actually prefer this in some ways-- I'm not at all against retiring numbers but I like when programs continue to "award" the jersey number to outstanding contributors, the way Michigan has often done with the #1 jersey (I think Anthony Carter first made it famous and then it's been handed down since)

I will likely put something out and stick his jersey on it if I don't see anything soon enough.

Great tribute... do NOT read the responses at work.

Thought you meant there were some tear-jerker comments or something in there. Did not see that coming...

An alcohol concentration of 0.02 is about one beer

‚ÄúTHC‚ÄĚ in his system means nothing, unless it is the active form of it, which means recent use. And even when the active form of it is detected, quantifying impairment is at best an educated guess.

 

=========

former University of Texas football star Cedric Benson had a blood alcohol level of 0.02 and tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, in his system at the time of a crash that killed him and his motorcycle passenger in August, according to an autopsy and toxicology report released by the Travis County Medical Examiners office Wednesday.

The legal blood alcohol limit while driving in Texas is 0.08. THC is the intoxicating agent in marijuana and other cannabinoid products.

Experts interviewed by the American-Statesman said that it is difficult to determine from the autopsy when THC entered Benson’s system and whether it played a role in the crash.

Benson, 36, was killed in a fiery crash in August on RM 2222 near Mount Bonnell Road after colliding with a van. He was traveling east at a high rate of speed when authorities said the van entered 2222 after checking for oncoming traffic. His passenger, Aamna Najam, 27, of Houston also was killed. She had a doctorate in audiology from UT.
Austin police have said that they are still investigating the crash and that the result of the autopsy would be a critical piece of evidence. The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission also has said that it is possible that they would open a full investigation based on the results of the autopsy into whether Benson may have been served alcohol.
Benson had posted a picture on Instagram that night of his motorcycle and captioned it ‚ÄúMy Saturday evening.‚ÄĚ

I would imagine the results would not have varied much if they had sampled him just after breakfast that day. This was a sad accident where speed was the culprit, drugs and alcohol were not a huge factor in the cause.

Speed, vision, visibility, perception, attention or lack thereof, reaction time and stopping distance are common factors in auto / motorcycle accidents

Good to see alcohol & marijuana were probably not factors in accident.

RIP CED ūüôŹ¬†

The local news has zero respect for this great Longhorn. Sensationalizing what amounts to a sober person being involved in an accident is complete bullshit.

 

RIP Ced

I don't think that's what it said.  The alcohol level was quite low, but the THC was just present, not listed as a quanitity, so I don't think one can say that it wasn't a factor.  Don't get me wrong.  I'm not saying that it was and my belief is that it wasn't.  Just that I don't believe what is printed above makes any suggestion that it was or wasn't a factor.  

Very sad.  RIP Ced.

especially when you have a hot piece of ass riding with you and you know you're digging into that later in the night.

I heard on the news that 0.02 BAC is consistent with internal ethanol production after death.  

People really need to get off the intoxicant angle.  Riding too fast on an even a very familiar road that has notorious visibility was surely more than enough.

If .02 and THC ‚ÄėIn your system‚Äô were enough to be the primary drivers¬†of a¬†fatal accident I would have died long before Al Gore invented the interwebs (no CR).

Fake news.  RIP Ced....

Not sure what you mean by sensationalizing here. It's literally a sentence of new information, another explaining what it means then a rehash of the original story.

But I just read what was quoted.  Is the Austin media going balls to the wall about Ceds sobriety?

Ditto - Speed was the main cause, I heard from someone on the scene and the extra details are things I wish I never heard.

Sister-in-laws parents were driving on their Harley on a Sunday morning a couple years ago, normal speed. Dude in car misses a stop sign, they die... horrifically. Motorcycles, man.

RIP, Ced.

Still difficult to think Ced's gone...

CEDRIC BENSON -- INCREDIBLE AUSTIN HOME HITS MARKET... For $4.5 Million 

d3f5fc9c6bfc4a56a965812f68b45e3a_md.jpg 

Cedric Benson's longtime home in Austin -- which he completely rebuilt from the ground up -- is hitting the market ... and it's got a $4.5 million price tag.

TMZ Sports has learned ... Benson bought the Texas pad back in 2006 and worked passionately to turn it into his dream home.

The finished product is amazing -- it's got 6 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, pool and spa, personal gym ... and it's all sitting on top of a hill overlooking downtown Austin.

We're told it took 2 years to completely rebuild the house ... and Benson was involved in every detail of the house.

The crib is looking for a new owner who will love the place as much as the former NFL star did ... and it's currently listed for $4.5 million.

Benson tragically passed away in a motorcycle accident back in August 2019. He was 36 years old.
