The Shotgun/Throwdown: Tuesday (3/29/11) Edition

New, comments

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 Corona Extra, in honor of today's Miss Throwdown.

We're undergoing some renovations here at the Shotgun/Throwdown. Not to worry, this is still going to be your best place to start the day and get your WVU sports news. The main thing to start, is there will be a lot less redundancy of the same story from several sources in order to pare down the number of links daily, in an effort to hopefully make this easier to read. Today's story lines focus on the latest addition to the WVU football coaching staff and previewing the start of spring drills, with a few random bits thrown in for flavor.
