The Seattle Times polled 29 coaches with various questions they would likely only answer if granted anonymity.
There wasn't a ton of Big 12 flavor, but Mack Brown and Bob Stoops came up in favorable spots.
Four coaches -- the most of any candidate -- named Brown the colleague they respected the most. Two more tabbed Stoops. Ohio State's Jim Tressel (3) and Penn State's Joe Paterno (2) were the only other coaches who received more than a single vote.
Collect yourself before reading who they voted as the colleague they respected the least: USC's Lane Kiffin, who received three votes, though most coaches declined to answer.
For those of you in Big 12 country, Del Frisco's in Dallas was named as one of the coaches' favorite out-of-town restaurant haunts.
