Locks Break Ranks and Anger Sports Gods

by CollegeSportsView.com

It could have been worse.  While a 4-4-1 week doesn’t exactly qualify as a loser, it was how the record came about that has Gil Lock busting his bolts with anger.  “I’ve tried to explain to Jill that there are higher powers at work here and they must be respected.  At Ryno Rife Sports Handicappers, we’ve never gotten behind any of our picks financially because, as soon as we do, we know that the sports gods will get pissed and blow up every selection.”  “That was lost on Jill last Friday, as she decided to share some of our expertise with her little friend, Stephanie; one of her pole-dancing colleagues from her days in Vegas.  Worse, she gave out my picks!  So, while she was 2-1, I got smacked.” 

Tough luck, Gil. But if a split week is the price to pay for Jill’s education into the world of handicapping, it’s not so bad.  Let’s just hope she keeps her picks to herself this week. Click here to read more.. »

Locks Stretch Weekly Winning Streak To Three

by CollegeSportsView.com

Don’t know that anything beside the Buffalo Wings at Pipin’s Pub are hotter than our favorite College Football handicappers, the Lock family.  Patriarch Gil Lock, his wife, Jill and nephew Pad, continued their winning ways last week with a 5-3-1 week that raised the season record to 20-5-2 against the spread.  That tie was on Pad’s ledger, as USC coach Lane Kiffin inexplicably attempted a two point conversion that would have put the Trojans up 34-14 with 6:00 left vs. Minnesota.  “I couldn’t believe it”, wailed Pad. “As soon as it happened, I knew Minnesota would score a garbage TD and cost me the win.  Now I’m behind Uncle Gil, something he’s not going to let me forget.”

Tough luck for Pad but, if a little family competition keeps the Locks on their game, so much the better for the rest of us.  Here’s how they see Week 4. Click here to read more.. »

Locks Break From Gate With Unbeaten Week One

by CollegeSportsView.com

A year ago, with Gil Lock rumblin’, bumblin’, stumblin’ so much that his family came to his rescue, it couldn’t have happened. Any thought of an unbeaten week was pure fantasy. However, in 2010, it’s exactly how the Lock family, Gil, Jill and Pad, started the season. Now, while we don’t expect to see the same kind of success throughout the season, we here at CollegeSportsView.com are starting to expect much from Rino Rife Sports Handicappers as they seem to have their fingers on the pulse of college football. Here’s how they see the campaign’s second week. Click here to read more.. »

Locks Return for 2010 College Slate

CollegeSportsView.com

They’re back.  The Lock family, Gil, his wife Jill and nephew Pad, have agreed to return to CollegeSportsView.com for another stellar season of College Football prognostications.

When we last left the locks, Gil, of Ryno Rife Sports Handicappers, had spent most of the season sullying the family name.  It was for this reason that his wife, Jill, started to submit her own weekly selections, as Gil’s picks had become a source of embarrassment.  Good thing, too, as Jill was a winner two-thirds of the time.  Then, nephew Pad Lock got into the act, helping to bump up the record even further.  Perhaps inspired by their performance, even Gil started to come around by Bowl Season.

 So, here they are again, fresh off a 2009 campaign that returned an exceptional 55-45-1 record.  The season kicks off tonight and, true to form, the Locks are all over the Thursday night action. Good luck!! Click here to read more.. »
