Social media encourages participation By Marissa Blanchard STAFF WRITER
When college students see the words “Big Bird,” “binders full of women” and “bayonets” associated with the elections, they might be more inclined to take an interest. “Big Bird is a gateway drug to the political debates,” said William Ward, a professor of social media. Ward made this observation based on feedback from students in his mass communications in society class. After seeing a Big Bird meme mocking former Gov. Mitt Romney’s suggestion to stop funding PBS, the students were inspired to research the issue in depth.

Pat-Osagie pledges to connect campus organizations, SA Finance Board during comptroller campaign

Dollars and sense
Incumbent Comptroller DeSalvo to continue leadership, commitment to Finance Board reforms
By Jen Bundy
By Kevin Prise
sarumwense Pat-Osagie has attended Student Association meetings and seen how the budget proposals are reviewed. Most notably, he noticed many campus organizations were getting denied funding for easily corrected technicalities. “I was sitting there thinking, ‘Why are these groups getting denied funding?’” Pat-Osagie said. Pat-Osagie, a Nigerian-born junior finance and entrepreneurship and emerging enterprises major, is currently running for the position of SA comptroller in an election set to take place at SU from Nov. 12-15. Currently, the only opponent Pat-Osagie faces is the incumbent comptroller Stephen DeSalvo. SA comptroller is the “point person” that allocates funding from the student activity fee to student organizations, said Jeff Rickert, a former SA comptroller and current graduate accounting student. The position is also in charge of overseeing the successful completion of the events planned by student organizations and rethinking the resources given for the next year. “I think the position is a lot more important than people realize,” Rickert said. “If you go around campus and ask what the SA comptroller does, maybe one student can give you an answer.” Pat-Osagie’s platform for the 2013 SA comptroller position focuses on bridging the gap between student organizations on campus and the SA Finance Board.
rad Monroe knew at a young age that his classmate Stephen DeSalvo had a knack for leading. DeSalvo was elected student council president in the seventh grade while Monroe was also on the council, and he demonstrated the same traits then that Monroe sees in him today. “He just has a combination of intelligence and self-confidence when he speaks,” said Monroe, a junior finance major. “He was a good president, good leader, easy to support. Everyone was behind him.” DeSalvo, a junior chemical engineering major, brought that leadership ability with him to Syracuse University. DeSalvo, who is currently completing his first term as Student Association comptroller, is running for re-election next week. Students can vote on MySlice from Nov. 12-15. As comptroller, DeSalvo leads SA’s Finance Board, which is in charge of allocating the student fee to various campus groups and organizations. When an organization requests funding, it must submit a budget, which is carefully reviewed for merit by the board. After funding recommendations are made, budgets move to the SA assembly for a vote. “It’s a lot of work,” DeSalvo said. “But you definitely see the impact.” Before being elected comptroller, DeSalvo served on the Finance Board for a semester and immediately demonstrated interest in taking on a larger

Chancellor, SU announce programs to assist victims In the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, Syracuse University is launching a number of initiatives to support and aid individuals affected by the storm. In an email sent to all students on Monday morning, Chancellor Nancy Cantor said the SU community has had the Tri-State area “in our hearts and minds,” as the region recovers from the storm. “While we empathize with victims of all natural disasters, our connection to this tragedy is incredibly close, given that the areas impacted are home to many of our students, their families, and SU alumni, friends and colleagues,” Cantor said in the email.
Traditionally, SU has had a large proportion of its students come from the Northeast, where Superstorm Sandy had the biggest effect. This year, 63.9 percent of the freshman class came from the Northeast, the lowest amount in school history. To support those affected, SU has organized several programs for members of the SU community to help, according to the email. These programs include: • Sending a truck with bottled water, ready-to-eat food and sweatshirts to the affected areas. • The previously scheduled “Dome

Assembly grants groups funding By Anna Giles STAFF WRITER
Student Association’s general assembly reviewed the Finance Board’s funding decision in about 30 minutes Monday, making one of the fastest and most efficient deliberations in recent years. More than 30 representatives from Syracuse University student organizations attended Monday night’s SA general assembly deliberations on proposed funding for spring activities. The meeting took place at 7:30 p.m. Monday in Maxwell Auditorium. One of SA’s main responsibilities is deciding how to allocate the student activity fee to the organiza-
tions that apply for it. At the meeting, Comptroller Stephen DeSalvo released budget determinations for more than 100 student organi-

Some of the organizations who were awarded the most funding include The College Republicans, which will receive $24,710 for a speaker event; First Year Players, which will receive $23,309 for its spring musical; and the National Pan-Hellenic Council; which will receive $36,401 for a speaker event. The Finance Board looks at student organization budgets and makes a recommendation to fully fund, partially fund or not fund each one. For it to be official, the budget must be approved by the assembly, DeSalvo said. The budget hearing on Monday was one of the fastest and most

LET TERS TO THE EDITOR
Progressives need to consider vote for Maffei to prevent Buerkle re-election I agree with a majority of Ursula Rozum’s stances on key issues and applaud the fact that her campaign is bringing progressive reform to the forefront of the local political dialogue. However, her candidacy is ultimately self-defeating. Progressives should face the reality that her platform will not gain enough support to actually win the congressional seat in question. Instead, it will siphon off votes from Democrat Dan Maffei’s campaign, letting incumbent Republican Ann Marie Buerkle once again eke out a victory in this close race. Rozum claims her platform is truly progressive whereas Maffei’s is centrist. Yet his voting record does not bear this out. Maffei voted to repeal “don’t ask, don’t tell,” put in place stronger enforcement against gender-based discrimination and supported the enforcements of regulation of carbon dioxide as a pollutant. He may not be a radically progressive candidate, but his stands in stark contrast to Buerkle. She voted in favor of the “Stop the War on Coal” bill, extension of the Patriot Act, the Ryan tax plan, preventing the EPA from regulating greenhouse gasses (citing cap-and-trade as a job-destroying tax), an amendment to the Clean Water Act limiting the EPA’s ability to regulate water pollution and a bill to limit loans for alternative energy startups while opening the Outer Continental Shelf to oil drilling. She has
done everything in her power to suppress any kind of reform. This is not to say third parties are unimportant distractions from the actual race between Democrats and Republicans and only divert votes from the real contenders. I believe third parties can play a useful function in American politics. The two major parties pander to whichever groups will help them get the most votes. They hold no ideological allegiances. If the Democrats see that the Greens are gaining support, they will try to incorporate green policies into their platform to draw more progressive and environmentally minded voters. All that being said, I think this tactic is effective when the distinction between the Democratic and Republican candidates is less drastic than that between Maffei and Buerkle. This election is not a choice between “the lesser of two evils” for progressives. Maffei may not be perfect, but often sides with progressives on a number of issues. Therefore, progressives need to ask themselves whether they believe that a symbolic vote for Rozum is worth the possibility of allowing the election of virulently antiprogressive Buerkle.

