Extended Fall Break allows students to adjust travel arrangements

In the wake of the sexual abuse allegations against a former assistant football coach at Pennsylvania State University, Syracuse University Chancellor Nancy Cantor sent an email to students, faculty and staff Wednesday asking the community to be vigilant about child sex abuse and how to report it. Cantor urged students, faculty and staff to call the Syracuse Police Department, New York State Child Protective Services or even the Syracuse Department of Public Safety upon witnessing or suspecting child abuse. “Our campus code of ethics and

Break time elli Uhlberg describes the newly instated Fall Break as a blessing. “It has really helped me. Since traveling alone takes at least a day, I felt that I had no time to spend with my family and friends back home,” said Uhlberg, a sophomore fashion major from Denver. “But now I have a lot more time that I can allocate toward them.” This year’s Thanksgiving Break will be different for students and faculty. In previous years, students have had time off from Wednesday to Sunday to celebrate Thanksgiving, but this year the last day of classes is Friday, Nov. 18, and classes will not resume until the Monday after Thanksgiving. The reason for Fall Break is because of the expanding geographic diversity of Syracuse University’s student body, as more than a quarter of the Class of 2015 is from outside the Northeast. University officials wanted to extend the holiday to allow more time for travel. “We’ve always had a break around Thanksgiving time, but one of the things we’re increasingly aware of is that students are coming from longer distances,” said Thomas Wolfe, senior vice president and dean of student affairs. “Extended time would

DPS plans routine checks of South Campus during Fall Break By Nick Cardona STAFF WRITER

As Fall Break approaches, some students living on South Campus will be spending the holiday in their apartments. With that, the Department of Public Safety and the Office of Residence Life are making sure students staying on campus remain safe. “We ask that you help keep our facilities safe during the break,” said Eric Nestor, the assistant director of


Below are a few suggestions on how to remain environmentally friendly while preparing to head home for Fall Break: • Unplug all electronic devices • Donate to Ten Tons of Love Winter • Disconnect lamps • Close and lock all windows

residence life, in an email to South Campus residents. Nestor outlined the guidelines that students who are heading home must follow before leaving. To help the environment, Nestor encouraged students to unplug all devices, defrost their refrigerators and turn all lights and lamps off, according to the email. Drew Buske, the deputy chief of DPS, said there will be routine checks during the Fall Break, but students are expected to keep their individual apartments safe. He also said that students who are leaving for the holiday should close the blinds, unplug electronic devices and, most importantly, lock their doors. Some resident advisers staying for the break will play a big part in keeping the students safe during the week. Starting Monday, officers from DPS and resident advisers will

be checking in with students and making sure their apartments are safe and keeping up with the guidelines Nestor put forth, according to the email. The RAs who are staying are also going to be responsible for keeping track of which residents stay and which go home for the break — a practice that will help with tracking any suspicious activity that could be going on in the residence halls and South Campus apartments. Nestor also told South Campus residents what services will be available to them during the break. He broke down dining options, support groups and available transportation that students have the opportunity to use during the break. Nestor stressed in the email that those students who are staying need to be mindful of social media posts on Facebook and Twitter. The location


Student voter turnout breaks online record STUDENT ASSOCIATION

Student Association elections broke the record number of votes since polling became available online in 2002. Students previously only voted on paper at polling stations around campus. PJ Alampi, the Board of Elections and Membership Committee chair, said that as of 1:45 p.m. Wednesday the votes had been increasing at a rate of about 1 percent every five hours. By noon, the 22-percent mark was reached with a little more than

Occupy Wall Street news spurs debate By Casey Fabris STAFF WRITER

kristen parker | asst. photo editor MELVIN STITH , dean of the Martin J.

Stith earns spot in Ph.D. Project Hall of Fame By Micki Fahner STAFF WRITER

Melvin Stith left Syracuse on Wednesday for Chicago, where the first Ph.D. Project Hall of Fame ceremony will be held Thursday. Stith, who is in his seventh year as dean of the Martin J. Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University, is one of four business professionals being recognized for their work with the Ph.D. Project. “I feel very special by being in this class, and I feel special being a part of something that started from an idea and has grown to be so much,” he said. The Ph.D. Project, founded in 1994, is an organization that aims to increase the diversity of corporate America by increasing the diversity of business school faculty, according to its website. Stith, who is black, got involved with the Ph.D. Project when it began. He said he got involved because he noticed a lack of diversity within the doctoral community. “Something was wrong with the picture,” Stith said. Stith’s work with the Ph.D. Project helped triple the number of minority business school professors in the country, said Randy Elder, senior

associate dean in Whitman. “Our motto was if we diversify the front of the classroom, we will diversify the back of the classroom, and more students of color will start coming to business school,” Stith said. Bernard Milano, founder of the Ph.D. Project, said the organization aims to diversify business school faculty so that business schools can both attract minority students to study business and better prepare

students for the diversity of the workplace. “Principally, you can’t be producing today and tomorrow’s graduates in an environment that’s not reflective of what they’re going to experience in life or in the work place,” Milano said. Milano said the Ph.D. Project’s newly founded Hall of Fame is the organization’s way of recognizing those who have helped make the Ph.D. Project successful. The Hall of Fame ceremony is the project’s way of honoring and thanking the individuals. Milano has worked with Stith for 20 years and said he considers him a close friend. Milano said it is Stith’s willingness to give up his time and talent to help others achieve their dreams that sets him apart as a dean. “He’s a combination of a great leader and also a very empathetic individual,” Milano said. “He can sort out when a person is struggling, he can sort out when a person needs an ear, someone who will listen.” Willie Reddic, a Whitman doctoral candidate, said he relied on Stith’s listening and counseling skills early in his graduate career when he had

a difficult time adjusting to the academic setting. “I was pretty close to just deciding to leave,” Reddic said. “He stepped in there, just like a father, and said it would be all right, let’s work through this, and sure enough, I decided to stay.” Reddic said he admired the fact



The Ph.D. Project, an awardwinning program to increase diversity in management, has four inductees into its newly established Ph.D. Project Hall of Fame. The inductees are: • Melvin Stith, dean of the Martin J. Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University • Quiester Craig, dean of the School of Business and Economics at North Carolina A&T State University • John Elliott, dean of the Zicklin School of Business at Baruch College • Andrew Policano, dean of The Paul Merage School of Business at the University of California-Irvine Source:

