‘IF YOU WANT LACROSSE, YOU COME TO ONONDAGA’ Administrator unites Onondaga Nation, SU with lacrosse movie By Shelby Netschke



eal Powless was born with a purpose: to be heard. His Native American name translates to “his voice is heard among the people,” a phrase that has defined his life. Months ago, he came across the opportunity to work on the Native American lacrosse movie “Crooked Arrows,” which was rumored to be riddled with cultural inaccuracies.

When he got the job offer, he wasn’t sure what to do. Powless is affiliated with the Onondaga Nation and is also the assistant director of the Native Student Program at Syracuse University. If Powless signed on, he worried it would hurt his own reputation with those organizations. But Powless felt it was his duty to spread the correct message about Native American culture, so he signed on. Powless grew up on the Onondaga

Theater as part of their nationwide winter tour. Page 15

luke rafferty | design editor NEAL POWLESS, assistant director of the Native Student Program at SU who is also affiliated with the Onondaga Nation, decided to work on the ‘Crooked Arrows’ movie in hopes of correcting stereotypes. Reservation, where he said, “lacrosse is part of our heritage and our culture.” He played professionally for six seasons, was a three-time All-American and played in the World Lacrosse Championships in 1994, 1998, 2002 and 2004 for the Iroquois team. But lacrosse is far more than a sport in Native American culture. It’s a “medicine game,” or a spiritual healing game, and is still played in this tradition every year on the reservation. “In this area, it’s very important to our identity and who we are,” Powless

said. “It’s another way of sharing our culture.” Though different versions of the game have been played throughout Native American history, the field version that’s now played internationally originated with the Iroquois people. So, when filmmakers looking to create a Native American lacrosse movie had trouble with their audition process, they went back to lacrosse’s Onondagan roots. That’s where they found Powless. Producers arrived at a lacrosse practice at the Onondaga Nation Arena

and started talking to Powless on the sidelines. He gave them tips about lacrosse from a Native American perspective and also suggested players to keep an eye on. “I was pointing out guys that not only had the skill, had the look with the long hair and the braids, but also understood the culture and heritage of what the sport meant,” Powless said. “Sure enough, these guys ended up with speaking roles.” After helping find actors, Powless was offered a job with the movie. But before getting involved, he decided

A haunting performance

josh ocean, lead singer for indie-rock band Ghost Beach, croons as the opening act of Wednesday’s Bandersnatch Music Series Concert. The duo opened for indie band Walk the Moon in the Schine Underground. The concert was the third consecutive show that sold out for University Union, and was the second Bandersnatch show of the semester. About half the audience painted their faces to match one of Walk the Moon’s music videos. Walk the Moon ended its headlining tour with its show in Syracuse.

Onondaga County reported flu cases pass 2009 record By Michael Hacker Staff Writer

The flu is spreading throughout Onondaga County at the fastest and most prevalent rate since the 2009 swine flu. The number of lab-confirmed cases in Onondaga County rose to 210 last week, up from 95 cases the week before, reported The Post-Standard. But many people who have the flu

do not seek treatment, so this number could be substantially higher. In 2009, the number of reported cases in Onondaga County exceeded 350 in a single week, reported The PostStandard. Kathleen Van Vechten, nurse practitioner at SU Health Services, said Health Services has only seen a few cases of confirmed influenza on campus at SU, but stressed that this

could change at any time because the flu is very contagious. This year’s flu season started earlier than usual and the virus is spreading quickly. The number of flu cases in Onondaga County has doubled every week since October, reported The Post-Standard. There has been a significant increase in flu activity in the United States in the past two weeks. The

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has declared Dec. 2-8 National Influenza Vaccination Week and is urging people to get vaccinated against the flu, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website. Van Vechten urged students to come in and get vaccinated. SU Health Services has held 12 flu clinics see flu page 13

By Carrie Eager Contributing Writer

In a small room in Drumlins Country Club, donated items from all over the world are packed into stacks of numbered boxes. These items will all soon be part of the Sport Management Club’s auction to benefit Special Olympics New York. The club’s eighth annual Charity Sports Auction will take place at the

Carrier Dome in the backcourt during the Syracuse Orange basketball game against the Monmouth Hawks on Dec. 8. In addition, the club will hold an online auction from Dec. 3-16 with similar items that will also benefit the Special Olympics. The Sport Management Club’s goal is to raise $40,000 so it can fund the seasons of 100 Special Olympics athletes, each of which costs $400,

said Steve Kozar, chairman of the event. Kozar said he thinks this auction will be able to surpass last year’s $30,444. “It is a cool, attainable goal,” he said. “We wanted to help out 100 people so that we can say these 100 people were specifically helped out from us.” All the proceeds from the auction

Syr Bazaar is often referred to as Syracuse University’s own spinoff of, an online retailer focused on selling unique handmade and vintage goods. Yet student founders Emelia Natalicchio and Gianna Foltz believe their organization offers products that are closer to home. Syr Bazaar is an online marketplace that features art created by SU students, alumni and professors. Founded in May 2012, Natalicchio and Foltz began the venture after receiving an award from the Raymond von Dran Innovation and Disruptive Entrepreneurship Accelerator Entrepalooza contest, Foltz said. “Originally, we went by the name Campus Bazaar with the intention of offering our services across all college campuses,” Natalicchio said. “We later scaled it down to Syr Bazaar to begin with a smaller group of customers.” The organization featured its first on-campus pop-up shop on Dec. 5 in Marshall Square Mall’s IDEA Spot. The event continues through Dec. 6, and showcases jewelry, accessories and artwork made by SU students. A second pop-up shop will take place on the Quad sometime later this year, Foltz said. Syr Bazaar had a temporary shop open at the Tech Garden’s Student Sandbox downtown, where businesses are given an opportunity for a trial run, but now the company is moving toward marketing more heavily on campus. Foltz said the ultimate goal is to return back to the original plan of expanding to other universities under the name of Campus Bazaar. “What I liked about Syr Bazaar was that it was very high end and design centric,” said Kristin Phillips, Syr Bazaar intern and SU student. “There’s a lot of freedom with startup companies like these, so when I get crazy ideas, everyone here is always open to them.” Phillips began as an intern for the organization two months ago when she received an email from SU’s College of Visual and Performing Arts detailing the position. She said she plans to start selling some of her own products through the bazaar. The process for showcasing products on the organization’s websee craft fair page 13

City officials should finalize Corridor maintenance plans As the Connective Corridor construction continues and draws to a close, local city officials will begin to take control of its maintenance and upkeep. Certain aspects of the maintenance plan were organized and prepared for, but it is troubling that the plan is not fully in place. The city is responsible for plowing the bike lanes and maintains lighting along the route. The county will be responsible for maintaining environmentally friendly infrastructure. But there are other aspects – such as watering, weeding and pruning trees – that have not been discussed yet. These tasks may fall to property owners and not under the city or county jurisdiction. This project has been in the works since 2005 and is a tremendous endeavor for Syracuse University and the city. It is alarming that city officials don’t have a maintenance plan fully set in place. With all the money, time and hard work going toward the project, it would be a disservice if the city does not have a proper way to maintain and upkeep it.

EDITORIAL by the daily orange editorial board The plan for maintenance should have been set in stone before the construction began. There’s no point in beginning an expensive project if it will fall into disarray immediately. Phase one of the Connective Corridor construction ended earlier this year. In the remaining two phases of the project, officials must solidify plans on how to maintain and upkeep the Connective Corridor so it can be effectively utilized by both the SU community and the city residents.

Student selection to chancellor search committee favored SA The process for nominating and selecting students to the chancellor search committee should have been made openly available to the entire Syracuse University student body. During Wednesday’s University Senate meeting, the list of nominees was approved to be submitted to the Board of Trustees for official appointment. Nominees include eight faculty members, one staff member, one graduate student and two undergraduate students The two undergraduate students, P.J. Alampi and Ivan Rosales, are members of the Student Association. USen moderator Bruce Carter said he assigned the task of selecting student representatives to serve on the search committee to SA President Dylan Lustig. There was no formal set of guidelines for selecting nominees. It was up to Lustig to ultimately choose the students he felt would best serve the demands and commitment of the committee. This should have been changed. The process to find student nominees for the committee should have been opened up to the entire student body through a formal application process. The SA president has the capabil-

EDITORIAL by the daily orange editorial board ity to reach every undergraduate student via email. Alerting the student body community of this search and allowing the acceptance of applications would have made the process inclusive of the entire undergraduate population. Alampi and Rosales are qualified for the position, but this does not mean other students outside of SA are not. Rosales said candidates unaffiliated with SA were considered, but with no formal application, the most effective avenue for considering students unknown to SA officials was not explored. If given the opportunity to apply for the position, many may turn it down. But, simultaneously, skilled and capable students who are not associated with SA may apply for the position. Though the undergraduate student body democratically elects the SA president to be the defender of the students, a consistent system of checks and balances is in order and should be used in cases like this in the future.

2012 failed to bring in fresh content; trend looks to continue in upcoming year

ou, your mom and even your grandma have heard the phrase “Be the change you want to see in the world.” When looking back at 2012, it’s safe to say no one wants to see anything change in our world. This was a year full of sequels, prequels, reboots and re-imaginings. The same stories were told again, but with a twist! Hollywood promises — in everything from television to movies to celebrity meltdowns. But we’re all OK with it. As college students, we were assured our favorite culture icons would always be around, whether they’re suave spies like James Bond or eccentric divas like Lady Gaga. Our zip codes will change, we’ll get more candles on our birthday cake, but Gaga will always be there to have eerily similar music to Madonna. And movies continued to reference the past just as well as Gaga. “Marvel’s The Avengers,” “The Dark Knight Rises,” “The Hunger Games,” “The Amazing


the one that got away Spiderman” and “The Breaking Dawn – Part 2” were the top grossing movies of the year. All five are adaptions of comics or plain old books, while the top two were the newest installments of already cemented series. In the next month, we’ll be seeing adaptations of “The Hobbit,” “Les Misérables” and “Anna Karenina.” Primetime TV Land wasn’t much more creative. CBS premiered the New York City set Sherlock drama “Elementary” with Lucy Liu as our dear Watson. The CW pulled out 1980’s

Local Syracuse resident upset by lack of data in East neighborhood article I found the article “A home of their own: University-area neighborhoods see increase in landlord-owned houses” to be erroneous and just poorly reported. Generalizations and untruths in the articles such as “the few residents on the street who own the home they live in,” “the number of owner-occupied homes in the East neighborhood has declined recently,” Ms. Raulli is “one of few local residents in the East neighborhood,” “The Raullis are among the few residents on the street who own the home they live in” and “Livingston  Avenue has reached a crucial tipping point in the balance between owner-occupied and landlordowned homes …” were not supported by one single piece of data or research.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR I’ve lived on Livingston Avenue for 26-plus years and the effect of some inconsiderate partiers and apathetic landlords has been better and it has been worse. But there continues to be lots of owner occupants and families on our block, and throughout the East neighborhood. Writing that there are few left is totally inaccurate. Yes, we remain vigilant and demand civility, enforcement of laws and codes, and most of us still enjoy the diversity, proximity and beauty of our neighborhood.

