Welcome to National Maritime Day!

The United States has always been and will always be a great maritime nation. From our origins as 13 British colonies, through every period of peace and conflict since, the Merchant Marine has been a pillar in this country’s foundation of prosperity and security. They power the world’s largest economy and strengthen our ties with trading partners around the world, all while supporting our military forces by shipping troops and supplies wherever they need to go.

Ninety years ago, Congress declared National Maritime Day to commemorate the American steamship Savannah’s voyage from the United States to England, marking the first successful crossing of the Atlantic Ocean with steam propulsion. During World War II more than 250,000 members of the American Merchant Marine served their country, with more than 6,700 giving their lives, hundreds being detained as prisoners of war and more than 800 U.S. merchant ships being sunk or damaged.

SU football’s twin recruits find confidence through late mother (PS; $; Leiker)

Travon Dye can still remember what he felt like before his first football game.

“I could not feel my stomach,” Travon said. “I was so nervous. I felt like I was about to crap myself.”

He and his twin brother, Trashon, had to fight their single mother, Taliah Dye, for several years to play more than flag football.

By the time they were 10, the pair had finally annoyed their mom enough that she allowed them to play tackle football.

The excitement of doing so, though, clearly didn’t outweigh the nerves of the moment.

Taliah died Nov. 24, 2020, during Travon’s and Trashon’s freshman year at Passaic County Technical Institute, due to complications from Covid. She was 42, and the twins were just 15.

It changed the way they approach football and has given them something to play for as they enter their senior year as part of Syracuse football’s Class of 2024.

“That was a turning point not only in our game, but also in our mindsets,” Trashon said. “’Cause our mom passed away. What worse can happen? So when we step on that field, it’s go time. It’s do or die.

The weekend of June 9th is set to be a busy one for Syracuse football. The Orange will host running back commit Trashon Dye, linebacker commit Travon Dye, wide receiver Jason Robinson and linebacker Zekai Wimberly for official visits, they announced on social media.

Trashon Dye committed to Syracuse in March along with his brother. He stars for Passaic County Tech in New Jersey and is rated a three star prospect each of the recruiting services.

Former Syracuse legend Jim Brown dies at 87 (DO; Alandt)

Former Syracuse running back Jim Brown died Thursday. He was 87.

Brown helped usher in the legendary No. 44 along with Floyd Little and Ernie Davis at Syracuse when he played from 1954-56 with the Orange. Dubbed as “The Greatest of All Time,” he finished his three years with the Orange totaling 2,091 yards and 24 touchdowns, earning the first unanimous All-American in SU team history as a senior. His 123.3 rushing yards per game and 13 touchdowns in 1956 helped him finish fifth in the Heisman Trophy voting and lifted Syracuse to the Cotton Bowl.

His wife, Monique, said on Instagram that he died at their home in Los Angeles.

After he graduated from SU, he was drafted No. 6 overall in the 1957 NFL Draft to the Cleveland Browns, where he went on to have a Hall of Fame career in nine seasons with Cleveland. Both Brown’s No. 44 with Syracuse and No. 32 with the Browns were retired from the respective organizations. In 2015, Syracuse unveiled a statue of Brown along with Little and Davis next to the Ensley Athletic Center.

Following his career at Syracuse, Brown was accused of assault, all of which were against women, on multiple occasions. The three charges between the 60s and 80s were all eventually dropped.

Jim Brown, Syracuse football and lacrosse star turned NFL legend, passes away (

Syracuse University and National Football League legend Jim Brown '56 passed away today. Brown is the only man enshrined in the College Football Hall of Fame (1995), National Lacrosse Hall of Fame (1984) and the Professional Football Hall of Fame (1971), where he was inducted in his first year of eligibility. The 87-year-old is survived by his wife, Monique, their children, Aris and Morgan, and his daughter, Kim, and his sons, Kevin and James Jr.

"Jim Brown is widely regarded as one of the greatest athletes to ever wear Orange," said Syracuse University Chancellor Kent Syverud. "Jim was a four-sport athlete at Syracuse who was an All-American in both football and lacrosse. An NFL legend, he set numerous records, won countless awards and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, among others. He epitomized Syracuse University's deep commitment to military service having been commissioned as a second lieutenant through Army ROTC and continuing his military service in the Army Reserves while playing in the NFL. He went on to be a successful actor, tireless advocate for social justice and one of Syracuse's proudest ambassadors. I extend my deepest condolences to Monique, his family and all who knew, loved and admired him."

