If they were actually deciding to play v. sit I would imagine they both are leaning towards going pro. They could have received some info that one or both would be day 2+ but I thought the NFL advisory board info came in January.

This is good to hear.  I expect that Florida is going to come to play in this game and Michigan is going to have to play at a high level to win it.  Having both of these guys would be a really good sign.

I hope they play, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Harbaugh says a few days before the game they are both “working through something” and they don’t end up playing.

I still think Long leaves for the NFL based on the year he just had. Hard to imagine him having a better year, especially if there is a down fall in the pass rush. I am not sure how many corners would go ahead of him though and what next year looks like, but Long has been everything we hoped for.

That's good news. I wouldn't be surprised if either still decided to go to the draft; I hope we can hang on to at least one of them for next year. 

"Program in disarray" narrative takes a hit.
