Bobby Hebert escorted from press box of Bama-LSU game

Jarvis Landry, Deion Belue AP

Of course he was. Would you expect anything less from the guy who berated Les Miles in the post-BCS championship game press conference?

Local radio host Bobby Hebert had to be escorted out of the press box of Tiger Stadium in the fourth quarter of Saturday night’s game against Alabama for excessive cheering. Hebert, a former New Orleans Saints quarterback and local radio host, was apparently warned several times to settle down before LSU associate athletic director Herb Vincent had him removed.

There’s been no official word if Vincent replaced Hebert with Jarrett Lee.

Hebert’s son, T-Bob, was a lineman for LSU last season.

    Did Bobbie say a Boo Boo?

    Should have escorted Les Miles out!!

    Without any type of bad intent, I’m asking why is his son called T-Bob? I’ve noticed this about the south and I’ve tried to find an explanation on the internet but haven’t found one. Could somebody please inform me of this particular thing.

    Why is Bobby Hebert such a boob? Don’t go to the games if you don’t like what you see. Seems like a petty guy to me.

    He should sue the NFL now too. He obviously got hit in the head somewhere along the line.

    brewcrewfan54: It is not a Southern tradition but rather a Cajun one. T-Bob or T-Mike is short for “Petite Bob” or “Petite Mike” a nickname they received since they are named after their father and they received the “Petite” description, rather than Junior.

    Southernpat, thank you. I certainly appreciate the explanation.

  8. colinksu says: Nov 4, 2012 1:35 AM

    As a member of the sports media myself, you don’t cheer in the press box. What a boob.

    Typical LSU classless fan.

  10. ndrocks2 says: Nov 4, 2012 4:15 AM

    Give him a sobriety test and in turn you will have your answer. But I will say I’m surprised anyone can understand him to know he was cheering…

    brewcrewfan54: You are most welcome. All the neighbors who came to our home to watch the game to forget for a few hours the mess they are working int to get back into their homes after the flooding and wind damage of Hurricane Isaac are obviously suffering on “what could have been, what should have been”, etc. LSU did enough things–”high school type” penalties, bad calls by Coach Miles, dropped passes in the hands of receivers (3 I remember) and of course Alabama did enough things to win themselves without any help from LSU.

    ndrocks2: You are the very first I have heard with that explanation. Which makes all the sense in the world, especially knowing Bobby for years (Saints QB, broadcaster, etc.)…You’re last sentence is so funny, because it is truthful! HA. Please keep your sense of humor, we need that, especially now. Thank you.

    Most of the “talking heads” in my area, whom attend games, don’t sit in the pressbox and have purchased tickets so they CAN yell for their team. A rule is a rule.

  13. floridacock says: Nov 4, 2012 7:48 AM

    Guess Alabama’s dream did not go to die in Death Valley last night!!! Up yours Les!

  14. cometkazie says: Nov 4, 2012 8:21 AM

    Think of the prefix “T-” as “Little”, to distinguish him from his father or uncle.

    “Little Bobby”.

    I lived in the Baton Rouge area for forty some odd years and never heard it applied to a female., tho. Just about every Cajun has a nickname of some sort, some times very colorful.

    Hebert is an IDIOT

  16. kansacity88 says: Nov 4, 2012 9:39 AM

    @texasbornlsufan

    Don’t you mean an I-Bob???

  17. Deb says: Nov 4, 2012 12:04 PM

    Interesting info on the “T-Bob.” Had never heard any of that before. It’s much cooler than just saying “Little Bob” as they do in the rest of the South.

  18. brutusbuckeye2011 says: Nov 4, 2012 2:46 PM

    Substituting “T” for “little” would have helped a friend of mine named Richard when he was growing up. His father was called “Dick.” My friend was called “Dickey” until he was about 12 and then called “Dick.” When his voiced changed and friends would call on the phone his family thought it was hysterical to ask if the caller wanted to talk to “Big Dick” or “Little Dick.”

    Stop it! You’re killing me. That is just so WRONG :-).

  20. Deb says: Nov 4, 2012 4:51 PM

    @brutusbuckeye2011 …

    Hysterical! And true … I know one of those, too. This Little Dickey moved far away and became just plain Dick. But his wife hates it when they go back to his hometown for a visit LOL

  21. abrellbama says: Nov 4, 2012 5:08 PM

    Why didn’t they just call the son “Richard” or “Rich” ? It would seem less confusing.

    @brutusbuckeye2011
    That’s funny!!!

  23. roltyd says: Nov 4, 2012 7:57 PM

    I’m sure Bobby was dropping more than a few “F-bombs”.
    He’ll stroke out one day, with all that anger pent up.

  24. roltyd says: Nov 4, 2012 7:59 PM

    With that said, glad he wasn’t in there at the end of the game, or he’d have do e it then!

  25. Deb says: Nov 4, 2012 9:09 PM

    @abrellbama …

    This is the South. Why would you call Dick Jr. “Richard” when you could call him “Little Dick”? Come on, now. Don’t you remember that episode of Andy Griffith where Andy had to explain to Opie about Plain Claude Beamon, who was so called because he didn’t have a “Jr.” or “Sr.” on his name? They could have just called him Claude … but no … he was “Plain Claude.” :D

  26. cometkazie says: Nov 4, 2012 9:28 PM

    But Deb, there is always Little Richard.

    He is from Georgia, I think.

  27. mstiger1 says: Nov 4, 2012 10:54 PM

    rsmeans, do you need a little counseling? You seem to have a lot of anger built up. Does LSU kill your team every year and you just can’t stand it. You aren’t a Moo U fan are you? Ha.

  28. fragbonz says: Nov 5, 2012 11:36 AM

    Parents should be thoughtful about what they name their children. A customer of mine was named Richard Head. You got it. Translated “Dick Head.” Fragbonz

    I think Alabama gave the “Big Dick” to the “Little Dick” the other night.

    @cometkazie …

    True, true. He didn’t have to be a Dick at all :)
