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. I would not vote for Bayh if he did run. I also wouldn't vote for Pence. My guess is that Bayh does not have the stomach to oppose persons on the far left or far right. Also, outside of capitalizing on his time as U. S. Senator (and his wife's time as a board member to several companies) I don't know if he is willing to fight for anything. If people who claim to be in the middle walk away from fights with the right and left wing, what are we left with? Extremes. It's probably best for Bayh if he does not have the stomach for the fight but the result is no middle ground.

  2. JK - I meant that the results don't ring true. I also questioned the 10-year-old study because so much in the "health care system" has changed since the study was made. Moreover, it was hard to get to any overall conclusion or observation with the article. But....don't be defensive given my comments; I still think you do the best job of any journalist in the area shedding light and insight on important health care issues.

  3. Probably a good idea he doesn't run. I for one do not want someone who lives in VIRGINIA to be the governor. He gave it some thought, but he likes Virginia too much. What a name I cannot say on this site! The way these people think and operate amuses me.

  4. Kent definitely has talent and he may even "win" the afternoon drive time competition, but do we really need 3 local sports talk shows? Can't we get just one show with a national presence?!? I loved Doug Gottlieb in that slot and have now switched back to music. How many times can we talk about Hibbert's implosion or Reggie Wayne's knee?? All these guys know national sports, but it always seem to pull right back to Indiana sports (x3).