Occupy Wall Street protesters were removed from Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan, their place of demonstration for the past two months, on Tuesday morning by police, according to an article published Tuesday in The New York Times. Mayor Michael Bloomberg said protesters were removed as a result of poor sanitation, which he felt posed risks to health and safety, and because the protesters were preventing other citizens from enjoying the public park, according to the article. The decision to remove the protesters has sparked debate among many Syracuse University students. “I’m not sure it’s the right thing to be doing because they have the right to express themselves how they see fit, but because they’re imposing on others I could see where the government would do that,” said Paige Shepperly, freshman broadcast journalism major. Lawyers, in retrieving temporary restraining orders on behalf of the protesters, brought the case to the state Supreme Court. Justice Michael Stallman ruled that protesters could occupy the park but could not bring tents and sleeping bags or sleep in the park overnight, according to the article. Zuccotti Park was the birthplace and home camp for the Occupy movement, but now that protesters have limitations on their ability to assemble there, this could have serious effects. “We’re still in the process of figuring out how it will impact Occupy Wall Street,” said Laura Brown, who is involved with Occupy Syracuse. “All of us are very interested in following news reports minute by minute.” Brown said she and fellow protesters were extremely disappointed with the way in which the situation in New York City was handled. Brown said she and fellow protesters heard rumors that extreme measures were taken, including tear-gassing the occupiers’ food supplies to make them inedible. “It makes us question a lot of different things, but one thing it primarily makes us question is whether in our country we are actually allowed the freedom to assemble,” Brown said. Brown said even if protesters weren’t able to fully reoccupy the park, she was certain the movement

Scandal at Penn State prompts questions about SU’s past Recent events at Pennsylvania State University serve both as sources of instruction and as an invitation for those of us who care about Syracuse University to consider “the state of play” here; to ask ourselves and each other the most basic questions about what matters most in a large and complex institution of higher learning. Let me begin with two assertions and then conclude with one factual account. First, what matters most at a college or university is its absolute and unwavering commitment to truth and integrity. With that, all things are possible. Without that, nothing else matters. Second, I do not believe SU’s reputation could withstand an independent outside investigation of some of the decisions and actions of its most senior administrators without suffering the kind of damage Penn State is now experiencing. Third, several years ago, a female first-year student reported to Judicial Affairs and the Department of Public Safety that she had been sexually assaulted by several varsity basketball players.

Investigation and sworn statements followed with a hearing to follow until both Judicial Affairs and Public Safety were ordered off the case and to have no further contact with the student, who was urged to get a lawyer. This was unheard of and violated the student’s rights. In place of a hearing, a fabricated “informal resolution,” to which she was not a party, was worked out among lawyers for the men, the university and the lawyer ostensibly representing the woman. For all practical purposes, she was left on her own by the university. As the student’s dean, I became involved when she consulted me about related academic matters and informed me of how she had been treated. When she told me she wanted a hearing, I offered to do my best to help her secure one, and a hearing was eventually granted. Explanations were advanced attempting to justify the denial of her rights, but they lacked both merit and persuasiveness. Now, think Penn State.

SA presidential candidate recalls reason for running: Love for SU As I was walking down the stairs of the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, a random student called out, “Taylor.” I turned around and he approached me, shook my hand and said, “I attended the debate last night, and you’ve earned my vote.” Win or lose, it is moments like those that remind me of the importance of being a student leader. As elections wrap up and I begin to reflect on the process, I’ve come to realize some of my decision-making process was flawed. I made it my priority to promote my successes, talk about my experience and focus on my vision for the future. As I sit here and reflect on what was missing, I think of the passion and dedication I have to bringing positive change to this campus; the dedication to making a difference and the love I have for this great university. I think of the love I have for bettering the experience for every

student here at SU, and how that should have been a stronger focus of my campaign. Results, experience and plans for the future are critical. But without passion and a love for making a difference they mean nothing. I regret not showcasing that love more than I did. As you’re reading this, there are less than 24 hours left of voting in this year’s Student Association elections. This offers you the opportunity to log onto MySlice and cast your vote to help make a difference here at SU. I truly believe I have the experience to lead this organization, but more importantly, the passion and desire to bring it to the next level. I encourage each and everyone one of you to log on to vote if you haven’t already.

Columnist forms opinion of Occupy movement based on actions of few This is a response to an opinion column by Lauren Tousignant, published on Nov. 2. Criticism of the Occupy movement began as soon as a dozen or so people set up camp in Zuccotti Park; and it has only intensified as thousands more across the country took to public spaces to have their voices heard. Some

say the Occupiers have no coherent message and lack strong leadership or that they fail to understand the underlying issues driving their own movement. These criticisms are unfortunate and misguided. A coherent message has emerged: the wealth of a few has perverted our system of

government, encouraging our own representatives to work toward the interests of whoever can fund their re-election. If that message has been blurred by the myriad of other injustices people face in this country, it is not a reflection on misguided Occupiers, but rather an expression of just how bad things have become in the midst of complacency. There is one job opening for every four unemployed people. Education costs have skyrocketed. New income goes nearly exclusively to the very richest. We are entangled in long-running foreign conflicts. The list goes on. A person does not need to be a mechanic to know when their car is not running properly. If our elected officials were compelled to do their jobs and fix the immense problems that plague our nation, we would not be mocked for not knowing exactly how to do so. The criticism of the lack of strong leadership is most troubling, though. When people come together, mutually agree to hear each other

as equals and make decisions by consensus after every voice is heard, that is democracy. If our critics cannot recognize the spirit of democracy, then truly there is much work and education to be done. Most other criticisms are too petty to acknowledge. If Occupiers can be dismissed as sex-crazed drug addicts, imagine the broad stroke that could paint all college students. Is every college student a bingedrinking, public-urinating lay about who is willing to risk hypothermia to get to the club looking good during the heart of winter? Certainly not. Judgments should not be cast upon a group based on the words or actions of an individual. If you do not understand Occupy Wall Street, do a few seconds of research and read their declaration. If you do not understand Occupy Syracuse, stop down and grab some of our literature.

GOP needs bold candidate to address ailing nation


n a speech in 1975, Ronald Reagan called for a Republican Party of bold colors, not pale pastels. The future president called for a party that would stand for certain values, which would not be comprised. Today is no different. Republicans need a presidential candidate who will present a sharply different way forward for our country and will stand firmly on conservative principles. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, one of today’s frontrunners and the candidate who most think will come out of the pack as the eventual nominee, has the ability to articulate conservative ideas and can beat President Barack Obama. Romney, however, is not a conservative nor does he seem to have the courage of his convictions. He has flip-flopped on a handful of important issues and has shown that he is a principled politician, not a principled conservative. The Washington Post writer George Will accurately described Romney as the “pretzel candidate” for this very reason. Romney’s campaign knows it can’t win by painting in the bold colors that Reagan talked about. It is hoping that the Republicans’ desire to regain the presidency will drive them toward Romney and his perceived electability. Electability must not drive the search for a candidate because the mere act of winning the White House will not move this country forward. The electoral tradition of picking the lesser evil or choosing between two candidates who seem too similar must end. Most Republican candidates should be able to beat Obama, who has presided over one of the worst economies since the Great Depression and has advocated for and signed various unpopular pieces of legislation. A candidate like Romney can win the presidency, but should he? Most Republicans don’t

