Jim Harbaugh, 49ers Using the Honey Badger for Motivation (Video)
You didn’t think that LSU CB Tyrann Mathieu was the only honey badger in sports, did you? Turns out there are other teams playing off the viral video of the world’s most fearless animal.
Last month, Jim Harbaugh spliced some footage of the honey badger into highlights of the team’s season and it resonated with the players. Observe:
Harbaugh was recently asked about the characteristics the team shares with the honey badger.
“We showed it to them. I’m not sure what game it was. But, it resonated with them. Often, the guys will kid each other about that or kind of taken on some of the characteristics of the honey badger. Honey badger don’t care.”
Harbaugh better hope his team has a better showing in the postseason than LSU’s H. Badger. That guy was eaten alive by Bama like one of the cobras from the video.
