Yes she currently does leap over all others out there and if all goes well for her she will replant herself as NPOTY next year.

I have looked everywhere and did not find a single thing about Kelly barnhill not returning her final season. Why spread a rumor like that?

He had the nerve to post this rumor during the WCWS championship weekend. If there was any truth to this rumor it would've been at least some kind of proof online or something. This ain't a random player from a small school, she won a ESPY for female college athlete of the year in 2017!

ESPY? You mean the same award by the company that owns the SEC? I see...

So you believe that they gave her the female college athlete of the year trophy as a sophomore because ESPN has the SEC network, WTF. Its sad that y'all refuse to give her any credit for her success because you all have some personal bias towards her!

What, exactly has Barnhill accomplished at FL?? If she is the biggest name associated with softball, what has she accomplished to earn this?

Are you trying to say that just because she never won a title at Florida that she hasn't accomplished anything? Please tell me that you aren't this dumb. She is a pitcher on team USA, won national POY, been to the WCWS, won an ESPY, etc, etc. You haters need some serious help!

Lots of players have the same or even better resume. I never said I hated KB. I just don’t see how all of you worshippers of her continue to say she is the face of softball but can’t give one specific accomplishment(s) that warrant such a quote. ESPY? Really? Is that what separates her from the rest? GTHOH with that nonsense. With the kind of resume you quoted for her why HASN’T she produced a natty? Maybe because she ISN’T all that?

It’s a team game dumbass. Softball ain’t tennis, boxing or MMA. One person cannot win a title by themself!

Somehow this thread ended up more pathetic than the OP's fake news.

Except for the internet nits, it's irrelevant in NCAA softball. It's a non issue. Get over it, it won't be an issue next year either.

Tell me it ain’t so, Joe? It’s a team game? Someone, maybe you, should let KB know so that she starts pulling her weight and with that powerful resume, start dragging the team with her. As Andy Duframe would say, “don’t be obtuse”.

She likely will get 30 wins with no experienced #2 behind her next year. She had 29 wins this year with Ocasio backing her up.

70-8, .92 ERA, 515.1 IP, 850 K, approx .125 BAA, .75 WHIP

Y'all keep hating on Barnhill like you did Rogers. It's cool.

Lol.  

I love how the goalposts keep moving to fit the individual agendas.  

Espy award -- "That's b/c ESPN controls the SEC."

NPOY--"They cheat for Barnhill/UF/Tim Walton."

"She'll always suck b/c she never won a national championship." 

Poster mentions other pitchers who are considered some of the best in the sport despite never winning a national title.

"She's not as good as them either."

This was a trash post from the very start.

She's the best. If she gave Barnhill an ounce of her superhero-like stoicism and poise from the tons she has stored up, Florida could've been natty champs the last 2 years.

The ESPY is a popularity contest and only shows KB is great at marketing herself.  Illegal pitches aside, at least her other awards were earned on the field.

You keep on proving mine and everyone else's point.  But you seemed to have missed it yourself.

Please enlighten me, how does Kelly Barnhill market herself?  I honestly want to know.  She doesn't say a word other than interviews after games and those little clips they put together for before and during big games.  Where are these amazing marketing skills?  Where's the link between Barnhill/UF/Walton and ESPN that proves all the accusations of favor and bias?  Or is it that you just don't like her for whatever reason and made up a reason/conspiracy theory to justify it.

Like or don't like her, but try to deal in logical, verifiable facts rather than the obvious falsehoods.

This entire thread should have never been made as it was a ridiculous, completely unfounded rumor just thrown out there to continue the Barnhill bashing.  But the haters who have nothing to justify the level of vitriol just keep coming back with more and more baseless accusations and conspiracy theories to continue to fan the flames.

Begging every player even remotely associated with her to vote for her and have all their friends vote for her.  It was the most narcissistic thing I've ever read.  

I don't dislike her as a pitcher.  I wish the same rules applied to her, but that's not her fault.  She's clearly one of the best in the game.

Proof?  

Interview?  Quotes?  Video?  Where exactly was all this begging?   Come on.  You want to throw something like that out there then back it up.  What specific players did she "beg" to vote for her?

You do have a point that I made some assumptions on this.  It may be a coincidence that DD received the email begging for votes and that was only sent only to that one group and there was no effort on KB's part to get it to as many people as possible.  Stating it proved she's a great self-promoter was a reasonable conclusion, however it was still pure speculation and I stated it as fact.  

Even so I feel comfortable with my original statement that winning an ESPY doesn't prove anything other than she's popular.  I'm a lot more impressed by her CoSIDA all american award than an ESPY.

It seems there are a few that seem to take that line. However, the overwhelming sentiment on this board is the opposite. Even from critical posters.

There is at least one fact which isn't debatable: 

Her personal on-field successes are because she is allowed to pitch under a different set of Rules. Thus, the correct perception is, any credit is tainted. 

Agree or not, it's not hate. Any program/Florida or any player/Barnhill at the top of their game will always have detractors. Everybody wants a shot at the Title.

All the rhetoric aside, most understand how good she is. Poster Fresh mostly states it best when he says...most likely nothing will be done about so everybody needs to just move on. 

She's got one more year. While I have personally been critical, I still look forward to watching her play. Another certainty is EVERYBODY will be thankful she's on the Mound come Team USA time.
