Butler players all originally planned to grow mustaches for a late-season game against Valparaiso, but they abandoned the plan immediately upon realizing how ridiculous they looked. Well, all except junior Matt Howard, who opted to keep his wispy mustache for the remainder of the season.

Howard's 'stache has developed somewhat of a cult following, evoking comparisons to Adam Morrison and even earning a facebook page in its honor.

"The mustache is awesome," guard Ronald Nored said. "I love it."
