Position it as an experiment. You both hate your jobs and this represents an opporunity to shake things up and do something different. Check potential job listings for your wife and present some possibilities. You are not tied down to being close to family due to kids, so you should be enjoying your mobility. Appeal to other passions in her life that align to what MI has to offer (outdoors, beer, sailing, beaches, etc.). Use it as an opportunity to share some of YOUR passions more fully with her (Michigan obvsly, but other stuff, too) and for her and your family to get to know each other a bit better.
It's a great opportunity for you to strike out on your own as a couple and learn to live as a husband and wife without (overly) leaning on her family. It will change the dynamic, and you could make the case that it's for the better.
I'll be frank - if she's pretty tied to family, then it's a tough sell, but not nearly as tough if you had kids. I moved to Chicago away from my family because we had a kid and another on the way and she wanted to be near HER support system. Fortunately for me, I really like Chicago and my company is HQed there.

It was basically an accusation that Nike has its tendrils in way too deep with the AAU scene and can basically use its influence on coaches and AAUE teams to drive top kids to Nike-branded schools, so that those same Nike schools will be more successful than the Adidas and Under Armour schools, putting Nike at the forefront of the conversation.
Same thing could probably be said for all the football camps and programs sponsored by Nike. There was even a story about how Nike bet on a handful of schools (UO, Bama, FSU, osu) to make the inaugural CFB playoff by designing special uniforms before the season even started.

Finally, they've been really amazing since 2008, winning at least 10 games every season, going 80-14 for an amazing win percentage of 85.11%. ohio state, by contrast, went 77-16 during that time period (including vacated games).

|6 weeks 2 days ago||I agree completely||
I was a smart kid, more than capable of succeeding in college, and I did, to an extent. However, I was way too immature to make the best of my college experience, effectively having wasted the first 2 years.
I think the concept of a transition year is a good one for a lot of kids. Many of my colleagues have kids who have done this, and they are all the better for it. Taking a year off from school, experiencing the world a bit more, and being responsible for yourself outside of a school environment I think can help a lot of kids. Whether that involves traveling, volunteerism, or getting a full time job somewhere, it could go a long way toward building a maturity that many kids lack.
I think the stigma of NOT going to college right out of high school is so strong, though, that kids and parents are reluctant to make that plan. Apply to college, get in, and then request a one year deferral. Many colleges will do this, provided you outline a plan and show how that will add to your development and further your contributions to your prospective campus community.
I also have a colleague whose son went to WMU on a track scholarship. But he fooled around too much and she pulled him out after sophomore year. She had him work for a couple years to understand that life isn't about just messing around. He went back to a D-III school, played football for 2 years (and was the nation's 2nd leading rusher his senior year), graduated with honors, and is now working full time and coaching football.
Bottom line: college may be right for a lot of kids, but maybe not "right now"

Asians are very well-represented (some would argue "over-represented") minorities in higher ed.

You don't "know" anything. UGA has just as many national championships in the last 60 years as Michigan does, and 1 more national championship than UCLA.
And they've been significantly better in recent years than our own beloved Michigan. Since 2001, when Richt took over, they've won 10+ games 9 times and finished in the top 10 seven times, with 1 losing season. In that same span, Michigan has won 10+ games only 4 times and finished in the top 10 three times, with 3 losing seasons.
By all reports, even though Richt has never gotten over the hump, he has won with class and integrity.

|8 weeks 3 hours ago||I disagree||
The rule states: " Two players playing the same position may not wear the same number during the game."
This suggests to me that it's not just at the same time, but at any point during the game. This means that if you have 2 QB's who are number 8, one can't start the first half wearing #8 and the other, also wearing #8, start the second half. Because they are the same position, they must wear different numbers if they both want to appear in the game, even if it is not at the same time.
|8 weeks 3 hours ago||I guess I have a different experience||
tl;dr version - My parents are immigrants and we're different from the many generations of white americans who have built legacies in this country.
As the child of immigrants, my sister and I were the first in our family to go to college in the US. The article doesn't echo my experience at all. "Where did your parents go to college" and "What do your parents do" were rarely, if ever, the first questions I heard. I gravitated toward other Asians, as we have a shared (or more similar) experience, growing up as 2nd generation* in the US. It was only after some time that I discovered that some of my friends had parents working in dry cleaners (although, really, that's not particularly uncommon), the post office, restaurants, as janitors, etc. One of my good friends back home has both parents working at the post office.
I do believe the immigrant experience tends to bridge many of the gaps to which this article makes reference. Those of European descent in the US have had generations upon which to build a legacy, so to meet someone at a presitiguous university whose parents have not attended college may be out of the norm.
Immigrant families do not have that history. My father went to university, but his father was a farmer before becoming a pastor. Many immigrants in the 60's and 70's may have gone to college, but found themselves working menial jobs having nothing to do with their engineering or business or fine arts degrees, because that's what was available. Many more never went to college and struck out to the US looking for opportunity. I have 2 uncles who emigrated to the US after high school, never attended any other schooling beyond TOEFL/ESL, and are both now very successful after having worked various jobs (janitorial, cook, dishwasher, dry cleaner, warehouses, factories, etc.) and are sending their kids to college - first generation, as per this article.
And for the record, my wife's family are also immigrants, and she lived in a trailer park as a kid, then a farm (and even though very low income, she felt bad when she compared to her classmates, many of whom were poverty-level). Her parents worked as janitors for a while and, because there was nobody to watch the kids late at night when they were cleaning the buildings, they'd bring my wife and her brothers along, too. So yeah, long and crazy road, but what does it really matter?
*Note: For some reason, east Asians refer the generation that immigrates to the US as "first generation" and the first generation born in the US as "second generation," as in, we're the second generation to live in the US. South Asians (mostly Indian) refer to the first generation born in the US as "first generation." I don't know why the difference, but it's just a thing. So my "second generation" is equivalent to an Indian-American referring to him/herself as "first generation."

