Pod of Gold: Former Notre Dame RB Darius Walker on the struggling Irish running game
Notre Dame turned a shaky start into a blowout 40-7 victory against Boston College on Saturday to register a third-straight win of more than 30 points. The Irish will look to finish the regular season with another victory on Saturday at Stanford, a place the Irish haven’t won since 2007.
This week's podcast guest was a member of the Houston Texans when that happened. Former Notre Dame running back Darius Walker, who rushed for 3,249 yards in three seasons with the Irish (2004-06), joined the show to discuss the Irish season, how ND can get its running game back on track, how a freshman can break into the lineup at running back, the challenges of playing through injuries, his decision to leave early for the NFL, his experience as a co-host of NBC Sports Network's Notre Dame Fan Feed broadcast of the Boston College game and more (1:57).
Then Tyler James and Eric Hansen made Stanford game predictions in the Place Your Bets segment (27:43) and answered questions from Twitter (32:25).
