SEC Spring Meeting Agenda to Focus on Graduate Transfers and Satellite Camps

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – The Southeastern Conference agenda for its spring meetings leans heavily toward ensuring other leagues don’t have any competitive advantages, whether it’s satellite camps or rules restricting graduate transfers.
Coaches have grumbled about outside competitors like Penn State’s James Franklin and Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh holding football camps as guest coaches in the SEC’s fertile recruiting territory.
It’s something the SEC doesn’t allow its own coaches to do. It will be a hot topic at next week’s SEC gathering in Destin, Florida.
Commissioner Mike Slive told The Associated Press Friday that "if the rest of the country sees it differently, we’re going to pay attention to that."
Auburn athletic director Jay Jacobs believes the SEC needs to ease it’s rule requiring a league waiver for graduate transfers who have had off-the-field issues.
