Welcome, By-Godders, to The Shotgun Throwdown, WVU’s best place for sports links, information, sophomoric humor, and daily distractions. Let’s get into it.


Former West Virginia quarterback Jarret Doege has been named the starter for the Edmonton Elks as they face off against the Ottawa Redblacks this evening.

Doege made his CFL debut in the Elks game against the Toronto Argonauts this past Sunday, coming in as the third-string QB. Despite the limited playing time, Doege completed nine of eleven passes for 163 yards and two touchdowns — one of which came off of an insanely lucky deflection.

You can watch Doege lead the Elks against the Redblacks — who feature the Mountaineer trio of Hakeem Bailey, Alonzo Addae and Deshawn Stevens — tonight at 7:30PM Eastern for free (with an email address) on CFL+
