Tragedy Strikes the LSU family:

It is with great sadness that I must report that LSU's real bengal tiger mascot Mike the Tiger has passed away at 2:23am this morning. The cause of death is renal failure. Born in 1990, Mike was 17 years old. A press conference will be held at 2 p.m. today at the LSU Vet School. Mike V (he was our fifth bengal tiger mascot) will be sorely missed. He was beautiful and well cared for. I am going to miss you Mike. What a sad day for the LSU faithful.

Mike's Habitat:
Mike spent most of his days peering over at the great tradition of Tiger Stadium:


Before every home game, the LSU Cheerleaders paraded him around the stadium to thunderous applause. He would sit directly where the visiting team came out onto the field. They would always put a microphone on Mike and let him let out a big growl to kickoff the mad rabidness of LSU Football.