Brown's career at Syracuse started the legacy of the number 44. As a senior in 1956, he was a unanimous All-American and finished fifth in Heisman Trophy voting. That season he set the SU record for highest rush average in a season (6.2), most rushing touchdowns in a game (6) and most points scored in a game (43). He ran for 986 yards — third-most in the country despite Syracuse playing only eight games — and scored 14 touchdowns. In the Cotton Bowl, he rushed for 132 yards, scored three touchdowns and kicked three extra points. Syracuse University retired the #44 in 2005 — recognizing Brown, Ernie Davis and Floyd Little, and all those who wore the number.

"Jim Brown is one of the greatest all around athletes of all time," said Syracuse Director of Athletics John Wildhack. "At Syracuse he was the first of the famed 44s and excelled at lacrosse, basketball and track & field. In addition to his athletic accomplishments, he was a civil rights pioneer and created the Amer-I-Can Foundation for Social Change, which is designed to empower individuals to take charge of their lives and achieve their full potential.

Jim Brown by the numbers: Where Syracuse legend stands in program record book (; Leiker)

Jim Brown set an NCAA record in Syracuse football’s 61-7 thumping of Colgate on November 17, 1956.

It was the final home game Brown would play for the Orange at Archbold Stadium.

He set a single-game record scoring 43 points off six touchdowns and seven cleared extra points — yes, Brown kicked for Syracuse, too.

While the NCAA record was broken in 1990, it still stands at Syracuse 66 seasons later: Brown is both the program’s record-holder for most points in a single game and most rushing touchdowns.

Though Brown’s hold on the Orange record book has eroded over time, evidence of his collegiate prowess and stature as a Syracuse great still remain. He died Thursday at the age of 87.

Brown rushed for 197 yards on 22 carries that game in front of New York governor William Averell Harriman. It helped him establish what was at the time SU’s single-season rushing record of 986 yards.

Brown also still holds the No. 1 spot for highest average yards per kickoff return over a career with an average 29.1.

Here’s a look at the 23 times Brown still features in Syracuse’s program Top 10 lists:


No. 2, 123.3 yards (1956)


No. 5, 87.1 yards (1954-56)


No. 8, 12.9 yards vs. Boston University on October 8, 1955

JU lacrosse coach John Galloway has fond memories of meeting fellow Syracuse alum Jim Brown (; Smits)

Jacksonville University lacrosse coach John Galloway said it was a sad day for fans of two sports with the news of Pro Football Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown's passing late Thursday in Los Angeles at the age of 87.

“He was a great supporter of lacrosse his entire life,” said Galloway on Friday, who shared an important distinction with Brown — both were lacrosse All-Americans at Syracuse. “He’s said and written many times that lacrosse was actually his favorite sport. His son [Aris] played lacrosse at Hampton University. He is as much a legend in the lacrosse community, especially in the Northeast, as he is in football.”

Galloway met Brown once, in 2011 during a lacrosse banquet function at Syracuse.

“Very soft-spoken guy but very passionate about talking lacrosse,” Galloway said.

Brown played four sports at Syracuse and made his greatest accomplishments in football, where he is in the pro and college football halls of fame. He gained 2,091 yards and scored 19 touchdowns in three seasons at Syracuse, then was a Pro Bowl player in each of the nine years he played in the NFL, breaking every important rushing record at the time and finishing with 12,312 yards and 106 touchdowns.

Brown, a flawed hero, made his case as the greatest athlete who ever lived while at SU (PS; Carlson)

Jim Brown made his claim as the best football player in the world in Cleveland.

His argument for being the best athlete who has ever lived and his legacy of social activism, are rooted heavily in the four years he spent in Central New York.

Brown died Thursday at his home in Los Angeles at 87 years old. His life was studded with greatness and marked by flaws that have grown more glaring over time, as society reckons with domestic violence.

Brown was a four-sport star during his time at Syracuse competing in football, men’s basketball, lacrosse and, when called upon, track and field. Here, he delivered an athletic career so comprehensive that he is one of a handful of people who could credibly claim to be the greatest athlete who ever lived.

He was the first of Syracuse’s holy trinity of running backs, along with Ernie Davis and Floyd Little, that are responsible for the number “44″ being retired at the school and included in the school’s phone numbers and zip code.

Brown died 60 years to the day after Davis: ‘Unreal’ says the man who blocked for both (PS; $; Axe)

Syracuse football legends Ernie Davis and Jim Brown, the originators of the legend of No. 44 at Syracuse University, died on the same date 60 years apart.

Davis died on May 18, 1963 after a fight with leukemia, two years after becoming the first Black football player to win the Heisman Trophy.

Brown died Thursday after carving out one of the great athletic resumes of the 20th century and a life spent as a civil rights activist.

