Ezekiel first sported the look in 2014 during the Buckeyes’ national championship season by tucking his jersey into his football pads, revealing his toned abs and perplexing his opponents. The following season the NCAA banned the crop top look which Ezekiel scoffed and called the move, “silly.” In the 1980’s and 1990’s, many football players would wear “half-shirts” while playing and practicing as a form of function rather than style. It’s hot out there!
