The Shotgun/Throwdown: Wednesday (10/13/10) Edition

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 Flying Dog's Dogtoberfest, because Country Roads dared me, it still is and it's close enough.

It's B.J. day here at the Musket. Oh, grow up! I'm talking about USF's QB Daniels (but, yeah...I went there). Game previews are all over the place as well. And it's official: Jeremy Johnson is leaving WVU (not that it was a shock at this point). Also, head over to Voodoo Five (USF's blog) for more coverage. 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. Come on people, spread the word, we only have 59 fans right now...I know there are more than that out there that read this and have FB accounts...a lot more. Over the hump and follow the jump...
