t the beginning of his freshman year, Ivan Rosales took the Myers-Briggs personality test. The results labeled him as an introvert. But when he took the same test again during the past summer, it labeled the current junior as the opposite: an extrovert. When coming to Syracuse University and not knowing anyone, Rosales said he pushed himself to get out of his comfort zone and meet new people. “I think that was a big change that made me be a lot more social and helped me by forcing me
s the Student Association vice president, Duane Ford has seen firsthand that being the leader of a large student organization is a thankless job. “I’ve seen the day-to-day ins and outs of being president, and I will tell you, it is not worth it,” he said, laughing. But the junior policy studies major said he’s running for SA president because he sees it as his duty to students who may be uncertain of their ability to change the university. “I think there’s a general apathy and fear to tackling these issues. Students see these initiatives
he Student Association presidential candidate Boris Gresely found his inspiration to be a leader from a few unlikely sources. “Superman and Batman definitely inspire me when it comes to wanting to do good and when it comes to leading an organization and leading the people,” Gresely said. “That’s what it really is for me is leading the people in the right direction.” Gresely, who said he has a large DC Comics collection that nobody is allowed to touch without his permission, sees his leadership style as including qualities of the two famous superheroes.

University senators predict that the goal of effectively reviewing Syracuse University’s procedures, policies and practices of promotions will not be completed before the end of the calendar year. At Wednesday’s University Senate meeting, S.P. Raj, a senator from the Ad-Hoc Committee on Promotions, proposed a campus-wide initiative on behalf of the committee to review the university’s promotion policies. Yet, many of the senators found the timeline of the proposal to be unrealistic. More than a year ago, the Board of Trustees’ Academic Affairs Committee raised concerns to Board of Trustees Chairman Richard Thompson about the university’s promotions process, specifically in terms of recruiting and retaining faculty. Thompson sent Cantor a letter asking her to develop an initiative to address these areas. At the meeting, Bruce Carter, senate moderator and chair of the Agenda Committee, said in a conversation with Thompson that the chairman hoped for the senate to present its recommendations by December. “The timeline is completely unrealistic,” said Eileen Schell, an associate professor of writing and rhetoric. “I appreciate that we’re going to take this to senate committees, but this is about faculty’s

College to relocate buildings By Margaret Lin staff writer
Students from the David B. Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics will soon be finding themselves in one central location, compared to the eight different buildings students currently use. Plans are moving forward for the Falk to move into the College of Law’s current buildings once the law school relocates to Dineen Hall.
“It’s very hard to get to, especially for freshmen and people who don’t have cars, so actually having offices on campus is going to be really nice.”

Near Westside Initiative unveils playground prototype By Zach Schweikert Staff Writer

The College of Law’s new location inside Dineen Hall is expected to be completed in 2014. Michele Barrett, Falk director of communications, said in an email that Syracuse University’s Office of Campus Planning, Design and Construction is currently working on plans to move Falk into the law school’s White and MacNaughton

As a way of revitalizing the impoverished areas of the city, the Near Westside Initiative unveiled a prototype of playground equipment on Wednesday with the hope that it will spark engagement and improve health among Near Westside residents. The prototype was the result of the winning entry of the “Movement on Main” contest. The design competition was created by Syracuse University in which landscape and architectural firms all over the
world competed for the best proposal to redesign the Near Westside neighborhood’s Wyoming Street. The goal of the prototype of the playground equipment is that it will provide a place for children to play with while fighting obesity and other weight-related conditions in the community. The prototype was displayed on Otisco Street and featured colorful rubber mounds, balancing boards and roundabouts with more equipment to come. “All of these mounds are orientated toward kids being able to
jump and play and interact,” said Maarten Jacobs, director of the Near Westside Initiative, saying the equipment promoted “exercise without seeming like exercise.” The community struggles with diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity, and the play area would be the first step in helping alleviate some of these problems, he added. Jacobs said the demonstration would help give the community a better idea of the plans for the street than the computer renderings on the Movement on Main website. “We can do all of those fancy ren-
derings,” he said, “But until you have something that you can touch and feel it didn’t really mean much.” STOSS, the Boston-based firm, designed the playground. The group was one of 16 firms in an international design contest, “Movement on Main,” and won after being picked among five semifinalists. A jury made up of residents, business owners, Syracuse and Onondaga County officials had chosen the design, Jacobs said. Scott Bishop, a landscape architect at STOSS, said the firm worked

Interactive app arrives on SU campus to promote anonymous dating By Claire Moran Contributing Writer
A team of entrepreneurial app creators is trying to help Syracuse University students meet more of their classmates with a new dating app called SmileBack. Dan Berenholz, Venkat Dinavahi, Doron Berenholz and Roy Goldschmidt launched the app — similar to Tinder — that allows users to send an anonymous “smile” to another user on their campus. When someone receives a smile, the receiver
chooses between five photos. If the receiver chooses the sender, the two become a “match,” earn a free drink at a local bar and may begin messaging on the app. “You’ll go through your four years in college and you’re not going to have the opportunity to meet even a fraction of those people,” Dan Berenholz said. “You’re going to have a lot of missed connections with people you might have otherwise have wanted to meet.” Dan Berenholz said he believes
that SmileBack can offer this opportunity to students. He said SmileBack is set apart by the fact that it is interactive, almost like a game. He said other dating apps like Tinder only allow users to be involved more passively. He added that the free drinks will be provided at some of the bars closest to the SU campus, although no final decisions have been made. The app doesn’t currently offer a meet-up option for those under 21, but Dan Berenholz said it might be a
future development. While the team is still trying to reach out to students below the legal drinking age, Dan Berenholz said he thinks they can still enjoy the app without partaking in the free drinks. SmileBack has already been launched at a number of other universities including Columbia University, the University of Virginia and Binghamton University. To market the new app, Dan Berenholz reached out through a number

‘Horganing’ reflects shifting trend in advertising methods
n the world of advertising, two common principles about social media have always been enforced: Social media is connecting people closer than ever and it is crucial for any advertising strategy. Ironically, I saw no better evidence of these statements than when watching the events of the American League Championship Series game two unfold in Boston. As the bullpen cop Steve Horgan watched the outstretched glove of Torii Hunter narrowly miss catching David Ortiz’s game tying grand slam, he reacted the same way everyone else in Fenway did: He put his hands up in triumph and went nuts because the Red Sox had just tied the game. What Horgan could not have guessed is that this pose would become a social media sensation overnight. After Ortiz’s grand slam, it took less than two innings for Horgan to transform from a 27-year Boston Police Department veteran into a new celebrity. The video went viral, memes were made and the hash tag “Horganing” referring to his famous pose was created on Twitter. After the game, Horgan even got his picture taken with Red Sox owner John Henry. Then, when closer Koji Uehara delivered the final out to clinch the World Series, the Red Sox, along with Steve Horgan, ran out on the field to celebrate their first World Series win at home since 1918. As I saw Horgan popping bottles with the team, it was hard not to wonder how this man’s life had changed so quickly.
br am berkowitz
digitally affected Would this man have been famous without social media? My guess is probably not. But that is what is so great about social media. It can develop and spread a very miniscule idea. After all, social media took one man out of the 37,400 fans at Fenway and put him on a worldwide pedestal. This power of social media is one that some of the biggest agencies and brands in the country are starting to embrace. They love it because the public essentially tells advertisers exactly what they like at the exact time it happens. With the fans putting such enthusiasm and excitement behind the “Horganing” trend, Gillete has decided to take advantage of this phenomenon and integrate it into its advertising. On Monday, David Ortiz, Shane Victorino and Steve Horgan, along with one lucky fan, will go into the Gillette World Shaving Headquarters lobby and shave their iconic beards, which they had been growing out since the start of the playoffs. With this move, Gillette is able to release a brand new promotion that already has popular-
ity and a huge following. “Horganing” is not the first pose to be turned into a phenomenon by the public and media. First there was “Tebowing,” the pose made famous by Tim Tebow that involves getting on one knee and holding your hand to your head. Then there was “Dufnering,” coined by PGA Tour player Jason Dufner, which essentially involves sitting on your butt and looking bored. All of these poses started as nothing more than a habit or a celebration. For whatever reason, people found them amusing and they took off on social media and eventually were turned into promotions. The main difference with these promotions/advertisements is that they have to be developed quickly. Advertisers do not have weeks to go through a process — they have days. The key to turning popular trends into advertisements is acting on them and releasing them before people forget. While ad agencies have only just started to recognize the correlation between current trends and advertising, I have no doubt that this relationship will continue to increase, as it provides agencies with easy access to primary research. With this growing practice, whether it’s “Tebowing,” “Dufnering” or “Horganing,” you can expect to see a lot more of your humor and personality become commercial sensations.

