The Shotgun/Throwdown: Labor Day (9/6/10) 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 Worthington's White Shield, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

It's "What's the word? F%&$ the HERD!!!" week in Mountaineer country and attention is shifting to that "green school down South." There's still a few lingering stories/articles from this past week's game as well. If you have any tips, suggestions or requests, you can send them to me by email or Twitter. Enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend and see you after the jump...
