LSU's Tyrann Mathieu is smart to use Alabama players' moms as trash talk ammo for Monday night's BCS National Championship Game.

According to the Crimson White, the one they call the Honey Badger has been researching the names of Crimson Tide players' mothers in attempt to deliver some very personal trash talk in the season's biggest game.

The early reactions from Alabama players has been that of disregard considering the Tide has much larger fish to fry than to worry about what No. 7 is shouting in its direction.

Alabama players understand what's at stake Monday night. Meanwhile, the undefeated SEC champion Tigers have every right to be cocky and distracted until someone beats them.

“I’m not trying to be arrogant about that, we are so good on defense, nobody wants to get in a shouting match with me and then line up on the other side of the field with [Morris Claiborne].” - Tyrann Mathieu

Mathieu will be arguably the best player on the field Monday night, and if he can add to the opposition's physical frustration with a little mental annoyance, LSU will be better for it. 

Mathieu has four return touchdowns this season, two interceptions and five forced fumbles. 

Alabama wide receiver Marquis Maze will be one player on the wrong end of the Honey Badgers' not-so-kind words. By the looks of it Maze is already anticipating a distraction in the rematch, saying:

I really don’t care what he say, he don’t know my momma, whatever he says, he just don’t need to say the wrong thing.

Maze's words only back up the claim that Mathieu's latest trash talk ammo is absolutely smart. Trash talking is within the rules and no doubt leads to personal foul penalties later in the game. 

Honey Badger is pulling out all the stops this season, and his game planning strategies alone will be worth the Heisman Trophy award in 2012.