Vera House connection to SU should enable students to confront domestic, sexual violence Before Vera House can encourage students to help prevent sexual and domestic violence, the Syracusebased organization should help them understand the significance and prevalence of these acts on a college campus. In Vera House’s 24th annual report, statistics show that domestic and sexual violence remains a serious concern in the city of Syracuse and Onondaga County. There has been an increase in calls, according to recent statistics. There were 18,329 domestic violence calls and 832 sex offense calls answered by the Syracuse Police Department and Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office in 2012. Fortunately, in its goal sheet for 2013-14, Vera House shared plans to assist local school districts and colleges like Syracuse University in increasing awareness about sexual
editorial by the daily orange editorial board and domestic violence. By creating such a connection with local colleges and SU, Vera House has the potential to end or prevent violent behaviors from forming early on. The connection between Vera House and college students is critical because it helps students become more aware of this violence. Before these students can advocate for the prevention of domestic and sexual violence, they need to become better versed on the topic. Then they will feel confident in their abilities to promote change. Unfortunately, students often misperceive the prevalence of this type of violence because it is not often publicized by victims and their
assailants. Upon learning about these issues, students might feel intimidated by their severity. These are problems that many students likely think they are unable to face. Domestic and sexual violence is a mature issue that students might think they are unable to prevent. This is why the connection to Vera House is imperative. Students need to become more aware and informed before they can reverse the increase in domestic and sexual violence, and partner with initiatives like the White Ribbon Campaign, the 12 Men Model or the Mentors in Violence Prevention Program offered by Vera House. Vera House should be applauded for its efforts to face the recent increase in domestic and sexual violence. Now students must educate themselves so they can realize their power to prevent such acts.

Greek-minded SA leadership could prove beneficial for organization, university
he Student Association presidential race has gone greek. Next week, Syracuse University students will select their preferred president and vice presidential duo to lead SA starting in 2014. But regardless of which team is chosen, at least a single member of SU’s greek community will ascend to one of the organization’s top positions. For the non-greek like myself, this situation may seem far less than ideal. Stereotypes about collegiate greek lifestyles tell those on the outside that being greek is about wildly themed parties and hoodies donning blocked letters across the chest. When thinking about this demographic, leading the most vital student organization is not a characteristic that quickly comes to mind. But in meeting this year’s presidential race contenders, I found there is more to greek life than typical labels suggest. In fact, having a greekminded president can actually benefit the student body.

In November 2011, Dylan Lustig was elected the first greek president in approximately 10 years. Allie Curtis followed suit, becoming SA’s leader of the 57th session while identifying as a Kappa Kappa Gamma sister. The greek community plays no set role in the election each year, as a fluctuation of greek involvement is evident from one session to the next, Curtis said. This season, greek life is having the most advantageous effect on the SA presidential election yet. The presence of at least one greek candidate on each team means greek electors will be forced to choose a candidate on more substantial qualities than their greek identifier. Like Lustig, presidential candidates Duane Ford and Boris Gresely are brothers of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity. The fraternity rallied strongly behind Lustig in his campaign, but is now staying away from publicized endorsements between the brothers. Ford and Gresely’s mutual

campus watchdog decision to not involve the fraternity was the correct choice. Vice presidential candidates Simone Goldslager — running with presidential contender Ivan Rosales — and Daniela Lopez — aligning with Gresely — are members of Alpha Phi and Sigma Delta Tau, respectively. It is clearly impossible for the greek community to back one team with a clear majority simply because of a candidate’s greek status, therefore forcing more of SU’s student body to become aware of the actual issues. Rosales said greek students are now becoming more involved in campus politics. The Interfraternity Council recently hosted a debate to encourage more students

to become informed. “Greek life wants the best from SA, because when push comes to shove, they are beginning to learn what SA can do to help and support them,” Lustig said. Because each pairing is aware of greek issues on campus, all three have plans for addressing these concerns if elected and are universally identifying the community’s issues in the campaign process. Ford said it is essential to bridge the gap between the greek and non-greek communities and also between greek students and the administration. The university has stereotypes about greek partying priorities and campus media tends to capture greek life in a negative light, Ford argued. He said greek students are at fault by isolating themselves with fellow greeks, which allows the trench to widen. This disconnect is captured in the attendance of greek-sponsored philanthropy events, which the candi-

dates contended only greek students usually attend. Gresely identified this as a component of SU’s self-segregation issue — a problem both he and opponent Rosales have promoted concrete plans to address through leader summits and town hall meetings, respectively. The involvement of greeks in student government has its advantages that the candidates need to utilize, including social, philanthropic and leadership connections to promote important, achievable ideas for revamping a student government in need of a new direction. But, it is also imperative that the next team of SA leaders puts the organization before their greek houses. And for the non-greek, don’t fret about representation. The Greeks invented democracy.

Blocked party Boston officials implement heavy restrictions after injury at MIT By Maggie Cregan
Asst. News Editor
arties have effectively been banned at a majority of Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s greek life houses and independent living groups. Boston officials banned MIT fraternities, sororities and independent living groups from having parties that exceed each house’s maximum occupancy limit. This means that none of the affected houses can host a group larger than the number of people allowed to live there. The temporary restrictions could become permanent, according to an email from MIT campus officials to greek life and independent living representatives. But not all MIT fraternities and sororities will be affected by the ban. While some MIT greek life houses are located in Boston, others are located in Cambridge, Mass., along with the school itself. The Tech, MIT’s student newspaper, reported on Oct. 22 the party restrictions would affect 19 of the university’s 27 fraternities, three of the six sororities and two of the six independent living groups. The restrictions came a month after an MIT student fell through a plexiglass skylight down a four-story stairwell at the university’s Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity house. The 18-year-old did not suffer life-threatening injuries and was taken to Brigham and Women’s Hospital at about midnight on Sept. 11. Witnesses told police the student had been jumping on the skylight, according to a Sept. 12 Boston Globe article. The skylight and the roof deck had apparently been constructed without a permit and the fraternity was cited
for the unsafe roof deck and alcohol violations at the party. Though Boston’s ban will only affect some of MIT’s student houses, the university has imposed temporary restrictions on its other greek and independent student houses limiting parties to three times the occupancy limit, according to an Oct. 23 article in The Boston Globe. USA Today reported that, while some students are indifferent to the ban — or even glad not to have their sleep disrupted by loud parties — others are upset about the consequences to MIT’s social scene, according to an Oct. 31 article. “It strikes me as a decision that was made hastily and without seriously thinking through the implications,” MIT sophomore Alec Heifetz said in an email to USA Today. “It’s having a huge impact.” Heifetz is a member of the Alpha Delta Phi fraternity located in Cambridge. Henry Humphreys, senior associate dean for residential life and dining, said in a statement to The Tech that the university’s concerns about large parties are due to a number of student living issues rather than any single incident. He said residential life and dining and the Association of Independent Living Groups are planning to have all 39 fraternity, sorority and independent student group houses reviewed in a process that could last until December. This is when the city can begin its own review of the house plans and issue new certificates. At that time, the houses’ assembly occupancy limits will be revised. firstname.lastname@example.org

