    Greg Paulus


    Orange head coach Doug Marrone named graduate student Greg Paulus the starting quarterback tonight. The transfer from Duke joined the program when he enrolled at the University in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications graduate program in television, radio and film in July.

    A four-year basketball letterwinner for Duke, Paulus was a CoSIDA Academic All-American and two-year team captain. He finished his career tied for ninth with 139 games played and is one of just 20 Duke players to have started 100 career games. Paulus ranks 41st on the career scoring list (1,193 points) and ranks in the top 10 on the all-time record lists for assists (9th, 468), three-point field goals made (8th, 210) and attempted (9th, 527), and three-point field goal percentage (T-6th, .398). He earned third-team All-ACC honors in 2007-08 as the Blue Devils starting point guard.

    Paulus earned his undergraduate degree in political science with a certificate in markets and managements studies. He beat out sophomore Ryan Nassib, senior Cam Dantley and freshman Charley Loeb for the starting position.

    The 2009 Orange kick off the season on September 5 against Minnesota in the Carrier Dome (12:00 p.m., ESPN2). Tickets are available online and at the Carrier Dome Box Office (888-DOME-TIX).

    Season tickets start at $100 for the 2009 season. Adult Individual game tickets for all eight home games are $38 each. Youth tickets (ages 12 & under) for seven home games are $18 each. For the game against Maine on September 26, Youth & Senior Citizen day, all youth and Senior Citizens (ages 60 & over) tickets will be $15 each. Family Packs are available for all home games when purchased in advance, with the exception of games against Maine and Akron. A $99 Family Pack, which is a $28 savings, includes two adult tickets, two youth tickets (12 and under), $5 concession coupon and a $10 parking pass.

    The Minnesota Two-Game Pack offers fans the opportunity to purchase a ticket to Syracuse’s home-opener, which is Marrone’s Dome debut, and any other home game of their choice ($66 adult/$26 youth). Fans are invited to save up to 40% on the ticket price by purchasing tickets in groups of 35 or more and 100 or more. For questions about Group Sales, please call (315-443-3212).

    For further questions and details call the Carrier Dome Box Office during business hours of 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at 1-888-DOMETIX.

    That pretty much sums up the Syracuse football program.

    Paulus was their second choice. They asked these guys first, and were turned down:

    Why quote his basketball stats? Why not just put down his golf handicap, his score on the Sporcle "Name the Presidents" and how many cavities he's had in his life?
