Jeremy Fowler with CBSSports.com is reporting that Alabama quarterback Blake Sims is likely to get the starting nod over Florida State transfer Jacob Coker for the season opener on Saturday:

Alabama's early-week plan is to play two quarterbacks on Saturday against West Virginia , with fifth-year senior Blake Sims the current favorite to start, CBSSports.com has learned.

Touted Florida State transfer Jacob Coker will play in the Georgia Dome, but he failed to create significant separation in Bama's quarterback race, and is expected to come off the bench.

The next three practices could change the outlook. As of Monday night, the team's plan was similar to Alabama's 2011 opener against Kent State, when A.J. McCarron and Philip Sims split time.
What do you think? Is Sims starting or Coker?

Blake Sims has been a model backup and patiently waited his turn...if Coker hasn't separated himself, Sims should start

You should start Sims over Corker if they are close in ability. It sends the message to the team that if you stay, work hard, and keep out of trouble you will be rewarded and not thrown under the bus by a "Johnny come lately"
