07:26 AM ET 07.29 | At 6-foot-3 and 275 pounds, Alabama defensive end recruit Dee Liner won't be all that hard to spot, but he brought some unnecessary attention to himself and the Crimson Tide program. [Liner] is already causing a stir and he hasn't even taken the field yet. All because of a photo he posted on his Instagram. The incoming freshman made a big uh oh [Sunday] by posting a photo of him and two other friends flaunting wads of cash. The caption read "This is just day 1" with a hashtag saying #struggleoverwit. The origin of the cash is unknown but of course, with a photo like that, booster money is the first thought that comes to many people's minds. There's no word on coach Saban's thoughts on the picture but one can assume [Liner] won't be posting anything like that again.

And the rich D1 schools want a separate division so they can up the ante and legally pay players ... more than they're getting today. There will be even more cash flashin' when that happens.

Dee Milner and his posse are proving why you don't trust kids with money. They don't have the maturity to handle it.

Liner, not Milner.

They wanna be just like the bass fishermen on TV, and pose with the big one they just caught -- well, the big brown bag that just got dropped in their lap, at least.



Talk about starting off your college career in the coach's doghouse. Unbelievable. OK, maybe not so unbelievable.

It must have been payday at Alabama. What a corrupt program !

That's one way to get the NCAA's attention. How long before Nick gets the itch to coach in the NFL again?

oh, but they need to get paid because they are starving college students that don't even get a "full-cost scholarship"

Well we know it didn't come from boosters. That's against the rules.
So ... was it robbery money? Summer job cash? Or were they hangin' out at the strip club when someone made it rain?
