Ezekiel Elliot Is Not Happy With The NCAA's New "Crop Top" Rule

Ohio State's star running back, Ezekiel Elliot, will now need to find a new signature look for the 2015-2016 football season. The Playing Rules Oversight Panel of the NCAA decided to approve the ban of tucking jerseys into a player's pads during football games. However, they have said nothing about practice, and Elliot made sure to continue to sport his "crop top" style jersey after practice last week. 

The new rule states that "Officials will treat illegal equipment issues by making the player leave the field for at least one play. The equipment must be corrected to return to the game. The player may remain in the game if his team takes a timeout to correct the issue."

Elliot responded to this rule by saying that wearing his jersey tucked in was a matter of comfort and not fashion, and that it is a "silly rule, but it's something you can't make that big of a deal about." He continued by saying that the jersey tucked in is "such a minor detail, so it's just like, whatever."

Ohio State will have new uniform tops with elastic to tighten the jerseys up, so he will still be able to tighten his jersey, without tucking it in.  However, over 9,000 fans who have started a petition on Change.com (sign the petition if you feel compelled to do so here) agree with Elliot that he should still be able to wear his crop top jersey. 

Regardless of the new ruling and OSU fans' petitions, Elliot and his team knows that the NCAA has their rules, and he says "it's our job to abide by them."
