The University of Oregon athletic department was probably not thrilled to learn that Oregon Ducks wide receiver Josh Huff was cited for driving under the influence of intoxicants at 1:35 a.m. on Saturday morning. Police said an officer saw a vehicle speeding in the area before Huff was pulled over.
A DUI charge is bad enough for anyone, but it is especially bad for Huff, who is 20 years old. If the intoxicant in question is alcohol, which it seems to be, Huff is going to have personal issues that have nothing to do with football.
As far as football issues go, there's no word yet on whether Huff will face discipline from the team. Huff will be a junior next season and is the Ducks' top returning receiver. He caught 31 balls for 430 yards while missing two games and was expected to be an integral part of the Oregon offense in 2012.
