Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU's best place for sports links, information, sophomoric humor and daily distractions; Now nationally recognized! We're being brought to you today by Saint Arnold Brewery, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.
We are off the schneid!! The men notched victory #20 last night with a nice performance over Providence. Yes, we let them get too close for comfort a couple times in the second half, but we answered with some runs of our own. There is a surprising lack of coverage of last night's game today. Mostly just AP wire recaps all over the place...weird. I got you covered anyway. Both men and women get back in action Saturday. I love getting tips, suggestions and requests. See you after the jump...
