Steve Owens won the 1969 Heisman Trophy and hired an OU graduate as his agent. Baker Mayfield won the 2017 Heisman Trophy and did the same. Fifty years after he entered the sports representation business, 80-year-old Jack Mills remains on the job, with his Boulder, Colorado-based Ascent Sports Management. Pretty good spread between Heisman earnings, too. Mills in 1969 had four clients who became first-round draft picks — Colorado's Bobby Anderson and Sooners Owens, Steve Zabel and Jim Files.
Well, that was a disconcerting week for Big 12 basketball. Some teams had some great victories. But the league as a whole came away from the week with a hollow feeling. The conference race is over, in spirit if not in truth, and the league soon realized that its national dominance was a mirage. Four teams in the top 10? Sorry. Short-lived, and not because they were knocking each other off. OU’s back-to-back road losses at Kansas State and OSU removed the Sooners from national phenomenon.
STILLWATER — Trae Young motioned for a traveling call while Mitchell Solomon had the ball on the ground and Tavarius Shine had a beat on the basket. Young had done about everything else in scoring 48 points, the most ever in a Bedlam game, so why not try officiating, too? While Young petitioned the referee, Solomon flipped the ball to a streaking Tavarius Shine, who dunked the ball and restored hope to the Cowboys in the final minute of regulation.
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".
