Rasputin Unveils His Texas A&M Game Prediction. What's Yours?

predictions_crystal_ball_2

In anticipation of tomorrow evening's battle against Texas A&M, 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.

Unfortunately for Hog fans, Rasputin has been 100 percent accurate in his game forecasts so far. And that's unfortunate for him as well - nobody takes a Razorback defeat harder than Rasputin. On the flip side, no one is more crazed with excitement after an Arkansas win. In light of his forecast below - developed after days of burning laurel branches, reading tarot cards and examining bear claws - we expect 'ole Ras to be one giddy dude come late Saturday night. Here's his prediction:

"Branch of laurel in the witches' stew, do I have a game prediction for you!

As it was against the warriors of Georgia, both teams will frequently enter the zones that mark the end of the field. As it wasn't against the warriors of Georgia, the warriors of Arkansas will be declared the victors.

Warrior Michael Smith and his fellow fighting men in the backfield will finally accumulate significant yards by running on the ground. The warriors of the Hog defense will try very hard and improvement they will show. Do not get carried away, those who shower affection on the Hogs: the improvement will be just enough to win this game. Much trouble still ahead for those Hogs charged with defending the zone that marks the end of the field.

To this I will add that I foresee that much fermented grain will be consumed by Hog fans as they travel through the the Dallas night in the hours after the game.

The mighty warriors of Arkansas - 41, the mighty warriors of A&M - 34."

Well, that's enough from Rasputin. Let's hear from you:
