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 Beachside Beer, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.
It's the first day of classes in the University City, which means the players will start to get into a regular routine. There was a nice turnout for both the scrimmage Saturday and Fan Day yesterday. There's plenty of (professional) pics and videos of those inside. If you have any tips, suggestions or requests, you can send them to me by email or Twitter. It's time to get started today...

High Standards: The Mountaineers are setting lofty expectations for themselves in 2010 - WVillustrated.com
"Our expectations are beyond anybody’s expectations," says senior Chris Neild. "We put more pressure on ourselves than anybody ever could and we know that going into the games."
"Even before training camp began, Thomas and other players have said they think this team has more talent than others they’ve been on that have had more success. It has become clear that these athletes are holding themselves accountable this season in a way they haven’t for some time. If they want the BIG EAST title and BCS bowl, they need to fight for it."
