During SEC Spring Meetings on Tuesday, Alabama head coach Nick Saban got heated when the topic of Satellite Camps was brought up.

At one point Saban, who is clearly not a fan of satellite camps, pounded his hand on the podium and was getting really heated up. Per AL.com:
quote:

At one point smacking the podium meeting with reporters at the SEC Spring Meetings, Saban spoke his mind with extra volume. Calling it the "wild, wild west" of the recruiting world, Saban railed against the way these camps could make football more like the often-criticized AAU basketball recruiting machine.

"Why would we be promoting somebody else's camp anywhere? Because it's the same thing I said before: this is the only sport where the high school still mattered. What they did at the high school mattered. All you're doing is allowing all these other people that we spend all of our time at the NCAA saying, you can't recruit through a third party. You can't be involved with third-party people and that's exactly what you're doing ...

Then hand met podium.
You can see Saban get heated below in this video. Fast-forward to the 3:35 mark.

Is the idea to have schools with extra camps besides on campus camps?

I missed the part where LSU is allowing third parties to be involved in the recruiting of the players?

Makes $8 mil a year, has players arrested left and right. He's worried about the integrity of CFB. Nice. I'm not saying his view is wrong on third party camps. What I'm saying is hypocrites are hypocrites. Just like the NCAA, just like him, it's all about money. But he wants oversight? Only when it doesn't suit him.

Not sure those players packing heat are "doing the right thing" Nick. How about that coach you just fired?

The powers that be should have to read this video quoted before every spring meeting. Dark days ahead of us boys. Gold chains everywhere and bagmen on every street corner.
