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.

He wanted to prove that Ducks can fly.
As the old saying goes "nothing good happens at that time in the morning !"
Personally I don't think that the team should punish him, that should be up to the court system.
I am just glad that he or anyone else was not hurt or even worse killed in this situation.

He wont get kicked off the team for speeding maybe a game or two suspension from the coaching staff. the real question here is did he rent the car himself with a suspened license or did another person rent it and let him use it. then this may become an ncaa rules issue was this an improper benefit from a booster or just a dumb move by a young guy we will have to wait and see.

If he isn't kicked of the team, something is rotten in Oregon.

It's always fun watching the Ducks rationalize any of their players' misdeeds.  This one is definitely down there on the totem pole of infractions, though.
Nobody is condoning what he did.  A young guy driving fast of the freeway at 4am.  It's not like he was buying alcohol for high school sophemores eh Husky fans!

As far as lists of transgressions go this is pretty tame.  Uduh knows they can't beat Oregon so they hope and pray some of our best players get kicked off the team.  Pathetic little Fuskies!

What kind of rental car did he have that goes 118? Not a Fiesta. I didnt rent a car until I was out of college, with a job, and then I would go for one of the least expensive available. He is in school, with no income and he is renting up in a car that goes 118 mph?

That's about four times faster than people normally drive on Oregon freeways.
