The Shotgun/Throwdown: Golden Eagles Hangover (12/20/11) 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 Black Oak X.

Today, we have all of the usual fallout from last night's victory over Tennessee Tech, including recaps, features, galleries and videos. We also have some Orange Bowl bits and news on Holgorsen's contract, which still isn't completely finalized yet. There's also lawsuit news developments, but with everybody suing everybody...I can't really keep straight who the developments are benefiting, if either one. Maybe our law team can help sort it out in the comments.
