This is great. Playing in a top conference, when highly ranked...the stakes keep getting higher and higher. That said, the men have another big one tonight. We might even be ranked as high as 3rd when the polls are released later today. I certainly hope the weather doesn't keep the fans away should bee a doozy. Send in your tips, suggestions and requests. It all starts after the jump...

Miss Throwdown:

Today's Miss Throwdown is another example of why Italian women are held in such high regard, at least by me. She's a Sardinia born model famous for her appearances in the Italian television show Striscia la notizia. I presentare superbamente Giorgia Palmas.
