Chizik’s Wife Writes Weird Facebook Post
Jonna Chizik, the wife of Auburn coach Gene Chizik, took to Facebook on Wednesday to rally support for her husband and the Tigers amidst a 1–4 start. She has an interesting method of trying to inspire people to say the least.
Citing Occupy Wall Street, the Arab Spring and Kony 2012 as examples, Mrs. Chizik implored Auburn nation to “create a very powerful ‘All In’ movement of your own.”
That’s when things got really bizarre.
“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.”
She later clarified in a follow-up post that she “NEVER meant or even vaguely was referring to wins and/or losses on a football field” with her fire-and-brimstone call to arms. We’re still trying to figure out where Satan fits into all this. This comes one year after Kristi Malzahn, wife of then-Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn, gave an impassioned and bizarre speech that was caught on video.
Let this be a warning to SIDs: It’s not just players and coaches that you want to instruct in the use of social media.
