Somebody said on GI that they heard someone call him this. I don't know what the rest of you think but I really like it! Honey Gopher don't care!
SpiderMan was tossed around by media guys following the game. I like that better.
I kind of like Spiderman because Spiderman is about the smallest super hero there is. Mathieu is also very good at placing the ball when he feeds his teammates. It's almost like the ball is on a string (or web). He is also extremely athletic and able to go up and over people at times.
Honey Gopher is alright, but I honestly don't think the average fan would realize it is reference to the other Mathieu. Also, I'd rather not adopt any sort of nickname that has anything to do with a Badger.
Not really, it seems like we want to be like the Badgers more than anything.
Except the Honey Badger has nothing to do with the Wisconsin Badgers. If anyone thought that, part of the joke would be on them. I think your post would make sense if Tyronn Matheu played for the Badgers.
That is a pretty good comparison. Players like Mathieu and Jackson are frustrating to go up against.
