitions,” said Roby. “I mean, we’ve performed for crowds that are just as big, with Afterhours and everything, but it’s just very different when you are competing against different groups and you have to put your best foot forward, and it’s not just for entertainment value.” Since it was a competition, Roby said the groups did not get to interact with each other very much. They weren’t even allowed to view each other’s performances, since they had to be backstage for most of the show. As far as Groovestand’s winnings go, McElhone said she isn’t sure what they plan to do with the money just yet. They may use it to pay for future hotel fees, or may save the money for when they decide to put together a new CD. Meghan Flaim, a senior music industry major, said the audience seemed to enjoy the group’s performance, so she was pleased with the outcome. For instance, in competitive a cappella performances, she said that audiences are supposed to wait to applaud until after the group is done singing its set, remaining silent during song breaks. But the Turning Stone audience didn’t follow that rule for Groovestand. “They’re only supposed to clap at the end of our set, but they clapped in-between our songs,” Flaim said. Even so, she said the competitive atmosphere is something that the group needs to get used to before they compete in the International Championship of A Cappella next semester. klross01@syr.edu @kriskross22

It’s going to be a big game for both sides and we look forward to jumping ahead to that game as quick as possible.” So he didn’t actually piece together the four letters, but in the visiting press conference room at Doak Campbell Stadium, after a 59-3 loss to No. 2 Florida State (10-0, 8-0 ACC) of all times, he started talking about the mark his team needed to hit to qualify for a b*wl.

The winner of Saturday’s game with the Panthers qualifies for the postseason, and the Eagles have already reached the necessary six wins. Syracuse needed to win one of its last three, but it was always actually just one of its last two. So now it’s time to talk. “You have two games left to get one,” SU quarterback Terrel Hunt said. Wasn’t this always what it was going to come down to? The Orange was never going to cruise to eight or nine wins and it was never going to stumble to eight or nine losses. FSU was an obvious loss. There was no point talking about a bowl when it wasn’t going to happen for another week or two, anyway. And shouldn’t SU be able to get this done?

The loss to Florida State was ugly. That can’t be denied. Normally a loss by 56 points is a reason for plenty of four-letter words. Instead it was just the one. Jerome Smith darted from the SU locker room to the team bus in an unusually hurried manner. He played his worst game of the season during the beating, but in the locker room he had the future in mind. “The first thing he said was, ‘Hey, our goal is still in front of us,’” running backs coach DeAndre Smith said. “So I suspect he’ll come back and have the best two weeks of his career.” The Seminoles were simply way better. From the moment the horse ran onto the field before the game, that much was clear. So let’s listen to Hunt and “flush this one down the toilet.” Syracuse is already doing that.

There’s a long way to go for the Orange to contend at the highest level in the ACC — that’s the biggest thing Shafer took away from Saturday’s loss — but you don’t need to be a powerhouse winning 10 games to qualify for the postseason. Six wins are fine. Hunt brought a sense of realism to the press conference room after the loss. FSU was a chance to see where the highest bar is set. Now it’s about getting the victories against the even foes. Then maybe they can actually say that elusive four-letter word. “We want to be 2-0 in the next ones,” Hunt said.

field and dove to block Whigham. Meanwhile, Whitfield dashed into the end zone. Less than two minutes after their first touchdown, the Seminoles had a 14-0 lead. “Anything for our team to have success,” Winston said, “I’m down for it.” Shafer spoke during the week about toeing the line between getting fired up for a big game and being overly amped. In the opening minutes, the Orange crossed that line. Defensive tackle Jay Bromley didn’t blame “googly eyes” for the spectacle in Tallahassee,

Fla. Still, SU tried too many times to go for the big hit and missed too many tackles. In just seven offensive plays, FSU proved itself the offensive juggernaut the Syracuse coaching staff saw on film. “Any time you play a higher-rated team, you’re going to have a little bit of hype, and I think sometimes that happens,” SU defensive backs coach Fred Reed said. “That’s just human nature.” Florida State’s next drive was as quick as its first. Six plays took a Seminole running back — this time Freeman — into the end zone for a 4-yard touchdown. A three-and-out and muffed punt later, FSU had the ball back. Four plays after that, Winston had his first touchdown pass. Florida State went up 28-0. Reed called Winston as good as advertised. Shafer said the Seminoles were one of the best teams he’s seen in 23 years of coaching. SU quarterback Terrel Hunt admitted it: The Orange was beaten by a better team. “They earned what they got,” Bromley said. “It wasn’t like we were just busting coverages, for the most part, and they were just running f lat down the field scoring 80-yard touchdowns.” In the second quarter, Winston said, FSU started playing “a little unfocused.” After a 28-point first quarter, Florida State mustered just 10 in the second. But when the Seminoles did strike, they struck just as fast. This time it took seven plays before Winston threw his second touchdown. The quarterback

lofted a pass to the right corner of the end zone where only Kelvin Benjamin could grab it. The wide receiver leapt above Wayne Morgan and snatched the ball out of the air with his outstretched arms. There was nothing the defensive back could do. “You still can try to minimize the things,” Reed said. “We still want to do that, but they’re really good.” Winston left the game in the second half, but the Seminoles’ offense kept rolling. Wilder took another of his three carries right up the gut for a 37-yard touchdown. Backup quarterback Sean Maguire threw a touchdown. Running back Karlos Williams finished with 80 yards on four carries, despite not taking a single carry in the first half. Shafer now knows where the bar is set and where his team needs to get to compete at the highest level in the ACC. Shafer will now pull for FSU as it barrels its way toward the national championship game. “When we get our groove on,” Winston said, “it’s hard to stop us.” dbwilson@syr.edu @DBWilson2

But in his last two games, Cooney has shot a combined 1-of-9 from deep. “It definitely boosts your confidence a little bit knowing that you went out there and put out a big game like that,” Cooney said. “But I’m not going out there trying to break that record or anything like that. I’m just going out there to play hard.” Cooney will look to regain his shooting stroke on Monday when the Orange (3-0) hosts St. Francis (N.Y.) (2-1) at 7:30 p.m. in the Carrier Dome. The eight misses haven’t been the result of poor shot selection or desperation attempts with the shot clock winding down. They’ve been hard to work for — especially against the Raiders, who keyed in on Cooney with their 2-3 zone on Saturday — but mostly, the shots have just rimmed out.  “If I can get one or two more of those 3s

They are just two games early into a long season, but the shots he’s gotten have been relatively open. “My teammates found me in good spots,” Cooney said. “I just wasn’t able to get that roll.” Point guard Tyler Ennis said he makes a concerted effort to get Cooney the ball early in each game. Whether it’s a scoop pass in transition, working the inside-outside game down low or running a quick screen off an inbounds play, Ennis said he looks for him early and often. Against Colgate, Cooney back rimmed a 3 3:42 into regulation. Then he missed again from the right wing 2:04 later, but Raiders guard Damon Sherman-Newsome fell into him on his way down to draw a foul. “They’re keying in on him,” Ennis said. “I think as we go on and everybody else starts scoring a little more, it’ll open back up for him.” Cooney hasn’t lost any confidence in his outside shot. He’s missing, but he actually showed he’s improving his repertoire as a shooter on his lone make against Colgate. After catching a pass from Michael Gbinije on the right wing, Cooney pump-faked as a Raiders defender blew by. Then he took one dribble to his left and swished the 3.  “I’m taking it because defenses are flying out on me,” Cooney said. “If I just pump-fake I can make a better shot for myself or get in the lane and make a better shot for my team.” Individually, knocking down shots at a steady clip will provide consistency to

to fall for me, then maybe it’s an excellent game or a really good game for me,” Cooney said, “but I’ve just got to focus on taking good shots, keeping my shoulders square and knocking them down.” It’s the same problem that plagued Cooney last season. It’s why head coach Jim Boeheim limited arguably the Orange’s most skilled shooter to 11.2 minutes per game. “He didn’t play because he wasn’t making shots for the most part,” Boeheim said after SU’s exhibition win against Ryerson on Nov. 5. At about the time Boeheim said that, Cooney had shot 6-of-13 from range in preseason play. Three nights later, he dropped bombs against the Big Red as the descriptor that plagued Cooney throughout his first two years on campus — inconsistency — faded.  But his last two performances have brought

Cooney’s game, but on a larger scale, it may also be what SU needs to find its rhythm after three disjointed contests. “We still haven’t put two halves together,” Cooney said, “and it’s something we need to do because good teams do that, and we want to be a good team.” sebail01@syr.edu @Stephen_Bailey1

Syracuse full-court press keys decisive 15-0 1st-half stretch as Orange defeats Raiders By Stephen Bailey

