Not only are students returning campus, but so too is the live mascot at LSU. And by all indications Mike VII is loving his new "home."

Seeing Mike play in the water and roll around in his habitat makes me happy. Remember, the university rescued this cub and now he's getting the best possible care any animal would want.

Reports out of LSU are that they will NOT remove Mike from his cage on game day. For years it was a tradition at LSU to have Mike show up in Tiger Stadium prior to football games, but that has been nixed by the school.

Welcome Home, Mike VII.
