We have sad news to pass along this afternoon...after a 4 month battle against cancer, LSU Mascot Mike the Tiger (VI) has passed away.

The announcement is not a shock, as the battle with cancer has been very public and well documented through the University. Various reports this week have even indicated Mike's declining health. 

LSU is in the process of looking for a new Mike the Tiger, and we'll have more on that when an announcement is made.

Rest in Power Mike.
