Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU's best place for sports links, information and daily distractions. Today we're being brought to you by Mendicino Brewing's White Hawk Select IPA, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.
The men took care of business last night. It wasn't pretty, but it could have been a lot worse. Ohio State comes to town next for the last OOC game on the slate. Don't look now, but the women are on a roll. They probably won't get the attention they deserve, but they are good...VERY GOOD. We'll start to find out how good this weekend when they take on ND. There is plenty of coverage of both teams inside. Suggestions and requests are always welcomed. Jump right in...
