The NCAA and their new ruling on Satellite Camps seem to be getting hit pretty hard from the folks outside the ACC and SEC. Mike Leach has a solid take:
“It appears that the selfish interests of a few schools and conferences prevailed over the best interests of future potential student-athletes,” WSU coach Mike Leach said in a text message to the Seattle Times. “The mission of universities and athletic programs should be to provide future student-athletes with exposure to opportunities, not to limit them. It appears to me that some universities and conferences are willing to sacrifice the interests of potential student-athletes for no better reasons than to selfishly monopolize their recruiting bases.
“I will be fascinated to hear any legitimate reasoning behind this ruling.”
The NCAA would have been smart to limit the number of camps, not shutting them down completely. Doing 4-5 camps a summer seems like a good compromise for both sides.
