White smoke was seen wafting from LSU's Memorial Tower over the weekend.
Mike VI has been selected, according to several reports out of Baton Rouge (here and here.) The new mascot, reportedly a two-year-old, will replace Mike V who died in May.
The new tiger will arrive on campus sometime next month, and after two weeks of successful adjustment, he will officially be named Mike VI. No word on whether he will be ready to make his first public appearance at LSU's Sept. 8 home football opener against Virginia Tech.
