The Shotgun/Throwdown: Monday (9/20/10) 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 Abbey Ales, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

We finally get to start talking about LSU today. Just about everyone has had this game circled ever since the schedule was released. This game is the measuring stick game. Can WVU get the Big East that signature OOC victory it is woefully longing for? We also have a few more looks back at the Maryland game and some status updates on a couple players. If you have any tips, suggestions or requests for content that you think I ought to share, you can always send them to me by email or Twitter. See you after the jump...
