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


In anticipation of tomorrow's battle against Mississippi State, we asked Rasputin, our staff soothsayer and a seemingly ageless Russian immigrant, to offer his prediction for the game. Rasputin - who claims he had some mean pillow fights with Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas back in the day - has been a rabid Razorback football fan since the program's debut in 1894.

His forecast is after the jump:

"Oh, this journey into Starkville - it doth worry me so,
My dreams of a good bowl game, down the drain they must not go!

My anxiety starts to rise and a loss I do fear,
But then visions of darling Alice do soon appear.

She says, 'Relax, 'ole Raz - things will turn out right
The Hogs will claim victory late in the Mississippi night.'

I dance a strange jig, one fueled by pure glee,
There's nothing quite like a nail-biting victory!

The pig-emblazoned warriors of Arkansas - 30,
The mighty and most honorable warriors of Mississippi State - 27."

Well, we've heard from Raz. Now let's hear from you - vote in the poll and pipe up in the comments thread!