to be in that situation,” said Rosales, a junior accounting and policy studies major and Student Association presidential candidate. “You have to make friends or literally you’ll be alone.” Now Rosales’ skill of connecting with and listening to students is the basis for his platform for SA president. Rosales said the three main pillars of his platform — academic excellence, student engagement and diversity — are issues that students genuinely care about. This idea is seen throughout his campaign, including using the Twitter hashtag, “#sYOU.” “It’s ultimately about you as a student and
that’s what we want to focus on,” he said. Rosales became a part of SA during the 55th Session. He served as chair of the Student Life Committee during the first part of the current session, but later resigned. Last semester, the Board of Elections and Membership investigated him for leaking information to The Daily Orange anonymously in March. He later apologized for his actions. Simone Goldslager, a junior advertising major, became friends with Rosales during their freshman year after meeting through OrangeSeeds, a first-year leadership empowerment program. She said she found Rosales very quiet and timid, but saw that change after he joined OrangeSeeds and SA. Now Rosales’ running mate, Goldslager said SA helped Rosales become a “true leader.”
PJ Alampi, a senior film major, has seen Rosales’ personality change since the two met when Rosales applied to be part of SA. “He was very shy,” he said. “Now he’s the most out-there, tell-you-how-it-is, forward person you’ll ever meet.” Despite Rosales being rather introverted, Alampi said he could see right off the bat that Rosales was interested working for and with the students. “He was very much interested in working on very large-scale initiatives that affected the general interest of the student body,” he said. “It wasn’t much about just trying to do things for himself, but really affect the general populous of the campus.” Alampi was also on the Chancellor Search Committee with Rosales and witnessed how focused he was on representing the students’ voices. He added that Rosales displayed both diversity and intelligence while the two were working together on the committee. Alampi and Goldslager said they weren’t surprised by Rosales’ announcement of his candidacy for SA president after witnessing his growth in confidence and leadership. In fact, Goldslager said she was more surprised when Rosales asked her to be his vice president. “I literally had the butterf lies,” she said. “I had tingles up my arms.” Goldslager is not currently involved in SA, which she said plays into Rosales’ goal to bring SA’s focus back to SU students. Jorge Talamantes, Rosales’ friend and roommate, said Rosales is always there as a friend despite his busy schedule and many commitments. “He’s a great roommate,” said Talamantes, a junior psychology and political science major. “Even the small things, like when I’m running low on groceries, I come home and
I find my favorite box of vegetarian chicken nuggets. He’s always looking out.” Former SA president Dylan Lustig said Rosales is a “very real person,” which he said he finds rare in SA politics. “Sometimes it’s hard to see past someone’s ambition to become a leader in the organization,” he said. “With Ivan, he’ll stop you, he’ll ask you about your day and see what’s going on with you, he’ll poke jokes at you, but in the friendliest of ways.” email@example.com
ivan rosales’ Platform for Presidency: 1. Academic excellence
Rosales said he wants students to feel like they can voice their concerns on academic matters to the administration. He said he wants students to be able to be proud of SU’s academic reputation.
Rosales is concerned about self-segregation on campus. He said he would combat this issue by working with campus groups to host a week of events on campus, leading up to a cultural fair.
3. Student engagement
One of the issues Rosales wants students to be more aware of and engaged in is hunger on campus. He plans to address this issue by possibly hosting canned food drives for Hendricks’ food pantry.

we want to work on and say, ‘There’s just no way that anything can be done at all,’” he said. Ford’s campaign slogan is “Speak Up,” and his platform addresses tuition, academic advising and diversity. Ford’s involvement and connection with diverse groups on campus has allowed him to understand the needs of the student body. Ford said he decided to run for president after realizing he was the right person for the job. “I call it a ‘moral imperative’; I don’t know how else to say it,” Ford said. “Whenever I go to a place that I’m in or a part of, I like to make
it better than it was when I first got there. And so, for me, at Syracuse, getting involved in student government was the best way to make the school better.” Since his freshman year, Ford has assumed responsibility in several organizations on campus, from women’s issues to fraternity leadership. “There are so many people who don’t do much, who live day by day in that monotone lifestyle. Duane is everything that is opposite of that,” said Raja Ram, a senior finance and television, radio and film major, who has worked with Ford through SA and Phi Delta Theta since Ford’s freshman year. “The amount of time and effort he’s put into things is testimony enough.” From the moment Ford knocked on SA Presi-

You can tell people the direction you want to take them, but it takes motivation to get them to follow you.” A junior political science and policy studies major, Gresely is running with the overarching slogan, “Alliance for Change.” He said SA needs to revamp the way it works. And while some students think of reform as a bad thing, Gresely said he believes it’s normal, adding that SA should be a resource that lobbies for student interests. Gresely also added it was important to lay
the proper foundation to promote change, which will help SA succeed in the long run. One specific way Gresely wants to reform SA is to propose direct representation where assembly representatives would be responsible for building a relationship with a certain group of constituents in their home college. He said direct representation would make SA more accountable to the students. While the other presidential candidates have focused on the topic of diversity and self-segregation, Gresely said his background has given him ideas of how to address the problem. He is originally from West New York, N.J., a town Gresely said is very diverse. He identifies as Latino, with an Argentinian mother and an Ecuadorian father. He said his campaign slogan ties back to
dent Allie Curtis’ door, she knew that he was two things: one of the goofiest kids she’s ever met, and destined to succeed in SA. “Flash-forward a year from now, he will be able to do so much more than he’s done, which is a lot at this point,” Curtis said. Curtis said Ford’s reasonable, impartial approach during impeachment proceedings against Curtis last spring proved that he can make the most out of a difficult situation. While Ford was reluctant to speak in detail about the proceedings, he said he tried to stay unbiased when others were becoming partisan. “I didn’t come in with any hurt feelings,” Ford said. “I was able to see the situation from a bird’s eye view, looking straight and directly at the facts. That’s how I made my decision.” Eric McGriff, a junior political philosophy and women and gender studies major, said he noticed Ford’s ability to bring people together the day they met. “There were a bunch of people in a lounge, and Duane started singing,” McGriff said. “He sang with a smile and people joined in and, for me, that makes me think of Duane because he has always been one to bring people together, whether it is through music, advocacy or just in conversation.” The campaign’s slogan, “Speak Up,” seeks to promote proactivity to transition the campus from a culture that complains to friends to one that lobbies the university into tangible change, he said. “I don’t feel that students think they can go up and talk to a dean or a chancellor at any given moment and feel that their voice will be heard,” Ford said. Ford said he views SA as an intermediary between students and the upper administration, adding that his knowledge of the organization
from the bottom up lets him see how representatives should serve students. “People forget this university is a business, and just like any business it has to cater to its customers. Its customers are its students,” Ford said. “So if there’s enough support and enough activism from the students, then the university has to listen. We’re their customers. Without us, there is no business.”
creating reform in SA and on campus. “I’ve been exposed to a lot of different things, and what I’ve learned is to emphasize the one thing we all have in common, that we’re SU students,” he said. “You bring everyone together, it creates an alliance, and that’s how you promote change is by having everyone on the same page.” Gresely’s running mate is Daniela Lopez, a junior political science, policy studies and Spanish major. Lopez said Gresely’s experience sets him apart from other candidates. Students elected Gresely to become president of the Residence Hall Association last year after he was already an SA assembly representative under Neal Casey and Dylan Lustig’s administrations. But Gresely’s decision to run for SA president was made much earlier, said his campaign manager Danielle Shields. Shields, a sophomore marketing and advertising major, said she began working with Gresely on campaign ideas near the end of April. She said Gresely spent the summer putting together all of his ideas for what he wanted to do for SA, and has continued to be very focused on the campaign. “I don’t think Boris gets much sleep,” Shields said. “He wants to know he’s done everything he possibly could during the campaign. I know he’s so passionate and really wants to change things.” This is not the first presidential campaign Gresely has been a part of. He worked as the campaign manager for Iggy Nava, who ran for SA president last fall. Nava said he met Gresely during RHA meetings. Nava, a former columnist for The Daily Orange, said his own decision to run for president last year was spontaneous, but that Gresely helped keep everything on track.
“We started really late and he brought the organization aspect,” Nava said. “He also brought dedication. He knows how to fire people up.” Regardless of the outcome of the election, Gresely said he still plans on being an active member of the SU community, whether it’s in SA or other organizations. Said Gresely: “Once you put that sort of hat on as a student leader that you want to promote change and help out, you find ways.”
Duane Ford’s Platform for Presidency 1. Tuition
Ford hopes to ease the financial burden of the student body by increasing grants, freezing the price of tuition for freshmen until they graduate and tying tuition increases to market inflation.
2. Academic advising
He also hopes to lessen the load for academic advisers by creating a work-study position for junior- and senior-standing students to serve as academic advisers.
To break down social cliques, Ford proposes a summit to increase dialogue between different groups once divided by religion, socioeconomic status, etc. Ford also wants to change freshman forum classes to become more experiential than learning based.
Boris gresely’s Platform for Presidency 1. Reform
Gresely hopes to increase SA’s effectiveness, efficiency, transparency and accountability. Specifically, he wants to change its demerits system and create a direct representation system with students, along with other initiatives.
Gresely said a Student Affairs Summit could increase dialogue on campus between otherwise divided student groups. In the summit, all student leaders would gather and foster input to make everyone more inclusive.
Gresely believes SA should lobby student needs directly and that it will be able to tackle big issues such as tuition and meal prices only after SA reconnects with students.

