The Shotgun/Throwdown: Monday (8/9/10) 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 Newport Beach Brewing Company, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

Welcome back to football on another sequential date day (8/9/10)!!! Football camp is in high gear and I've got oodles of coverage for ya, including galleries and videos galore. Today seems to be Scooter Berry day, as far as the player profiles go. Who will it be tomorrow? I broke down the NoN section into sub-sections today for your benefit. Reminder: Daily (off most weekends) posting of this feature has resumed. If you have any tips, suggestions or requests, you can send them to me by email or Tweet me. See you after the jump...