American Marketing Association: Coleman’s experiences make him qualified leader for SA The American Marketing Association was established in the Martin J. Whitman School of Management to give students the opportunity to learn more about marketing by providing real-world experiences and opportunities. As a senior and current president of AMA, I have seen the talent and hard work of students on this campus. Hard work is something people love to talk about, but it takes a dedicated and special person to actually live up to those words and prove themselves. Kyle Coleman has not just been a student, but has been a team player, a motivator and a leader as he became heavily involved in Whitman and the university as a whole, starting in his freshman year. Instead of sitting back, Coleman searched for ways to challenge and improve himself and, therefore, improve his campus and community. He took advantage of real-world experiences and opportunities to create what former General Electric CEO Jack Welch called “stretch goals,” which are goals that push us beyond what we think is possible. Stretch goals inspire an urgency to innovate, and innovate Coleman did. Coleman saw a gap in fundraising and awareness for cancer research on campus,
noting that the only big event was Relay for Life. To change this, he started the annual Cuse vs. Cancer 5K and proceeded to get the entire campus and Syracuse community involved in fighting for this important cause. AMA became involved in this race as a sponsor by donating money and by providing marketing and promotional assistance. It is with my unabridged support that I officially endorse Kyle Coleman for SA President. Coleman took the time to personally come and talk to the American Marketing Association about the problems he saw on campus and to explain his three-pillar approach to his campaign. He was honest, sincere and open to listen to any comments or suggestions. This is something that I have never experienced from an SA president, and it was refreshing to have my concerns heard. Coleman is extremely qualified and well rounded with four majors, leadership experience, SA experience and experience from other organizations and programs. I hope you all go vote for Kyle Coleman on MySlice on Nov. 12-15. Warm Regards & Go Cuse!

#ElectionClass encourages students to vote for class election This year I’ve had the pleasure of taking IST 500: “Social Media in the 2012 Election” (affectionately known as #ElectionClass). The class discusses politics and campaigning in the information age. One facet of the class is running a mock election representing a character assigned by the emperor/teacher of #ElectionClass, professor Anthony Rotolo. My character is Robert Lawrence, a successful Republican businessman. With the help of my campaign team I was able to mold the candidate to fit principles that would likely resonate with a college campus. Over the past nine weeks we’ve worked to push our candidate’s message, effectively debate, and publicize the class and our candidacy across campus. The race will culminate on Tuesday, Election Day, when our mock campaign votes for who will become president of the fictional “Amercia” (a nod to Mitt Romney’s spelling gaffe earlier this campaign season). While my passion for and enjoyment of the
course led me to write this letter, I’d be lying if I said I’m not trying to shill for votes as well. My candidate is a successful businessperson, someone who understands the economy on a level not seen by your typical lawmaker. He puts common sense above all and is a levelheaded, pragmatic leader. His undefeated debate record in #ElectionClass indicates his clear approach to fixing the economy resonated most with the audience. If you’d like to participate in this unique class, all you have to do is go to Hinds Hall, room 339. There, you can learn about the journey our campaigns have taken to get to Election Day, and cast your vote. A smart vote is a vote for Lawrence and Taylor. I ask for your vote because our campaign wants nothing more than to celebrate a win at Chuck’s. Sincerely yours,
Robert Lawrence aka Bob O’Brien

Delta Sigma Pi: Coleman offers leadership skills next SA president needs Delta Sigma Pi is a professional fraternity that has been a chapter on the Syracuse University campus since 2001. The fraternity’s mission is to foster the study of business in universities while also encouraging scholarship and the association of students. Kyle Coleman, a brother of Delta Sigma Pi since the fall of 2010, has remained a committed member of DSP and has continued to display the plethora of leadership skills and wisdom he has obtained from the multiple experiences that he has had on campus. During the fall of 2011, Coleman started Delta Sigma Pi’s annual Cuse vs. Cancer 5K marathon. During this time, Delta Sigma Pi was struggling to find a way to help connect SU students to the city of Syracuse itself. Coleman believed his idea of the Cuse vs. Cancer 5K run/walk would take strides in creating a bridge between the Syracuse community and the university’s student body. During the past two years, this event has raised more than $5,000 that has been donated to a local food pantry and cancer research. At the same time, it has also brought together
people from the community and student organizations to support a cause that is near and dear to so many people’s hearts. In addition to being an active brother in Delta Sigma Pi, Coleman has also been a peer facilitator in the Martin J. Whitman School of Management and a resident adviser in both Watson and Marion residence halls. Through these two experiences, Coleman has worked with diverse groups of students from all walks of life and has witnessed first hand how campus safety and segregation affect the student body from freshmen to seniors. His strong belief in raising awareness and being an advocate for our student body is why Coleman will make for a strong, reliable and effective president of our student body. As the president of Delta Sigma Pi and on behalf of our entire brotherhood, I publicly endorse Coleman as being the right choice for the future safety and unity of all Syracuse University students. Kind Regards,
Sha J. Goode

3-D printers can revolutionize manufacturing process
t’s now possible to manufacture toilets, hip replacement parts and pens from a single room. The concept is called three-dimensional printing and it may revolutionize manufacturing processes this century. Today, 3-D printers are expensive to purchase and their main application is in the commercial realm. During the past decade there have been several high-profile issues that have surfaced regarding manufacturing and labor concerns. Before the recession, General Motors was accused in a New York Times article of paying its United Auto-Worker employees $70 per hour including health care and pension benefits. These high labor rates could be alleviated once 3-D printing is fully integrated into the auto industry. Apple has had its share of problems at its manufacturing plants in China. The behemoth factories house miles of assembly lines and employ hundreds of thousands of people. Three-dimensional printing has the potential to minimize employee risk and revolutionize the process needed to manufacture complex devices. These printers vary in size, from just a square foot to bigger than a factory floor. These printers generate objects through a manufacturing technique called additive manufacturing. This means that once the blueprint of an object is ready to be printed, accurate sensors dispense a heated liquid that rapidly hardens. This process takes place repetitively and in layers until the entire blueprint becomes a tangible object. The application of 3-D printed objects is expanding rapidly as printing accuracy and technology improves. In the health care arena, hearing aid and brace companies are using 3-D printers to generate their products. Whether the product needs to be manufactured out of plastic or metal, 3-D printers are able to switch between materials in order to ensure a well-made final product. In the aerospace industries, 3-D printing is helping in expediting the manufacturing of these machines.

wayfarer love affair Fighter jet manufacturer Lockheed Martin is securing a deal to delegate 3-D aeronautical part printing to Ferra Engineering, a 3-D printing company. The application for 3-D printers spans retail, health care, commercial and governmental industries. This new printing technology is expected to jumpstart an entire industry of its own. Just this year, 3-D printing is valued globally at 1.7 billion and by 2015 it is expected to grow to 3.7 billion. As this revolutionary technology becomes more affordable and available to the public, there are many risks associated with 3-D printing. Defense Distributed, a specialized publishing nonprofit charitable organization, has made available free 3-D printable blueprints for firearms. This dilemma has put a dark cloud over the industry because there seems to be a future legislative battle over publishing 3-D objects in the public domain on the Internet. Three-dimensional printing has the power to change the way products come to market and the way they are modeled during the research stage. As this technology becomes more widely used, large-scale factories may be rethought and supply chains redrawn. If a student were to buy a sneaker from a website, it could easily be customized because the manufacturing process would only consist of a single print from a 3-D printer. The 3-D printer is far from a sexy device. It is fairly technical looking and hardly resembles any commercially made consumer gadget, but the effect of this device is sure to transform our society in the next decade.