“Beauty and the Beast” from the mothballs as well as DC superhero Green Arrow for “Arrow.” Even celebrity drama was the same old same old. Lindsay Lohan’s black hole of madness series seems to be at part 34. Amanda Bynes forgot how to drive a car like countless forgotten celebrities of yore, such as Mischa Barton and Charlie Sheen. Miley Cyrus pulled a Britney Spears circa 2007. She shaved her head, went on Twitter rants and stopped wearing pants. Justin Bieber transitioned into his own Justin Timberlake and even crooned Timberlake classic “Cry Me a River” at a concert. Luckily, for everyone who enjoys the Same Old S***t, Different Day we saw in the last 12 months, 2013 promises to offer the usual usualness. There will be two Marvel movies out next year: “Iron Man 3” on May 3 and “Thor: The Dark World” on Nov. 8. “The Dark Knight” producer-director Christopher Nolan will take a turn at solely producing a superhero blockbuster with “Man of Steel.” Even Jack and the Bean Stalk will hit the silver

screen with “Jack the Giant Slayer,” which was originally slated for 2012 until it was pushed back. And for anyone who missed Carrie Bradshaw’s voiceovers from “Sex and the City,” worry not. The CW has added aptly named “The Carrie Diaries” to its midseason schedule. But in the immediate future we have holiday specials to look forward to. These are the mainstays that can outshine even Ironman and Carrie Bradshaw. My personal favorite, “It’s a Wonderful Life,” has been popping up since 1946. The Christmas movie classics club is so exclusive that the only modern movie to break in is “Elf.” But if you can bet on anyone being able to crash something, it’s definitely Will Ferrell. At least with the world ending in only a matter of weeks, we’ll end everything on a predictable note. Ariana Romero is a junior magazine journalism and political science major.

Professor argues with letter criticizing Costas’ rant in support of gun control Robert Burwell, in his letter to The Daily Orange on Dec. 4, chastises Bob Costas for suggesting during the halftime of Sunday Night Football that “we should outlaw handguns.” I encourage students to find Costas’ comments online and listen to them carefully. What they will hear is an expression of concern about the gun culture in the United States, and a suggestion that the widespread possession of handguns is a factor in many violent deaths.  Burwell’s claim that Costas called for a blanket ban against handguns is simply untrue. It is, however, typical of how the gun lobby responds to proposals to regulate the sales and possession of guns in any way. Whether it has to do with the sale of armor piercing bullets, the ability of people on terrorist watch lists to

LETTER TO THE EDITOR wander into gun shows and purchase assault rifles, or anything else, all such suggestions are instantly equated with a diabolical plan to confiscate all firearms from Americans. Laws pertaining to the sale of prescription drugs, the granting of drivers’ licenses and even how we dispose of our trash are for the most part noncontroversial. The idea that any regulation whatsoever of firearms is an intolerable violation of our rights is patently absurd.

With New Year’s resolutions, SA officals look to better student life in 2013


here is no better day to start fresh than Jan. 1. The brink of 2013 is upon us, and as the New Year’s Eve tradition suggests this is the time for making resolutions to ensure the next 365 days are better than the last. But many pledges made on the first day of the new year tend to fizzle out by February. This is not only true for you and me, but also for the student body government at Syracuse University. This year, let’s change that. During Winter Break, as you regroup and recharge, make decisive plans for the betterment of yourself and your return to SU. Allie Curtis and her team of Student Association leaders need to do the same to kick the spring semester and her tenure off right. Janine Savage, SA’s current chief of staff, knows the importance of using time off resourcefully to work News Editor Editorial Editor Sports Editor Presentation Director Photo Editor Copy Chief Art Director Development Editor Social Media Producer Web Developer Asst.

at her highest potential. Her oath is to help make SA initiatives into team efforts more than individual goals. Savage believes a more unified organization will allow additional capable representatives to contribute different ideas in the process of forming and executing initiatives. This concept of collaboration is the key to a successful 2013 for SA. A larger conversation concerning initiatives not only allows the best ideas to be heard, but it also means the chances of initiatives actually being completed with tangible results are increased. Representatives can divide up the work that needs to be completed, as they are also balancing a heavy course load like you and me, and strengths can be utilized to create quality results. Curtis’ resolution in January is to

campus watchdog begin working on stalled initiatives and pushing them through to completion. This includes making take-out boxes available for non-traditional dining halls like Schine Dining. The process for allocating student activity fee money to SU’s registered student organizations can always be improved, a fact recently re-elected Comptroller Stephen DeSalvo realizes. He is embracing the challenge with a resolution to implement new reforms that will allow more students to find a way to connect with, and

participate in, the events student organizations organize using the student fee allocations. To make DeSalvo’s vision a success, he should work closely with the Public Relations Committee, currently headed by Colin Brown. Promoting these events to ensure their success is a process the comptroller, the PR committee and the leaders of student organizations need to implement collectively. Concerning the PR committee’s specifically, Brown prompted a resolution in which he will work to increase SA’s social media presence on campus to create a strengthened, direct connection with the student body and facilitate conversation. Now it’s your turn to make a resolution. Make an oath to follow SA’s Twitter account or “like” its Facebook page to stay up to date on the latest happenings of your student

government and the actions it makes, all which affect your life at SU. Better yet, stop by the SA office in the Schine Student Center and meet with your representatives. Give feedback on their plans and pitch your own ideas. Everyone in that office really does want to hear them. Most importantly, you should make a resolution to hold SA accountable for the pledges that have been made to you. This is how an effective government-constituency relationship works. Don’t let 2013 be another year of unfulfilled promises and resolutions you wish you and your student government stuck with.

have rewritten this duck about 100 times. I started it when I really did think I was going to leave The Daily Orange, an entire year ago. I’ve been updating it at least once a week since then, trying to figure out what to say. I had hoped having it written beforehand would take away some of the emotional distress associated with leaving the place I’ve called home for four semesters. It didn’t work — I’m still turning in my duck two days late and I’m still struggling to even think about leaving this place. Anyway, thanks for the perspective everyone and sorry for playing with your hair. ... Mom, Dad, Shaun and Kevin: I don’t think I let on how much of a toll The D.O. took on me. Sorry I’m not coming home. Kheel: You assigned me my first story and weren’t afraid to tell me how awful it was. But something you did made me come back, so many long nights later, thank you. Beckie: My tenure at The D.O. has progressed how it has because of you and I don’t think you know how I envy you. Katie and Kathleen: Thanks for hiring me. Kath, the way you share advice is impeccable. You’re so easy to ask for help. Boren: Ready? Just once. “Cool whip.” Dara: Of the people I respect at this paper, you are at the top. Thank you for reminding me why the news editor is important. Thank you for letting me escape to the management couch. Thank you for the key lime pie on my birthday. Susan Kim: Whenever I feel like I shouldn’t be working at The D.O., I reread your duck. Becca: I haven’t deleted the email you sent me after we produced the 9/11 paper. You said you hoped your design matched my efforts. By far, every design you have ever worked on for this paper far exceeded the efforts anyone else put into it. Jon: Everything you do, you do well. I slightly hate you for that. If I was a calm news editor it was because you were in the newsroom. Thank you for not showing how sick of me you got and for dealing with having a million classes with me. Liz: I may have been too hard on you. I’m sorry I was such a bad teacher. Debbie: I’m lucky to have had you in my section. I’m so proud. I’m so glad we spent the summer in NYC together and became ... friends. NickGallagherWarren: I’m sad we didn’t have the chance to work together.

Bouv: You brought the necessary sassiness to the newsroom and made my days that much brighter. Maddy: It’s a bummer you couldn’t have been on the porch with me together, but I know you’ll shine there this spring. Make sure Rachael entertains you — it’s part of her job. Cheryl: I was incredibly worried about who my porch mate would be this semester. I am so, so glad it was you. Amrita: You led with exceptional poise and grace. Thanks for putting up with the 8,000 budget emails I sent daily. Rachael: How much you’ve changed since the first University Lectures preview. ... It’s been the best pleasure working with you and I’m so excited you’ll be taking over. I’ll try not to be overbearing. Marwa: Thanks for making me feel important and helpful. I appreciate it more than you know. Jess, Dylan, Meredith, Evan: You’re all so talented. It’s been great to watch. Casey: It’s a hard job and it will take you down. But it’s the best job. Keep an ear to the ground and ask for help. Always remember, it’ll be worth it in the end. Columnists: Sorry I’m crazy. You guys were great and it’s been my pleasure. Cohen: I know I probably wasn’t your ideal counterpart when all the sports-news news happened, but I’m glad you were mine. Ryne, Iseman, Bailey, Treds, Klinger, Wilson: Thanks for putting up with me, my not-sofunny jokes and my mac ideas. Also, I’m sorry. KatKim, Biddie, Odie, Erik, CDB, Avery, Boomer: I was secretly jealous of you all. Pulp seems like it’s actually fun.

Chase, Kristen, Lauren, Sam, Luke: No matter how much we joke about it, the photo editor position is really not cursed. It’s just a position that takes drive and commitment. I’m glad you all have that. Emmett: There was a semester where we always ended up at the same parties. I miss that! Micah: You fit in seamlessly here. Thanks for sending me all of the emojis. And for the kickass duck.

Lauren Tousignant: You are not forgotten about! I’ve been trying to live up to your legacy, but I can’t stomach that much alcohol.

Ankur: I’m sorry I never learned to actually design pages. I’m sorry I tried to call myself a designer. Can we still be friends?

Laura, Shayna, Melanie: Thank you for emailing me when I least expected it, but needed it the most.

Designers: I am sorry for pretending to be a designer and be as cool as you guys are.

Profs Grimes, Gutterman, Gallagher and Lloyd: Sorry for skipping classes and sleeping in class and talking too much in class. You’re great resources and I’m sorry for not utilizing your skills.