the right direction want him as their candidate, but other candidates have so far failed at being a solid alternative. Texas Gov. Rick Perry seemed like he was the alternative conservatives had been looking for, but his catastrophic debate performances and loopy behavior has put him toward the back of the Republican pack. He has gone from a frontrunner to something similar to the subject of a Warren Zevon song. Herman Cain is on the rise, but it isn’t yet clear if he can maintain his momentum and seriously challenge Romney. If Romney is the nominee for the Republican Party, conservatives need to make a choice. They can vote for another candidate who doesn’t represent their views and is the palest of pastels. Or they can vote for a third-party candidate. Conservatives need to send a message to the establishment in the party that they won’t accept the same old candidates. The good news is that the next generation of conservatives is coming and are willing to paint in bold colors. Republicans need to make the next election not only about replacing the residents in the White House, but also about expanding conservative ideas and solutions to the problems we face. Unfortunately, the current Republican field doesn’t seem to possess an individual that is both conservative and able to unite the country around his or her ideas.

Contested race attracts student involvement The percentage of voter turnout in the Student Association elections this week is nearly at that of Onondaga County in this year’s local elections.

other guidelines call upon us to act and respond promptly in ways that create and sustain the most productive and supportive environment possible for all in our community,” Cantor said in the email. Jerry Sandusky, the former assistant football coach at Penn State, was arrested Nov. 5 and charged with sexually abusing eight young boys. That, and the firing of head football coach Joe Paterno, sparked controversy throughout the university and caused many to question the laws around child abuse and reporting it. “The recent child sexual abuse allegations at Penn State — a human tragedy that has played out on an immense public stage — remind us all of the responsibility we have, individually and collectively, to ensure that Syracuse University remains a safe place for every campus community member, or everyone with whom we inter-

Yom Kippur and Good Friday. During the first few weeks of the semester, students observing these holidays had the opportunity to notify the university of days they would be absent due to religious observance. Tiffany Steinwert, dean of Hendricks Chapel, said a positive outcome of the revised religious observance policy is the heightened awareness of different religious practices and customs among students and faculty. “We have seen many more students this year from traditions beyond the Abrahamic faith traditions (Christianity, Islam and Judaism) request an absence,” Steinwert said. “Far from restricting religious observance, the new policy has expanded and encouraged observance among students across many different religious traditions.” The extension has been well received, and Wolfe said he hopes it has a positive effect on students. The break was extended to enhance academic performance by giving students a chance to rest and prepare for finals week, which will take place two weeks after their return to campus. “Besides spending time with family, students can rest and catch up on work without having to worry about balancing class times,” Wolfe said. “When they come back, it’ll be close to finals, so we want them to renew themselves and be well prepared.” Emily Magram, a sophomore political science major, said she expects to have a less hectic time traveling home to San Antonio due to the extended break, something she is happy about. “Last year, I flew home,” Magram said. “Not only will this year’s travels be much cheaper, they will be far less tedious. I won’t have to worry about delays or flight cancellations.”

with 704. The senior class still cast the least number of votes at 572. These numbers were calculated just before the total number of votes cast was pulled. The large showing of student involvement in this election is exciting to Alampi, who said it shows SA has actually been able to reach out to students. He said this demonstration of involvement proves that students want to take part in their campus community. Because of the voting numbers, Alampi said almost one-fourth of students on campus are aware of SA. More importantly, almost onefourth know they have the power to be heard, make change and have the ability to reach out to a representative.

act on a daily basis,” Cantor said in the email. Julie Cecile, executive director of the McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Center in Syracuse, said the Onondaga County Child Abuse Hotline received more than 5,000 calls in 2010. There were a total of 9,000 children who were suspected of being abused. Cecile said the medical component of the advocacy center saw 300 children last year who were suspected of being


would continue. But she expressed concern that the events in New York City, along with those that recently took place in Portland, Ore., and Oakland, Calif., might set precedence for other Occupy locations around the country. “The First Amendment gives us the right to peaceably assemble, and the police arresting people for assembling peacefully is violating our rights,” said Tonya Bauer, freshman broadcast journalism major, in an email. “It is ironic because the Occupy Wall Street movement is protesting not only our faltering economic system but also the democratic process, and this violation of justice is just proving what the movement stands for.” The removal of protesters from Zuccotti Park has yet to affect Occupy Syracuse. Brown said she felt it was unlikely that the events that transpired in New York City would have any effect on the movement in Syracuse. Brown said Mayor Stephanie Miner has been supportive of the Occupy Syracuse movement, stopping by to speak with protesters in Perseverance Park. Brown also said Miner showed interest in assisting the protesters by providing them with supplies, such as portable

abused. Of these children, she said, 134 were 6 years old or younger. New York state assemblymen James Tedsico and George Amedore recently proposed the “College Coaches and Professionals Reporting Act” bill, which would add college-level personnel to the list of mandated reporters, said Adam Kramer, chief of staff for Tedisco. Mandated reporters are people that, according to New York state law, have to report physical or sexual abuse, whether they witness it or suspect it, to police, Tedisco said. Mandated reporters include teachers of kindergarten classes through high school classes, guidance counselors, principles, high school coaches, doctors, nurses, police and therapists, among others. Mandated reporters who fail to report child abuse can be charged with a misdemeanor and face up to one year in jail, Kramer said. Because many colleges sponsor programs for children, such as sports camps and tutoring programs, the assemblymen want to add college coaches, athletic directors, professors and other

bathrooms. Brown said she and fellow occupiers in Syracuse are organizing solidarity marches and rallies to sympathize with the protesters at Zuccotti Park and that some of the protesters from Occupy Syracuse were even planning to take a bus down to New York City to participate in Occupy Wall Street there. “A lot of the time the more bodies, the more able you are to fight the police repression,” Brown said. Though some worry about the effect these new regulations will have on the movement as a whole, other students such as Chloe Beaudoin, a freshman public relations major, believe this will have a positive effect on the protesters by further encouraging them. Said Beaudoin: “If anything, it’ll just make them fight harder because they’re being constrained in a way, and they’ll want to push more.”

Despite his strengths, there are still some things he’s working on. “It’s still hard for me to say no to people,” he said, laughing, “but sometimes I have to do it.” After being inducted into the Hall of Fame, Stith said he will continue to work with the Ph.D. Project, helping to increase minority representation within the doctoral community. “It’s incredible. I never dreamed when we started this conference that it would take on such a life,” Stith said. “I see its future as very strong.”