Lit bench on Quad honors former Chancellor Kenneth Shaw By Levi Stein STAFF WRITER
Two years after the Syracuse University Quad was officially named and dedicated to former Chancellor Kenneth “Buzz” Shaw, a bench has been installed in front of Hendricks Chapel in Shaw’s honor. During the 2010 dedication ceremony, preliminary plans were in the works to build an official monument to mark the name change. “The plan was to erect a bench at the base of the Quad in front of Hendricks Chapel,” said Rex Giardine, assistant director for capital projects at the Office of Campus Planning, Design, and Construction. “It was important for the bench to be in a very prominent location. This particular step in the project started back in early fall of this year and was relatively fast-moving.”

role. Jeff Rickert, a graduate of SU and current graduate accounting student, served as comptroller before DeSalvo and immediately recognized his successor’s potential. While DeSalvo was still on the Finance Board, Rickert made an effort to show him the ins and outs of what being comptroller required — the behind-the-scenes duties, the extra work done outside Finance Board meetings. “On the backroom stuff that you have to do yourself, I worked with him,” Rickert said. “Right from when he was first elected to the assembly, it was obvious that he had something else. He has always shown willingness to do what needs to be done.” With help from Rickert, DeSalvo was able to step into the position without feeling overwhelmed. “Speaking with Jeff, he taught me a lot about what the position entailed and what the responsibilities were,” DeSalvo said. “So going into the job, I knew what they were. I really

He has been a member of SA since spring 2011, but has not yet served on the Finance Board. “One of my flaws may be the fact that I do not have Finance Board experience,” PatOsagie said. But Pat-Osagie said his experience as a leader in various student organizations has given him the necessary experience to understand how the budget process works from the perspective of the students. “I know how difficult it is to plan and organize an event with the Finance Board,” he said. “I can relate to the student organizations because I know the struggles that they face.” Pat-Osagie said students have approached him about issues regarding the budget process in the past. The realization that technicalities are the only reason many student groups are denied funding inspired him to launch his own campaign.

Donation Day,” which marks the official start of the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign, will expand to benefit victims of Superstorm
The initial stages of construction included replacing portions of the sidewalk in front of Hendricks Chapel back in late summer. The granite bench was specially ordered and the construction workers poured a concrete foundation for it, said Giardine. When the construction team was replacing the sidewalks, electricity was wired out so that the LED lights could be installed within the panels. The backside of the bench features the name Shaw Quadrangle in bold lettering. “Our intentions coming in were to dedicate a well-thought-out monument to Ken,” Giardine said. “The project is almost complete and we’re very happy with the results.” While there was certainly lag time between the dedication ceremony and the construction of the bench, the highest-quality construction
was desired, said Kevin Quinn, senior vice president for public affairs. “It obviously took some time to get from conception to design to installation, then construction. We just wanted to make sure that the monument was perfect,” Quinn said. Brenda Law, manager of design and documentation in the Office of Campus Planning, Design, and Construction, designed the bench, said director Eric Beattie in an email. The bench itself is made from a granite species from Vermont and was chosen because of its flecks of orange. It was milled and installed by the local masonry business Turner Stone Co. Recessed into the granite beneath the bench are engraved glass panels, made by local glass carver Jerome Durr, Beattie said. The panels are backlit with energy-efficient LED lights that
are controlled by photocells. The lighting color range and intensity are programmable and will be fine-tuned to provide a warm glow over the next few weeks, Beattie said. The permanent bench was installed this year, and pole banners were initially placed around the Quad in November 2010 to inform people of the new name, according to a 2010 press release. Some students admired the new bench and commented that it was the first time they were informed of the official Shaw Quadrangle name. “I think they did a great job on the bench,” said Garrett Braddock, sophomore television, radio and film major. “To be honest, I didn’t even know the Quad had an official name.”
liked the process and I liked the ability to be more involved.” While in the general assembly, even before serving on the Finance Board, DeSalvo showed commitment to the budgeting process when he created the university’s budget website,
designing a site for his uncle’s company, local janitorial firm Corporate Maintenance Systems, Inc. Today, he maintains about 40 clients, mostly small businesses that don’t have significant excess funding to devote to Web design. Growing up in the Syracuse suburb of Cicero, DeSalvo always wanted to attend SU. His father and grandfather went to SU, and he first started attending events at the Carrier Dome when he was in middle school. As SA comptroller, DeSalvo is required to serve 20 office hours per week at minimum, where he works with groups that request funding for special programming outside the approved budget. Sometimes groups come in to talk about the budgeting process, or to discuss the feasibility of acquiring special funding, DeSalvo said. But the process picks up during budget season, when the Finance Board looks at 150 to 200 proposed budgets. Budgets were due Oct. 19 and reviewed during the past two weeks. “I’m in here 13 hours a day,” DeSalvo said. “Just inputting stuff into the computer, making sure my Finance Board is looking over the budgets, getting the budgets to them on time.”
DeSalvo also oversees Finance Board budget deliberations, schedules budget hearings for groups and presides over the hearings. When a group appeals a decision, DeSalvo handles that as well. The job is an ongoing commitment, but DeSalvo does his best to maximize productivity throughout his Board, ensuring that the best decisions are made. One of the challenges of serving as comptroller, Rickert said, is providing significant funds to meet the needs of all organizations. During Rickert’s time in office, SA was asked for nearly $1 million in funding at a point when it had only $400,000 to allocate. The position requires an unbiased perspective, which DeSalvo maintains by not participating in any organization that requests funding, Rickert said. “It’s not easy,” Rickert said. “There are hard decisions to be made.

SA members that would help organizations with their proposed budget, he said. The board would be able to answer questions, review budgets and assist with application issues. The board would assist not only in reviewing proposed budgets, but also in potential marketing techniques and other tips to help ensure that the
organizations produce successful events, he said. “I know how to plan these events successfully because I have actually done it before,” said Pat-Osagie. As a member of many student organizations, including the African Student Union, National Association of Black Accountants and Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, Pat-Osagie has gone through the process of applying for funding from the student activity fee many times himself and understands the struggles organizations face when applying for funding. “I am really invested in the campus here,” he said. “I’ll have a better understanding of how student organizations handle the process.” Pat-Osagie said he also wants to constantly improve the Finance Board through monthly student surveys. Friends and fellow SA members have approached Pat-Osagie with support for his campaign, he said. “I have a very good chance,” he said. “I’m well connected on campus, share the same views as other organizations on campus and I
think students will relate to that.” Pat-Osagie’s vision for SU goes beyond the Finance Board. Born in Nigeria, Pat-Osagie is planning an event for this spring that will shine a spotlight on diversity within the student body. His plan is to throw a special event on the Quad that involves various student organizations and showcases the different cultures. “I want to open the student body’s eyes to the diversity on campus and to have the entire campus learn about different cultures,” he said. Multicultural organizations and other groups on campus will be able to perform, showcase and display their culture through talents, history and food, he said. The diversity event is just one of the many plans Pat-Osagie hopes to achieve during his time at SU. For now, he’s focused on his campaign for comptroller. Said Pat-Osagie: “I know the students, the campus, the community, and I know I can change current problems with the Finance Board.”

victims will take place at an upcoming men’s basketball game. • Those who wish to donate to the relief efforts can call the American Red Cross or the Salvation Army, or drop off checks made out to these organizations at the Dean’s Office in Hendricks Chapel.
• Any faculty or staff members, individuals or student groups interested in providing longterm support for relief efforts are encouraged to call the Office of Student Activities.

