If "rumors" are indeed accurate, it sounds as if UW Eau Claire will be reinstating their baseball team in the near future...  This would be a nice addition for the WIAC, especially when you think of the amount of quality baseball talent around the Eau Claire area.

That would be excellent if they do.

Itís official.
Would Finlandia still be permitted to affiliate?

Sure.  Geographically, Finlandia would be a better fit for the UMAC but to use Finlandia as just a bridge to a Pool A bid sounds disingenuous.

I don't see a reason we wouldn't welcome them to remain.  But ultimately it will be their decision.

8 teams makes for a nice balanced schedule.

Exactly, it's to our benefit to have them remain.  I give their athletic department credit.  They may struggle but they don't shy away from competition.  Unlike many other programs in the state.
