Pac-12 basketball is all noise and no signal, just a series of random events with no discernible pattern. The good teams don’t always look good. The bad teams don’t always look bad. Sometimes it’s hard to tell which is which. Take Oregon, for example. Through six games of league play, it’s hard to tell if the Ducks are a good team playing poorly or a bad team that occasionally masquerades as a good one. At times, the Ducks have looked capable of beating anybody in the Pac-12.
Basic napkin math says that, for a football player in the Power 5 conferences, the chances of getting picked in the NFL draft are roughly 1 in 10. At the FCS level, it’s more like 1 in 175. And coming from the NAIA, the odds are effectively zero. So what about someone who’s done all three? That’s something former Oregon linebacker Oshay Dunmore is trying to figure out.
As we ponder the future of South Eugene’s “Axemen” moniker, let’s take a minute to remember how things have changed for women’s sports in the past 50 years. When Karen Meats attended South Eugene in the 1960s, having a gender-neutral mascot was the last thing on anyone’s mind. Girls were more concerned with having things like uniforms, equipment and practice spaces. “In those days girls athletics weren’t very popular and weren’t very valued,” Meats said.
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".
