LSU's Mike VI turns tail

  LSU's Mike VI makes a meal of the Florida Gators' mascot Saturday.

LSU's tiger mascot has decided to turn tail on the rest of the 2015 season.

Mike VI has been a reluctant participant for some time, mainly because he's not real happy at the prospect of taking the mobile trailer from his home lair to Tiger Stadium. That wasn't always the case -- as Mike VI made every home game as recently as 2011.

However, the mascot missed the entire 2014 season and his only appearance this season was the home opener against McNeese State, which was canceled due to lightning.

The official announcement was placed on Mike VI's Facebook page Saturday morning.

 

If you want to see me on game day for the rest of the football season, come see me in my yard. I'll be there cheering on our Tigers!

Even though Mike VI won't be there in physical presence, he'll definitely still be there in spirit. And with LSU taking on the Florida Gators, he showed his school spirit by chomping down on a meal in the shape of the Gators' mascot.
