Urban Meyer and Qamar Hasan at SMSB:
What makes this different than when Franklin announced he was going to camps in Georgia? I am pretty sure we have sent coaches to out of state camps before right?
Yeah, well…that’s just like, your opinion, man.
It isn't different. Not sure what your question is. The SEC doesn't allow coaches to travel past a certain distance for camps.
It was in response to the big deal that the SEC made with Franklin going to camps....l I was trying to figure if he was doing something we were not.
They were more mad about what Franklin was doing because he is "trespassin' on ther' turritory"
From what I understand, Franklin and other PSU coaches are working the camps, doing the drills, coaching the players up, etc. not just speaking to the kids.They are "guest facilitators" at camps put on at other universities, so it's basically a PSU camp in another state.
The SEC has a mile radius rule in place it's not an NCAA rule and the B1G has no such rule. B1G coaches could go to camps in Antarctica if they wanted to. The SEC coaches got their panties in a bunch about their own rule and were upset that other conferences didn't have a similar rule. I'm sure they will repeal their own rule sooner than later so that they can do exactly what Franklin was doing to them. Notre Dame does it as well and I wouldn't be shocked to see Urban at camps down south next year with Franklin.
I think the sec is more likely to try to change the NCAA to a mile radius than repeal their own. That would keep northern teams from invading their territory at all. Easier to repeal their own but the NCAA is a fraud system anyway now so they could probably make that happen.
I agree with you M15 I think that will be the first thing they try and make happen! It just sounds like them to do exactly that. I don't however see how they would ever win that vote when a couple of their own coaches have openly criticized it and just about every coach outside of the SEC is in favor of no such restrictions. Will be interesting to see what happens. I know anytime Saban and his buddy Emmert get together things can get real shady.
Thanks for sharing this, GB; really interesting to see Coach at work, and how he works an audience. Good stuff.
If the pen is truly mightier than the sword, I may be the most dangerous man I know...
I heard Jackie Sherrill on Brando's show talk about this. The SEC coaches started conducting camps around the south in the late 80's. As it started to get out of hand, they put the 50-mile limit in place to stop escalation.
Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.
It never gets old listening to coach speak
