Welcome to Election Day!

Election Day is a day set aside in the United States for the general election of federal public officials, which include the president, vice president, and members of Congress. It takes place on "the Tuesday next after the first Monday in the month of November," which translates to the first Tuesday after November 1, which falls sometime between November 2 and November 8. The presidential election is held every four years, during years that are divisible by four. Elections for members of the US House of Representatives and US Senate are held every two years: all Representatives are up for election each election, as they serve two-year terms, while the elections of Senators are staggered, with only a third of them being up at a time for election to their six-year terms. The elections that take place halfway between a president's term are called midterm elections.

SU News

Offensive Woes continue SU Football, QB Garrett Shrader's status is still unknown (; Croston & Wenskoski)

Syracuse football’s (6-3, 3-2 ACC) fall from grace (and the national rankings) has officially become worrisome. Not only did the Orange lose to a Pitt team on Saturday that has a losing conference record, but they were unable to get offensive momentum started at any point in the game.

SU did not have a single touchdown in the loss, relying on three field goals from kicker Andre Szymt to muster their 9 points. The last time that Syracuse did not score a touchdown in a game was last year against Louisville, a game they lost 41 to 3. They went 3 for 14 on third down opportunities, and had 145 total yards compared to Pitt’s 339.

What has happened to an SU offense that looked dominant in their first six games of the season? Well, fingers could be pointed to the loss of QB1 Garrett Shrader, who did not play against Pitt (and has been sidelined since the second half of Notre Dame) or to the silencing of RB Sean Tucker.


Babers says Shrader has an injury team is 'sensitive to' (PS; $; Leiker)

Dino Babers put on his best poker face Monday when asked about Syracuse football’s starting quarterback heading into its final home game of the season.

Redshirt junior Garrett Shrader, who started the first eight games of the season for SU, has now missed six-straight quarters of play with an undisclosed injury. The only injury Babers has ruled out is a concussion.

When asked if Shrader’s injury is a lower-body one, as it’s believed to be, Babers continued to hedge specifics.

“I would say that he’s got an owie that we’re sensitive to,” he said.

Redshirt freshman transfer Carlos Del Rio-Wilson made his first collegiate start at Pitt. He received the entirety of first-team snaps last week, Babers said postgame, and warmed up with the first-team offense.

Shrader also went through warm-ups with the team, working with second-string center Josh Ilaoa, but ultimately spent the game on the sideline in street clothes. He did not appear at 100% based on his mobility in warm-ups.

“It was one of those things, ‘Garrett, go out there and see how you feel,’ ” Babers said. “And besides that, it’s also us watching him. He doesn’t get the only vote because we already know what his vote’s gonna be. We gotta watch him, and then based off of that the trainers and all that kind of stuff, we’ll come to a decision.”

Mike Norvell talks Miami blowout, previews Syracuse at Monday presser (; Mire)

Florida State head coach Mike Norvell held his weekly presser on Monday after coming off a landslide 45-3 victory over the Miami Hurricanes last Saturday. The Noles jumped back into the No. 25 spot after falling out during their three-game losing streak in October.

It was a record-setting game marking the largest margin of victory over the Canes on the road in series history.

The Noles look to face the Syracuse Orange (6-3, 3-2 ACC) on the road and are currently favored in the JMA Wireless Dome. The Orange are coming off a 19-9 loss against Pittsburg last weekend.

Norvell said he was happy with Saturday’s outcome saying that “Every time you have a big emotional game and rivalry on the road, to go down and play as we did, it was definitely big for the program” noting that their game against Syracuse is no cakewalk.

Norvell said that the team came back with intensity in practice on Sunday and that he’s excited to attack this week which has been an ongoing trend throughout the season. He said he looks forward to the week ahead and that “It’s about that steady and consistent growth and improvement, and that is our objective, and that is our daily focus.”

“It’s what we want our program to be.”

Norvell had a candid moment during Saturday’s broadcast where he was seen calming down wide receiver Duece Spann after a penalty where he seemed incredibly frustrated. He said that he wants his players to be in control of their emotions and that,

Syracuse football: Orange open as 6.5 point underdogs against Florida State (TNIAAM; Haller)

After whatever happened in Pittsburgh on Saturday, the Syracuse Orange are now 6-3 on the season. It’s a record that is more impressive than was expected, and frankly well ahead of where the oddsmakers had us. But three consecutive losses after six straight wins is enough to cause some hesitancy in the fanbase. The Orange look to get back on track this weekend against the Florida State Seminoles, a team historically the better, bigger and faster than the Orange in an 8pm kickoff from the JMA Dome.

