"It's a cool helmet, but I wasn't too big into it," nose guard Kwame Geathers said.
Georgia players are getting a visa gift card and a football from the school.
The NCAA limits gifts from a school at $400 and from the bowl at $550.
Here's what players from both teams are also getting from the bowl: a $150 Best Buy gift card, a Fossil Watch, a $25 Outback Steakhouse gift card and an Outback Bowl hat.
"I'm probably going to get an iPhone," cornerback Sanders Commings said about plans for his gift cards. "Right now I have the BlackBerry and I think it's time to make a change."
"I've got to get stuff for my mom, my brothers, it's a lot of people," Geathers said of holiday gifts. "And my girlfriend."
More underclassmen give NFL consideration
Add Commings to the list of Georgia underclassmen who submitted their name to the NFL's college advisory committee. He said it would take a first-round grade for him to enter the draft, which isn't expected.
"It's just good to see where you stand as far getting to the next level," Commings said.
"I would imagine every junior in the United States of America is kind of wondering when is the time and when is not the time," Georgia coach Mark Richt said.
Geathers, draft eligible as a third-year sophomore, said he didn't submit his name and hasn't thought about leaving. His brother Robert is a former Bulldogs defensive end who left Georgia after his junior season.
Junior safety Shawn Williams was hesitant to say whether he submitted his name, but indicated he hasn't.
"I haven't really been thinking about it lately," Williams said. "It crossed my mind. Hopefully one day I'll get there."
Williams was even talking Sunday about Corey Moore becoming a starting safety next year while Moore was being interviewed nearby.
"Who knows? He may be at strong (safety) and I may be at free or it could go vice versa," Williams said about a scenario that would mean Rambo departed "Put Sanders at free or I play strong."
Tickets in demand
Charles and quarterback Aaron Murray will have big cheering sections in their hometowns of Tampa for the bowl.
"It's $75 a ticket," Naseline Charles, Orson's mother, said last week. "I don't know if you buy them in bulk, you're able to get a discount."
Players get six tickets, which is hardly enough for Murray and Charles.
"My mom's already called me asking `Hey, can you get like 16 to 20 more tickets?'" Murray said.
Commings said Charles asked him for a couple of his, but he's not sure if he will have extras.
