ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit calls satellite camps ‘ridiculous’

ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit doesn’t like the idea of satellite camps one bit, recently calling them “ridiculous.”

“I’m done with the whole concept. I think its ridiculous to think that a coach at an Ohio State or Michigan or anywhere else, Notre Dame, needs to travel all over the country with his staff to be able to recruit,” Herbstreit told Sporting News in recent times.

Tempers are hot with the ongoing debate over satellite camps, which allow colleges including the dominant Michigan and Alabama programs to watch each other’s teams.

Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh’s decision to hold camps in the Southeast infuriated Alabama’s Nick Saban – and really the SEC as a whole as well.

Harbaugh wasted no time in taking a shot at Saban, calling the Crimson Tide coach ‘hypocritical’. Since the spat, Alabama has declared that they have elected to participate in a number of satellite camps.

Kirk Herbstreit, a former Ohio Buckeyes quarterback, sided with Saban on the issue. He admitted that he’s getting entertainment out of the tension between the two coaches.
