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 Castle Lager, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.
Day 8 of practice is in the books and plenty of reports and features today. The big news being that Brad Starks was injured, has already had surgery and will be out for 12 weeks. I also have more on AD Oliver Luck's beer at Mountaineer Field proposal. Sorry for the lack of commentary, as I'm in a bit of a rush. Have a great weekend everyone!!
