On September 3rd, Bulter’s mascot Blue II passed away at the age of nine. For those not just affiliated with the Butler program and school, but many college basketball fans alike, this was a sad moment. The jovial and playful dog was a fixture for the basketball program, and with the team during their Final Four runs.

In yesterdays’ home football game against Dartmouth, two bones were placed on the Butler football helmets to honor Blue II. Below is a picture of the helmet from the “butlerblue3" Instagram account:
