Eric Pankowski and Ward Roberts, hosts of the popular HoosierHysterics! basketball podcast, launched the Hoosier Hysterics NIL Collective in August 2021 because they “love Indiana” and they “know NIL is a huge deal.” After its launch, the Hoosier Hysterics NIL Collective quickly garnered national attention and the support of notable IU alumni. This includes Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, who publicly supported the collective. “Simply put, if current players know there is real opportunity to do well financially in NIL opportunities at IU, they will be less likely to leave early or transfer,” Pankowski said. “And if recruits across the nation know that Indiana is a place where the fanbase as a whole supports them financially with NIL opportunities once they get to IU, then we will win recruitments that we otherwise may have lost.” HHNIL says all contributions are combined into one pot in order to make significant and impactful and meaningful NIL deals. HHNIL has already hosted several fan-favorite events, including the first-ever men’s basketball Fan Fest which drew more than 3,000 in attendance.
