No matter where they are these days, Butler fans are relishing their second chance at a national title.

"You know, just walking around, basking in the glory, having people cheer us on as we walk through the streets and stuff," said Butler Student Max Sapiro. "People honking as they go by yelling, 'Go Dawgs!'"

"People know you're from Butler with your Butler shirts on," said Butler student Ari Kasle. "They're like, 'Oh yeah, look at those guys again.'"

"Last year it was a gift," said Butler Alumn Cherrill Farnsworth. "Now it's like, 'We gotta do it. We gotta do it!'"

Farnsworth was so excited for the Dawg's second chance at making basketball history that she threw a Butler Party at her Houston home. She also invited distinguished guests Butler Blue II and Butler University president Dr. Bobby Fong.

"If we did it once, it's a Cinderella story. To come back it's creating a tradition," Dr. Fong said. "I hope it will be a long standing tradition in the years to come."

Some Butler fans who traveled to Bracket Town took advantage of a photo-op that allowed them to climb a latter and pretend to cut down the net. Butler alumn Brad Burnett said he wanted to brush up his skills.

"I think it's time to practice cutting down the net and practice the celebratory back bump," said Butler alumn Brad Burnett. "Hopefully we can do it again tomorrow night."

For other fans, there is no tomorrow and certainly no second chances.

"Just grabbing some souvenirs and probably head home," said Kentucky University fan Chris Owen.

Kentucky fans found those souvenirs on clearance racks today, but 50 percent markdowns are far from the biggest bargain of the Final Four right now.

"With Kentucky losing, a large contingent of fans from Kentucky won't be going to the game," said Lou Chaump, a ticket broker with TicketCity. "So now they're selling their tickets."

Chaump says that means Butler fans who couldn't initially afford tickets also have a second chance. Lower level seats are currently available for less than $100. Upper deck tickets are going for under $50. "You literally can buy a ticket for less than a tank of gas," Chaump said.

"A few of my friends who didn't come down for the trip are definitely going to try and come down right now for the title game," Sapiro said. "So hopefully it will be easy for them to get tickets."

Of course not all losing fans are selling their tickets, but you can probably guess who their second choice is.

"We're rooting for Butler," said VCU fan Terry Oates. "Go Bulldogs. Ugliest mascot I've ever seen. No, I’m just kidding about that!"
