Around Butler University these days, it's hard to tell fact from fiction, real from what might have been dreamed. After the Bulldogs men's basketball team won the NCAA West Regional on Saturday, university President Bobby Fong was carried around on the shoulders of students and there was a campus rally at 2:30 in the morning when the team arrived home. Matt Howard, the team's center, was surprised to learn that his mustache now has its own Facebook page. This is what happens when an underdog basketball team from Indiana starts knocking off heavy favorites.

Reporting from Houston Since arriving in Texas last week, Kemba Walker had visions. Snipping nets. Hearing "One Shining Moment. " Confetti floating around him. While the scene is an annual tradition, Walker accurately imagined himself and his Huskies teammates in the sea of red, white and blue streamers that drifted onto the Reliant Stadium court Monday night after a 53-41 victory over Butler in a game that was more slugfest than slamfest....

"They'll be a favorite next year." Krzyzewski could be right — as long as a few things at Butler stay the same.

HOUSTON -- Butler is ready for Part II. After playing last season's underdog role and advancing to the NCAA tournament final, the Bulldogs did it again Saturday -- only this time as the favorite. Despite being a low No. 8 seed, the Bulldogs defeated 11th-seeded Virginia Commonwealth, 70-62, for another shot at winning it all. The Bulldogs became the nation's lovable underdogs last season, drawing comparisons to the movie Hoosiers thanks to their small-school stature, Indianapolis roots and famous Hinkle Fieldhouse home.

Reporting from Salt Lake City Butler refused to go home. Now the Bulldogs have a chance to go back to Indianapolis on their own terms Returning to the city as conquerors carrying mid-major dreams was not on the Bulldogs' minds, they all have claimed, but that has come to the forefront after a 63-59 victory over top-seeded Syracuse at EnergySolutions Arena.

The hard part about real life, as opposed to movies, is you can't edit film on the two shots star Gordon Hayward missed in the final five seconds that would have given Butler the NCAA title over Duke. You can't let Hayward take the baseline jumper until he makes it, or do a dozen retakes on the hold-your-breath half-court heave at the buzzer that clanked off the rim. That only works, most times, in your dreams, in the driveway. OK, it worked once, in Butler's gym, for an underdog Indiana high school team, in 1954, and they made a movie, but when do sequels ever work?

Reporting from Houston — Butler's once-in-a-lifetime trip to last year's Final Four was great news for everyone involved at Butler except for every future incoming recruiting class. So much for their lifetimes? "Hearing about what it was like last year from the veterans makes you jealous," Butler freshman Khyle Marshall joked Friday in Butler's temporary locker room at Reliant Stadium. "I watched last year and would just wish I had been born earlier so I could have been part of it. " Little did he know.

Connecticut freshman guard Jeremy Lamb recently was struck with this thought: "Man, I can't believe we're in the Final Four. " He could have easily tossed Kentucky, Butler and Virginia Commonwealth into the mix. Outside of two or three blindfolded dart throwers, no one believed in this Final Four. Imagine, three weeks ago, writing out Saturday's lineup cards for Houston's Reliant Stadium: Butler versus VCU in one national semifinal game and Connecticut versus Kentucky in the nightcap.
