Welcome to our Dr. Saturday feature titled "Random offseason tweet of the day." With real games still months 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.

Whoever thought this was a good idea was wrong.

Fridays are Solid Orange Days at Clemson to show school pride. And it's apparently not limited to humans.

While we must acknowledge that this is a well-done and intricate design painted on the dog, it doesn't make the concept any less ridiculous. It was stupid when an Alabama fan did it to this dog and when an LSU fan did it to this dog. Clemson is just proving it's not limited to the SEC.

Please, be humane to your pets. Don't paint them.
