The Ellis Johnson era at Southern Miss has come to a quick and abrupt end after just one year thanks to an 0-12 record, the team’s first losing season since 1993.  Johnson, who arrived in Hattiesburg after four years as South Carolina’s defensive coordinator, hasn’t exactly had the most successful head coaching career, currently boasting a 17-40 record in stints at Gardner-Webb, The Citadel, and now Southern Miss.

Pentagon rules excluding women aren’t worth defending

The Pentagon is ending two wars while facing a budget crunch. But bringing gender equality to combat is not a big-ticket item. And change is never a linear narrative. If history is any indication, many pioneering women won’t meet the physical requirements or will choose to drop out, as cadet Shannon Faulkner did in 1995 after the Supreme Court forced The Citadel to end its all-male tradition. But The Citadel is now 10 percent women.

The Citadel wrestling squad usually hosts duals in McAlister Field House on the Charleston, S.C., campus. But on Nov. 11 the Bulldogs faced Arizona State at the 3rd Battalion’s Law Barracks for an afternoon encounter — outside. It wasn’t quite the 1960 Olympics in Rome, but it was certainly a change of pace for those involved.

The research by the evening-class graduate student at The Citadel could open the way to better management and protection of the controversial fields.

No sex? Permission to speak freely, Sir.

Laura Cannon, a 2001 West Point graduate, is writing a memoir on her military service titled “War Virgin.” She blogs at WarVirgin.com.

West Pointers are human beings, even those with names such as David Petraeus and Paula Broadwell. I think I have the standing to make this declaration, because I’m a fellow graduate. West Point is long on molding military officers, but a bit short on humanity. Its mission statement stresses the intent to commit every graduate to a career of professional excellence and service, embodying the values of “duty, honor and country.” How does West Point do that?
