Last season Tyrann Mathieu, affectionately known as the Honey Badger, was an instant sensation as LSU won the SEC and made it to the BCS title game. He forced six fumbles, intercepted two passes and averaged 15.6 yards per punt return (scoring four touchdowns), and became the first defensive player since 1994 to be named a Heisman finalist. Mathieu was suspended for the 2012 season for multiple failed drug tests. Here are some of the highlights from his dynamic 2011 season.
