After more than a year's worth of delays and three NCAA notices of allegations, UNC-Chapel Hill has at last received its date to appear before the NCAA Committee on Infractions, which is the judge and jury in major NCAA investigations. UNC representatives will appear before the committee on Aug. 16 in Nashville, Tenn.
UNC Chapel Hill men’s basketball coach Roy Williams and other university officials strongly disputed a report by whistleblower Mary Willingham this week that says more than half of the academically at-risk athletes admitted to the university cannot read or write at a college level. Williams told reporters the report was unfair and untrue with regard to Willingham’s claims that one basketball player was illiterate. “I don’t believe that’s true,” Williams said. “It’s totally unfair.
North Carolina linebacker Tyrell Tomlin is academically ineligible for the fall semester and is no longer enrolled in classes, the school announced on Tuesday. Tomlin, who appeared in 10 games last year during his freshman season, entered the preseason listed as a backup on the depth chart at the strong-side linebacker position. He had been expected to compete for significant playing time, and could have entered the season as a primary reserve at outside linebacker.
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".
