Welcome to Bill of Rights Day!

On December 15, 1791, Virginia ratified the first ten amendments of the Constitution. With this, the amendments reached the requisite number of state ratifications necessary to become part of the Constitution. Known as the Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments outline the rights of citizens vis-à-vis the federal government. They guarantee that citizens have civil rights and liberties such as freedom of speech, press, and religion; they establish rules for due process of law; they confirm that citizens have rights beyond those spelled out in the Constitution; and they affirm that powers not delegated to the federal government are left to the people and states. It is on today's anniversary of the ratification and implementation of the Bill of Rights that we celebrate Bill of Rights Day.

Syracuse basketball vs. Oregon in South Dakota: 5 Key Things to Know (PS; Waters)


The University of Oregon and Syracuse University are located 2,802 miles apart on opposite ends of the United States.

On Sunday, the Syracuse Orange and the Oregon Ducks will split the difference and meet each other in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The made-for-TV event marks just the second meeting between the two schools. Oregon beat Syracuse, 80-65, in the 2K Empire Classic at Madison Square on Nov. 16, 2018.

Syracuse and Oregon are both looking for key wins to boost their respective resumes. Syracuse is 7-3 after last Saturday’s win at Georgetown, but the Orange is still looking for a win over a team in the Top 80 of the NCAA’s NET rankings. Oregon brings a 7-2 record into Sunday’s game.

Dana Altman is in his 14th season as the head coach at Oregon after previous stints at Kansas State and Creighton. He has recorded over 700 wins in his coaching career. His active streak of 26 consecutive winning seasons is matched only by Michigan State’s Tom Izzo and Kansas’ Bill Self.

The Syracuse-Oregon game is scheduled to tip-off at 1 p.m. (Eastern) on the CBS Sports Network.

Here are 5 Key Things to Know about the matchup:

Steals and deals

It’s the holiday season and everyone is looking for steals. So is the Syracuse Orange, but it’s a completely kind of steal than your department store bargain.

No, the Orange has been successful this season when taking the ball out of its opponents’ hands. Syracuse is averaging 9.1 steals per game. That ranks 40th in the country.

The steals have been important. They help generate offense for Syracuse. In Saturday’s win over Georgetown, Syracuse scored 20 points off the Hoyas’ 14 turnovers. Syracuse had 12 steals in that game; one off the Orange’s season high which came against New Hampshire.

With slim margin of error, SU has a chance to flip KenPom’s preseason prediction (PS; $; Waters)

Before the start of Syracuse’s 2023-24 basketball season, the data churning out of noted statistician Ken Pomeroy’s computer had dire news for the Orange.

Pomeroy’s KenPom.com website had generated a preseason prediction for Syracuse that had the Orange going 12-17. That prediction didn’t include second- and third-round games in the Maui Invitational because a computer can’t predict a game without knowing the opponent. When Syracuse’s games against Gonzaga and Chaminade were known, KenPom’s prediction went to 13-18.

The key to Syracuse’s season to date has been its ability to take games that figured to be close losses — LSU and Georgetown — and turn them into wins.

Pomeroy’s ratings and their prediction 12-17 for Syracuse was shocking on the face of it. After all, Syracuse had suffered just one losing season in the last 50 years. That came two years ago when the Orange finished barely under .500 at 16-17.

However, a game-by-game examination showed that Pomeroy had Syracuse playing in a high number of games with narrow margins -- and with the Orange coming out on the losing end of a large percentage of those games.

Of the 29 games in Pomeroy’s preseason predictions, he had Syracuse involved in 13 that figured to be decided by five points or less. The computer had Syracuse going 4-9 in those games.

If Syracuse was just marginally better than Pomeroy’s statistics suggested, the Orange could finish 16-13 just by flipping the results in four games and going 8-5 in those narrow-margin games.

Just 10 games into the season and Syracuse has already won two games that KenPom had down as losses before the season. On the morning of SU’s opener against New Hampshire, KenPom had Syracuse losing to LSU by four points and to Georgetown by one.

Thus, a Syracuse team that the data-driven prediction thought would be 5-5 at this point is 7-3 heading into a key game against Oregon on Sunday in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Sunday offers one more opportunity to flip a loss. Syracuse is a five-point underdog, according to KenPom.com.

Syracuse basketball game at North Carolina gets new start time (PS; Waters)

The Syracuse Orange’s basketball game at North Carolina on Saturday, Jan. 13, has a new start time.

Originally scheduled to tip-off at 1 p.m., the start of the Syracuse-North Carolina game at the Dean E. Smith Center has been moved up to noon. The game will still be televised on ESPN.

No reason has been given for the time change, but it coincides with another game being televised by ESPN getting a new tip-off time.

Kentucky and Texas A&M were scheduled to start at 3 p.m. on ESPN, but that game will now begin at 2 p.m.

That Saturday is the first day in the NFL’s Wild Card weekend. There are two wild-card games scheduled for Jan. 13. One starts at 4:30 on NBC. The other will be televised on Peacock, but there’s no kickoff time yet.

