Baseball At UW?

Interesting piece in The Crapitol Times about eliminating a major embarrassment at the University of Wisconsin — the lack of a baseball program. Referencing the success story at California-Irvine, which did it in 2002 and made the College World Series in five years and drawing on comments made by UW Athletic Director Barry Alvarez, the article shows how it can be done and makes a solid case as to why it should be done.

Now, (UC-Irvine) has not only resurrected its baseball team, but the Anteaters have moved up from Division II to Division I and this year have reached the semifinals of the College World Series.

Question: If Cal-Irvine can do it, why can't UW ... ?
Answer: They can. And should.
