Cedric Benson has passed away - RIP 🤘​​​​​​​

Recommended Posts

5600 block of mt Bonnell looks to be on the south side which has lights.  Makes more sense for it happening at north side because no light and Cedric traveling west.  Doesn’t seem like arrests were made.

One of my brothers lives about three blocks away from that intersection, so this tragedy does hit close to his home.

RIP Ced, you were one of a kind. 🤘

Well this sucks. His Longhorn career was great but his 2000 senior season at Midland Lee was amazing.

RIP Ced

God damnit. RIP Cedric Benson.

One of the most dominant HS RBs this state has ever seen. Dude was a fucking monster.

Just saw video of cop talking . Looks like it happened on north mt Bonnell.  Cop said that when cars come over hill at high speed on mt Bonnell road towards 2222, it is hard to stop at the stop sign there.  Kind of insinuating that the van went through stop sign and into 2222 west bound lane.

Don't ride motorcycles

I almost got one after my divorce, but decided it was a stupid idea.

My God, just seeing this.

What a gut punch.  I saw a guy lose control of his motorcycle the other night on Lamar near 24th.  Hit the curb and flew like a rag doll half a football field into Pease Park.

Margin for error on those things is next to nil.

FUCK

I really hope this isn't true. Oh damn.

Also guys, don't ride motorcycles. 

This. There is a reason that surgeons refer to motorcycle riders as walking organ donors. Just a sad situation all around. I hope for the best for his 10 year old daughter.

That happened to my youngest son when he snuck his older brother’s dirt bike out to ride it down the street. He only dislocated his shoulder though.

Wtf!!!!!!! I loved Cedric.  I remember his ass in high school. 3 straight state championships 350 plus yards and 5 touchdowns in every game. 

 

He waxed my SA MacArthur team.

If memory serves, the first three carries he ever got for UT were in garbage time in a blowout against rice or ULaLa or something. The crowd absolutely erupted seeing him come off the sideline. He hit the hole so hard and so smooth. He was unique.

This is about the shittiest of things that can possibly happen. We are lesser without him with us. He made all of us better. He made everyone around him better. Cedric was the first Longhorn I ever liked. I fell madly in love with the University of Texas basically because of him. He is the reason I became interested in Texas. Before that I didn't really follow any team. I will miss him.
