— This might be the best Duke basketball team I’ve ever seen. That’s such a dangerous way to open because commenters are probably skipping to the bottom already to post their “Blasphemy!” rebuttals or “would be the the biggest choke ever if they don’t win” barbs depending on rooting interest, but here’s a pretty solid disclaimer for both of you: March is weird, and the best teams don’t always win.
You must enter the characters with black color that stand out from the other characters— November could have been bad for Duke. REALLY bad. After dropping a winnable game to Army in the beginning of the month, Duke’s best bet for a bowl game was to steal a win from either Georgia Tech or Wake Forest and hope that the chips fell into place for a 5-7 team to fill an empty bowl slot.
You must enter the characters with black color that stand out from the other characters— Ted Roof was responsible for just four wins as Duke’s head coach between 2004 and 2007. Might as well give him credit for Duke win number five this year as Roof’s Georgia Tech defense made it easy for the Blue Devils to discover, and stick with, their running game to end a pathetic six-game losing streak that was entirely avoidable and essentially wasted the entire season.
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".
