The Shotgun/Throwdown: Monday (10/12/09) Edition

Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown, Syracuse victory edition. Today we're brought to you by Zywiec, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

We took care of Syracuse early and fairly often and now it's time to move on to "that team down South." Little brother, they are not. They might be the lonely distant cousin starving for attention. FYI, I'm not gonna clutter this thing up with a lot of recaps today. I think I got the "epic" thing out of my system (at least until next pregame edition). Send in your requests and away we go...
