Bring the Jags here

Southern University AD Greg LaFleur was in town today to speak to grads about the Jags playing a game here. The bottom line (and he was honest enough to share it) is assuring the team can cover all its expenses and clear $250,000 in profit. If that's too tough, either Texas Southern or Prairie View could be enticed to move their 2006 home games against Southern here.
That seems far more likely for now until Southern officials see firsthand if they can fill Independence Stadium. When that happens, a home game in Shreveport won't be far behind.
