The Shotgun/Throwdown: Tuesday (8/31/10) 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 Sly Fox beer, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

It's Gamecon 4. By the time you read this, I'll (hopefully) already be in the air. I clipped as much as I could yesterday and posted those. I also posted several generic links to my most "fruitful" gathering places of articles and videos. Remember: No S/T on Wednesday. Hump Day will be posted early in it's stead. If you have any tips, suggestions or requests, you can send them to me by email or Twitter. See you after the jump...

T-minus 4 and counting...
