Things have definitely changed in 50 years
Was thinking about LSU putting Mike the Tiger in the old Trailer cage and driving him around the inside of the stadium during pre-game.

quote:

The Tiger mascot stopped traveling with the LSU team in 1970 when his cage overturned on Airline Highway in an accident enroute to a game.

Mike IV traveled on multiple occasions, as he appeared at a Mardi Gras parade in 1984, the 1985 Sugar Bowl and two LSU’s basketball games in the Louisiana Superdome. Mike V made his first road trip in December 1991 to the Louisiana Superdome to witness the LSU men’s basketball team with Shaquille O’Neal defeat Texas, 84-83.



I found these pictures on the internet.



Pic of Mike Archer and Mike the Tiger at the Mardi Gras Parade in 1984.


So apparently LSU borrowed a baby Tiger from the Miami Zoo for the 1971 Orange Bowl Parade and allowed a coed to "hold that tiger" for the Car Ride


and they took it to the game to meet the team

where it decided to attack the LSU Mascot

Cool. Never saw that one.
Big Mike had some evil eyes back then.

I am thinking about my man driving that car with a stoned 20year old coed holding a 50lb Tiger Cub right behind him and it makes me think of this

Chalk up another victory for the libtard Army. Anything remotely fun is brought out onto E. Boyd and put out o pasture. No reason we can’t put Mike in a luxury 18 wheeler with plexiglass and parade him around the field

Is that Mike Archer riding in the back of that pickup in Picture 2?

ETA: O.K. just saw the caption.

Making the head coach ride in the back of a pickup, wtf.

Things HAVE changed in the last 50 years! 50 years ago some LIBTARD decided it might be time to finally let a black football player carry the pigskin! The rest is history!

Dr. David Baker's charge is to act in Mike's best interest.

Not the Athletic Dept.
Not the fans.
Not protesters.

He's doing his job. Extremely well.

Things have definitely changed in 50 years...

Not everything has changed in 50 years…Ole Miss still has the same number of SEC titles.

People got soft. It’s really depressing.

Also like the previous poster said, just don’t shoot fireworks with the tiger in the stadium. Problem solved.

Well, if that picture was truly taken in 1984, then he wasn't the head coach. Archer wasn't the head coach until 1987.

It’s a fricking shame and the destruction of one of the greatest traditions in college football that he’s not on the sidelines at the beginning of the game

Everything woke turns to shite.

Should have told peta snd the activists types to frick off.

if you look close everybody in that section is wearing pajamas. Freshmen had to wear them to the first football game, and that was the mildest thing that was done to them. Freshmen had the shite hazed out of them, and not just the ones in fraternities.

As far as Mike ever going to games again, vent if it makes y'all feel better, but that ship has sailed and it's not coming back. We're very fortunate to have a live mascot at all, and the only way we're going to keep him is by not doing things like pulling him around in a trailer at games.
