Syracuse Ballers To Rock New Air Jordan Melos

jordan-melo-future-sole-m7-syracuse-01

The Jordan Melo Future Sole M7 is the newest player exclusive model of basketball sneaker from Air Jordan. These sweet kicks, priced at $220, sport the signature Syracuse orange and Melo’s name etched in on the back. It seems like only yesterday that Carmelo and the Orange conquered the NCAA championship, and the rest is history.

That was all the way back in 2003, when Melo was a freshman. Soon after he entered the NBA draft, and became an icon on campus. In 2009 Syracuse University opened the Carmelo K. Anthony Basketball Center, and this year the whole team will be rocking these sneakers. ‘Cuse students: if you can shell out the cash, then you should definitely grab yourself a pair. Maybe sell all those textbooks you just bought – they’ll give you a full refund for the first few weeks of class.

FourSquare Founder Dennis Crowley Gives Graduation Speech to ‘Cuse

I was checking out my Twitter feed this weekend, and noticed a whole lot of chatter about college parties and graduations.  Being that our site is called The Campus Socialite, I tend to follow a lot of people in the college world.  I also follow Dennis Crowley (@DENS), founder of FourSquare, an application that I have become a huge fan of over the past two years, and not to mention the dude is a ‘CUSE alum like myself. For those that are not familiar with Foursquare, it is the application that you have probably noticed on your Facebook or Twitter feed that fills you in on the location of your friends. In any case, I had serious nostalgia this weekend watching Dennis Crowley check in and tweet from all my favorite spots in the Cuse. I tweeted at him not sure as why he was back partying at Chucks and Lucy’s. He filled me in that he was speaking at Syracuse University iSchool graduation. I also had to find out why he wasn’t at my former stomping grounds Harry’s. The video from his awesome graduation speech and some of his tweets from the weekend after the jump.

Point Shaving at Syracuse? BULLSHIT

no thumb

Who needs to shave points when you have this waiting in your dorm room every night?

Syracuse Girl BBALL Uniform

Rumors have been circulating the internet regarding potential point shaving by the Syracuse University Men’s Basketball team. The story was originally posted on the poker website, POCKETFIVES.com. WYNN’s Andy Adamson reported that Syracuse basketball players Scoop Jardine, Dion Waiters and James Southerland are involved in a point shaving scandal at Cuse.  He then proceeded to post the rumors on his twitter and facebook accounts. The team won their first 18 games this season and have since dropped four straight, two to unranked opponents. Despite the overall strong start, the Orange are a dismal 7-13 against the point spread.

Throwback to the Future

no thumb

By: Andrew Bank (Syracuse University)

Remember when it was cool to be retro? I sure do. Growing up on the Beatles, Converse, Nick at Nite, and Larry Bird highlight tapes made me feel generations ahead of my time. As a kid, I used to love chatting with my friends’ parents (perhaps even more than with my friends themselves) because it was exciting to bridge our age gaps through nostalgic dialogue. Referencing Lennon-McCartney and Lenny-Squiggy set me apart from others my age who were more familiar with Evan & Jaron and Keenan & Kel. Sporting “Dr. J’s” and a #33 Celtics jersey gave me character, and made me feel like a man among boys wearing Sambas and the Bulls # 23.

F is for Failure, Literally

By: Erica Murphy (Syracuse University)

Most normal people begin their college experience with a crazy drunken adventure, or a floor-wide game of catch phrase. That one event rekindles every year, making it almost like a tradition. People who met in freshman year make it a habit to reunite for another rousing game. Or someone might spot their first hook-up and somehow make the sparks fly again. I don’t know what makes these experiences resurface every year, but everyone knows that they do.

“I don’t know what you are but I’m going to fuckin’ eat you too!”

– Alex, Grandma’s Boy

I have no idea if food enthusiast and host of Travel Channel’s Man vs. Food, Adam Richman, has seen Grandma’s Boy but he certainly shares the same attitude as Alex when it comes to eating.  Richman recently visited my alma mater, Syracuse University, and took on the local foods at the city’s most famous establishments: Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, Heid’s of Liverpool,  and Mother’s Cupboard.  Although I explored the menu and enjoyed a meal at all three restaurants during my four years at the ‘Cuse, I never experienced anything like Richman did when he went to war with a six pound Mother’s Cupboard frittata loaded with pepperoni, peppers, broccoli, and diced potatoes.  Take a look at the footage from this epic installment of Man vs. Food from the best college in the Big East – Syracuse University.

Who Needs a Man When You Got a Chick Flick?

By: Erica Murphy (Syracuse University)

We may only be a week or so into fall semester, but girls are already having boy troubles. Whether you met a total dish in astronomy and he just isn’t into you, or there is a complete creeper who won’t leave you alone, both scenarios cause big problems. It is time for you and your girlfriends to lie down on that stained dorm floor and talk it out. It is time for a girls’ night. Head to the store and grab a can of icing with Nilla wafers, something deliciously salty, and tell “your source” to pick you up a bottle of champagne. The only other items needed to perfect this evening of glittery toes and juicy gossip are the traditional and sappy chick-flicks. Here are a couple choices for that much needed girls’ night.

You Know You’re a Freshman When…

By: Erica Murphy (Syracuse University)

It doesn’t matter if you are a freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior; do not walk in packs of more than three. Frat boys will moo at you like a herd of cows and girls will shriek freshman out their window while driving by. Other tips include don’t wear a lanyard around your neck, or proudly display your 2014 class year. These are things that you simply just don’t do at college. By all means, graffiti 2014 all over your dorm room walls! Heck you can even paint a lovely picture of a wide-grinned person with a large (insert college here) lanyard. Just don’t do it in public. But there are other less obvious things that scream freshman. Things that are almost like a right of passage into college. You must make that silly little mistake first before you can truly become a part of that college. If you are one of those lucky ones who previously learned the tricks of the trade, than God bless you. But for those of you who let a little freshman signal slip, you are not alone.
