Welcome to National Button Day!

Although there are many kinds of buttons, by most accounts National Button Day celebrates buttons that are used on clothing, for ornamentation or as fasteners. The first buttons were used for ornamentation and seals, and have been found in the Indus River Valley (c. 2800-2600 BCE), China (c. 2000-1500 BCE), and ancient Rome. The oldest known button—dating to 5000 BCE—was made from a curved shell and found in the Indus River Valley. Buttons that function as fasteners, along with buttonholes, didn't come about until the 13th century, where they first appeared in Germany, and spread throughout Europe. They have been made from almost every material, their composition often reflecting the popular materials of the era in which they were made. Today they are most often constructed out of hard plastic, metals, seashells, or wood. They have been created by artisans, artists, and craftspeople, out of raw materials or found objects such as fossils, or from a combination of both. They have been made in small quantities, or in large scale quantities at factories.

SU News

Film Review: Syracuse's offense reaches new low in 4th straight loss (DO; Cirino)

Syracuse has now lost four straight games and gone eight quarters without a touchdown. Offensively, Florida State was all over the Orange, scoring all 38 of its points within the first three quarters on 420 yards of total offense. The Seminoles simultaneously allowed their fewest yards of the season, holding SU to just 160.

Syracuse had season lows in receiving and passing yards — 65 yards each — and rushed for fewer than 100 yards for the third consecutive game. It fell victim to consistent sacks, incompletions and lost yardage plays, pushing it to the brink of remaining over .500 with two road games remaining.

Here is how Syracuse’s offense fell apart against Florida State:

Back-to-back 3-and-outs on opening drives

Syracuse’s play-calling was almost too predictable on Saturday. Whenever Sean Tucker was on the field, the Orange were going to run the ball in some form.Whenever he wasn’t, Shrader opted to pass. Florida State knew SU would not pass the ball as it had more linemen than SU.

Syracuse picked up six yards on its opening drive and needed just a short gain to break closer to midfield. The play was designed for the Orange offense to allow themselves enough flexibility for a pass while still creating the option to run the ball.

When Shrader faked the handoff on this 3rd-and-4 play, Tucker shifted to the right while the offensive line created a gap for Shrader to run the ball up the middle. Instead, he remains in the pocket and immediately looks left for Oronde Gadsden II, who attempted to cut toward the middle of the field on a slant route but was tightly covered.

With Shrader taking his time, that open gap for him to run through was taken advantage of by Florida State middle linebacker Tatum Bethune, who quickly pressured Shrader. With Tucker outside the pocket and the Orange having no free offensive lineman, Bethune runs behind Shrader untouched.

Garrett Shrader told reporters Tuesday he’s the “best (he’s) been in the past couple weeks” in terms of health heading into Saturday’s road game at Wake Forest.

The Syracuse football quarterback made his first appearance on the field in SU’s loss to Florida State after six straight quarters one the sideline with an injury. The last full game he’d played prior to squaring off against the Seminoles was the loss at Clemson.

Shrader is believed to have had a lower leg injury, though that was never confirmed by him or the program.

He suffered the injury sometime before the Week 9 game against Notre Dame and was pulled at halftime of that contest by coach Dino Babers. Backup Carlos Del Rio-Wilson played the second half against the Irish, and the entirety of the Orange’s road game at Pittsburgh, which Shrader spent on the sideline in street clothes.

“I feel like I’ve made strides health-wise this past week exponentially from the past three weeks,” Shrader said. “I think we’ll be able to do a little bit more and do a little bit different stuff so we can really start stressing defenses again and actually making ‘em cover the whole field. Looking forward to it.”

Shrader attributed his increased health to the time he got to take off. He practiced only limitedly the past two weeks, he said, and commended assistant athletic trainer Brandon Hall for the work he and his staff have done helping with his recovery.

Wake Forest coach Dave Clawson pre-Syracuse press conference Q&A (; $; Johns)

Wake Forest Football coach Dave Clawson chatted with the local media Tuesday afternoon at the Deacs get set to host Syracuse Saturday night in the final home game of the 2022 season. Here's the bulk of what Clawson had to say in the press conference in Q&A format.

Opening statement
Clawson: “Before we get started on football, I just want to express my sincere condolences, thoughts and prayers to the University of Virginia, the football program, the university family, and especially the families of the victims. It’s just incredibly heartbreaking. We knew some of those young men. We recruited Lavel Davis. He’s friends with players on our team. I can’t imagine what they’re going through.

