While Athens is a bit closer to Atlanta, there is considerably more countryside between them than between Dekalb and Chicago. My only question is, has Athens become predominantly a bedroom community for Atlanta like Dekalb is for Chicago? Or does it still have a true college town feel and as a minor city of it's own identity? I sort of think the latter. Atthens is more akin to Madison than to Dekalb (a smaller San Bernadino come sto mind)

This is sort of nitpicking argument you make, so I am drilling down a bit deeper to nitpick even more.

Madison is the capitol of Wisconsin. Madison is a city.

Dekalb or Dekalb/Sycamore is/are a small city in the country and rural. NIU is like East Carolina (Greenville) or Virginia Tech (Blacksburg).

I live about 10 miles from the Hoffman Estates campus (near the Sears HQ) and 20 miles from the Dekalb campus. Yes, there are plenty of cornfields through the country to get the NIU.

If Chicago State gets a boost in in students enroll because they announced adding football? Then, it worked. Lets look at UTPB in Odessa Texas. Around 2010, they only had 3000 + students, and right now, over 6000+ after announcing adding football. They went up close to 3000 students and still growing. Lets see how Chicago State's enrollment in the fall.
