The Shotgun/Throwdown: Thursday (1/7/10) 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 Birra Moretti, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

The men put together a pretty good "complete" game last night, but I'm sure Huggs will find something to his disliking. That's probably one of the reasons he has as many wins as he does over his career. Plenty inside to keep you occupied for a while. Suggestions and requests are a tremendous help. See you after the jump...