“I was the coach at Fordham when 9/11 hit. We lost a teammate and a close member of our Fordham community, many members of our community, but one in particular who we were really close with. That was really hard. I’ll remember where I was when I heard this news yesterday. It’s just absolutely heartbreaking and it seems like no matter what you say, it’s never enough. There’s just words. Sadly, this is a story that gets repeated too often in our country. Whether it’s kids getting shot in an elementary school in Connecticut, high school in Texas or Colorado. This is the second time in Virginia. I was at Richmond when it happened on the Virginia Tech campus. We had a player there who’s girlfriend went to Virginia Tech. It’s shopping malls, concerts, grocery stores. Other than for the people involved, it just seems it’s one of those stories that in two weeks people will forget about and it will just repeat somewhere else. It’s really sad and tragic. Unfortunately, it seems to be a regular occurrence in our country. That’s scary. We talked to our players about it today. Nobody is immune to this. This could be Wake Forest football players in a week. You just never know. It was a hard meeting, and there’s just no words. It’s just tragic and I can’t imagine what they’re going through there. We’re thinking of them and have heavy hearts for their suffering.”

Wake Forest’s offense has kept churning out touchdowns even in losing streak (Wake Forest scouting report) (PS; $; Leiker)

Like Syracuse football, Wake Forest is trying to snap a three game losing streak.

Unlike Syracuse, the Demon Deacons’ past two losses have been 30-point nail-biters that coach Dave Clawson’s team has just come out on the wrong side of.

Wake Forest will be attempting to right its own ship in its final home game of the season after losing 48-21 against Louisville, 30-21 against N.C. State and 36-34 against University of North Carolina.

Quarterback Sam Hartman and the rest of Wake Forest’s offense have proven they can keep their team in games even when trailing at halftime, as they were against both N.C. State and UNC. Though the Demon Deacons’ average point total has dropped during the slump, they’ve still yet to finish a single game this season with fewer than 21 points.

Wake Forest’s defense has necessitated its offense’s high scoring. The Demon Deacons have allowed opponents 30 or more points in five contests this season and 20 or more points in all but three games. Its scoring defense is No. 11 in the ACC and No. 83 in the country.

Here’s a few more things to know about Wake Forest (6-4, 2-4 ACC) before SU squares off against it in Winston-Salem this weekend.

Wake Forest Football: Syracuse Team Overview (SI; Rausch)

The Deacs suffered a heartbreaking 36-34 home loss to the Tar Heels on Saturday. Looking to bounce back, Wake faces Syracuse this weekend in their final home game of the season. With both teams currently holding 6-4 records, this game is critical for both bowl placement and ACC seeding.

Let’s take a look at Wake Forest’s opponent.

Matchup History:

Having faced off only 11 times in their series history, Syracuse currently holds a 6-5 advantage over Wake Forest.

The Deacs have won their last two battles with the Orange. Last year, Wake Forest came away with a 40-37 victory in an overtime thriller.

Syracuse in 2022:

After opening the season 6-0, Syracuse has dropped their last four games. Suffering losses to Clemson, Notre Dame, Pitt and Florida State, the Orange will look to right the ship against the Deacs.

Syracuse X-Factor: RB Sean Tucker

Over Syracuse’s last four games, Sean Tucker is averaging just 46.3 rushing yards per game. Compared to his rushing average over the Orange’s first six games — where Tucker averaged 107.3 yards per game — his offensive impact has drastically declined.

The correlation between the usage of Tucker in Syracuse’s wins vs losses is evident and may be more than just a coincidence. Syracuse is averaging a measly 14.3 points per game over their last four contests, a dramatic decrease from their 36.0 average during the undefeated start.

Syracuse rounds out regular season at Boston College with third consecutive night game (PS; Leiker)

Orange fans will want to make sure they pack their winter coats, hats and gloves for what’s sure to be a chilly regular-season finale two weekends from now.

Syracuse football will face Boston College on the road at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 26, the ACC announced Tuesday. The game will be televised locally on YES Network.

It’s the fifth total and third-consecutive night game SU will play this season. Saturday’s game against Wake Forest kicks off at 8 p.m. and will air on the ACC Network.

