(Editor's Note: we apologize for the late posting, but Rasputin, like many of our staffers, was up until the wee hours last night watching the Cardinals' thrilling come-from-behind victory over the Rangers.]
In anticipation of tomorrow's battle against Vanderbilt, we asked Rasputin, our staff soothsayer and a seemingly ageless Russian immigrant, to offer his prediction for the game. After spending hours upon hours chanting, fasting and praying, Rasputin - who once lost a paternity suit filed against him by Nashville legend Minnie Pearl - offered the following prognostication:
"Halloween doth draw near and scary this game doth be,
It's frighteningly easy to imagine a Vandy victory.
Another sluggish start could very well seal our doom,
A loss to the Commodores would send me screaming to my room.
But tomorrow will be different, the tea leaves say to me.
Focused and determined, these pig-emblazoned warriors shall be.
The mighty warriors of Arkansas - 35,
the mighty warriors of Vanderbilt - 17."
Well, that's enough from Rasputin. Let's hear from you. Vote in the poll and pipe up in the comments thread.
