Roberts Resigns, Southeastern Begins Search for New Head Football Coach

HAMMOND, La. – Southeastern Louisiana University will immediately begin a national search for a new head football coach, SLU Director of Athletics Jay Artigues announced on Friday.

Ron Roberts, who served as the Lions’ head coach for the past six seasons, has resigned and accepted the defensive coordinator position at UL Lafayette. Offensive coordinator Greg Stevens will serve as the interim head coach during the search process.

“We’re extremely thankful to Coach Roberts for his dedication in taking our football program to unprecedented heights,” Artigues said. “He’s been a tremendous asset to our university and is leaving our program in great shape. We plan on moving swiftly, but thoroughly, in our search for our next head football coach.”

Roberts led the Lions to a 6-5 overall record and a 6-3 Southland Conference mark in 2017. Southeastern posted a 42-29 mark during Roberts’ tenure, which included back-to-back Southland Conference championships and NCAA FCS playoff appearances in the 2013 and 2014 campaigns.

Stevens recently returned to Hammond after spending the past four seasons as the offensive coordinator at Eastern Illinois. He was Roberts’ offensive coordinator for his first two seasons in Hammond and his 2013 unit set school records for total offense, scoring offense and rushing offense.

Southeastern will open the 2018 season on Sept. 1 at UL Monroe. Spring practice opens on March 13.

FORMER TIGERS GAGE AND HERRON TO PLAY IN NFLPA COLLEGIATE BOWL ON SATURDAY

BATON ROUGE – A pair of former LSU standouts – Russell Gage and Frank Herron – will play one final college football game on Saturday as the duo will take part in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Kickoff for the contest is scheduled for 3 p.m. CT and the game will be televised on FS1. For the first time, the game will take place in the historic Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.

The seventh annual NFLPA Collegiate Bowl will feature 112 draft eligible players and is a week-long experience that provides players with an opportunity to showcase their talents to NFL scouts and coaches. Players are also exposed to the business side of the NFL during the week and are educated on what to expect when they make an NFL roster.

Both Gage and Herron will play for the National squad in the contest, which is coached by former Super Bowl champion head coach Mike Martz. Gage will wear No. 87 in the game, while Herron’s number is No. 97.

Gage capped his LSU career playing in 27 games with his most productive season coming as a senior in 2017 when he scored four TDs and accounted for 285 receiving yards on 21 receptions. For his career, Gage caught 26 passes for 347 yards and four TDs. He also rushed for 232 yards and a TD.

Herron was a mainstay on the LSU defensive line during his career, accounting for 67 tackles, 6.0 tackles for loss and a pair of sacks during his 33 games with the Tigers. Herron graduated in August of 2017 with a degree in interdisciplinary studies.

Gage and Herron mark the ninth and 10th former Tigers to play in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, which dates back to 2012. In 2014, former LSU fullback J.C. Copeland earned the game’s MVP Award.

HEART BREAK IN MINNESOTA

Well, y’all know the sad story by now. The Saints are done for the season with perhaps one of the most shocking, no horrifying ends in NFL history. The Saints didn’t play well in the first half and things looked dismal, but they came back in the second half and with only seconds left to play it looked like the Saints were on the way to Philadelphia. With only about 10 seconds on the clock, the Vikings had the ball but would need a miracle to pull this one off, and as unlikely as it seemed they got it! “Are you kidding me!” I yelled with some superlatives I cannot print……

The Vikings only needed a field goal to win but were out of time and out of range. The Vikings reportedly left the  huddle with QB Keenum’s words  “I’m going to give somebody a chance.” Everyone held their breaths as Vikings QB Case Keenum launched an Aaron Rogers style hail Mary to Stefon Diggs. Diggs  was double covered by Saints Marcus Williams and Ken Crawley, so things looked good for the Saints. Suddenly Williams made the critical error of lowering his shoulder to hit Diggs but missed, instead striking teammate Ken Crawley knocking both Williams and Crawley to the ground allowing Diggs to run in for the winning touchdown….. @&*$% Williams! I thought, and I know a lot of you are still placing the entire blame on him as evident by some of the reported Twitter posts he has received.  Well after reflection I say give the kid a break! The loss was not entirely his fault folks. He did get a pick earlier in the game, remember? And frankly if the Saints had played the same in the first half as they did in the second, the one missed play wouldn’t  have been  a game loosing issue.

Football fans are some of the most emotional in the world but there is no place for threats and trash talk. It is embarrassing and an insult to the sport. I think Williams simply made a rookie mistake and has a great carrier ahead of him as he matures and gains experience.  Even though he has crushed my predictions of a Saints Superbowl, lets give him a break and look forward to what I believe  will be a great season next time around. The Saints have a young group of players that have already begun to work as a team, so next season should be an exciting one.

This is football. It is unpredictable and exciting. If it wasn’t we might not be fans. Besides you have to admit it would be great  if the Vikings are able to make it all the way and play in their new stadium. This would also be the first time a host stadiums team would actually play in the Superbowl!!!! Kinda of cool right?

Post Script: It’s true. Green Bay’s QB Aaron Rogers is officially dating Danica Patrick……..
