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 Skinny Blonde beer (yes, it's a real beer) in honor of today's Miss Throwdown (for origin, not description).
It's Gamecon 9. Funny thing is that there's actually more BB news today. The non-conference schedule was released yesterday and limited practice started Tuesday. Back on the FB side, I've got a couple of podcasts with HCBS and several player profiles and interviews. There's a special video leading off the Videos of Interest section, by the way, and the second one in the Videos of (Dis)Interest is one that you'll have to see to believe. 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 9 and counting
