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 Presidente, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.
We are back to daily (sans weekends), which can mean only one thing: Football is back in season!!!! Don't get me wrong, I'm extremely upset about the allegations (and that's all they are right now, due process people). All your usual info and fun is inside (including the Eva Mendes Sex Tape). If you have any tips, suggestions or requests, you can always send them to me by email or Tweet me. Have a good weekend, see you back here again Monday morning and now it's time to do the jump...
