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.

Stanford football has undergone an impressive transformation over the last six or seven seasons. Jim Harbaugh took over a team that went 1-11 in 2006 and managed to rebuild the program to heights it hadn’t seen in years with an Orange Bowl victory that concluded the 2010 season.

After winning the Orange Bowl, Harbaugh left to coach the San Francisco 49ers and offensive coordinator David Shaw was promoted to head coach. Shaw has picked up right where Harbaugh left off, leading the Cardinal to three more BCS bowl games and back to back Pac 12 championships.

Shaw laid out these facts and more in a tweet on Tuesday.

Great success on the field and a degree from a top-notch academic institution, plus helping players reach the NFL, is a hell of a recruiting pitch for any coach to have.
