Maybe not. Not sure what kind of relationship Anderson had with Cornell but it's possible she doesn't think she can be an effective pitcher in the SEC. Cornell gave up 30 HR...in the CAA. She had 1 quality win...against Fla State.  Those numbers won't translate well in the SEC. Not exactly job security for Anderson. Could be she doesn't have the money either.

Seems like bit of a desperation move by Alabama but understandable after losing Osorio. They've got no proven arm and looks like they may have to accelerate Fouts transition quicker than most Freshman. Cornell will have the benefit of Murphy & Staff. Also Alabama's total team will be a MAJOR upgrade to what Cornell is used to having behind her. 

Still, those 30 HR @ sea level are bothersome.

Agree; Can't see Cornell having success in the SEC.  The 30 HR's are the result of the fact she's an "up" pitcher who misses too often.  Many times she's 'effectively wild' using 130+ pitches to get through 7 innings against mid-major teams.  She's more of a 'thrower' than a pitcher.  I liked Dandola much better.  Her drop will give her chance all the time as she's going to keep the ball in the park.

Where is Dandola transferring?

I would expect Cornell to be able to develop more and have a more effective rise ball with Murphy and staff.

As for Dandola, she hasn't transferred anywhere yet, but I could see her going to JMU or somewhere in the Big 10/ACC, or not transferring at all, but who knows.

Good luck to her at Alabama....Obviously not the news any of us were hoping for.  

Thank you for two solid years of service, Sarah Cornell!!!

A possible landing spot for Dandola could be Syracuse as well.

It sure shows that Alabama is desperate. She's a decent pitcher, throws hard with little movement. Murphy is no longer a big force because all he is getting is junior college transfers and pitchers jumping ship from a mid major program.

True about the inter-conference transfer BUT Dandola is a much better pitcher then Bursches. The last few weeks Bursches stats show that she was lit up by the better teams.

Please do not be like that....

I am extremely disappointed and feel perhaps a little stabbed in the back.  But, I understand that this is part of the game. 

Win or lose, there was never a moment that I felt she was giving less than 100 percent.  That is all I can ever ask of any student-athlete.  

So yeah, the news sucks, but I am not going to rip into the kid over it.  It demeans me, as well as the HU fan base.   Have to be better than that!

He's got a high-profile freshman coming in from Kentucky, Montana Fouts.  I haven't seen her in travel ball in a couple of years, but I would take her HS stats with a serious grain of salt.  She's very good, but she pitched against no competition until state tournament time every year.

I think Buresch is a better pitcher than Dandola. She had a lower ERA and played A LOT better than Dandola in the JMU-HU series. Dandola gave up like 5 HR in that series.

She did NOT have a lower ERA
1.96 for JMU kid
1.88 for Hofstra kid

1.24 WHIP for JMU kid
1.02 WHIP for Hofstra kid


.240 Batting Avg Against for JMU Kid
.221 Batting Average Against for Hofstra kid

43 Earned Runs for JMU kid
39 Earned Runs for Hofstra kid

47 Walks for JMU kid
28 Walks for Hofstra kid

2 Saves for JMU kid
5 Saves for Hofstra kid

Conference Championships for JMU kid and the Regionals were a marked difference in favor of the Hofstra kid. These are just the numbers that are on line. I have no other insight other then that to go by.

Then Dandola won the CAA Tournament MVP with two wins over JMU, followed by a perfect game in the NCAA Regional.

JMU on the other hand seemed hesitant to go to Buresch at all in the postseason and when she did come in, she got shelled in both conference tournament games against HU and then got lit up again by Tennessee.  

By the end of the season, Dandola had an identical record (18-5) and a lower ERA (1.88 vs. 1.96).

Can the big bad Wolf of the SEC leave the poor little CAA alone.  The last two coaching hires in the SEC are CAA coaches.  Now Cornell is leaving, Auburn is saying it's prayers that Megan Good will leave Auburn and join Dean in the plains. (VERY unlikely).

You guys are the best of the best, leave the CAA alone!

Has it been tweeted out?  Or written somewhere?

I just checked her twitter and did not see anything.

There's an orange emoji added to her Instagram bio now. Clever.

Thank you....

I just looked and saw that all HU related stuff on her twitter has been removed/replaced.

Congrats to Cuse for getting the transfer, but isn't this a step backwards? 

Joining a team under .500 in conference, didn't make the NCAA tournament, had less home runs as a team than Alloca had by herself last year. They just lost their associate head coach (Goler) to Penn State, the pitching coach (Kramer) is entering her second year. I will say they do have a nice pitching staff with addition. But it hardly seems like a desirable environment.

So at this point, Scarpato heads into the fall as our ace?
