That's just off the top of my head.
Winning championships is often about the QB of the team and if they can produce in big games. However, when you have top 3 recruiting classes routinely and great coaching, you always have a shot. A better shot than a team with the #12 recruiting class and great coaching.
Top recruiting classes are more about quantity of blue chip players than one great recruit.
Who is saying that A&M never will reach that level? The point being made is that a great coach has a better opportunity for championships and a better team at USC than at A&M.
There's quite a few posters on here who seem to think "elite" is a never-changing cadre of schools.
