And Earl Bruce referred to it as the "darkest day in school history" as I recall.
I really like what Wilson's done, but quite honestly IU's best hope to being a consistently decent program is for a Big 2/Little 10 dichotomy in the conference.
IU basketball went through this about 2 years ago when the B1G Ten had no great teams but 9 teams that were about a step and a half ahead of Indiana.
IU basketball recovered of course, but there are a lot more structural issues that make it hard for IU football to take a similar trajectory.
So I'll settle for never coming within a touchdown of THE Ohio State University if it also means that IU is between 6-6 and 8-4 every year.
Enough IU talk.
