Here is a link to a different kind of article. Eric Zorn has been a columnist in the Chicago Tribune for many years. He is also a Michigan Alum, whose dad was a Michigan professor. On very rare occasions, he has written a column highlighting his Michigan fandom.
There is really no basketball content. But it does hit on the pressure in this particular community to root for Loyola. I didn't know it, but apparently there are 26,000 alumni in the Chicago area. (let alone family members, etc., who also root for Michigan.) The one thing he highlights is that no matter what, we will always be Michigan fans.