Per DraftKings , the Orange have opened at -6.5 point underdogs against FSU on Sunday. The line has since pushed to a full touchdown and extra point, at 7 points. It’s understandable after the Seminoles come off a 45-3 drubbing of the Miami Hurricanes, and the Orange are coming off the 19-9 performance against Pitt, while working through some injury issues and confusion as to who’s healthy on the roster and where. The Seminoles are 7-2 against the spread this year but only 4-5 hitting the over, while Syracuse sits at 6-3 while only 3-6 at hitting the over.

The over/under is set at and held at 51.5, which seems like a “take the under” type of call. The Syracuse defense is the strength of the squad, and looks primed to at least hold the Seminoles to less than what they did against Miami. Unless the oddsmakers think that the Syracuse offense will look much better than they have these last two weeks, reaching the over seems a bit of a stretch.

Syracuse football's struggles in the rushing game proved to be the difference against Pitt. The loss is the third straight for the Orange, who drop to 6-3 after a 6-0 start.

Good morning, everybody. Appreciate you being here. I'll go ahead and kind of reflect back for the weekend. It was a great win. Anytime you have a big emotional game, rivalry game, on the road, to go down and play and dominate like we did, it was definitely big for the program. It was big for the young men that are in that room.

It's something that we talk about, being a year-round process to go and play your best in those games and in that game. To be able to learn a lot of lessons, I thought we put together a complete game. It was a game that we played 60 minutes. It wasn't perfect. We had mistakes that showed up throughout, but the response of our guys, the mindset, the physicality, the toughness, it was a great game to be a part of. I thought you saw a team that really played well together. It was complementary football. All three phases did their part, and I think that was indicative of the final score.

But was proud of our team. We got back yesterday. We enjoyed that game. The trip home was a nice one, and I thought our guys came to work on Sunday with a real purpose to get better. We watched the film, celebrated the good, encouraged the steps that were taken throughout the course of last week. We've got to continue to grow from that, and you see the potential. You see the opportunities that we have when we play to that level, and now we get a chance to go get better. That was a major part of our focus as a staff. It's still just about us.

This week we play our last ACC game on the road, challenging place to play against another talented football team. Syracuse has done a really good job throughout this year. They've dealt with a couple of injuries here these last few weeks and have had some close games where they come up just a little short. But there's no question about it, this is a really good team that we're going to go play. Once again, it's not so much about them, it's about what we do and us as a football team, continuing to take the proper steps for improvement. But I'm very proud of our team, and I thought it was a great game, and I'm looking forward to watching them prepare here this week.

Q. You praised the team after the game for the way they kind of went into the game with passion but also control. What did you see from them after the game and then also Sunday when you guys came back?

Oh, it was the same. We want to celebrate the good. Anybody can point to being passionate whenever you're trying to correct somebody, but it's also whenever you see a young man execute with the right fundamentals, the right technique, when they prepare the right way -- I told them after the game, I knew in pregame, when we came off the field in pregame and we were in that locker room, it was -- like you felt it. You knew there was a purpose. It's not that we haven't done that before, but it was just like, man, this is -- these guys are ready. It was an emotional beginning when you get to that game, but all our guys, I thought their focus, their control. There were many opportunities that showed up in that game where we could have been reactive and reacted, (indiscernible) that showed up, and we were able to learn through that, as well. But I thought our guys, the discipline, the focus, I mean, it was impressive. When they came back yesterday, I thought last night, our Sunday practice was -- there was an intensity in that Sunday practice, and it was an opportunity for us to grow, and I thought we took advantage of that. I'm looking forward to watching this week of work. Our guys have -- you build confidence through work. You build it through experiences that you have. It's about applying those lessons. I think our guys understand the importance of this step that's in front of us, and we've got to go work for it.

https://floridastate./news/where-could-the-florida-state-football-team-go-bowling- (; Weiler)

For the first time under Mike Norvell and just the second time in the last five seasons, the Florida State football team will be in a bowl this year.

The Seminoles won their sixth game in blowout fashion Saturday at Miami, clinching bowl eligibility while putting the Hurricanes' bowl chances on life support.

Now, the talk can turn to where FSU could be headed this bowl season. There are a few nearby bowl locations that FSU fans in the state could flock to and some others all over the country, which could make for fun December getaways.

First, here's the full list of the bowls that the ACC is affiliated with for the 2022-23 bowl season.

