(Photo by Justin K. Aller/Getty Images)Entering the rematch between Oklahoma and Texas, the Sooners knew strategic adjustments were going to be made. However, they also decided to change their uniforms for this game as well, and clearly those watching the Big-12 Championship aren’t thrilled about it.Instead of using its regular home jerseys, Oklahoma decided to go with the ‘Rough Rider’ alternate uniforms.Well, it’s not sitting well with the audience, and they are now criticizing the Sooners for this decision on Twitter. Even Chris Vannini of The Athletic chimed in on the conversation.Man, Oklahoma. You’ve got one of the cleanest road uniforms in CFB, iconic. The alternate stuff is disappointing.— Chris Vannini (@ChrisVannini) December 1, 2018To be completely honest, it’s quite surprising that many people are furious over the Sooners’ uniforms. Besides, they are 4-0 when wearing these alternates.However, an undefeated record in these jerseys won’t stop fans from trolling Oklahoma.Oklahoma in their alternate uniforms vs Texas pic.twitter.com/ykex4iVTbl— Darren (@djohn90) December 1, 2018There are no lines that won’t be crossed by football fans.These Oklahoma uniforms are sooooo ugly.

SecretaryGeneral Sudan agree to speed up deployment of peacekeeping force

30 January 2008Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir have agreed on the need to accelerate the deployment of the hybrid United Nations-African Union peacekeeping mission (UNAMID) to the war-wracked Darfur region and to finalize the status-of-forces agreement for the new missions. During a 90-minute meeting in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where Mr. Ban will address the AU summit tomorrow, Mr. Ban and Mr. al-Bashir discussed the situation in Darfur, where UNAMID is trying to quell deadly violence and human rights violations and bring a measure of stability.UNAMID took over from an earlier AU mission to Darfur and at full deployment it is expected to have about 26,000 troops and police officers.Mr. Ban stressed to the Sudanese President the importance of engaging with all the parties in Darfur, where at least 200,000 people have been killed since 2003 and 2.2 million others have been displaced from their homes because of fighting between rebels, Government forces and allied militia groups known as the Janjaweed.He also urged Mr. al-Bashir to move forward on the implementation of the commitments contained in the comprehensive peace agreement (CPA), a 2005 pact ending the separate civil war between northern and southern Sudan.Earlier, the Secretary-General held a working lunch with AU Chairperson Alpha Oumar Konaré in which they discussed the situation in Darfur and the need to make progress on the dialogue between the various parties in the arid and impoverished region.The two men also talked about the latest developments between Sudan and its neighbour Chad and on the most recent progress with the CPA.Later today, Mr. Ban was due to meet separately with three African presidents: John Kufour of Ghana, Omar Bongo of Gabon and Yoweri Museveni of Uganda.In a related development, this week Mr. Ban has sent a letter to the President of the Security Council to inform him that he has appointed Patrick Schneider of Germany to serve on the Panel of Experts that helps to monitor Darfur sanctions.Mr. Schneider’s appointment, through 15 October this year, places the Panel at its full strength of five members. read more
