The Shotgun/Throwdown: Tuesday (12/1/09) Edition

Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU's best place for sports links, information and entertainment. Today we're being brought to you by Hudepohl, as suggested by Mike.

Basketball gets another extended break after 3 games in 4 days before taking on Charleston in an exhibition Saturday. That means we are almost solely in Rutgers prep mode. Whenever I've driven to Jersey, you can get in for free, but you have to pay to leave. What does that tell you? The tips, suggestions and requests have been great so far, but we need more. It all starts here...