with researchers from Harvard University to look into how exercise benefits mental and physical health. The final design “allows for a full interaction of the body and the mind,” he said. Bishop added that there would be more elements in the final Wyoming Street installation, including motion-sensing lights, LEDs imbedded in equipment and a rain garden, as well as work on the street itself. Wyoming Street was chosen as the location of the redesign because it is bookended by Nojaim Brothers Supermarket and the new
WCNY location, Jacobs said. He added that the area had “just the right amount of space.” Kelley Duffy, an instructional coach at the school, said the play area would instill a sense of community pride in local children. “It just feels very uplifting and fun,” she said. “You can see the kids all smiling and playing, and I don’t always see that in school.” The unveiling of the design is only the beginning of the project, said Jacobs, the Near Westside Initiative director. Said Jacobs: “This is really step one in a hundred other steps. We have significant funding that needs to still happen, our goal would be to start construction in the spring of 2015.” firstname.lastname@example.org
careers, so there needs to be a forum to discuss this.” Carter said he plans to suggest the creation of an open forum for faculty members to express questions and concerns, but reminded senators to encourage their colleagues to attend the meeting — otherwise it would be a “futile effort.” Currently, the Ad-Hoc Committee on Promotions is compiling a history of promotions in all colleges at SU, Raj said. He said the committee has completed 60 percent of its interviews with faculty and has interviewed all deans, associate deans and several administration members. The ad hoc committee has developed four tentative recommendations to improve the promotion process: aggregating promotion data through the vice chancellor and provost’s office; addressing problems with retention, specifically in cases where the university wants to retain faculty it may be in danger of losing; addressing problems where tenure is granted but promotion is not; and addressing a lack of university-wide review in promotions, Raj said. A senator raised the concern of how the changes the senate highlighted would be implemented. Carter said he asked the Academic Affairs Committee to consider the senate’s recommendations when they begin its review. To ensure that faculty members are fully aware of the ad hoc committee’s proposal, Carter said the it will be available online. A forum will be held in the future to make all concerns known as well. “Only senators vote, so it is incumbent
upon senators to go to their colleagues and let them know the report is available and get their input,” Carter said. After reviewing the proposal, the senate moved on to address other issues. Interim Chancellor Eric Spina discussed the current status of the university’s collaboration with Bain and Co., a global management consulting firm, which will be looking at staff, cost structures across nonacademic and academic areas and several other components of the university. The firm will then present its recommendations to a steering committee composed of faculty, staff, deans and administrative leaders, which will conduct an “Innovation and Opportunities Assessment” at SU, Spina said. Next week, a public forum will be held to discuss the outcome of Bain and Co.’s research and its future implications, he added. “We want to find out the best way to educate the community about the scope of Bain’s involvement,” Spina said. Spina said the Board of Trustees Budget Committee requested an external consulting firm last February because the university was experiencing a change in administration. He said Bain and Co. will serve as a “fresh set of eyes” to look at how the university functions. “Bain is here to help us validate a lot of the information that we haven’t reviewed in a long time, which is helping us learn more about ourselves as an institution,” Spina said. “It isn’t about decisions, but preparing information for the incoming chancellor so he has a better understanding of where we are in relation to our peers.” email@example.com

Retreat to promote greater female involvement in technology By Lydia Wilson Staff Writer
Nearly 90 female high school students will visit the School of Information Studies for an overnight retreat dedicated to encouraging a stronger female presence in the technology field. This year’s third annual IT Girls retreat will take place on Sunday and will go overnight into Monday. The retreat is designed to motivate female high school students to pursue technology. Those registered to attend will be representing more than 45 high schools mainly from the New York City, Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Philadelphia areas, said Dori Farah, graduate recruitment manager for the iSchool, in an email. Fatma NGom, who attended a previous retreat when she was a senior in high school, said the event was “eye-opening.” Now a sophomore studying information management and technology in the iSchool, she will be returning to the retreat as a mentor. “For some reason as I looked at the students on stage that night, I knew some-

NGom said she became inspired by the retreat when she learned how technology can make it easier to circulate information used to help foreign students and solve international issues in less-developed areas. “This truly sparked my attention and interest,” NGom said. “My goal in life is to not only make a difference in America, but in my home country Senegal, located in West Africa.” The retreat will include a workshop with an iSchool professor and students, a sleepover in on-campus residence halls with current iSchool female students and participation in fall reception and other activities, Farah said. The will also be a celebration dinner, which NGom recalled as her fondest memory of the retreat. “There were beautiful and fun performances, and we got a lot of encouragement and advice from upperclass women in SU studying (information management and

According to the National Center for Women in Information Technology, women earn 57 percent of all undergraduate degrees in the U.S., but only 18 percent of all computer and information science degree recipients are female,” Farah said. Heather Pyle, a senior in the iSchool and president of Women in Information Technology, said the retreat is a larger part of the iSchool’s initiative to increase female enrollment. The iSchool also hosts Girls Are IT in collaboration with The Girl Scouts, which reaches out to middle school-age girls in Central New York. In her roles as a student mentor and overnight hostess for current IT Girls, NGom said she hopes to instill confidence in young ladies looking to enter the technology field. “I hope to inspire other women to not let intimidation or negativity to stop them from stepping out of their comfort zone,” NGom said. “I hope to continue to mentor young ladies, and increase the amount of women in the technology field.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Hendricks Chapel to host 24-hour ‘famine’ on Saturday By Rahimon Nasa staff Writer
Hendricks Chapel will host its first-ever 24-hour “famine” on Saturday as part of its 2013 hunger initiative. Participants will abstain from eating for an entire day to promote awareness of hunger in the community and raise money to feed the hungry. “This year there was a lot of synergy to think about the issue of hunger,” said Tiffany Steinwert, dean of Hendricks. “We can all connect to what it is like to be hungry and we know that we are situated in this community of Syracuse where people go hungry every day.” Hendricks will host the fast with the STEP Center of the Lutheran Campus Ministry and the Grace Episcopal Church, said Gail Riina, the Lutheran chaplain at Hendricks. “We want the message that every individual can make a difference to come across,” said Riina, who is also co-director of the STEP Center. “We are hosting a series of events to educate, do hands-on service, to supply food to our local community.” She explained that the money and handson service will be focused locally so people can make a direct difference in their community rather than feeling removed from the issue. Volunteers will meet in the Noble Room in Hendricks on Saturday to kick off the event with a welcome lunch and orientation at 11 a.m. The fast will then begin at noon. “The fasting is a spiritual exercise meant to be a limited experience in solidarity with those who have no choice about the food they eat or having enough to eat,” Riina said. Volunteers will help collect non-perishable foods at local supermarkets including Tops, Wegmans and Price Chopper. They also have the option of volunteering at local food pantries to stock shelves and organize supplies, she added. Transportation to and from these locations will be provided, and even participants who are not fasting for

Jill Ouikahilo, the director of communications from the Division of Student Affairs said that, as far as she knows, this email was not approved by SU. “Any communication to the student Listserv needs permission from either Academic Affairs, Public Affairs or Student Affairs, and it is also against university policies to send such an email like that,” Ouikahilo said in an email. Greston Gill, a senior accounting and finance major, received an email about SmileBack and downloaded the app, she said. “It’s more of a social networking site in a sense that probably someone that you don’t necessarily know will probably smile at you,” Gill said. “They smile back and I’m going to smile back and then it builds relationships.” Emma Thomson, a freshman chemical engineering major, downloaded the app but

