So, here we are, a good 20 hours after Dickinson State was invited to join the Frontier Conference and there has been no official acceptance by the university … but it’s coming. Dickinson State interim athletic director Tim Daniel said DSU is still waiting on the Frontier to send its written letter of invitation before it will formally accept the offer.
It sounds like there are several details still being worked out. As I type this, Daniel and DSU President Dr. Richard McCallum are in a meeting. Daniel reported this afternoon that Frontier Conference Commissioner Kent Paulson and officials from the league are still working on the details of the invitation letter and everything that goes with it. The reason behind this is so that they can present people like me, who are hounding them for details so we can get our stories done, the right facts on what all comes with DSU joining the Frontier Conference in 2012-13.
I’ll keep you updated as this story continues to develop. I should have something solid for you by tonight.