No one may appreciate that serendipitous connection more than John Brown.

Brown (no relation to Jim), a former roommate of Davis at Syracuse University and teammate of Jim Brown in the NFL with Cleveland, struggled to find the words through tears on Friday to describe what he was feeling with both of his friends passing on.

“It’s like karma,” Brown said. “It’s like destiny. I don’t want to get pollyannaish, but this is unreal.”

When John Brown first visited Syracuse, it was Jim Brown who showed him around campus.

“Everybody knew him,” John Brown said. “I’m walking around with a legend at Syracuse.”

Syracuse Football: 4-star wide receiver to officially visit Orange next month (itlh; Adler)

Jason Robinson from California, a four-star wide receiver and a top-450 national prospect in the 2024 recruiting cycle who recently put Syracuse football in his top 10, will take an official visit to the Hill next month.

This is highly encouraging news for the Orange’s chances to prevail for the 5-foot-11, 160-pound Robinson, who took an unofficial visit to the ‘Cuse in mid-April.

Robinson’s top 10, by the way, consists of Syracuse football, Utah, Notre Dame, Colorado, Florida State, Pittsburgh, California, Penn State, Washington and Southern California.

Syracuse Football: Latest ESPN power ranking projections for the Orange (itlh; Fiello)

Recently on Twitter, the ACC Network tweeted out the top 5 teams with projected win totals in 2023 within the Atlantic Coast Conference, and Syracuse football was included.

And needless to say, Syracuse football defensive lineman Caleb Okechukwu and I agree.

Love the doubt
— Caleb Okechukwu (@IamCaleb_18) May 18, 2023

Now I know that for some fans, 7.5 wins isn’t a slight and they’d probably take that and run. For me though, I see a lot of promise and depth going into the season so I’ll take the over. The four teams ahead of Syracuse football are Clemson, Florida State, North Carolina and Miami.

ESPN power ranking projections for Syracuse football.

And while that’s not terrible news even though I think Syracuse football can do better, I decided to look a bit further into the ESPN FPI (Football Power Index) than just the ACC Network tweet and found more reasons for an optimistic fan like me to doubt it even more.

You can see the data for yourself here, but I wanted to share a few things I noticed.

For instance, on the positive side, their analytics show there’s a 92.1% chance Syracuse football gets at least 6 wins (which means another bowl season). But after that, the doubt gets heavy.

ACC News (SI; Caudell)

There has been plenty of discussions this week in the ACC about figuring out ways to close the gap with the Big Ten and SEC in terms of revenue and all of that has come amidst rumors of ACC schools looking to find a way out:

One of the reasons for the schools wanting to leave is the sizeable gap in revenue when comparing the ACC to the Big Ten and SEC. The revenue for the 2022 fiscal year is out for the ACC and while they saw an increase in total revenue, it still trails the other two conferences.

According to a report from USA Today's Steve Berkowitz, the ACC reported revenue of $617 Million, which is third among the power five conferences.

ACC realignment: League considered at least four schools in expansion talks, per report (; Bahns)

The latest round of major college football conference realignment continues to stir up uncertainty within multiple Power Five conferences, and the ACC is the most recent league to jump to the forefront in that regard. With seven of the ACC’s most prominent programs – Clemson, Florida State, Miami, North Carolina, NC State, Virginia and Virginia Tech – reportedly weighing their options, questions about the league’s future are aplenty.

In an effort to stabilize the conference and keep pace with the SEC and Big Ten, which continue to grow both in membership and financial prosperity, the ACC explored options for expansion, ESPN’s David Hale reported.

“ACC has looked at a few (expansion options),” Hale wrote on Twitter, “including Oregon, Washington, SMU and West Virginia. From what I've been told, the $$ just aren't there.”

The key in adding universities to any conference is ensuring the revenue generated from those newcomers is great enough to raise the league’s annual payments to each member institution. The ACC is expected to announce 2021-22 distributions of $43 million per school, which falls $30-40 million short of the payments the SEC and Big Ten are likely to dish out when their new television contracts take effect.

“There are some admins who are frustrated the ACC isn't considering some more aggressive expansion tactics to at least do *something*,” Hale added. “I've heard some very outside the box ideas that are at least intriguing. But bigger issue is this should've happened years ago.”

One possible solution to the ACC’s uncertainty is the addition of Notre Dame to the conference. The Fighting Irish’s football program remains independent but joined the ACC for one season during the COVID-19 pandemic and has a scheduling agreement with the league to play multiple ACC programs every year.

Full membership, however, does not appear to be on the table after Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick was absent from the ACC’s spring meetings.

