The Shotgun/Throwdown: Wednesday (9/29/10) 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 Fuller's London Porter, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

Coach seemed in a much better mood yesterday. Maybe he likes the idea of adding TCU, too. That, of course, is the big news of the moment. All the coverage that you've come to know and love (and more, as usual) is inside. If you have any tips, suggestions or requests for content that you think is worth sharing, you can send them to me by email or Twitter. Go ahead and jump (you know you want to)...