The college football seasons ends on Monday, Jan. 8 with the national championship game.

North Carolina and Syracuse will also meet on Feb. 13 at the JMA Wireless Dome. That game starts at 7 p.m.


The Ostrom Avenue Podcast Episode 164: Syracuse Basketball Roundtable with Johnny Gadamowitz (waer.org; podcast; Ostrom Ave Podcast)

Ethan Frank, Jordan Leonard, and Hudson Ridley are joined by pod alum and friend of the program Johnny Gadamowitz from the Field of 68 Media Network to discuss where Adrian Autry and Syracuse stand after 10 games, how SU's rotations are different and could shake out moving into conference play, how much Sunday's game against Oregon matters, Johnny's favorite memories from his time on the show, and more!

A Syracuse basketball podcast: What’s a Hoya? )TNIAAM; podcast; Szuba, Chiappone & De Guzman)

The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team earned a decided 80-68 win over the Georgetown Hoyas. The Orange men answered the call to arms in the storied rivalry between the two historic programs as Syracuse was able to get on the right side of the 99th overall meeting.

To recap the game, we brought on our own Dom Chiappone who was on site from the Capital One Arena to cover the game as well as Christian De Guzman, the Quadir Copeland of TNIAAM.

Topics of the conversation include:

  • Going inside Capital One Arena with Dom’s retelling
  • This series still has some bite...
  • But it also doesn’t help the résumé from a scheduling standpoint
  • While we’re at it, why not restart the Syracuse-UConn rivalry?
  • JJ Starling headlines the game, but the Syracuse bench steps up
  • Copeland and Mounir Hima play important roles
  • The quandary with the center position
  • Syracuse kept Georgetown at bay late with Mintz on the bench
  • Benny Williams couldn’t help against Cornell but he could against Georgetown
  • Rebounding still a major key heading into conference play
  • What does Syracuse have to do to build an NCAA Tournament résumé?

Syracuse men’s basketball: Adrian Autry 1⁄4 zip tracker (TNIIAM; Wall)

As the Syracuse Orange prepare to take on the Oregon Ducks this Sunday, it’s a good time for us to check on the fashion choices of new Head Coach Adrian Autry.

Autry’s preferred the blue and grey early on this season, but he’s also shown that he’ll mix things up from game to game in terms of color and the Syracuse logo.

The white 1⁄4 zip with a Syracuse wordmark seems to be a new addition to the coaches wardrobe this season and it’s interesting to see that with the team’s full-time return to the script. We’d like to see a white script Syracuse so we’ll certainly be keeping an eye on the sideline the rest of the way.

Ralph’s Christmas shoe drive sets a new record. ‘People with souls have some to spare’ (PS; Cazentre)

As she helped load boxes and bags of sneakers, sandals, boots and other footwear onto a Rescue Mission truck this morning, volunteer Mary Beth Gusano reflected on the spirit of giving in Central New York.

“People with souls have some to spare,” Gusano said.

That spirit helped Ralph Rotella’s annual Christmas shoe drive bring in a new record number of pairs this year. The 38,841 pairs broke the record of 37,370 set in 2021.

Each year, Rotella collects, cleans and repairs donated shoes at his shop, Discount Shoe Repair, at 114 E. Washington St. in downtown Syracuse. They are then picked up by the Syracuse Rescue Mission, which gives many to the homeless people and other clients it serves, and sells others to raise money in its Thrifty Shopper stores. Any that can’t be used, usually fewer than 10%, are recycled.

This is the 13th year Rotella has run the drive. In its first year, he collected 35 pairs. This year’s collections bring the grand total to 211,709 since the drive began.

“With luck, we can get to a quarter of a million next year,” said Randy Beach, Rotella’s friend, helper and chief cheerleader for the drive. “That means a lot of people who need shoes are getting them.”

City starts partial demolition of historic Syracuse house over owner’s objections (PS; Boyer)

A contractor hired by the city of Syracuse began to partially demolish the historic Gillett House on Thursday morning, a move that’s bringing considerable anxiety for the developer planning to renovate it.

The house at 515 W. Onondaga St., built in 1875 by Union Army Capt. William Gillett, is one of three buildings at the intersection with South Avenue that are owned by Strathmore Community Development Group. The company purchased the house, an adjacent vacant church and the church’s parish house for a combined $185,000 in an effort to save them from complete demolition.

Plans for restoration include office space and apartments in the smaller buildings and a brewery in the church. Last year, the state announced a $1,217,000 Downtown Revitalization Initiative grant for the project.

But virtually no work to rehab Gillett House has taken place, and city officials became alarmed about the extent of the deterioration earlier this year. The building’s rear section collapsed several years ago, leaving the back portion open to the elements, wildlife and squatters.

The code enforcement office issued an emergency partial demolition order in September, and began discussions with Strathmore Community Development about whether the private developer could get financing and its contractor lined up to do the work instead of the city’s contractor. But after a couple of months of talks, the city decided to move forward with its own contractor.
