Jim Harbaugh responds to Nick Saban's Satellite Camp comments

Jim Harbaugh vs. Nick Saban?

Alabama’s head football coach spoke during Tuesday’s SEC spring meetings about his feelings on satellite camps and the potential issues that surround them.

According to AL.com, Saban referred to satellite camps as the “wild, wild west” of the recruiting world. He also said these camps could make football much like the AAU basketball recruiting machine.

Saban also had the following to say about the camps and how they relate specifically to Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh.

“I’m not blaming Jim Harbaugh, I’m not saying anything about him. 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.”

Well, it looks like Harbaugh got word of the situation and took it upon himself to respond via Twitter.

Check out what the Wolverines’ coach said at the top of the post.

Harbaugh has scheduled more than 30 satellite camp stops this summer, starting this week.
