Hoosier Headlines for October 17, 2009: Illinois gameday and Hoosier Hysteria edition.

IU's homecoming game against Illinois is tonight and the basketball team began practice last night in front of 13,000 fans.

  • Win against Indiana needed for Illini to salvage season (Kewanee, IL - Star Courier)
  • Hoosiers have fun before getting to work (The Journal Gazette, Fort Wayne, Ind.)
  • A different kind of "Hysteria" (Indiana Daily Student)
  • Indiana, Crean eager to open basketball season (NW Indiana Times)
  • Indiana-Illinois: How low can you go? (IlliniHQ.com)
    The ugly tale of the tape. Of course, Illinois is the only major public university in one of the largest and most affluent states in the country. At least IU football, sharing a smaller state with two other major programs, has an excuse.

  • If the Illini want to win any games in the Big Ten, they have to beat IU (Hail to the Orange)
