Ka'Deem Carey - 2012 New Mexico Bowl

Wait, more records?! Photo by Wildcat Universe

Ka’Deem Carey’s college career keeps getting better.

It’s not that the Arizona Wildcats great is setting new records, since he’s now in the NFL and all, it’s just that he achieved so much while at the UA we’re still coming across new accomplishments.

We already knew Carey broke nearly every Arizona rushing record in the books. We knew he held the Pac-12 record for most rushing yards in a game. It’s common knowledge that he was one of the most prolific running backs this conference has ever seen.

So what’s new? Well, when you stack up Carey’s individual seasons with the best of the Pac-12’s all-time best you are impressed once again at how great No. 25 was in a Wildcat uniform:

There’s only one player on the list twice. Not Marcus Allen. Legends like Oregon’s LaMichael James aren’t on there at all. (Also, don’t miss that Carey passed Bishop Sankey in the bowl game to win his second straight Pac-12 rushing title.)

And you thought you were done being impressed by Ka’Deem Carey.
