Paulus, who hasn’t played football in four years, transferred to Syracuse as a graduate student this spring.  Greg beat out sophomore Ryan Nassib and senior Cam Dantley and will officially begin the season September 5th at home against Minnesota.  In related news, Ryan Nassib and Cam Dantley must be horrible quarterbacks.

Last year with the Duke Blue Devils, Paulus was exposed as a fraud on the basketball court.  He only started five games after being the starter during his first three seasons.  Coach K finally realized Paulus’ athletic ability was non existent.  There’s a difference between being able to play a sport and running around like a spaz.  Paulus ran around like a spaz.  Look for more of the same at Syracuse.

Luckily Paulus is not playing defense for the Orange.  I could see him trying to draw a charge as the opposing teams’ running back comes running straight at him.

Ryan Nassib should win his starting position back by October 24th when they play Akron.
