Alabama Posts Cool Photo Showing Why It Should Be Called Running Back U

The Alabama Crimson Tide are known for a number of things within the college football landscape, and producing monster running backs is one of them. 

This year, is was Derrick Henry's turn to capture the country's attention, as the junior went on to win the Heisman Trophy after rushing for 1,986 yards and 23 touchdowns. He was a workhorse for the Tide and helped lead them to the No. 2 seed in the College Football Playoff. But he's just the latest to come through Tuscaloosa. 

Alabama has had six different running backs make the cover of Sports Illustrated, as you can see from this photo it posted on Twitter with the hashtag [Defensive Back University].

It's hard to argue when the Tide continue to bring these types of running backs through the program year after year.
