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 Black Sheep Ale, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown, our black uniforms and our appearance in the Final Four.
It just keeps getting better and better. I used the term "black sheep" not because of my opinion, but the seemingly national opinion (see THIS FanShot). I have a feeling this is going to be a fun week of coverage. I love the tips, suggestions and requests. Don't forget to VOTE. Exotic Eight voting ends tonight at 8 EDT with the Fantasized Four revealed sometime after 9 pm EDT. Let's jump in...

NCAA Analysis of the Week:
Today's Miss Throwdown is a model from the UK and has been featured in a certain "bunny mag" (UK edition). I had to dig a bit for a SFW galley. Here's Gemma Massey.
