RE: State of ETSU Team Sports
Absolutely correct on all fronts. Tony Skole makes 88,000 dollars a year and after 17 completed seasons has one conference championship and a sub .500 record as a head coach. Why he hasn't been terminated is beyond me unless he has pictures of people in compromising positions. That's the only message board logical explanation for him still having a job when they fired Karen Kemp who had MORE conference championships and postseason appearances but the record was roughly the same in the same data sample.
He needs to go.

The money isn't important to me. I would bet the $88,000 per year that we pay Skole is in the bottom 25% of the country (or at least the southeast) for a Division 1 Head Coach. Plus he's been here forever so I'm sure that has gradually increased over time. The bottom line is simple, Baseball can be a competitive program at ETSU. It can compete for conference championships and regional births. If it can be done at Mercer, Samford, and Western Carolina it certainly can be done here. Those places aren't loaded with huge resources. We lack one thing.....leadership. Tony is a fine man, but this isn't about that. I find it completely unbelievable that he is still our baseball coach after last season. Also, we lost the better part of our lineup so this year is sure to be more of the same. Its just very disappointing because I know the program could do so much more.
