    Re: Any update on the headsets?

    Good question - I assume the home team would forego just to make sure there was no question of 'manufacturing an advantage'

    Re: Any update on the headsets?

    I don't know how it works at ISU, but I'm pretty sure at all other levels, teams bring their own headsets.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Coach Paul called me and ask to borrow my kids Walkee Talkee's. They cost 4 bucks at the dollar store but you can get as far away as the press box to the field and they work.

    Re: Any update on the headsets?

    Jon, saw that one time in a game, usually teams bring their own headgear. In this case, their headgear was not working and thus the home team cannot use headgear either. This prevents any "We didnt know it didnt work" theorys....

    Re: Any update on the headsets?

    I think that the rule states that if any team's headsets don't work then the other team also has to go without.

    As for the visiting team headsets, from what I understood the issue wasn't the headsets themselves, which the team brings, but the connection to the booth.

    Re: Any update on the headsets?

    Iowa would be smart to bring faulty headgear. Their offense is simple. Ours is not. Assuming ISU would have to refrain from using theirs.

    Jon did you make a pick this morning? I missed the show.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    How many times do we have to re-hash this. I highly doubt they were stealing the signal. We wouldn't have had the chances we did if they were. Iowa State lost because we couldn't execute squat inside the red zone.

    Didn't realize communication was the problem on Brodell's punt return. Or on Franklin's dropped TD. Or for the missed field goals. Or for the picks we threw.

    I thought ISU's wirless headsets didn't work in iowa city last year. May have been a different road game. Luckily they had the backups.
