Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU's nationally recognized best place for sports links, information, sophomoric humor and daily distractions. We're being brought to you today by San Diego Brewing Company, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.
The women are back in action tonight, as they take on the San Diego St. Aztecs for a berth into the Sweet Sixteen. I have previews for that to go along with the usual plethora of men's coverage. I love getting tips, suggestions and requests. Don't forget to vote for berths into the Exotic Eight. See you after the jump...

Pigtail Gallery of the Week:
Today's Miss Throwdown is kind of a throwback, but, as you will see from the gallery, she's still got it. Here's one of the original Victoria's Secret models and the bride from the November Rain video. It's Axl's ex, Stephanie Seymour.