Those who choose to stay can participate in several games and activities for a sleepover, according to the 24-hour famine’s website. The next morning they will break the fast at noon and participate in other service projects, such as delivering items to the food bank, Riina added. “The whole purpose of the STEP Center is to get students to step out of their world and into someone else’s and be more involved with the community,” said Brittany Moore, a junior television, radio and film and information management and technology major. She is also the student director for the STEP Center. Said Moore: “I think it’s important for student’s to see that there is life outside of our campus and that there are people who are suffering.” firstname.lastname@example.org
deleted it because she was uncomfortable with the messages she’d been receiving from one of her matches. Although it wasn’t for her, Thomson said she thinks that the app has a place on college campuses and is a fun idea for meeting new people. “It’s better for shyer people, too,” Thomson said. Julian Nelums, a freshman international relations major, uses the app but sees both the positives and negatives to it. He said the app provides a new way to connect. “I feel like it’s eHarmony for college students almost, but it’s not that serious at the same time,” he said. “And cons, I’d say: When you think about it, it’s kind of creepy from what could happen and stuff like that.” Berenholz, one of the creators, said overall the app has received positive feedback. He hopes to launch the app in most major colleges by the end of the academic year. “We’re planning on expanding to colleges across the country,” Berenholz said. “We want this to be the app that every college student thinks of when they ask themselves ‘how am I going to know who else goes to my college besides the people that I sit next to in class?’ This is the app that they want to use.” email@example.com

Twenty-year-old Chicago native, rapper hypes up sold-out crowd in Schine Underground By Tom Sharkey
t’s called “The Social Experiment Tour” for a reason. Chance the Rapper, a 20-year old Chicago native, has been turning heads everywhere he’s been since
the release of his critically acclaimed mixtape “Acid Rap” in late April. His most recent stop was Syracuse University, where he performed at the Schine Underground on Wednesday as the latest artist in University Union’s Bandersnatch concert series.
He definitely made a statement. “I think the fact that Chance’s show sold so well is a testament to our ability to pick the right artists for the Bandersnatch series,” said Billy Ceskavich, president of University Union. “When we book Bandersnatch

history — tickets for the show sold out in less than an hour. There was already a long line of students waiting to watch the rapper perform by the time doors opened to the Schine Underground at 7 p.m. The

Q&A with Coni Duchess: singer, bassist of Capsula By Vanessa Salman Staff Writer
The name Capsula — meaning capsule when translated — originated from David Bowie’s “Space Oddity.” Capsula, a Latino indie-psychedelic rock band, formed during 1998 in Argentina, then moved to Bilbao, Spain, in 2001. But despite its foreign routes, the group is no stranger to the United States. Together, band members Martin Guevara, Coni Duchess and Ignacio Villarejo Solimo have previously toured in the United States. And in 2009, they performed at the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin, Texas. While there, David Fricke, a senior editor at Rolling Stone, dubbed them one of the “best surprises” of the event. Capsula will be opening for fellow psychedelic rockers, Os Mutantes, Nov. 10 at the Westcott Theater. The Daily Orange spoke with Duchess — Capsula’s vocalist and bassist — about the band’s style, influences and what she likes most about performing.
The Daily Orange: What’s the best way to describe your music? Coni Duchess: If I had to label it, the label would be rock ‘n’ roll. When we try to describe our sound, of course, it’s like different sounds — like psychedelic sounds from the guitars — but then there’s the minimalistic rhythm of the bass. That combination makes a new sound, which is our own sound I would say. The energy and the wildness on the stage is rock ‘n’ roll.
The D.O.: What is your favorite song you’ve produced or performed?
C.D.: I will choose from different periods of the band. The first three albums were in Spanish — with a very sonic sound — but the lyrics were in Spanish. I love the first track from the first album, which is called “Caballos de Mar.” Then, the songs we recorded from other artists, we recorded a version of The Velvet Underground, “Run Run Run.” That was a very intimate recording with Martin, shot out of our house, shot with a cymbal, a guitar and a bass. And then of course, we recorded the whole Ziggy Stardust album by David Bowie. The D.O.: What bands would you compare your style to? C.D.: It’s hard because the sound is like a living creature. While you are playing it, you can set up your sound, but the sound has its own movement. Sometimes, I would say we sound like a dark band from 1983 or 1984, like some post-punk or new wave, like Birthday Party. Also, we have a rhythm and blues feeling. Bands like very early Rolling Stones or The Yardbirds, I don’t know, it’s a strange combination.
The D.O.: What influences your music? C.D.: We get inspired by everyday ideas, especially by dreams. They are thoughts running in a free way, so we listen very careful to them because they are very important to our writing of music.
The D.O.: How would you describe the sound of “Solar Secrets,” your latest album? C.D.: It is an album that, at times, is psychedelic, and at times dark. It also has its aggressive moments. It is for guitar lovers. firstname.lastname@example.org

Treasure trove Scavenger hunt gives people opportunity to explore downtown Syracuse, win cash prizes
By Kristin Ross Feature Editor
his Sunday, a scavenger hunt in Armory Square may just earn you two crisp Benjamins. Syracuse Updowntowners, a community group that started in 1980 to bring the community together by throwing events for people of all ages, is hosting the “Take Your Shot: Picture This” photo scavenger hunt for the second year on Nov. 10 from noon-5 p.m. Participants are required to sign up in teams of two-four and pre-register online ($10 per person) or in person the day of the event ($12 per person). The winning team will be awarded $200, but other prizes will also be awarded for second and third place teams, as well as door prize drawings. “The idea is so we can get people to look at things a little bit differently and to notice things about the community that they have maybe not noticed before,” said Ann Goehner, the chair of the event. The rules are simple. You and your team will be given 25 photos that were taken somewhere around the Syracuse area, within a 5-mile radius of Armory Square. Take a photo of a group member in the exact location of each given photo to prove that you were there. Whichever team finds and photographs all 25 locations the quickest wins. However, there are other ways to win a different prize. Each photograph is worth a certain number of points, based on the estimated difficulty of finding it. The team with the most number of points will also win something, such as gift certificates from local businesses. “Even if they don’t complete all of the pictures, they still have a chance of winning something,” Goehner said. The event not only encourages people to look at the city in a different light, but also to connect with people of Syracuse on a more personal level. For instance, if a team is trying to find a location of a photo that they do not know, Goehner said they should ask passersby on the street if they might know it. Although the event begins at noon, registration is open until 2 p.m. the day of, said Josie Losurdo, the Syracuse Updowntowners programs director. But the photographs are handed out no earlier than noon. Participants should meet at the Syracuse

room quickly filled with a diverse mix of students who danced around to some of the biggest hip-hop songs currently on the radio, curated by Chance’s opening act, DJ Rashad. The room was buzzing with anticipation in the moments before Chance took the stage, and his opening song “Good Ass Intro” was sung just as much by the crowd as it was by the rapper himself. The students’ familiarity with Chance’s music was apparent from the very start of the concert, and it did not go unnoticed. “Man, this is a great crowd,” Chance said between performing two of his songs. “I espe-

cially appreciate you guys supporting my music because this is a college show, and I know you’re all students. That’s really special to me.” The show continued with “You Song,” a track off Lil Wayne’s recent “Dedication 5” mixtape, which Chance was featured on. Chance has said in the past that being asked to work with Lil Wayne has been the highlight of his still-budding career. And the number of students singing along to the chorus of “You Song” proved working with Lil Wayne has helped Chance gain even more exposure among hip-hop fans. After exiting the stage for a brief moment, Chance returned to the beat of his song “Smoke Again” blaring through the speakers of the Underground. “Smoke Again” brought the crowd’s energy to its peak, and Chance kept this momentum up by transitioning quickly into “Juice” and then “Favorite Song,” three of “Acid Rap’s” most popular and well-known songs. In a move that could only be called a social experiment, Chance then switched things up with an unexpected cover of Coldplay’s “Fix You,” which he sang in its entirety over a soft and subtle instrumental of the song. Chance then thanked the audience for a great show and left the stage in what initially

Whispers and worried speculation filled the room as students questioned whether or not he would return to the stage to perform an encore. But after a long minute or two of waiting, Chance ended the uncertainty when he took to the stage one last time. Prefacing the first of three songs in the encore as his “favorite song, for real,” Chance began singing “Interlude (That’s Love)” to the flashes of a sea of smartphones. Students stayed engaged and kept their energy levels high, singing along to the last two songs of
Chance’s set, “Chain Smoker” and “Everything’s Good (Good Ass Outro).” And with that, the crowd dispersed as the lights in the Underground turned on and the music cut out. Chance stayed grateful to the crowd throughout the show and thanked students for participating in and embracing his unconventional style. There were moments of spontaneous breakdancing and even an unexpected wardrobe change during Chance’s set. And while the show may have been one big experiment, students seemed happy to participate. “I absolutely love Chance the Rapper, so
there was no way I was missing this show,” said Morgan Hutson, a sophomore acting major. “I’ve been listening to him since he dropped his first mixtape, ‘10 Day,’ and I thought ‘Acid Rap’ was incredible. The show did not disappoint.” The next artist to perform in UU Bandersnatch concert series will be Hudson Mohawke, who will take the stage in the Underground on Dec. 4.

Low bank funds haunt columnist, result in stress about partying, eating
t’s about 3 in the morning. And I receive a text message from an unknown number. “Who could it be?” I wonder to myself, while my mind quickly concludes that it must be a serial killer. Not just any serial killer, though — a serial killer that specializes in killing bland college kids. I tentatively check my phone and read the text message, expecting a death threat. And I see who the real sender is. It’s just my bank. So no, it’s not a serial killer, but almost as scary as one. The message reads, “Current Balance Low: $41.23.” Now, there are a couple of unsettling things about this situation. My first qualm is the time at which I was contacted. Who in the boardroom of M&T Bank decided a 3 a.m. text message was a completely reasonable way to reach someone to say, “Hey, you’re poor!” “Yes, brilliant!” I assume all of the monoclewearing executives exclaimed. “Now that Christian Unkenholz will definitely miss his first class and be poor forever.” This statement
that guy is then followed by a fit of maniacal laughter. My second qualm is that I legitimately don’t understand what happened to all of my money. Yeah, there was that one week that included about four Chipotle visits — which translates handily to the amount of years knocked off my life by said Chipotle visits. But it’s more than just food. Everything in college seems to cost an absurd amount of money that would make even Mitt Romney shake his moneybags in disdain. Even going out on the weekend is crazy expensive. I mean, come on, frats. Five dollars is a lot of money. That’s like three-fourths of a Chipotle burrito. How do you expect me to
destroy my body with a diminished budget? And how are you supposed to effectively “YOLO” when “yo funds are low?” I vowed I was not going to spend any more money. I was going to beat the system. Now, don’t get too impressed with me. A life without spending is not a pretty one. It is actually a life of thievery. But it’s not that cool “Ocean’s Eleven” style skullduggery. No, you may be surprised to learn there are many differences between me and George Clooney. One, I don’t own a suit, and another, George Clooney didn’t spend his Saturday listening to the Muppets’ Christmas album. My perfect heist pretty much includes me hiding an absurd amount of yogurts in my shirt like Jamie Lee Curtis’ digestive relaxant mule as I leave the dining hall. I know, pretty devious, right? And at frats, I now stay firmly planted at the bar yelling to my friends dancing close by that I need to get my money’s worth of that sweet, sweet watered-down beer. And doing my laundry? Way too expensive.
OK, maybe that was just an excuse for my absolute laziness. But there’s something about five simultaneous yogurts in your belly that starts to put some simple truths to light. Saving money sucks. I know, stop the presses. But there is very little enjoyment derived from a mountain of stolen yogurt cups and maybe one extra beer at a party. Spending money is inherently fun. I mean, there’s a reason Jay Gatsby is rich and not a wise ole hobo. Though “Hobo Gatsby” would make a great themed party. But spending too much money can lead to more stress than you need when you’re in college. As with everything, it’s all about balance. Don’t go crazy, but don’t get so wrapped up in saving that you miss out on the exciting things college has to offer. And besides, I think we can all agree that yogurt really, really sucks.

Arrogant Bastard Ale tastes chalky, advertising misleads consumers By Avery Hartmans
Like most people, I find it difficult to back down from a challenge. So when I saw the slogan of Stone Brewing Co.’s Arrogant Bastard Ale, I knew I had to try it. “You’re not worthy,” it said on the packaging. When I read that, I thought, “Of course I am. I’m buying this.” That logic had a lot of holes — chiefly that the brewery was using the oldest trick in the book to get me to purchase its beer — and it worked like a charm. The label claimed it was an “aggressive beer,” whatever that means. It also said I probably didn’t have the “taste or sophistication to be able to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.” At the time, I thought that was funny. Now, I’m just mad I spent $5 on a 22-ounce bottle of beer. You see, arrogance is only acceptable if you can back it up. It seemed promising at first. It was dark and rich when I poured it out and looked like an amber ale. It smelled like it, too, and I was pretty excited to taste test it. But when I finally did, my first thought was, “This is so normal.” At first, it was one of those beers where you can take it or leave it, and the only reason you continue to drink it is either because you’re really thirsty or you’re just trying to get hammered. It was like the ultra-hoppy version of a Blue Light. But after a while, I started to wish I were
drinking a Blue Light instead. The more I drank it, the worse it got, until the horrifyingly bitter aftertaste forced me to quit. I thought nothing could ruin the perfect pizza that I had handcrafted to go with it, but this did. As I sat there contemplating where this beer went wrong, I realized what it reminded me of: It tasted like when you accidentally let a pill dissolve on your tongue and it leaves a chalky, bitter, disgusting aftertaste. Sounds yummy, right? The brewery just way overdid it with the hops, to the point that the ale lost any semblance of beer at all, and I felt like I was just drinking a hops milkshake. I tried to look up which varieties of hops they used, but the brewery keeps that information under wraps — as if anyone would try to copycat their subpar beer. This beer also didn’t have any flavor. It wasn’t malty, it wasn’t infused with anything delicious and it totally lacked creativity and complexity. It was trying too hard to be badass, and it just wasn’t. In the end, I decided that I am more than worthy — of drinking a better beer, anyway. I appreciate Arrogant Bastard’s attempt to be cheeky and sassy, and to distract people from the super-awful taste of the beer with clever marketing and reverse psychology. But facts are facts. It’s just gross.

Broyld faces former teammate Jacobs in Syracuse-Maryland By Sam Blum Staff Writer
yuki mizuma | staff photographer michael gbinije cut down on his turnovers Tuesday. He committed three after turning the ball over five times on Friday. He is adjusting to being SU’s backup point guard.
cornell from page 24
to play this much point guard. Upon arrival at SU, he’d never played the position regularly. He was comfortable at shooting guard — or small forward. “I knew I had to play it some,” Gbinije said, “but I got thrown in the fire.” That’s not to say he doesn’t embrace the challenge. Gbinije said he has “no problem” running
“I knew I had to play (point guard) some, but I got thrown in the fire.” Michael Gbinije
the offense. He just needs more time to learn and adjust. Gbinije only started practicing primarily at the position at the start of the year. And the two scrimmages have been his most serious basketball since playing 5.8 minutes per game as a true freshman at Duke two seasons ago. “Give me a couple more games and I think I’ll be right on top,” Gbinije said. Ennis said he has already seen tremendous improvement from Gbinije in his poise and command of the offense. Gbinije admitted those were issues after playing Holy Family last Friday, saying he would sometimes think about a play coming down the court without ever signaling to his teammates. But against the Rams, he was visibly more instructive, directing screeners with his offball hand and calling out plays in the backcourt.
“I think he’s coming along great for somebody who hasn’t played point guard before,” Ennis said. “As the season goes on I think he’ll be able to adjust to presses more.” That is the big question. Gbinije’s play was especially atrocious at the end of the Holy Family (Pa.) University exhibition when he turned the ball over four times in the final 9:06 to a Division II press. The Big Red may not pressure Gbinije in the backcourt on Friday, but many teams likely will. To become a reliable backup point guard in the Atlantic Coast Conference, learning how to break pressure will be mandatory. SU head coach Jim Boeheim acknowledged Gbinije’s struggles after the Holy Family scrimmage. He attributed them, in part, to playing heavily with freshmen Ron Patterson and B.J. Johnson rather than Ennis, C.J. Fair or Trevor Cooney. But while Gbinije showed signs of improvement Tuesday, his performance wasn’t that much better. Even Boeheim admitted — while maintaining true Boeheim form — that there is improvement that needs to be made. “I don’t get concerned about these things,” Boeheim said. “That’s for you guys. We’ll try to fix it.” firstname.lastname@example.org @Stephen_Bailey1
Michael Gbinije struggled in SU’s preseason. Here’s a look at his game-bygame breakdown.
Holy Family 2 4 5 4 Ryerson 5 3 3 3
Levern Jacobs was the wide receiver that used big ears to help him fly past opponents. Ashton Broyld was the fat quarterback that used his weight to help him truck past potential tacklers. As teammates at Milford Academy in 2011, that’s how Broyld and Jacobs joked. They were two of the best players on a team that went 12-0, and a lot of that had to do with the bond that they had off the field. “That’s my brother,” Broyld said. “You know we went through a lot of stuff together, spent a lot of time together, talked about a lot of stuff. We’re really close. He was one of my good friends there. I can’t wait to see him.” On Saturday, the two friends will reunite, but the circumstances won’t be as friendly. Broyld, a New York native, will be donning Syracuse orange. Jacobs, a Maryland native, will be decked in Terrapin red. The pair is just two years removed from one of the greatest seasons in Milford Academy history. Broyld was the starting quarterback for the team. He called on Jacobs’ number quite often, as the receiver went on to finish with eight touchdown receptions on the season — a school record. “That team was totally 100 percent together,” said Milford head coach Bill Chaplick. “Not just the two of them, but everybody. They had one goal in mind. Not to lose a game.” Chaplick knew the team was different in its first game against Atlanta Sports Academy. He said that team mirrored them in almost every way, but Broyld and Jacobs helped set them apart. “When we beat them in the second half I knew that we had something special,” Chaplick said. “The will to win on both sides of the ball. On offense and defense. The two of those guys were the stars.” Though the lasting memory of the 2011 class at Milford Academy will always be a positive one, the process to get there was one that involved a lifetime of hard work packed into a debilitating four-month season. The academy is a one-year post-high school football program for students that either don’t qualify academically for Division I football, or didn’t get the offers they were hoping for. Most days include waking up before dawn. Eating. Classes. Football. Lights out. It’s not a place to enjoy — it’s a place to survive. “Our practices were nothing but straight battling,” said Dimitrius Smith, a defensive lineman and graduate of the same 2011 Milford team. “Everyone was fighting for a spot, everyone was fighting to be that guy that colleges wanted. Every day was a fight for your life.” But amid all the long days and all of the
grueling competition, Jacobs and Broyld were able to make a bond. “We were just in the same building, same classes for four months,” Jacobs said. “When you’re a quarterback and receiver, your friendship and bond is going to be closer than other players. “I think he’ll be one of my lifelong friends.” They’d play video games together, talk about girls, eat and just hang out. In such a competitive environment, they’d rely on each other to help get them through the week. “We had people that stayed in their room because it was a jungle,” Broyld said. “It was a lot of people from the inner city, thugs, whatever you want to call them. You don’t get along with everybody, there’s a select few that you do, and he was one of those guys.” For both players, their time at Milford helped develop them into the college athletes they are today. Two weeks ago, Maryland lost its two best receivers to injuries. Jacobs responded with the best game of his career. He had eight catches for 158 yards and a touchdown. “Being at Milford was a lot of tough games and a lot of hard-fought battles,” Jacobs said. “I’m always willing to be in a dogfight, and I’m always willing to come out on top. It helped me excel as a receiver.” Both Jacobs and Broyld will get the chance to showcase their talents against each other for the first time when their two teams meet. Though they have an unbreakable bond, Saturday will be all business. “He can’t wait to play us.” Broyld said. “And we can’t wait to play them. “It’s all about the competition.” email@example.com

Norton to start; UMD clears QB Brown to play
Apartments for Rent
Maryland senior quarterback C.J. Brown is cleared to play against Syracuse on Saturday, Terrapins head coach Randy Edsall said during the ACC coaches’ teleconference Wednesday. “C.J., he’s ready to go,” Edsall said. “He’s cleared. He’s practiced last week and he needed that time off to get himself healed up.” Brown suffered a concussion in Maryland’s loss to No. 3 Florida State on Oct. 5, and missed two of the team’s last three games with lingering effects. But he’s just one of the injured playmakers whose absence has hampered Maryland this season. The losses of superstar sophomore wide receiver Stefon Diggs and fellow wideout Deon Long — coupled with Brown’s concussion — has led to a steep decline in the Terrapins’ passing success. “We’re down a few guys that he doesn’t have in there with him that we had earlier in the season,” Edsall said. “But like I said he’s a really good leader and he’s a guy that knows the offense, understands it and has experience.” Brown shined through the first third of the season, throwing seven touchdowns to one interception as the Terrapins went 4-0. But in his lone game since the blowout at the hands of the Seminoles, Brown was 15-for-24 for 137 yards and a season-high two interceptions against Wake Forest on Oct. 19. Sophomore Caleb Rowe has thrown for 989 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions filling in for Brown. firstname.lastname@example.org @Stephen_Bailey1

By Stephen Bailey Ryan Norton will start at kicker in Syracuse’s game against Maryland on Saturday at 3:30 p.m., head coach Scott Shafer announced Wednesday during the weekly Atlantic Coast Conference coaches’ teleconference. Norton was suspended last week after being charged with resisting arrest and underage possession of alcohol, and did not play in SU’s 13-0 win against Wake Forest last Saturday. When asked why he issued a one-week suspension to Norton after dismissing Markus Pierce-Brewster and Davon Walls following felony burglary and misdemeanor petit larceny charges in March, Shafer offered a second straight short response. “It’s just my policy,” Shafer said. Regardless of circumstance, Norton may be one of as many as three players to bolster the Orange roster when it travels to College Park, Md. Shafer said nose tackle Eric Crume, who was a game-time decision against the Demon Deacons and finished with only nine snaps, looked sharp in practice Tuesday, and running back George Morris II returned to practice as well. Shafer said Crume probably could have played more against Wake Forest, but the Okie package was thriving without him and it seemed smartest to let him rest. “I think our training staff’s done a great job getting him back,” Shafer said. “I think he’s close to being at 100 percent.” Morris, who hasn’t played since the Clemson game on Oct. 5, appears on the mend as well. “He had a good practice, kind of had to knock the rust off, but nice to see him back out there,” Shafer said. “We’ll kind of take it day by day.”

roberson from page 24
Roberson said. “I was more annoyed that I had to wait to come up to school and not be able to play.” His role likely won’t allow him to go for 51 points — he’s behind Jerami Grant and C.J. Fair in Syracuse’s rotation — but he has the skills to create offensively and the length and athleticism to be a force in the Orange’s 2-3 zone. Pyonin went as far as projecting Roberson to be the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft one day. Getting cleared was always going to be a process. He began at Union High School before transferring to Roselle Catholic after his sophomore year. He would have to do summer work after his senior year to qualify. When his coursework was done, the process fell into the NCAA’s hands. He and his high school coach Dave Boff checked Roberson’s page on the NCAA Clearinghouse website several times a day, hoping that one time it would tell them that Roberson was approved. “I think he was not concerned at all until a couple weeks after he finished his summer classes,” Boff said. “Everybody expected that it would be we submit the information and everything’s good a few days later or a week later. It was weeks after weeks after weeks with no change in his status. He was pending the whole time.” His days consisted of practice and workouts — first at his high school, then to his AAU facility and back. Or vice versa. If he couldn’t work with his new team, he would work to make himself better. “(People) see this ridiculous 6-9 athlete that can run and jump and they have no idea, no clue, how many hours went in to developing the level of skill that he has,” Boff said. Since his arrival at SU, he’s struggled to get acclimated in some regards. During the first week or so of practice, Pyonin said he got a call from Syracuse assistant coach Mike Hopkins praising Roberson’s play
maryland from page 24
route running is entirely different on the outside and the timing is tough to adjust to. But his quarterback is confident he’ll figure it out soon. “He’s still working out the kinks,” Hunt said. “He’s an athlete and he can play anywhere on the field, so he’s going to get it sooner or later.” Hunt threw a few catchable balls in Broyld’s
“He’s still working out the kinks. He’s an athlete and he can play anywhere on the field, so he’s going to get it sooner or later.”

