Report: Oregon WR Huff arrested on DUI charges

Unfortunately for Chip Kelly and Oregon, traffic-related arrests are nothing new for Ducks. And thanks to wide receiver Josh Huff, they're going to remain nothing new for a little while longer.

The Eugene Register-Guard reported that Huff was arrested by Eugene police in the early hours of Saturday morning and charged with driving under the influence, as well as driving without a license and speeding. A police spokeswoman said Huff was pulled over at 1:22 a.m. after being spotted speeding in Eugene. Huff was taken to Lane County Jail and released to an acquaintance after completing sobriety tests.

An Oregon spokesperson said the Ducks were aware of the incident but would have no further comment or disciplinary action at this time.

Huff, a rising junior, is the Ducks' leading returning receiver at the wideout position, having caught 31 passes a year ago for 431 yards. Huff has also returned kickoffs and had more than 200 yards rushing as a freshman in 2010. Though Kelly is -- as always -- somewhat spoiled for choice when it comes to offensive playmakers, the departures of LaMichael James, Darron Thomas and Lavasier Tuinei means that Huff should nonetheless play a much more prominent role in the offense in 2012 than he did a year ago; any absence via suspension would likely have a noticeable impact, despite the presence of De'Anthony Thomas.

Complicating matters is that Huff's arrest will do nothing for his program's continuing image as one rife with discipline issues and petty lawlessness. Even if the charges stick, Huff's punishment isn't likely to be too stiff--but Oregon's history might make it stiffer than it would be elsewhere, and that punishment in turn could have serious on-field ramifications. It's safe to say Kelly has had better weekends.

Of course, Kelly also has bigger things to worry about right this second. For columnist Gregg Doyel's take on the Ducks' impending NCAA violations case, click here.

There's talk that his blood test came back under the legal limit. If thats the case then we'll see what driving without a license gets him.

If Oregon will ever become the new USC, they have to learn how to cover these things up!!!!  They've sure had plenty of opportunities to learn....

Welcome to the 'elite"s" microscope.LOL. It's a sign of respect as well as a sign that the house could be in better order.

Two different standards in college, the "kids" and the Football players. Not fair, just the way it is....

I guess losing 8 times in a row to Oregon has caused UW to got off the deep end. What they could not do on the field, they are now trying to accomplish off of it. CBS is but a player in their wicked game. For those not familiar the Huskies think they are accademicly superior. The think we are country rubes.

Nice fodder for the fans, but when AD Woodward came to Oregon a year ago, he said they have nice facilities but the education standards were dismal. Matt Court was brand spanking new. Now some high brow professor is entitled to brag about the soundness of his program, but an Athletic Director? 


So yes, I submit to you that this kind of abuse is rooted in Seattle. With their new found power at the executive offices of the NCAA, it is pretty easy to see where the information is being leaked from. It is no accident that 5 stories negative about Oregon show up. Yes they care that much, you see it far easier to destroy that build.

Anyone who knows about Coach Romar knows he is one of the most respected and stand up coaches in the country. For you to try and bash him is disgusting. No Husky fans respect or like Overton. The guy is slime. All Pac 12 basketball fans know that Romar is an honest and straigh up man

Also your comment on Venoy Overton are completly wrong. When were there other players there watching him have sex with a girl? He got in trouble with supplying underage people with alcohol and the pimping thing didn't go down till well after he left the program. Get your facts straight child

Your ridiculous man. So your saying that all of Oregon's problems are because UW is putting all the information out there right? Think of this... what if your players didn't always get in trouble? There wouldn't be any news! Keep blaming UW for all your problems. You make all Duck fans seem childish and if I were a Duck fan I would be embarrassed by you. Why do you go trolling around on Husky football blogs anyway? I have never been on a Duck football blog and have no desire to now. Your childish responses to anything related to Oregon make you a laughingstock on these message boards
