By now, you’ve probably heard Bolles School (Jacksonville, Fla.) junior quarterback Mac Jones switched his commitment from Kentucky to Alabama on Tuesday night.
You can be sure Kentucky offensive coordinator Darin Hinshaw heard the news, since he quickly took to Twitter to spout the wisdom of Mormon apostle James E. Faust.
“In this life, we have to make many choices. Some are very important choices. Some are not. Many of our choices are between good and evil. The choices we make, however, determine to a large extent our happiness or our unhappiness, because we have to live with the consequences of our choices.”
The quote appeared to be a subtweet of Jones, who then fired back with a pointed tweet that suggested Hinshaw was acting like a 12-year-old. Jones quickly deleted the social media post, but not before CollegeSpun.com grabbed a screenshot of the sub-subtweet.
In a rather hilarious move, Hinshaw’s counterpart on the Crimson Tide — Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin — retweeted the Faust quote, which has the intended or unintended consequences of flipping the “consequences” script on Hinshaw.
Either way, it’s best not to vent your anger toward a teenager who’s just trying to make the best decision for his future — a choice the coach’s action might have just affirmed.
