The ban hits close to home for players from the Detroit area.

Much has been made about the NCAA's controversial ruling to ban satellite camps in college football. It hits particularly close to home in the Detroit area, where the Sound Mind Sound Body has been held on a yearly basis and helps prospects from all over the Midwest improve and get noticed.

Last year, Jim Harbaugh, Mark Dantonio and Urban Meyer, among other coaches, were at the event not just scouting players, but also coaching and speaking to these young men about how to be better on and off the field.

Under the NCAA's ruling, college coaches will no longer be able to attend events like this and it certainly affects how they will operate moving forward.

Many past, present and future Wolverines, Spartans or other college athletes have bettered themselves through the experience and have chimed in throughout the weekend with their two cents on the issue.

Here is a handful of tweets:
