Paulus to Syracuse

As loyal readers know I've been very interested in the story of former Duke point guard Greg Paulus and his quest to play college football this season. After weeks of considering possible schools, Paulus will play next year at Syracuse. Here's a link to the ESPN story:

NU will play at Syracuse on Sept. 19th. I have some doubt that a guy who hasn't played football in 4 years and missed spring practice can really step in and play that well, but Syracuse was pretty awful the last few years (nice win over Notre Dame last year, though) so maybe Paulus can make a difference. It will be interesting to watch. If it works out, it will also be interesting to see if this starts a trend. Most college athletes played more than one sport in high school, and most were pretty good at their other sports too. If Paulus can swtich sports and play well in one post-grad year maybe others will try as well.
