Well, with the draft now complete, I think we can pencil Whitewater in as the favorite for 2018 as both Jones and Renz will be back, giving the Warhawks a VERY formidable #1 and #2 for their starting rotation.
I didn't see that coming.
Has their been any feedback as to why Jones was passed over this season after being drafted last year?  Did teams think he wouldn't sign and planned on returning to Whitewater for his senior season?

It was broadly believed that he would be drafted and signed. I don't think anyone ever expected that he would return to UWW this fall, and he was quoted in numerous media stories about his readiness and plans to sign. He even stated that he believed he had given UWW everything he had and was ready to go.

I don't think anyone has any idea what happened.
The only thing I can think of, and this is purely speculation by ME, is that there was something that pooped up in regards to the health of his elbow/shoulder....  It's about the only thing that makes any kind of sense....
Hmmm... "pooped" "elbow" and "shoulder" are not three things that I usually associate in the same sentence.

Crap!!!!

Was supposed to be "popped."  :-[

I know the story is a bit "dated" but with the Quintana trade between the Cubs and White Sox this week, it seemed somewhat relevant again.

One of the big pieces the Cubs gave up (Top 100 Prospect Dylan Cease) will be reporting to Kannapolis to play for Jirschele.

Unless the trifecta of Washburn/Gasper/Mlodik or Glysch/Grater/Taschner are back in uniform for UWO, I would be shocked to see UWO competing for the WIAC crown.....
Speaking of Taschner, it looks like he is sporting a different uniform these days!!!

That two-year grace period sure went by fast!

But I thought the addition of Illinois Tech was going to save them from this fate for at least a year until Illinois Tech joins the NACC. Is Illinois Tech not playing in the WIAC this spring, then?

I thought the same thing ... and I think we all believed that was the reason Illinois Tech was added. They are on the WIAC schedule this season ... I'm sure there's an explanation somewhere.

Is it reasonable to assume that the WIAC might only get one team through an at-large bid?

Yes.  Let me look at the Baseball Pool B board.

I would be willing to bet that in most years that the regular season champion would have a pretty decent chance at a Pool B bid while the rest that have solid seasons would then be in contention for a Pool C bid.....

Thanks Cubs, that was my thought as well. In fact that conference going to pool B does far more harm to the other pool b teams than it does to the wiac IMO.

Unless I am understanding it incorrectly, that was my initial thought as well.... That was why I didn't see the benefit of adding Illinois Tech since it would hurt Pool C candidates SOS. 

I guess the one thing that "hurts" is that the WIAC doesn't have that Pool A safety net when/if the time comes that they struggle in the non-conference portion of the schedule and then beat up on each other during league play.
