    Other than thinking of his family, I can't begin to imagine what the team of 17 to 20 year olds are going through losing their leader. Probably the first time any of these young men have had to deal with a death. And so many of them are away from home playing summer ball, keep those men in your thoughts and prayers as well...

    I'm shocked and saddened by this. A complete gut punch that seems so unfair.

    I only knew him from what I've read about him over the years, but I believe he would be the first to tell us that the world is not always fair and that we can overcome the cruelty of this world by moving forward and persevering until we are all together again. My sincerest condolences go out to the Robichaux family and may God bless them.

    The Lord just got himself a damn good baseball coach.

    Just saw this on a news feed, no words. His legacy will forever be on the university and the state of Louisiana. Very sad day.

    Years ago, I was trying to explain to someone who coach Robe was and during my explanation, I kept talking about how he focused on making the boys into men and how he can transform their lives from an empty shell to a completely fulfilled one by doing more for others by spreading the word of the lord. I didn't even mention anything about his baseball coaching abilities, that's just secondary. I can't think of one person who can be known so much for something completely different outside of what they do professionally.

    I'm at a loss for words. Coach was an ambassador for our school, our conference and the sport of baseball - and a great man who molded other fine young men.

    May he rest in peace and his loved ones take comfort in knowing he is in paradise.

    Searching for answers? I am. Punch in the gut is right.

    First of all, may his family find peace soon.

    I don't know if this will help anybody, but these words from Robe have been going through my head today. I think he would want us to remember him this way and these words in particular more than anything else.

    RIP Coach

    His one of his lasting legacies will be getting the Sunbelt to not play baseball on Easter Sunday. This speaks of his character and of his love of the Lord. Peace be with Coach Robe.

    Tragic. Sad. Gut wrenching. I hope his family can be uplifted somewhat by the prayers of the faithful.

    "Nowhere in the bible does it say how to be a great baseball player. But it's pretty clear what kind of man you should become." Coach Tony Robichaux

    Coach Robe is more than a coach, he has been the moral compass for the university for 25 years and a role model for both players, fans and our community. His players graduate and become outstanding men in our communities, fathers, husbands, brothers and yes men of God.

    We are only a couple of years apart in age, but Coach has been a mentor and a friend. The word "coach" can mean so many things to different people. A hundred years ago coach was a stagecoach. Think about it, is a coach much different today? He takes the team and puts it on his back and carries them on their journey.

    He ranks up with the greatest men I ever knew. Rest in peace coach, you always had time for a picture, you were the last one to leave the stadium and the clubhouse. You were more than a Coach to me, you were a friend & mentor. #RIPCoachRobe #GeauxCajuns I love you!

    "We teach our kids to use the game of baseball, not the game use them." Coach Tony Robichaux

    UL and Lafayette lost a great ambassador as well as a great man.

    Hopefully, the univ will do something that will honor his legacy forever


  19. People Robichaux Dies

    He was a molder of men, a deeply religious person who took more satisfaction in preparing college-aged kids for life — faith, fatherhood, fortitude — than he did in low ERAs and high batting averages.
