Will swell of support overturn ban?

Pac-12: UCLA AD went rogue in camp vote (3:12)

ESPN college football reporter Heather Dinich explains why UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero didn't follow the Pac-12's order to vote in favor of satellite camps. (3:12)

If circus music plays in your head while reading the latest updates to the satellite camp ruling, you're not alone. A lot has happened in a short amount of time and quite a bit has been confusing.

To bring you up to speed, this is where the ruling currently stands and where it can go from here:

Conference representatives initially voted 10-5 to implement the rule to ban college football coaches from conducting camps outside of their institution's campus. It also bans an institution's coach from being employed at another institution's camp.

Votes cast by Power 5 teams were counted as two votes, as compared to one each for Group of 5 teams. The actual outcome was six conferences who voted for the ban -- ACC, Big 12, Pac-12, SEC, Mountain West and Sun Belt -- and four who voted against it.

However, Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott said Wednesday that UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero, the Pac-12's voting representative, cast his vote against the wishes of the coaches within the conference.

"I think he's clear he did not vote the way he was supposed to vote," Scott told ESPN.com. "We had 11 schools in our conference that wanted this looked at as we studied more comprehensively football recruiting issues -- there's a variety of them -- but in the meantime we'd prefer the status quo, which for us allows coaches to attend other camps in other markets."

The Sun Belt conference also initially voted to ban the satellite camps, but commissioner Karl Benson said that if there were a revote today, his conference would be 7-5 in favor of keeping the camps.

Going back to the tally of 10-5 that enacted the proposal: If the Pac-12 and Sun Belt had both voted in favor of keeping the camps, the proposal would have been defeated 8-7.

Those new details have given hope to the college coaches, high school coaches and recruits who are against the ban, their argument being that the camps help further the evaluation process and are a way for under-recruited prospects to gain exposure to a larger number of college football programs.

Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, a leading proponent of satellite camps, was at the forefront of that argument and said recently that his athletic director, Warde Manuel, was taking the lead on reversing the vote. A source said Iowa State is also working to get the ruling rescinded.

On the opposite side, two sources in the SEC said they have not heard any behind-the-scenes chatter to rally the troops and stay the course with the ban.

Under the new governance structure, the NCAA board of directors is not required to take any action regarding legislation, but with such confusion and backlash against the vote, there is the possibility that the directors will discuss potential next steps at their meeting.

Since the original vote did not receive 85 percent majority, individual schools can electronically request that the vote be relinquished. That rescission process, which would require 66.7 percent of FBS programs to request the vote to be repealed, won't start until after the board of directors meet next week.

That adds up to 85 of the 128 FBS programs needing to request the ruling to be reversed.

Based on what conference commissioners and coaches have said, it's not unrealistic to think that the vote would be close. If the majority of the programs from the conferences who voted against the ban were on board from the Big Ten, AAC, MAC and Conference USA, that would add up to 51 programs.

The Pac-12 commissioner said the conference has 11 schools in favor. The Sun Belt has seven and the Mountain West has four. That would give 73 votes to rescind the ruling and would only need 12 from the ACC, Big 12 and SEC to request to rescind the vote.

Since the initial vote to ban satellite camps, coaches from those leagues have voiced their opposition.

"I don't understand the concept and the thought that's being put into taking away schools and coaches from potentially seeing young men that could be involved in getting an education and being involved in the team at some point later in their career." Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy told The Oklahoman.

"It has given us an opportunity for 12 years to go out and coach and allow young people in other parts of the state who may not be as financially able to come to Stillwater and be at our campus."

Oklahoma's Bob Stoops and Iowa State's Matt Campbell, from the Big 12 alone, have spoken out against the ban.

Depending on who you talk to now, the bill will either get defeated or tabled by the board of directors. Either way, everyone is currently waiting for the directors to meet and the conclusion will be drawn from there.

If they get the votes required, then the vote is defeated. It cannot be resubmitted for two years.
