Gene Chizik, the head football coach at Auburn, has his hands full this season — the Tigers are 1-4 with road games coming up against Mississippi and Vanderbilt, and a trip to Alabama to close out the regular season on Thanksgiving. The coach needs good things to happen for his team, fast. To that end, his wife, Jonna, took to Facebook to brainstorm some ideas to generate support and get fans more involved.
The result was rather bizarre.
See for yourself, but this seems more rant than rah-rah. I was with you, Jonna, until you brought Satan into the mix.
“…Therefore, my humble suggestion is to create a VERY POWERFUL ‘ALL IN’ movement of your own,” Jonna wrote. “We have fans all over the US and I think it is time that they RISE UP and snatch back what satan, himself, has stolen. We serve a God who recovers ALL that “has been stolen” from us and there are times that He requires the efforts of His people to accomplish this truth.”
After more than a few confused replies, I’m assuming, Jonna “clarified” her post.
“To clarify my original post about utilizing social media to come together as a fan base in support of what Auburn stands for…when I refered to what satan has stolen from us as a whole I NEVER meant or even vaugely was refering to wins and/or losses on a football field. To be clear, I honestly believe that God doesn’t care who wins a football game but I do know that we serve a GOD big enough to do as He pleases.”
Still confused, but thanks for the attempt to clear that up. When on Facebook, my rule has always been, “When in doubt, leave Beelzebub out.”
