College football rivalries being built on gridiron

These six rivalries are being built the old-fashioned way - on the field. And there's no contrived, committee-designed trophies, no quaint nicknames that hark back to a more innocent time, and definitely no corporate sponsorship. Just contemporary, 21st-century spite.

Ashley's War

Should women serve in combat? Right now the military is answering that question with a final verdict scheduled to come down from Defense Secretary Ashton Carter in January 2016. This will inevitably become a political question-and thus particularly useless in producing a satisfactory answer-but until then it's useful to understand that the military sees this question differently than you and I do.
