Whenever a college athlete—especially an SEC football player—gets something nice, accusations of NCAA violations are sure to follow.
Alabama's Derrick Henry found that out recently.
On Monday, the Crimson Tide running back posted a picture of him standing with his new car. Now, he is the center of fans' criticism.
A car like that has some fans wondering how he was able to afford it:
. @KingHenry_2 how much does bama pay you on a weekly basis?— swaggy g (@___gmoney__) May 13, 2014
@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.— JG (@JHG722) May 13, 2014
Wonder who bought Derrick Henry that car - Saban or Kiffin?— Jordan Honeycutt (@JHONEYnbsj29) May 13, 2014
Bama running back Derrick Henry's new car. Seems legit for a full time college student with no job right? pic.twitter.com/CO9V8stuLf— Commit.to.the.T (@OneTennessee) May 13, 2014
Henry wasn't a fan of the allegations:

This is why we can't have nice things.
