Rasputin Unveils His Vandy Prediction. What's Yours?


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. Rasputin - who's mentioned several times in Keith Richards' new autobiography (apparently 60s babe Marianne Faithfull had quite the crush on ole 'Raz) - has been a rabid Razorback football fan since the program's debut in 1894.

His forecast is after the jump:

Black cat and a witch's brew,
Do I have Vandy game forecast for you!

On a weekend in which evil spirits run wild.
The Hogs will find the Vandy defense quite mild.

Points they will score and focus they shall bring,
Praise for the Hogs, we shall all soon sing!

The Commodores will be left to cry in their brandy,
While the rest of us happily munch Halloween candy!

The pig-emblazoned warriors of Arkansas - 42,
the most educated warriors of Vandy - 17.

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