How Memphis and, er, Shreveport Rank with a Big-Time Sportswriter

So, Mayor, you really, really think Our Town is big-league enough for a new big-league stadium. Well, here's this dose of realism from Andrew Bagnato of A.P.: "Say what you will about the BCS, and many have said plenty. But if it wasn't for the Bowl Championship Series, most football fans wouldn't know Boise State from Boys Town. The ninth-ranked Broncos would never have been given a crack at No. 7 Oklahoma on a stage as grand as the Fiesta Bowl. They'd have run all those gadget plays against Memphis, or someone like it, in the YourNameHere Bowl in Shreveport."
