The Butler frenzy is in full swing.
A noon pep rally at Indianapolis' Monument Circle drew more than 2,000 fans – and this was without the players present. (Some were back in class.) A championship rally would draw at least 10 times that amount, and not just because Butler canceled classes on Tuesday.
But my favorite aspect is that Butler fans are popping up all over the country.
The Butler alumni association has posted a list of sites in various cities where fans can cheer their Bulldogs Monday night. At this posting, there were 30 cities on the list. More will probably be added.
My guess? Non-Butler alumni also will be going to be popping up at those spots to root against Duke.
Mike Miller's also on Twitter, usually talkin' hoops. Click here for more.
