The Shotgun/Throwdown: Thursday (2/25/10) Edition

Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU's best place for sports links, information, sophomoric humor and daily distractions; Now nationally recognized! We're being brought to you today by Finkle Einhorn Beer in honor of today's Miss Throwdown. LACES OUT DAN!!!

Kind of a slow news day, WVU-wise. These long layoffs between games suck for us fans, but it can be good for a team coming off a bad loss. Both BB teams get back in action on Saturday and I've got a few things to keep you occupied until tomorrow. Tips, suggestions and requests always help. It's all inside, after the jump...
