Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown, Syracuse victory edition. Today we're brought to you by Zywiec, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.
We took care of Syracuse early and fairly often and now it's time to move on to "that team down South." Little brother, they are not. They might be the lonely distant cousin starving for attention. FYI, I'm not gonna clutter this thing up with a lot of recaps today. I think I got the "epic" thing out of my system (at least until next pregame edition). Send in your requests and away we go...

Pole dancing mishap video of the day. I've marked it for the good part so you don't have to watch it all for the payoff.
Sticking with the pole dancer theme, today's Miss Throwdown is a noted Pole dancer. Get your mind out of the gutter. She's Polish and she's currently on Dancing With the Stars. Meet Joanna Krupa.
