Stuart Mandel of Fox Sports is reporting that Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott has said that UCLA Athletic Director Dan Guerrero "did not vote the way he was supposed to" on the proposal to ban satellite camps.
A short time ago, Mandel sent out this tweet:
New twist in satellite camp ban. Pac-12 commish Larry Scott says their rep, Dan Guerrero, "did not vote the way he was supposed to vote."— Stewart Mandel (@slmandel) April 20, 2016
Meanwhile, George Schroeder of USA Today offers more detail:
Scott: 11 of Pac-12’s schools did not want satellite camps banned. Which school wanted ban? "I’m not gonna say. Form your own conclusion."— George Schroeder (@GeorgeSchroeder) April 20, 2016
While on the surface it looks extremely significant as the vote was only 6-4 in favor of banning satellite camps, remember that the Big Five conferences had 2 votes each compared to 1 for the other conferences.
Source told @ESPN conferences that voted against satellite camps: ACC, Big 12, SEC, Pac-12, MWC, Sun Belt. In favor: B1G, AAC, C-USA, MAC— Brett McMurphy (@McMurphyESPN) April 8, 2016
So, if the Pac-12 had voted in favor, it looks like the ban still would have passed by a vote of 8-7.
If Larry Scott is saying that Guerrero was supposed to vote in favor and didn't, what could happen as a result of this? Well, for starters, this could lead to Pac-12 replacing Guerrero as its rep and moving to reconsider the previous vote.
A request to the UCLA Athletic Department for Guerrero's response to this has not yet been answered. This article will be updated should there be a response from the Athletic Department.
What other fallout could happen inside the conference as a result of Guerrero going rogue?
That remains to be seen, but, if Larry Scott has gone public with the fact that Guerrero voted the wrong way, this probably isn't the last we are going to hear about satellite camps.
Of course, this does make the assumption that Guerrero knew what he was doing when he cast the Pac-12 vote. While Larry Scott seems to think it was intentionally done, with Dan Guerrero, you can never overlook the possibility that this was just basic incompetence.
