Hoosier Hysteria history available on demand

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indiana High School Athletic Association’s historic 100th annual boy’s state basketball championship game is just 26 days away. In the meantime, hoops fans who want to relive the greatest title games in Hoosier Hysteria history can now watch Bobby Plump’s last shot and other classic Indiana basketball moments on demand.

Bright House Networks and Comcast today announced a deal to broadcast IHSAA’s video vault. For no extra charge, Bright House Networks’ customers can watch classic games on Local On Demand Channel No. 600. Comcast’s digital subscribers can access the IHSAA games in the “Get Local” category of its On Demand library.

Available games include the biggest upset in tournament history, the 1954 title contest between Muncie Central and tiny Milan. Plump hit the game winner with just three seconds left on the clock to give Milan a 32-30 victory. That game inspired the film “Hoosiers.”

Five other classic games are also available. Eighteen more will be accessible later this month. Bright House Networks and Comcast will both broadcast the 2010 boy’s tournament March 27 on Channel 81: HomeTown Sports Indiana.

  • U-Verse?
    I wish that Hometown Sports would be offered on AT&T's U-Verse. Maybe it's the fact that U-Verse compete's with Cable is why it's not carried on U-Verse. :)

  1. With Pence running the ship good luck with a new government building on the site. He does everything on the cheap except unnecessary roads line a new beltway( like we need that). Things like state of the art office buildings and light rail will never be seen as an asset to these types. They don't get that these are the things that help a city prosper.

  2. Does the $100,000,000,000 include salaries for members of Congress?

  3. "But that doesn't change how the piece plays to most of the people who will see it." If it stands out so little during the day as you seem to suggest maybe most of the people who actually see it will be those present when it is dark enough to experience its full effects.

  4. That's the mentality of most retail marketers. In this case Leo was asked to build the brand. HHG then had a bad sales quarter and rather than stay the course, now want to go back to the schlock that Zimmerman provides (at a considerable cut in price.) And while HHG salesmen are, by far, the pushiest salesmen I have ever experienced, I believe they are NOT paid on commission. But that doesn't mean they aren't trained to be aggressive.

  5. The reason HHG's sales team hits you from the moment you walk through the door is the same reason car salesmen do the same thing: Commission. HHG's folks are paid by commission they and need to hit sales targets or get cut, while BB does not. The sales figures are aggressive, so turnover rate is high. Electronics are the largest commission earners along with non-needed warranties, service plans etc, known in the industry as 'cheese'. The wholesale base price is listed on the cryptic price tag in the string of numbers near the bar code. Know how to decipher it and you get things at cost, with little to no commission to the sales persons. Whether or not this is fair, is more of a moral question than a financial one.
