Former Auburn head coach and current Cincinnati head coach, Tommy Tuberville, kicked off Auburn's A-Day weekend on the plains Friday.
Tuberville is back in Auburn to induct Carnell Williams and Ronnie Brown to the Tiger Trail, which honors former Auburn players and circles the downtown area.
Brown and Williams were one of the best one-two punches in SEC history during their careers, compiling 6,538 rushing yards and 73 touchdowns. They were the first running back duo from the same school to be selected in the first round in the same year (2005).
Tuberville opened with his account of "The Hummer" Ronnie Brown trucking Tennessee's Jason Allen for a TD, in Knoxville, during Auburn's undefeated 2004 season.
If you want to see it, here it is:
Tuberville also mentioned the opening offensive play of the 2003 Iron Bowl, with Carnell "Cadillac" Williams taking an 80-yard run to the house.
And the voice of the Auburn Tigers, Rod Bramblett, made that play even more memorable:
Auburn will kickoff their A-Day spring game at 2 PM CT and the game will be televised on ESPN.
