Was "budget cut" really the reason for UP's uniform misprint?
The game between the UP Fighting Maroons and the De La Salle Green Archers took a strange turn in the third quarter over uniform issues.
Apparently, there is a 3x1-inch Oblation logo on the leftside of the UP shorts, Maroon Pio Longa's shorts had the logo on the right side.
On the LEFT side of the UP shorts, there's a 3x1 inch Oblation logo. For Longa, it was on the RIGHT side. Someone on DLSU bench spotted it.— Nikko Ramos (@NikkoRMS) November 11, 2015
Apparently there's an Oblation logo on Asilum & Longa's shorts that arent on the others'. Rule says technical foul if jersey is "unofficial"— Nikko Ramos (@NikkoRMS) November 11, 2015
A technical foul was called due to the infraction as the Fighting Maroons were in the middle of a 20-4 run to come back against the Green Archers.
Naturally, social media went crazy for the stramge delay in the game.
The Oblation statue has sinced apologized for killing UP's momentum.

And "budget cuts" may be the reason for the jersey error.
