Hoosier Hysteria, the annual tip-off to the Indiana basketball season, takes place Saturday, October 22 in Bloomington as Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall doors will open at 5 p.m. ET with the event beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET.

According to a release from Indiana, fans who arrive by 6 p.m. ET will receive a free men’s calendar schedule poster.

ESPN college basketball analyst Seth Greenburg will serve as the emcee of this year’s Hoosier Hysteria. E! personality Catt Sadler hosted Hysteria last season.

Hysteria will feature skits, skills contests, scrimmages and opportunities for autographs. Admission is free, but fans are encouraged to bring a canned good to donate to the Hoosier Hills Food Bank.

In previous years, Hoosier Hysteria has been streamed online via BTNPlus. No details have been released yet on streaming plans for this year’s Hysteria.

    Seth Greenburg? I think we should get an online petition to have Alex serve as the emcee.

    Or the greatest Hoosier that ever lived. Don Fischer.

    No offense to the great Alex Bozich, but…….DON FREAKIN’ FISCHER!

    I was hoping the details would include who would be in the dunk and 3PT contests.

    Does anyone know around what time you should plan to show up to get good lower level seats? I’m not looking to be courtside but I’d love to have great seats for my kids’ first HH!

    Better yet, what recruits will be there Alex?

  • Nothing wrong with Seth Greenburg here. He’s a major recognized voice in the college hoops world. More importantly, he’s always been great towards the Hoosiers, in my opinion. It’s good to have friends like these. I hope the fans warm to him quickly. Not a bad choice at all.

  • I’d be really surprised if he ever agreed to that. Doesn’t seem like his type of format. However…he could make some sort of cameo appearance. Would be a great voice to hear at the very beginning, which would really get the place rocking.

    Will Wilkes and Romeo Langford be at Hoosier Hysteria this year?

  • HardRockHoosier

    With all due respect to Alex… U R kidding of course? While we all respect and love Alex.. He is not really known beyond ITH.. Seth is a Nationally known broadcaster/analyst.. I think he’s a very good choice. Wouldn’t you hate to see it be, Dickie V? You were really kidding weren’t you…
