Alabama starting quarterback Jacob Coker went 15-of-24, with 202 yards and one touchdown in The Crimson Tide's  41-0 destruction of Florida Atlantic last Saturday. It was his first time leading the Tide's offense for the former transfer from Florida State.

What did Alabama head coach Nick Saban think about Coker's performance. Saban gave his assessment of Coker on Thursday.

"I think Jake is certainly making progress and improving," Saban said Thursday on his weekly radio show. "I think sometimes people sort of underestimate how important it is for a quarterback to really understand the terminology, understand the offense, feel comfortable with exactly what's expected of him. Also, understanding exactly how other people that you play with are going to run a route or whatever, systematically being able to change plays, being comfortable with the terminology.
"He's made a tremendous amount of progress but I still think there's times when he's a little uncertain exactly about what he's supposed to do."

Coker is fighting with fellow Tide QB Blake Sims to earn the full-time starting QB job. Sims went 12-of-14, with 228 yds. and two TD's.
