Welcome, By-Godders, to the victory edition of the Shotgun/Throwdown, brought to you today by Ožujsko, a Croatian brew in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.
Well, that game was interesting...and for mostly the wrong reasons. Anyway, a victory is a victory. We've had our share of yawners and groaners under previous regimes too. There is plenty to work on, but if mistakes aren't corrected, don't be surprised if Syracuse gives us a game.
Sorry for the delay, but I didn't get home from the game until near 2am. Send in your tips and see you after the jump...
