The Honey Badger doesn’t give a bleep. We already knew that.  Whatever the Honey Badger needs to do to get what he wants, he’s more than willing to do it.  Typically, Tyrann Mathieu is one of the most physical players on the field and accomplishes his goals that way.  However, he is also a known trash-talker.  With such an enormous amount of time to prepare for the BCS National Championship game, Mathieu has decided to do a little research so his smack talk can be on point when LSU takes on Alabama.

According to the Crimson White, the Honey Badger has been looking up mother’s names to prepare for the Crimson Tide wide receivers.

“You try to get the edge any way you got to,” Mathieu said. “When you are on the field you’re just having fun, you’re just talking. If you can get a player out of his zone, you win the battle.”

Mathieu’s plan has drawn a mixed reaction from the Alabama players.  On one end you have guys like defensive tackle Josh Chapman, who lets trash talk go in one ear and out the other.

“It don’t matter. if they find out my momma’s name, then so be it,” Chapman said. “Trash talk only really affects guys who don’t know how to handle it. I hope a lot of them know my momma’s name, because if they’re trying to do that much to find out your momma’s name then you’re doing too much besides learning about some football.”

However, Chapman won’t be on the field at the same time as Mathieu to hear him talking.  Alabama wide receiver Marquis Maze will be.  From the sound of it, just the thought of the Honey Badger talking about Maze’s momma gets under his skin.

“I really don’t care what he say, he don’t know my momma,” wide receiver Marquis Maze said. “Whatever he says, he just don’t need to say the wrong thing. (If he brings family members into it) then I won’t have any respect for him. I have respect for him, but if he says something about anyone in my family, I will have real problems with it.”

Maze is forgetting one important thing: the Honey Badger don’t care.
