  5. Cincinnati Releases Statement About Huck Finn Decision

    From Cincinnati captain Dan Latz:

    Our goal at the beginning of the season was to earn another bid for our region. We put together a schedule that we thought gave us the best chance to earn an extra bid (based on a lot of research.) As it turns out, we achieved this goal. Going to Huck Finn had too many downsides to continue going (injuries, small margin for error, etc.) that we decided it was in our best interest for us — and for our extremely competitive region — to not attend this tournament.

  6. Quick Thoughts On The Cincinnati Situation

    You may not like it, you may think it’s unfair, but the reality is that what Cincinnati has decided to do is perfectly rational. For most college teams, the primary goal of the season is to make it to Nationals. So an obvious secondary goal is getting a strength bid to vastly increase the odds of making that happen.

    Cincinnati did that. They did enough. It may have come via a couple of lopsided wins over a solid Tulane team, and at the expense of some other teams that beat them (UC Santa Barbara, e.g.). But now that they are sitting at #14 with a week left in the season, staring at a tournament in Huck Finn that mostly contains downside for them, other than getting some reps in before the Series, what do you expect them to do?