Transportation is also something Nestor included in the email. When students head home, there will be available buses to the airport and the train station. There will also be buses available for students to use during the break.

college-level professionals to the list, Kramer said. “We’re not trying to move legislative mountains, we just want to add these individual professions on the college level to New York state mandated reporters,” he said. College-level personnel are probably not listed as mandated reporters currently because under New York state law, a child is defined as 17 years old or younger, Cecile said. Because college-level personnel don’t work with children on a regular basis, this could be why they were left off the list. Cecile said she thinks the bill would pass easily in New York state. “I think with the Penn State scandal, it may get passed because everybody’s in the heat of the moment,” she said. Cecile said although adding college-level personnel to the New York state mandated reporters and law is important, it is disappointing that there needs to be a law at all. She said: “It’s too bad that we have to mandate or legislate individuals to report suspected abuse.”

All aboard Students at Saint Mary’s College in Maryland spend semester in docked cruise ship By Diana Pearl



group of students at Saint Mary’s College of Maryland are living life at sea, literally. The college, bordered on one side by the St. Mary’s River, is using the Sea Voyager cruise ship as a dorm for the second half of the fall 2011 semester. A group of 350 students at Saint Mary’s were forced to move to hotels because of mold infestation in two of the college’s residence halls. The mold is a result of the one of the wettest Septembers on record for the region — 29 out of 30 days of September were either overcast or raining, said Joanne Goldwater, associate dean of students and director of residence life at Saint Mary’s. “It is unheard of in the Mid-Atlantic,” Goldwater said. “We just don’t get that kind of weather here.” Two hundred and forty students live on the cruise ship, while the other 110 live in alternative on-campus housing, where rooms meant for two or three people have been transformed into rooms for three or four, Goldwater said. Students were originally relocated to three different hotels. The hotels that could accommodate numbers of their size were all more than 10 miles away. Students would go Andrew VanDeusen back and forth between A RESIDENT ADVISER ON THE SHIP the hotels and campus with university shuttles. The shuttles made it difficult for students to plan study groups, classes, extracurricular activities and time with friends, Goldwater said. Having the students living off campus was disruptive to that lifestyle, Goldwater said. “We are a residential liberal arts college,” Goldwater said. “If the students aren’t on campus, it’s not really the residential experience that they signed up for.” The residence life department’s main priority was to find somewhere for the students to live that was closer to campus because of the difficul-

“It’s definitely been an interesting experience. It’s something fun to talk to your friends about, or if you’re meeting people in the future you can say ‘One time, I lived on a cruise ship.’”

Students such as Emily Burdeshaw appreciate being back on campus and the uniqueness of their temporary housing situation. Burdeshaw, a residence hall coordinator on the ship, said she has enjoyed hearing the waves on the way to class and seeing the sun set on the river. The students are not getting the same perks that cruise-goers usually get, such as nightly entertainment, pools, spas or high-end dining. Staff transformed the dining into a large study space and computer lab and created a social space and gym. But, they aren’t living without any perks. The residents have stewards who change their linens and towels biweekly and provide laundry service as well. The ship also has a captain who oversees the operations of the ship. The response to the cruise ship dormitory is overwhelmingly positive, Goldwater said. They even had requests from students living in regular dorms to switch to the cruise ship. “Most students were just happy to be back on campus again,” Goldwater said. “Now they don’t have to miss their study groups, their

activities — they’re back on campus with their friends and faculty.” Students who were uncomfortable living on the water were given options for expanded housing on campus. Despite the positive response, Goldwater said that they do not plan on using the ship as a dorm once the mold issues are fixed, and students should be able to move into their regular residence halls at the start of the spring semester. “I don’t want to go through this ever again,” Goldwater said. “This has been really hard on our students and our staff. I would like to not have to do it, but it is a creative problem-solving venture, and if we had to do something like this again, I could see us doing it if there was a ship available.” Although students are only living on the ship for about a month and a half, they believe it will make memories that will last for a lifetime. “It’s definitely been an interesting experience,” said Andrew VanDeusen, a resident adviser on the ship. “It’s something fun to talk to your friends about, or if you’re meeting people in the future you can say, ‘One time, I lived on a cruise ship.’”

f*** it, we’ll do it live

n the past decade, a fuzzy phenomenon has liberated men everywhere from the shaving that shackles them 11 months out of the year. “No Shave November” is that phenomenon. And each fall every man can revel in the freedom and beauty of thick, disgusting beards, mustaches, goatees, chinstraps, handlebars, mutton chops, bro-staches, porn staches, Fu Manchus and unibrows. Well, most men, that is. For me, “No Shave November” is a yearly confrontation with failure. Even if I go a whole month without shaving, I end up with nothing but peach fuzz and prepubescent whiskers. With only weeks left in my college career, I’ve come to terms with the fact that I will never grace the Syracuse University campus with the glorious facial hair I’ve always dreamed of. Instead, I’ve decided to take my mother’s advice and focus on the things I can control. Like she always used to say, “Stop crying, Danny. I told you that leotard would look

ridiculous on you.” She also used to say: “Make a list, stupid.” So without further ado, here is my non-facial hair college bucket list: 1. Compete in SU Idol. For some reason, I was rejected at tryouts last year despite my stunning rendition of “Newhouse State of Mind.” Now my entire stage career comes down to my upcoming tryout for “The View.” 2. Hook up with a freshman. Gotta get ‘em while they’re easy! Err — I mean, impressionable. 3. Sign my name on the wall at Chuck’s. Granted, the prime real estate at that bar is mostly gone, but I figure there’s one spot where I could post my phone number and a giant version of my headshot: inside a girls’ bathroom stall. Then again, that could have some negative consequences. Speaking of which… 4. Get into a fist fight. I’d probably get my ass kicked, but I’ve seen way too many Steven Seagal movies not to at least give it a try. Besides, chicks dig scars. And roundhouse kicks. 5. Hook up in an academic building. It’s not that I don’t respect SU as an institution of higher

learning — I just figure the best way to leave my mark on Newhouse is with a combination of tears and an unidentified body fluid cocktail. (Back home, they call that drink “the Fersh.”) 6. Picket on the Quad. NO MORNING CLASSES! NO MORNING CLASSES! FREE THE ARCHITECTURE MAJORS! FREE THE ARCHITECTURE MAJORS! BRING BACK KFC! BRING BACK KFC! 7. Play poker with Nancy Cantor. “I see your $5 and raise you my tuition.” Or, “Full house beats a straight. Now take off your pants.” 8. Play Quidditch at the Women’s Building. For once, I’d like to pretend like I’m flying on a broom without getting any funny looks or breaking my Emma Watson action figure. 9. Hook up with a Daily Orange staffer. Anyone? ANYONE?! 10. Have a Wings flavor named after me. If it tastes anything like the drink named after me, it’ll be a huge seller among women between ages 30 and 49. Danny Fersh is a senior broadcast journalism major. His column appears weekly. If you and a friend are between ages 30 and 49 and interested in helping Danny fulfill his bucket list, please meet him for Fersh cocktails in the Newhouse TV studios.

