Welcome to our new 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.

New Penn State coach James Franklin really embraces social media.

He and his coaching staff are all very active on their accounts, often updating fans on how practice is going, providing other tidbits into their daily routines and philosophies, or showing support for other Penn State programs.

All of that is well and good, but a tweet he sent out today is kind of, well, creepy.

I get that sophomore quarterback Christian Hackenberg is the face of the program and everything, but even though the Nittany Lion logos in the eyes thing is pretty cool, this might be a little too up close and personal.
