It’s actually a bit scary.

Javon Ringer and Jehuu Caulcrick exchanging carries in Michigan State’s backfield.

As we’ll continue to point out since, for some reason, it seems to get lost, Javon Ringer finished his career as a Spartan with 4,398 yards rushing when he graduated in 2008 – and that remains the second-best career rushing total among all Spartans (he trails only Lorenzo White who amassed 4,887 yards).

Jehuu Caulcrick is not in Michigan State’s all time top ten for career rushing yards – however, he is third on the all time list for rushing touchdowns scored with 39 behind only Jeremy Langford (40) and Lorenzo White (43).

Javon Ringer is fifth all time in the rushing touchdown category for the Spartans with 34.

Including passes caught for touchdowns, these two beasts are responsible for 75 total touchdowns scored between them.

Do I need to combine flowery prose with eggheaded statistical information to emphasize that 75 touchdowns between these two horses is a lot of touchdowns or will you just accept that the total is, indeed, a substantial total?

Frankly, I never quite understood how and why Jehuu Caulcrick didn’t rush for about 250 yards every single game since he was like an 18-wheeler with an IndyCar engine that was barreling downhill at all times.

As for Javon Ringer – the man was a freak of nature and remains one of the all time greatest Spartans even though he’s somewhat underrated and under appreciated.

Neither of these machines are underrated or under appreciate here at SpartansWire.

These guys played their guts out every time they were on the field.

But, in case anyone needs any sort of “extra” reason to see Javon Ringer, in particular, as one of the all time greats to ever wear the Green & White, does this photograph do the trick?

How about this Gameday feature on Ringer that would make Arnold Schwarzenegger

Franco Columbu

or Jay Cutler (not THAT Jay Cutler, the one that isn’t a whiny baby football player but, rather, THIS Jay Cutler)

all agree that Ringer was a complete beast.