Bill Cosby: If I told you that, I’d probably have to kill you. It’s something current that I’m bringing with me on this tour, and since I’m too afraid to test new material on people, I’ll be testing it on this tour. I’m self-conscious and not as brave as other comedians. It’s a favorite because it’s clever, but not too clever.

Have you ever regretted a joke? When I was 5 years old in the business, I adlibbed 20 minutes about something I thought was hilarious but just didn’t work. It took me a while to realize that you have to back off adlibbing if it’s not gelling with your audience. It has to work. I’m not afraid of an audience being quiet during a setup, though. I’m a storyteller, and I’m not big on one-liners, so I operate differently than most performers.

Have you ever been to Syracuse? I have played two shows there and it was marvelous. It’s great when you feel like you’re friends with the audience, and this time I’m going to sit down and make people laugh. I’ll be on the same level as the youthful college students. It’ll be swinging.

What is it like being on tour? I always, obviously, have to get from one place to another, and I’m glad I’ve owned planes for 35 years. They’ve probably added an extra 10 years to my life with how easy they make things. I get up and board my own plane instead of waiting for hours at an airport, which is such a hassle. I hate airports because they take away my nail clippers when I just want to clip my fingernails,

Which of your catchphrases is your favorite? It’s probably one from an old routine I did about changes from being single to getting used to the married life. I’d always start the joke, and people would wait for me to say it and say it along with me when I did, which is the best feeling in the world. It was: “I didn’t know if it was the seventh year or the 15th.”

Here are some of Cosby’s most famous one-liners: 1. “Jello Pudding, you can’t be a kid without it!” (1987 Jello Pudding Pops commercial) 2. “I brought you into this world… I can take you out!” (The Cosby Show) 3. “The only thing you can get into without a lot of trouble is a lot of trouble.” (Fat Albert) 4. “Parents aren’t interested in justice they want QUIET!” (Himself, CD)

Out of place Self-service, twist to staple dishes shake up classic diner feel


By Jillian D’Onfro STAFF WRITER

icking golden leaves across the sidewalk and relishing the bizarrely warm ‘Cuse weather, my dining partners and I moseyed down the street, craving greasy home fries and a comfortable spot to recall the previous night’s adventures. Mom’s Diner, located on Westcott Street, offered the perfect option. With black-and-white tiled floors, bright red walls and retro booths, Mom’s has the classic diner vibe. The joint is small and at 11 a.m. on a Sunday morning, an overwhelmingly college-aged crowd filled almost every booth. Unfortunately, only one of the tables seemed suited for a bigger group like ours, and a gaggle of young ladies already occupied it when we arrived. Dismissing the option of splitting up between two tables, we squeezed a party of six into a booth clearly made for four. One of the owners handed us menus upon arrival at the table, so we felt perplexed when, after salivating for 10 minutes over the listed options, the wait staff still hadn’t approached us. Turns out, the wait staff didn’t approach us because the wait staff doesn’t exist. At Mom’s, you order at the counter and fill your own coffee, tea, juice or whatever off to the side. Blame it on Sunday morning sleepiness, but it seemed strange

MOM’S DINER 501 Westcott St. (315)-477-0141

Hours: Monday to Friday 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Rating:

4/5 Chilies

shira stoll | staff photographer that the staff didn’t explicitly explain the system. Although the serve-yourself methodology definitely threw me off at first, it came with some benefits. I didn’t have to rely on a busy server to cure my craving for more Joe. I could walk to the front and fill my own mug the moment it was empty. Sunday mornings generally require a lot of coffee, and I appreciated being able to personally fuel my own addiction. Family-owned and operated since 2003, Mom’s Diner adds a Middle Eastern touch to mainstream meals. Take, for example, my order: Mom’s Spicy Sunrise. Listed on the menu as a specialty, the Sunrise brings a flavorful twist to the average eggs, meat, home fries and toast breakfast. “Mom” added a signature spice combo, which included curry and hot chili paste, to my eggs over easy. The result was delicious. I usually end up pouring liberal doses of generic hot sauce onto my eggs anyway, so this unique spiciness cinched my affection for Mom’s. The prominent curry fl avor didn’t feel too foreign. The thick rye toast wasn’t as overly buttered as I often fi nd it at other diners, and the perfectly browned home fries had enough grease to cure a hangover but not enough to make me feel disgusting. Chopped into small pieces, the potatoes held a satisfying crispness, but the sausage tasted ordinary albeit salty and good.

Besides the “Spicy” menu items — Mom’s also offers the Spicy Sub Slam, the Spicy Omelet, and the Spicy Eggs and Toast — another specialty stuck out on the menu: Mom’s Homemade Lebaneh. This order brought a unique spin to another breakfast staple — a sesame bagel topped with a homemade yogurt cream cheese spread, garnished with dried mint and drizzled with olive oil. A self-proclaimed yogurt sauce enthusiast, I loved the yogurt cream cheese with its bitter edge and customary lightness. However, casual tasters, be warned: One of my roommates, who doesn’t share my yogurt sauce obsession, thought the combo tasted strange. We devoured our hearty feasts, ultimately deciding the food was pretty damn good. However, even though the portions weighed heavily on our plates, the prices seemed a bit steep for diner food. My Spicy Sunrise cost $6.99 compared to the $3.99 special at my local diner back home. Because almost all of us had ample leftovers, smaller portions would have been well worth a price reduction. Instead of waiting around for a check, we hopped in line at the front counter and expedited our pleasant walk home. For those searching for a no-frills diner experience, Mom’s provides a delicious, walkable option that offers all the breakfast classics with some interesting twists.


From the kitchen of Mom’s Diner, the owners’ daughter, Eva Essi, brings you a crowd favorite: Pop’s Omelet.

