The Shotgun/Throwdown: Wednesday (10/6/10) 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 Medalla Light, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

Vegas week is in full swing. Heck, Dobies from the DA & Pitt Tribune-Review must have got his schedule crossed, as he's out there and not Motown. With all the focus on Devine's health, Geno is also getting focused on to pick up some production slack. Videos of Stew's presser and interviews with multiple players and coaches abound today. There's also an update on Da`Sean as well. 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. See you after the jump...
