Gil Lock Shown The Door At Thanksgiving Dinner
The turkey wasn’t the only casualty at the table this week when the Lock family sat down for their holiday meal. Jill and Pad decided that it was finally time to show the door to their beloved husband and uncle, Gil. Apparently taking their cue from the administration at Notre Dame, they decided to let Gil know a little of what Charlie Weis has been going through in South Bend. The clincher was his third consecutive 1-2 weekend that continued to drag down the family record; one that featured Jill’s perfect 4-0 a week ago. It wasn’t pleasant; Gil was in a cold sweat through most of the meal, but it was necessary. After all, 1-2 is not what the Locks expected.
Locks of the Week
Jill Locks (20-8)
Nevada-Boise State over 72.5-
North Carolina -5 over North Carolina State
– The Tar Heels may be playing better than anyone in the ACC right now as Butch Davis has his team clicking on all cylinders headed into the bowl season.
Clemson +2 1/2 over South Carolina
– I’m thinking Clemson is a dog because the games at South Carolina and they might be caught looking ahead to the ACC title game. However, the wheels have come off of the Gamecock’s wagon over the last month and they won’t have enough to stem Clemson’s momentum.
Pad Locks (6-4)
Arkansas State-North Texas over 53.5
– My weekly dose of “Arifemetic” as a tribute to my fallen uncle. Both teams stink and neither has a good defense.
Arizona -2 1/2 over Arizona State-
Arizona has got to be pretty pissed at blowing their shot at the Rose Bowl last week. They’ll take it out on an Arizona State squad that is clearly overmatched.
Texas Tech – 22 1/2 over Baylor
– Since losing QB Robert Griffin, Baylor has lost 6 of 7 and hasn’t even competed over the last two weeks; being outscored by Texas and Texas A&M by a combined 85-17. Things won’t be easier this week as Texas Tech looks to pad its Bowl resume.