What you’ll need: • 3 Eggs

• A dash of salt and pepper • 1/2 teaspoon of curry • 1/2 hot chili paste (more or less depending on how spicy you like) • 1 tablespoon of finely chopped parsley • 1 tablespoon of diced onion • Sautéed mushrooms (for filling) Whisk together and pour into heated skillet with a teaspoon of butter or oil. Let the egg mixture cook for several minutes, frequently stirring with a spatula until the concoction solidifies. Eat with your favorite toast and potatoes on the side!

league for a long time, so it’s a great learning experience and a great way to stay in shape and on top of your form.” Rautins said other Syracuse guys like Wes Johnson are traveling around the country and playing in pro-am or charity games. Former SU star Carmelo Anthony recently announced he plans to host an all-star charity event in the Meadowlands’ Izod Center, according to an Oct. 20 New York Post article. Some stars already committed to participate in the game include Lebron James, Amar’e Stoudemire, Dwyane Wade and Chris Paul, according to the article. Although most SU players are in different cities at this point, many of them were right in Syracuse, using the Carmelo K. Anthony Basketball Center as a home base for summer workouts. Rautins, along with former players Johnson, Jonny Flynn, Eric Devendorf, Demetris Nichols and Terrence Roberts, scrimmaged with current Syracuse players almost every day in the summer. Rather than training with their NBA teammates, they were training with the current Orange roster. Current SU forward James Southerland said it made him feel like he was a freshman again with those guys around playing pickup games. And although Southerland is now a junior, he knows he still picked things up from the former SU players. “Even when we’re just playing pickup, they were always teaching us things,” Southerland said. “Wes would always tell me how to cover man-to-man, Andy always telling me keep staying low, running through screens and just making sure you’re shot always falls. They always go hard, and that shows you they’re a difference

between the level in college and the NBA.” Freshman Michael Carter-Williams said Johnson and Nichols gave him some advice while they were in Syracuse during the summer. After being a star in high school, he comes off the bench for teammates Scoop Jardine and Brandon Triche this season. He said he

“That’s our life. That’s what we enjoy doing. It is a long season of 82 games. It does get a little repetitious at times, but you know it’s what we love to do, and I don’t think we’d rather be doing anything else.” Andy Rautins


was better prepared for this year because of their tutelage. “Every day I think of what they told me because they made it, and I just want to make it just like them,” Carter-Williams said. For some former players competing in the NBA Development League or overseas, the lockout hasn’t affected their ability to continue to play professionally. Devendorf was recently drafted by the Idaho Stampede of the NBADL, which is not affected by the lockout. Devendorf is currently preparing for training camp and said though he might not be playing on the biggest stage, it is comforting to know he is playing in some organized league.

“It feels good,” Devendorf said. “I’m ready to play. I’m ready to get going. I know those guys feel the same way, so I’m just happy that I have the opportunity to play somewhere.” For former players Arinze Onuaku, Roberts, Nichols and Darryl Watkins, that opportunity is overseas, associate head coach Bernie Fine said. Rick Jackson, who was not drafted by an NBA team in April, is also playing in Europe. Rautins doesn’t consider that a viable option just yet, though. He said to consider going overseas, the entire season would have to be canceled. And with how things are going, that outcome looks more and more likely. Michael Veley, chair of the SU sport management department, said on Monday that he doesn’t see the players or the owners budging in their demands. As a result, he said he wouldn’t be shocked to see the season canceled. Sport management professor Rick Burton agrees. Because the players union decertified, the time frame to get a deal done will be pushed back. “Going with the most up-to-date information, if this says to me the players have rejected the deal, my sense is we’re not going to have basketball for a while,” Burton said Monday. With each day the lockout continues — currently at 140 days — frustration grows among players who just want to get on the court. For Rautins, he just wants to get back to his routine from a year ago with the Knicks. Though he essentially keeps the same schedule out in LA, he said two major things are missing from those pickup games. There are no fans in the bleachers. And there is no paycheck waiting for him. “It’s tough. It’s really frustrating,” Rautins said. “Everybody’s really opinionated. Everybody got their views. Is it the owners’ fault, is it the players’ fault? Who’s being more stubborn? But at the end of the day, we just want to play.”

Colgate might stand a better chance in football.



Jim Boeheim has as many national championships as Matt Langel does career wins. No brainer.






SU scored 98 on Tuesday against Albany and 100 against Colgate last year. Let’s raise the bar.

eim ay, Jim Boeh Happy Birthd


Jardine sat from the 18:22 mark of Monday’s game all the way until there was 9:36 remaining in the first half. In that time, Waiters and Triche thrived at the two guard positions. In that span of 8:46, Waiters and Triche combined for 14 points, four assists, two steals and a block. “We played pretty well together,” Triche said after Monday’s game. “We both got each other shots. When he gets in, he’s able to create attention, which allows me to space out.” Triche said he assumes more of the point guard role with Jardine off the floor and enjoys having the ball in his hands, as opposed to playing off it. That leaves Waiters with the opportunity to slash to the basket and become a focal point for the opposing defense. Waiters finished with a team-high 17 points Monday, while Jardine was held scoreless. “Dion came in tonight, and he was good right away,” Boeheim said. “He came out because he tried a horrendous shot. Then when he went back, he was good. Last year, he would have been pouting on the bench and probably wouldn’t have gone back in. He’s learning, he’s getting better at that. He’s really good. He’s a really good player.” Against Albany on Tuesday, Jardine made it to the 14:40 mark before Boeheim pulled him out. Waiters and Carter-Williams held down the two guard spots for the next few minutes and were again effective. They worked together on one possession to easily break the Great Danes press. And when Carter-Williams crossed midcourt, he slashed into the lane and threw a perfect lob pass to Fab Melo for an easy layup. Carter-Williams blocked a shot, grabbed

Jardine has played 18, 15 and 16 minutes in each of Syracuse’s first three games. Brandon Triche and Michael CarterWilliams have seen lots of time at the point.

Venezia appears to be Colgate’s top player, as he scored 22 points and hit four 3s in the Raiders’ season-opening win over Binghamton. Triche is just 2-of-10 from 3 this season.

Joseph poured in 19 points against Albany on Tuesday and looks healthy so far. He should have a size and athleticism advantage over Moore.


The Raiders were picked to finish sixth in the Patriot League preseason coaches and sports information directors poll. Colgate won just seven games and finished seventh in the eight-team league last year. Bucknell was picked to win the conference.

Melo has been solid in all three games for SU, contributing both offensively and defensively. Pascale picked up four fouls in nine minutes against Binghamton.

two rebounds and handed out an assist in a 3-minute span. “We found the open man,” Carter-Williams said after the Albany game. “We just did our job that we were supposed to do. … I play a lot with Dion in the backcourt. In practice I play a lot with him.” Jardine rebounded with a decent seven-point, five-assist effort against the Great Danes on Tuesday, but he is third-best among the SU guards in terms of overall production through three games. Waiters and Triche are averaging 13 and 9 points per game, respectively, while handing out 12 and 10 assists each on the season. Jardine lags behind with 4.7 points per game and only nine assists. He hasn’t played the role of a starter so far this season. Triche has been taking on more of that responsibility. “I become more of a point guard (with Jardine out),” Triche said. “I kind of like the ball being in my hands a little bit more. I feel more comfortable playing on the ball than off the ball.” Jardine left the floor with 5:26 remaining in the first half against Albany. From that point forward, Triche and Waiters scored or assisted on every Syracuse basket for the rest of the half. And Waiters showed a bit of flair unseen from Jardine all season. When Great Danes guard Mike Black dribbled into the heart of the 2-3 zone, Waiters blocked the shot and corralled the loose ball. He turned up court and went coast-to-coast for a layup, making use of an ankle-breaking crossover to shed the final Albany defender. “I’m looking up before I even get the ball. Then when I get it, I just go,” Waiters said. “… If I see them cheating a little bit over, I’m going to go over the top of them. But if I see them setting up for a charge, I’m going to get into the paint, penetrate and dish.”

