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 Cain's Finest Lager, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.
OK, so the injury report was a little worse than expected, but, not too bad. Urban was a bit of a surprise to me. In other stories covered, the debate rages on of "To play or not to play." My opinions, I believe, have been quite clear on this matter. ESPN has a SEC game from Starkville tonight to keep you sated until tomorrow. Warning: If you thought the vuvuzelas were bad during the World Cup, they've got nothing on the cowbells you'll hear tonight. If you have any tips, suggestions or requests, you can send them to me by email or Twitter. The fun is after the jump...
