Butler mascot remains banned from NCAA tournament but could appear at Final Four - ESPN
"Butler's bulldog will be impounded again next weekend.
School officials say Blue II will not travel to New Orleans, where the men's basketball team faces fourth-seeded Wisconsin in Thursday's regional semifinals.
NCAA officials banned live mascots from this weekend's games, saying there was not enough space and because of the quick turnarounds for other events in those arenas.
The NCAA says it may give Blue II an exemption if Butler makes it back to the Final Four in Houston."
