    He was there in the stands. This win was for him. He raised some hell in the BCS picks! Only two people picked Tech to win.

    When I saw the Yellow Jacket's win I thought there had to be something more to it . . . RIP Reck.

    Prayers to family and friends.

    It can't be coincidence that Tech pulled off the win.

    RIP Reck

    Delma? No wonder he went by Buddy. I wished I knew that earlier, I hate missed opportunities. I could have gotten some mileage out of that.

    Does not mention a wife, and I never saw Buddy discussing one. Anyone know the story?

    I think I read on one of his posts or someone else's that he had kids when playing at GT, and that he lived in the married dorms. So married very young I s'pose.

    He had a couple of wives. One with whom he had the children, then another that didn't last. A lot of what he wrote about Tybee Island involved the second one, I think.

    Sorry to hear of his death. Rest in Peace.

    Me too. I'm also sorry we've started to intrude into areas he didn't feel inclined to share. Knocking it off would be a good move.
