07:30 AM ET 11.05 | Before he arrives, Ameer Abdullah's words have likely landed in Ann Arbor. "Michigan fans are nasty, man. They're ruthless. And I wouldn't have it any other way." What did they say? "I think you have an idea," Abdullah said, drawing laughter. Abdullah then had to be reminded that he scored a touchdown at the Big House, coming on an unusual double-option run, when he took a pitch from running back Rex Burkhead, who'd taken a pitch from Taylor Martinez. "It was kind of overshadowed after they beat us by 30," Abdullah said. "No one was talking about the double-option two years ago." ... A question about whether Abdullah likes Michigan's fight song got him going some more. "Me, honestly, I'm not a big fan of Michigan," he said. "Nothing would make me happier than to go up there and shut them up."

TSUN's run defense is pretty good. Front 7 fast and active. I think Abdullah will have a tough day.

I bet they now feel the same way? Isnt that the goal everytime you go on a away game is to shut them up?

Judgment Day for both Bo Peep and Flounder.

Well done Harley. Sounds like a great plot for a children's book.

Being a "Hail Mary" away from another loss doesn't shut anybody up.

Hoke is safe for the next 2 years. His contract is up in 2016. A decision must be made in 2015 to extend his contract or not. Hopefully, Hoke and his staff develop the young talent they have and figure out a way to get Michigan back to respectability / competing for B1G titles again.

The 2015 schedule is favorable. If Hoke and staff can develop this young talent, that would be the year to excel.

In the present situation, barring some favorable twists of fate, I cannot see Their Nebs defeating the Angry Weasels in the Big House. I just can't see that happening...

Nebraska sucks. Michigan sucks. Who cares at this point?

One of the Detroit media guys asked Dantonio if he was pulling for Michigan this week end. Dantonio smiled and said something like "we (MSU) can't lose, no matter who wins."

I'd add a smirk to that smile.
