Roy Williams has donated that seat to the memory of the late Butch Ryan.
Seat 13 in Row A of Section 140 at Indianapolis' Lucas Oil Stadium will be left empty in Butch Ryan's honor. He died in 2013.
A Wisconsin State-Journal obituary of Butch Ryan noted he would often, "accompany his son to the Final Four and steal the show with his storytelling in the hotel lobby."
