Just when I thought I couldn't get any sicker with the state of our baseball program, Shanesy has not so subtly hit the nail on the head. It is a shame that Wofford has to run what should be a signature program in this manner.

Wallace wasn't hired because Wofford couldn't commit the resources to build the program up to his capabilities so we went with a lower cost alternative that allowed us to justify our inadequate investment. It might have been a sound financial move for the athletic department, but it could not run anymore counter to what Wofford bills itself to be all about.

I don't see this particular story as a money issue for Wofford.

The article indirectly points out that SMC has had great success with part-time coaches who have to have second jobs DURING THE SEASON

The real question is, if this coach is as good as advertised, why couldn't we have hired him to coach and "mow grass"?

Money is an issue, but the real problem seems to be a lack of institutional commitment to baseball. If you put Mike Ayers in the dugout, he would find a way to win a few more games.

Been saying it for years. Money is but a sympton (granted, a big one) of a larger problem, but money was NOT the issue with the Tim Wallace situation.
All I can do is shake my head and sigh when I write my check and hope for the best. It is a really sad thing for me. I dwell on it far too much.
