No shame in #4. I should add, my list is more of a top head coaching job list than my own personal preference.
Texas has even deeper pockets than OSU. They are in a state with tremendously more recruits than Ohio. They share those recruits with A&M, but Texas is the premier school in that state. They have their own network and play in a conference a lot easier then the B1G East.
Alabama is on a run that will never be duplicated. I believe it could only have happened at 'bama. Whatever a coach needs, the admin and boosters will make sure he gets it. They also sit less than a 9 hour drive from the vast majority of top recruits in the nation. No school recruits itself, but 'bama comes the closest.
Florida State has become the top program in the most talent-laden state in the country. They play in an easier conference than the B1G East. Their success in the 90's shows you can win and win big.
