HOT WULFF ACTION: Wulff and Headset

I have noticed that Paul Wulff does not wear his headset anymore.  I can’t remember when he stopped wearing it (after the MSU game?), but it has been on my mind the last few weeks.  I just think it looks weird not seeing him or seeing any head coach without a headset (besides JoePa).  The reason I am writing this is because of something I heard on the radio while driving home from work today.  I was listening to ESPN radio in southern California and they were talking about Joe Paterno.  They said it is obvious he has checked out and he doesn’t run the team any more.  They thought one obvious indicator is that he doesn’t wear a headset.  I have always wondered why Wulff wouldn’t want to hear the play calls or be able to communicate with his coaches better through the headset, it can be hard to communicate if it gets loud.  (Maybe, that's not a problem currently at Martin)  It would also help him decide if he thinks his coaches are doing the right thing, so when they watch game film he can remember what exactly was called and doesn't have to ask.  I thought about other coaches in the Pac10 and I couldn’t think of one that doesn’t wear a headset.  Below is a collection of the current Top 5 BCS coaches.  They all wear headsets.  I don’t know what this exactly means, but it makes me wonder.  I could draw several reasons or multiple scenarios on this, but I will leave the comments up to.  I guess I will throw out one idea.  Maybe it is because he really isn’t an offensive or defensive coach like most head coaches.  Most head coaches came from either the defensive or offensive side of the game.  I am not sure what Wulff’s emphasis is (or has been) besides that he played OL at WSU.

Hmmmmmm?  What is going on Wulff?

By the way I like Wulff and this isn't to slight him, I just am curious why the switch.  Maybe he can answer this for us in the future.  I also think he will make me look bad for writing this and wear his headset at Stanford.  He probably will because of crowd noise.
