Hoosier Hysteria set for Friday, October 4

080813v

Hoosier Hysteria, Indiana’s annual opening practice that officially tips off the season, has a date for this fall.

Tom Crean announced Thursday night on his Twitter account that the 2013 version of Hysteria will be held on Friday, October 4.

Indiana football will open Big Ten play on Saturday, October 5 at Memorial Stadium against Penn State and it will also be Hall of Fame weekend for the athletic department.

“Save The Date! HOOSIER HYSTERIA will be October 4th,” Crean said on Twitter. “HoF weekend and Indiana vs Penn State in Football. It will be a festive weekend!”

A change in NCAA rules that went into effect this season will allow schools to begin practice six weeks before their opening game.

That means Indiana could begin practice as early as Friday, September 27 if the Hoosiers open the season on the second Friday night in November as they have the past four seasons.

Further details on Hoosier Hysteria will be released at a later date.

    Fridays aren’t so great for those of us coming from the far reaches of the state.

    Today sucks, but in truth, it’s not like we are Purdue. We have a 3 year streak of McDonald’s all americans, and I think the streak lives on in 2014. 2013 is going to be a fun year, and a year in which the team we field in March would probably whip the pants off the team we see at Hoosier Hysteria. In 2014 we are going to be a Final 4 contender, no matter which of these top guards settles at IU. It doesn’t really matter whether it’s Q Snyder, R Johnson, or Exum. Any of them will come off looking like superstars with the #1 point guard in the nation working with them. I really hope the rumors are true and Blackmon and Lyles go to UofL. A bunch of freshman running in to each other for most of the year, and they better hope they don’t play us early on, they’ll get embarrassed. This is not comparable in any way to what UK does every year. Blackmon and Lyle are great, but they aren’t anywhere close to like a Kidd Gilchrist, one and done automatic. They will absolutely play like freshman, and have equivilent years to what Gary Harris just had, good but not like we lost Carmello Anthony. Cheer up everybody,

    Good timing..hope we can get all of our key recruits in (if we have any left by that time): Hey..it’s Indiana and we’re back…all else will pass.

    Gary Harris had an awesome year and Purdue still has a 7 foot beast in the paint. But I agree, we will be fine. This year will be super exciting to watch and it will be nice to not have such high expectations.

    Considering the strong rumors floating of a game vs. Lville at MSG in early 2014, looks like you’ll get your wish. To say they would get embarrassed is huge stretch though. A lot is up in the air concerning the development of this year’s crop of freshmen, Hanner/Jeremy, whether Vonleh stays, etc.

    ” I really hope the rumors are true and Blackmon and Lyles go to UofL. A bunch of freshman running in to each other for most of the year, and they better hope they don’t play us early on, they’ll get embarrassed.”

    I hope not. UL is loaded already. I hope Blackmon reconsiders and commits to us, IF we really aren’t getting Exum. A bunch of freshmen won a national title just two short years ago.
    I think both Blackmon and Lyles are starters no matter where they go.
