I got a little excited but that link doesn’t really make it sound definitive. We have known they are practicing. Anyway, let’s hope.

 I think both are gone. But don’t get too excited now B1G or bust, Ambry Thomas is going to be solid. Zordich/Brown will have no problem finding a suitable replacement from the talented returning second and third year players... maybe St Juste or spider Sims or Vincent Gray. 

 There is one piece not coming back to our chief rival who is definitely not leaving voluntarily -  🤥 urban Meyer

Sorry, but ryan day is not scary

Definitely not the same situation - and I'm not saying they won't play.

 

...just at this point, with any player (not just at Michigan) that feels the need to announce they're going to play - I'll be uncertain.

 

It's getting sort of like when coaches guarantee they aren't interested in any other job... which means about a 50/50 chance they're leaving for another job.

Honestly, Bush never said he was playing.  In the interview he said something along the lines of "I would definitely like to play in the Bowl Game."  The Rose Bowl was still possible at the time and he never really said he was "going to play."  I got excited when that was posted and then saw the interview and remember thinking that he really did not say what was attributed to him.

Neat. Hopefully the owning of Florida continues. There's very few teams who we've had the pleasure of maintaining constant dominance over recently. With MSU and PSU's rise, it's kind of down to Minnesota, Indiana, and Florida. Let's keep it going.

I don't know if anyone is right or wrong yet. We'll find out when the defense runs on the field Dec 29th. Personally, If I were Harbaugh I'd tell them both to not announce a single thing before the game, either way. You want Florida to have to prepare and game plan for our difference makers. Kind of the same thing as not announcing a QB until the last minute

.....but the program is in disarray, everyone is transferring, we are losing out on recruits and nobody is playing in the bowl game. Sorry that was two days ago/Maizen coloured glasses view!!

 

Go Blue!

Thank Christ. I am so sick of hearing the bad news that has deadened the outcome of this season as if it were a disaster after Ohio State. Today's recruiting class announcements are so exhilarating that nothing else truly matters because this program is alive, well and doing fine.

Well, this is some good news amongst the other good news. 

After hearing about Bush, I kind of wondered about these two, but I'll be excited to see them out there on the 29th.

Best guess is that both will wait to hear what the NFL guys say. If they hear that both (or one) are a Day 1 or 2 pick, they leave. If they hear Day 3 or undrafted, they stay and work on what the NFL guys say they need to work on. 

Similar to Shea in that regard I'd imagine.

My understanding is that Long has the best chance to return.  Both are practicing and planning on playing,  I wouldn’t be shocked if one or both are dinged up and don’t play thought.  Expect Vincent Gray to play next year, it’s my understanding that BSJ hadn’t played much at all the last two years(injuries). Won’t be surprised if he never plays st U of M
