    From today's Detroit News:

    Q. What are the early impressions of Michigan State's newcomers?

    A: Coach John L. Smith was giddy after the team's first day of practice, calling the freshman class "the best crew since we've been here."

    Smith praised the quickness of first-year running back Javon Ringer, saying "you can't tell" that Ringer is coming back from knee surgery.

    "I think he can give us some things that (DeAndra) Cobb gave us," Smith said, referring to the loss of Cobb's big-play ability.

    Michigan State has found a Ringer

    Former C-J standout has run for four TDs in first two games

    By Kyle Nagel
    Dayton Daily News

    It didn't take long for Javon Ringer to make his big splash in East Lansing, Mich.

    In two games, as Michigan State University has zipped to a 2-0 record, Ringer has rushed for 149 yards and four touchdowns. Now the MSU freshman running back from Chaminade-Julienne High School is expected to be one of the main offensive forces when the Spartans travel to South Bend, Ind., on Saturday for a nationally televised game against No. 10 Notre Dame.

    After gaining 69 yards in MSU's season-opening win against Kent State, Ringer stepped into the spotlight when Spartans starting tailback Jason Teague was suspended indefinitely for undisclosed reasons. Against Hawaii last Saturday, Ringer rumbled for 80 yards and three scores, from 8, 41 and 15 yards.

    A Michigan State athletic spokesman said Wednesday that Ringer will enter the Notre Dame game No. 2 on the depth chart behind sophomore Jehuu Caulcrick.

    "He's explosive," Michigan State quarterback Drew Stanton said of the 5-foot-9, 195-pound Ringer. "He's a strong guy that can carry between the tackles. If you give him an inch, he can take it the whole way. A couple of times (Hawaii) tried to bring the pressure against us and he was able to maneuver and find his way into the end zone."

    Most likely they were seen as clones (size and style) of existing backs.. Sutton and Pitman are very similar... Sutton is a wonderful kid...

    As stated above, Ringer didn't have grades, or he would have been a Buckeye. As for Sutton, we already had Mo Wells in the bag.

    I feel bad for Javon, but I'm half as worried about the MSU game as I was with him on the field.