T

ASST. SPORTS EDITOR

he momentum-shifting basket seemed inevitable, yet for most of the first half Syracuse couldn’t find it. Each time the 25,519 that packed into the Carrier Dome held its collective breath in celebratory preparation, the Orange disappointed. A Jerami Grant thunderous block turned into a missed transition 3-pointer. A Grant steal turned into a Tyler Ennis travel. Syracuse missed two of its first seven free throws as Colgate led 18-15 more than 10 minutes into regulation. Then the Orange extended its press. Four straight turnovers, and five total in a 1:29 span. The fourth, a Michael Gbinije steal, turned into a transition 3-pointer for C.J. Fair. The shot pushed SU’s lead to 27-18 with 6:47 to play and keyed a decisive 15-0 run. “We just really used our length and our speed to jump passes, try to pressure them, use our big bodies to kind of shield their vision so they couldn’t see the passing lanes,” Gbinije said. “And it worked.” Syracuse (3-0) staved off a pesky Colgate (0-2) squad 69-50 on Saturday. The Raiders hung around with the Orange until the midway point of the second half, but a pressure-filled 3:23 run in the opening stanza was the difference. Fair finished with 20 points and seven rebounds while Ennis added 12 points and Trevor Cooney 10, including five during the stretch. “We didn’t really get going like we wanted to,” Fair said. “We made strides, but the strides were just good enough to keep good distance. We didn’t really break out like we should have.” Initially, Syracuse did appear to be on its way to an easy victory. Two open Fair jumpers resulted in five points as the Raiders struggled to defend. But a 9-0 run capped by Murphy Burnatowski’s baseline jumper gave Colgate a four-point edge 5:18 into regulation. The Raiders big men succeeded in getting behind SU’s 2-3 zone, stretching the Orange wings and working the ball for open shots. “They really almost didn’t try to shoot inside,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said with a chuckle. “Their whole offense was to go in

and not shoot inside, and throw it out.” Pat Moore’s 3-pointer pushed Colgate’s lead to 12-7 with 13:37 left in the first half before 6-foot-11 center Ethan Jacobs and Damon Sherman-Newsome drained 3s to make it 18-15 4:14 later. But after Grant made two free throws to give SU a 19-18 lead with 7:54 to play, he bolted toward the end line and took his place at the top of SU’s 1-3-1 full-court press — face to face with Moore who was inbounding the ball. First, Grant took the ball from guard Chad Johnson one second into Colgate’s possession. Next, Cooney stripped Johnson and earned two free throws. Then, with nowhere to pass, Moore chucked a one-handed pass downcourt that safety Baye Moussa Keita picked off. Five seconds later, Cooney buried a wing 3. “I don’t know if many presses have a guy like Jerami at the top, but that makes it so much easier,” Cooney said. “He’s so long and athletic, and his length really bothers people when he gets up in them and makes it difficult.” Coming out of a Colgate timeout, Gbinije swiped a Sherman-Newsome pass and Fair drained his 3 at the other end. Three Gbinije free throws finished the Orange run. “Once we sped them up, I think that’s when we got a little momentum,” Fair said. Burnatowski made another 3 to pull the Raiders within 30-23, but two Ennis 3-pointers helped the Orange to a 36-26 halftime lead. Two Fair jumpers to open the second half pushed Syracuse’s lead to 40-26 and the Raiders would get no closer than 11 from there. It was far from a pretty performance for Syracuse. One that Ennis said “shows us that we’re not at that level yet.” But the Grant-led backcourt harassment — if only for that short period of time — won the game for SU. “We were able to speed them up a little bit and make them make tougher plays,” Cooney said. “We were able to get tips and get steals and get out in transition. That really helps us and helps a run.” sebail01@syr.edu @Stephen_Bailey1

FIELD HOCKEY

Michigan State shocks No. 2-seed Syracuse in NCAA tourney opener By Tyler Piccotti STAFF WRITER

Seniors Leonie Geyer, Laura Hahnefeldt and Anna Crumb all collapsed onto the turf at J.S. Coyne Stadium in disbelief once the final whistle sounded. After winning 36 games on their home field, they were forced to watch as their opponents ran off the bench in jubilant celebration following the 37th and most important contest. No. 2-seed Syracuse dominated the shot chart and time of possession, but trailed where it mattered most. A second-half goal by Kristin Matula carried Michigan State (14-9, 4-2 Big Ten) to a shocking 2-1 upset victory in the first round of the NCAA tournament and ended SU’s (16-4, 4-2 Atlantic Coast) 2013 season. “Our movement off the ball was not as strong as it usually is,” Orange head coach Ange Bradley said. “We kind of waited for things to happen instead of making things happen, and that was the story of the game.” The Spartans jumped on the board in the sixth minute when Abby Barker knocked home a pass from Allie Ahearn in front of the cage. Barker’s 18th goal of the season sent a jolt through the Spartan faithful that made the trip with the team and forced the Orange to be more aggressive offensively. SU made the necessary adjustments, but failed to capitalize on a number of glorious scoring chances. Lauren Brooks, Emma Russell