Hannah, Kaycie, Stacy, Lauren, Lauren, Jess, Emmy: I don’t know why you are still friends with me. But I am finally leaving The D.O., only to graduate and leave again. Sorry. Laurence: I admire your grammatical skills and appreciate you always picking up my slack. You’ve always been there for me and I don’t thank you enough. I’m sorry we never decorated our apartment. I hope they don’t stick you with a random roommate. Alexis: Thanks for always having the right answers to my problems, even when I didn’t listen. I’m sorry The Daily Orange prevented you from visiting. Mark: I’m never going to figure out the right thing to say here and you know how many times I’ve come back in and edited this. I love you. I’m proud of you. But I’m scared as hell to leave you and go into the real world without you. Come with me? -30-

Bruce Carter, chair of the senate’s Agenda Committee, presented the list of names, which the senate approved. The nominees were not informed before the meeting that they were part of the final selection, but all proposed nominees agreed to serve if selected. Before voting to approve or decline the nominations, members of the senate pressed Carter for more details regarding the selection process and background of each member. Carter reminded the senate that the chosen committee members should not be representing their own school or college, but the institution as a whole. Members also questioned how many committee members had a background in university administration. Carter declined to go into specifics as to why each member was chosen, but said the committee did aim for diversity, considering gender, ethnicity and university background. Because of the number of faculty on the committee, not every school or college can be represented.

expected to take between a year and a year and a half to complete. Internal investigations committee delayed An ad hoc committee charged with the task of reviewing the university’s policies and practices, and how they align with the university’s actions, is postponing its report. A report was expected from the committee, established in January, no later than this month. Kristi Andersen, a professor of political science and chair of the committee, said the committee needs more time because of the complexity of the topic. The committee plans to present an interim report in January. The senate announced at its January 2012 meeting that it would form the committee to independently study the administration’s policies and practices, acting on concerns that the 2005 investigation into the Bernie Fine sexual abuse allegations was done by the university’s own law firm of Bond, Schoeneck & King. The committee is separate from efforts the administration has made to review how the

Fine investigation was handled. The Board of Trustees also reviewed the policies and practices of investigations by the administration and released its report in July. The committee will determine whether university policies include: adequate procedures for a full and fair investigation; rules in place to notify the proper authorities when civil or criminal crimes are involved; adequate time to inform university governance bodies of administrative proceedings; and due process for all involved.

Other business discussed: •  Membership to an ad hoc committee to


review the university’s promotion process and how it compares to other institutions is finalized and will be announced once all members have been informed of their positions, Carter said. The Board of Trustees asked the senate to convene the faculty-led body of its choosing in May when heated discussion arose over the promotion process of faculty in the College of Law. •  The senate approved a report from the committee on curricula on new and changed courses. The report included 30 proposed new courses. @ daramcbride

that the script needed to be rewritten, to protect both himself and the actors he helped to recruit. “I couldn’t send them out to do the things they were expecting them to do for the movie,” Powless said. “They wouldn’t have been allowed to come home if their people saw the movie. They would’ve been embarrassed.” At the time, Powless had just signed his contract to start his current position at SU. He hadn’t even moved everything into his office yet. This meant he had the time to rewrite the script. But it also meant he had more on the line. “It was a big jump because I knew what was at stake,” Powless said. “I went in with both feet and I had to make sure that I committed to it. I did everything I possibly could to make sure that the end product was respectful, yet entertaining.” Ira Huff, a senior English and textual studies major and Tonawanda Seneca Nation lacrosse player, said he appreciated what the movie did to put the Native American image in a good light. “Because you can only do cowboys and Indians so much,” he said.



Huff said he thinks the movie did what it could, but he doesn’t think the way to bridge the gap between Native Americans and others in the campus community is through a movie. “There has to be dialogue,” Huff said. “We live so close together, we live amongst one

ONONDAGA NATION ABORIGINAL TERRITORY another, but that kind of openness hasn’t really come about.” Huff is a part of the Native American Students at Syracuse, which he said tries to raise visibility and get involved in the campus community. “We have our challenges because not everyone’s willing to listen,” he said. “Or not everyone even knows we exist.” Powless said though “Crooked Arrows” is still about two-thirds reality and one-third Hollywood, there are subtle things in the movie that make it so even Native American people can learn a little bit as they watch it. He said some Onondaga parents have told him their children have watched the movie upward of 30 times, reciting it word for word, which magnifies the importance of the movie’s lessons. “It’s these little things that are subliminal that are in this movie,” Powless said. “These kids are going to end up thinking about college and educating themselves and moving forward.” Tyler Hill, a lifelong Onondaga lacrosse player who played Silverfoot in “Crooked Arrows,”

said he appreciated the opportunity this movie gave him to serve as a good role model for those children. “That’s who the movie really was made for anyways; the kids, our future players,” Hill said. “That’s just a really good feeling to know that you’re somebody’s role model.” He has visited many different Native American communities and said that everywhere he goes, people and their children tell him they


loved the movie. “I knew no matter what this movie was going to be a positive thing for our people,” Hill said. “So I was just happy and grateful to be a part of it, to spread the game of lacrosse and make a difference in the youth.” Hill and Powless are both striving for this idea of spreading the message and making changes for the future. For Powless, confirmation of his cause came in the form of an email from a mother thanking him for the opportunity the movie gave her daughter. The girl was only about 13. Her mother and grandmother found out that she had been telling people she was Italian because she was ashamed of her Native American heritage. When “Crooked Arrows” needed Native American extras, they sent her on the bus without telling her what the movie was for. She stepped off the bus, surrounded by countless Native American extras, actors and a Native American co-producer. They were all proud to be Native American, all happy to be there and be playing the Native American role in this movie, Powless said. At the end of the 12 hours on set, she walked through her front door, turned to her mother and grandmother and said: “‘I’ll never say that I’m Italian again.’” “Why wouldn’t I get involved in this movie?” Powless said. “To have an opportunity to do that, for someone to be proud of who they are, that’s why I do what I do.”

The organization strives to subsidize the cost of athlete participation through donations and fundraisers like the Sport Management Club charity auction, according to the fact sheet. Doors open and bidding begins at 5 p.m. and continues until the buzzer sounds to indicate the start of the second half of the basketball game, according to the fact sheet. About 550 items will be auctioned off that appeal to different ages and genders, including sports memorabilia, sports game tickets, electronics, jewelry, restaurant gift certificates, signed photos, attraction tickets, DVDs and books, said Kozar, the chairman. Specific items available for bidding include an Apple iPad, a basketball signed by Jim

Boeheim, a football signed by Doug Marrone, a Pandora bracelet, an New York Giants Greatest Games DVD and a Dinosaur Bar-B-Que Gift Pack, according to the fact sheet. The club obtained these items by reaching out to more than 1,600 connections it has established over the years, Kozar said. He said he believes the group will be able to raise more money because it has 150 more items to auction off than ever before. “All the members have done a great job in doing their part and doing more than they are supposed to be doing,” he said. “They have gone above and beyond. It is unbelievable.” It was the responsibility of students involved in coordinating the auction to reach out to businesses, foundations and alumni to secure items, Raimo said. This event gives the students involved in the Sport Management Club a connection to the Syracuse community and gives them the opportunity to give back, according to the fact sheet. Said Kozar: “We’re going to be here four years, and we want to give back to the community we are a part of.”

SERVED By Andrew Muckell


Staff Writer

o some, Nov. 27, 2012 will forever be known as “The Day NYU Broke.” On that day, the Bursar’s Office at New York University sent an email to the entire student body, but the listserv had a serious flaw. Although more up-to-date listservs use a service called E-Mail Direct that prevents recipients from replying all, the office sends emails in an older format that allows them to, according to a Nov. 27 NYU Local article. Max Wiseltier, a sophomore business administration and finance dual major, accidentally stumbled upon this fact. He was trying to forward the email to his mother, but the message was sent to 39,979 NYU students’ mailboxes instead, according to the article.

Once students realized the gravity of the situation, the floodgates swung open and more emails began piling up. “I basically got a message from a couple of friends, and my roommate asked me about my email,” Wiseltier said, “I also got a lot of weird questions like, ‘Can I borrow a pencil?’ and ‘Does anyone have a copy of Good Burger?’” Others used the event as an excuse to send pictures of Nicholas Cage to their friends and thank the student body for treating them well throughout college, according to the article. Many got fed up with the prank and told the perpetrators to shut up. Still, others used the forum to ask thought provoking questions. “One of the funnier things I read was, ‘Would you rather fight a horse-sized duck or 100 duck-sized horses?’” Wiseltier said.

NYU creates massive email chain after enabling reply all on school-wide listserv

The university shut down the listserv a day later and apologized to the student body for the inconvenience. David Vogelsang, executive director of the Student Resource Center, said in the article that it was his fault for the email’s settings. “I take full responsibility for this blunder and offer my sincere apologies for the frustrating situation that was created,” Vogelsang said in the article. Vogelsang said in an email to The Daily Orange that he would like to “put this behind us” and move forward. There’s no need to perpetuate the situation, he said. Many students said they enjoyed the experience, according to the article. Wiseltier said in the article he thought the experience caused a “rekindled sense of community at NYU (even if it’s based on being stupid).”

“I think most students feel like it’s funny,” Wiseltier said to The Daily Orange. “I’ve gotten more positive feedback than negative.” But there was some negative backlash. Some, according to the article, came from students who got nonstop email notifications to their phones. Others were just not amused. Wiseltier said after a while he just put all of the emails in a folder and deleted them. He said anyone else could have done the same if they got sick of #Replyallcolypse, the childish jokes or the Nicholas Cage pictures. For those who were not, the NYU Memes Facebook page is still filled with posts about the accident. NYU’s Information and Technology Services is now working to improve the office’s email settings to E-Mail Direct, according to the article.

y time at The Daily Orange has been nothing short of a roller coaster ride. I’ve never put my blood, sweat and tears into something until I started working here. The amount of times I’ve thought to myself, “I’m going to quit, I’m really going to quit this time,” and go back to being a normal student is countless. But I kept coming back every day ready to do it all over again. It’s because this experience is invaluable. It’s because the staff here has more passion for what they do than any other workplace I’ve ever been in. It’s because all that I’ve learned and achieved could never have happened in the classroom. Mom, dad, roommates and friends: Thank you for pushing me, and thank you for listening to me or staying on the phone when all I did was cry or complain. You are my backbone. Chase: From being an assistant with me to taking the reigns of photo editor, I’ve seen you grow in enormous strides. In the short amount of time you had to prepare for being photo editor, you improved immensely and took it on head first. I have the utmost respect for you. Your work ethic and quotable charm has made my last semester at The D.O. an enjoyable one. Proud of you, keep fighting the good fight. Sam: From day one as a staff photographer I was completely wowed by your work. There was no doubt that when you dropped your first shoot off at the house and hung around forever that I knew you were going to one day sit in the photo chairs. Stick with it; you’re going to go far. Ankur: I hope you know you’re part of the reason I stayed on for another semester. I absolutely do not know how you do it all and keep a positive attitude with the rest of us crazy people. Your talent and commitment to the paper is undeniable. Sharing an office with you made the long nights shorter and oftentimes a lot of fun. Keep pushing for the visual side, counting on you! Mark and Laurence: Thank you for being exactly what management needs to be. We’ve worked hard and still had a great time while doing so. Thank you for being there when photo really needed you and for pushing for a better visual paper. Meghin: No one tousles my hair like you do. Being serious, the paper has benefitted so much from all that you have contributed. I have so much respect for you and everything you have

