This reminds me of a story about Wendell Mosley, an OU assistant in the early 70's.  He thought headphones made him look important on the sidelines, so he wore them.  The only thing was, they weren't plugged in to anything.

I'm glad they came up with this. I was getting so worried about the over-use of headsets. I mean, for real, 23 or 24 is just too much! :rolleyes:

Well, this is a really important rule.  Those headsets cost lots of money.  With every headset a team has on the field just means they have to hire a body with a head for each headset.  Those bodies with heads are really expensive.

No, it wasn't Mosley. It was Bill Michael. He resigned over it.

I remember Switzer talking about this. He said Mosley told him he wanted to impress the woman he was dating, and thought the headphones made him look important. Switzer called him "dead set Mosley". Great stuff. :D

Switzers book was hilarious at times. Bootleggers Boy! I remember reading that Mosely always got a ticket for his wife, and one for his girlfriend until a staffer put them together! OMG! Classic Switzer stuff!

Only if they use them, Walt. Otherwise, they are just hatracks.

Well, you'd think so, but . . .

Anyone remember Galen Hall with his rabbit ears headphones? There were actual old school TV style antennas on the headphones.