Despite crushing loss, Syracuse proud of accomplishments By Stephen Bailey ASST. COPY EDITOR

The fate of Syracuse’s season was out of its hands as Maryland lined up for a penalty corner late in overtime. Only allotted three defenders per overtime rules, the Orange was outnumbered. The Terrapins just had to execute on the play to score and advance to the final four. After Katie Gerzabek swung the ball into

Harriet Tibble atop the shooting circle, the junior back launched it past the undermanned SU defense and into the net. “There’s just more spaces open,” junior back Iona Holloway said. “Maryland had a very strong, straight strike in regular time, and so in overtime they have more spaces, and the girl just rocketed it into the corner. And a well-executed, straight strike is always going to go in.”

The score brought No. 3 Syracuse’s (19-4, 5-1 Big East) season to an abrupt end, falling in the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament for the third consecutive year. But for a team that dominated its regular-season schedule and won the Big East tournament by defeating rival No. 5 Connecticut, the season was still a successful one. After a pair of early-season losses to No. 1 North Carolina and No. 2 Old Dominion, the Orange reeled off 11 straight wins, including five over ranked opponents by a total margin of 57-9. For Holloway, there was never any doubt that the team was a national contender. “I think that to say that we didn’t have success would be really putting our team down of what we did achieve,” Holloway said. “We had a really good regular season. We competed very well with top teams in the country.” One of those teams was Connecticut. The Huskies defeated SU 3-2 in overtime Oct. 23 to hand the Orange its first loss in a month and a half. But just two weeks later, in the Big East tournament championship game, Syracuse seized its vengeance. The Orange scored three times in the first 18:59 of the game to build an early lead. And Holloway and fellow back Amy Kee shut down UConn’s star forward Anne Jeute to preserve a 3-2 victory in the second half. “We beat UConn on our field to win the Big East championship, and we played a brilliant game that day,” Holloway said. The Orange followed up with another impressive performance in the opening round of the NCAA tournament. Against Richmond, senior forward Heather Susek tallied the only two goals of the game, raising the Big East Co-Offensive Player of the Year’s season total to 19. She and junior forward Kelsey Millman tied for the

team lead in scoring, dramatically improving from last season when the pair combined for 11 goals. “I think performance-wise, individually looking back it was a successful year,” assistant coach Natalie Barrett said. “I think a lot of people made great strides. Players who didn’t have a lot of experience in the past stepped up, got some good experience.” Freshmen Jordan Page and Lauren Brooks were two of the young players who contributed for the Orange. They combined for nine goals and shined in crucial victories. Brooks knocked home the initial goal in both of SU’s Big East tournament victories and earned Most Outstanding Player for the tournament. Page assisted on Susek’s second goal against the Spiders to seal the NCAA tournament opening-round victory for SU. But Syracuse fell short against the Terrapins. Millman scored in the 63rd minute to tie the game 1-1, but SU was unable to score in the remainder of regulation and overtime, falling when Tibble scored in the 84th minute. “It was heartbreaking, honestly. It was a heartbreaking loss,” Barrett said. “To see the seniors collapse, upset about ending their career, and to see the rest of the girls walk off the field, it’s just one of the hardest things as a coach to watch, knowing that their season’s ended and for some of them their career’s over.” Holloway said the team fought valiantly for all 83-plus minutes and that it was an improvement from when the Orange competed “horribly” last year, when it was eliminated by Ohio State. When Tibble blasted that shot, there was just nothing SU could do to stop it. “We played a really good game, and unfortunately, they scored before we did in overtime,” Bradley said. “We were two even teams.”


Syracuse went 3-1 in its postseason games this season. The Orange won the Big East tournament for the second consecutive year by beating Villanova and Connecticut. But after a first-round win over Richmond in the NCAA tournament, SU fell to Maryland in the quarterfinals to end its season. Here’s a look at Syracuse’s four tournament games: GAME

Hall looks to carry breakout opening game through year By Chris Iseman STAFF WRITER

While Carmen Tyson-Thomas stood at the podium speaking to reporters following Syracuse’s game against Long Beach State on Sunday, Elashier Hall stood off to the side wearing a look of embarrassment. After watching her teammate have a career game, Tyson-Thomas heaped praise onto Hall, causing a bit of an uncomfortable feeling. After scoring 20 points and notching 11 Who: St. Francis (Pa.) rebounds, though, Hall Where: Carrier Dome deserved the adulation. When: Friday, 7 p.m. “Lacey’s always had that style,” TysonThomas said. “But because of our roles, she’s been more on the outside, but now she needs to show her versatility. She’s more inside-out, and we both play the same. We go after the ball, we shoot inside, we go outside. We both have more freedom now. We have new roles.” In Syracuse’s season opener, Hall ran the floor on both offense and defense. She drained quality shots from the perimeter, scored from the inside and was an unflappable force in stifling the 49ers scorers. Though junior center Kayla Alexander ascended to a more established leadership role and the departure of Erica Morrow and Tasha Harris from last season stole the spotlight during the preseason, Hall’s role as leader and consistent scorer flew under the radar. But Hall pushed her name right back into the center of attention against Long Beach State with an offensive outburst. She also was a key component to the Orange’s new pressure defense, notching five steals from the 49ers. Hall’s aggressiveness was on full display. Syracuse (1-0) is going to rely on Hall throughout the year, and she’ll get a chance to prove she’s capable of a repeat performance on Friday night when SU plays St. Francis (Pa.) (0-2) in the Carrier Dome at 7 p.m. And after his team’s 81-42 thrashing of Long Beach State, Syracuse head coach Quentin Hillsman couldn’t have been happier with Hall’s performance in particular. “I thought Lacey played really well. Obviously, having 20 and 11 was really big for her,” Hillsman said. “I thought she played a really good game for us and was at the top of our press, played strong and played aggressive.” Just one season after averaging 9.8 points per game and 5.3 rebounds per game, Hall more than doubled her totals in both categories on Sunday. Though it was only one game, her teammates said Hall has the ability to continue that type of performance, especially because of the Orange’s new, up-tempo style of play. In the absence of Morrow and Harris, Hall said she understands she needs to elevate her own game to help the team absorb the losses.


