Clemson students are halfway through the fall semester and, as is custom on many college campuses, are receiving mid-term reports about their academic performance. Professors highlight each student’s performance to this point in the semester, while drawing attention to all of the assignments that are still left to complete. The mid-term report serves as a benchmark to the student about where he or she currently is and provides a springboard for the student to jump toward where he or she wants to finish.
Our fall Olympic sports programs are also in the middle of their seasons with a number of opportunities to move closer to the goals that were set during preseason camps. As these programs find themselves at this pivotal juncture of the 2005 season, it is appropriate to look at what has already been accomplished, as we turn up the intensity and determination to reach for what is left on the table.

The results of these remaining contests will have a tremendous impact on the Tigers post-season chances. All of our fall sports still have opportunities to reach post-season competition and attain many of the goals they set prior to the season. It is in the post-season that ACC and National Championships are won in these sports. As our teams head in that direction, we must have a consolidated effort from our coaches, student-athletes, and fans. It is at this point in the season when our Pride in our school, our teams, and ourselves must be the strongest. It is now that champions coach, play, and cheer harder, and regardless of what happens, they never, ever, ever give up.
