Something that's sure to get rival fans riled up on the internet? A picture of a college athlete with a new car.

Alabama RB Derrick Henry, the breakout star of the Tide's Sugar Bowl loss, posted a picture of a new Dodge Challenger to Instagram Monday night. The car even has a name, Fiona.

Predictably, the image made people immediately wonder where Henry got the car despite a lack of proof that it was obtained against NCAA rules.

It's what happens when you're a young college athlete at the most prominent football school in the country. And your coach's potential role in a new car dealership only helps to incite matters, as does the previous controversy about the T-Town Gallery.

Here's a sampling:

Henry subsequently deleted the tweet with the picture, and posted this in response.

Just 3.5 months until fans have real games to worry about.
