"That was absolutely the
worst day I have ever been in-

Following a scoreless first

TOM HARMON CRUISES through the Ohio State defense in the 1939 game. Michigan scored
a touchdown on a fake field goal in the waning minutes of the fourth quarter to top the Buck-
eyes. Harmon, known as 'Ole 98' to the alumni, is best known to today's Michigan students as
Euell Gibbons' predecessor on cereal commercials. Michigan's only Heisman Trophy winner,
the teams he played for never lost to Ohio State. "Tornado Tom" still holds the Big Ten re-
cord for career points. The prone player is Forest Evashevski. Evashevski quarterbacked
Fritz Crisler's teams of 1938-40, calling all the plays. Evashevski, who later coached Iowa to
a national championship in the late fifties and was subsequently the Hawkeye athletic dirdc-
tor, now heads a real estate firm in Northern Michigan.

"I had to call the plays," re-
marked Evy, "we played both
ways and the only time we talk-
ed to the coach was at half-
time."
"EVASHEVSKI was a great
quarterback," Crisler said. "He
came to Michigan as a center,
and he didn't like it when I
switched him to quarterback. So
I told him 'you've been looking
at the world upside down, now
you can look it straight in the
face," Crisler quipped.
"He was really a great block-
er. As quarterback, he led most
of the plays and made the key
blocks," Crisler went on. "A
great part of Harmon's success
was Evashevski's blocks."
