According to the Tallahassee Democrat, “Thrasher said Robinson and former FSU President Eric Barron had been discussing the topic ‘for a long time’ and insinuated their agreement to the plan.”
Robinson says he never agreed to any such thing.
“My position has always been that this is a bad idea,” Robinson said. “You have what has been held up as a model of collaboration nationwide, and here we are talking about separating it without any solid reasons for doing it. All this talk about how Robinson and Barron agreed to it, is really comical to me.”
