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:
@KingHenry_2 Come from a place with a median household income of ~$41K. Drive a car that starts at $26,500. Nothing fishy about that.

Henry subsequently deleted the tweet with the picture, and posted this in response.
Grown Adult people on twitter are worried about what's goes on in my life & what my family does for me #GetALife

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