Lots of "Big Ten" grads, and they still follow their own college football teams after they get here, and in neighborhoods like Lincoln Park there are different bars catering to followers of different teams -- if you're U of M, you go to this bar, if you're Ohio State, you go to this other one, etc.
I stumbled into a Missouri bar a couple years ago on the pub crawl, my little sister went there. Kinda weird having a bar that cheers for Mizzou in Chicago.

It's been cool for a long time for kids out of college to gravitate to Chicago. My cousin i graduated with at NIU lived in Chicago after college and i spent alot of weekends there in the late 80's/ early 90's. I'm more of a country mouse though, i'm not a hussle & bustle kinda guy.
