Status Of Chase Rettig

After both Shinskie and Marscovetra failed to move the Eagles' offense in a 44-17 loss to N.C. State, most Superfans have quickly turned their attention to the health of freshman quarterback Chase Rettig. Conroy is reporting that Rettig was scheduled to practice on Sunday, and Spaziani says he is day-to-day:

"Rettig, the true freshman who suffered a sprained left ankle against Notre Dame on Oct. 2, was expected to practice yesterday and coach Frank Spaziani said he’s day-to-day.

If Rettig’s healthy enough to play next Saturday at FSU, then the quarterback situation will be settled, if not necessarily fixed just yet."

Rettig was given medical clearance to practice yesterday, but Spaz says he will need to see him in a series of practices before handing the ball back over to the true freshman.

If Rettig can't go, Spaz will turn back to Shinskie or Marscovetra. He also hasn't ruled out other options. Spaz's Plan B?

"That would be No. 15 [Shinskie] or 16 [Marscovetra], with other considerations. We have analyzed everything. We have gone through every scenario. It's not an easy problem.''

Those other scenarios include Josh Bordner, the freshman QB that has played exclusively on the scout team this year. Apparently, everything is on the table as this team needs a spark from any place they can get it. If it's not Rettig, Shinskie or Marscovetra under center on Saturday, though, may the college football gods have pity on us.
