Paulus in Dilettante Mode, Meets With Michigan

When I was in Boy Scouts my scoutmaster told me that I might as well enjoy everything before the age of 25 because nothing I did before then would matter much anyway. He was wrong about some things: that felony charge always seems to pop up in job interviews, I can't ever go back to Singapore after that incident in 2001, and that business arrangement I made with the nice man in Nigeria won't seem to go away. (I will get my money back, Mister Adoadji, even if I have to swim to Lagos and beat it out of you myself.)

↵He was right in a sense, though: you should try it all, because unless you're the kind of prodigy who's going right to a seven-figure-salary on Wall Street or in the NBA draft, you're probably going to have to go through some vocational wandering. You might have done this by waiting tables while thinking about law school. Greg Paulus is going to do this by trying to play quarterback for a major FBS football program. We all have options. ↵

↵⇥Former Duke point guard Greg Paulus met with Michigan football coach Rich Rodriguez Tuesday in Ann Arbor to discuss the possibility of Paulus playing quarterback for the Wolverines this season, sources told FoxSports.com. ↵
↵Paulus did play football in high school, and did so quite successfully, though the chances of him making a dent in the depth chart at this point would be minuscule at best, especially with Tate Forcier sliding comfortably into the starting role in year two of the RichRod-olution of Wolverine football. However, if you had the chance to even linger on the bench for a major program, spend one more year lounging around a college town, and try something totally new, well ... it wouldn't be a bad situation to flop into for anyone, Paulus included. (GET IT HUH YES?) ↵

↵(And if it fails, he'll always have the Duke education to fall back on, which is enough to get even former water boys $25 mil a year on Wall Street.) ↵
