Hewitt's agent is...wait for it...Mark Carmony, University of Georgia Class of 1991. Georgia Tech, home of the self-professed greatest minds in the Universe, got taken to the contractual woodshed by a Dawg. Outstanding.
Paul Hewitt, the Wizard of Techwood, is currently 0-6 in ACC play with #4 Wake Forest coming to town tomorrow. He's only 4-5 against UGA despite us fielding arguably 3 of our 4 worst teams in the past 30 years while Hewitt was at Tech.
