Just last week, the NCAA announced that schools in the FBS had voted to ban satellite camps from happening in future cases. However, some coaches don’t seem to be happy with the ruling and Washington State head coach Mike Leach was one of the first to speak out.
He joined SiriusXM College Sports Nation today and talked about the ban. He talked about how other coaches across the country should start worrying more about their own team and stop worrying about others, namely Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh, who was the biggest proponent of satellites and likely the reason why they got banned in the first place.
He then went on to say that he was confused about how the Big Ten was the only Power Five conference to vote for satellite camps. He mentioned that several PAC-12 coaches voted to keep them around in the future as well.
The SEC is the one conference that largely opposed satellite camps, simply because Harbaugh took his Wolverines to practice at IMG Academy just a few weeks ago. Mike Leach had something to say to them as well.
I don’t usually agree with Leach, but I have to take his side on this one. Satellite camps are used as a time for coaches to get recruits to take a look at their program and the SEC really doesn’t need an extra advantage, especially since they are known to scoop up some of the biggest names in the country already.
