The picture above shows Jordan Morgan, usually No. 52, wearing No. 30 and Trey Burke, usually No. 3, donning No. 12 for Michigan on Jan. 17 at Minnesota. Both players’ jerseys ripped in the game, forcing them to turn to emergency replacements.

Michigan hasn’t worn its blue road uniform since that game – until today at Wisconsin. Thing is, the uniform is last year’s version, the one without the faded spray paint design on the shorts and the dual stripes on the shoulder.

The reason?

A Michigan official said the team hasn’t gotten all of the replacements for the jerseys that ripped at Minnesota. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, because last year’s design is a better one.

Here’s a photo of the old uniform from Saturday’s loss at Wisconsin.
