Rasputin Unveils His Ole Miss Prediction. What's Yours?

predictions_crystal_ball_2

In anticipation of tomorrow's battle against Ole Miss, we asked Rasputin, our staff soothsayer and a seemingly ageless Russian immigrant, to offer his prediction for the game. Rasputin - who appeared on Richard Nixon's enemies list because of his 1971 spring fling with Gloria Steinem - has been a rabid Razorbacks football fan since the program's debut in 1894.

Not surprisingly, Rasputin took last week's defeat very hard and retreated to Petit Jean Mountain to heal his emotional wounds. He returned with this forecast:

"Alone I sat in the cold mountain night,
When the ghost of the lovely French girl appeared in my sight,
She grasped my hand and wiped away my tear,
And said of this Saturday, I do have reason to fear.

Monsieur Nutt will stake his team to an early lead,
My blood pressure will spike and my ulcer will bleed.

But when all seems lost, the Hogs will play well,
The defense will click and the offense it shall gel.

Victory over Houston, it will be here at last.
Then hopefully we will let go of the past.

I said 'adieu' to my lovely little Jean,
Of a strong finish to the season, of this I shall now dream.

The pig-emblazoned warriors of Arkansas - 34,
The most honorable and worthy opponents from Ole Miss - 31."

Well, we've heard from ole Raz. Now let's hear from you? As always, explain your vote in the comments thread.
