"Each place was unique, but in my heart, I just felt that Syracuse was the place for me," Paulus told FOXSports.com. "It's a chance to go home and make a difference. I'm excited about trying to re-energize the Syracuse program. It's a pretty neat thing."Paulus' decision couldn't have surprised me less. Would I have liked to see him come to Nebraska this fall? Absolutely. Not only would he provide extra exposure for our university and football program, but he would have added depth behind Zac Lee which more than likely would have allowed Cody Green or Latravis Washington to redshirt. Now, I can't see the coaches having the luxury of redshirting any of the quarterbacks, especially with Kody Spano's injury and subsequent return unknown. That being said, you can't blame Paulus for returning to his home state of New York, for wanting to attend the best graduate school he could, and for wanting a chance to actually play football in the fall instead of experiencing it from the sidelines in Lincoln.
