In anticipation of tomorrow's battle against Florida, we consulted Rasputin, our staff soothsayer, to get his forecast for the game. A Russian immigrant who claims to be hundreds of years old and who sleeps every night in a chamber of pure oxygen, Rasputin has been a rabid Razorbacks football fan since the program's debut in 1894.
To predict tomorrow's game, Rasputin attempted to completely inhabit the mind of a Floridian, to understand how he might think and what he might be capable of on the field. Therefore, he cut his hair into a mullett and has spent much of the week cavorting around in jorts, downing 12-pack after 12-pack of Natural Light, blasting Molly Hatchet records and getting confused by butterfly ballots. Here's Rasputin:
"Intestine of goat in the witches' stew, here's my game prediction for you!
I foresee a tough afternoon for the Hogs and those who shower affection on them, particularly if mighty warrior Michael Smith's hamstring hasn't responded to the bleeding I recommended to the Arkansas training staff.
The Hogs will play with a mighty spirit and will enter the zone that marks the end of the field on occasion, but this is the No. 1 band of warriors in the country, one headed by mighty Tebow, the leader of the Blame Pagan Soothsayers First crowd.
I would love nothing more than to consume many, many cases of Russian vodka to celebrate a triumph by the pig emblazoned warriors, but it is not to be ...
The mighty warriors of Florida 31, Arkansas 17.
Well, that's enough from Rasputin. Let's hear from you, both in the poll and in the comments thread.
