The battle to determine the true #2 went unanswered as both teams failed to show for Tom Bowl XI. Hopes were raised upon the arrival of fans at Frank Schafer Field because the wire strung across the entrance was down, but no teams were to be seen. Not enough snow had fallen for there to be any footprints so if the teams had shown up and already played the game there were no eye-witnesses.
After the game, the official Tom Bowl helmet was presented by a loyal Tom Bowl fan to the Tom Bowl president. Attendance: 10.

I think the same person designed both Nebraska's and Wisconsin's helmets, but they were getting more into it when they did the Badger's W. I had a heck of a time finding pictures of anyone from Wisconsin other than Ron Dayne. You'd think he was a Heisman candidate or something. Why doesn't anyone ever talk about the fact that Jim Brown went to Syracuse and then played his entire NFL career with the Cleveland Browns? Basically he had the same helmet his entire career. He would have had more variety in his helmet life if he'd gone to another school, like Penn St. I liked the Charger's helmet better when it was white. You know what's annoying? How many teams in Michigan wear helmets that match U-M. What's so great about that design anyway? There is actually a color called pewter.
