Week 1 showed that the Big Ten is a conference that has good teams at the top and some quality teams even trickling down toward the bottom.

Indiana isn’t known as a powerhouse, but the Hoosiers did beat Ball State to open the season 34-24. The win wasn’t overwhelmingly impressive, but not every team can say it is 1-0 at this point.

Just ask Tennessee, who lost to Georgia State.

The Hoosiers certainly have things to work on going into Week 2 and one of those is tackling. Against Ball State, Indiana counted as many as 25 missed tackles.

Ahead of the Week 2 game against Eastern Illinois, Hoosiers coach Tom Allen talked about the tackling issue during his weekly press conference:

If Indiana wants to compete with the big boys and pull off some — what would be considered — upsets this season, tackling can’t be an issue. Allen, of course, knows this.
