ESPN’s Sage Steele to Emcee Hoosier Hystera


From IU Sports Info:

The Indiana University Athletics Department will hold its annual Hoosier Hysteria presented by Smithville on Saturday, October 20 in Assembly Hall. Sage Steele, a 1995 graduate of IU and an ESPN co-host and reporter since 2007, will serve as emcee for the event which features the IU men’s and women’s basketball teams.

Admission is free and doors open at 4 p.m., and will remain so until Assembly Hall reaches capacity.  The men’s and women’s teams will sign autographs from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. with fans allowed to have one item signed per player.  The program will begin at 7 p.m.  The varsity shop and concession stands also open at 4 p.m.

”Hoosier Hysteria will be an unbelievably exciting night and I strongly encourage our fans to come early because we will not be able to admit anyone after the capacity of Assembly Hall has been reached,” said IU Vice President and Director of Athletics Fred Glass.

The significance of Hoosier Hysteria for each team should ensure an unforgettable evening.  First-year women’s coach Curt Miller will get his first opportunity to address Hoosier Nation in Assembly Hall and fifth-year men’s coach Tom Crean brings in a squad which is ranked #1 by several organizations and is coming off a Sweet Sixteen appearance last year. In addition, sophomore All-American Cody Zeller has been tabbed as the 2012-13 National Preseason Player of the Year by the Sporting News and CBSSpors.com and all five starters return from a team which finished 27-9.

Details of each team’s appearance are being finalized and will be released prior to the event. Though admission is free, fans are encouraged to bring a canned food item which benefits the Hoosier Hills Food Bank.

Tickets remain on sale for the general public for four Holiday Break men’s basketball games.  Tickets are available for Ball State (Nov. 25), Mt. Saint Mary’s (Dec. 19), Florida Atlantic (Dec. 21), and Jacksonville, Dec. 28. The mini series prices for four games are $139 for main level seats and $60 for IU students.  Single game prices for Ball State are $40 (main level), $26 (balcony) and $15 (IU student).  For the other three games they are $33 (main level), $25 (balcony) and $15 (IU student). To order, visit the IU Athletics Ticket Office in Assembly Hall which will be open from 9 a.m. thru the event that day, call 1-866-IUSPORTS or visit IUHoosiers.com.

Women’s basketball season and single game tickets also are on sale with season tickets ranging from $153 (courtside), $51 (adult), $17 (youth and senior citizens).

    Big night for ESPN. The only thing that means a hill of beans to the Hoosiers is not allowing the hype destroy the bitter taste that should still be in their collective mouths, and the hunger that should remain in pit of their guts, the embarrassment and ridicule most the Establishment was relishing in when our program hit bottom.

    I’d much rather have the “hysteria” of beating Kentucky by 20 points in Lexington(or Louisville, or anywhere) during the holidays than this needless sideshow that elevates us to greatness before we’ve completed the task: proving IU Basketball is on a search and destroy mission those that foolishly believed they would not pay for witch hunts and betting against the young men that believe in candy-stripes.

    Don’t forget Daniel Moore, VJ, Pritch, Kyle Taber, Bobby Capobianco, Jeremiah Rivers, and all those that gave more. They endured the brutal treatment, the “you suck” comments, the “worst defender in all of college basketball” mockery from those professionals that thought IU was going to buried for a decade…Now its our turn. But its only our turn because throughout the blowouts and outmatched beatings, Hoosiers never left the court without their undaunted pride intact.

    A moment in the sun tomorrow simply because a handful of young men that refused to ever stop believing in Indiana. Cody and Company, please remember the mission and show them where they can stick the “prominence” they deemed we had lost.

    Of course we’d all trade this for a 20 point beat down of a rival… But it isn’t needless or pointless. This is just the kind of thing that recruits love to see. It does nothing for the current team, but it certainly doesn’t hurt the future of the program.

    That is why it is called Hoosier Hysteria. It just not done like that anywhere else. ESPN knows that and as Geoff stated any recruits attending this year or in 40 years will know it is special at Indiana.
