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 Crown Brewing, in honor of our host state of Indiana.
West Bound and Down...We gonna do what they say can't be done. We got a long way to go and a short time to get there. Short time equals 80 more minutes. 80 more minutes to climb the highest peak WVU has ever climbed. The Mountaineers have fallen just short before, in what seems a lifetime ago, before many of us were born. The waiting is starting to get a bit agonizing for me, but I'm trying...trying to still enjoy this. Keep the tips, suggestions and requests coming. There's still time to vote in the Hump Day Bracket semis. Finals will be revealed sometime after 8 EDT tonight. Here we go...
