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 Spendrups, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.
We've reached Gamecon 2. Only two more days until our beloved Mountaineers kick off the 2010 season. I don't know about you, but I'm chomping at the bit. Several other teams kickoff tonight if you need a quick fix to tide you over. I've got lot's and lot's of coverage inside (the one thing bad about taking a day off of this). If you have any tips, suggestions or requests, you can send them to me by email or Tweet me. See you after the jump...
T-minus 2 and counting...

If you didn't see this yesterday, this is worth the look. Who knew "The Playmaker" had a booty fetish? (if if find a better version, I'll replace this one.)
