BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) The age-old question has arisen for Indiana's football program: ``Are we there yet?''

After three straight close losses, coach Kevin Wilson's answer is a resounding no.

Wilson believes there is something to be said for almost being there, he just doesn't want his team to be satisfied with it. There's some buzz in Bloomington because the program hasn't been successful enough in recent years for fans to be too upset with the losses, and being close is an improvement.

Competitive might be good enough for the fans, but not for Wilson.

Breaking through won't be easy Saturday at Navy. The Midshipmen (3-3) have bounced back after getting pummeled 50-10 against Notre Dame in Ireland and 34-7 against Penn State and have won three of four, including a 28-21 overtime victory over Air Force two weeks ago.
