1. His career record
Moore’s career record at Boise State is 26-3, while Newton is 13-0. Why, does Moore get so much consideration, then? Because he changed them from a no-name college football program to a high level one.
2. Team respectability
Like I said in #1, Moore singlehandedly transformed the Broncos into a respectable program. Auburn was a household name before Newton.
3. Off the field
Newton is still part of controversy for what his father did to receive improper benefits, but Moore has never had any sort of off the field occurence.
