  1. Vox!! Find this guy and give him a goddamn Sully Sullenberger hero of the year award. Or at least front row tix to the Hoyas this season.

  2. I’d be more than satisfied with Saferides’ departure if we can continue to rely on Batman’s defense.

  3. They should the hero to release their name. Congratulations are necessary
