PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Video of police pulling over former Oregon Ducks Quarterback Marcus Mariota was routine and boring, and it turns out video of police stopping current Ducks Quarterback Dakota Prukop isn’t any more exciting.

Mariota was stopped in November 2014 for driving 80 mph in a 55 mph zone, and the boring dashcam video revealed polite conversation and respect for the officer.

Anyone expecting dashcam video of Prukop being stopped by police to have a little more flair will be woefully disappointed.

He was stopped in May on Interstate 5 in Lane County for driving 85 in a 65. Like his predecessor, he is polite to the officer and displays the utmost respect. He politely answered “yes sir,” “thank you sir,” in the video. Prukop informed the officer he was driving a rental vehicle and provided his license when asked.

The quarterback paid his ticket of $261.50, and just like that, the matter was resolved.

You can watch the full recording above, but be warned, it’s a snooze fest.

Not like Harris

These stops bear no resemblance to an OSP video uncovered in 2011, when former Ducks player Cliff Harris was pulled over in a car going 118 mph, with QB Darron Thomas riding shotgun.

Harris infamously told the trooper “we smoked it all.”