The Orange hasn’t played in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, since 2018. SU beat BC 42-21 in that showing but has gone 1-2 against the Eagles since.

Boston College just beat No. 17 N.C. State 21-20, ending the Wolfpack’s home win streak of 16 games and giving the Eagles their second ACC win.

Quarterback Emmett Morehead connected with Joseph Griffin Jr. on a 2-yard scoring pass in the waning seconds. The Eagles held N.C. State out of the end zone for three quarters after initially letting it out to a 14-point lead.

Next up on Boston College’s slate is a road trip to No. 18 Notre Dame.

Here’s the rest of the ACC schedule for Week 13:

  • Friday, Nov. 25: N.C. State at University of North Carolina, 3:30 p.m. (ABC)
  • Friday, Nov. 25: Florida State vs. Florida, 7:30 p.m. (ABC)
  • Saturday, Nov. 26: Georgia Tech at Georgia, noon (ESPN)
  • Saturday, Nov. 26: South Carolina at Clemson, noon (ABC)
  • Saturday, Nov. 26: Louisville at Kentucky, 3 p.m. (SEC Network)
  • Saturday, Nov. 26: Wake Forest at Duke, 3:30 p.m. (TBD)
  • Saturday, Nov. 26: Pitt at Miami, 8 p.m. (ACCN)
The game time for the Virginia-Virginia Tech game is yet to be announced.

Syracuse football: Orange open as double digit underdogs to Wake Forest (TNIAAM; De Guzman)

The Syracuse Orange are finished with their home schedule and hit the road for the final two games of the regular season. The Orange are also on a four-game losing streak and it appears to be an uphill battle to prevent that from becoming five in Winston-Salem against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons.

Our friends at Draftkings don’t like Syracuse’s chances on the road as the Orange are 10-point underdogs against Wake Forest. To Syracuse’s advantage, the Demon Deacons are also coming into this weekend’s contest on a losing streak, dropping their last three games. So much like last week, the Orange face an opponent who somehow hold the same record at 6-4.

The similarities don’t end there as both teams are 6-4 against the spread. Both teams have also not been reliable at hitting the over, with Syracuse at 3-7 this season while Wake Forest is at 4-6. The O/U is currently set at 55.

The game between these two teams last year was smack in the middle of Syracuse’s “let’s lose to good teams by one score” stretch. The Orange pushed the Demon Deacons to overtime but Wake found the necessary touchdown in the first extra period. The Demon Deacons eventually went to play in the ACC Championship, losing to Pitt.

Syracuse football: first down offense vs Florida State (TNIAAM; Wall)

The Syracuse Orange offense continues to create new ways to help the defense.

Against Florida State the Orange found limited succes running the ball on first down plays but unlike last week the passing game was putrid. How bad? How about seven pass plays on first downs resulting in a total of three yards. Add in two penalties which wiped out first downs and you can see why the Orange failed to find the end zone for the second straight game.

(And Dino, Norvell ran a 4th down Philly Special up 28 points. Call your time outs and try and score in the final minute.)

So can Syracuse find a solution? Let’s discuss after we look at the numbers from Saturday

Early in the year Syracuse attacked opponents with throws over the middle. Teams have certainly seen that Shrader likes to target Oronde Gadsden and the Orange haven’t adjusted. Throws to the outside were ineffective and as the guys discussed on this week’s podcast, the offense has been too predictable.

SU changed its philosophy on using multiple running backs by committing to Tucker (PS; $; Leiker)

A multi-headed rushing attack has worn down Syracuse football’s defense in recent weeks.

And with SU’s offense struggling as much as it is, questions have arisen as to why the Orange hasn’t switched to a similar type of game plan having witnessed first-hand how successful it can be against opposing defenses.

Syracuse has played multiple running backs before, coach Dino Babers reminded reporters Monday.

After Sean Tucker’s historic 2021 season, though, the Orange decided to change its mindset for how it uses personnel at the position.

“When we (used multiple backs), we did not have thousand-yard rushers and we did not have guys doing the things that Sean Tucker’s been able to do,” Babers said. “You have to decide what your philosophy is.

“Our philosophy has moved back and forth. It all depends on when you’ve got somebody special. You’ve got somebody special, it’s hard to treat someone special like they’re average. That’s the biggest thing.”

Tucker’s taken 438 snaps from the backfield this season and 516 snaps total according to Pro Football Focus.

