STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Long before he was working at multiple linebacker spots for the Nittany Lions, sophomore Cam Brown had to anchor the offensive line. The now 6-5, 225 pounder played center for his youth team back home in Maryland and that meant enduring the occasional hits from his teammate, then nose guard Lorenzo Harrison. "He used to play nose guard sometimes because he’s the same size that he was in Little League," Brown said of the Terrapins' running back.
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Linebacker Manny Bowen hasn't suited up for the past two games due of a violation of team rules and he won't play this weekend either in the regular season finale, James Franklin said Tuesday. Bowen, who was also suspended for last year's Rose Bowl game, was replaced in the starting lineup at Will linebacker by senior Brandon Smith the past two weeks. It's unclear if Bowen will be available for the bowl game.
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead delivered more than just the game plan to the Nittany Lions when he met with the players following the win against Rutgers. "Coach (Matt) Limegrover and mostly coach Moorhead proposed a challenge to us as far as approaching practice with a lot more physical mentality," offensive tackle Chasz Wright said on Tuesday.
Franklin: "I see more teams that get caught up in the hype. ... You can make the same argument about us that there were a couple games that slipped through our fingers." Said he's not sure if hype was factor in PSU's losses or not.
James Franklin is on his radio show tonight. Fan asks him about starters skipping bowl games and if post-season awards should be delayed until after bowl games. Franklin said Lions always preach team first.
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".
