Yeah orders that actually we went on a triumph in the 2011. It continues to come article you mentally plug along and -- -- -- not a one it has might. Well maybe -- and still some com. Sexist and then you know the industry -- if there is some over the light up and it's good. Know what I was -- actually. I was -- at that to drop the price is a little bit because a lot of people want to anchor it is and I can save a little more money to take another Curtis. Well yeah. But at least. Outline all -- I can walk again. I'm literally what I'd walked out from where I'm sitting right now about -- That you will. -- weekend and were taken -- actors. -- probably well. Which June 2601878. Bowl 386688970. Everything you've seen with the triumph will that affect your decision whether or not take -- -- well. The weather this weekend you might -- takers -- get -- warmer temperatures. Mostly sunny skies this Friday with a high of 66 this afternoon and tonight. Lows dropping into the upper thirties to low forties mostly cloudy skies since Saturday at 20% chance early for a shower and look for highs mid fifty's feeling -- all day and Sunday mostly sunny and a high of 61. But the Eyewitness News forecast center I'm meteorologist lop off. Tell this the warmest of the three days of the weekend -- 42 right now the international airport calm winds relative humidity is 89% of partly cloudy and slide out. Man on the North Shore. Is in the lower to mid -- it's 36 at the National Weather Service office in Slidell 34. In -- elusive but not much of -- wind so could definitely be some frost. -- Well it's all star break for the hornets and it's. Now first pitch for the LSU tigers and today we find out if the reports are correct -- who will be the next offensive coordinator for the reality tiger football team. -- -- talk about luckily we have Steve -- and help us -- good morning there. Good morning David yeah LSU set to introduce Cam Cameron as their new offensive coordinator today. WWL college football analyst Mike to tell -- -- likes the higher fuel that -- met burger will benefit from a the most. Do what you gotta think about Cam Cameron made history mile belt that you didn't -- commercial -- -- troops were you doing with Joseph Flacco got a pretty doggone good job developing quarter. You can catch the press conference live on WW well -- let him. All the saints announce that the club has re site's safety roughly a bush tight end Michael Higgins and guard Eric Olsen. All three players were reserve's last season both bush and Olson did see substantial playing time. Fight tiger baseball season begins tonight in Alex box stadium as LSU starts with a three game series vs Merrill it. Could pulmonary says the thrill of opening date never gets old. The court thirty -- here this is my 31 opening day and I think it's a little bit. Butterflies and excitement and anxiety waiting for the start of the season. Tulane baseball begins their season on the road for the first time since 2006. As the waiver in San Marcos to participate in the Texas State tournament. They're -- square off against Sam Houston State in game one today. And LSU basketball took down South Carolina 64. To 46. That's an exercise restraint here. -- particulate download -- Johnny O'Bryant started my -- back to the build walls to try to force something does jump -- good. Johnny O'Bryant is dominating once they get it -- it inside. Sophomore O'Brien he -- did for a career high thirty points. Today I have four on sports talk youth football numbers -- down across the country because of head injury concerns would you let your someplace ball. I'm Steve Geller with your early morning look at sports. He's and then fire -- and get rid of them as the offensive coordinator over -- they're just gonna shift him to maybe the offensive line coach or something like that. Brian yeah I guess the focus more on the offensive line kinda close similar situation with what happened with the saints is -- just because of all the suspensions but. Now that was his job to begin with and now he gets the shift back to that and focus on the line. Which which is fantastic as they need help they had their offense last year with eighty something in and college football not very productive so. You like the idea of bringing in a new offensive coordinator in what -- think about Cam Cameron other than at the essentially same First Amendment and Cameron. Well as -- to -- you -- a cut I love the idea of this because he's developed quarterback like Drew Brees Joseph Flacco and Philip Rivers. Exact met burger we've we definitely saw you once struggled a bit. And this can only help him in the future because he's got we got the skills that he just needs -- gates gave a little bit of confidence and swagger in the pocket. And when those pressure -- to -- situations come. Be able to keep his head straight and make the right decision instead of forcing the ball in there as -- that the world champion ravens. Exactly and Joseph Flacco was shocked when the ravens let him go in was really upset about it he credits him with his his complete development. His career tiger fans have them to be excited absolutely. Offensive he better just because of this -- we'll hear all about it at 11 o'clock this morning -- WW well earlier and Steve -- again.
