    Where did the Honey Badger name actually come from, where and how did it start? We all saw it slowly start getting used for a week or two then everyone was using it. TIA

    There was a honey badger video that the audio was redone by a guy named Randell.

    Then an LSU fan added video of TM and it caught on

    They did one for Russell Westbrook a year or so ago as well. Same video, same voice over, just had some RW stuff mixed in.

    Actually, that video was created after it was already popular.

    Coach Chavis started calling him honey badger in practice saying "There's my little honey badger." (This after the original honey badger video went viral.) Then the players started and T-Rex was lost to Honey Badger.