Tramel's ScissorTales: ACC's demise seems assured, even if it's 2036 (oklahoman; Tramel)

Some conference realignment comes out of the blue. OU and Texas to the Southeastern Conference; Southern Cal and UCLA to the Big Ten.

Some conference realignment plays out over months, with rampant speculation. The Big 12 departures of Missouri, Nebraska, Texas A&M and Colorado; the much-debated current fate of the Pac-12.

But here’s a realignment prediction that is far away and on solid ground. The breakup of the Atlantic Coast Conference in 2036.
The ACC is in turmoil as seven schools have aligned to bully the remaining seven into financial concessions.

Clemson and Florida State long have worried that the ACC payouts no longer are keeping up with the SEC (and Big Ten). Now they’ve been joined by North Carolina, Virginia Tech, Miami, North Carolina State and Virginia.

4 ACC schools that can become Auburn rivals in the SEC (; Hughes)

Auburn football and the rest of the SEC could see four exciting additions in the future in the form of Florida State, Clemson, Miami, and North Carolina should the ACC’s “Magnificent 7” figure out a way to disband the Atlantic Coast Conference for good.

Clemson, FSU, Miami, UNC, NC State, Virginia & Virginia Tech are “The Magnificent 7” ACC schools, sources told @ActionNetworkHQ. These schools, @RossDellenger reported, have met in past several months, w/lawyers examining grant-of-rights to determine just how unbreakable it is.…
— Brett McMurphy (@Brett_McMurphy) May 15, 2023

Mike Farrell Sports’ Luke Brumm relayed that the three historical football powers and UNC, one of college hoops’ most storied programs, would have a mutual interest with the Southeastern Conference should more conference realignment come in the wake of the ACC’s demise.

“There would likely be mutual interests between these schools and the conference,” Brumm prefaced before saying, “The SEC makes the most sense here and would be the premier conference if they joined.”

Auburn football would benefit from potential SEC additions

Already with Texas and Oklahoma set to join the conference in 2024, Auburn football will be benefitting from the changes that SEC realignment is set to bring. Both the Longhorns and Sooners have fanbases willing to travel, boosting the local economy on gameday, and the additions of UNC, Miami, Florida State, and Clemson would do the same in future Saturdays.

Big Ten leads Power Five conferences with $845.6 million in revenue in 2022 fiscal year, per report (; Straka)

Power Five conferences combined for more than $3.3 billion in total revenue during the 2022 fiscal year, according to USA Today. The Big Ten led the pack at $845.6 million. The Big Ten's reported revenue eclipsed the SEC by more than $40 million, the latter reporting in February that it generated $802 million in revenue for 2022.

The Big Ten distributed approximately $58.8 million to 11 of its 14 member institutions. Nebraska, Maryland and Rutgers all received millions less as it came from Big Ten Network earnings that predated the schools' entrance to the league.

The SEC distributed approximately $49.9 million in revenue per member institution.

The ACC was third at $617 million in total revenue, followed by the Pac-12 at $580.9 million and then the Big 12 at $480.6 million. The Big 12, however, was third in revenue distributed per member institution at an estimated $42-49.9 million, followed by the ACC at $37.9-41.3 million. Notre Dame, a football independent, reported $17.4 million in revenue from the ACC.

ESPN going direct to consumers?

This little nugget quietly leaked...

Broad implications for the media and sports industries here. The question has long about when (not if) ESPN would offer its main channel on streaming and it looks like it’s coming sooner rather than later.
— Frank the Tank (@frankthetank111) May 18, 2023
What would this likely mean for the ACC? Here are a few predictable side effects:
1. As more subscribers drop cable, and/or cable providers drop ESPN, it will erode the viewership of ACC sports on the four-letter network. That means less exposure for those events.
2. Games on ABC, the over-the-air network of the Disney family, will be a premium.
3. If we assume the ACC was smart enough not to pre-sell streaming rights for the ACC Network, there might be something significant to sell at the next "look-in".

From "NCAA's Power Five conferences are cash cows. Here's how much schools made in fiscal 2022" by Steve Berkowitz, USA TODAY

The conferences other than the SEC provided their new returns this week in response to requests from USA TODAY Sports. The SEC made its return public in February. Overall, among the Power Five:

1. Big Ten

revenue total at $845.6 million
...per-school distribution at about $58.8 million for each school other than Nebraska, Maryland and Rutgers. Those schools each received several million less, the conference said, because of distribution of revenue from the Big Ten Network that was earned before they became entitled to full shares.

2. SEC

total revenue $802 million
about $49.9 million per school.

