Jeremy Hoeck of the Yankton Press and Dakotan posted this interview to his twitter account this afternoon. If you’re too lazy to watch the short clip, I’ll pull out the highlights
- USD AD David Sayler, newly appointed, talked to Summit commissioner Tom Douple this morning.
- “I’m very committed to the Summit League in terms of what they’re trying to do with the Missouri Valley in some semblance of a conference that splits into two divisions or whatever it might be,” Sayler said. “The Summit has moved up its site visit to North Dakota by a couple of weeks. It’s earlier than plannedÂ and some of that is to get North Dakota into the league in order to have serious discussions with the Valley. Right now, there’s not a third team to approach the Valley with and hopefully North Dakota will be that team and Southern Utah will stay and that will be the group we move forward with.”
- Sayler said he and Faison had breakfast together in Yankton before the UND and USD football game. The two talked about staying committed to each other.
- Sayler also essentially says he’s trying to sort the truth from the bull when it comes to conferences. “No one’s really telling the truth totally,” he said. “There are lots of agendas out there.”
