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 Yorkshire Warrior beer, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.
Today's the last day for priority renewal of FB season tickets (along with the corresponding MAC donation). Go to WVUGame.com to renew, if you haven't already. I've got mine renewed. It's also commencement weekend in Motown. Congratulations to all the students (not just the student-athletes) who've achieved a degree!!! It's an accomplishment to cherish your entire life. There's a few nice little tidbits inside, along with the usual distractions. If you have any tips, suggestions or requests, you can send them to me by email or Tweet me. Enjoy your weekend and see you after the jump...
