NCAA Bans Satellite Camps
The ban is a loss in the eyes of many Big Ten fans, as numerous schools from the conference consistently hold camps in the south, in large part to boost exposure and recruiting options.
The University of Michigan was recently in the news for their camp at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. Many see this instance as the reason why the NCAA as decided now to come out with this ruling, including Big Ten Network's Tom Deinhart. Read his opinion on this ruling here.
The Big Ten was the only Power Five conference that was in favor of satellite camps, a source told ESPN.
The final vote was passed 10-5 in favor of banning satellite camps. Each Power Five conference vote counts for two votes while the other five conferences (known as the Group of Five) has their vote count one.
"The Council approved a proposal applicable to the Football Bowl Subdivision that would require those schools to conduct camps and clinics at their school’s facilities or at facilities regularly used for practice or competition. Additionally, FBS coaches and noncoaching staff members with responsibilities specific to football may be employed only at their school’s camps or clinics. This rule change is effective immediately."
