Fans immediately made the connection to the movie Zoolander – because, well, anytime anyone mentions anything to do with male modeling, that’s what comes to mind. Today, we learned that in a strange coincidence, McDaniel was actually watching the movie the night before the picture went viral. Rachel Turlep took video of McDaniel’s teammate, Troy Niklas, asking him about the look. He also compared it to “Blue Steel.”
Pretty funny stuff. Maybe he’ll make a cameo in ‘Zoolander 2′. You never know…

Navy is ahead of the game in terms of reaching bowl eligibility in 2013, but they now face the hardest game on the schedule. A trip to Notre Dame is never easy, but coming off a win against Pittsburgh the Mids will at least be confident they can take it to the Irish in their own backyard.
After an off-season and August camp wrought with attrition to its roster, Notre Dame embarks on the season's final month relatively intact.
Notre Dame's defense yielded 101 rushing yards in the first quarter vs. Air Force's option attack last Saturday. Then the party stopped, and that's par for the course for Bob Diaco's unit since a finely tuned machine from the Naval Academy dominated the Irish in October 2010.
Notre Dame returns home for their annual battle against Navy on Saturday. Irish Eyes publisher Tim O’Malley looks at the game and more in our latest podcast.