Social media usage increases during natural disasters, betters communication
By Andrew Feldman
s Superstorm Sandy raised ocean levels along the Eastern seaboard, so too did it raise the level of social media usage in the United States. William Ward, a social media professor, said using social media during natural disasters has become very common. “When you lose the power, your Internet may be down at home and your electricity may be down, but if you have a cellphone and there are any towers up, you can message over social media,” he said. “Even if the Internet is down, you can also text to publish to Twitter.”
One of the most valuable parts of being able to use social media without power is the ability to let family members know that you are OK, Ward said. He added that since it is nearly impossible to call every family member and friend, social media platforms provide a better option. Calling several people also makes emergency communications much more difficult, Ward said. “Before, everybody was trying to make a phone call and check on their relatives and vice versa, and really tie up the lines for other needed emergency services,” he said. Many Syracuse University students used social media to get updates from family.
But others, like Timothy Law, a freshman undeclared major in the College of Arts and Sciences, felt texting was still the best mode of communication. Sneha Phadke, a second-year graduate student in the School of Information Studies, texted and called family in India during the superstorm, but also used Facebook to check in on her friends in New York City and New Jersey. One of her friends from New York City lost power last Monday, but was able to communicate with Phadke and others through Facebook groups. “She posted on Facebook when she was safe,” Phadke said.
Ward said posting variations of “I’m OK” or “We’re OK” was one of the more popular Facebook posts. Helping people share information about the emergency, where relief services were needed and comforting family members were all huge benefits of social media, Ward said. Ward also acknowledged the potential to misuse social media. Some people shared false information on social media, he said. But this was only a very small percent of people. Though Ward hasn’t run the analytics for Superstorm Sandy, in past tests, 99 percent of people used social media properly and only 1 percent shared false information.
In the past, when misinformation was spread, it could take up to 24 hours to get the correct information out to the public, but on Twitter, false information is usually corrected more quickly, he said. Overall, Ward said he thinks social media platforms are useful tools in communicating during a disaster, and the benefits far outweigh the negatives. Said Ward: “Even though that’s a negative when people are sharing misinformation, the truth is coming out much quicker than if we were using traditional news cycles.” firstname.lastname@example.org

efficient, DeSalvo said. About half of the student activity fee was approved for organization funding at the meeting. Many organizations were denied funding because of minor technicalities in their budget proposals, he said. The Haitian Americans Student Association was denied $50,000 for a concert because the organization missed its budget hearing and the cost per student was too high. The Hillel Jewish Student Union was denied $33,598 for a spring concert because of mismatched event date confirmations. The National Society of Collegiate Scholars’ proposal for $18,481 for an event called “Integrity Week” was denied because the amount was out of the group’s allocated funding range based on DeSalvo’s financial tier system. The system places SU organizations into categories based on how much funding they are eligible to apply for. Student organizations are eligible to appeal general assembly budget decisions online through Orgsync. Organizations must turn appeals in by this Thursday, DeSalvo said. “I think we saw today how great of a job the Finance Board has been doing and how fair the budget process has really been,” he said. After the hearing, assemblymembers discussed how to promote SA presidential elections to the student body. Board of Elections and Membership Chair Jenn Bacolores said she hopes 30 percent of the student body will vote

The general assembly voted on funding for student organizations in about 30 minutes, making the meeting one of the fastest deliberations in recent years.
Organizations denied funding
Organizations were denied funding because of small technicalities, such as missing budget hearings, applying for funding outside of their range and mismatched event dates in their proposal. this year, which would be an increase from 26.1 percent in last year’s election. “I think with the amount of candidates we have we will be able to reach out to a lot of demographics that have probably never been hit before,” she said. Students will be able to vote for SA president through MySlice. SA members will also staff polling stations around campus, at The Warehouse and the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry’s Marshall Hall, Bacolores said. “We are trying to go to places that are very accessible to students,” Bacolores said. SA’s weeklong community service event called “Impact Week” kicked off Monday with a volunteer event at the Salvation Army. Tuesday’s event is all about getting the student body to vote in the presidential election, SA Chief of Staff Janine Savage said. In other business, SA will be providing student transportation to major cities like Boston, Washington, D.C., New York City and Philadelphia for $100 round trip during Thanksgiving break. The next SA meeting will be held Monday at 7:30 p.m. in the Maxwell Auditorium. email@example.com

Twitter and Facebook fuel political debate and discussion, and students are caught in the crossfire. Many of Ward’s students have seen material online that motivates them to further investigate the issues. Romney’s Big Bird comment inspired 135,332 tweets per minute during the debate, The Boston Globe reported Monday. Candidates now face the pressure of fact checkers and voters live tweeting during debates, and voters must learn to differentiate opinions and fact in the digital world. Social media experts, such as Ward, recognize this as the first election based in social media. During the 2008 election, Twitter was only two years old. Four years later, Twitter has gone from 6 million users tweeting 300,000 times per day to 500 million users who account for more than 400 million tweets per day, according to an Aug. 3 Newsday article, written by Ward. Anthony Rotolo, an assistant professor of practice who teaches a class on social media and the election, said he sees how new media outlets affect politics. “This is the first social media election. We talked about (social media) in 2008 because

the Obama campaign was really ahead,” Rotolo said. “What they were doing was way beyond what Fortune 500 companies were doing with social media; in fact, it is still ahead of what many companies are doing with social media.” With more than 21 million Twitter followers, the Obama campaign has gained a huge following during the past four years. Because the Romney campaign had a later start in the Twitter world, it has just over 1 million followers, but is still successfully utilizing social media, Rotolo said. “Truth is, Romney’s campaign is using many of the same tactics that the Obama campaign is currently using,” he said. The candidates use social media to do everything from gain voter support to collect campaign donations. Rotolo said he even received a direct message from Obama’s Twitter account. Situations like Rotolo’s lead social media experts to question how verified Twitter accounts judge the quality versus quantity of followers. Ward said both Romney and Obama have been accused of purchasing and accessing fake Twitter accounts to boost their follower numbers. Using social media, like any other campaign tactic, can only be considered effective if doing so makes people get out and vote, Rotolo said.
Age: 66 Hometown: Syracuse, N.Y.
“It is yet to be seen whether Twitter or Facebook can get people to the polls,” he said. Ward compared the prevalence of social media to the changes inspired by the introduction of cable news channels; the 24-hour news cycle is now the 20-minute news cycle. This means within minutes, information can be spread through retweets, live tweets and

Facebook statuses. David Rosen, a master’s student in the School of Information Studies who takes Rotolo’s class, said he thinks social media platforms have encouraged people to follow the debates. “The whole idea of a second screen is definitely happening,” he said. “People are following the debates on TV, but also following it on Twitter.” Ward said he believes the increased use
of social media has drawn many people, particularly college students, into the election who would not have been inclined to be involved without it. Chelsea Orcutt, a senior public relations and political science major who is also in Rotolo’s class, said she feels social media platforms make students more aware of political issues and that it provides numerous outlets to retrieve information from, regardless of party affiliation. Orcutt and Rosen, along with the other 123 students in Rotolo’s class, participate in mock debates and actively evaluate news sources in social media. “The class has helped me to determine what is credible and not credible,” Orcutt said. “It has helped me shape my social media consumption habits to make sure I am getting only the most accurate information.” Social media platforms are a great source for debate, discussion and information, Rotolo said. Though they may not change a person’s mind on the issues, they provide insight to questions. Said Rotolo: “I wouldn’t say social media are suddenly opening people’s eyes to the right choice for president, or something like that, but it is definitely a useful tool to try to make a decision.” firstname.lastname@example.org

