I picked up a copy of Kevin Cramer’s Universe Point and was prepared to not like the book. It looked like just another one of a number of ultimate-related books to hit the market in the past six months and I was fully expecting it to be, well, amateurish. I mean, really, Universe Point? Isn’t that just an over-used ultimate-related name to slap onto a book?
This is Part II of our stats-based look at Arkansas’ 9 Power Five opponents for 2017. (See Part I here.) To look at defense, I decided to who is bringing back the most sacks per game and the most interceptions per game. There are some similarities to our Rushing and Passing chart. TCU is bringing back a lot of production. South Carolina is not bringing back much. Overall, three teams finished higher than Arkansas on both charts: Alabama, TCU, and LSU.
SEC Media Days has come and gone, so it’s now socially acceptable to talk about the 2017 football season. The media was optimistic about the Hogs, picking them 4th in the West. Let’s take a closer look at what Arkansas’ 2017 opponents are bringing back. This is a simple total offense graph showing how much rushing and passing yards are coming back for each of Arkansas’ Power 5 opponents. Let’s break it down. Alabama returns more than 400 rushing and passing yards per game, which just isn’t fair.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
