No not Ron Powlus.
So it seems that our favorite posterized point guard will be playing QB at Syracuse this fall.
I realize everyone hates Paulus along with Duke, but I actually think this is kind of cool. At the very least Mentos in Coke cool.
Furthermore, it seems that Paulus paid attention at Duke because this is a pretty smart move on his part. He's from Syracuse. If he clears the waiver he'll start at QB, and nobody really expects him to do anything because...well...it's Syracuse. Plus he'll get a year to show scouts what he can do, and if he does fall flat on his face at least he'll get a masters degree. Education first, right NCAA?
For those of you that think this is a pipe dream, remember that Paulus was a high school All-American and Gatorade player of the year in high school.
But those are just awards, lets take a look at some film shall we?
The eye in the sky don't lie, and it seems that Paulus has some moves. (he'll need it Cuse ranked 98th in sacks given last year) Passing looks shaky. He's a slinger.
But hey it's Syracuse, why the hell not.
