The Shotgun/Throwdown: Tuesday (1/5/10) Edition

Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU's best place for sports links, information and daily distractions. Today we're being brought to you by Flying Dog In Heat Wheat Ale (as suggested by Josh).

WVU has lost another one of it's own. Former football coach Gene Corum has passed. I'm too young to really know his impact, but he was a Mountaineer, and that's enough for me to miss him. Basketball news is finally starting to dominate and even some good news from the women's team. Tips, suggestions and requests help make this thing go. Let's get going...
