The Shotgun/Throwdown: Thursday (1/28/10) Edition

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 Olde English 800, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

The women got back on track last night against Seton Hall. Otherwise, it's kind of a quiet news day on the home front. Anyway, I've still got you plenty inside to occupy yourselves for a while. Remember, I work for tips. Time to jump in...