dent’s trip for some time. Rosenthal said the preparation for the visit was extensive. Secret Service showed up a week in advance to prepare, he said. “When he was done speaking, he came in the room and met all of us, and we got pictures taken with him,” Rosenthal said. “That’s something that I still can’t believe happened — being able to shake his hand and look him in the eye, and he calling me by my name.” Aside from his meet and greet with President Obama, he has met former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, and fellow SU alumnus and Vice President Joe Biden. Rosenthal credits his understanding of the political process to his time at SU and the Maxwell
Syracuse University is no stranger to the electronic dance music scene, with popular artists as varied as Avicii and Calvin Harris taking the stage in the past few years. But SU rarely offers the chance to hear its own students perform EDM together on one mixtape. Enter Electro Cuse Vol. 2. Marshall Street Records, a student-run record label offered as a class in the Bandier Program for Music and the Entertainment Industries, produced Electro Cuse Vol. 1 last year, a compilation of electronicbased music created by SU students. After much anticipation, Electro Cuse Vol. 2 dropped on Sunday. “Submissions are open to anybody, current or former SU students,” said Dan Annibale, a senior in the Bandier Program and general manager of Marshall Street Records. “This year we had two alumni submissions and the rest were all current students.” Electro Cuse Vol. 2 features nine tracks by various artists, making it a mixtape in the truest sense of the word: a compilation of many artists with different styles. The genre’s die-hard fans will appreciate the heavier EDM with no vocals, like “All Aboard” by Binyamin. More low-key tracks, like “Shooting Star” by N8 ST9, might appeal to those who are newer to the EDM scene. The mixtape is only available for streaming and free download online at its website, electrocuse.com. As of right now, Marshall Street Records has no plans of selling a physical copy of the mixtape. Annibale said the reason for putting the Electro Cuse mixtape together is to promote unknown artists, so the label does not sell the music. But Marshall Street Records does sell merchandise — Electro Cuse tanks and long-sleeved shirts — to pay for the costs they incur. The shirts were sold at the mixtape release party on Saturday at D.J.’s On The Hill, and are available at the SU Bookstore. The event featured performances by four artists on the album. Marshall Street Records representatives gave away free drink koozies and the chance to sip on specially made “Electro Cuse Juice.” The idea for the Electro Cuse mixtapes originally came about last spring, when Joe Papoutsis, a senior in the Bandier Program who is spending a semester in Los Angeles, was general manager of Marshall Street Records.

Yes, he can SU alumnus gets opportunity to work with President Barack Obama after years of admiration
By Boomer Dangel
ASST. COPY EDITOR
resident Barack Obama had fans before he became the presidential candidate in 2008. Alumnus Doug Rosenthal was one of them. After watching the then-Illinois senator on “Meet the Press” in 2006, Rosenthal was drawn by Obama’s articulate speech and down-to-earth appearance. He was only a junior in high school at the time, but also one of Obama’s biggest advocates. In Rosenthal’s freshman year at Syracuse University, nothing changed. He joined SU Students for Barack Obama and was a canvasser for the Democratic Party in fall 2008. But the 2012 alumnus now finds
himself in a different role for this year’s presidential election — one much closer to the president. With a degree in political science and a history minor, Rosenthal always knew he wanted a job in politics. Rosenthal is now an operations associate at Obama for America - Virginia. In the 2012 election, he works in a key battleground state at the Virginia headquarters in Richmond. His days are long and he hasn’t had a day off in more than a month. Obama for America is the Democratic National Committee’s call-to-action campaign to mobilize Democratic voters. Working in the Virginia headquarters, Rosenthal’s days are filled with providing support and resources to the 60-plus
field offices across the state. No two days are alike for Rosenthal. He makes sure the campaign offices in Virginia have enough resources to run efficiently. He deals with contracts, taxes and anything else that could hamper other departments’ work. On one day he drove to campaign offices and distributed gas cards. On Oct. 25, Rosenthal finally got to meet his idol: the president of the United States himself. “The day I got to meet President Obama, I actually got to be a driver in his motorcade,” he said. “We got our vans, we waited at the airport for Air Force One to arrive and we got to see all the behind the scenes.” The Virginia headquarters in Richmond had been anticipating the presi-

Straight outta Compton Kendrick Lamar spins stories of youth on coming-of-age rap album By Ibet Inyang
veryone loves an album that’s so reminiscent of his or her crazy nights. Through an undeniable flow and excellent storytelling skills, Kendrick Lamar paints a picture of Compton through the eyes of a young man in “Good Kid, M.A.A.D City.” Lamar may be a mainstream newcomer from the West Coast, but he has already made a name for himself for many. At just 14, he released his first mixtape, “Youngest Head N**** in Charge,” which led to his working with West Coast legend Dr. Dre. Since then, Lamar has released five more mixtapes, worked with rappers Game and Talib Kweli and earned a huge following before releasing his first independent album, “Section.80,” in 2011. That album served as a coming out party for Lamar, debuting to a larger audience his distinctive style of poetic hip-hop. Influenced by everything from the old school gangsta tracks that came straight out of Compton to legends like Marvin Gaye, he was able to provide a flow that was hard-hitting and raw, yet smooth and slick. His latest album’s tracks highlight his talent and have hits that are strong enough to stand alone, but are best enjoyed in the short film-like package Lamar presents. The rapper
Sounds like: Compton on a Friday night Top track: “Dying of Thirst”

Release Date: Oct. 22
Rating: 5/5 decibels
seamlessly illustrates night in the life in his hometown as if it were a scene from the movie “Friday.” The story starts when a teenage Lamar takes his mom’s van out on a joy ride in a quest to find girls and nothing but trouble. In tracks like “Sherane a.k.a. Master Splinter’s Daughter” at the album’s start, and “B****, Don’t Kill My Vibe,” Lamar talks about his adolescent fervor for chasing tail and feeling good as he rides through the city. Both tracks are slow and laid-back with low, heavy beats that are perfectly suited for Lamar’s smooth rhymes. For a dose of reality, Lamar includes voicemails from his mom, who just wants to get her van back to go pick up her food stamps and his Domino’s-starving, John Witherspoon-sounding dad. Lamar uncharacteristically drinks, smokes, ravages houses and evades the police “with the homies” in “The Art Of Peer Pressure.” It isn’t until he finishes the drink in his cup in “Swimming Pools (Drank)” that true reality sets in when one of his friends is killed in a shoot-out. The skit is followed by “Sing About Me, I’m Dying Of Thirst,” a fairly somber track about the possibility of dying in the streets. Lamar sings the hook in a hauntingly monotonous voice, which complements his reflective, socially conscious flow that is abruptly ended by gunshots. In “Real,” Lamar reflects on the many lives lost and time wasted thanks to the streets and declares he is “tired of running.” In the skit that follows the song, a wise, older woman sees the gun in one of the boys’ hands and tells that they are “dying of thirst” and need to be “baptized with the spirit of the Lord.” The boys repent of their sins in unison, as if learning from the night and finally giving up such a life for something of value. I am not sure if Lamar’s mom ever got her van back, but we do know that Lamar made it
off the streets and is still representing his city. In the album’s final track, “Compton,” Lamar says there “ain’t no city quite like mine” in an upbeat tone. Just like Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ “Empire State of
Mind,” the song has potential to be an anthem for a city, and once you throw Dr. Dre in the mix, it can be an instant classic. Lamar’s “Good Kid, M.A.A.D City” not only tells a well-illustrated story of the harsh realities of life in Compton, but is a true account that will make you laugh, cry and crave Domino’s all at once. Through his relaxed flows and imagery-filled stories, Lamar doesn’t skip a beat. email@example.com

