  1. Here’s a way off topic question. Decades ago Bloomington was referred to as “the gulch”.

    Chet definitely knows what he’s talking about: There’s a book for kids by Anne Isaacs (illustrations by Dan Santat) with the title: “Ghosts of Luckless Gulch”. It’s all about about Hoosier Football, and its past coaches, one chapter per coach. From James H Horne and James H Sheldon through Bob Hicks to Gerry DiNardo, Bill Lynch and now Mastermind Wilson has his own little section. Very funny book.

  2. ^ Wilson is in there because he broke the record yesterday.

    But: he didn’t do it alone.

    There’s a tradition he subscribed to.

    So he doesn’t deserve all the credit.

  3. One more confirmation on “The Gulch” — I seem to recall “The Colonel” on WTTS in the mid-70s using the phrase as well as “BloomingGulch”. Probably has a long history.
