The Shotgun/Throwdown: Tuesday (7/27/10) 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 Molson Golden, in honour (see what I did there?) of today's Miss Throwdown.

Summer training is winding down and the excitement is building already. Lot's of player videos and your usual smattering of articles inside. Several countdowns continue as well. If you have any tips, suggestions or requests, you can send them to me by email or Tweet me. See you after the jump...
