Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU's nationally recognized best place for sports links, information, sophomoric humor and daily distractions. We're being brought to you today by Sam Adams Octoberfest because that's what it is.
No time to dwell on UNLV, as a likely angry (and somewhat embarrassed) USF team is coming to town on Thursday. Still, there is a bit of lingering coverage to peruse. In other news, it seems that Jeremy Johnson is having second thoughts about being a Mountaineer once again (does that make them 3rd or 4th thoughts?). Whether it is truly homesickness or depth chart sickness, only he really knows. My guess is it's some combination of the two. If you have any tips, suggestions or requests for content that you think is worth sharing, you can send them to me by email or Twitter and don't forget to "LIKE" the Smoking Musket on Facebook. Time for the Monday jump...
