The Shotgun/Throwdown: Monday (4/12/10) 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 Alhambra, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

Spring is definitely here. I wish I was in Morgantown for the warm weather and the sights (and not necessarily sports related). The first week of Spring Practice is over and there's several articles, photo galleries, and videos to keep you occupied. The HCBS videos may be redundant, I didn't get a chance to watch them all yet. I almost forgot, I'm on Twitter now @WVUIE97...follow, if you dare. Keep the tips, suggestions and requests coming. See you after the jump...
