Random offseason tweet of the day: Baylor puts old playing surface in tailgating area of new McLane Stadium (Photo)

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.

Notre Dame will be using FieldTurf next season and we told you yesterday about the school selling portions of the Notre Dame Stadium grass on its website for $150. Baylor, who will move from Floyd Casey to brand new McLane Stadium next season, had a better idea for its old playing surface.

The Baylor football account tweeted out an image of the turf from Floyd Casey Stadium laid down in the tailgating area outside of the new stadium.

Fans will get to set foot on the BU playing surface for no price. It’s an awesome addition to the atmosphere at the new $250 million stadium which sits along the Brazos River in Waco.

The new stadium is on schedule to open for Baylor’s 2014 opener against Southern Methodist on August 31.
