Final Four fever: Butler, UConn fans step up!


After the VCU Rams’ comeback-kid victory over the Kansas Jayhawks on Sunday, the roster for the NCAA Final Four is set, and nary a number-one seed remains standing. The semifinals are going down this Saturday, with the University of Kentucky facing the University of Connecticut, also known as UConn, and Butler University facing Virginia Commonwealth University.

It’s been a Cinderella story from the Elite Eight to the Final Four, which means that your bracket is probably beyond saving. While you nurse the loss of your office pool buy-in, take a look at some of the best NCAA iReports we've received during March Madness:


VCU fans gave their team a send-off rally right before they departed for San Antonio last Thursday, where they edged out the Florida State Seminoles. And on Sunday, VCU students raised a raucous on-campus celebration immediately after their victory over Kansas. Meanwhile, University of Kentucky fans stormed Atlanta for the SEC tournament at the Georgia Dome, where the Wildcats beat the Flordia Gators to secure their own playoff berth.


Butler and Connecticut fans are officially on notice: You’re getting shown up! If you’ve got some fan videos of your Final Four team you want to share, submit them to our NCAA page and show your school spirit.

As a transplanted Nutmegger in Vermont, I will be watching Monday night with a UCONN hat on my head, wearing my Butler Bulldogs shirt.

Here in Indy, there is Butler fever EVERYWHERE!!! The DAWGS have caught the attention of people across the city, state, and country. They are an inspirational story, a great program, and a great school. They represent their school and the city of Indianapolis in such a wonderful manner. We're so proud of the Bulldogs and hope they continue their winning ways!!! GO DAWGS!!!

Hey, like the blog post said, Butler and UConn fans are on notice! If Indianapolis is repping blue-and-white all this week, send in some photos. Or, if you've got pictures or video of rallies, a superfan's collection of memorabilia, or your decked-out TV room where you catch all the action, send 'em our way!
