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 Primo, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.
WVU got off to a slow start last night, but some tenacious D got them back in the game and stifled the Bulls in the second half. I have all the coverage inside as well as an abundance of Kiffin fallout bits, since that's what everyone is talking about. Tips, suggestions and requests are always welcome. Here we go...