done here. You may have a loud voice, but it is one you should never lose. Also, can we cry together at Race? Kat Kim: That night you pulled me aside and asked if I was coming back another semester when in my mind I was 100 percent sure I was not, is the night that changed my mind. I don’t think you realize what you did, but thank you. Becca: You were like a mom to me when I started working in photo. I swear everyone’s mood lifted whenever you were around. Stacie and Kristen: I held down the fort, guys! Oh, the times we had without a head editor. Thank you for sticking around and pulling through till the end. Katie McInerney: Thank you for coming in time and time again to save photo when it was going under. Brandon, Mitch, Andrew and Ryan: Ah, yes. The four who quit. Despite what many may say I applaud you all for taking on the challenge of photo editor and trying it out; it’s not f***ing easy! Photo lab crew, you know I love you guys. Brandon, I thank you for encouraging me to work here. Mitch, it was a good two weeks or so. Andrew, in my eyes, you were the best photo editor the house has seen. Each of you is extremely talented and I can’t wait to see where you go. Marwa: Your ability to stay composed when times are trying as news editor is incredible. It’s been wonderful working with you. I also want your closet. ALLEN ALLEN ALLEN: You are quite literally the most interesting man in the world. It’s been weird, but great to have you in the house. Lizzie and Beth: You are both very talented designers. Looking forward to see where your work takes you. Sports office: Thank you for compromising with photo when it was needed. Seriously, it was super civil compared to how it has been in the past and I’ve loved working with you all. Allie: You are an awesome addition to The D.O. staff. I can’t wait to see what you do as video editor. Colleen, Erik and Chelsea: You’ve been through a lot and have managed to pull off some awesome feature content throughout the semester. I

wish you all the very best. Current and future staff: Your job at this paper will be exhausting, emotionally draining and you might even suffer from getting a really bad grade in some of the easiest classes on campus (case in point, myself in oceanography; I know, how right?), but it will be worthwhile. You’re

going to one day have that moment when you say to yourself, “This is it, this is why it is all worth it.” I know I have. Good luck, push forward and do not give up.

During finals, Van Vechten said, it is important for students to take care of their bodies so they won’t get sick. High levels of stress can reduce immune functioning, lowering the body’s ability to defend against colds and flu, she said. It is also important for students to limit alcohol intake during finals week because alcohol is dehydrating, making one even more prone to catching the flu, she said. Students who think they may have the flu should call Health Services and make an appointment.  Said Van Vechten: “We have dealt with flu for many years and deal with as many flu cases as may present (themselves) during a usual flu season.”

Department uses part of $1 million donation for Sims Hall renovations By Jen Bundy Staff Writer

A fresh coat of paint covers the walls of the new lobby on the first floor of Sims Hall. This is just one aspect of the makeover the Department of Communication and Rhetorical Studies space has undergone after receiving a $1 million donation from the Harry T. Mangurian Jr. Foundation Inc. The CRS department, which celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2010, focused on renovating the space to improve the academic environment for students, according to the release.

Syracuse University alumnus Terry Skuse, a member of the College of Visual and Performing Arts Advisory Council, facilitated the donation, according to a Nov. 26 VPA news release. “The renovations make people feel welcome and fosters a good learning environment,” said Jeffrey Good, an assistant CRS professor. New carpeting and paint are only the beginning of the changes to the CRS department space. The renovations, which took five months to complete, focus specifically on updating office and classroom space along with technology

capabilities, according to the release. The technology updates will be particularly helpful, Good said. The “cutting-edge technology,” for example, will be part of a large multipurpose room that has the capability to hold events, seminars and conferences, he said. One interesting benefit is the ability for professors to Skype people from outside SU, which enables people from all over the world to contribute to discussions and lectures. Digital welcome screens and benches have been included in the new main lobby design along with comfortable seating for prospective students and visitors. Classrooms now contain new adaptable desks for right- or left-handed students with built-in cup holders, according to the release. Teaching assistants now have access to a new suite with 12 individual workspaces, computers and a conference area. An additional computer lab is also open to graduate students and faculty members, according to the release. But some students, like Tevin Martin, are skeptical of the effect that this new technology will have on their classroom experience. “I don’t think most of the technology stuff will be that important,” said Martin, a sophomore CRS major. He said he felt more basic items, like the computers and desks, will be beneficial for student use. “But why do we need more 50-inch flat-screen televisions?” Martin said. Two television screens have been placed in the main lobby area, which feature news and announcements specific to the CRS

department and welcome messages, according to the article. There are already television screens all across campus with announcements, Martin said. “Of course the renovations as a whole are great,” he said. “The desks, benches and paint all create a better classroom area.” Other students are supportive of the new renovations, including Natalie Andrianos, a sophomore CRS major. “I definitely think it was worth it,” she said.  The quality of education never lacked because of the old surroundings, but the new technology in each classroom will better assist learning for students, Andrianos said.  “Last year, Sims Hall was very old, run down,” she said. “It did not seem to meet its potential.” Amos Kiewe, a CRS professor and chair of the department, said in the release that the renovations give the department a “fresh, warm atmosphere.” “The classrooms represent our future while still maintaining a link to our rich past,” Amos said. The updates to the department have given the space a fresh, new look, said Good, the assistant professor. The “beautiful” first f loor featuring new seating and color makes it aesthetically pleasing and more inviting, he said. “The department is very fortunate and very appreciative of the nice offices and surroundings,” Good said. “It makes coming into the office that much nicer.”

All-American Rejects pump out high-octane show at Westcott luke rafferty | design editor TYSON RITTER , the charismatic frontman for the All-American Rejects, wails into the microphone during the band’s headlining set at the Westcott Theater on Wednesday night.



s the first opener left the stage, the audience could hardly stay silent. Howls for the AllAmerican Rejects bellowed from the crowd in the pit until a unity of chants formed among them. Fans of all ages screamed “we want the Rejects” over and over again, until lead singer Tyson Ritter and the rest of the group took the

stage and started the show. Rock band the All-American Rejects played a nearly sold-out show at the Westcott Theater on Wednesday night. Doors for the all-age show opened at 7 p.m. By 8, the venue was filled with an eclectic crowd, ranging from young children accompanied by their parents to high school and college students. First to take the stage was the newly formed band Pacinello. The

group’s creator and guitarist Molly D’Agostino joked that they are currently a hot commodity. Forming and solidifying members over the past five years, Pacinello has only recently gained lead singer Kim March — who in the past released solo music under the name “Vada March” — in the past week. “Opening for the Rejects was super awesome,” D’Agostino said. “I’m only 18, Kim’s only 18 and our bass player

is 15, so we’re all extraordinarily lucky and humble to be on stage before a great band like the Rejects.” Following Pacinello was bluesy rock group The Stone Foxes. Playing some old songs, but mostly sticking to new material from their up-and-coming album “Small Fires,” The Stone Foxes set the stage with explosiveness and energy that got the audience moving and grooving. Coming from San Francisco, mem-

bers of the band frequently joked on stage about never seeing snow, and how their new album “Small Fires” will bring the heat and melt the ice. Members of the group jumped around on stage, constantly switched instruments, threw tambourines across the stage and even invited March on stage to help sing. Drummer and vocalist Shannon Koehler jumped from the drums to the


Walk the Moon draws energy from audience By Maggie Cregan CONTRIBUTING WRITER

Students sporting bold stripes of face paint and glow-in-the-dark dots around their eyes danced, clapped and sang along to headliner Walk the Moon. “We rattle this town, we rattle this scene!” crooned Walk the Moon’s lead singer Nicholas Petricca before an enthusiastic crowd.  Walk the Moon wrapped up its largest-ever American tour in Schine

Underground on Wednesday night on the heels of a European tour headlining for Fun., and earning accolades like Amazon MP3’s No. 12 record of 2012 for its eponymous album, released this June. It was the second University Union Bandersnatch concert of the semester, after Kid Ink performed earlier this fall. The unusual decorations kept up a tradition that started when the

microphone and eventually wailed a bluesy harmonica solo toward the end of the set. “We’ve been heading up north and it’s been super cold; I don’t think it hit us till today in Syracuse when we all realized how real the cold can be,” Koehler said. “But it’s awesome to see the fans out in the cold traveling from all ends to come see us and the Rejects.

set with songs from their new album and urged everyone to go the merchandise booth and pick up a fortune cookie that held the code to their free single “Everybody Knows.” Soon after the Foxes exited, Tyson Ritter and the rest of the Rejects took the stage and began with their fan favorite from their early 2000’s heyday, “Dirty Little Secret.” The pit exploded as the intro guitar riff echoed through the theater, older couples supervising their children were dragged further into the pit, and even the oldest of attendees couldn’t help bobbing their head to the catchy pop song. “I’m so glad they opened with ‘Dirty Little Secret,’ it was the perfect song for new fans and old fans alike,” said Jessica Green, a senior psychology major. “Everyone remembers that song being overplayed on the radio, and almost 10 years later the song still kicks ass.” Ritter frequently stopped in between songs to explain, enlighten and ultimately engage fans deeper into the songs he was playing. Though his use of obscenities may not have catered to the diversity of ages in attendance, his stories regarding muses, past loves and life in general allowed fans to look deeper into the soul of a musician they’d loved since the early 2000s. Kyle Siegel, a junior environmental studies major, explained how the Rejects play a huge part in his life, claiming “Gonzo” to be his favorite song of the night. The Rejects played fan favorites such as “Swing, Swing,” “Move Along” and “It Ends Tonight” before closing out a lengthy set with a three-song encore featuring “Kids In The Street” and “Heartbeat Slowing Down” from their new album. The entire night ended with widely loved “Gives You Hell.” Upon the show’s close, fans lined up for a chance to meet the band and get merchandise autographed. Erica Franceschini, a junior public relations major, and her friend Helayne Kushner, a senior psychology major, both said the show was like taking a trip down memory lane. Though Ritter gave many speeches throughout the night, one statement seemed to stick with the fans in the Syracuse community. Said Ritter: “So far we’re only a week into our rather short tour, but Syracuse you have been the best to us, and I promise I don’t say that every show!”

Five local events to check out before spring semester starts and tickets will be $20 in advance.



If you’re looking for cake tips, why not get them from the Cake Boss himself? Buddy Valastro will be on stage at the Mulroy Civic Center on Dec. 15, 2012 at 7:30 pm. Valastro will host his live “Homemade for the Holidays” show at the Oncenter next Friday. Not only will Valastro recount stories from Carlo’s Bakery, but he will also bring audience members onstage to help him craft various holiday treats. If you love Santa and have a sweet tooth, this is for you. The tickets for this all-ages show range from $35.75 to $43.75.


