The Shotgun/Throwdown: Tuesday (9/7/10) 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 Toohey's New, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

I hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend. Now it's back to the old grind and by grind, I mean grind up the little green turds down south up into itsy-bitsy pieces. All of the coverage (and more) you've grown to know and love is inside. If you have any tips, suggestions or requests, you can send them to me by email or Twitter. Time for the jump...
