Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU's best place for sports links, information, sophomoric humor and daily distractions; Now nationally recognized! We're being brought to you today by Saigon 333 beer, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.
The women just keep on rolling and that's always nice. We expected to see something special in BB this year, only it seems to be happening on the other gender's team. Not that the men haven't been special as well, but it wasn't expected from the women...at all. Keep the tips, suggestions and requests coming. See you after the jump...
