Ohio State fans, Ezekiel Elliott petition to change NCAA 'crop tops' ban
Ohio State University fans are hoping that a new petition started on Change.org will convince the NCAA to reverse its recent ban on the crop top style jersey in college football.
The new rule will put an end to the exposed midriff look preferred by Buckeyes star running back Ezekiel Elliott, who has tweeted out a link to the petition himself, along with the hashtag #SaveTheCropTop.
Elliott's father has also taken up the torch, even joking that he will wear a crop top in the stands in protest of the ruling.
The petition already has 6,200 supporters as of Friday morning, with a goal of 7,500 signees.
This issue may even unite Ohio State and Michigan fans, as Wolverines kick returner Dennis Norfleet is also partial to the style.
