Robert Irwin Jewelers ran a contest earlier in the month for anyone that purchased jewelry during a certain time period would get a refund of their purchase if the Tigers returned the opening kickoff of the half for a touchdown.  Ashley Furniture has run a similar contest for the past several years,  rewarding customers with Free Furniture if The Tiger Basketball team won the NCAA championship.  Ashleys Furniture never had to pay up so who would think that Robert Irwin Jewelers would have to pay up.  Watch the video below to see how sophomore Running Back Tony Pollard is responsible for a few Memphians having free jewelry.