and Karlee Farr were all rejected by Spartans goalie Molly Cassidy during even-strength play, and Geyer missed on a penalty corner with 13 minutes remaining in the frame. Syracuse finally converted on a corner during the 29th minute. Geyer ripped a slap shot that was sent aside by a diving Cassidy. However, the ball popped right to Alyssa Manley, who easily poked home the rebound to even the score at one apiece. At the end of the first half, SU had outshot the Spartans by an astonishing 12-2 margin. By surviving the barrage, though, Michigan State had put itself in position to retake the lead at any moment. “Just because you’re a higher seed or supposed to be better than another team doesn’t mean they’re not going to come out and play you hard,” back Jordan Page said. “I think it’s important to realize that we have to go out and fight for everything we want and not let other teams take it away from us.” That’s what happened halfway through the second frame. Matula, a freshman that had scored only one goal prior to Saturday, picked up a ball misplayed by the Syracuse defense and dashed down the far side of the field. “I noticed that there was a slight gap between two defenders, and the ball went perfectly right through them,” Matula said. “I got the ball and looked up to see where the goalie was and did a pool right, like the coaches always tell us, and I put it in.”

jessica sheldon | staff photographer Members of the Syracuse field hockey team console a crying teammate after a 2-1 loss to Michigan State in the opening round of the NCAA tournament at home on Saturday. Down 2-1, the Orange continued to squander chances. Bradley even pulled goalie Jess Jecko with 4:28 remaining to create a two-man advantage, but the offense sputtered. A frantic push during the final minute produced no shots on goal, and the Spartans were able to clear the ball one final time as the closing seconds ticked away. Michigan State has now won six games in a row, including Wednesday’s play-in game to make the 16-team bracket, and will continue its improbable postseason run tomorrow

against either Boston College or Connecticut. Meanwhile, Syracuse’s home-field dominance came to an abrupt end, and the loss soured what had been a memorable first ACC season. “Right now we’re experiencing a death of a season and the ending of a team,” Bradley said. “Right now these kids need time to grieve and reflect on the good things and the bad things that happened on their journey together. “Come January, a new life will be born and that will be the start of the 2014 team.” tfpiccot@syr.edu

The F-bomb was the word of the day when Shafer called a certain Atlantic Coast Conference head coach a “motherf*cker.” “Ass” isn’t four letters, but he’s had no problem using that either. But there’s been one four-letter word strictly forbidden, at least publicly, by Syracuse. B-O-W-L. Everything is game by game and one day at a time. There’s never anything big picture and never any win counting. But with two games to go and the Orange’s toughest game behind it, Shafer’s ready to talk. “We’ve got two games left in the Dome and that’s key,” Shafer said. “We’ve got to get this Pitt outfit in

Explosive Florida State offense embarrasses Syracuse in blowout win By David Wilson

SPORTS EDITOR

ALLAHASSEE, Fla. — There wasn’t anything Syracuse could have done. It took all of six plays for Florida State to prove that. Devonta Freeman took a screen for 34 yards on the second play from scrimmage. Kenny Shaw took one 19

yards on the very next play. Jameis Winston hit Shaw on back-to-back plays for 13 and 9 yards. Finally, James Wilder Jr. capped the six-play, 77-yard drive with a 3-yard touchdown run just 2:31 into the game. “They’re as good as they’re supposed to look — and better,” said SU head coach Scott Shafer. “They look like an NFL team.”

The Seminole offense that features future NFL stars across the board, including the Heisman Trophy frontrunner Winston, dismantled an Orange defense that had allowed just three points in the previous two weeks with a 59-3 victory on Saturday. Winston threw for 277 yards and two touchdowns. Wilder added two scores on the ground.

Even No. 2 FSU’s (10-0, 8-0 Atlantic Coast) backups dazzled SU (5-5, 3-3) during the blowout in front of 74,491 at Doak Campbell Stadium. “They’ve got guys that don’t touch the field that were giants,” Shafer said. Just after that opening-drive score, Syracuse gave the ball right back. And even faster than that, Winston
