Rasputin Unveils His Tennessee Prediction. What's Yours?

predictions_crystal_ball_2

In anticipation of tomorrow's battle against Tennessee, we asked Rasputin, our staff soothsayer and a seemingly ageless Russian immigrant, to offer his prediction for the game. An exceedingly emotional and volatile man, Rasputin did not eat for 13 weeks after Clint Stoerner's fumble in 1998 and slept a total of only 23 minutes during that same period. Here's hoping this weekend's game does not have the same effect on him. His forecast is after the jump:

"Oh that dreadful orange, what complicated memories I have of thee,
From heartbreak in 
'98 to '92's stunning victory.

The joy of 
'06 and the pain of '02,
This series leaves me spinning-does it do the same for you?

There will be no pain tomorrow-yes, this I do believe.
Many points and many yards, these surging Hogs will achieve.

Impish old 
Francis, in my dream he doth appear,
He said, 'Tomorrow will be full of frivolity and rampant good cheer.'

Dearest old Francis, of him I never doubt,
I plan to toast a victory with a vodka most robust and stout.

The mighty warriors of Arkansas - 44,
the mighty warriors of Tennessee - 20."

Well, we've heard enough from Rasputin. Now, let's hear from you. Vote in the poll, and pipe up in the comments thread.