Misadventures in foreign land can lead to meaningful memories
hen making the decision to come to Istanbul, Turkey, I had to convince myself that I would be able to manage being several continents away from my loved ones on two traditionally family-oriented holidays: Thanksgiving and Christmas. Now, I’ll ironically spend Nov. 22 stuck in class in Turkey instead of eating turkey. On the bright side, though, students in Istanbul enjoyed a weeklong break for another holiday: Eid al-Adha and Republic Day, the celebration of when the Turkish Republic was officially formed in 1923. For the break, several friends and I decided to take a grand adventure hiking part of the Lycian Way — a long-distance footpath along the coast of southern Turkey. The plan was to hike and camp two days, take a two-night rest staying in a tree house hostel in the village of Olympos, then hike and camp for two more nights. What an adventure it was. We filled our lungs with fresh air and our eyes with breathtaking views, and huddled around the eternally burning flames of
going, going, gone Mount Chimaera. We skinny-dipped in the Mediterranean Sea, trekked through ancient ruins, boated over a sunken city and made several friends on the trail. Then there was the number of issues we encountered along the way, contributing to one of the most memorable parts of the trip. We stopped at a beach to set up our tents because the idea of waking up to the sound of the tide was too romantic to pass up. The tiny fire we built to eat dinner around had just started to spark promisingly. Then the sky opened up, forcing us to dive into the tents for shelter. With tired eyes, soggy tents and damp clothes, we awoke the next morning. But at least we still had the gorgeous view of the sunsparkled Mediterranean Sea.
According to the estimation of a fellow hiker whom we had crossed paths with the evening before, we had less than two hours until we reached the village of Cirali, where we planned on stopping for part of the afternoon. Four hours later: Still no Cirali, as dark clouds appeared in the sky once again. We were just about to reach the peak of a particularly brutal incline when fat raindrops wormed their way through the trees. Where the hell was Cirali? Eventually the trail we followed led us out of the woods and onto a real road, but the red and white markers we had been following became even sparser than they already had been. It was getting dark outside and the freezing rain was nudging us toward a misery-fueled hysteria. After a pained stretch of trudging on to the music of honked horns — whether the drivers beeped in commiseration or to taunt us for looking like a pack of drowned rats, I still don’t know — we were able to catch a cab to Olympos. After hot showers all around, we realized that we lost our original path and ended up walking double the distance, up much
higher inclines, toward a completely different destination than we had intended. After several days drying out and hanging around Olympos, it was time to hit the trail once again, as we tried to find the trailhead for the Lycian Way. After asking for directions from more than half a dozen people, wandering through the woods searching desperately for the red and white ribbons, and consulting our guide book again and again, we realized that even if we did find our trail, we would never make it to our target destination before nightfall. Feeling slightly defeated, but unable to deny the hilarity of the situation, we resignedly remapped our route. We still ended up hiking in the pitch darkness, but at least along a mostly flat part of the Lycian Way. As we set up our tents using the thin glow of our flashlights, our spot overlooking the amazing Gelidonya lighthouse, I couldn’t help but think how lucky we were in our unluckiness.

School of Citizenship and Public Affairs. Political analysis classes and diversity in the student body prepared him to work on the campaign, he said. Majoring in political science prepared him for all of the “moving parts” to a campaign. His experience as an intern during Dan Maffei’s 2010 congressional re-election campaign prepped him for the speed of a political campaign, he said. During Maffei’s campaign, Rosenthal was mostly doing fieldwork: ground operations and contacting voters. But he wanted something more on the operations side of a campaign. “I’ve always really wanted to be behind the scenes and not be the face of the campaign, but be doing everything to make it happen,” Rosenthal said. Rosenthal had another position with the Maffei campaign this year, but he stumbled across the Obama for America - Virginia opportunity through a job posting on a political website. The opportunity to work for the president was too much to pass up, especially for a longtime advocate. When he got a call back to work for the campaign, he deliberated shortly. But he knew it was an experience he had to jump at because he could work with the president in one of the election’s most crucial states. Being in Virginia, he recognized the opportunity to meet some of the country’s most important politicians. After the election, he wants to stay in politics and remain behind the scenes. He wants to move away from operations and move toward the communications and pressrelated aspect of campaigns. As election season winds down, the long campaign has taken its toll on the staff as a whole. Said Rosenthal: “There’s been some long days on this campaign. For the past few weeks it’s been 15-hour days at least, seven days a week. But I’d work 24-hour days if they were to ask me to.” email@example.com @boomerdangel
“Me and a small group of people, we came up with the idea,” Papoutsis said. “We saw the EDM scene kind of exploding and just felt like there should be some kind outlet for Syracuse EDM producers to get heard by the general SU population.” When it comes to choosing which tracks will make it on the mixtapes, both Papoutsis and Annibale said it was based on a general consensus.

shall Street Records voted for their favorite submissions based on the sound quality of the tracks, but mainly on whether they enjoyed listening to it. For Annibale, the most important aspect of the music on Electro Cuse is that it was created solely by SU students. Said Annibale: “The styles are so different and yet they’re all birthed right in Syracuse. Everyone that makes the music has been a student or is a student here, so they all have kind of the same inf luences on them. And you can hear it, I think, if you really play close attention to the music that’s made.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Missouri schools clash over intense rivalry By Jacob Klinger ASST. COPY EDITOR
Maryville, Mo., is covered with hunter green and Bearcat paws. The town of just less than 12,000 is fiercely proud of its Northwest Missouri State Bearcats. The same hunter green can be found just 45 miles down Interstate-229 in St. Joseph, the home of Northwest’s fiercest rivals, Missouri Western State. This week, like in every week leading up to a Northwest Missouri-Missouri Western game, the game is the talk of the town. Northwest fans bicker with Western fans and the MWSU campus comes to life in anticipation of the matchup. It’ll be the fifth meeting in three seasons for the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletic Association rivals. And this year, it’s a de facto conference championship. While St. Joseph is a city divided on the rivalry, Maryville knows no such bipartisanship. In a town of 11,972, 10,805 people packed Bearcat Stadium in 2010. “I doubt in Maryville you can survive wearing black and gold or having a Griffon sticker on because you’ll get your window broken probably,” Missouri Western head coach Jerry Partridge said. The heart of the rivalry is the schools’ proximity to each other. Western senior running back Michael Hill grew up in St. Joseph and remembers shuttling back and forth to Maryville to watch the game each year. “It’s always been blown up,” Hill said. But if location is the heart of the rivalry, then something more fundamental defines its origins.
RACE for the
Northwest Missouri State fans don’t believe Missouri Western should exist. Until 1969, Northwest was the only full college in the area. “I think there were a lot of folks, especially Northwest people that thought surely it was a waste of money, there was no way that two state universities should be built that close together,” Partridge said. It was then-Gov. Warren Hearnes’ delivery on a campaign promise to add a four-year college to the region that resulted in Missouri Western’s expansion to a four-year college. Just 19 years later, then-Gov. John Ashcroft’s administration planned to close Northwest Missouri. The plan fell through, and the rivalry has grown since. Western held an 8-7 series lead in the first 15 years, but then the game started to take on national significance as Northwest was ranked in the Top 10 nationally each time the schools met from 1996-2000. Partridge is MWSU’s all-time wins leader, but he’s never won a conference title. Northwest’s always been in the way, winning 14 of the teams’ 17 matchups. “That certainly bothers me, no doubt,” Partridge said. The rivalry also plays out on the recruiting trail where the two schools compete for the best local talent. The recruitment battle tends to play out fairly evenly according to Northwest Missouri’s recruiting coordinator and wide receivers coach Joel Osborn. Players usually pick the program they feel is a more natural fit for their game and careers, but the recruiting job is easier when coaches can point to the scoreboard. “It does give you bragging rights I guess,” Partridge said. “Any time you beat somebody and you recruit someone against them you say, ‘Hey look, we beat them.’” But MWSU’s only been able to say that once
since 2003. Western won its first game in eight years against Northwest Missouri last season, and it took a 58-yard field goal from now-St. Louis Ram Greg Zuerlein to pull off the upset of the No. 3 Bearcats. Northwest Missouri got its revenge, though, in the first round of the NCAA Division-II playoffs. Western hosted and jumped out to a 16-0 lead in front of 8,420. The home team opened up another sizable lead of 29-14 midway through the third quarter before Northwest closed the gap to 29-27 at the end of the period. Western appeared to regain momentum when Northwest missed a 26-yard field goal with 8:07 remaining in the fourth quarter. The Griffons took over on their own 20, but quarterback Travis Partridge fumbled. “It might’ve barely hit the ground, but it started rolling, they pushed Travis out of the way and got it,” Hill said. “Going through it, once the fumble happened it was pretty much like slow-motion. … You couldn’t even run towards them because they didn’t have much distance to go to get in the end zone. It’s seriously like it happened yesterday.” Northwest took a 35-27 lead and held on for the win. The loss left its mark on Hill, but he tries to forget it and focus on the next round in the rivalry. A win for Western would bring a conference title to St. Joseph for the first time ever. And for all the storylines arcing over the game itself, that’s all that matters. “It would mean we’re conference champs. That’s what it means right now,” Partridge said. “And it means the work you put in this week has been worthwhile because you got a win.” @MrJacobK email@example.com

