"I love Butler Community College and these guys that they have now are the best they've had. And the best coach,” Butler fan said Melvin Lane said.
"Coach Murrell and the team have had a great year it's a shame to go out this year but they made it to the final game which they have for many years and they've won may of them,” Butler fan Shane Krause said.
