The Shotgun/Throwdown: Tuesday (9/21/10) 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 Hurricane Reef Caribbean Style Pilsner, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

Between SBNation crashing and our internet at work being spotty, I'm a tad bit vexed at this point. I would have had this posted by 9 am if not for the technical issues. Anywayyyy...Focus here today is almost completely on LSU. I've even got some good notes and articles from the enemy camp. If you have any tips, suggestions or requests for content that you think I should share, you can always send them to me by email or Twitter. See you after the jump...