3. Big 12

Revenue: $480.6 million, fifth among Power Five.
Per-school payouts: $42 million to $44.9 million, third among Power Five.
It is possible the payouts, at least for the 2023 fiscal year, will be greater than those for 2022. Oklahoma and Texas have agreed to forgo a combined total of $100 million... at least some of that amount will have to occur in 2023.

4. ACC

Revenue: $617 million, third among Power Five.
The increase in fiscal 2022 was driven by the ACC Network reaching full distribution in December 2021

Everybody else is quoting this twitter thread by David Hale, so why not?


The past week has been filled with a lot of speculation on the future of the ACC, so I figured I'd put together a little thread to clarify some of the issues and options the league has.
This may be long but the TL;DR is this: THERE IS NO EASY ANSWER. (1/)

First, credit where credit is due:

Start with this: In the past 12 months, Jim Phillips & ACC leadership have gotten rid of divisions & built the framework for a success-based revenue sharing model. Those were non-starter talks for a decade. It may ultimately be band-aids on bullet wounds, but it's commendable. 2/

The purple house at 1718 James St. is one of the most "seen" houses in SyracuseDavid Haas

Inside the purple (or is it gray?) mansion that’s the most ‘seen’ house in Syracuse (PS; $; Haas)

1718 James Street might be one of the most “seen” houses in all of Syracuse.

The house sits on a busy intersection at the corner of James Street and Teall Avenue. The owners are no strangers to seeing interested passersby taking photos while stopping to take a closer look at the home.

The house is often incorrectly noted as the purple house (owner Kevin Hoey would tell you the house is gray, with hints of purple). And it’s full of “wild architecture.”

The beautifully maintained house is home to Kevin and his wife, Jennifer LaGoy.

The couple married in 2000 after meeting in 1999 at a bar in the Adirondacks. Kevin was born in Syracuse and lived kitty corner from 1718 James Street when he first met Jennifer. Jennifer, raised in Jay, N.Y., spent much of her childhood at her grandmother’s old Victorian home on College Street and dreamed of one day owning her own old house.

After they married, the couple began looking for homes with the agreement that they “wouldn’t look at any house built after 1930.”

Kevin said he didn’t notice the potential of the home at 1718 James St. until he saw Jennifer staring out his window dreaming of what could be. At that time, the house was painted pink and green and was poorly maintained. There were often ladders leaning on the property signaling the beginning of restoration projects that were never completed.

The house went up for sale in 2000 while Jennifer and Kevin were house hunting. Inside, they found a house in need of salvation. The roof was leaking, wind blew through the dining room, critters had made their way inside and it was, as they said, “disgusting.”

The couple saw the potential beyond the mess and became enamored with the house.

“We sensed the history and smelled the wood – it felt like home” Jennifer said. “We figured if we didn’t get this house, it would be bought and chopped up into apartments.”

Kevin calls the 3,500 sq. ft. house an overwhelming and never-ending project. He’s a contractor and has completed the restoration work himself and with a small team of associates in the field – often bartering for work. The painstaking hours he has spent working on the house are incalculable, he said. The projects continue nearly 25 years later, but his work shines throughout the entire home.

NYC to send first bus of migrants to Onondaga County, town official says (PS; Weiner)

New York City plans to transport migrants who need temporary shelter to Onondaga County next week, despite the county’s emergency order that attempts to ban such transfers, according to a town official.

The bus is expected to arrive in the next few days at the Candlewood Suites Syracuse Airport Hotel on South Bay Road in Salina, said Nick Paro, the Salina town supervisor.

Paro said he was informed of the pending transfer in a phone call Saturday from Chris Ellis, New York City’s director of state legislative affairs.

Paro said that Ellis didn’t seem to care about the emergency order issued Thursday that tries to ban migrant transfers to Onondaga County and threatens to fine local hotels or motels that temporarily house them.

“It really is a slap in the face when you issue an emergency order and they completely ignore it,” Paro told | The Post-Standard.

Ellis did not say how many asylum-seekers would be sent to the hotel or how long they would stay in the Syracuse area, Paro said.

“It was pretty much a courtesy call to let me know they are sending migrants to our town,” Paro said. “We’re expecting them early next week.”

Paro said he will try to stop the transfer by working with County Executive Ryan McMahon to seek a restraining order against New York City. He said the town will likely go to court Monday morning.

Two other New York counties, Rockland and Orange counties, succeeded in obtaining temporary restraining orders from a judge last week, blocking the migrant transfers.

A spokesman for New York City Mayor Eric Adams did not respond Sunday when asked if he could confirm Paro’s information. The manager of the Candlewood Suites on South Bay Road did not return a phone message.
