Rasputin Unveils His Mississippi State Game Prediction. What's Yours?


In anticipation of tomorrow's battle against Mississippi State, 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, he has been a rabid Razorbacks football fan since the program's debut in 1894.

To conjure up his prediction for Saturday's game, Rasputin spent this week sitting in the lotus position atop Petit Jean Mountain. Here's his prediction:

"Ghost of the French girl, she haunts the cold mountain night. Tried to soothe her I did, but there was no relief in sight.

Soon, I stopped trying and listened to her desolate wail. The meaning was soon clear - Arkansas will prevail!

I bid adieu to the lonely little Jean, of a bigger and better bowl game I now shall dream.

The mighty warriors of Arkansas - 42, the mighty warriors of Mississippi State - 27"

Well, that's enough from Rasputin. Let's hear from you, both in the poll and in the comments thread.
