The Shotgun/Throwdown: Monday (5/3/10) 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 Dinkel Acker Dark.

The Spring Game on a Friday night was a rousing success; much more than I expected. I have a feeling this may be a regular thing from now on. Plenty of coverage of the event, including "Old Timers" Game coverage, is inside. You can now email your tips, suggestions and requests or Tweet me. I'm all about options. Enjoy your Monday and see you after the jump...
