Urban Meyer had some strong opinions about a new NCAA rule.

But those strong opinions weren’t about the ban of satellite camps. Meyer said that he hopes the NCAA revisits that, and expressed why he feels bad for the non-Power Five conference schools that will be affected.

The decision by the NCAA to deregulate communication between coaches and recruits, however, was a more passionate topic.

Under the new rule, the NCAA Division I Council voted to allow all electronic communication in football, cross country, track and field, swimming and diving. In other words, coaches can now text recruits all they want.

Meyer is not a fan:

It isn’t the first time Meyer voiced his frustrations with text messaging. He was asked about the possibility of deregulation on National Signing Day.

“I hear the stuff about texting,” Meyer said on National Signing Day, according to cleveland.com.  “I want to make this clear why — and this is a high school coach’s and high school player perspective — not college coaches. Who cares about college coaches? That’s not what this is about. It’s about them, and not screwing up a high school kid’s senior year or junior year. If you text someone, you can’t stop that, so you have a phone full of what? Text messages.

“If I don’t want to hear from that school they’ll keep hitting me because that’s their job, and usually it’s not them, it’s maybe an intern doing it. So here’s a kid in high school being bombarded with text messages sitting there doing this all day. If it’s social media, you can determine who you want to hear from.”

For what it’s worth, the same deregulation rule was allowed in college basketball three years ago. College football had a text message ban in place since 2007, and it was one of the last sports to lift it.

But it’s clear that Meyer was not one of the coaches petitioning for that.
