Student athletes run drills with coaches from all over the country during the Sound Mind Sound Body camp on Friday at Macomb Dakota.

Student athletes run drills with coaches from all over the country during the Sound Mind Sound Body camp on Friday at Macomb Dakota.

There aren’t many topics that unify Big Ten football players.

Often they take subtle jabs at each other and use Twitter for entertainment.

But the NCAA Division I Council’s Friday ruling to restrict college coaches from working at camps off their campus has stirred current and former student athletes for a common cause.

Thousands of Metro Detroit football players have used Detroit’s Sound Mind Sound Body camp as a springboard to their college careers, and founder Curtis Blackwell explained Saturday that won’t be the same under the new rule. The restrictions, which include a ban on satellite camps, have induced a petition from a U-M fan.

After Blackwell brought the challenges for the SMSB camp to light, the players took to Twitter to share how much the camp made a difference for them.
