Indiana 23, Western Michigan 19: Hoosiers start fast, force Bronco fumble to preserve win.

The above headline could have been written last week as well.  Like last week, IU's offense looked great in the first half and bogged down in the second half.  Like last week, IU had numerous chances to put the game away but still had to sweat on the last play.  Like last week, a nice defensive play (last week it was Ray Fisher, this week it was Greg Middleton) forced a game-saving fumble.  The huge number of penalties is a major concern.  Still, WMU is a better team that EKU, so I'll take it as some sort of progress.  I'll be back with a more detailed recap once the stats are available, but for now, 2-0 is better than any available alternative.
