- Pace of life allows no room for study (By JEFF LANGAN )
As DART season and Thanksgiving approach, we can all start looking forward to the two weeks in February when we will actually be able to concentrate on our academic work.

- Notre Dame needs conscience clause (By TODD DAVID WHITMORE )
In an earlier column, I mentioned the need for a conscience clause for athletes and coaches at Notre Dame with regard to contracted apparel. Such a clause, placed in every contract with an apparel manufacturer, would read something like the following: "If a coach or athlete after careful examination and discernment cannot in good conscience wear the officially contracted apparel, he or she may wear a reasonable, situationally appropriate alternative." My concern that there be such a clause has arisen from reflection on the problem of the working conditions of those who manufacture the apparel and the recognition that these conditions may provide problems of conscience for a coach or athlete. I say this without making specific judgments about Adidas or Champion companies at the present time and without anticipating making a negative judgment in the future.

- A message for the players (LETTER TO THE EDITOR )
Tomorrow's game is your last game at Notre Dame this year and the last game forever for the seniors. Stop and think about it: You will never again play at the place that you have given yourself to — your blood, sweat and tears, yes your all — for four years of your life! You have worked so hard, so incredibly hard, for so long that it is unthinkable to leave any shadow of a doubt in your mind that you did all of that for nothing — to simply walk away at the end when it matters most. This game will last only one hour on the game clock, but the memory of it — good or bad — will never be erased for as long as you breathe.