That number’s a bit higher than the other top running backs in the ACC. Pittsburgh’s Israel Abanikanda, the conference leader in rushing yards, has taken 424 total snaps this season, even while missing time with an injury. Clemson’s Will Shipley has played 440 snaps.

None of the backups for either of those teams come close to Abanikanda’s or Shipley’s number of snaps, but they have significantly more than Syracuse’s LeQuint Allen or Juwaun Price.

Eric Dungey Drafted by XFL’s DC Defenders (SI; McAllister)

Former Syracuse star quarterback Eric Dungey has been drafted into the XFL. The professional football league announced its teams drafted quarterbacks on Tuesday, and the DC Defenders picked Dungey. The XFL season is slated to begin in February 2023.

“We are very excited to add Eric as a true dual threat for the Defenders,” head coach Reggie Barlow said. “Eric has the ability to affect the game not just with his arm, but with his mobility and running ability, which gives us even more options on offense.”

Eric Dungey is Syracuse's all-time leader in career passing yards, second in completions and third in touchdown passes. He is one of the most productive quarterbacks in Orange history. Forced into action as a true freshman when veteran Terell Hunt got hurt, Dungey played with grit, toughness and determination.

He helped lead Syracuse to an upset over defending the defending national champion Clemson Tigers in the Dome in 2017. Dungey then led the Orange to a 10 win 2018 season capped by a Camping World Bowl win over West Virginia. Syracuse finished that season 10-3 and ranked 15th in the country in the final polls.

ACC News

Preview | ACC bowl game predictions - The Pitt News (; Sykes)

With two weeks remaining in the season, teams across the FBS are battling for bowl contention and position. The ACC already has seven teams clinched for bowl season and three other teams on the cusp.

These are my predictions for which bowl games eligible ACC teams will end up playing in.

Eliminated: Virginia Tech, Virginia and Boston College

There won’t be any bowling for at least three ACC teams in 2022. Virginia Tech started off 2-1 with a big win at home against Boston College. But after dropping seven games in a row, the Hokies sit at 2-8 with no chance at bowl contention.

Virginia also started 2-1, with two wins over out-of-conference opponents Richmond and Old Dominion. After dropping five of six games in ACC play, the Cavaliers sat at 3-6 going into last Saturday’s game against Pitt, needing to win their remaining three games in order to qualify for a bowl game.

Senior quarterback Brennon Armstrong threw two pick-sixes on the first two plays of their game against Pitt en route to a 37-7 loss. The loss officially eliminated the Cavaliers from bowl contention.

Unlike Virginia and Virginia Tech, Boston College started just 2-7. A huge road upset victory over North Carolina State gave the Eagles their third win of the year. Regardless, the Eagles are just playing for pride to end the year and are mathematically eliminated from bowl eligibility.

On the Cusp: Georgia Tech and Miami

Georgia Tech started its season 1-3. After firing their head coach, the Yellow Jackets turned their season around, splitting their last six games. Upsets over ranked opponent Pitt, along with a win against Duke, showed the country their heart despite trending downward the past few years.

The Yellow Jackets have an improbable route to bowl contention, though. Sitting at 4-6, they must win their remaining two games to clinch bowl contention. Those two games are on the road against ACC Coastal division winner No. 13 North Carolina and SEC East division winner No. 1 Georgia.

Miami has a more probable yet still difficult path to bowl contention. With a 5-5 record, the Hurricanes have to either go on the road and beat the ACC Atlantic division winner No. 9 Clemson or beat Pitt at home to finish the season.

Pinstripe Bowl: Pitt

Pitt didn’t repeat as ACC Coastal Champions in 2022, but they’re still bowling. It’s been an up-and-down year for the Panthers, but they won when it mattered most, clinching bowl contention with two ACC wins in a row.

With games against Duke and Miami remaining, I think the Panthers split these two games and head into the Pinstripe Bowl on Dec. 29 with a 7-5 record.

Wasabi Fenway Bowl: Wake Forest

Wake Forest is 6-4 and will not repeat as ACC Atlantic division champions. The Deacons started the season 6-1 and reached as high as No. 10 in the AP poll. Dropping three games in a row is an ugly finish, and I think this downward spiral will continue down the stretch. The Deacons will finish 6-6 and travel to Boston on Dec. 17 for the Fenway Bowl.

