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 Genesee Cream Ale, as suggested by AH.
The news today is kind of a random smattering. There's basketball news (men regrouping, yet improving and the women winning, if not all that pretty), some football news (Holgorsen and staff changes, plus some weird bowl fallout) and some football recruiting news (a couple commits are solid, others, not so much). Anywho...it's all inside and welcome to 2011.
