More than likely they have written him off, and the coaches and Bolden have hit on a fallback plan for his best shot at the NFL. He'll get a year of pra...

[quote]Hopefully Rettig gets a chance to compete. I am not saying he is the best, because like the rest of us I do not know. I do think that it is foolish of us to anoint anyone as a starter, because none of them really has proved anything at this point. Good luck to all three.[/quote]

He was a two pitch guy with nothing special. Guys like that get figured out fast in college. Apparently he's added a splitter. I couldn't tell that from watching, but they said so on the Geaux Zone telecast. He has been impressive this year.
This pitching staff is looking very formidable for pos...
