Tyrann Mathieu talks a good game

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- LSU's Tyrann Mathieu is one of the best defensive players in the SEC, and he also has one of the best nicknames.

He's known as the "Honey Badger."

Mathieu also has very few peers when it comes to talking on the field. He talks the whole game and never quits talking.

Already, he's goaded Tennessee running back Tauren Poole into throwing the football at him after the play in this game, and Poole was the one whistled for the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.