Military Bowl: Louisville

Louisville currently sits at 6-4, with games against NC State and Kentucky remaining. I think Louisville drops both contests, finishing at 6-6 and clinching the Dec. 28 Military Bowl with a chance to avenge their bowl game loss from last year.

Holiday Bowl: Duke

Duke has impressed this season and are currently 7-3 with games against Pitt and Wake Forest remaining. In their last few games, the Blue Devils will drop the road game versus Pitt but finish the season with a win against Wake Forest. An 8-4 record is more than good enough to get the Blue Devils a bid into the Holiday Bowl on Dec. 28.

Sun Bowl: Syracuse

Syracuse started the season an unprecedented 6-0, and were ranked as high as No. 14 in the nation. The Orange then went on to drop four games in a row after an injury to junior quarterback Garrett Shrader. Shrader’s return should help the Orange win their remaining two regular season games and walk into the Sun Bowl on Dec. 31 healthy and motivated.

Tar Heels Quietly Looking for the ACC Football Title | Lindy's Sports (; Cross)

With North Carolina’s 36-34 win over Wake Forest, the Tar Heels are one of the best-kept secrets in college football as they are still ranked No. 13 in this week’s Associated Press poll.

Carolina has already taken over as the ACC representative from the Coastal Division and will face Clemson in the ACC Championship game on Dec. 3.

This week’s “ACC Fab Five” takes a look at five games that were played over the weekend. The ACC teams do not have to win non-conference games but must have been competitive in the contest.

No. 15 North Carolina 36, @Wake Forest 34 –

North Carolina freshman quarterback Drake Maye should be front row and center in Heisman Trophy conversations. He lit up the Deacons’ secondary for 448 yards in completing 31 of 48 passes with three touchdown tosses.

It was a shootout between Maye and Wake Forest quarterback Sam Hartman, who completed 18 of 31 throws for 320 yards and four touchdowns.

North Carolina wide receiver Josh Downs caught touchdown passes of 12, 20 and seven yards in the first half as the Heels led 27-21 at halftime.

Hosts: Andrew Selover, Ian Nicholas, and Adam Cohen

This is the last episode of the No Pulp Podcast before perhaps the most anticipated college football regular season week: rivalry week. There are plenty of rivalry games to dissect, and our hosts do just that, while having a little playoff debate in the middle of it all.

https://floridastate./news/where-could-fsu-football-go-bowling-this-season- (; 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 seventh game in blowout fashion Saturday at Syracuse, continuing to raise their standing in the ACC's pecking order for bowl games.

While the talk has turned to where FSU could be headed this bowl season for a few weeks now, there's now more zeroing in as FSU establishes itself near the top of the conference.

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.

ACC FOOTBALL: Drake Maye Fore Heisman; FSU Turning the Corner; Clemson Tigers Still Look Vulnerable (; podcast; Locked on the ACC)

Nobody but Drake, Luke and his parents saw this big of a season for him. How has UNC's QB become arguably the best in the country? Florida State is getting back to form with another strong week of performances. Why does Clemson. still look vulnerable despite being the best record in the ACC?



Joan Farrenkopf restored the "Driscoll House" in the Hawley-Green neighborhood in Syracuse after it was ruined in a 1981 fire. She has managed it with "immense pride" as an apartment building for 40 years. Photos are courtesy of

House of the Week: ‘Chutzpah’ was needed to restore Syracuse’s ‘Driscoll House’ after 1981 fire (PS; $; Croyle)

When fire tore through the three-story house at 218 Green Street in the Hawley-Green section of Syracuse on June 5, 1981, it was just the latest suspicious blaze to ravage the neighborhood over the previous decade.

Left in ruins, it was just another of the close to 600 vacant or run-down houses in the city at the time.

The house, with a conical tower familiar with its Queen Anne architecture style, had been home to Michael Driscoll, who served seven terms in Congress from 1899 to 1913.

He had built the house there in 1890 just a “few steps” from the home he was born in on Burnet Avenue in 1851 to his Irish immigrant parents. He lived there for 40 years until his death in 1929.

At some point, the house, known as “The Driscoll House,” was joined with the home next door, 216 Green, creating a multi-family property with almost 8,000 square feet of space.

But after the fire in 1981, the home seemed destined for demolition.

Joan Farrenkopf would not let that happen.
