LSU Honey Badger Video, App, Song Drinking Game

honey_badger

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 actual name? Does he just love the nickname? Was he trying to kill by alcohol poisoning the people playing the “Musburger says Honey Badger” drinking game?

Or has a generation of mindless acronyms instead of original nicknames (A-Rod, D-Will, I-Rod etc.) made us all go bucknuts when we hear an actual nickname for an athlete?

Watch two Honey Badger videos after the jump. Both narrators are men with extremely homosexual sounding voices by the way.

For more on the actual player, and the story of how he got his nickname go here

Beware LSU Honey Badger Tyrann Mathieu, Physically and Psychologically

tyrann-mathieu

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.

BCS Title Game #1 LSU vs. #2 Alabama: Brutally Honest Preview

2012-bcs-championship-game

You may wonder why this preview is going up 5 days in advance of the big heavyweight bout. We’re at the point where every bowl game except the big one, the one that really matters, has been played.  Yes, the Cotton Bowl between Arkansas and Kansas State should be a fun one to watch. Much closer to being a true BCS bowl than tonight’s Orange Bowl between the so-called “best teams” from the ACC and Big East.

When talking ACC and especially Big East football, “airquotes” are often required. The ACC is 2-12 all-time in BCS bowls and the Big East simply needs to be stripped of their AQ. There’s no other way- West Virginia this year and UConn last year tell us that BE football is simply not allowed to have nice things.

And yes, there’s a couple other bowls left I didn’t mention that that you haven’t heard of, featuring teams that NO ONE cares about and NO ONE will watch.

So if the Cotton Bowl is a dud…well, let’s just get to the rematch, and this one is for all the Mardi Gras beads.

#1 LSU Tigers vs. #2 Alabama Crimson Tide: BRUTALLY HONEST Game Preview

Simply put, if you’re not excited about this game, then you really are with the terrorists.

Maybe not, I think even the Al Qaeda cells in Jalalabad and Tora Bora will tune in for #1 LSU Tigers vs. #2 Alabama Crimson Tide. This is why college football has the best regular season in all of sports, you have an in-season de facto national title game.

Over 600 media credentials have been issued for this weekend, extremely high yes, but more than 800 were issued in 1993 at the Notre Dame vs. Florida State #1 vs. #2 game in South Bend. Irish head coach Lou Holtz invited all of them to his home for a BBQ dinner the Thursday before.

Will Nick Saban do the same?

#2 Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Tennessee Volunteers: Brutally Honest Game Preview

You can argue that any of these three teams (LSU Tigers, Oklahoma Sooners and Alabama Crimson Tide) are the true kings of college football. Each of them have a legit case to be #1. The Oklahoma State Cowboys, Wisconsin Badgers and Boise State Broncos belong in the discussion too. Don’t forget about the Stanford Cardinal either.

My choice in the preseason remains the same today- ‘Bama. They have the most pure talent of anyone, and that is an NFL defense they have. The Tide could probably do a much better job than the New England Patriots in opponents pass yards per game. You could just say I have a man-crush on this entire team.

If that’s possible. I think it is.
