Welcome to our Dr. Saturday feature titled "Random offseason tweet of the day." With real games still weeks 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.
USC, which has one of the most iconic color schemes and images in college football, decided to play a little joke on its Twitter followers Wednesday, and post a picture of what it claimed to be a new helmet.

Of course, the Trojans foiled the joke before it could even get started by hashtagging the picture “#kidding,” though it did get some good initial responses.
USC actually wasn’t the only team to have a strange silver on white helmet, the Pac-12 did them for each team as part of the league’s media days this week.
Some of them actually don’t look too bad and we fully anticipate seeing Oregon bust its helmet out sometime this season.
