Ahead of the Point Spread: Rife with Opinions -Week 6

October 7, 2010 under Uncategorized

“It Just Doesn’t Matter”

by CollegeSportsView.com

Had a riotous conversation the other day with our good friend, Gil Lock, of Ryno Rife Sports Handicappers. Turns out that, not only did Gil turn in a perfect 3-0 for CollegeSportsview.com last weekend, but he liked five other games, as well, each of which was also a winner.  However, Gil’s perfect Saturday wasn’t enough to help a hapless old friend who just won’t listen.  I’ll let Gil take it from here.

“I have a good friend; much older than I am, who I met way back when I was a teenager.  I was a counselor in training (CIT) at North Star summer camp somewhere in northern New England.  Tripper was one of the counselors there; the kind of guy all the kids liked.  I can’t remember what he did in the winter; I think he drove a beer truck.”  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.. »

Ahead of the Point Spread: Rife With Opinions- Week 6

October 15, 2009 under College Football

Not a bad week for the Locks, as both Jill and Gil posted 2-1 records while regaining aryno rife level of harmony that had been missing since Gil shamed the family with an ohfer a few weeks back.  Jill had expected that this would be her last week but, with her stellar 7-2 record since jumping into the fray, CollegeSportsView readers demanded that she continue.  Who knows?  If she keeps it up, maybe she’ll replace Gil at Ryno Rife Handicapping.

LOCKS of the WEEK

Jill’s Picks

Minnesota +16 over Penn State

Why is Penn State so highly rated every year?  Are the voters just nice to the coach because he’s been at Penn State longer than the smell of the cow chips?  Whatever the reason, there’s no way they should be favored by this much. Their record is 1-1 vs. college teams and 4-0 vs. high school teams.  Last week they crushed Eastern Illinois of the powerful Ohio Valley Conference.  Eastern Illinois?  In Week 7?  Gimme a break. Paterno’s boys are a fraud, as is the big spread.  Go with the Gophers.

East Carolina – 18 over Rice

Rice is 0-6 and has given up an average of 47 points in three road games.  East Carolina has fared well against tough opponents and Gil has a buddy that says all ECU girls are hot.  Sure.  It’s always a buddy.   He may find himself duct taped to a telephone pole for that one.

Fresno State -19  1/2 over San Jose State-

The pick is Fresno because they play a lot on TV and I like the coach, Pat Hill.   He’s a tough guy who’s not afraid to play good schools,(note to JoePa), and his team always plays hard. They’re home for the first time in a few weeks, Ryan Matthews is one of the best backs in the nation and San Jose State stinks.  Oh, and their bulldog mascot reminds me of our dog, Neckbolts.

Gil’s Picks

Idaho – 9 over Hawaii

I actually had Idaho in a huge win a few weeks ago but my picks never made it into print.  The Vandals have been playing well and, as Jill pointed out last week, Hawaii really stinks.  Even when they’re good, they struggle on the mainland.  I like Idaho by three TD’s.

Arkansas + 25 over Florida

I love going against a team due for a letdown and Florida is just that.  They’re coming off a big win at LSU and they’ll probably be a little cautious with Tebow if they get a lead. Arkansas is no slouch, having knocked off an unbeaten Auburn team last week.  I think Florida wins fairly easy but not by 24.

Washington + 7  over Arizona State

This one’s just a hunch.  Washington’s been playing well and they’ve got some momentum off last week’s win.  Besides, I don’t like anything Arizona since an exchange student from my high school had a beef with some desert muscle who broke his ankle and locked him up.  So, as Klaus von Fremer always says, “Arizona is punks.”  Go with the Huskies.

Season Record : 12-9
