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 Great Lakes Brewing's Oktoberfest, because it still is.
Of course, the biggest news of the day is the two recruits that just committed to WVU and Huggs. 'Cuse prep is in full swing as well. I've got you covered regardless. 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 main page on Facebook. I appreciate the "Likes" on this posting, but we're really hoping to increase the "Likes/Fans" of the main page. Plus, if you do, you'll get the updates in your "News Feed," so you'll have that going for you...which is nice. See you after the jump...
