One is more than none.

Let’s say for the sake of argument you think the satellite camp ban was enacted in haste by the NCAA and does in fact interfere with some recruits’ ability to be seen by football programs.  Let’s say even further that if you’re a student-athlete, you’re probably more sensitive to the issue than, say, Greg Sankey.

If so, the make up of the bunch on the NCAA’s Division I Board of Directors reviewing the ban today ought to give you the warm and fuzzies:  Twenty chief executive officers, one director of athletics, one senior woman administrator, one faculty athletics representative and – wait for it – one student-athlete.

Ain’t having a real voice in governance grand?

  1. Bring the damn satellite camps back already. Just make it so that all conferences can choose to go to them if they wish.

    I don’t see the big issue here. I can’t think of one coach that said they wanted to outright ban the camps. They just wanted a level playing field so that any school who wanted to participate in the camps could do so.

      I thought there was one coach said to be “..barking up the wrong tree.”. Thought there was another one, but the smell of barbecue begins to permeate my thinking and confuses.

    More to the subject of players not having a venue to show their stuff: Exactly why can’t film be submitted by these “overlooked” players and why can’t many locals just show up for Dawg Night if they feel they are overlooked? How many people send film to staffs only to be overlooked for their play as witnessed by film? Or am I just being insensitive to the forgotten few? If Michigan feels like they are giving those forgotten few a chance they otherwise would not have, how would they get to other states to show their skills in a satellite camp when they don’t have enough money to even present physically to the local schools?

      Because it’s not “locals” that are the issue. It’s that coaches from other programs “can’t just show up”.

    Just go with a combine, like the nfl.
