The Shotgun/Throwdown: Tuesday (9/14/10) 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 Robinson's Unicorn Best Bitter, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

Maryland prep is in full swing and unfortunately WVU just earned it's first points in the Fulmer Cup for 2010 has it's first legal trouble of the football season (I respectfully stand corrected by the boss). Words escape me right now, but all of the coverage (and more) you've grown to know and enjoy is inside. If you have any tips, suggestions or requests, you can send them to me by email or Twitter. Time for the "you know what" and I hope you are asking, "How high?"
