It seems they do everything at Oregon faster than everybody else, not just football. So I suppose it's hard to blame cornerback Cliff Harris for his run-in with the law this weekend, as he's used to doing everything at 100 miles per hour. Or, as is the case this time, at 118 miles per hour. According to a tweet from Rob Moseley, who covers the Oregon beat for The Register-Guard, Harris was pulled over by the state police on Sunday for driving 118 mph in a 65 mph zone.

And he did it on a suspended license to boot.



That's not the best way to go about getting your license reinstated. According to the AP report, Harris was pulled over at 4:35 a.m. on Interstate 5 south of Albany in a rental car. The fine for getting caught driving over 100 mph? $1,148. 

As for whether or not Harris should expect some form of punishment from the football team, Chip Kelly is yet to issue a statement.

 If somebody rented him a car with a suspended license, they are getting fired

The rental car company is owned by an Oregon booster.  Keeps getting better.

I thought Terrelle Pryor decided to go pro?  Oh, this was an Oregon player speeding with a suspended license in a car that belonged to someone else.  Looks like an Oregon player is caught cheating.  Lets give them the death penalty.

Yeah I had a Hyabusa a few years back and routinely hit 160+ on I95 in downtown Miami and Ft Lauderdale... ran from the police a couple of times (actually I was doing 170 one time when I passed on in Pompano Beach.. I assume he came after me but at that speed was gone before he got the car in gear).


Thinking about it now with a wife and 3 little ones keeps me up at night in bed... what a moron I was.

I had a Corvette when I was 19 - bad news as I was clocked over 140mph.

Sorry for the kid, was probaly just having fun. Just glad he got pulled over before hitting something.

@Zekepepe, Cal is the soccer team of the Pac 10.  Good try, though.
