"There were a lot of great hits, cheap shots. It's part of the rivalry."
"They ran their mouths ... it just put fuel on the fire. We talked about it a lot."
"When I was recruited here I was told, 'Don't lose to Michigan State'."
"We have to go out next week and do our job."
"We were balanced. We established the run early, and when they gave us the opportunity we hit the big pass."
Henne on playing at PSU: "I was recruited by them, and I've been in that stadium many times. I have friends who play there. So it'll be exciting."
"Michigan has always built off its defense. We are trying to live up to that."
Adams on his interception: "They lined up in that formation, and I knew where they were going to throw it. I just thought, 'That ball is mine'."
On being tired: "We look forward all year to playing just 12 games ... so we look forward to each and every one of them."
Hart on his ankle:"It's all right. It's not a sprain. It just got twisted a little." Hart was moving around the press area after the game as usual."
"We did what we wanted: getting a lead. And what we wanted to do then was to run the clock."
"Our defense stood tall against a great rushing team."
"If you look at great defensive team ... the offense is running the clock and not turning it over, and special teams are doing a good job -- Zoltan Mesko did a good job punting today. It all fits in -- it's about TEAM."
Carr on Hart: "It was a typical Hart game. He's going to bleed you. He turns a 1 yard game into 4-5, a 4 yard game into 10. He has vision and balance."
Car asked to look ahead: "You're never where you want to be. As the saying goes, you're getting better or else you're getting worse. If you don't prepare on a day to day basis, you're going to get beat. We have a lot of guys who have been around a long enough that they understand that."
Carr on Tyler Ecker: "He's day to day, I'm hooping he'll be back (for PSU)."
Carr on Ross Ryan, on why he's not punting or kicking off: "Health-wise he's been struggling ... he's not kicking it like he did before."
