This is going to change so that group of five coaches can go to camps hosted by power five conference schools. I bet that will ultimately be the end result

This seems to be the strategy that's being formulated.

The NCAA and coaches/conferences that voted against satellite camps can pretend they care about student-athletes, and still keep BIG schools out of their backyard - and make sure Harbaugh doesn't get his way.

We'll be fine either way. I just hate the hypocrisy.

Of course. Non-power 5 coaches put in the work at the camp while Freeze fishes and lets the bagman do his work for him. It's not surprising. It's also not surprising that in their fervor to kill satelitte camps the SEC never once thought there may be unintended consequences for themselves. Now the backtracking and lobbying will happen for the SEC to make this ruling end up even more in their favor. Fuck them, and fuck Freeze.

Freeze now wants only Power 5 schools banned from satellite camps which means he remains lazy. He worries about Michigan coming into Ole Miss' territory, but has no concern about inviting Arkansas State into Southern MIss or Alcorn State's territory. Still sounds like pure selfish laziness

I like how the SEC/ACC got raged at Michigan thinking that this will hurt them (rather than the kids/small schools). Michigan will always have an almost unlimited travel budget to send its recruiters all over the place. If I recally correctly, a few of the players offered at these camps last year never ended up matriculating in Michigan's class. IMHO the camps were about talent evaluation, but more so to get publicity/further name recognition down there.

John and Jack Harbaugh through a camp and Jim just happened to stop by. Would they say it was illegal to visit family members?

NCAA = fucking idiots

Hopefully they will get theirs soon.

Group of Five assistants could file an antitrust suit against the NCAA, the SEC, the ACC and all the other leagues that voted for the ban. Because lower-level coaches are paid to work the camps, they could claim these entities colluded to take away an opportunity for them to earn money that the entities would have paid to them without the ban.

You know, if it came to this, I would fully support the effort quite honestly. If the conferences that voted against it need to have their trees shaken to the point where they say "enough" through lawsuits, I am fine with that. I would love to see the Board Of Directors overturn it and everyone just move onwards, but that may be asking too much in the short term.
