A merciful end

Thankfully, the Greg Paulus-to-Michigan saga appears to be over. According to Scout, Michigan is no longer in pursuit.
Sources indicated late Friday afternoon that the Michigan football program is no longer exploring the possibility of adding former Duke PG Greg Paulus to its fall roster.
I've already written way more than intended about the potential transfer of a guy who hasn't played football since high school, but one final summary: Paulus would have been nice for depth purposes as a backup to Tate Forcier, but the accompanying media frenzy was completely out of control and might have been an overall detriment to the team. It wasn't worth it for a guy who would have been competing with walk-on Nick Sheridan for the backup job, and I'm thankful it's over.

Now let us never speak of this again.
