Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU's best place for sports links, information and daily distractions; Now nationally recognized! We're being brought to you today by Knickerbocker Beer, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.
Alright!! Now that's how we like it. I'm speaking of the men, of course. It was Da's night from the start and WVU clinches the double bye. Now, can we sneak into 2nd place Saturday? If we play like we did last night, we can. The women didn't finish quite the way they would have liked. Yet, they still finished in 2nd place with a double bye in their tournament. Recaps galore inside. Tips, suggestions and requests make my day. Jump in...
