Gene Chizik's wife Jonna posted on Facebook
on Wednesday to rally support for Auburn after their 1–4 start. In her post she cited the Occupy Wall Street protests, the Egypt uprising and the Kony 2012 movement as examples....
"Therefore, my humble suggestion is to create a VERY POWERFUL ALL-IN movement of your own." “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 the statement with a follow-up 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 vaguely 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."
"So for those who have misunderstood my humble attempt to get the best fan base in America to rally around a group of 17-22 year old young boys and for those that have misrepresented my words or my intent to unite the Auburn Family please forgive me for offending you with the integrity of my heart."
