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 George Dickel Barrel Select, because I really just want to forget last night's result.
The only worse thing than losing to Pitt, is losing to Pitt in person (with a dweeb Pitt fan sitting amongst you, no less). I had such high hopes in my return to the Coliseum last night. I've never seen a team drive at will like that as I did last night. Anyway, unfortunately, I have all of the post-game fallout inside. On the other side of the basketball gender wall, the women get their shot at redemption tonight when they host the UConn Huskies. Yep, the Big East is equally fun for both genders, especially when you're struggling.
