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 Crown Lager, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.
News and features are unexpectedly flowing profusely for it being summer. There's videos, interviews, stories a-plenty inside. I've got stuff from the football side of things and even some from the basketball side of things as well. I didn't think the early summer would be so busy, but as long as it's flowing, I'll be here linking. I've got the good stuff from the World Cup at the bottom too (beat Slovenia!!!!). If you have any tips, suggestions or requests, you can send them to me by email or Tweet me. Have a great weekend everyone!! As usual, it's all after the jump...
