Hampton head coach Edward Joyner apparently needed an answer quick.
He therefore didn’t call upon Jesus by praying (so 1st century), but instead chose to press the speed-dial button on a cell phone.
Jesus apparently answered, but it was not necessarily the response that Joyner wanted. According to a video shown on College Spun, the line went dead shortly after Joyner posed a question regarding Hampton’s chances against Kentucky.
One can only imagine Jesus thinking: “Who does this coach think he is? I don’t have time for such frivolous pursuits. Too busy saving the world, not the team.”
Perhaps Joyner should try some old-fashioned knee bending. Who knows? It might work a whole lot better than today’s technology.
