TUSCALOOSA, Alabama -- Collin Sexton is a bit of a maniac on the court. He can't help it. As soon as he gets a ball in his hands, his every movement is infused with a simmering intensity.On a Tuesday night in mid-November, Sexton's alter ego, "Young Bull," has come out for Alabama's home opener against Lipscomb.There was no mistaking the 6-foot-3 freshman guard from Mableton, Georgia, as he lingered a few paces behind his teammates during pregame warm-ups, eyes focused and trained downward.
Baker Mayfield has won the Heisman Trophy.That’s nice and all, but what about next year?For everyone not still shouting “Boomer Sooner!” toward Oklahoma’s senior quarterback, it’s time to look toward who could join him on stage at the Heisman ceremony in 2018.For the sake of argument, let’s say that quarterbacks Josh Rosen, Sam Darnold and Lamar Jackson will turn pro. Throw in the draft-eligible running backs (Bryce Love, Saquon Barkley, Ronald Jones II, etc.) as well.
Put simply: Alabama coach Nick Saban does not go on national television late Saturday night to lobby for a spot in the College Football Playoff if he thinks it’s an easy decision for the selection committee to make.Normally, you can’t catch him saying a negative word about anyone else’s program, but there he was throwing shade at Ohio State when he told ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt on SportsCenter that they wouldn’t be talking if his team had lost a game by 30 points (see: the Buckeyes' 55-24 loss...
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".
