It is no secret that some coaches across the country, namely in SEC country, have not been too keen to the idea of satellite camps continuing throughout college football.

One of the more vocal coaches in all of the backlash has been Alabama's Nick Saban, has been passionate on the subject, but he does not blame Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh, who has long been seen as the face of the movement for expansion.

Saban spoke on the subject at SEC Spring Meetings, per

"I'm not blaming Jim Harbaugh, I'm not saying anything about him," Saban said. "I'm just saying it's bad for college football. Jim Harbaugh can do whatever he wants to do. I'm not saying anything bad about him if he thinks that's what's best. There needs to be somebody that looks out for what's best for the game, not what's best for the Big 10 or what's best for the SEC, or what's best for Jim Harbaugh, but what's best for the game of college football — the integrity of the game, the coaches, the players and the people that play it. That's bigger than all of this.

"That's what somebody should do. Now who's doing that? I don't know. Because right now since we have the Power 5 everybody's politicking for what they want, for their conference. There needs to be a college football commissioner."
