When ESPN's Adnan Virk used an ill-advised metaphor to talk about coach Charlie Strong's situation at Texas, the Twitter backlash was swift. Virk, who was hosting ESPN's College Scoreboard, told co-hosts Joey Galloway and Danny Kanell, “It's getting awfully tight right now, the noose around Charlie Strong's neck. Virk probably didn't think much of his choice of words as they flowed from his mouth and were somewhat disregarded by his co-hosts, but many took offense considering the historical connotations of nooses, especially for African-Americans.
