LSU Tigers mascot Mike VI has cancer, won't take field this season

 

BATON ROUGE, La. — Diagnosed with cancer, LSU’s live tiger mascot, Mike VI, won’t take the field during home football games this season but will remain in his habitat instead.

The university, in a news release Tuesday, said that in light of Mike’s recent terminal cancer diagnosis, no attempt will be made to load him into his trailer. Instead, officials say he’ll be let out into his outdoor habitat early on game day so Tigers fans can see and visit with him throughout the day.

“LSU understands that the tradition of having Mike on the field on game day is important; however, Mike’s health, safety and well-being are always our top priority,” the statement said.

In June, Mike received stereotactic radiotherapy treatment for spindle cell sarcoma — a lemon-sized swelling that had nearly closed one of his eyes — at the Mary Bird Perkins-Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Center in Baton Rouge.

LOOK: Wisconsin kicker honors late Nebraska punter with game-winning FG over LSU

 

Former Nebraska punter Sam Foltz, who died earlier this summer in a car accident, was honored in Wisconsin’s thrilling 16-14 win over LSU.
Rafael Gaglianone hit a go-ahead 47-yard field goal with 3:47 left in the game to give the Badgers a two-point lead while wearing Foltz’s No. 27. Gaglianone normally wears No. 10 but opted to change numbers to honor his fallen friend.

Foltz was killed during a July 24th car accident involving him, former Michigan State punter Mike Sadler and LSU kicker Colby Delahoussaye. Foltz and Sadler passed away, while Delahoussaye sustained minor injuries.
“Sam was just such a good guy,” Gaglianone said last month (via Madison.com). “To carry his number, to try and carry his legacy, just spread the word of who he was. I was blessed enough to know him for three years and know the kind of guy he was and the impact he made on me and really everybody he met. If you were talking to him, he made you feel like the most special guy in the world. Every time he would come into the room, he would just light up the room and everyone wanted to be around him.”
