The Shotgun/Throwdown: Tuesday (7/13/10) Edition

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

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 Mahou Clásica, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

Summer keeps on rolling along. Only a few more weeks until FB camp opens. I've got all of the usual coverage and fun inside for your enlightenment and pleasure. A few more FB season ticket packages went on sale today and so did EA's NCAA Football '11. There's a couple reviews inside, but I'm more interested in your opinions before I break down and get one for myself. If you do pick up a copy, please leave your review in the comments section. Any tips, suggestions or requests, can always be sent to me by email or Twitter. See you after the jump...

Miss Throwdown:
