The three biggest games of Week 3 were:Northern Illinois beat Nebraska, Toledo won the shootout over Tulsa and Chuck Martin had his worst coaching moment(s) for Miami to lose to Cincinnati. Non-conference play is winding down and we have a better grasp on these MAC teams than we did a few weeks ago. Alex and Justin talk about these things and some of the freshmen that are getting some quality minutes for Ball State on both sides of the ball.
Through three weeks of college football, the Mid-American Conference:The big news out of this week is that Northern Illinois’ defense put on a clinic at Nebraska and won 21–17. In the first quarter, Shawun Lurry and Jawaun Johnson both had interceptions returned for touchdowns to give their team the spark plug it needed to win. Of course, that’s going to reflect in our rankings. The Huskies are now 2–1 with its only loss coming in the form of a three-point loss to Boston College in the home opener.
This week we have one question and one question only. Which teams could come away with statement-making wins this weekend? Alex: It hurts me to say this, but Central Michigan has a good chance to make a statement this weekend. On the surface, a win on Saturday would be CMU’s second road win over a Power 5 school after forgetting how to tie its own shoes against Rhode Island, and a 3–0 record. It would also raise the expectations for this program this year tremendously.
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".
