Bobby Hebert, former Saints quarterback and father of LSU lineman T-Bob, called out Les Miles and the lack of downfield passing attack against the Crimson Tide. Hebert is a radio personality as well. It should be noted that T-Bob lost his starting position later in the season; so, there could be some built up anger or resentment towards Miles from the Hebert family.

Here’s the video:

Here’s the transcript from ASAP Sports:

HEBERT: Coach, did you ever consider bringing in Jarrett Lee, considering that you weren’t taking any chances on the field? Now, I know Alabama’s defense is dominant. But, come on, that’s ridiculous, five first downs. I mean, so it’s almost an approach, I’ll tell from you the fans’ standpoint, that how can you not maybe push the ball down the field and bring in Jarrett Lee? So what if you get a pick six. It seems like the game plan that.. not pushing the ball down the field, considering it’s like a Rueben Randle or Odell Beckham, Jr. I know the pass rush of Alabama, but there’s no reason why in five first downs.. you have a great defense, LSU is a great defense, but that’s ridiculous.

MODERATOR: Do you have a question?

HEBERT: That’s the question. Do you think you should have pushed the football more down field?

MILES: I think if you watch our calls that we did throw the football down the field. We didn’t necessarily get the football down the field. And I can tell you that the pass rush.. we did consider Jarrett Lee. But we felt like with the pass rush that we were getting that we needed a guy that could move the seat and not sustain that pass rush.

After the question, the presser room is said to have fallen very quiet and everyone was filled with shock over the question.

I don’t have a problem with the question, but the delivery of the question was almost attacking Miles. What do you think – fair question or unfair attack?

  • I think it was a fair question, poorly phrased or not. It made no sense not to at least try something different towards the end of the game. Jefferson ended up throwing an interception, surely a few sacks of Lee wouldn’t have been any worse.

    Stale offense and an unwillingness to change are some of the reasons UGA doesn’t win championships, didn’t think I’d see it out of Les Miles.

  • Bobby was mad indeed. But he did take my Saints to their first playoff appearances, so he’s allowed.

  • It’s just really frustrating to us as fans to see our team come into that game as unprepared as we were. And furthermore, not be able to see that the game plan you so poorly set up isn’t working and attempt to adjust. I mean, take nothing away from Alabama, they came in ready and played almost perfect football. I dont know if we could have beat them at all. But I feel like we went to new Orleans completely unprepared. We were out coached and over matched.

  • Guys, it wouldn’t have mattered what Miles did. Alabama was just too tough. We had that game, LSU wouldn’t have been able to move the ball, no matter the QB. And what about your THUG, the Honey Badger? Could not play, could not run his mouth, etc. The fact that the Heisman brought him to NYC was disgraceful!!!! He’s a nothing that failed a drug screening, he should be in jail, along with THUG Jefferson! You break the law, you go to jail, you don’t play NCAA football! If they were playing for Saban, they would have been off the team, that’s a FACT!

    • Dude u got to get over the honey badger. No team is perfect. He was disciplined and saban wouldn’t have given him much more than miles did. And Jefferson was accused and if you’ll look at the facts and not listen to what everyone is saying, you will find little to no evidence toward him doing much more than breaking curfew with about 2 dozen other players that night. I’ll bet you don’t think any of the pot head Alabama players are thugs who should be thrown in jail huh?

  • “I just heard this from a friend with ties to the LSU athletic department. I am not sure if it is true or not but a lot of the pieces fit. Apparently about 3 hours before the game T-Bob Hebert and Russell Shepard and 2 other receivers and a hand full of linemen got into a heated argument with Les Miles and the Offensive Coordinator about Lee getting more playing time and possibl…y starting the BCS Championship game. It got so heated that Miles benched T-Bob and RS and 3 other players. He called Lee into his office and told Lee that he would not be playing in the game. The Offensive CO told Miles that he thought that Lee gave the team the best chance to win the game. Miles told the OC to start looking for a new job after the game and Miles will be calling the plays for the championship game. Apparently the O Line sided with T-Bob and Lee and did not give their all in the game to prove to Miles that the players are more important then the coach. Now I know that this is hard to believe but when you look at some things it kind of explains a few things: I will list some:
    Playcalling: Read option pass on 3rd and 10 – 4 times. Running the same 5 plays over 90% of the game. Overall, Horrible play calling. Running the ball in the 4th quarter with 9mins and down by 21. T-Bob Hebert not taking a snap in the game. RS only playing 3 snaps and not touching the ball or getting looked at. Lee getting off the bus and walking 10 feet behind the team with his head down and looking dejected while walking into the Dome. Heated argument between receivers and JJ and O Line with O line coach on sidelines. And the kicker, reports that 2/3 rds. of the plays that were practiced up to the game were not ran and the players were not told why. Again I do not know if this is entirely true but there seems to be a lot of truth in it just by seeing what happened in the game”
