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 Cerveza Poker, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.
OK....lots of Luck inside today. I'm reserving comment on any NCAA "issues" myself until someone other than Chuck Landon reports it or uses him as a source. And this whole conference re-alignment thing is playing out weird. Basically, Texas can do whatever it wants and is the quasi-dictator of the so-called Big 12. Now the Big 12 has ten members and the Big 10 has twelve. Dogs and cats living together!!! It's mass hysteria!!! If you have any tips, suggestions or requests, you can send them to me by email or Tweet me. Blow your vuvuzelas to your heart's content and see you after the jump...

This is why they rebuked the Pac-10....Big 12 will allow this and an uneven revenue stream to them (and A&M and Oklahoma)
