Auburn, for the first time in program history, is off to the Final Four. The Tigers knocked off SEC power Kentucky in the Elite Eight on Sunday to punch their ticket.

Charles Barkley, as we've seen, is in full-on celebration mode. So too is another Auburn legend. Bo Jackson has weighed in on the team's accomplishment.

Jackson took to Twitter to celebrate the accomplishment and also dropped a message for the people who doubted the Tigers along the way.

"To all the naysayers...how does that cheap shoe leather you got stuck in your throat taste?"

Jackson starred at Auburn from 1982-1986, playing both baseball and football. He's regarded as one of the best athletes of all-time.

Auburn will take on Virginia in the Final Four next Saturday night. The game time has yet to be released.