It's really the smokiness when you grill or even oven bake the avocados that is the attraction.

Avocado gets smoky, yolk gets runny, and white is almost a poached texture. I hate avocado and I love this.

|8 weeks 1 day ago||UM in-state tuition is about||
UM in-state tuition is about $13k a year. Notre Dame full year is about $26k. Nowhere near a $30k premium. In fact, ND is about $15k less than UM out of state tuition. Figure room, board, books, fees, etc. are a wash.
Northwestern is about $15k/quarter, with 3 quarters per year getting you to about $45k/year. Again, other stuff considered a wash.
I'd say cost is certainly a factor for the parents (and maybe the kid, depending on the loan situation). But a big factor, too, has to be the experience. All three are vastly different from each other in terms of culture, environment, and experience. If all three are relatively close in terms of desired major/program, weigh how much the school vs. cost matter.
College trips are most certainly in order, maybe even having a host for a night/weekend at each respective school. Make sure the kid and parents are prepared with questions of what they're looking for, aid available, etc.

|9 weeks 2 days ago||A couple of responses||
First, it's a maturity issue, mentally and emotionally. Some are more mature than others and make better decisions than others. This is the case whether you're talking about military, NFL, or corporate America.
Second, an 18-20 year old's body is not fully mature. I had a conversation with a US Navy pediatric ER doc in Hawaii once (didn't know the family, but our kids somehow started playing together, so we chatted). It seems the military is sending pediatric docs overseas to take care of the younger soldiers, as they've realized that their bodies are not fully mature and often need a different level of care and expertise than "regular" doctors can give. As a peds doc, he was deployed to the middle east and Afghanistan for that very reason.
Finally, my brother-in-law, a CAPT in the US Navy, will also tell you that the E-1 enlisted sailors really are just kids, for what it's worth.
Being physically able to go to war has nothing to do with whether or not someone is a "grown man" (whatever that ambiguous term really means).

The crazy thing about his season is that he only got 12 carries in his first 3 games combined, and had 5 games this season with fewer than 10 carries. However, in those 5 games, he had 29 carries for 305 yards, at 10.5 yds per carry. Lest anyone think it came over the dregs, two of those games were against SCar and Clemson. He had over 100 yards in his last 7 games, including 156 yards and 7.4 ypc (!) against Florida, 144 yards and 7.6 ypc against Auburn, and 266 yards and 8.1 ypc against Louisville in the bowl game.
Had he played a full season as starter, he would've been over 2000 rushing yards at that pace and be mentioned in the same breath as Melvin Gordon and Ezekiel Elliott. As it is, I have to imagine he's an early front-runner for Heisman along with Elliott.

And as for making presumptions about overuse injuries, he never said "definitely" but did suggest that it was, yes. And then he gave another example of one of his own players. Whether he thinks it or not, I don't see how that statement in any way indicts Michigan's staff. You're looking for a fight where there isn't one. Get over it.

|9 weeks 3 days ago||You don't properly understand||
You don't properly understand what an overuse injury is. It doesn't mean that a "player is overused" but is generally a result of repetitive microtrauma. Doesn't mean Beilein played him too much.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Don't turn this into "Izzo wants kids to get hurt"||
It's not like he's down in his basement doing voodoo spells so opposing players get hurt, or telling his kids to go out and injure them. The fact is that any coach would be at least a little relieved to not have to worry about the other team's star player, which is also why there is so much gamesmanship when it comes to injury reports. Coaches are purposely vague when it comes to releasing injuries to their players b/c they know that means other coaches have to prep for it, possibly making it wasted time not preparing for different looks with different players.

Looking at the draft history, I had forgotten that they also drafted deandre cobb from msu, and that Kenn is the last Michigan guy they drafted - in 1978. Before that, they also took Carl Russ (LB, '75), James Coode (T, '74), and the great Billy Taylor (RB, '72).
