HAHA weird I voted Paulus just because he isn't a guy who you would watch playing basketball at duke and say man he could play in the NFL. Isaiah is a shocker but honestly after what he did with the Knicks job isn't that big a shock :)

I heard on ESPN this morning Paulus was nat'l gatorade POY for football. The only other nat'l POY I know of to choose another sport was Joe Mauer. Things seem to be going a little better for Joe than they did for Paulus.

I wouldn't touch Thomas with a 10 foot poll he ruins everything he touches: CBA, Rapters, and Knicks. I guess he didn't screw up the Pacers, but once he left they went to the Finals.

Greg Paulus was an outstanding QB. I think he got recruited by Notre Dame and Miami, but he should of tryed out for the Vikes instead of the Packers. They could use him :)

He also should've played football in college. Unless he went to Duke for an education which, although they're my team, he wouldnt've received at Miami. Let's be real, haha. Playing basketball at Duke and football and Notre Dame are two of the most prestigious offers a person could get, and he was offered both, quite impressive even for a Dukie.
That's a lovely fur you're wearing. Perhaps I could find you some slippers made from the skins of innocent and defenseless baby seals!
