Only Greg Paulus would be willing to stay in college one more year to touch a guy’s ass.
At least that’s what the former Duke point guard hopes to do in transferring to Michigan for his fifth and final year of NCAA eligibility.
Paulus and his trademark black eye intend to compete for the Wolverines’ open quarterback job, where head football coach Rich Rodriguez has assembled a mish-mash crew of borderline talent.
Rodriguez has already forced two prized quarterbacks to leave Ann Arbor in Steven Threet and Ryan Mallet, and has essentially left the cupboard bare for the ’09 season.
Paulus will be challenging true freshmen Tate Forcier and Denard Robinson, as well as junior Nick Sheridan for reps under center. With Forcier establishing the early grasp on the starting job, Paulus actually has a decent chance of supplanting the first-year player for playing time.
The ex-Blue Devil was a standout high school quarterback who earned All-America honors as a senior, and had numerous scholarship offers to play football at universities around the country.
