It has to be a little more than just Newton though. This is Chizik's fourth year as coach so the roster is mostly his recruits. Does he have a problem getting the blue chip HS'ers to consider coming there? Saban is a tough guy to go against so he must be losing in-staters to Tuscaloosa. I saw the same type of slide at FSU in the early 70's. The Noles went from bowl-caliber (when it really meant something to get the extra game) to 0-11 three years after Bill Peterson left for the NFL and hapless Larry Jones took over. Jones could coach but couldn't recruit.
Despite all of life's bumps and bruises, I'm still committed to making this world better one smile, one laugh at a time, every day!