Whether or not you start the new year with a kiss, starting the year with laughter is definitely good luck. Get ready to enter 2013 laughing with the “First Night of Funny” on New Year’s Eve at the Civic Center at 8 p.m. And you can still catch that New Year’s Eve party, since the show will end at 10 p.m. The adults-only comedic venue will feature comedians from Comedy Central, NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” and “The Tonight Show,”

Escape the dreary walls at the Tennity Ice Skating Pavilion and head downtown to skate under the lights. Hours are shortened on the holidays, but the Clinton Square ice rink is open all winter break — weather permitting. If you don’t skate, at least go down to see the Christmas tree. Take the trip, enjoy a hot chocolate and listen to some holiday music. Skating admission from 5 to 8 p.m. is free. Otherwise, skate rentals are $3.


Animals are beautiful people, too. And they deserve their own holiday gifts. A variety of animals at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo will be presented with gifts on Dec. 16. Treats will be hidden inside the packaging. But for some, the real gift will be playing with the boxes. The event is part of the zoo’s enrichment program, which is designed to enhance the animals’ quality of life. The event starts at 10 a.m. and ends at 4 p.m. It is free for members and with paid zoo admission. Admission costs in December are $4 for youth under 18, $5 for adults and $8 for seniors.

ARMORY SQUARE HORSE-DRAWN RIDES Everyone loves the song “Sleigh Ride,” but actually going on a sleigh ride is even better. Armory Square’s horse-drawn wagon rides will give riders the festive feeling of being carried along in a one-horse open sleigh, as well as knowledge of the square’s history. Actors Scott Peal and Marsha Mahaffy will be in character as they greet riders. The free rides go on from 12-3 p.m., and while the first one was on Dec. 1, there are still chances to go on Dec. 8 and 15.

There is a list of people who should never read my allegedly funny musings every week: my parents, my girlfriend’s grandmother and, at the very top of that list, dear Father Linus. Lo and behold, it turns out that every single one of them is a loyal reader of the questionable content that I regularly produce. Now every one of them knows about my infatuation with the lingerie football league, my alcoholic tendencies — it’s only alcoholism if


no lies, just bulls*** you go to meetings, right? — and my propensity to talk about just how great boobs are (I mean, they are pretty awesome). I’m screwed. I am fairly certain the next time I step into a church I am going to burst into flames. When I go home for Christmas, I’m sure my parents will tell me just how much my column has disgraced the family name.

Next time I run into grandma Gaffney, I will most certainly be slapped. I’ve brought this all upon myself and deserve all of the punishment. For the past semester this column has been crass, rude and sometimes downright offensive, and I am proud of every damn word of it. The problem lies in my complete and utter lack of sensitivity. I am just not a very sensitive guy. This is especially a problem around the holidays. People are way more sensitive in the month of December than in any other month. If I mistakenly wish a Happy Hanukkah to the wrong passer-by, I might get burned at the stake. I’m a bit of a Scrooge myself, but even I think that’s a bit severe. Why can’t we all just sing “Dah who doraze”

and buy exorbitant gifts for each other? Even that gets dangerous these days. Buy your significant other a wonderfully ugly Christmas (or Hanukkah) sweater that is one size too big, and all of a sudden you’re the biggest jerk in the entire world. Instead of “It’s the thought that counts,” gift buying has become “Guess right or you’re in for a very Silent Night … on the couch.” I don’t understand why people are so sensitive. Is society really in such a sorry state that even holiday greetings have to be nondenominational? If we insist on being so politically correct all the time, things will really start to suck. Pretty soon, someone will accuse Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer of having racist connotations and Frosty the Snowman will be an alleged white supremacist. Santa Claus will be banned from stores because anybody who loves the color red that much is clearly a communist. Runaway gingerbread men will be construed as a symbol of anarchy and we’ll have to do away with their delicious goodness too. But being politically correct is really important. Right? If there is any hope for living in an enjoyable society, we should be able to be politically incorrect and wish anybody a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah or Kwanzaa, or even a Glorious Festivus (for the rest of us). Laugh at a funny joke instead of go looking for a reason to be offended by it. And, most of all, don’t be afraid about who’s listening or reading. Even if it’s your priest.

allen chiu | design editor NICHOLAS PETRICCA croons to the crowd in Schine Underground on Wednesday night. Ghost Beach, an indie band hailing from New York City, opened the concert.


band members first painted their faces in the video for the group’s upbeat indie favorite “Anna Sun.” With their wistful vocal harmonies, infectious guitar beats and easy grins, the band had a sold-out audience singing along to almost every number.   Opening for Walk the Moon was Ghost Beach, a self-described “tropical grit-pop” group from New York City. Some songs, with their eerie synthesizers and ringing guitar parts, seemed almost psychedelic, while others were pure electronic dance numbers.  “I wanna see you guys start to loosen up!”

lead singer of Ghost Beach, Josh Ocean, said to the still-tepid audience before launching into the group’s second number. Ocean set the example himself by bounding and jerking across the stage like a less rhythmic Mick Jagger, coming to the very edge of the stage to get the audience moving.  Though the crowd clapped and nodded along to Ghost Beach’s pulsing beats and wailing guitar, audience members saved their loudest cheers for Walk the Moon, who took the stage at 9:25 p.m., just a few minutes after chants for the band broke out.  The group’s seamless performance had the audience singing along with dreamy melodies and infectious dance numbers alike. Walk the Moon played until 10:30 p.m., getting the audience to jump and wave ever

more enthusiastically with hits from the band’s recent album as well as a few new songs. Immediately upon the band’s exit, the crowd loudly took up the chant of “one more song,” and the group returned for a quick encore. Walk the Moon is working on new material and plans to hit the studio in a few days. Petricca says they don’t have a firm idea of what the new music will sound like yet, but adds that the band wants to maintain the spirit of its earlier music while possibly introducing a darker element.  Though the show was not without its glitches — a technician had to reach between Ghost Beach drummer Aaron Steele’s legs to adjust his set mid-song and the heat had band and audience alike sweating through their face paint — the audience left the concert grinning.  The reaction from the stage was equally enthusiastic. 


“I thought it was great,” said Walk the Moon’s guitarist Eli Maiman.  Students still longing for one more encore are in luck. Both bands have big plans for 2013. Ghost Beach will be taking off on its first headline tour in February as well as recording new material. Walk the Moon’s schedule is equally busy. Though tonight’s Bandersnatch show was the last leg of its headlining tour, after the show the band headed straight to the airport for San Francisco, where it’ll join a radio holiday tour.  Wednesday’s concert brought both Ghost Beach and Walk the Moon to Syracuse University for the first time, but fans of the show will be glad to know that neither band rules out the possibility of another visit.  When asked if Walk the Moon would come back to SU, Petricca answered “absolutely” with a smile.

’ve always been The Daily Orange’s music guy, but for once in my journalistic life, I’m at a loss for words. So where my pen failed me, I called on the muses blasting from my headphones to help me reminisce. Here’s to late nights, no sleep, coffee eyes and the best of friends. I loved every second of it.

Meghin: “Turn the record over. Hey, I’ll see you on the flip side.” Sure, we had a friendly feud, but I have so much respect for you.

Hey thanks again, for everything you did.

Chase: “Keep running, keep shining on.” From one cross-country kid to another, keep the finish line in mind, but enjoy the view once in a while too. I’m done here, but I’m glad you’re not.

The Daily Orange staff: “All my friends are living saints.” You all made the house at 744 Ostrom Ave. into a home, and I wouldn’t trade any of you for the world. Except maybe Beth.

Lizzie: “Just do what you can to do what you love, and be mindful when someone out there gives a shit.” Stay inspired, stay sharp and, most of all, use spell check. You’ll do great.

The Vandy Clan: “Steady and faithful as my anchor.” Mom, dad, Mo: I hope I made you guys proud. You stood by my side and let me take my own risks. I love you all so much.

Beth: “All my friends, they break and they bend. They take shape and they tend to get better with time.” I’m going to miss our bantering and bickering. Honestly, you’re one of the coolest girls I know. Don’t change.

Jeff, Nick and Dan: “We all grew up weird enough to laugh at how we used to be.” And I’m glad we did. You guys are the best friends I could ever have. Adam: “You want a friend for life, just listen to me.” You helped me get through some tough times. Thanks for always being there. Dara and Amrita: “If I started over, I’d do the same again.” You guys sure saw a heck of a lot more in me then I saw in myself. Thanks for giving this punk a shot. Liz: “I’m too sexy for my shirt.” #SorryImNotSorry for my awkward striptease either. But really, I envy you as a reporter. You’re fearless and headstrong. Mark and Laurence: “I’m writing this all down to let you know I gave my very best.” When things fell apart, thank you guys for trusting Chelsea and I to step up. Mark, I’ll miss your unfailing good humor. Laurence, you’re the dearest deer I know. Micah: “I want to be the very best, like no one ever was.” The only thing I enjoyed more than you playing Pokemon and cracking jokes with the Featch staff was your mom last night. Rachael: “Tonight, we are young. So let’s set the world on fire.” Thanks for dancing on a bar with this dorky assistant feature editor at Battle. Meredith: “They may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.” Covering Lamapalooza with you was a blast and a half. Jess: “Tramps like us, baby we were born to run.” Having another Springsteen fan was rad. Keep Casey sane next semester. Casey: “If you get a chance to win, take it.” Own the news section, make it your own and don’t forget to take a deep breath once in a while.

asst. copy editor | fall 2011 asst. feature editor | spring-fall 2012

Jon: “The dog days are over, the dog days are gone.” I’ll miss watching you flip chairs in Featch and making the house shake when you walk. Jokes: You’re not fat, and I hope your you-know-what stops hurting. KatKim: “I’ll make mistakes over and over again. You taught me not to be afraid, it’s okay to make them.” I wouldn’t be writing this now if it wasn’t for your patience and enthusiasm. I learned from the best. Danielle: “You helped to build, a belief within me that I carry to this day.” You left enormous shoes for me to fill. I hope I fit them okay. Boomer: “Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” And tell ’em Boomer sent you. We’ll miss your Southern charm in Pulp. Good luck rushing, and hope you touch back down in Delta Omega soon. Avery: “I used to wonder what friendship could be, until you shared its magic with me.” I’m really going to miss your sass, so here’s one pun for the road: Stay gold, Ponygirl. Colleen: “Things were never the same after you came and went.” I can’t thank you enough for being my first, and one of my best, friends in the house. You’re tough as nails and have a fighting spirit, and I can’t wait to hang out with you more often. Marwa: “We been knocked around, we been kicked down. When the floor gave out, we found common ground.” Hey, we survived. Whenever I was at the end of my fuse, you’d never fail to get me to smile. You’re boundlessly optimistic and I’m honored to say you’re my friend. Ankur: “Sometimes I think the best nights are only spent with best friends.” From our first thunderous high-five, I knew we were going to make a heck of a team. You gave me my nickname and when I was awkward and

new, you made me feel like part of the group. Chelsea: “Go forth, stay gold, stay yours.” There’s no one I would’ve wanted by my side this semester more than you. We kept our

heads above water, and it’s just hitting me now how lucky I am to have a best friend like you. If being co-Feature editor with you is my only legacy at The Daily Orange, that’s all I need. It’s been real, Slumpy.

