You didn’t think that LSU CB Tyrann Mathieu was the only honey badger in sports, did you? Turns out there are other teams playing off the viral video of the world’s most fearless animal.
Last month, Jim Harbaugh spliced some footage of the honey badger into highlights of the team’s season and it resonated with the players. Observe:
Harbaugh was recently asked about the characteristics the team shares with the honey badger.
“We showed it to them. I’m not sure what game it was. But, it resonated with them. Often, the guys will kid each other about that or kind of taken on some of the characteristics of the honey badger. Honey badger don’t care.”
Harbaugh better hope his team has a better showing in the postseason than LSU’s H. Badger. That guy was eaten alive by Bama like one of the cobras from the video.

Funny thing about tonight’s college football national title game, the biggest star on one side, LSU, their Heisman Trophy finalist is actually a cornerback: Tyrann Mathieu.
Another funny thing about the game, he’s trying to get a psychological edge by looking up the names of mothers of Alabama football players for some trash talking on the field.

Watching the college football national title game Monday night, you might have noticed that Brent Musburger referred to LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu as “the Honey Badger” as much as possible.
And when I say “you might have noticed” I actually mean it was painfully obvious to anyone who watched even a nanosecond of the game. Was he trying to be hip? Did he not know the player’s...
Tyrann Mathieu's preparation for Monday night's BCS National Championship has been a little unconventional. In addition to sharpening his on-field skills and watching film of Alabama, he's also spent a little time looking up the names of the mothers of Alabama players.
And he plans to use them in abundance.
Mathieu, aka the Honey Badger, is not only one of the biggest...
Brent Musburger was oddly enamored with LSU safety Tyrann Mathieu's nom de guerre, uttering it a mystifying 14 times during tonight's broadcast of the BCS title game on ESPN. (He had the over.)

Besides the likes of Harvey Updyke, Paul Finebaum, and pretty much the entire upwardly mobile populations of Louisiana and Alabama, there is a 7 foot tall Honey Badger in a Tyrann Mathieu jersey roaming the streets and watering holes of New Orleans right now. LSU has clearly come to play.

Alabama certainly played the better overall football early in the game. On special teams they did something that few teams have done much of all season against LSU.
On that punt return alone, LSU allowed EIGHT TIMES the...