VOLLEYBALL FROM PAGE 20
“We understand how important it is for them to fund their program,” Soderstrom said. “We’re willing to support volleyball in any way possible, even if it’s coming from our own budget.” The agreement between the programs existed before Soderstrom became the women’s assistant coach in January 2011, and he has continued to follow it. Every year, he discusses with the new club team president how the team is going to help at the games and practices. During the season, the men are relied upon for a lot of the manual labor involved in setting up women’s volleyball games. The team plays in the Women’s Building on a court used recreationally for basketball. The men’s club team, in picking up all the tape on the court and pulling out the bleachers, transforms the gym into a volleyball arena. All the women’s games are usually on the weekends, and that means the men sacrifice a few hours each day working the games. But if anything, the team sees it as a great time to be together and learn about the sport from behind the scenes. “Since I’m interested in sports management it’s a great experience to work with a Division-I athletics program,” senior Sam Knehans said. Before the season, the men were required to do a scorekeeping clinic to be qualified to work at the scorer’s table. At each game, four or five of them sit between the announcer and Syracuse
athletics coordinator, keeping track of score, points, timeouts, substitutions and the libero. For the nonconference games, the men get to work the lines, taking the place of actual officials. “We learn a lot from watching the games,” said Zachary Rosengard, the club’s president. “We could all probably become real volleyball officials if we wanted to.” When he is not working the scorer’s table, Rosengard is in charge of running the club team’s practices on Wednesday nights. From leading the run around the court to being the figurehead in the stretch circle, he is the clear leader of the club. The 25-man club is split into an A and a B team. Rosengard, along with the other captains, appoints players to either team based on experience and skill. The two teams play against each other in practice weekly, but compete separately at tournaments. However, the disparity between teams has dramatically decreased since Rosengard first joined the club in 2009. “It’s more competitive now than it’s been in previous years,” Rosengard said. “The B team has beat the A team in scrimmages before. It’s very possible.” But it wouldn’t be possible without their unity and dedication to the women’s program. That means showing up first to the games and setting up the venue as part of their game-day ritual. As the match is about to begin, the club members take their spots as scorekeepers and ball boys. “They do a great job, they are reliable and they do it in a professional manner,” Soderstrom said. “I can’t ask any more from them.”

sport of hockey for 22 years. While he admits many coaches have different philosophies, he thinks the best way to go is to have one goalie take most, if not all, of the playing time. A rotation could affect the goaltenders’ confidence. “Every coach is a little different,” Paolucci said. “I come from the standpoint of, ‘You’re my No. 1 goalie. You’re going to have a bad game, you’re going to get right back in there and you’re going to win the next game.’” In Paolucci’s view, Flanagan’s rotation is only utilized when neither goalie has stood out.
“If you get the nod one night, you get the nod and you have to be there to help the team win. And if you don’t, you got to be there to support them, support Drinkwater.”
“I think if you got a standout goaltender, you’re not alternating,” Paolucci said. “Sometimes coaches want those kids to earn that and show it.” When Billadeau and Drinkwater began their rotation freshman year, neither player was ever told it would continue for an extended period of time. Eventually both players made the adjustment and noticed this might be something they would need to get used to. “You do what you’re told,” Billadeau said. “If you get the nod one night, you get the nod and you have to be there to help the team win. And if you don’t, you got to be there to support them, support Drinkwater.” While Paolucci may feel the rotation is only because neither goalie grabbed the starting spot, Billadeau said the reason it continues is that both

have been able to play consistently well. “I think it is something that has worked for our team,” Billadeau said. “I think we’re both playing pretty well. I think, you know, just keep doing it until it doesn’t work anymore.” Drinkwater’s mother, Cathy, has watched her daughter grow with the sport of hockey since the age of 4. She’s started many games since then. She started playing hockey through the influence of her brothers, who both loved the sport. Against her parents’ wishes, Drinkwater only wanted to play hockey. Now that she has reached the level of a collegiate hockey goalie, Cathy is proud of the work her daughter has done, and actually sees several benefits in the rotation the team uses. “I think sometimes it’s good to be challenged,” Cathy said. “You shouldn’t have this expectation that you’re the be-all end-all. I think it makes you step up and work harder.” Julie Rising was one of the first players to play for the five-year-old Syracuse ice hockey program. She graduated from college after the 2010-2011 season, which was the first year Flanagan implemented the rotation. She now coaches for the Boston Shamrocks in the North American hockey academy. During her time on the team, she was impressed with both Billadeau and Drinkwater’s play, and saw nothing wrong with the rotation. “I think Syracuse is really fortunate to have two strong, talented goalies in the same year,” Rising said. “Not a lot of programs have that.” As Paolucci said, he does not see a reason the rotation should continue if someone can rise above the competition. Drinkwater currently is stuck sitting on the sideline with an injury as Billadeau has been in goal for several shutouts. She’s even taken home the College Hockey America award for Goaltender of the Month. According to Flanagan, though, this is a rotation that will continue. “We believe in both of them,” Flanagan said. “They’re both good goaltenders and they both deserve to play. We don’t want either one of them sitting down.”

Untimely mistakes continue to hold SU back in hunt for bowl bid By Chris Iseman ASST. SPORTS EDITOR
Syracuse’s frustration has returned. After two straight wins, the Orange fell to Cincinnati in a game where it made ample mistakes and failed to take advantage of critical opportunities. It’s become a recurring theme in a season in which Syracuse is on the verge of missing a bowl game for the second straight season. “I think at the end of the day what’s frustrating is the mistakes that we make, which really puts us in a tough position to win a football game and it’s happened through the course of the season,” head coach Doug Marrone said on the Big East coaches’ teleconference on Monday. “We’re a team; it’s become very tough for us to overcome those mistakes.” The Orange began its game in Cincinnati poorly on Saturday after Jeremiah Kobena
“Even with the tough outof-conference schedule, I would say the quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater, is the best quarterback we’ll face so far this season. ... We’re going to have to play a near-perfect game for us to even have an opportunity to beat them.”
SU HEAD COACH
dropped the opening kickoff, and it never got much better for Syracuse in its 35-24 loss to the Bearcats. There were plenty of dropped passes, interceptions and two missed field goals. Mistakes have cost the Orange games all season. Now Syracuse has to win two of its final three games of the season to become bowl eligible. That’s no easy task considering the Orange is playing No. 9 Louisville followed by Missouri and Temple on the road. Marrone said Monday that Louisville will be the best team SU has played so far this season. “Even with the tough out-of-conference schedule, I would say the quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater, is the best quarterback we’ll
face so far this season,” Marrone said. “We’re going to have to play a near-perfect game for us to even have an opportunity to beat them.” So far, Syracuse has shown an inability to play a near-perfect game. Cornerback Brandon Reddish dropped what almost certainly would’ve been a pick six against the Bearcats, and Ri’Shard Anderson did the same earlier in the game. Those drops combined with wide receiver Jarrod West failing to secure a near-perfect pass from quarterback Ryan Nassib in the end zone left SU to wonder, once again, what could’ve been had the team taken advantage of those chances. The Syracuse head coach acknowledged why the Orange finds itself in need of two wins in its final three games. “I’ve never really looked at it from the overall picture because you can’t. I think it distracts you from the task at hand,” Marrone said. “For me, to this point when I say frustration, I’m talking about coaches and players. We’re frustrated with the mistakes that we make.” Now, the Orange is preparing to face the conference’s top team this weekend. The Cardinals have the second-best scoring offense in the Big East with 34 points per game. Bridgewater is first in the conference in passing efficiency at 170 and second to Nassib in yards per game with 270.4. Any mistakes will surely hurt Syracuse’s chances against the Cardinals, especially against a quarterback in Bridgewater who doesn’t leave much room for error. “I just think he’s really gotten a lot better. He can extend plays and still keep his eyes down the field. He can move around the pocket and still make all the throws,” Marrone said. “I think he has a very, very good control and grasp of what’s going on.” firstname.lastname@example.org @chris_iseman