When you come back to school well rested, write for feature! Email to get started.

Floating away Breathtaking visuals, moving lead performance buoy fantastical CGI adventure


Director: Ang Lee Cast: Suraj Sharma, Irrfan Khan and Adil Hussain Release date: Nov. 21 Rating:

3.5/5 Popcorns



ollywood loves marketing films as “journeys of self-discovery” — a worthless umbrella phrase covering everything from “Forrest Gump” to “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle.” So it’s reasonable to approach the supposedly unfilmable “Life of Pi” with a little skepticism, especially when most of its runtime is spent solely on a teenage boy stranded on a lifeboat in the middle of the Pacific Ocean with a Bengal tiger. Pi’s journey isn’t a smooth transition from book to screen, but frustrating narrative shortcomings are drowned in astounding visual entertainment. Oscar-winning director Ang Lee (“Brokeback Mountain”) with his 3-D cameras dove into a massive wave tank, emerging with a powerful adaptation of Yann Martell’s 2001 novel. At its heart is the touching performance of newcomer Suraj Sharma as Pi, and some of the most dazzlingly immersive CGI shots ever captured on film. But for all of its breathtaking shots of majestic animals and shimmering waters, the adaptation falls into deep storytelling pitfalls. “Life of Pi” is structured like a narrative sandwich: the bread is a conventional coming-of-age story told by a middleaged Pi, bogged down with clunky narration and altruistic themes of religious transcendence. The meaty middle is the agonizing, waterlogged fight for survival, bathed in eye-popping visual splendor. Then the film’s last act bungles what should be a heartbreaking payoff into an awkwardly executed anticlimax, squandering its epic momentum while preaching the tired religious epitaph that everything happens for a reason. So like an Atkins diet, the carbs are the problem. “Life of Pi” opens on a lush animal montage of the Indian zoo owned by Pi’s father (Adil Hussain), like an Animal Planet special shot with the sharp, lifelike quality of IMAX. Then the storybook structure jumps to modern-day Canada, where adult Pi (Irrfan Khan) recounts his extraordinary story to an inconsequential Canadian writer (Rafe Spall), who serves no narrative purpose but to listen and nod. After speeding through Pi’s Indian childhood — where he embraces Hinduism, Christianity and Islam — Pi’s family decides to move to Canada, taking with it all of Noah’s Ark. During a vicious storm, the Japanese freighter that Pi’s family rides on capsizes and sinks. Pi (Sharma) miraculously escapes on a lifeboat with a zebra, an orangutan and a hyena. The hyena kills the zebra and orangutan, but it doesn’t last long before a tiger hiding under the tarp leaps out and tears it apart. Pi is left adrift in the ocean, alone with the snarling Bengal tiger by the curious name of Richard Parker. Sharma is magnetic as Pi, despite acting against nothing but a green screen, with his fiery will to survive exploding on screen. Pi’s charming wit and ingenuity carry slower scenes, like trying to train Richard Parker, but his passion erupts while yelling into a blinding storm or jabbing the tiger with a makeshift spear. During more whimsical scenes, like a whale leaping up from glowing ocean depths, Pi’s wide eyes pop with unabashed wonder. Sadly, the suspenseful survival story flashes back to Canada, and the book’s revelatory ending falls flat through dull, philosophical conversations tangled in flashbacks. What should’ve been a raw, emotional triumph of the human spirit is instead a philosophical copout muddled in religious mumbo-jumbo. But “Life of Pi” is an undeniable visual triumph, as Lee explores beautiful natural seascapes through a vivid CGI lens. Pi encounters schools of dolphins, glowing jellyfish and a mossy, vine-tangled island teeming with meerkats. Not to mention the ferocious beast sharing the screen, a fully computer-generated creation with all the ferocity of a real 450-pound Bengal tiger. The atmosphere is often surreal: small ripples cascade across the clear water mirroring bright red-gold clouds shrouded in sunset overhead, and the glimmering stars reflecting perfectly, creating a dreamlike harmony between the sea and night sky. Like almost all adaptations, “Life of Pi” is hopelessly flawed because novel storytelling devices simply don’t translate seamlessly to film. But despite the clumsy narration and heavyhanded religious overtones, Ang Lee’s 3-D opus is a singularly stunning cinematic achievement. The flaws of groundbreaking films are often outshined by aesthetic beauty. “Avatar” was a blatant rip-off of “The Last of the Mohicans,” “The Matrix” and “Pocahontas,” but it was gorgeous to look at. For all its faults, “Life of Pi” is a visual masterpiece, and that’s what it’ll be remembered for.

Coleman, Christmas still developing on both ends for Orange By Ryne Gery SPORTS EDITOR

Jim Boeheim stood at the podium and declared his Syracuse team isn’t good yet. After a 36-point rout of Eastern Michigan on Monday, the head coach made it clear this group isn’t on the same level as the recordsetting 2011-12 one. First, he said, SU lacks a defensive force like Fab Melo in the middle of the zone. Second, Boeheim pointed out the lack of a veteran presence at this point. Ten minutes earlier, Boeheim assessed the progress of Melo’s replacements inside, Rakeem Christmas and DaJuan Coleman, who also fit the description of inexperienced players seeing valuable minutes. “I think with Rak and DaJuan, they just got to keep working every day, they just got to keep getting better,” Boeheim said. “They’re not there. We need them to keep getting better. “Their progress is going to determine where we go this year.” The big men will look to continue their development when No. 4 Syracuse (6-0) takes on Long Beach State (3-4) in the Carrier Dome on Thursday at 8 p.m. Christmas and Coleman have shown their potential to make a difference six games into the season, but both players remain works in progress. Neither player has displayed the ability to domi-

nate a game on the defensive end as Melo did, nor have they f lashed the ability to score consistently down low. Christmas is seeing an average of 20.5 minutes per game – nine more minutes of action than he saw last season as a freshman. He also scored 6.2 points per game and

“It’s not all about scoring, but if they were to catch the ball down low and put it in the basket, we’re going to be pretty much unbeatable.” Brandon Triche


pulled down 5.3 rebounds per game. Coleman, a 6-foot-9, 288-pound freshman, has started all six games, averaging 6.8 points and 5.3 rebounds per game. Christmas leads the team with 15 blocks, good for an average of 2.5 per game, while Coleman has only rejected two shots this season. Those numbers don’t measure up to Melo, who averaged 2.93 blocks per game en route to

earning Big East Defensive Player of the Year honors last year. As Boeheim said, the departure of the 7-footer, who forced opponents to regularly change shots, makes this year’s team more vulnerable at the defensive end. “It’s a big responsibility because when you’re in the middle of the zone, you have to be like sort of the quarterback,” Coleman said. “And you always have to talk and call out the lobs and everything. “You just have to see everything, and it’s a big responsibility and I think I can take it.” The Syracuse big men showed they still have to improve in that area against the Eagles on Monday. They allowed Eastern Michigan forward Glenn Bryant to sneak behind the zone and go up for an uncontested alley-oop to put his team ahead by four in the opening minutes. Other times, EMU players cut through the middle of the zone with ease to break the zone and set up open jumpers. With offensive playmakers like Brandon Triche, Michael Carter-Williams, C.J. Fair and James Southerland, Syracuse needs its big men to focus on holding down the middle of the zone. The offensive production is a bonus. But any consistent scoring punch they can add could help the Orange become a force down the road. “It’s not all about scoring, but if they were

to catch the ball down low and put it in the basket,” Triche said, “we’re going to be pretty much unbeatable.” Right now, though, Christmas and Coleman both have limited offensive games. That was clear as they battled Eastern Michigan center Da’Shonte Riley. Riley finished with six blocks, giving Christmas and Coleman trouble throughout the night. Riley rejected Christmas for his first block of the night less than three minutes into the game. At the start of the second half, Riley turned away a Coleman attempt underneath followed by forcing a jump ball a minute later as the SU center tried to get position and finish on the block. Coleman finished with a season-high 14 points, but he said he could have turned to a hook shot he’s been working on to be more effective in certain situations. As that move and the rest of his game develops, just how far Syracuse can go this year will be determined. But for now it’s clear to Boeheim that he, Christmas and the rest of the team remain a work in progress. “We got a lot of work to do to get to be good,” Boeheim said. “We want to get to be good. Last year’s team was good right now. This team is not good. They’ve got to get to be good.”



Ware’s Casper?



Seven up, seven down for the Orange.






6-6, 185 SO. 11.5 PPG, 9.5 APG


MIKE CAFFEY 6-0, 170 SO. 11.8 PPG, 4.5 APG

Carter-Williams should have an easy time working against Caffey, who is 6 inches shorter than the Syracuse point guard. He’ll be able to pass and shoot over the top.



Long Beach State is a very worthy opponent,



Surf ’s up.

6-9, 242 SO. 6.2 PPG, 5.3 RPG

JAMES ENNIS 6-7, 210 SR. 15.3 PPG, 7.0 RPG

This could be the marquee matchup Thursday night. Ennis leads Long Beach State in scoring and is second in rebounding. He will have to use his quickness against the taller Christmas.


6-4, 210 SR. 15.0 PGG, 3.3 APG


Another big size advantage for the Orange at the shooting guard spot. Not only does Triche have a 4-inch height advantage, but he is also 28 pounds heavier than Pappageorge. Look for him to drive.


DAJUAN COLEMAN 6-9, 288 FR. 6.8 PPG, 5.3 RPG




6-8, 215 JR. 11.2 PPG, 5.5 RPG

6-7, 180 SO. 9.2 PPG, 5.3 RPG

Fair will have a strength advantage against Gulley. He should be able to drive to the basket and score points in the paint.


6-9, 255 JR. 7.7 PPG, 7.5 RPG

896-304 37TH SEASON

As you may have guessed, the Orange will have a huge advantage inside against Long Beach State. Jennings must play smart to stay out of foul trouble.

In a three-day span, Long Beach State will take on two Top-10 teams. After taking on No. 4 Syracuse on Thursday, the 49ers travel to seventh-ranked Ohio State on Saturday. These two games are a large reason why Long Beach State has a strength of schedule ranking in the top 40 in the country.

STAT TO KNOW Kris Gulley, a sophomore guard and forward hybrid, is shooting 56.5 percent from 3-point range so far this season. He has made 13 of his 23 attempts, and he ranks in the Top 25 in the country in 3-point field goal percentage.






Advantage: Boeheim. Just as it will be in almost every game the Orange plays.


