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 Mahou Clásica, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.
Summer keeps on rolling along. Only a few more weeks until FB camp opens. I've got all of the usual coverage and fun inside for your enlightenment and pleasure. A few more FB season ticket packages went on sale today and so did EA's NCAA Football '11. There's a couple reviews inside, but I'm more interested in your opinions before I break down and get one for myself. If you do pick up a copy, please leave your review in the comments section. Any tips, suggestions or requests, can always be sent to me by email or Twitter. See you after the jump...

Today's Miss Throwdown is a Spanish sportscaster and WAG to a member of the victorious Spanish World Cup team. Here's one that puts Erin Andrews to shame, Sara Carbonero (and don't judge by the header picture in the link). Those eyes kill me! Viva España!
