Yesterday, an embarrassing clip hit ESPN for Notre Dame’s Cam McDaniel: the running back tried to run through the team’s gauntlet machine, but found himself painfully stonewalled — he had tried running through it backwards.
Of course, it was a simple mistake (he said the machines he used to use in Texas could be run through both ways) that drew a ton of laughs from fans. Today, McDaniel took to Twitter with the perfect response:
Glad to hear you passed, Cam.
BEST OF MAXIM

Notre Dame running back Cam McDaniel got his bell rung at football practice, but it wasn’t by one of his teammates. McDaniel ran through the gauntlet machine the wrong way, much to the chagrin of his head coach, Brian Kelly.
An Instagram user named Sara Mitchell caught the moment on ESPN, which was doing a “Wired” session with coach Kelly.
All joking aside, it actually...
And, as you may well imagine, his attempt did not end well. A quick perusal of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team’s 2013 roster reveals that the running back who ran through the gauntlet machine backwards is Cam McDaniel, a junior on the squad. The video is culled from a “Wired” segment on ESPN […]The post Notre Dame RB tries to plow through gauntlet machine backwards...
Has this fall camp for Notre Dame been as quiet as we have had in recent memory? If not, it sure seems like it. That, of course, isn't really a bad thing as we could be flooded with news about injuries and quarterback battles and, well... nonsense.
I haven't heard much "nonsense." Of course, the media has been pretty well shut out from viewing practices aside...
NBC does an excellent job detailing pretty much everything that the Notre Dame football program does. The network has done an especially good job creating mini-documentaries throughout the course of football season under the series name Strong And True — the most recent one aired before the Blue/Gold Game this spring.
Today, the school released a trailer of the next Strong and...
This GIF shows a Notre Dame running back smashing into the wrong side of a practice machine, over and over and over again. It's a miserable fail.
We’ve already seen how Adidas has tweaked the football jersey design for Texas A&M and a few other schools ahead of the 2013 season – the apparel manufacturer has changed the thread pattern and added some sort of motto or saying to the collar of each uniform. Today, via NBC’s Alex Flanagan, we’re getting to see what Notre Dame has on its collar.
As you can see, the...
This video is absolute hilarious, and it’s all Brian Kelly’s fault.
In an ESPN “Wired” special with head coach Brian Kelly, you can see players trying to tell Kelly that they are on the wrong side of the machine.
Kelly as any coach would, disregards his players, and tells them to run the drill. Kelly makes running back, Cam McDaniel start the drill.
McDaniel goes barreling...
Nope, this failed attempt from a Notre Dame running back is not right at all and the memes agree.
When you are a young guy trying to impress the coaches it is understandable if you make mistake or two that while embarrassing to you is funny to everyone else. However, when you are a junior like Cam Daniels you should know which way to run through certain machines--like the gauntlet that running backs use to simulate running through would-be tacklers.
Then again, since you should...
So I’m already on record as predicting that Purdue beats Notre Dame this year. Last year, during the summer, I had a gnawing awful feeling that Purdue was going to underwhelm even the modest “expectations” that people were talking about at the time. I looked at the schedule and said I saw maybe a 5-7 season. I knew where the breakdowns would be, almost precisely. This doesn’t...
17 days remain before Notre Dame kicks off its 2013 campaign vs. Temple and Irisheyes.com has identified 20 keys if the program is to return to the BCS Championship game. Next in the series: the contributions of Amir Carlisle.
