Two players were kicked off the Cornell softball team after the season, and another quite voluntarily. The two athletes were some of the ones speaking to the Daily Sun for the article that came out last week.

The Athletic Department stated that the dismissal was not retaliatory in nature, but the individual players, their parents, a number of teammates and softball alum do not agree.

A family member of a softball player writes in defense of those kicked off the team and against the coach.

A large list of Coach Farlow's former teammates, players and coaches wrote a Letter to the Editor in support of the coach.

The UNC women's basketball team, while dealing with some similar and some different issues to the Cornell softball team, had voiced their concerns to its Athletic Department. As noted over at the Penn board, their softball and volleyball teams had spoken up against their respective coaches over the last year or so.

Cornell, like Penn, have said they have done internal reviews of the complaints and decided against any need for change in coaching staff. UNC ended up having an independent investigation and they found enough supporting information to recommend a change in leadership.

It would be interesting to see if the results would be different at Cornell and Penn if they had independent groups took a look into those programs.
