The Shotgun/Throwdown: Tuesday (4/5/11) 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 Admiralteyskoye, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

Spring football drills don't continue until tomorrow, but there's still plenty of coverage even on the off days in between sessions. There's also an absolute must-read on Amos Zereoue and the personal tragedy he's dealing with.
