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.

Not many college football coaches would do what James Franklin did Saturday night.

The former Vanderbilt coach and current Penn State coach went to the College World Series to root for Vanderbilt, even wearing black to do so.

While you may wonder why Franklin took the time to cheer for an old employer, it's clear he values his time spent at Vanderbilt, much like many coaches do at schools they moved on from. There's nothing wrong with going to cheer for the Commodores in a different sport, especially since they're not playing Penn State. He's friends with Vanderbilt coach Tim Corbin, though he declined to comment to the Tennessean on being at the game.

Coaches are allowed to take a break and enjoy other sports from time to time too.
