That's what Elijah Hood has to say to Nick Saban and Alabama football, which apparently is still sending him letters despite his April commitment to Notre Dame.
Hood, a running back and linebacker for Charlotte Catholic, filmed himself taking one of his letters with Alabama's script 'A' and flushing it down the toilet. He tweeted a link to the post on Vine, an app that allows users to post short video clips of no more than six seconds.
In the Vine, Hood shows multiple letters from Alabama addressed to him in the care of Charlotte Catholic. He says "Dang, Nick Saban hooked your boy up" before cutting to the clip of one letters floating in a toilet. He finishes the post saying, "Roll Toilet," a parody on the popular "Roll Tide" saying by Alabama fans.
He has since deleted his Vine post.
Hood likely wouldn't do this with any school. Alabama defeated Notre Dame 42-14 in January in one of the most lopsided BCS National Championship Games in history.
Hood, the Observer's reigning offensive player of the year, rushed for a county-record 3,309 yards and 48 touchdowns in 2012. He plans to enroll in South Bend after his June 2014 graduation. He was heavily recruited by many of the top programs in the nation and ultimately selected the Fighting Irish over North Carolina.
"There are plenty of good schools close by," Hood told the Observer in April, "but there's something about Notre Dame. It's a great place with so much history and tradition. They have stuff I couldn't have dreamed of. They wowed me. They took my breath away at times. I knew it was the place."
