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 Barley Island Brewing Company, in honor of our host state of Indiana.
Coverage is getting heavier and my heart and stomach are having harder times dealing with this wait. You can say I'm a bit uptight at the moment. Keep the tips, suggestions and requests coming and don't forget to VOTE. Also, if you're going to the games this weekend, send in pics of the experience, we may use them in a post (but we're not promising). I'll be back tomorrow with a game day edition, as usual. One more day...
