BATON ROUGE, La. – At a key juncture in the fourth quarter of the LSU-Alabama game Saturday night, former New Orleans Saints quarterback and current radio talk-show host Bobby Hebert was escorted out of the Tiger Stadium press box for excessive cheering.
Hebert and Alabama make for a combustible mix. He famously berated LSU coach Les Miles in the postgame press conference after LSU's 21-0 loss to the Crimson Tide last January in the BCS Championship Game.
On Saturday night, Hebert was warned repeatedly about violating working press box decorum and cheering for the Tigers. Finally, LSU associate athletic director Herb Vincent informed Hebert that he had to leave the press box, and a uniformed police officer escorted him out.
On the next play, LSU scored the go-ahead touchdown.
Hebert's son, T-Bob, played on last year's LSU team. He's the least objective of journalists, but is a popular personality in his home state of Louisiana.
