Since Tywin's death Cersei has "banished" Kevan Lannister (seemingly the only remaining Lannister with sense), added a 'magic user of ill repute' to the small council, and deposed the High Septon while giving the High Sparrow the thumbs up.
Basically she's attempted to consolidate her own power by replacing competence with extremely dubious allies.
In her mind, for example, the High Sparrow now owes her and thus belongs to her. The High Sparrow doesn't look like the kind of guy that plays by those rules, though. Sure the jailed High Septon was corrupt but corruption is easy to control. Fanaticism isn't.
Qyburn seems loyal at least, but he also seems like the type of guy who ends up getting burned at the stake and all of his friends with him.
I'm sure I've left out a ton and bungled a ton more and my characterization of Cersei's actions regarding Kevan are probably unfair. Point being, Cersei isn't a serious contender. She's possibly the worst ruler since the last Targaryen ruler. Yeah, the guy who named "fire" his champion in a duel and sparked the civil war that left Robert with the throne.
|1 day 16 hours ago||This comment really doesn't jibe with the video I just watched.||
I kind of want to see the original now.
|4 days 19 min ago||Well, crap.||
Normally, I can only make a game a year and I liked to make it those.
|5 days 16 hours ago||Don't get me wrong, I'm in Hennegivensunday's boat.||
She was getting [view points] from the same group of people (nfl people) that said the exact same thing about Harbaugh (staying in the NFL) when Michigan hired him.
It's hard to take that noise seriously.
All of that aside, I agree with you. I don't think, however, that Harbaugh would leave before Michigan was in NC contending form. Doing so would be considered a loss. Harbaugh doesn't like to lose.
|5 days 16 hours ago||Where Harbaugh answered: 'here, at Michigan'||
and she translated that as: "the nfl, obviously."
Yeah, that was kind of stupid. I realize, of course, that most coaches would claim to want to still be where they are in a few years for PR reasons and she claimed to have talked to people. She didn't really reveal any sources for her decision, though, did she?
But, meh. Who cares? Harbaugh leaving, in my opinion, is the only way this team isn't in the NC hunt year in and year out in three years. I don't think you can say that about many coaches.
|1 week 2 days ago||Welcome aboard, Carter.||
Good to see another new recruit.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||OSU, not Oklahoma, Moe.||
|3 weeks 2 days ago||TD Dukes.||
Go blue (team)!
|3 weeks 2 days ago||That throw.||
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Hell yeah.||
|3 weeks 4 days ago||It's not what you're saying, it's how you say it, how often||
you repeat it, and the stupid straw man you attach to your detractors.
People aren't taking offense that you're championing Malzone.
I'm fairly certain you're simply pulling some lines through mgoblog waters, but I said the above on the off chance that you aren't.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Scrolled all the way down looking for Hicks.||
He was not for everyone (or even most) but he was very good. Very dark, though. He's not what you'd call a fan of certain belief systems, either.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||You're probably right.||
I'm hoping Harris was told he'd have to sit a year (if there is an injury update) and that's the end of it.
That being said, hopefully, there is no news at all. That would probably be the best scenario.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||That's what I thought too initially (and you're probably right),||
but the term seems to be used a lot in the context of medical redshirts, from what I can tell.
I'm skimming, though.
It's really hard to find ncaa rules on the internet. Anyways, apparently the term "medical redshirt" doesn't actually exist.
They're called "hardship waivers."
I think the exact term Henson used was "medical hardship," though. Which might be the actual term for retiring a kid from the sport.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Henson reported that Harris had been asked to take a||
medical hardship. So if that's the case it looks like they would be going for the sixth year.
I don't think Henson is verboten here, but if I'm wrong feel free to zap this.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I actually really like that.||
Which is a pretty rare occurrence for commercials that involve talking birds.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Please do.||
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I'm finding it a tad hard to complain about her form...||
other than she needs to keep her elbow above her shoulder when throwing.
|4 weeks 6 hours ago||His comment,||
He wasn't sporting that bad boy until today.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||On the flip side, it's pretty impressive that he created such a||
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah, I saw that. I can't edit it because it was replied to.||
I couldn't find another copy of the video for the guy that asked below. Mgovideo's version is also down. I didn't see anything on google either.

|7 weeks 3 days ago||I dunno. You'd think you'd go for a bigger pay out than||
'I have the playbook. Do you guys want to see?' after five weeks of credibility building. Assuming he is a troll he needs to work a little harder on his end game.
On the other hand, spending a month becoming a mgoblogger without clearly tipping his hand shows both dedication and skill.
B to B- from me.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Ohio state isn't as good as Michigan academically.||
I attended a school from which I can say that, according to you.
(and I'm one of about a thousand on this site).
|8 weeks 5 days ago||My youtube video post in response to Harbaugh's presser||
(Edit: as an aside, I gave Kenny G way too much crap as a kid. He isn't bad).
|8 weeks 5 days ago||The term 'prodigal son' is almost, colloquially, synonymous||
with 'related person that has been away' now.
Language is a living entity, or something.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Just a bit.||
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah, it was bad for me as well during the coaching search.||
If I was watching a ten minute video online I would literally tab over to mgoblog to hit refresh four or five times before the video was over.
Work related internet research was virtually impossible.
As it stands currently, I still just leave mgoblog open on a tab all day.

1) Jordan winning his first championship (namely him holding the trophy). '91
2) Douglas taking over the WWF (WWE?) reffing duty that had been assigned to Tyson until Tyson lost that fight against Douglass. It was only memorable because my Uncle informed me that Douglas would end up clocking a guy before the bout was over because it was all rigged and that was exactly what happened (I was pretty young).
3) The Bills comeback against the Oilers in 93. I was an Oilers fan.
4) Vincy Young v. USC national championship game
5) Lloyd Carr's first game (and my first game as a Michigan fan despite having attended the school for some time at that point).
(being at the first UTL trumps every single one of them, honestly, so that's actually number one for me).
