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.
When dissing your rival's former quarterback, you must make sure to be prepared against all comebacks. A UCLA fan Twitter account wasn't prepared for Matt Barkley's.
The @UCLA_Nation account made the ill-advised attempt to compare 50 Cent's first pitch at the New York Mets game Tuesday to the throwing of the former USC quarterback. And Barkley, currently on the roster for the Philadelphia Eagles, had a great response.
The game Barkley is referencing? A 50-0 Trojan blowout, where Barkley was 35-42 for 423 yards and six touchdowns. He was 3-1 against the Bruins in his USC career, too. USC lost to UCLA in Barkley's senior season, a game in which he hurt his shoulder.
But still, you can't go after a guy who has lit your team up like that, even if it was his only win against your school. Barkley took this in a first-round TKO.
