Well that didn't take long --a week to be exact, but in a press release posted on the SU Athletics web site at 9:38 tonight, Head Coach Doug Marrone officially named Greg Paulus as the starting quarterback for the Syracuse Orange.
In classic Syracuse fashion the release spends 3 paragraphs talking about Paulus and 4 graphs trying to sell tickets to the home opener. That in itself is awful telling.
Here are some initial stories - look for a full accounting tomorrow:
- Brian Bennett, ESPN - Paulus Will Start for Syracuse
- The Axeman, Syracuse.com (among other places) - Here We Go Greg
- Joe Schad, ESPN - Twitter feed part 1 and part 2
- Jack Carey, USA Today - Former Point Guard Paulus Wins Quarterback Job
- Brendan Punty, Newark Star Ledger - Around the Big East
- Dennis Dodd, CBS Sports -New Syracuse Coach has Zero to Lose With Paulus (this was written earlier today, before GP was named the starter)
