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 a beer made by those crazy Greeks, Vergina, because it sounds funny and I have that kind of sense of humor.
The burners under the coaches seat's have been given a full half turn up, at least in the media and public's perception. Either way, I trust Ollie. The biggest news over the weekend not involving football offensive ineptitude was the suspension of freshman guard Noah Cottrill. Not much is being said, but it doesn't look good for the young man. I hope whatever the issue may be, he gets his life straightened out. If you have any tips, suggestions or requests for content that you think is worth sharing, you can send them to me by email or Twitter and don't forget to "LIKE" the Smoking Musket MAIN PAGE on Facebook (follow this link, then hit "LIKE").
