Jim Grobe called for punt from own 24, claimed headset died

The Baylor Bears pulled out a 35-24 win over the Oklahoma State Cowboys last night to move to 4-0 on the season. However, they nearly gave up their lead in the third quarter due to a headset malfunction.

The Bears were faced with a fourth and one from their own 24 and they were likely going to punt. However, the offense trotted back out on to the field and ended up turning the ball over on downs.

Head coach Jim Grobe claimed that he had actually called for a punt, but his headset actually went dead. This caused miscommunication and sent the offense back out on the field.

Baylor coach Jim Grobe said he was calling for a punt on fourth-and-1 inside his own 30 but his headset cut out.

Grobe joked with reporters after the game and said that he thought it best to “spot them on the 20” since his defense has their “backs against the wall” all season. The technology did not hurt the Bears, however, as they stopped the Cowboys on a fourth down and goal at the one.

The Bears ended up driving 99 yards to take the definitive 35-24 lead. Let’s hope the Bears’ headsets don’t die when they take to the road against the Iowa State Cyclones next weekend.
