Bobby Hebert: I have forgotten more about football than Les Miles knows

If Bobby Hebert disappeared off the face of the earth, I highly doubt LSU coach Les Miles would shed a tear. Hebert is a die-hard Tigers fan but also one of the biggest Miles critics going, and he was back at it again during a recent interview with Les Carpenter of Yahoo! Sports.

Hebert is a former New Orleans Saints quarterback and has a son, T. Bob Hebert, who played for LSU last season. After the Tigers lost to Alabama in the BCS National Championship Game last year, Hebert went off on Miles during his postgame press conference for calling conservative plays when his team was trailing by multiple scores. Bobby stands by that criticism, to say the least.

“I know this and I actually believe this, and people say ‘Oh come on;’ but I know I’ve forgotten more football than Les Miles knows,” Hebert told Yahoo! Sports. “If you could bring me down and call plays and know what you’re doing. I would never make that statement about Sean Payton. Come on, I know. But I know when the defense is doing this and blitzing how are you going to attack it? What do you need to do?

“Like its 3rd-and-10 against Alabama, you’re going to run the option? Come on. You can get away with that against Washington. When you’re playing Alabama and you have 15 NFL players, well so do they. And you got to have some imagination.”

Earlier this season, Hebert was ejected from the press box for cheering LSU too loudly during their most recent loss to Alabama. At least you know his heart is in the right place. After bashing Miles for not knowing as much as him about the game, Hebert then seemed to take a full 180-degree turn.

“With the success that Les Miles has had he is probably in the history of football the most successful unloved coach I have ever seen,” he said. “To dominate and as much as he has had success [to] have people not think he walks on water? No, it’s unbelievable.”

So wait, does this guy love Miles or hate him? Chances are not even he knows the answer.

Bobby Hebert reportedly ejected from press box for loudly cheering for LSU

Saturday night’s game between Alabama and LSU was everything it was hyped up to be and more, as Nick Saban’s team further proved that they are the best team in the nation by pulling off a fourth quarter comeback on the road. The game had fans on the edge of their seats, but none more than radio host and notorious LSU supporter Bobby Hebert.

According to Jeff Duncan of The Times-Picayune, Hebert was ejected from the press box for cheering LSU too enthusiastically.

“An LSU spokesman said Hebert was warned repeatedly that his cheering was creating a disturbance,” Duncan wrote on Twitter Saturday night. “He was removed by security in the (fourth quarter).”

Those of us who are familiar with Hebert’s history are not even a tiny bit surprised by this news. The former Saints and Falcons quarterback is a huge LSU fan. His son, center T. Bob Hebert, played for the Tigers last season. He has a history of acting unprofessionally and not being able to remain objective, as evidenced by this epic rant he went on during Les Miles’ press conference after the BCS National Championship Game last season.

Those who sit in the press box are supposed to make an effort to remain neutral. Some cheering, moaning and groaning is to be expected, but I’m sure Hebert took it to the next level.

Bobby Hebert Ranted at Les Miles’ Postgame Press Conference Like an Angry Sports Talk Radio Caller

The sea was angry last night my friends. Like an old man trying to send soup back at a deli, Bobby Hebert’s rant towards Les Miles commanded the media’s attention.

First, we need a little background. Hebert is the former Saints and Falcons quarterback. He’s a current sports talk radio host in New Orleans, and his son, T. Bob Hebert, is the center on LSU’s team.

So not only is Hebert one of those shouting sports talk hosts, but he’s also a parent. Keep that in mind.

Bobby was the first person to address Les Miles in the coach’s postgame press conference, and rather than asking a question, he ranted like an angry sports talk radio caller.

Here’s what was said:
