The Shotgun/Throwdown: Tuesday (8/24/10) 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 Ginger Twin India-Style Red Ale, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

We're a little light on the articles (at least compared to recently, there's still plenty) but I've made up for it with several Videos of Interest. There's also a few video links worth checking out. I could tell you more, but I'd have to kill you. If you have any tips, suggestions or requests, you can send them to me by email or Twitter. It's all after the jump...

T-minus 11 and counting
