The Shotgun/Throwdown: Monday (6/7/10) 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 Mythos, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

Since I last left you, the world, and not just the college and sporting world, has lost a great figure in Coach Wooden. He left an indelible mark on all he touched. Summer football conditioning and BB camps are well under way and WVU has a baseball prospect expected to be drafted highly. The WVU news you crave is inside. Bon appetit!! If you have any tips, suggestions or requests, you can send them to me by email or Tweet me. See you after the jump...
