Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse and Colgate cut ties to their football rivalry 23 years ago. It was probably for good reason. In what can only be described as a ‘nasty’ game in every way, the Orangemen routed the Raiders 52-6 on Oct. 24, 1987, in the Carrier Dome. Despite the storied rivalry creating some emotions, Colgate, an I-AA school, did not have enough to compete with Syracuse, which had improved to 7-0 on the season. For the Orangemen, Colgate was just the game between a Penn State victory the week before and a game against Pittsburgh the next week. In the grand scheme of things, it’s probably one of the least memorable games in an 11-0-1 season for Syracuse that ended with a tie against Auburn in the Sugar Bowl. But boy, did it spur up the emotions during the game. While Colgate didn’t have the physical talent the Orangemen had, the players stood their ground. And then some, said Syracuse defensive tackle Ted Gregory, who left the game with a bruised knee after what he considered to be a cheap shot. ‘They obviously didn’t come to play football, and the score indicated it,’ Gregory told the (Albany) Times Union after the game. ‘They were terrible. I’m very complimentary to the opposing team, always. This is the first time … I have absolutely no respect.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Syracuse Athletic Director Jake Crouthamel decided this would be the last meeting between Syracuse and Colgate, due to the different paths the two schools were taking athletically. Colgate was a pretty good I-AA team, even defeating I-A school Army earlier in 1987, but the Orangemen entered this game ranked No. 9 in the nation after defeating Joe Paterno’s Penn State team, 48-21. After the result that occurred that Saturday, it was probably a good idea. ‘Personally I’m sorry to see the series end because I’m an old-timer,’ Colgate head coach Fred Dunlap said to the Times Union. ‘But if Syracuse is going to be in the Top 10, it’s certainly not a good thing.’ Despite the extracurricular activities, which included two ejections (one from each team), the game had a lot of positives for the Orangemen. The offense produced 560 total yards, proving it could avoid Colgate being a trap game in between two tough opponents. Quarterback Don McPherson had people talking Heisman Trophy after his performance. He went 10-for-11 for 244 yards and four touchdowns. His top target, wide receiver Tommy Kane, went for 193 yards and all four of McPherson’s touchdowns. The ability of the Orangemen to not overlook Colgate and to cruise to a blowout may have done wonders for SU’s fate the rest of the season. The two-week period of defeating Penn State and then avoiding a letdown against the Raiders sent Syracuse into Pittsburgh as confident as it could have been. Said McPherson to the Times Union after the game: ‘The guys are playing very good football right now. Right now, I think we’re unstoppable.’ —Compiled by Asst.

Students have partnered with a pair of professors who recently launched a new project to confront the global water crisis, which has left nearly 800 million people without access to safe drinking water.Professor Massoud Pirbazari, a water purification expert, joined professor Thieo Hogen-Esch, as well as Hogen-Esch’s team at the USC Loker Hydrocarbon Research Institute, to help improve the water supply for people around the world deprived of access to clean water. According to Water.org, more than 3 million people die each year of water-related diseases, with nearly all of these deaths occurring in the developing world.Viv Pitter, a senior majoring in environmental engineering who worked on this initiative, said impure water has the potential to affect entire communities.“Just because you contract one disease doesn’t mean you won’t contract another. And because they are in the water, diseases can affect entire communities,” Pitter said.The current method of water purification involves running water over a thin membrane that removes impurities in the water. However, these membranes can clog frequently, requiring high-energy input and are often rendered unusable.“In order to make [the membranes] cost-effective and usable, you have to somehow scientifically modify the membrane to make them less prone to clogging and fouling,” Pirbazari said. “Even just 20 percent less energy would be very attractive to the water industries.”Pirbazari also stressed the importance of water purification other than filtration. He particularly noted desalination, the process of removing salt from the water supply.“It doesn’t have to be seawater desalination, it could be desalination for water reuse to turn it into drinking water,” Pirbazari said. “It is also for agricultural purposes. It is useful for practically everything. You can take wastewater and further treat it for irrigation.”Kirsten Rice, a senior majoring in environmental and mechanical engineering, expressed optimism at increasing the availability of water filtering technology. While working with Pirbazari, Rice was able to design a water filter constructed out of sand and gravel. In tests, the filter was able to remove nearly all of a harmful bacteria and three-quarters of the element arsenic contained in the water.With the water crisis being most serious in developing countries, Rice described the importance of creating simple mechanisms, such as her sand and gravel filter, particularly as the global population grows and water resources are further strained.“Taking something as simple as sand and gravel [is important] because it can be applied all over the world without an economic cost,” Rice said.Yet Rice also noted that simply being able to purify water is not enough to confront the water crisis.“There’s still a limited amount of water — it has to be imported,” Rice said. “There’s greater demand. We need to work on conserving water.”Pirbazari has been heavily involved in engaging undergraduate students in research. Both Pitter and Rice described their work with him on water purification as very rewarding. Rice said that Pirbazari encouraged undergraduate students to take a leading role in carrying out research.“Dr. Pirbazari wanted his undergrads to become involved in their own research. We designed our own experiments, recorded our own data and analyzed our results,” Rice said. “We worked together as a team with Dr. Pirbazari.”According to Pirbazari, it is important for youth to recognize the significance of this water crisis.“Young people really have to know this and further their understanding of this very important issue,” Pirbazari said.
The second round featured plenty of drama.It started early with the news that Tiger Woods was not going to play into the weekend, as he withdrew before Friday’s round with an oblique strain.The drama continued with a weather delay that lasted just over 30 minutes, and a penalty. Rory McIlroy was assessed a two-stroke penalty just as he was chipping away at the leaderboard. McIlroy hit his tee shot on the par-3 14th hole into the green-side bunker. Before he took his approach shot, he removed what he thought was a stone or other object but it turned out to be sand. After alerting the rules official, he was given the penalty.Rory McIlroy thought he was removing a loose impediment from a bunker, but then realized it was just sand.He alerted a rules official and was given a two-shot penalty.He was three back of the lead at the time of the penalty. pic.twitter.com/Ayp8zWw9Ei— PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) August 9, 2019However, the drama took another turn when the penalty was ultimately rescinded after play finished.

The other is whether they should be offered in the first place. None of your poll choices reflects my opinion.

Don’t forget this is not a scientific poll and the margin of error using the sample size is about 5 or 6 percent (possibly more if you consider the % voting for the last choice). Good luck with what ever presentation you are trying to put together! Report Reply +2 Vote up Vote down CueballSumnernewscow 94p · 367 weeks ago People. It’s a friendly little inner active Internet poll for the entertainment of Sumner Newscow readers. Nothing more. If I wanted to make it scientific, I’d hire Gallop. As far as agendas are concerned, I have none. I’m usually challenged to come up with a poll question. If you have an idea for a poll question I’m open for suggestions.

I graduated in the 60’s and we had 8 hr classes, what is so wrong with 8 hrs? We still had sports activity’s and kids still went to college. Block hours is a babysitter. Maybe some board members remembers that not sure if some of them go back that far.

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments The Wellington school board recently voted to do away with weighted honors classes. How do you feel about the decision? Good idea. There was too much politics involved with Wellington’s system. Terrible idea. No weighted honors classes? Really???? I’m not sure. Let’s see what Principal Adams does as an alternative. I’m more worried about the overall USD 353 curriculum, not honors classes. It doesn’t matter. An education is only what a student puts into it.
