The Shotgun/Throwdown: Thursday (5/6/10) 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 Watney's Red Barrel Beer, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

I certainly hope everyone enjoyed the festivities surrounding Cinco de Mayo yesterday. It seems I missed another holiday on Tuesday: Star Wars Day - May the Fourth be with you. Gotta give 'em credit for the creativity at least. And I almost forgot...Happy Birthday Drue! Send in your your tips, suggestions and requests via email or Tweet me. See you after the jump...
