Apparently, football players in the state of Oregon have been commissioned to show the world that Nissan Altima's are the speeding cars of choice.

The latest player to get caught flying down Oregon's Interstate 5 in a Altima is Oregon State cornerback Malcolm Marable, who was cited for driving 104 mph in a 2005 Altima at 1 a.m. Sunday morning, according to the Gazette-Times.

Marable was not only cited for driving Interstate 5 like it was the Autobahn, but he was also ticketed for failing to produce proof of insurance and registration. The fine for driving over 100 mph in Oregon is $1,148.

Oh, and here's a shocker, it wasn't Marable's car.

Did Marable go to the Cliff Harris school of driving?

Last summer, Harris, a cornerback with the Oregon Ducks, was cited for going 118 mph in a 2011 Nissan Altima down the same stretch of road. He also didn't own the car and was cited for lack of insurance, driving with a suspended license and not wearing his seatbelt. Harris, who had a litany of other issues, was ultimately dismissed from the team.

Marable has been suspended indefinitely, the third Oregon State cornerback to suffer that fate. Sean Martin was suspended after a DUI and Mishawn Cummings was suspended for undisclosed reasons.

Hopefully, Marable's joyriding incident will be his last or else he might follow Harris footsteps right into looking for a new place to play.