The lead Michael Carter-Williams has in the assist-per-game category in Division-I college basketball. Carter-Williams leads the country at 9.5 assists per game, placing him one full assist ahead of UCLA’s Larry Drew II and South Florida’s Anthony Collins, who both average 8.5 assists per game.

rom an individual national championship in track and field to a berth in the women’s lacrosse national championship and the men’s basketball team’s run to the Elite Eight, Syracuse athletics enjoyed some historic moments in 2012. The Daily Orange chose 24 of the top moments in Syracuse sports this year. Readers ranked their favorite moments online in the last week. The men’s basketball team is currently ranked No. 4 in the nation while the football team will close out the year at the Pinstripe Bowl. Here’s a look at the top 10 moments thus far as voted by the readers.

RYAN NASSIB SETS ALMOST ALL MAJOR SINGLESEASON AND CAREER QUARTERBACK RECORDS The career touchdowns list is the only Syracuse quarterback list that Nassib does not head. He owns the records for most passes, completions and yards, and his 3,748 yards of total offense in 2012 are good for the highest single-season total in SU history. His 68 career touchdown passes are just nine short of Donovan McNabb’s Orange and Big East record. Nassib is also second in career total offense with 9,215 yards in his four years under center at SU.

MEN’S SOCCER TO SWEET 16 After a three-win 2011 season the Orange was voted second-to-last in the Big East preseason coaches’ poll. Then a team welded together by long-suffering seniors and highly touted freshmen went 5-3 in conference play before nearly upsetting then-No. 7 Notre Dame in the Big East quarterfinals. The Orange squeaked into the NCAA tournament despite the loss, though, and upset then-No. 11 Cornell in the first round. The run continued in Richmond as Louis Clark’s 108th minute drive found the corner of the net and sent SU to the Sweet 16 for the first time in program history. The Orange nearly made it to the Elite Eight, only falling to Georgetown in the regional semis on penalty kicks. ziniu chen

WOMEN’S LACROSSE FIRST NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP GAME For more than 50 minutes during the national semifinal against top-seeded Florida on May 25, it appeared as though Syracuse would have to wait at least one more year for its first national championship appearance. But the Orange rallied back from a seven-goal deficit in the second half to win in overtime and advance to the final. There, SU was reacquainted with the stall tactics that have made Northwestern one of the most successful programs in all of college sports. The Wildcats used that strategy to come up with an 8-6 victory over Syracuse, but simply reaching the game was a major milestone for the Orange, which begins the 2013 season ranked No. 1 in the country.

FOOTBALL BECOMES BOWL ELIGIBLE WITH WIN OVER MISSOURI Down three with less than two minutes to go, Syracuse needed to go 81 yards for a touchdown to win its sixth game and become bowl eligible. Ryan Nassib hooked up with Alec Lemon four times to span all 81 yards and give the Orange a go-ahead touchdown. Two plays into Missouri’s ensuing drive Corbin Berkstresser threw an interception to seal the 31-27 victory for SU and clinch its second bowl appearance of the Doug Marrone era.

SU ANNOUNCES BIG EAST EXIT IN JULY 2013 Syracuse announced it agreed to a deal with the Big East that allows the school to leave the conference for the ACC in July 2013. The move means SU will leave a year early, as the conference requires a 27-month exit period. After negotiations, the athletic department agreed to pay $7.5 million to leave early. The $2.5 million more than conference bylaws require effectively bought the Orange an extra year in the ACC. Six more teams have announced their departure from the conference since. Texas Christian agreed to join before leaving without playing a game.

FOOTBALL CLINCHES SHARE OF BIG EAST CHAMPIONSHIP When Louisville knocked off Rutgers on Nov. 29, Syracuse clinched a share of the Big East championship. A 7-5 record meant the Orange had little shot of reaching a Bowl Championship Series game – as turned out to be true – but a share of its first conference championship since 2004 was still a monumental moment for the Doug Marrone era at SU. With Syracuse leaving the Big East for the Atlantic Coast Conference the Orange now has momentum heading into its new, more difficult conference.

BOEHEIM NO. 3 IN ALL-TIME WINS On Feb. 8, Jim Boeheim passed Dean Smith to become the third-winningest coach in Division-I history with 880. And it couldn’t have come against a more fitting opponent. Kris Joseph scored a career-high 29 points including a game-winning 3-pointer as Syracuse knocked off Georgetown 64-61 in overtime. Boeheim has won 16 games since then, putting him four wins away from becoming the only third coach with 900 wins and just six victories away from matching Bob Knight for second on the all-time wins list.

FOOTBALL UPSETS LOUISVILLE SU hosted the then-No. 11 Cardinals on Nov. 10, beating them to the tune of 45-26. The victory began a three-game winning streak with which SU finished the season to become bowl eligible. It was a historic day for the Orange. Alec Lemon’s nine catches and 176 yards with two touchdowns launched him up to fifth on SU’s all-time receiving touchdowns list, and Ryan Nassib became the Big East’s career completions leader, ending the senior-day upset with 738.

MEN’S BASKETBALL’S 20-0 START There are only so many firsts for Jim Boeheim, but last season’s undefeated start was the best in program history. The Jan. 16 71-63 win against Pittsburgh let the 2011-12 Orange pass the 1999-2000 squad for best all-time start. It was also Boeheim’s 876th career win, tying him for fourth all-time with former Kentucky legend Adolph Rupp. The following Saturday, Fab Melo’s suspension was announced. He missed the Notre Dame game in South Bend that evening and SU lost 67-58.

MEN’S BASKETBALL IN ELITE EIGHT The Fab Melo-less, No. 1-seeded Orange overcame a nail-biter against No. 16 UNC Asheville in its NCAA Tournament opener before wins against Kansas State and Wisconsin brought SU to within one game of the Final Four in New Orleans, where the Orange won the national title eight years ago. But Ohio State proved to be too much in the Elite Eight, emotionally ending the SU careers of Scoop Jardine and Kris Joseph and SU basketball’s winningest season ever.

came to The Daily Orange as a sophomore with no real journalism experience. I knew I wanted to make a career as a sports writer, but I didn’t know if I could do it. A year later, I started as an assistant sports editor and I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into. But after three semesters at 744 Ostrom Ave., I am leaving with a little more confidence. I learned a lot and met a lot of great people along the way. Ultimately, all the crazy hours were worth it, and I know I’ll never forget my time at The D.O. ALJ: Thanks for putting me on the ice hockey beat right away. I learned a lot that first semester and I owe a lot to you for giving me that chance. Tony: You pushed me to dig deeper in my reporting and it made a big difference. Thanks for teaching me how to approach a beat and get better stories. Brett: You assigned me my first enterprise stories and gave me the chance to do something different. You taught me a lot that semester and I started to see some of my writing and reporting improve. Thanks for everything. Cohen: You encouraged me to work in-house and gave me the chance to start out as an assistant. That encouragement and trust meant a lot to me, and gave me confidence as a writer and editor. Thanks for all of your help the last two years. Mark: You showed me a lot about writing, editing and how to run the section during our time together in sports. Thanks for always pushing the section and the paper every day. Treds: I still remember covering our first ice hockey game and writing our stories on deadline together in Goldstein two years ago. Our last lacrosse trip to Villanova with Marlin was pretty memorable too. It was great working with you on beats and in-house over two years.

Syracuse looks to strengthen shooting from beyond the arc By David Wilson ASST. COPY EDITOR

It’s tough to nitpick much during a nearly 40-point victory. But in the case of Syracuse’s 66-28 win over Wagner on Tuesday night, the offensive deficiencies were obvious: The Orange couldn’t knock down its 3-pointers. Who: Loyola “The 3-point Where: Carrier Dome shooting wasn’t When: Saturday, 1 p.m. great,” SU head coach Quentin Hillsman said after Tuesday’s game. “We started off 1-for-11. You’re kind of fighting an uphill battle from there.” Syracuse missed its first 10 3-point attempts and finished the game just 3-for-20 from beyond the arc –– the most obvious deficiency the Orange (8-1) needs to fix by the time it faces Loyola (Md.) (4-4) Saturday at 1 p.m. in the Carrier Dome. Entering Tuesday night’s game SU was shooting better than 30 percent from beyond the arc after shooting just 26.8 percent a year ago. Syracuse’s 29.8 percent 3-point-shooting clip is still an improvement from a year ago, but the Orange’s borderline elite long range shooting has made it look like a potential power this season. “What makes our team –– we can go high, we can go low,” SU guard Carmen Tyson-Thomas said. “… It helps us all come together as one and makes us Syracuse basketball.” Top-line shooting has helped make Syracuse an offensive powerhouse this season. Last year, the offense operated through Iasia Hemingway and Kayla Alexander in the high and low posts, respectively. Hemingway’s departure left the Orange without a major part of the offense, but that hole has quickly been filled by a trio of freshman guards, two of whom are shooting better than 29 percent from 3.


Alexander dominated down low last season, but she’s averaging more than 21 points per game this year because defenses have to key on SU’s shooters as well. “If they come double in I know that I can just pass it to my teammates outside who are going to knock it down,” Alexander said. “… If you double down low you’re going to leave wide open shooters. If you play up on our shooters you’re going have a presence down low with me and Keya (Leary) and Taylor (Ford).” The inside-out offense works both ways, though. The shooters get Alexander free inside, but on a day whern the center dominated the way that she did, the rest of the offense should have thrived. When Alexander is scoring at will, opponents are forced to double team, just as the Seahawks did on Tuesday. In theory, this gets shooters open on the perimeter. Just as it did Tuesday. “A lot of our open 3s come from throwing the ball inside and playing inside-out. She commands double and triple teams,” Hillsman said. “… We got a few looks early and there were open looks, and we took them and we just didn’t make them.” Fortunately, on Tuesday, it didn’t matter that Alexander was double- and triple-teamed, she was still able to score at will en route to a career-high 34 points. On a day that could have ended in disaster, the center bailed out the Orange and SU won with ease. “I mean, we’re missing shots, we always can depend on Kayla, dumping down to Kayla,” Tyson-Thomas said. “… We make sure we get her the ball, and we make sure we spread the floor also, so when she gets doubled down she can kick it back out, and when we’re not making the shots we can give it down low.” But Tuesday was just one of those days.

spencer bodian | contributing photographer CARMEN TYSON-THOMAS and Syracuse hope to straighten out their 3-point shooting issues when they take on Loyola (Md.) Saturday. SU was just 3-of-20 in Tuesday’s win. As Syracuse returned home for the first time after a seven-game road trip it was a hectic day. Classes, exams and papers were a game-day distraction for the first time in weeks. Still, the Orange got open shots and worked the ball around the perimeter well but just couldn’t get shots to fall. SU still won handily,

but it wasn’t always pretty. “Tonight we just got the ball moving early,” Hillsman said. “… Overall, it’s been one of those days where we just had a lot going on. It’s been a whirlwind of a day.” @DBWilson2

SU aiming to finish semester strong against No. 2 Clarkson By Jacob Klinger ASST. COPY EDITOR

Finals are looming, Winter Break beckons, a “well-deserved” rest is just days away. Syracuse has much to look ahead to. But before that, the team will face the No. 2 team in the country, Clarkson, this weekend. “These are the games that really count,” team captain Jacquie Greco said. “These are the Who: Clarkson games we kind of Where: Potsdam, N.Y. work all year for.” When: Friday, 7 p.m. SU (9-6-1, 4-1-1 College Hockey America) is in fine form heading into its last games of the semester having won four of its last five, and the team is fresh off a 4-3 upset over defending CHA champion Robert Morris. The Clarkson series presents a near-perfect opportunity for the Orange to cap its first half of the season with a national attention-grabbing upset. Doing so means stopping Canadian youth internationals Jaime Lee Rattray and Erin


Ambrose and scoring past 5-foot-9 goaltender Erica Howe. An upset against Clarkson could punctuate the season. Though head coach Paul Flanagan said the results themselves are not critical for this weekend, it’s important for the team to put together a strong showing. Anything less promises to sour the midseason break. “If you can leave feeling good about yourselves, win, lose or draw, you can leave after exams feeling pretty good. It just makes your break better and you come back feeling reinvigorated, feeling better about it,” Flanagan said. “So that’s all. You just don’t want to end on a real bad note. Just because it does, I know as a coach it’s dragging around for three weeks and it’s terrible.” But any chance the Orange had of catching a sleeping giant evaporated when the Golden Knights lost to a Colgate team with only three wins. Flanagan said he expects Clarkson to be reinvigorated when the Orange makes the trip to Potsdam, N.Y. But the Orange seniors have some history on their side, a hopeful reminder of what leaving campus on a high can do.

