Oh no, this isn’t a joke. I don’t know about you, but it took me all day yesterday to wrap my brain around the reasons that the Packers would be interested in Greg Paulus. Now, today I have to wake up to this:
According to sources close to the situation, the former Duke point guard was in Ann Arbor on Tuesday meeting with Michigan football coach Rich Rodriguez about the possibility of playing this season for the Wolverines.
The 6-foot-1 Paulus, who was the Gatorade National Player of the Year as a standout quarterback at Christian Brothers Academy in New York, has one year of eligibility left for football after playing four years of basketball at Duke.
Say what? So first a NFL franchise is interested, now a prominent college football program is as well? How does this even happen? How does a guy that hasn’t played football in over 4 years garner this much attention? Ok, let me just drive my point home. How does GREG PAULUS garner this much attention for a sport he hasn’t played in over four years?
Ok, let me calm down. You calm down too. Calm? Ok. Now, that you’re calm, I have to hit you with another piece of ridiculousness.
Sources also told FOXSports.com that Paulus, who worked out last Thursday for the Packers in Durham, N.C., has been contacted by a half-dozen NFL teams and several other college programs.
Say what? You know what? I’m done. If you need me, I’ll be out back running routes. And for any NFL teams or college programs reading this, I’ll be expecting your calls.
