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 Jupiter Pale Ale, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.
Fall Camp Day 3 is in the books and complete coverage is inside. Thanks to our friends at Metro News and WVillustrated, there's plenty of videos to keep you occupied and informed. It's gonna be another hot one out there today. Stay cool if you can. I'm always looking for new and interesting content, so, if you have any tips, suggestions or requests, you can send them to me by email or Tweet me. Jump in (head or feet first, it doesn't matter)...
