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 Amstel, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and you all still have as many fingers and toes as you started the weekend with. The off-season rolls along with, among other things, a countdown of memorable games at MPS/MF. And evidently, the holiday weekend also marked Robert Sands weekend as well. If you have any tips, suggestions or requests, you can send them to me by email or Tweet me. Time to do the jump...
