Dino Babers isn’t trying to slight Ford Pintos.He had one in high school. A baby-blue hatchback that from all accounts sounds like it was a pretty sweet ride.But his up-tempo, no-huddle offense, and he says this lovingly, isn’t a Ford Pinto. His quarterback is expected to be able to handle a racing car.“And when we go around corners, the tires need to sing, and that's the way we handle our offense,” the Syracuse coach said.
Three Hokies and two Cavaliers were selected to the media’s preseason All-ACC football team Wednesday.Virginia Tech wide receiver Cam Phillips, offensive guard Wyatt Teller and linebacker Tremaine Edmunds all made the team, which was voted on at last week’s ACC Kickoff in Charlotte, in addition to Virginia linebacker Micah Kiser and safety Quin Blanding.Defending champion Clemson led the league in preseason selections with five, followed by Miami with four.
The ACC football media days can be a drag without the occasional off-beat question.So when a reporter asked Clemson’s Christian Wilkins what teammate he wants by his side if he gets in a scuffle, the 6-foot-4, 310-pound defensive tackle, who’s a safe bet to hold his own without any assistance, perked up and answered immediately.“Big Dex,” Wilkins said, referring to fellow defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence, he of the 6-foot-5, 340-pound frame. “The scuffle’s over if he’s there.
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".
