The Shotgun/Throwdown: Tuesday (1/25/11) 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 Buttface Amber Ale, in dis-honor of the buttfaces that keep letting the fans, their school and more importantly, their team down.

I made the crack about filling the roster with JVer's, but I totally agree with Huggs. The team comes first above any individual player. In other news, the WVU women travel to DC tonight to take on a highly ranked Hoya squad. Terms of the revised contract for Stew and the term sheet for Holgorsen have been revealed. And recruiting is coming along quite nicely, both for football and basketball. I hope to have a football commit summary/rundown for you guys to be posted sometime tomorrow.

If any of you didn't realize, clicking on "LIKE" on the individual articles just likes that particular article, but doesn't "LIKE" our main page. Many thanks to those who already "LIKE" us. We are now at 625. Let's see how fast we can get to 700. Please, spread the word!! Today's dose is after the jump...
