Welcome to our Dr. Saturday feature titled "Random offseason tweet of the day." With real games still weeks away, coaches and players will be tweeting about non-football-related things as the season approaches. In this space, we'll try to find the funniest and goofiest tweets of the day. If you see something, don't hesitate to send it to us.
A kicker's job can be complicated when it comes to technique. But the overall objective is pretty simple, especially when it comes to kicking field goals and extra points.
Oklahoma K Michael Hunnicutt tried to convey that simplicity Wednesday night.

Yes, Hunnicutt has more responsibilities than that. He's got to know all of the fake kick plays Oklahoma has. Need proof? He caught a six-yard touchdown pass off a fake field goal in the third quarter of Oklahoma's game against Oklahoma State in 2013. The touchdown tied the game and Oklahoma went on to win and go to the Sugar Bowl.
But if a kicker can't put the ball through the uprights, a fake is pretty worthless.
