Why no big satellite camp is in the works for Rutgers football









New NCAA rule allows 10 days for camps/clinics but put an end to satellite camps like rival ones held by Rutgers, Michigan in New Jersey held last June

PISCATAWAY -- WhenRutgers football released its summer camp schedule, all of the annual staples were included: One with multiple dates for top high school players, one for specialists only, one for youth and one for females.
What was missing? A huge satellite camp like the one at the center of theNew Jersey turf war against Michigan last season.

Heres a refresher: Shortly after it was announced that rules-pusher Jim Harbaugh was headlining a camp at Paramus Catholic High School -- alma mater of Jabrill Peppers,Rashan Gary andDrew Singleton -- Rutgers countered with a same-day, same-time camp at Farleigh Dickinson University in Florham Park.
Rutgers coach Chris Ash enlisted his former boss andmentor Ohio State coach Urban Meyer as well as then-Temple coach Matt Rhule as co-headliners for the Tri-State Showcase.
Those days are over. The NCAA passed a rule earlier this month immediately banning satellite camps, with the caveat that contracts signed before Jan. 18 can be honored in 2017.
In so many words, it was a rule to stop Harbaughs tour across the country ... and into Australia.
NCAA ban on 2-a-days misses the point
In its place, FBS coaches and staff members with football-specific responsibilities are allowed to participate in camps and clinics for 10 days in June and July.
The key wording is all those camps must take place on a schools campus or in facilities regularly used by the school -- not Paramus Catholic, not FDU -- for practice or competition. Coaches still are allowed to work at camps hosted by another college if they work out an arrangement.
You can bet Harbaugh is searching for a loophole. Whether he will return to New Jersey or not remains to be seen. His staff already is working with UCLA at a California camp.
As for Ash?
We wont do anything big like that, he said when asked if there would be a Tri-State Showcase Part II. We will travel around and go do some camps away from our campus. The new rule is the ten camps that we can go to.
Will we use all ten? I dont know yet. But well use, for sure, eight, and if we find good situations to fill in nine and ten, we will.
