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 Saris, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

OK, big news that's just breaking is that Huggs just signed a 6'10" power forward that was previously committed to BC. Otherwise, there's plenty of other news (and the usual fun) inside to keep you occupied as well. If you have any tips, suggestions or requests, you can send them to me by email or Tweet me. UPDATED with new links 2:25pm. See you after the jump...

The videos of Miss Throwdown aren't that great today, so here's something to make up for it. Plus, I've never found a gallery of this lady on a SFW site that I could use for Miss Throwdown and I needed an excuse to post this video.
