It has been a very exciting start to the bye week after Tennessee’s 45-42 come-from-behind win in Columbia on Saturday night. Vol Nation is absolutely buzzing – and rightfully so – over the recent emergence and stellar play of sophomore quarterback Joshua Dobbs, who broke records and became the first quarterback in Tennessee history to rush for over 100 yards and pass for over 300 yards in the same game. Dobbs would finish with 301 passing yards and 166 rushing yards against South Carolina, which earned him an array of awards from various outlets across the nation and drew high praise from national pundits, opposing coaches and even NFL scouts.
But it isn’t just the fact that Dobbs has pulled Tennessee’s offense out of the cellar and led an historic comeback that has made him so popular; the guy is also a bonafide genius. Robert Joshua Dobbs – his teammates call him Astro – is an Aerospace Engineering major at the University of Tennessee, he is carrying a 4.0 GPA and is currently enrolled in 16 hours of coursework. His career goal, according to him, is to design and build airplanes.
All of this information lends itself well to Vol Nation’s creative minds on twitter and elsewhere, so here’s a look at some of the best photoshops, GIFs and Vine videos that have popped up in recent days (and some great ones from last season) featuring Joshua Dobbs, space, rockets or some variation thereof. Enjoy.
