Per ESPN: Nick Saban is keeping Alabama's quarterback situation shrouded in as much mystery as possible.

The second-ranked Crimson Tide's coach said that no decision has been made on whether Jake Coker or Blake Sims would start Saturday against West Virginia in Atlanta, or if both would play.

Saban did employ a baseball analogy involving Yankees manager and friend Joe Girardi to indicate that the starter won't be guaranteed of going the distance whatever the plan going into the game.

"I mean, Joe Girardi tells (Masahiro) Tanaka he's starting in the game, he's not telling him he's going to pitch nine innings," Saban said. "Does he tell them that or does he just pitch until he doesn't pitch well anymore?"

Update: Blake Sims will start at QB for Alabama.
