The Big Ten Was Reportedly Only Power 5 Conference To Vote In Favor Of Satellite Camps

Predicting every team's first loss.

The Big Ten was mostly alone in its support of satellite camps, according to a report by ESPN's Brett McMurphy. 

It was announced today that the NCAA had banned the camps made popular by Jim Harbaugh (but also used by many other programs). 

McMurphy is reporting that the Big Ten was the only Power 5 conference to vote in-favor of satellite camps. The ACC, Big 12, SEC and Pac-12 all reportedly voted against them. 

">@ESPN conferences that voted against satellite camps: ACC, Big 12, SEC, Pac-12, MWC, Sun Belt. In favor: B1G, AAC, C-USA, MAC

">@ESPNRittenberg actually it’s a 10-5 margin. Power 5 votes count as 2 votes

This isn't that surprising, as the Big Ten is clearly the Power 5 conference that benefits the most by being able to hold camps in the South. The Mountain West's decision to vote against is pretty puzzling, though.
