This time last week, Nick Saban was waiting for someone at the quarterback position to “grab the bull by the horns.” With the opener a mere five days away, there’s nary a bull in sight let alone a set of horns within arm’s reach.
On the depth chart released Monday, the quarterback position was listed as follows: “6 Blake Sims/14 Jacob Coker.” Presumably the players were listed in numerical order.
In discussing the position, Saban did allow that a decision would be made in the coming days. Whether that’ll become public knowledge before the opener against West Virginia is unknown.
“Obviously somebody has to start the game,” the UA head coach said. “We’ll make that decision at some point this week.”
Saban also went to a baseball analogy to intimate that both Coker (pictured, left) and Sims (pictured, right) could see the field against the Mountaineers.
“You’ve got a starting pitcher, doesn’t necessarily mean he is going to go nine innings,” Saban said.
