Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU's best place for sports links, information and daily distractions. We're being brought to you today by Antarctica, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.
Of course the big news is that everybody's favorite recruiting violator, Kiffin, is heading back to USC, where he made his name. What recruiting fallout will that cause and will it help WVU? It certainly can't hurt. The women kept their streak alive last night by beating Nova. Can the men bounce back against USF on the road? I guess we'll all find out tonight. Send in your tips, suggestions and requests. It all starts after the jump...
