In anticipation of tomorrow's battle against Georgia, we asked Rasputin, our staff soothsayer, to offer his prediction for the game. A seemingly hundreds-of-years-old Russian immigrant, Rasputin - who once served as the in-house tarot card reader for Apple Records and who also briefly played bass in the Dave Clark Five - has been a rabid Razorbacks football fan since the program's debut in 1894.
As you may recall, when Rasputin unveiled his forecast for the 2010 season earlier this month, he predicted a loss in Athens. However, while performing his usual array of soothsaying activities this week (quick aside: Raz, you really need to invest in a better odor-control system for those animal entrails), he began to reconsider. His prediction is after the jump:
said in a haunting whisper,
Oh dear fragile beauty, please telleth me more
She laughed and said only, 'You'll be pleased with the score!'
A moment's contemplation and the meaning was clear:
the Arkansas-Georgia game shall end differently this year!
Our warriors shall defend and kick better than I once thought:
The Hogs shall be victorious but not by a lot!
the worthy and most honorable opponents of Georgia - 28."
