The Shotgun/Throwdown: Friday (5/7/10) Edition

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 Melbourne Bitter, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

Kind of a slow news day on the home front (still enough to keep you occupied a while, at least), but lots of news from around the league and I have the video that was shown at the Final Four Celebration on Tuesday (all 17 min worth). You can send in your tips, suggestions and requests by email or Tweet me. Have a great weekend everyone!! See you after the jump...
