Video: Illini, Gophers bring the dugout antics

During Friday’s Big Ten Baseball Tournament elimination game between Illinois and Minnesota, players from both teams looked like they were rather loose. During the game, Minnesota’s players had some fun behind the back of Minnesota coach John Anderson. For Illinois, several players acted out a little pantomime before the game, with one player playing the role of a dog. Just watch the videos in this post to see what we’re talking about.

Also during this game, many of the Illini players stood together at the top of the dugout steps in rows of two when their teammates bat, almost as if they were a choir or a “living” team photo. Sometimes they clapped in unison, other times they appeared to be ringing hand bells. Here’s the “choir” shot.
