Well, 2016 Chairman Patrick Ryan, in his final appeal named the colleges involved in Chicago's bid. DePaul, Northwestern, Loyola, Notre Dame Illinois and the University of Chicago.
I thought maybe he mean Illinois-Chicago but it was clearly the U of I logo with a shot of Chambana. This means the committee, for whatever reason, had to go out of state to Notre Dame and almost three hours (and over 130 miles) south to U of I for hosting. Not 60 miles west to DeKalb and NIU.
