Holy crap. Akron beat Ohio. That was three days ago and we’re still in shock over this. Ohio had a clear path to Detroit after its 28-point beatdown on Toledo and only had one job for the next two weeks: Don’t screw up. Welp, they did. And for that, we got to appreciate the hell out of Kato Nelson. And for some reason, we found ourselves in a “future of Bowling Green” rabbit hole. Look, it’s been a weird month.

Akron pulled off one heck of an upset over Ohio Tuesday night, 37–34. With the win, Akron became bowl eligible, has a 6–5 record and is a win over Kent State away from going to the MAC championship game. Ohio drops to 8–3 overall and is going to do some scoreboard watching next week. Here’s a few stats from the MAC East-deciding game (let’s just call it that) that jumped out at me:The Zips were penalized 16 times while Ohio was penalized twice.
Pulling into the final two weeks of the regular season (already?! ), Alex and Coffin prepare for Week 12’s MACtion. Unfortunately, a lot of these games lost some of their luster over the last couple of weeks, like: Western Michigan at Northern Illinois, Eastern Michigan at Miami and Ohio at Akron. Is there still room for those games to be entertaining? Absolutely. But these games don’t have the shine that they could’ve had, like we probably expected at the beginning of the year.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
