The Shotgun/Throwdown: Tuesday (4/13/10) Edition

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 Barba Roja, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

If Ebanks didn't declare yesterday there wouldn't be much news to cover, with FB taking the day off. I've gathered up plenty for ya though. Keep your eyes and ears open for tips and suggestions. Let's jump to it, shall we?...
