When I think of middle of nowhere, I think more of U of Iowa, which is an hour from Davenport, 2 hours from Des Moines and 4 hours from Chicago. Bloomington is relatively remote relative to other cities, but that's the situation for many, if not most, college towns.
Yea, it depends on your definition. But for me (and others as well), Bloomington definitely walls into the middle of nowhere. The combination of being over and hour from a major city and being surrounded by general nothingness makes it qualify.
