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 Modelo Especial, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.
We've reached Gamecon 10. It's almost here. We've got a handful of season predictions and the usual smattering of player profiles. There's even a short appearance by "The Tandy." If you have any tips, suggestions or requests, you can send them to me by email or Twitter. See you after the jump...
