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 St. Pauli Girl, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.
Gamecon 8. The first week of classes are in the books and eight more days of waiting until tailgating (ok, maybe 7 days for this) and kickoff. All of the coverage you've become used to is inside. There's lots of WR coverage today. Stay tuned over the next couple days. I may have somewhat of an exclusive in the works. If you have any tips, suggestions or requests, you can send them to me by email or Twitter. Have a great weekend everyone and see you after the jump...
T-Minus 8 and counting...
