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.
