In anticipation of tomorrow's battle against Texas-El Paso, we asked Rasputin, our staff soothsayer and a seemingly ageless Russian immigrant, to offer his prediction for the game. Rasputin - who is said to have pitched the "My Mother the Car" TV series to NBC - has been a rabid Razorback football fan since the program's debut in 1894.
His forecast is after the jump:
"With the autumn moon lighting my way,
I doth seek escape from the nerve-wracking day.
In the mountainous countryside, I wipe away a tear,
and revel in the visions that soon doth appear.
Many points and many touchdowns - of these I do see,
Victorious by a wide margin, my beloved Hogs will be.
As I look up at the beautiful night sky,
I think, "How quickly this season has gone by!"
The end is suddenly, shockingly at hand,
And the Hogs, maybe they're not the best in the land.
But a strong and spirited finish - that is within their reach,
Make it so, make it so - of the Hogs, this I do beseech.
The pig-emblazoned warriors of Arkansas - 41,
the most honorable and spirited warriors of Texas-El Paso - 17."
