Let's not kid ourselves here. Chicago is a bandwagon city, outside of the Bears. And college is only a kind of big deal because so many Big Ten grads move here and because nearly every Catholic and/or Irish kid grows up loving notre dame. It's not really a college sports town at all.

And before someone comes in and says it's not a bandwagon town because the Cubs always draw, realize that people are going to have fun at the park and not so much watch the team, and that studies have found that 40% of Cubs tickets are sold to out of staters. But TV ratings for all teams except the Bears scream bandwagon town.
