Ohio State running back made a pretty big statement during the Buckeyes’ win over Virginia Tech Monday night. After his long 80-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, he lifted his shirt to give his jersey the “crop-top” look that he made so famous during the College Football Playoff earlier this year.
The NCAA made a new rule over the summer that he prohibited Elliott and any other college football players from having their jerseys untucked and lifted for the that same look.
Elliott still found a way to mess with the NCAA when he tweeted a photo of him exposing his midsection during the game at the organization Wednesday morning. College Spun had the photo.
There’s nothing in the rules saying that Elliott can’t mess with the organization that essentially controls his college career, but I wouldn’t think it to be that good of an idea.
Maybe someone ought to remind the NCAA that Elliott is just having a little fun. It may be a safety issue, but let’s try not to become the NFL in the way that we control players actually being able to have fun.
