WW has their preseason sched/teams listed now. http://www.uww.edu/athletics/mbaseball/schedule.cfm
If you can't ignore an insult, top it; if you can't top it, laugh it off; and if you can't laugh it off, it's probably deserved.

UWW Florida trip seems a little disapointing.  They only play 1 preseason ranked team in #16 Southern Maine.  Oshkosh plays Cortland #2, Suffolk #22, Wheaton Mass #25 as well as Carthage.  Carthage is also playing Cortland. 

When will UWW roster be posted, thay still have last years up?  When my son was at UWW's winter camp I thought I heard a mention of a transfer from SIU.

Most teams have very little control of there spring trip schedule. They just announce that they are coming and and organizer sets up games with teams that will also be there. I know one year a team was matched up in FL with a team from their own conference... played them twice down south and four more times in conference, could have been more had the team qualified for the post-season tourney or NCAAs.

I emailed the WW coach about posting the roster. He said it would be another 2-3 weeks before he made out his "traveling" roster. He said they had 4 srs. 4 jrs. and 30 freshemn and sophs. Guess we have to wait a while longer.

I have never seen him play, but I always read about C/1B Mike Kuhn last year.  He had some ridiculous  numbers last year for Burlington Catholic Central, I'm pretty sure he hit over .500.  I saw Mcormick from Kenosha Tremper pitch once for the Kenosha Kings this summer, he throws fairly hard and could probably compete for a middle reliver type role.

I have read the post on Stevens Point's self-report to the NCAA for rule breaking,what else is new in the WIAC.
My son played in the WIAC and the top schools in the WIAC all stretch the rules. 
So please do not just call up Pat Bloom from Stevens Point.
And yes he has kept the winning tradition going at Stevens Point.
I think it should be a good race again in the WIAC but don't forget about Platteville, they have improved

What was done at Stevens point to break the rules, and are is the NCAA punishing the program at all for what was done?

There was some problem with recruiting Coe from Lawrence. Haven't heard anything about any penalties yet.

All programs stretch the rules... it is a matter of fact. Those that do not are generally doing one of two things... lying about it or losing games. I am not saying it is right to do it, but it is necessary in order to compete.

Care to elaborate on the rule stretching being done?

I'm a little curious what you mean too. It is D-3 so there can't be all the under the table money type stuff going on. I'm guessing you mean maybe practicing more than is allowed, or somehow getting a player eligible who shouldn't be, or something along those lines. I wish Carthage could have"bent the rules" to get that guy eligible this year, hopefully they can overcome that loss.

You would be amazed at the "jobs" players are given... even at the small schools. I have heard of a few cases where players were paid ridiculous amounts of money to shovel small sidewalks for alumni... or to cut the lawn of an alum.

And when it comes to recruiting, many coaches "bend" the rules and use friends of the recruit who are already in the program to lure them away from their current program.
