Lucas Oil Stadium

(Luke Winn/SI)

INDIANAPOLIS -- A Saturday-night, pregame photo-blog from the Final Four ...

Lucas Oil Stadium has a strict no-bikes-allowed policy. I didn't stick around to see what this guy did with his ride, but this woman flagged him down to ask (I think) for a ride on his pegs.

The stadium isn't nearly as pro-Butler on Saturday as it was at the open practices on Friday. The pro-Bulldogs crowd is mostly confined one corner ... although the school's actual Bulldog mascot, Butler Blue II, was wandering around the press room while the team was warming up.

My tour guide from Friday's Butler campus visit post, Ryan Waggoner, made good on his word to dress up like David. And he made it in the front row of the Bulldogs student section -- because he lined up at 5 a.m. to secure the spot. Now we get to find out if that slingshot actually works.