Bono continues strong play as team hopes for NCAA berth By Trevor Hass STAFF WRITER
Alex Bono’s jersey was filthy by the end of Saturday night. Between the slippery conditions and Notre Dame’s explosive offense, Bono spent a lot of time making diving saves and lunging for loose balls. Bono was met with 21 shots, the most the Syracuse goalkeeper has faced all season. Despite surrendering four goals, Bono kept Syracuse in the game late in the second half before Notre Dame went on a scoring surge to defeat the Orange 4-2. “Bono was fabulous,” SU defender Jordan Murrell said. “He keeps us firing. He made a few very good saves and kept us in it.” Head coach Ian McIntyre knew Notre Dame was a dominant offensive team coming into the game. After a sluggish first half for UND, McIntyre’s nightmares became a reality when the Irish attempted 12 shots in the second half. Bono was up for the challenge, though. Notre Dame’s Max Lachowecki fired a laser toward the net in the 75th minute. The score was 2-2 at the time and it looked as if the Irish would take a 3-2 advantage. But Bono reacted instantaneously, lunging toward his right to punch the ball over the goal. Just a few minutes later, UND’s Patrick Hodan sent a finesse ball skirting through the box. Rather than sit back and wait for the shot, Bono pounced on the ball with authority right before it reached Kyle Richard’s foot. Ted Cribley was disappointed his team allowed four second-half goals. The senior captain said he was at a loss for words after the game, yet he said the loss was not Bono’s fault. “I think we had four defensive slips,” Cribley said. “They finished very well. We weren’t quite good enough in the second half.” Cribley said Syracuse did exactly what it wanted to in the first half, but Notre Dame snatched the momentum. Rather than panicking and frantically trying to score, UND remained calm. The Fighting Irish patiently and methodically tacked on goal after goal, until eventually the deficit was insurmountable for SU. “A lot of times teams will bomb the ball forward and hope that they’ll get a goal and get back in the game,” Cribley said. “They stuck
with their game plan, so you take your hats off to them.” That impeccable execution made the night a very active one for Bono, who made four saves in the second half. “When you go to the Big East, the margin from the first to the fifth team in the conference is that slim,” Bono said. “When you bring Notre Dame in here and their RPI is 1 and they’re a top-10 team, you have to expect they’re going to be one of the best teams you’ve played all season.” As Notre Dame scored goal after goal, Bono’s temperament didn’t waver. He remained composed, despite the bright lights and the pressure of playing in his first Big East tournament game. “If you look back and you see your keeper and he’s down, everyone else gets down,” Bono said. “So you’ve got to try and stay composed and stay positive for the sake of the team, even though it’s very frustrating.” McIntyre said Bono responded well, despite conceding the four goals. He said his team got slightly too confident and complacent after taking a 2-0 lead, and said the game unraveled a little bit after Notre Dame scored its third goal. He hopes Syracuse can continue to host postseason games in the future, and that Saturday night’s game was yet another step in the pursuit of consistently generating high-intensity, exhilarating games at SU Soccer Stadium. “That was a national tournament-caliber game,” McIntyre said. “When you’re taking on a team as talented as Notre Dame, perhaps we were a little bit naive. These are the exciting games. This is why we do what we do.” Playing in his first postseason game as a freshman, Bono hopes there are many more primetime games to come in his three remaining years at Syracuse. He also hopes there’s more in store for the Orange this season, as the team has to wait until Nov. 12 to see if it will earn an NCAA bid. “It was awesome,” Bono said. “To be a part of the history was awesome. It would have been better to win. At the end of the day we have to look to ourselves for that one.” email@example.com

Highly touted forward decides to play for SU
the daily orange
By Chris Iseman ASST. SPORTS EDITOR
Brewster Academy forward Chris McCullough committed to Syracuse on Monday, he confirmed on his Twitter account. McCullough tweeted, “Cuse Babbbbbyyyy!” on his account on Monday. The 6-foot-10-inch McCullough is a teammate of guard Ron Patterson, who committed to the Orange on Saturday. Scout.com gave him five stars and ranked McCullough as the 13th-best prospect in the class of 2014. McCullough is a long, athletic forward who should fit well into Syracuse’s zone. McCullough attended Salisbury School last year, where he averaged 13.9 points per game. He also had offers from Florida, Providence, Rutgers and St. John’s. McCullough is the first player from his class to commit to Syracuse, but the fourth to commit to the program in the last month. In addition to Patterson, the Orange has also gotten pledges from B.J. Johnson and Chinonso Obokoh for the class of 2013.

2012 Net rotation Syracuse will employ goaltender shifts for 3rd consecutive season By Ryan Raigrodski
allie Billadeau and Jenesica Drinkwater are in a constant battle. Neither one has been given the starting goaltender role, creating a
rotation in net that’s atypical of most collegiate hockey teams. Despite the fight for time on the ice, their biggest supporters might be each other. “We’ve been friends since the second we’ve been here and we’ll be friends until the day we leave, and
hey are the first ones to the game. They all show up in matching attire for their pregame routine just a few hours before the match. Then after discussing who is going to do what, they break off into teams and get to work. They are the Syracuse men’s club volleyball team. The club team, however, will not be the one competing that day. Instead, it will be the Syracuse women’s volleyball team.
The men are responsible for setting up the court, working at the scorer’s table and gathering balls in between points at the matches. At most other Division-I programs, the facilities take care of such tedious tasks. In exchange for setting up and working at the games, the club team gets funding for its season, helping to cover for gym and tournament fees and dues. The funds come directly out of the women’s team budget, said Matthew Soderstrom, a women’s team assistant coach and the men’s club team adviser.

probably beyond,” Billadeau said. For the past three seasons, the Orange has rotated between goalies Drinkwater and Billadeau. Head coach Paul Flanagan did not see dominance from either Billadeau or Drinkwater when they came to Syracuse, so he decided to go with the rotation. Since that decision, they both have spent equal time in the goal. After coaching for 31 years, Flanagan has toyed with several different rotation systems before, including the
one he uses now. “I’ve had goalies that have played 95 percent of the team’s games throughout the season,” Flanagan said. “I’ve had situations where I’ve rotated three, believe it or not. I guess I’ve had seasons where the goalie that’s playing was hot, maybe gets six or eight games. I’ve also had this similar situation where you kind of look to rotate.” Billadeau played hockey at Hopkins High School in Minnetonka, Minn., where her coach, Vin Paolucci, said she
was the “backbone of the team.” She earned almost every single start and never had to worry about rotating.
