NEW ORLEANS — The truth behind any conference’s football media day is no one has more fun than the players. While coaches were peppered with questions by the media, the select few who got the nod to represent their teammates and schools spent most of the day behind a PlayStation controller, sifting through Snapchat filters, and most importantly, guarding the buffet line. “I can’t remember the last time I had a steak for breakfast but there it was,” said Caleb Tucker, ULM’s senior defensive end.
NEW ORLEANS -- ULM defensive coordinator Mike Collins swore he didn’t draw the short straw. Nonetheless, it fell to ULM’s assistant head coach to represent the Warhawks at Sun Belt Media Day on Monday in the absence of head coach Matt Viator, who wasn’t in attendance due to a family matter.
NEW ORLEANS -- Sun Belt commissioner Karl Benson joked during his annual SBC Media Day address that he’s no longer the goofy guy in the opulent yellow shirt singing the praises of his league. Part of that is true at least. Benson remains the pied piper of all things “Fun Belt,” and used his pulpit inside the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Monday to once again sing the praises of the conference.
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".