In December 2009, SU beat Princeton 4-3 and 1-0, with the second win coming in overtime. “It was one of the best things ever and it happened right before break, and we had so much confidence going into the next half of the season,” Greco said SU went on to upset then-No. 8 Cornell after the break, en route to the winningest season in program history. This season, Clarkson boasts a roster full of physical players with speed that can give the Orange a miserable weekend. Clarkson’s loss to Colgate is largely seen as a hangover loss after the Knights downed No. 3 Cornell the night before the game against lowly Colgate. Though that defeat served as a powerful wake-up call for Clarkson, it is something for the Orange to hold onto, Greco said. “Everyone is hearing about it,” Greco said. “‘Oh my god, like Clarkson just lost to Colgate, like what the heck.’ So we want to be that team, to be like ‘Clarkson just lost to Syracuse, oh my god,’ and it gives us a little more jump.” At a point in the season where lines appear

to be resettling, shots that weren’t going in are finding the back of the net and the team regains its swagger, the Clarkson game is somewhat timely. “You can feel it in the atmosphere,” center Holly Carrie-Mattimoe said. “You can feel it on the ice in practice. I guess, again, the intensity is up and everyone’s talking, everyone’s cheering people on.” Not that SU needs additional motivation. The Golden Knights’ ranking speaks for itself. The team can look at its record and think about proving itself on a national scale, CarrieMattimoe said. Wins against teams like Clarkson do just that. SU knows a powerhouse awaits, both in Potsdam on Friday and on Saturday at home. But, in pursuit of a dynamic win, the Orange can’t get caught up in its opponents’ ranking. “We can’t be intimidated, too,” forward Shiann Darkangelo said. “It’s just like any other game, we just kind of get ready to play. … We got to beat them more than anything.” @MrJacobK

Schwartzwalder Trophy not in play; SU begins bowl prep By Chris Iseman ASST. SPORTS EDITOR

NEW YORK – The Ben Schwartzwalder Trophy is no longer up for grabs. The George M. Steinbrenner Trophy has taken its place. The Schwartzwalder Trophy, named for former Syracuse head coach Ben Schwartzwalder, was given to the winner of the game between Syracuse and West Virginia from 1993 to 2011. The Mountaineers won the trophy 11 times, with the Orange taking it in eight seasons, including the last two. And it’ll remain in SU’s possession. The only trophy that will be given to the 2012 Pinstripe Bowl winner will be the Steinbrenner Trophy, named for the former New York Yankees owner. Yankees president Randy Levine said at a news conference Wednesday that before Steinbrenner died in 2010, he told Yankees management to make sure college football is played at Yankee Stadium. The Pinstripe Bowl made that happen. And SU won the inaugural bowl in 2010 against Kansas State. “I think one of the things that playing in a bowl game that I think we all have to be conscious of is right to the right of us the Steinbrenner Trophy,” Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone said Wednesday. “That’s why both teams are here.” So while the Schwartzwalder Trophy was a major part of the matchup of Syracuse and West Virginia for close to two decades, ownership of the award is no longer in play. The Orange and Mountaineers will battle it out for a new trophy, one Marrone said is the only trophy that matters. “That’s what we’re playing for,” Marrone said. “I think that’s very important that we all understand that.”

Bowl practices serve dual purposes Teams have 15 practices leading into the Pinstripe Bowl, giving the coaches time to see where young players are in their development before

focusing solely on winning the bowl game. West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen, whose Mountaineers beat Clemson 70-33 in the Orange Bowl last season, said Wednesday that younger players will see time on the practice field before Holgorsen installs his game plan for Syracuse. “You do have to practice your young kids. You get an opportunity to practice a lot and get those guys out there on the practice field and work them a little bit,” Holgorsen said. “But then at some point, you’ve got to cut it off and you’ve got to prepare for the game.” Marrone said he has a plan for practices in place, but right now is focused on his players finishing their semesters off strong academically. He said he hasn’t spoken to the team’s trainers about the health of all his players, but he expects them to all be ready because they were all healthy toward the end of the year. “We have a schedule made up and our kids have finals and tutors, and that’s what I’m more concerned about right now more than practicing for the bowl game,” Marrone said, “making sure our kids finish up strong academically.”

No break for SU coaches Marrone said Wednesday that he hasn’t stopped and had a break since Syracuse’s win over Temple in the regular-season finale. He’s spent time on the road recruiting during what he called a “critical” time of the year. Even though the Orange completely turned its season around to go 5-1 in its final six games, Marrone said he hasn’t had time to stop and think about it. “I know a lot of people have been having a break and everything else like that,” Marrone said. “It’s something we’ll talk about after everything is over with, recruiting and all of those things. There’s a lot going on.” @chris_iseman

Officials from both schools, the New York Yankees and the Pinstripe Bowl gathered at Yankee Stadium for a news conference on Wednesday. On Dec. 29, the bowl will be a matchup of two teams with a long history. “We’re excited. Our kids are excited. Both teams know each other,” SU head coach Doug Marrone said. “I think it’s going to be an outstanding game. I do believe it’ll be the best game so far with the Pinstripe Bowl.” Last season, Syracuse upset then-No. 11 West Virginia 49-23.

East and routed Clemson 70-33 in the Orange Bowl. Head coach Dana Holgorsen said Wednesday that last year’s loss to Syracuse gives his players something extra to play for. This could be their final chance to avenge that loss, as the teams can now only meet in nonconference or postseason play. “Hopefully our experience playing Syracuse and playing in New York will be better than last year, which was not very pleasant for West Virginia when Syracuse got the best of us,” Holgorsen said. “I think we’re going to be motivated to play based on what happened last year.” There had been speculation that Pinstripe Bowl officials would choose Pittsburgh to restore the long rivalry between the Panthers and Mountaineers. But on Wednesday, the idea of having the Orange in the Pinstripe Bowl was clearly the more enticing option. Several times, officials referenced each

team’s fan base in the New York area as a reason why this matchup was the most appealing option for this season’s game. Marrone also said it’s a great opportunity for his players’ families to watch them in a bowl game without having to worry about extensive travel. Travel would have been a concern if SU went to the Belk Bowl in Charlotte, N.C., or the BBVA Compass Bowl in Birmingham, Ala. Not one player on the Orange’s roster is from those states. This gives Syracuse a final chance to play in the Bronx, N.Y., before going to the Atlantic Coast Conference. “We talk about ourselves as being New York’s College Team, and that’s to represent the entire state,” athletic director Daryl Gross said. “But obviously the Empire State and New York City go hand in hand with everything we talk about doing and how we brand ourselves and how we feel about ourselves.” The game itself stands to have a high-scoring result. Both teams feature explosive, fast-paced prolific offenses that put plenty of points on the board. West Virginia averages 41.6 points per game, good for seventh in the nation. Quarterback Geno Smith was a Heisman Trophy candidate early in the season before the Mountaineers hit their struggles and lost five-straight

games in conference play. The Orange’s no-huddle offense sent Syracuse surging midway through the season. And SU quarterback Ryan Nassib became the program’s all-time leader in passing yards. The Orange averages 29 points per game. “I think out of all the bowl games,” Marrone said, “I think you’re going to see two of the best quarterbacks in college football.” And for Marrone, it’s a chance to coach one more time in the borough where he grew up. He said on Wednesday that he was probably the most excited person there, and his excitement was palpable when he stepped to the podium. His connections to the Bronx – and the Yankees – run deep. One of the workers at the news conference has a younger brother who played football with Marrone when they were growing up. Marrone’s grandfather was an usher at the old Yankee Stadium. Now he has another chance to coach at the stadium. His players have one last chance to play in New York City. And Holgorsen and West Virginia have one final chance to avenge their loss to the Orange. It’s the brief return of a deep-rooted rivalry. “I am jacked about this,” Marrone said. “I truly am excited about being here.” @chris_iseman

Former rivals SU, WVU to meet in bowl By Chris Iseman ASST. SPORTS EDITOR

NEW YORK – A lot has happened since the last time Syracuse played West Virginia. The Orange suffered a collapse after its upset win over the Mountaineers in 2011, one that carried into this season before the team finished the year on a dominant 5-1 run. West Virginia moved to the Big 12 and football dominance didn’t come as easily as it fell to the bottom of the conference. The rivalry between Syracuse and WVU ended, only to be reignited in the 2012 New Era Pinstripe Bowl.

NEW YORK — Marquis Spruill is currently eligible to play in the Pinstripe Bowl, Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone said Wednesday. Spruill was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest after he and teammate Steve Rene were arrested Sunday. Rene, who is out for the season after undergoing surgery for an upperbody injury, was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Speaking after a news conference at Yankee Stadium, Marrone said he was disappointed in his players’ behavior but will handle it internally. Spruill and Rene will appear in court on Dec. 19, 10 days before the Pinstripe Bowl. “Obviously we’re disappointed in the behavior of both of our players,” Marrone said. “I’ll handle it internally. That’s really it.” Spruill, an outside linebacker, is crucial to the SU defense and ranks fourth on the team in tackles. “Just like for all our players, you have to earn that right and keep going in the right direction, and we’ll handle things internally,” Marrone said. “Up until the point, we expect our players to act in a proper fashion and with the expectations of our school because we represent Syracuse University. We’re disappointed in what has occurred.”
