The biggest "if" I still think about this year is that missed call at Illinois that would've ended the game with a Gopher win and instead the ump misses it and there is no replay there. Just a couple pitches later Illinois walks it off for the win. Switch the result of that game and the battle for the 7/8 spot looks like 7. Michigan State 11-11, 8. Purdue 11-12 9. Minnesota 10-12 10. Illinois 11-13 instead of the Gophers needing quite as many breaks to go their way they would have a little more control.Wow are there a lot of “ifs” in this post!
