Vanderbilt’s Luke Kornet has one question begging for an answer, heading into Thursday’s NBA Draft: Who wants me? Kornet has worked out for more than a dozen teams. Some undoubtedly liked him, while others may not have quite as much. But Kornet is not going to rack his brain trying to figure out which teams were impressed by his 3-point shooting or shot-blocking in a mobile 7-foot-1 frame. He will merely find out during the draft Thursday (6 p.m., ESPN).
Former Vanderbilt pitcher Kyle Wright has signed a professional contract with the Atlanta Braves, the team announced Friday. Wright, who some considered the top prospect available in the 2017 MLB Draft, was selected fifth overall by Atlanta on Monday night. He went 5-6 with a 3.40 ERA for the Commodores this season, striking out 121 batters in 103⅓ innings. “It’s just really special to be here,” Wright said during a team press conference Friday afternoon.
Vanderbilt football announced three transfers added to the roster on Wednesday. Michigan graduate transfer long-snapper Scott Sypniewski and junior college transfer offensive lineman Saige Young will be eligible immediately this season. Wide receiver Alex Stump, an Ohio State transfer, must sit out the 2017 season to fulfill NCAA transfer rules before playing in 2018. Sypniewski played in 36 games over three seasons as Michigan's long-snapper.
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".
