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 Jesus Beer, as requested by Oregon Mountaineer.
Let's see...the men clamped down the D and got a good OOC victory, the women played a great first half-3 quarters of a game and we honored one of our all time greats, while updating the honor to another. I think that sums up the weekend fairly well. The men are back in action tomorrow against DePaul (is that kind of like the Anti-Paul, kind of like if you get Pauled, you need some DePaul to clear it up?). It's BE action the rest of the way out until Big Dance time. Isn't that also a nice feeling to not worry about going Dancing? Now, we worry about what seed. Keep the tips, suggestions and requests coming. It all starts after the jump...
