Sounds like a very good test right out of the gate. I would rather have a tough game to start the season than some cream puff that dosen't reveal any of your team's weaknesses. Remember last year's opener, compared to Iowa's opener, I think it was a huge factor in the outcome vs. Iowa.
Granted, the Illinois State game wasn't so hot, but you're right. We probably could've put up comparable numbers to Iowa in the Ball State game, especially since half of Ball State's team was suspended due to some academic issue.
