PHOTO: Allen Robinson gets massive tattoo of "The Catch" vs. Michigan
What do you do when you make a monumental catch that leads to an epic quadruple-overtime victory?
You get a tattoo of it. You get a really, really large tattoo of it.
That’s what former Penn State receiver Allen Robinson did to commemorate his leaping grab over Michigan’s Channing Stribling in 2013. The 36-yard pass set up a game-tying touchdown and an eventual 43-40 victory against No. 18 Michigan.
It was moment Penn State fans won’t forget anytime soon, and thanks to his new ink, it’s a moment Robinson won’t forget anytime soon.
Here’s the nearly finished product:

Robinson went so far as to put Stribling’s name and number on the tattoo. And in it’s current unfinished stage, Stribling actually looks more prominent than Robinson.
But, as history showed, the Penn State wideout got the last laugh:
Robinson, as you might recall, wasn’t recruited by Michigan despite the fact that he was from Detroit. All he went on to do at Penn State was break the program’s single-season receptions record and earn consensus All-America honors.
He broke out in a big way this year in the NFL. Robinson tied for the league lead in touchdown receptions and he earned his first Pro Bowl nod.
But it’s clear that he still hasn’t forgotten the moments that made him one of the great receivers in Penn State history.
