@NewhouseSU September 24

My daily post theme for 2017 is on Colleges and Universities.

The plan for starting my blog back in 2014 was at the urging of fellow coaching colleagues to share posts on leadership and/or motivation. Somehow that idea got derailed and turned into daily posts on one theme for an entire year.

In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and for 2017 I will focus on “Colleges and Universities”.

I have been associated with colleges since I was 18 and I love them. I have coached/worked at four different universities and in my professional and personal travels visited 100’s more. Each college has something in its history that I want to share that to me make it unique or personal.

Name of University: Syracuse University

Location: Syracuse NY

In the late 1960’s as a teenager I would take a transistor radio to bed each night and listen to various sport broadcasts. Living in Northern NJ I got to listen to a lot of New York Stations including WHN 1050-AM on my transistor radio.



I lot of those events featured me listening to a graduate of Syracuse University named Marv Albert. Marv was the voice of the New York Knicks for 37 years from 1967 to 2004.

Marv Albert depicted below from the early days of his broadcast career.

Sports Broadcasting is a major at Syracuse and most lists I researched had Syracuse’s S. I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at the top.  Students apparently receive fabulous instruction, and get help from the SU alumni already in the field.

A list of some of the Syracuse Alumni doing sports broadcasting is found below and includes Mike Trico, Ian Eagle, Bob Costas, Beth Mowins, and Dick Stockton.


One other interesting fact about Syracuse University is related to the Carrier Dome (shown below). In the fall of 2016 the university introduced plans to renovate the facility including adding air conditioning to a facility named after a company that is synonymous with AC.
