Rock On: Robert Anae's theory on BYU title (6 items)
BYU offensive coordinator Robert Anae was at his sardonic best last week, discussing the Cougars’ 1984 national title. Anae played on the Robbie Bosco-led team.
“We always remind each other of how great we were. The stories seem to be getting bigger,” he told reporters. “The Holiday Bowl — I think I heard Bosco was helicoptered out of there and brought back. The older, the wilder the stories. Mythical. Legendary. Shoot, we just got lucky in my opinion.”
So at least there’s one person in Provo who understands what BYU — as an independent — most needs in order to win another national championship.

Just wondering, is this somehow connected to the Jazz’s 28-point loss to Golden State?
2 of 6. ROUGHING KC
SKC’s coach and some players made it clear they didn’t want to be friends with their rival.
And to think, this was all before Nat Borchers tried to give the entire SKC side an abrasion with his beard.
3 of 6. FOREVER YOUNG
To which senior sensation George Foreman allegedly said:“Yeah, but can she make a good burger?”
4 of 6. HELPING HARPER
"I mean, I'm pretty lost right now, actually," he told Sports Illustrated. "I'm trying everything right now. We'll see where I'm at tomorrow. Give Pops a call and see what he says, also."
If he’s like most sports parents, Pops surely had something to say about Harper sitting out Sunday’s game against Atlanta.
5 of 6. ICY RECEPTION
The headline says, “6 moves to lower scores with Paulina Gretzky.”
But since Wayne Gretzky’s daughter isn’t a pro golfer, players say the magazine is merely pandering.
Editor Jerry Tarde argued there have been “sports figures, celebrities and models on Golf Digest’s covers since the magazine’s beginning.”
All Rock On wants to know is whether Janet Jones Gretzky was ever on the cover of The Hockey News.
