In anticipation of tomorrow's battle against South Carolina, 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.
After days of chanting, praying, consuming peyote, examining animal entrails and gorging himself on leftover Halloween candy, Rasputin uncorked the following prognostication:
"And so my fellow followers of the Hogs, we findeth ourselves in the home stretch of the 2009 season. Much exhilaration, much heartache have we experienced. After it all, though, our pig-emblazoned warriors find themselves with a good shot of attaining the most unimaginable glory: a trip to the Independence or the Liberty Bowl, or maybe even the Cotton or Chick-fil-A bowls. Oh, what a season of revelry would ensue!
The Hogs can place themselves one step closer to such a feat by winning tomorrow. And win they will, taking advantage of injuries to several of the spirited gents of South Carolina.
The mighty warriors of Arkansas 31, the mighty warriors of South Carolina 24.
Well, that's enough from Rasputin. Let's hear from you, both in the poll and in the comments thread.
Who will win Saturday's game?
