The NCAA ban on satellite camps has drawn the ire of many involved in the Michigan Wolverines and the Big Ten.
Locally, radio hosts at 97.1 and 105.1 have sounded off against the ban, Wolverines and Spartans alike. Now, the players who are a part of the Michigan program are speaking out on social media regarding the ban. Here’s what they had to say:
We can't let the NCAA do this. Everybody get #ChangeNCAA trending. They think they're hurting Coach but they're really hurting the kids.

NCAA takes FOREVER to act for athletes, but any threat to recruiting its money making assets, IMMEDIATE ACTION. https://t.co/sVL2jT7r4o

What do you think, Nation? Did the NCAA do the right thing? Or do you side with the players/sports figures criticizing the NCAA?
