Regardless of what happens in the next two games, Cadillac Williams has revived Auburn football. He was the right man at the right time. What happened on Saturday at Jordan-Hare Stadium will be remembered among the great days in Auburn football’s history.
It wasn’t the outcome of the game, though Auburn’s 13-10 win over Texas A&M was so badly needed. It was the outpouring of passion, the support for an Auburn icon who was there when his school needed him most, that led the Jordan-Hare Stadium being packed to watch two teams with 3-6 records play.
There didn’t seem to be a lot left of the Auburn football so many have loved for so long when Bryan Harsin was shown the door after almost two dark years. But in the course of two weeks, Williams changed that.
