Cliff Harris was dismissed from the Oregon football team Tuesday after violating team rules.
Media reports state those team rules included a citation for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana in Fresno, Calif., on Nov. 25, however that's not been confirmed by the university.
Still, Harris took to his Facebook page to apologize to Ducks fans for "the circumstances that got me kicked off the team."
It's been a bad year for Harris, who started the football season suspended after being ticketed for driving 118 mph with a suspended license in a car that wasn't his. On Oct. 24, he was suspended indefinitely after being cited for driving with a suspended license, without insurance and without a seat belt.
Harris finished his junior season with nine tackles and an interception, which was in stark contrast to his sophomore season that saw him break up 23 passes, average 18.8 yards per punt return and score four punt return touchdowns.

((HT: KVAL-TV Eugene))Now the HQ may know why that happened...The Fresno Bee reports that Cliff Harris was cited for less than an ounce of marijuana possession over Thanksgiving...All the University of Oregon would say was that all of the info on the release was in their release, and that head coach Chip Kelly would not go over any kind of discipline in public.Harris was busted for...
It's a testament to the character and resilience of the Oregon team that in each of Chip Kelly's first three years, they won a conference title with a key player suspended or dismissed for disciplinary reasons. The Ducks went 36-6 without running back LeGarrette Blount in 2009, returning starting quarterback Jeremiah Masoli in 2010, and All-American returner and cornerback...
After the Oregon Ducks beat UCLA 49-31 in the Pac-12 championship game this past weekend their coach slipped in a few words for Dr. Pepper and UPS. Little side job I guess. That provoked someone to make an awesome parody video with his head on Pitbull's body singing "Let's Have a Real Good Time." Unlike trick shot videos, parody videos never get old.
NWSportsBeat.com Oregon sports blogger Matthew Martz sat down with Oregon Ducks offensive lineman Ryan Clanton this week for a quick chat about the team, the preperation, Chip Kelly, and the scouting report for the Ducks vs. Wisconsin Badgers 2012 Rose Bowl game in Pasadena California. Clanton, along with freshman center Hroniss Grasu have only allowed 10 sacks in 2011.
From the Brush High Arcs of Lyndhurst, Ohio, Pharaoh Brown is rising like a wonder of the world.
He's 6-7, 225 and still filling out, all-district in basketball last winter scoring 16.6 points a game, so talented he can dunk with either hand.
Football's become his first love, and as a junior he flashed so much potential, playing defensive end, tight end and quarterback...

Kegs ‘n Eggs finds this great little video of Chip Kelly shamelessly plugging Dr. Pepper and UPS in his Pac 12 championship post game interview. The corporate name dropping isn’t the highlight though. It is the Oregon coach getting his face superimposed on Pitbull’s body.
Still like Tim Tebow as T-Pain better.
