It's Michigan's Jim Harbaugh vs. Alabama's Nick Saban -- and it's getting good.

Satellite camps started this week for many college football teams, and the bickering over the rules are heating up.

On Tuesday, ex-Michigan State and current Alabama head coach Nick Saban expressed concern for the future of college football, calling it the "Wild Wild West," while pointing out the potential compliance issues as to why these camps are bad.

Saban also mentioned Jim Harbaugh by name, according to the Associated Press.

"There needs to be somebody that looks out for what's best for the game, not what's best for the Big Ten or what's best for the SEC or what's best for Jim Harbaugh," Saban said, "but what's best for the game of college football — the integrity of the game, the coaches, the players and the people that play it. That's bigger than all of this."

Harbaugh fired back on Tuesday with a fantastic tweet calling out "rules-breaking" Alabama.

Satellite camps have been a point of controversy since the NCAA temporarily banned them in early April, but overturned the decision shortly after.

Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh is reportedly setting up shop in California, and previously announced June camp in South Alabama. 

In the meantime, we'll hope to see Michigan and Alabama on the field together some day soon.
