In the interest of full disclosure, I posted this on Syracuse.com. Please see below, and discuss - what do you guys think?
The biggest argument for playing Nassib - and one I agree with at this point - is to build for the future. We're 2-4 right now, 0-2 in the Big East. Let's be realistic now - there will be no bowl game this year. Since that is the case, put Paulus on the pine and develop Nassib for next year.
I have nothing against Paulus - I have been a Paulus fan since he came on board. But he has played his way to the #2 position. Inexcusably bad decision making the last two weeks - so benching him is nothing personal. It's business. Let's see what the kid Nassib has, and maybe he can come in next year firmly in command of the offense, with half a season of experience under his belt.
