Which programs then do you respect the most? I would have to say Penn State, Florida, and Oregon State are the three I have the most respect for at this point in time. I know Penn State has had a few problem players in recent history, but as a football program I really respect the Nittany Lions. You have to have some admiration for Florida, even though I'm not a fan at all of the SEC. Granted, they have it pretty easy being in the 3rd best recruiting ground in the entire country, but at least Meyer runs a cleaner program than his peers at FSU and Miami. In addition to those two, I really like what Oregon State has done in the past decade under Mike Riley. Oregon State does not even come close to what it can offer facilities wise against its in state rival Oregon, yet he's built a winner (not a champion yet) in the Pac 10 in probably the 2nd hardest place to win at in the conference (Wash. State is even harder). He has no chance out recruiting Cal, USC, UCLA, Oregon and to some extent Washington on the West Coast yet he's been able to find hidden gems around the region.
