Saturday night, we got our first huge surprise of the 2014 NCAA Tournament as the Dayton Flyers fought back in the second half to knock off the third-seeded Syracuse Orange and advance to the Sweet 16. It’s been a great first two games for the Flyers, who began this minor journey so far by upsetting Aaron Craft and the Ohio State Buckeyes on Thursday.

After the game, you had to imagine that the students on the Dayton campus were excited. And of course, they were as they took the celebration to the streets on campus in one of the wildest scenes you’ll ever see.

Just how wild was it? Well, let’s put it this way, the president of the university, Daniel Curran, was crowdsurfing.

Yes, he was crowdsurfing…look!


Alright, we officially have a front runner for the coolest university president on the planet for the year 2014. This is going to be tough to beat.
