Nice , In ‘85 I was 7 and T-ROB is my earliest memory of a truly dymamic baller that played for the Vols. Still one of my favorites & I’m glad that he got
His **** together and has been around some recent games / anniversary celebrations to enjoy some love from the fans .

That shirt is sweet too btw..... if you don’t mind me asking where did you pick it up?)

He was awesome. I wonder what would have happened in 85 had he not gotten hurt

In that season, Vols were as dominate as any team in the country up to the point that T-Rob went down. Had he not gotten hurt? Had Tennessee faced Miami in the Sugar Bowl? It would have been for the National Championship. However, for some reason, I feel they would have sent Miami to play elsewhere so the sportswriters could decide it. They had a knack for doing that back then.

However, had Robinson been healthy? Odds are John Ward would have said, "the National Champion is clad in Big Orange" a whole lot sooner than he did. But had he still gotten caught in that drug sting? It would have broken our hearts even more.
