NCAA Puts an End to Football Satellite Camps
The NCAA Division I Council approved a proposal to prevent college football coaches from hosting camps away from campus. The decision will put an end to satellite camps immediately.
Here is the tweet that stirred up a hornet's nest on Twitter.
The SEC crafted the proposal and has caught a lot of the criticism as a result. But the majority of the college football conferences voted in favor of banning the satellite camps. According to ESPN's Brett McMurphy, the only Power 5 conference that didn't was the Big Ten.
Alabama head coach Nick Saban has been among the most vocal opponents to the camps, which have become increasingly popular in the South.
"I love the system and the way we do it now," Saban said earlier this week. "If everybody has a satellite camp, every player will have 62 camps to go to. I don't know that works."
Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh and Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer both had upcoming camps in multiple states this summer, but those plans will have to be cancelled.
