The Shotgun/Throwdown: BET Quarterfinals (3/11/10) Edition

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 Sixpoint Craft Ales, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown and the BET.

So...welcome back my friends, to the show that never ends, we're so glad you could attend. Come inside, come inside... It's finally here: BET game-day. And yes, we have to wait some more as the Mounties aren't scheduled to tip until after 9 pm, and it'll probably be closer to 9:30-9:45. The quarterfinal action gets underway at noon. I really wish I could skip work this afternoon. Hmmm... Maybe I will. It's a music heavy edition inside. Country Roads was reading my mind the other day. I hope you all enjoy. Tips, suggestions and requests make my life easier. Come and see the show...

Let's GOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I never really watched the show, but this is too well done to not feature here.

I've always loved this song and it's appropriate today, I think.

Miss Throwdown:

Today's Miss Throwdown is an absolute talent and gorgeous to boot. Here's a gallery of New York native, Alicia Keys and TSM's BET theme song.

Rap's not my cup of tea, that's why I prefer this version a bit:
