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 Kokanee, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.
The freshman and other newcomers were finally made available to the media yesterday. There's plenty of video interviews with them. And since he's been causing such a stir on the field (and being newly available to the media) today is Bruce Irvin day. Caridi just tweeted a little tidbit about JJ, but we shall see. If you have any tips, suggestions or requests, you can send them to me by email or Twitter. It's all inside after the jump...
