David Pollack Says To 'Hand The Job' To Alabama QB Jacob Coker

Add ESPN college football analyst David Pollack to the growing list of people who think that Jacob Coker is ready to start for Alabama on Day One.

 

 

Pollack said further that watching Coker during his time in Tallahassee is what convinced him the former Florida State QB is ready to go.

Some Seminole fans have responded that if he were that good, Nick Saban wouldn’t have missed on him the first time around. Regardless, he’s wearing Alabama’s jersey now, and is vying for the job with Blake Sims.

Rational Crimson Tide fans aren’t quite ready to award the starting job, a Heisman trophy and a national championship to Coker – not yet anyway. But the obvious talent is there, and if he’s able to pick up Lane Kiffin’s offense and execute it in practice, there’s no reason to think he won’t have a more than solid shot at the job.
