So, yea. any "HALP" is appreciated.

Thank you
P.S. I just hit 80 so armor is still working on today im hoping to get a piece of T9.

Prolly not the advice you're looking for but:

Spam randoms

over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over until your eyes bleed or you develop carpal tunnel. Any emblems you get will quickly replace gear found in heroics and as a tank you should get instant queue.

When possible spam ICC 5 mans reg and heroic as much as possible.

Also, if you have the capital, buy the crafter gear, saronite swordbreakers, white knight's breastplate. I would avoid the ICC crafter gear as you probably can't afford the drop in defense (540 is the minimum in case you didn't know :D)

Anyways, i hope that helps! congrats on 80!!!!

Before you can spam randoms over and over and over again, you're going to need to get at least 535 defense for heroics. That and about 22-25k HP should be your start goal before you can begin tanking heroics. I know you probably don't want to hear this, but the easiest way to do that will probably to run heroics as DPS until you get enough emblem tank gear. If that's not possible, hit 535 defense and find a guild that will help you gear up through heroics. If you're looking for advice such as talents, glyphs, gear, what stats you need, etc. there are plenty of resources around, right here on TankSpot and other places on the net, no point in reciting pages of info that can be found with a little searching.

Jesus, I didn't even realize that's you, Ryan, LOL. Get on vent and I'll walk you through the basics. EDIT: On second thought.. it's kind of late for vent.. hehe, PM me your Xfire or AIM or something.
