The Shotgun/Throwdown: Tuesday (4/6/10) 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 Celis Pale Rider Ale, in honor of my favorite Clint Eastwood western. Why? Just because.

Things are a bit quieter today, but we're beginning to make the transition into spring football mode. I also think the reporters are taking a bit of a (probably much needed) breather. I've still got ya covered though. Send in your tips, suggestions and requests. See you after the jump...
