  • The fearless LSU All-American Honey Badger, also known as Tyrann Mathieu, is still trending after his team’s loss to Alabama Crimson Tide in the Bowl Championship Series. The game ended in a 21-0 win for the red wave. While this defeat is saddening for the LSU Tigers, it’s not a total loss. As contributor Roger Groves points out, the Honey Badger is prevailing in many ways. Groves wrote:

    “Most of America had never sipped the term until they were exposed to Mathieu’s scintillating punt returns, interceptions, and saliently, a honey colored Mohawk strip in his hair style. The phenomenonleft us collectively salivating for more. During several games, including the National Championship on college football’s biggest media stage, Mathieu was repeatedly called “The Honey Badger”. Needless to say, there are plenty of LSU licensed Honey Badger t-shirts, sweatshirts, and other beer belly cover ups from which LSU gains a royalty. That royalty, I suspect, does not trickle down in any significant way to the teenage star that generated the buzz – pun intended.”

  • Plenty of social media mentions are keeping the Honey Badger name alive, even if the Tigers’ bite is a little soft right now.
