Bobby Hebert was none too pleased with LSU coach Les Miles Monday night.You may recall Hebert as a colorful athlete during his stint as New Orleans Saints quarterback. Now he is a colorful host for WWL-AM sports talk radio shows.His passion for LSU football is intensified by the fact his son, the classically named T-Bob Hebert, is a Tigers offensive lineman.So Bobby was vexed by the dreadful play of LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson and perturbed that back-up Jarrett Lee never got a chance in the 21-0 loss to Alabama in the BCS Championship game.
The elder Hebert went off on Miles during the post-game news conference, as noted in the official transcript:“Coach, did you ever consider bringing in Jarrett Lee, considering that you weren’t taking any chances on the field?

Nick Saban's boys, Alabama, and Les Miles' boys, LSU, will play on Monday for the BCS championship in a much-anticipated rematch of the overtime slugfest held in Tuscaloosa. The game will be broadcast at 8:30 p.m. ET on ESPN. Monday.
Defense may win championships, but NOT TV ratings.
Alabama's national championship win drew the lowest television ratings in the BCS' 14-year history.
An overnight rating of 13.8.
That was a dip from the previous all-time low, a 14.3 rating set in 2002 by Miami and Nebraska.
Now can we finally get our playoff system or a +1 or something? PLEASE BCS PLEASE?
Finally, after days and days of talk about absolutely nothing new, the game that will explode minds and possibly actual heads is upon us. And, as is customary with nearly every game, but always the big games, everyone and their brother are throwing out a score prediction, which means you'll be hearing from the one lucky bastard who manages to nail it exactly (he or she should...
