The Shotgun/Throwdown: Thursday (9/16/10) 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 Moosehead Light, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

It's getting closer. We have several stories on the beleaguered OL and interviews galore, including more on the brothers Gloster facing each other. Elsewhere, the women's soccer team faces the first Backyard Brawl of the school year tonight in Morgantown and Cincinnati tries to defend what's left of the BE's honor tonight in Raleigh. If you have any tips, suggestions or requests, you can send them to me by email or Twitter. See you after the jump...
