Irony hates me. It absolutely wants to watch me squirm and burn in hell. When all of you were ripping on Greg Paulus for the last four years while he flopped around Duke, I was trying to take the high road. “He’s the type of guy you hate to watch play for someone else, but if he were on your team you would absolutely love him… He’s a coach’s dream.” Yeah, whoops. ESPN relays this quote,
“There has been an opportunity given there,” Paulus said Thursday morning on a conference call with reporters. “I thought it was a really good visit. It was really helpful to get to be on a campus and meet with coach [Rich] Rodriguez and see the system and understand what types of opportunities are out there.”
Now, as a Michigan Football fan, I am forced to come to grips with myself. Can I actually root for this tiny bastard? Hmm… do the numbers 3-9 mean anything to you? Look, if the guy can win the Wolverines some more games, I could care less how many times he was getting dunked on in Cameron Indoor. And as hard as it is to say, the guy is a hell of a leader. He has played on some of the lesser Duke teams, but that’s still not an easy job to have. Then, when forced into a backup role midway through this past season, he took his demotion gracefully. So, I guess I’ll support the little guy. What the hell else do Michigan fans have to lose? 10 games in a season?
