Nick Saban is never shy about sharing his feelings on issues around college football. From an early signing period to pace of play, he’s sounded off on a variety of topics in the past year alone.

In his appearance at a Crimson Caravan stop in Huntsville, Ala. last night, Saban went in on one of the latest trends in college football: satellite camps.

In recent years, several schools from the midwest have been a part of camps in cities in SEC territory, sending their head coaches as “guest coaches” alongside the coaches at the smaller host schools. James Franklin, who left Vanderbilt for Penn State after the 2013 season, has been a guest coach at several camps in Georgia and Florida; new Michigan head man Jim Harbaugh is set to appear at camps in Alabama and Georgia this year.

Saban spoke out against the practice in his appearance last night. Here’s what he had to say, per

If we’re all going to travel all over the country to have satellite camps, you know, how ridiculous is that? … I mean we’re not allowed to go to all-star games, but now we’re going to have satellite camps all over the country. So it doesn’t really make sense.

The SEC doesn’t support coaches to make those kinds of appearances. Incoming commissioner Greg Sankey labeled them as “recruiting tours” and not the instructional camps they’re billed as, in an appearance at the Associated Press Sports Editors’ Southeast Region meeting held at the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame and Museum earlier this week.

In that appearance, Sankey indicated the SEC’s coaches as a whole are unhappy about the satellite camps and that the SEC will push for national legislation against them.