“Obviously, having 20 and 11 was really big for her. I thought she played a really good game for us and was at the top of our press, played strong and played aggressive.” Quentin Hillsman SU HEAD COACH

And though the point guard responsibilities are likely going to split between sophomores La’Shay Taft and Rachel Coffey, with transfer Shanee Williams occasionally stepping in, Hall could also be used in that role. Before the season started, Hillsman said at the team’s media day that Hall had spent some time practicing at point guard. And that’s the reason Hall said she’s focusing on taking over a leadership position and being more of a weapon on the floor. “I think we have new roles this year,” Hall said. “Not having Tasha and not having Erica, we really have to step up. I’m a junior, I can’t just expect other people to get it done. I have to get it done. I have to lead my team as well.” In SU’s game against Long Beach State, three of Hall’s five steals resulted in seven points, including a 3-pointer from Taft. When she wasn’t pressuring the 49ers on defense, Hall was sinking shots from the arc, one of which came after the 49ers hit a jumper to come within six. Just nine seconds later, Hall drained a 3 to open up the lead once again, continuing to deflate the 49ers’ comeback hopes. Hall finished 6-of-10 from the field Sunday. She was more aggressive going to the basket and was a force on defense. And after seeing that type of performance once, Tyson-Thomas said it’s safe to expect to see it plenty more times this season. “She’s a more aggressive scorer now,” TysonThomas said, “and she’s taking her leadership role to a new level.”

A year ago, last Saturday’s game between No. 4 Oregon and No. 8 Stanford would have decided the Pac-12 conference champion. Both teams entered the game with unblemished conference records and national title aspirations. But when the conference expanded to 12 teams for this season, the league was divided into two separate divisions, and a championship game was created. The new setup changes the mentality coaches and teams have taken after losses this season. “I think it’s something that we all need to get used to,” Stanford head coach David Shaw said during the Pac-12 coaches’ teleconference Tuesday. “It’s a different feeling losing that game because a year ago, without a conference championship game, you lose that game and you know you’re not conference champions. Now, you lose that game and you say, ‘We’re not in the championship game.’” After Utah and Colorado joined the Pac-12 this season, the conference constructed the North and South divisions based on geography. The six teams from the North encompass northern California, Oregon and Washington, while the six in the South cover southern California, Arizona, Utah and Colorado. The winners of each division will square off in the Pac-12 championship game Dec. 2. But in the first season with the new setup, the two best teams in the conference will not face off in that game. Even though the Cardinal and Ducks have emerged as the class of the conference through 11 weeks, only one will have a shot to take home the title, as both are in the North Division. After beating Stanford 53-30 last weekend, Oregon is in the driver’s seat. The Ducks simply need to avoid losing one of their next two games against Southern California and Oregon State to clinch a spot in the title game. Some fear the configuration of the league does not strike a competitive balance. Still, many coaches in the conference stand behind the setup, saying there’s no reason for concern because the success within the conference will spread out over time. “I think you’ve got to let it play out,” Colorado head coach Jon Embree said during the teleconference. “And I’m sure the teams in the South will improve with what they’re doing, and shoot, anything can happen in a

throughout his coaching career. He served as an assistant coach at Colorado when the Big 12 conference was formed in 1994. He said that early on the conference title would often come down to the matchup between North Division members Colorado and Nebraska even though there was still a championship game to be played. But since then, the face of the conference has continued to change. And the same will likely be true with the Pac-12 conference down the road. After one season it’s impossible to gauge the success of teams within the Pac-12, but Embree knows that in college football nothing is certain. “College football is cyclical, and I don’t think it’s a case of rushing to judgment whether this is the best scenario or not,” Embree said.



major conference is nothing new. Louisiana State and Alabama are both in the Southeastern Conference’s West Division. And both have been the class of the SEC and the nation this season. The situation with Oregon and Stanford is no different. “I think sometimes it’s going to happen from year to year, maybe the two perceived best teams are in the same division,” Riley said. “I think it’s happening right now in the Southeastern Conference probably.” Riley said it is hard for anyone to raise an issue with the way the divisions were organized. He said the power balance of the divisions will rotate. Embree has experienced similar trends


one-game deal.” Though anything could happen in the championship game, the gap between the North and South has been huge. The North Division has reigned supreme over its counterpart this season. Arizona State, UCLA or Utah will serve as the South Division’s representative in the championship game by virtue of the two-year postseason ban against USC. Arizona State and UCLA have far-from-perfect 4-3 records in conference. Washington has an identical 4-3 record, but it was eliminated from the title race a few weeks ago because powerhouses Stanford and Oregon are in the same division. Oregon State head coach Mike Riley said the dominance of one division over the other in a

Living in limbo

Former SU players stuck waiting for NBA lockout to end

n a typical game day, Andy Rautins woke up at around 8:30 a.m. and jumped on his elliptical in his New York City apartment. The New York Knicks guard then left his place in the afternoon to get to Madison Square Garden for shootaround and an intense pregame workout. After his workout, he jumped on

a bike until it was game time. The Knicks played whatever team came to MSG that night in front of raucous crowd. Win or lose, the players earned their paycheck. “That’s our life,” Rautins said. “That’s what we enjoy doing. It is a long season of 82 games. It does get a little repetitious at times, but you know it’s what we love to do, and I don’t think we’d rather be doing anything else.”

wo minutes, two bad decisions and a seat on the bench. That was how Monday’s win over Manhattan began for starting point guard Scoop Jardine.

But with the NBA lockout still ongoing, Rautins and six other former Syracuse players have been forced to deviate from their everyday schedules. As of Tuesday, the NBA formally told all teams games were canceled through Dec. 15. The players union disbanded, and the players filed a class-action antitrust lawsuit against the league. Without a season at this point, the players have had to search for other

options to play basketball. Some have traveled the country, playing in exhibitions games. Others who weren’t signed before the lockout have gone overseas. For many of them, the lockout even brought them back to their college roots to keep playing the game. Rautins is currently in Los Angeles, working out with professional players like Blake Griffin, Landry Fields, Corey Maggette, O.J. Mayo

and Darren Collison, among others. The former Syracuse guard said there is a hotbed of pros in LA at this time and scrimmaging against each other is something that takes place on a daily basis. And while the games are meaningless, everyone competes at a high level. “These guys are all stars in their own right,” Rautins said. “They’re great players. They’ve been in the

Enter Dion Waiters after 1:38 of play. “If the guy in front of him makes those kind of plays, he’ll get in there early,” Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said after Monday’s game. Jardine posted two subpar performances in a pair of SU (3-0) wins this week, both times giving way to a much more effective Dion Waiters. The sophomore guard has been joined

by Brandon Triche and freshman Michael Carter-Williams to form a trio that has outperformed Jardine thus far. And through three games in 2011, the fifth-year senior is averaging the fewest minutes of the four guards in No. 5 Syracuse’s rotation. Boeheim said the nonconference schedule provides chances for the team to learn to play as a unit, and Jardine will have an opportunity to shake off a slow start to the season Saturday against Colgate (1-1) in the Carrier Dome at 4 p.m.
