STARKVILLE – It took more than a little effort for Starkville to claim the Little Egg. The No. 10 Yellowjackets beat Oxford 28-21 Friday in double overtime, with KJ Lawrence’s 4-yard touchdown run in the second overtime the game-winner. “At the end, we did our job, protect our house. I’m proud of our guys,” Starkville coach Chris Jones said. “You’ve got to stay the course.”The Yellowjackets (2-0) scored at the halftime buzzer, a hail mary from Malik Brown to Rufus Harvey for a 14-0 lead.
TUPELO – Tupelo didn’t wait long to separate itself from a fellow member of the state’s Super 10. The No. 4 Golden Wave answered every Meridian punch in the season opener en route to a 35-24 win over No. 3 Meridian at Renasant Field. Tupelo (1-0) got a touchdown from its defense before the offense got to play when Bryant Morgan fell on a bobbled punt snap for the first score of the year. Shut out 14-0 in the first half, Meridian made things interesting in the second half, once pulling within a point.
The start of football practice in small towns across Mississippi creates a buzz. In Ecru, a small town in Pontotoc County, Monday’s official opening of the 2017 prep season ended with anything but excitement. North Pontotoc learned Monday night of the death of Ty Rayford, a 6-foot-5, 330-pound senior tackle beginning his final season for the Vikings. “I didn’t really believe it. I don’t believe it now,” said former teammate Brooks Shannon, now a wide receiver at West Georgia. “I grew up around him.
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".
