The Shotgun/Throwdown: Tuesday (4/27/10) 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 Gordon Biersch Blonde Bock, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

Today was the last of the early morning practices on the schedule for the spring. Early reports are that it went well. On the BB front, Huggs added the last piece to the 2011 class yesterday. All of that and more inside. Email your tips, suggestions and requests or Tweet me. See you after the jump...
