EUGENE, Ore. - Jeremiah Masoli finished last season at the Rose Bowl, already bestowed with Heisman Trophy buzz. Most agreed he had the potential to do something special at Oregon this season. Just five months later, Masoli is a disgraced former Duck, dumped from the team for wasting a second chance in a stunning fall from grace.

Masoli was pulled over by police on Monday night in Springfield, Ore., for failing to stop when exiting a driveway. Police say he was driving on a suspended license and there was a small amount of marijuana in the glove box.

It was his second run-in with the law in less that six months. He previously pleaded guilty in a January theft at a fraternity house, resulting in a suspension for the upcoming season.

He was kicked off the team Wednesday.
