The Shotgun/Throwdown: Tuesday (6/22/10) 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 Isenbeck, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

The 5 knuckle conference shuffle seems to have died down...for now. The NBA Draft is coming up Thursday, so there's a couple items of note about Da`Sean and Ebanks. Plenty of football news inside as well, along with the usual fun at the bottom. If you have any tips, suggestions or requests, you can send them to me by email or Tweet me. See you after the jump...
