Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU's best place for sports links, information and daily distractions. We're being brought to you today by Sagres, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.
Huggs leads the men into DePaul territory tonight. Will the second half of Saturday's win carry over? We shall see. There's a great article/interview by WVIllustrated's Geoff Coyle inside.