direction, but there was clear miscommunication between the two. On third-and-6, midway through the third quarter, Hunt spotted Broyld down the right sideline. He bombed the ball and led Broyld, but the pass was too far and fell incomplete. The lack of practice and comfort were transparent. Some of that falls on Hunt, but Syracuse offensive coordinator George McDonald said Broyld “went through a couple growing pains” against Wake Forest. He blocked well, McDonald said, but is still a work in progress.
in practice. But in early October, Roberson pulled his hamstring and missed about a week and a half. Just when he was finding his rhythm with the Orange, he hit another bump. After Syracuse’s 81-46 preseason win over Ryerson University, SU head coach Jim Boeheim said there were a few times that Roberson ran to the wrong side of the zone. In the exhibition win over Holy Family (Pa.) University, he got caught cheating up too far in the zone and beaten for a couple of alley oops. “He just wasn’t in the right position,” Boeheim said. “It’s better to learn that now than later.” Roberson had a handful of backup options in place had he not been cleared. He could’ve stuck around in New Jersey and attended another year of high school. He could have headed overseas and played professionally before trying to jump to the NBA. His most likely choice, though, was to enroll at Syracuse as a student until he got cleared. Roberson’s bags were packed for school even before he finally got word that he was cleared. He was always confident that he would be cleared, but the decision wouldn’t change his mind on SU. As soon as he got word from the NCAA, Roberson and his family packed up the car and drove to Central New York with Pyonin. Missing the Canada trips has probably left him behind in some respects, Boeheim said, but Roberson has poured in hours with assistant coach Adrian Autry to try to crack the Orange’s crowded frontcourt rotation. His coaches urged him toward Syracuse because of how perfectly he fits in the 2-3 zone. The final steps of his journey have had some hiccups — and still could have some more — but somewhere down the road, it seems, Roberson will be a force on the SU wing. “He’s a really good player. We have good players and he’s one of those good players,” Autry said. “We’re just very blessed and happy that he’s here and that we have him.” email@example.com @DBWilson2
“Since I didn’t get the ball I tried to block as best I could,” Broyld said, “and I took my anger out on the person I was putting my hands on.” Broyld said he was frustrated after the win, and that making the adjustment with such short notice was difficult. McDonald said the goal is to make the defense defend all five eligible receivers. If a team zeroes in on Estime, then Broyld and other options like are neglected and have room to operate. “We’re just trying to spread out the playmakers,” McDonald said, “and allow our guys to get the ball in open space.” And for Estime, the switch gives him the opportunity he has been waiting for and a chance to continue to unwrap his evident talent. Estime’s best attribute on the field is his ability to make people miss. He showcased that skill in the return game against Georgia Tech and from the slot against Wake Forest. Midway through the second quarter he picked up two first downs on a Syracuse drive. He used his deceptiveness and quick footedness to outmaneuver his way past strong safety Ryan Janvion on the first play and picked up enough for the first down on the second before Brandon Chubb made the stop. Against Maryland, Syracuse will rely on more of the same from Estime and more consistency from Broyld. Both players will be key cogs moving forward as Syracuse enters the final stretch of the season. “They’re both great space players,” McDonald said. “They’re both different, but they both have the ability to make people miss to get yards after the catch.” firstname.lastname@example.org @TrevorHass

THE WAITING GAME spencer bodian | asst. photo editor tyler roberson had to wait longer than he hoped to be cleared academically by the NCAA. While SU competed in four August exhibitions in Canada, he continued working on his game and even played against NBA stars.
Roberson catches up after waiting for NCAA clearance By David Wilson
hile the rest of his Syracuse teammates were playing a preseason tour in Canada, Tyler Roberson was taking on NBA stars Kyrie Irving and C.J. Miles in the East Orange Pro Am. Roberson erupted for 51 points and 14 rebounds to lead his team past the pros in the league’s championship game on Aug. 14. “I take every game as a challenge no matter who I’m playing against,” Roberson said, “so when I’m going up against
guys like this I take it as even more of a challenge to elevate part 3 of 4 my game.”? Roberson hadn’t yet been cleared by the NCAA, and his freshman season at SU was in limbo. He spent the months working out at his high school — Roselle (N.J.) Catholic — at the NJ Roadrunners’ AAU facility — sometimes with Irving — and competing in the East Orange Pro Am. “It was a blessing in disguise,” his AAU
coach Sandy Pyonin said. “It gave me a couple other months to work with him, to train him.” Roberson was finally cleared during the first week of September. There was unbridled joy. An incredible sense of relief. His mother even cried, Pyonin said. Roberson, the No. 14 power forward recruit in the Class of 2013 and SU’s second-highest rated commit, would be eligible to play in 2013. “I kind of knew I was going to be cleared. I knew it was just a process,”

Gbinije gets ‘thrown in the fire’ as untested PG By Stephen Bailey Asst. Sports Editor
Michael Gbinije took the pass from DaJuan Coleman and flew up the left side of the court. As he crossed midcourt, he saw a streaking Rakeem Christmas on his right, but as he lifted the ball and his body upward, preparing to throw a lob, Gbinije fumbled the ball.
It trickled off his knee and onto the floor, where Ryerson guard Adika Peter-McNeilly scooped it up and Gbinije fouled him to prevent the fast break. “That Who: Cornell was one Where: Carrier Dome of those When: Friday, 7 p.m. moments Channel: MSG Plus where I
jumped in the air and the ball didn’t come with me,” Gbinije said. “I was like, ‘Oh, bleep.’” Gbinije continued to struggle in his transition to point guard during SU’s exhibition win over Ryerson University on Tuesday. He was only listed as having three turnovers after logging five three nights earlier, but he still appeared indecisive at

Broyld shifts from H-back to wideout By Trevor Hass Asst. Sports Editor
Last week in practice, Terrel Hunt was surprised to see Ashton Broyld lined up on the perimeter instead of in the slot. “I’m like, ‘What you doin’ out there?’” Hunt said. Who: Maryland “Nah, nah,” Where: College Broyld respondPark, Md. ed. “I’m playing When: Saturday, here now.” 3:30 p.m. And so he is. Channel: MSG With the emergence of freshman H-back Brisly Estime, Broyld moves outside to a more traditional wide receiver position instead of the H-back role he occupied prior to the Wake Forest game. Syracuse (4-4, 2-2 Atlantic Coast) will try this setup for the second week in a row when it travels to Maryland (5-3, 1-3) to face the Terrapins on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. in College Park, Md. The long-term switch allows Estime to continue to see the field after he scored his first collegiate touchdown and led all SU receivers with 62 yards against Wake Forest. It also enables Broyld to use his size to his advantage on the outside. Most importantly, it gets arguably the Orange’s two most explosive receivers on the field at the same time. “What we’re trying to do with it is create a consistent passing game,” Broyld said. “(Estime’s) an explosive player, and I’m trying to be an explosive player.” Broyld wasn’t explosive on Saturday, though. He seemed lost in his new role and didn’t record a catch against the Demon Deacons. While Estime flourished, Broyld missed catchable balls. “That’s my fault,” Broyld said. “I got the ball thrown to me and didn’t make the play. Got to move on. Put the ball in my area, I got to go get it.” For a player who has shuffled from quarterback to running back to H-back and now to wide receiver, change is nothing new. Broyld said
