Our love for Greg isn't quite to Bud Poliquin levels, but it's strong nonetheless. And it's not just us. The summer intern in the office where I work goes to SU and I asked him today if he was planning on going to any football games this year. He said he was, because after not going to single contest last year, they have Greg Paulus now and he wants to check it out. That's scientific research right there folks.
The issue with Greg-mania running wild is that other than a few highlight reels on YouTube, there isn't much footage of Paulus actually playing football for the fans to digest and break down.
Well that day is over my friends. The Post Standard (which does an excellent job covering the team) may have went juuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuust a tad overboard. With SU kicking reporters out of practice after 30 minutes, their opportunities to get a look at the players in action is extremely limited, but they are going to squeeze every last drop out of that opportunity.
The video below was taken while the players were warming up and not doing much. Still they manage to isolate Paulus making a few soft throws to a teammate and then replay it in SLOW MOTION. Multiple times.
I mean slow motion? Really? Am I supposed to be looking at Paulus or scanning the bleachers for gun smoke or a grassy knoll? Keanu Reeves could be throwing a ball to a guy 10 yards away and it would appear like he's got an arm. Check it out for yourself -- and if you happen to see a second shooter, let us know at once.
