Doesn't need a release to not play.  Is she transferring?  That's the only reason to ask for a release.

Good lord, this board will be fun if true


I did hear she received a lot of threats on social media and had bullying but this would surprise me


There seemed to be a lot of tension between her and Walton this season for whatever reason

I don't know how it works I just heard this rumor. Kind of strange someone would say if unless there is a little bit of truth to it.

OMG, that public dressing down by Walton in front of God and the national TV audience takes on new importance if this is true.  And might in fact be a reason.

But wait a sec... don't have the time just at the moment to check out whether softballjunkie223 is a credible source... anybody know?

If true and it has something to do with Walton, that must mean he's staying.  Why would she not hold off until she knows who the coach is?  Or maybe she's trying to get him to leave...

Texas has apparently reached out to Walton. My guess is that they are throwing bank at him but I am not sure if he jumps

Money talks though



But this is where I parked my car

Barnhill can sit out a year, work with the National Team, and then transfer to Texas to play for Walton. We will take them both. [biggrin]

I’ve heard that a million dollar contract is in the works to get Walton to Texas. No idea if this is true. I guess we will find out soon enough.

If what I heard is true there must have been more to it than just the Walton barnhill fiasco in the wcws.

Who here said she should transfer just a couple days ago?  And, there is a huge difference between saying she will not play her senior season and asking for a release.

Frankly, considering all the conditioning she did by swimming and doing meal prep, this season was a disappointing one for Kelly. I do like how she came back after last season and had a list of 13 things to improve by. I read in another post that, if kelly does return for her senior season and these are all rumors, that she should take the summer off from team USA and work on her pitches more (especially a changeup) with her dad. I believe that Kelly should 100% do this as it will only benefit her.

Athletes get dressed down on national TV by coaches a lot. Maybe Kelly can't handle that any better than she handles adversity in any game she is pitching.

well, is the person YOU heard it from a credible source?  Or the person THEY heard it from?  I love rumors, but this is on a level that you should make sure it's credible before you post it.

SEC will be completely wide open next season should she leave. No offense to Florida's incoming kids but losing Barnhill and Ocasio would be really difficult to overcome

We heard over and over, that a $100 million contract was on the table and Saban was going to Texas. We heard Texas offered massive contracts to O'Sullivan and a couple others in baseball. I will believe they will actually hire a top coach in their sport when they actually ever do it instead of just talk about it.

 I know, Texas has special pitchers' cletes that are highly magnetic, and an iron strip under the pitchers mound that keeps a pitcher's pivot foot from flying up into the air.

Really?  You think people don't start or spread rumors with no truth to them?

What did I miss with Barnhill and Walton at the WCWS? I didn’t get to watch Florida’s games that much

Wow to this whole thread....

Posting about a "rumor"? Figure out if this is credible before posting something like this.

At the very least title it as a rumor instead of a statement of fact.

That was me, Janie.

I wrote that KB should transfer to Oklahoma for her senior year.
She'd become a better pitcher under Gasso and Lombardi...  and she would have a much more enjoyable experience.

Maybe she reads this forum...

If true, I don't blame her. He dressed her down in front of her teammates, nearly 9,000 fans in-person, and millions of viewers on ESPN. Note that she was absent at their final presser.

The only coaches I've seen do anything similar - Woody Hayes (FB), Bobby Knight (BB), Mick Haley (VB), and Jim Moore (VB) - eventually were fired. Unthinkable that Gasso, Tarr, or any of the other coaches at the WCWS would have mistreated any of their players like that. His behavior was shameful.

She was named today as the Google Cloud Academic All-American of the Year. She has other options.

The camera captured Walton catch Barnhill coming off the mound and laying into her after an inning in the UCLA game.
