Oregon's Cliff Harris likes to drive fast

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.

Of course we know it isn't his car, just like pryer.  Yeah, that makes it better along with not having a license.  Leave it to a jets fan to make sense of it all.
Love how you assume you think it means I'm letting him off.

He can transfer to Florida... speed kills.  41-14

You can't get kicked off until you get 3 speeding tickets over 100, threaten your girlfriend's life at least twice (once will just cost you 3 games), DUI passout at the major redlight in town where police have to break the window to wake you up (1 game), or basically commit murder which means they won't play you anymore, because you will be unavailable, not because they don't want you.

Where's the humor if you can't make fun of your own team.

Tongue out

The car was rented by a university employee.  Can you say IMPROPER BENEFIT.  How much you want to bet that the university employee paid with a NIKE credit card.

It has been 15 years, but I've hit 100 mph in Nevada.  My saving grace is that the hood started to rattle at 102 mph.  Whoever owns that 1993 Grand Am still has my wifes fingernail imprints on the passanger side of the dashboard.  Stupid yes, but depending on the situation, may not be worth damning him as a helpless criminal.

When you are going 118 mph, it is no longer a simple traffic stop and speeding ticket.  At best for the kid, it is reckless operation.  Add that to the fact that his license was already suspended, and the kid is in some trouble.  This is not the end of the world by any means, but he will surely not be driving again legally for quite some time.  What Chip Kelly does with this is totally up to him.

Captain-Mike, at least we know it isn't his car, unlike TP who seems to "own" a different car every few months.

Suspend him from games???? Why??? He got a speeding ticket.  Get over it.  Was it fast?  Yes.   It's a speeding ticket.