ReliaQuest BowlMonday, Jan. 2/NoonTampa, Fla.ACC or Big Ten vs. SEC

So where do various college football analysts have FSU headed this bowl season? Let's take a look at the various projections.
ESPN has two writers, Mark Schlabach and Kyle Bonagura, offer up weekly bowl projections. In their latest update released Sunday, Bonagura has FSU going to the Big Apple and playing Maryland in the Pinstripe Bowl, while Schlabach has FSU staying in-state and playing in the Gator Bowl vs. South Carolina.
If the former winds up being correct, it would be FSU's first time in the Pinstripe Bowl, which started in 2010.
If the latter came true, it would be FSU's first in-state bowl game since 2016 and its first trip to the Gator Bowl since 2009 for Bobby Bowden's final game.
CBS Sports
Jerry Palm does the prognosticating for CBS Sports' bowl projections. He has FSU taking on an in-state opponent, UCF, but has them doing so out of state in the Military Bowl. The Seminoles have faced the Knights only one time, beating them 46-14 in 1995.
FSU has never played in the Military Bowl, which began as the EagleBank Bowl in 2008.

Week 10 was a big week for several schools in the ACC with Louisville, Florida State, and Duke all winning their sixth games of the season and becoming bowl eligible. Elsewhere in the ACC Georgia Tech pulled off some late-game magic as they came from two scores down in the fourth quarter to defeat Virginia Tech. North Carolina stays hot as they hung on to defeat Virginia. In Raleigh, NC State extended its home winning streak to 16 games after freshman quarterback MJ Morris lead the Wolfpack to victory over a ranked Wake Forest team.

Sportswrap: Football becomes bowl eligible, soccer teams fall in ACC tournament (dukechronicle; Staff)


With their 38-31 win against Boston College, the Blue Devils clinched bowl eligibility for the first time since 2018. The victory came courtesy of a 232-yard effort on the ground, jump-started by an early 60-yard rushing touchdown from quarterback Riley Leonard, his third 50-yard scoring run of the season. The Eagles made a push in the second half, closing gaps of 15 and 17 points, but Duke (6-3, 3-2 in the ACC) kept them at arm's length, never giving up the lead it took about 11 minutes into the matchup. Now, the Blue Devils sit solidly at second in the ACC Coastal Division in head coach Mike Elko’s first season, a miraculous turnaround for the group. They will have a chance to keep that miracle going Saturday, when they welcome a bottom-of-the-Coastal Virginia Tech team to Durham. -Sasha Richie

Women's soccer

The Blue Devils fought until the very end Thursday night in the ACC tournament semifinals against North Carolina. Duke held the Tar Heels to no goals in both halves and in both overtimes, ultimately ending the night in a 0-0 draw. However, the effort on the field, led by a defensive and tactically strong performance, was not enough, as the Blue Devils fell in penalty kicks, 7-6. As it did not advance to the tournament final Sunday afternoon, Duke now waits to hear its seeding in the NCAA tournament at Selection Show Monday, Nov. 7. -Ana Young

Men's soccer

Duke’s remarkable unbeaten run has finally found its end. Under the lights Sunday evening, the first-seeded Blue Devils met their match in Clemson, which outhustled and outplayed head coach John Kerr’s group en route to a commanding 2-0 victory. Top scorer Shakur Mohammed was kept quiet and starved of service throughout 90 minutes and the usually solid midfield duo of Kenan Hot and Peter Stroud struggled to find its footing. The result ends Duke’s hopes of a first ACC tournament title since 2006 and begins the wait for the NCAA tournament, slated to begin later this month. -Andrew Long

Clemson Football: This season isn’t over (; Chancey)

The last ten years of Clemson football have been the best. Two national championships, multiple playoff appearances, multiple ACC championships, and a long streak of ten-win seasons.

Last year’s ‘down’ season when the Tigers did not go to the playoff has made fans hungrier than ever to get back to that lofty goal. For much of the 2022 season, it looked like the Tigers had righted the ship and they had a good shot to finish in the Top 4.

The chances of a return to the playoffs took a major hit Saturday night, as Clemson was defeated by the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, and wasn’t remotely close. The Tigers were exposed at every level.

The sting of this loss has obscured a noteworthy achievement for the Tigers. When the Syracuse Orange lost to the Pittsburgh Panthers Saturday afternoon, it clinched the final ACC Atlantic Division Championship for Clemson and guaranteed them a spot in the ACC Championship Game in Charlotte on December 3rd (the ACC will stop using the divisional format in 2023).

Last week, my family decided to go ahead and buy tickets for the championship game. We celebrated when we heard the Tigers clinched this weekend instead of the next, which was our expectation. That joy was short-lived, but today we wake up and that achievement hasn’t changed: Clemson will be playing for a conference championship in 2022.

