Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU's best place for sports links, information and daily distractions; Now nationally recognized! We're being brought to you today by Skyscraper Brewing Company, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.
This has been a really slow week for articles from the usual sources for some reason. Anywhooo... The men are back in action at home tomorrow against an improved Seton Hall team. Improved from the team that almost beat us the first time, no less. In women's action, WVU travels to Tampa to take on the Bulls tomorrow afternoon. There's a full slate of BE BB to keep you occupied too. Keep the tips, suggestions and requests coming. I'm off to Tobacco Road. Have a great weekend!!! All the fun starts after the jump...