Friedlander: First impressions of every ACC game in Week 11 - Saturday Road (; Friedlander)

The home stretch of the 2022 season finally has arrived. Most of the suspense, however, already has come and gone.

With 3 games remaining, the only thing left to decide is a Coastal Division race that has been more of a coronation than a competition for the past 2 weeks. North Carolina can wrap up the title and a spot opposite Clemson in the ACC Championship Game with a win at Wake Forest or a loss by rival Duke to Virginia Tech.

While those 2 games are the main event of the league’s Week 11 schedule, there’s no shortage of storylines waiting to be played out on the undercard.

Here’s a look at what to expect:

Virginia Tech at Duke

When – Saturday, noon ET

TV – Regional sports networks

The Blue Devils (6-3, 3-2 ACC) return home for the 1st time in a month looking to add on to an already-magical season. While they’re riding high after having earned bowl eligibility last week at Boston College, their opponent is headed in the opposite direction.

Like Duke, Virginia Tech (2-7, 1-5) is led by a rookie head coach. But that’s the only similarities between the programs. The Hokies are in the midst of a 6-game losing streak, their longest since 1987 – a season in which they finished 2-9.

Much of Tech’s misfortune has been self-inflicted. Coach Brent Pry’s team is among the most penalized in the ACC and during Saturday’s loss to Georgia Tech, it committed 3 of its 4 turnovers during the 4th quarter. It was the second straight game in which it squandered a late double-digit lead.

The Blue Devils, by contrast, have been an opportunistic bunch who rank among the best in the nation with 20 takeaways and among the top 3 in the ACC in scoring, rushing and red-zone offense.

Pittsburgh at Virginia

When – Saturday, noon ET

TV – ACC Network

It has been an awful year for ACC football in The Commonwealth. Between them, Virginia and Virginia Tech have only 5 wins and are a combined 2-10 in the conference. Coach Tony Elliott’s Cavaliers (3-6, 1-5) have been even more self-destructive than the neighboring Hokies. Their 20 lost turnovers (10 lost fumbles, 10 interceptions) are tied for the 3rd-most in the nation.

UVA, however, is coming off its highest-scoring effort since a season-opening win against Richmond. And it did so without its top 3 receivers, all of whom are sidelined by injury. While that might be a sign of progress, the Cavaliers’ 28-point output was more likely the product of UNC’s ACC-worst defense. They’ll have a tougher assignment this week against a Pitt defense that finally is beginning to live up to its preseason hype.

The Panthers (5-4, 2-3) recorded 6 sacks and held Syracuse without a touchdown while limiting star Sean Tucker to 19 rushing yards on 10 carries in a 19-9 win Saturday. Even though their offense still is trying to find a rhythm in the passing game, a stable of talented running backs – led by the ACC’s leading rusher Israel Abanikanda and Rodney Hammond Jr., has helped get them to within a win of bowl eligibility.

Throwing 90% of your passes less than 5 yards downfield (with half of them behind the LOS!) simply won't threaten the defense. It won't make them rethink their blitzes, and it won't force them to back anyone out of the box against the run.
True, the Tigers attempted a few deep sideline throws, but weren't able to complete any of them. Also notice the lack of passes over the middle (i.e. linebacker and safety responsibility).
An effective offense needs to ATTACK! The Tigers did much better in the second half - already down 28-0, however:

Passes between 5 and 10 yards - MUCH better.



This rendering shows local business owner Mike Flynn's plan to convert the former Pope's Grove Golf Course into a beer, food and entertainment destination.

New owner plans to turn closed CNY golf course into a beer and food 'destination' (PS; Cazentre)

With its 50 acres of “lush green landscape,” local business owner Mike Flynn is hoping to turn a suburban property he just bought into a “destination” for beer, food and entertainment.

His dream is to turn the former Pope’s Grove Golf Course off State Fair Boulevard in Lakeland into a restaurant with an attached brewery or, perhaps, a taphouse featuring a good selection of beers, highlighting local breweries.

Flynn closed on the $1 million purchase of Pope’s Grove last week. The nine-hole, par 3 course at 695 State Fair Blvd. opened in 1961 and was owned for decades by Frank and Harriet Pope. Frank Pope died in 2014 and Harriet Pope died earlier this year. The golf course did not open for the 2022 season.

Flynn does not plan to offer golf on the property, but expects to operate a place that will draw in people for a nice day out for food, drinks, live music and perhaps some other activities. He expects the renovations and build-out to take more than a year or maybe even two.
