Which Florida State players are particularly essential to the Seminoles’ success this season? Weighing that question, Noles247 composes a list of FSU’s 30 Most Important Players for 2017 ahead of preseason camp. Our countdown is at No. 14 as we take a look at EDGE Jacob Pugh. First, here is how we assembled our list of FSU’s 30 Most Important Players: We tried to blend overall talent and projected contribution in 2017 with how vital a player’s success is to the team’s success.
Florida State’s Kyle Meyers had the difficult task of defending the slot as a rookie, but he did more than hold his own. Working as a nickel corner (or “Star” as it is called in FSU’s scheme) presents a litany of issues because the position is closer to the line of scrimmage, so players lining up there are prone to seeing more action vs. the run and the pass. Meyers began working at Star regularly midway through the season and quietly played a role in FSU’s defensive turnaround.
Cook, who was in Tallahassee on Tuesday to support FSU’s Lift for Life charity event, believes Akers is well equipped to quickly adjust to the game at the college level. Akers is a five-star freshman who is expected to push for immediate playing time this season as the Seminoles search for viable options to replace Cook, FSU’s all-time leading rusher and a rookie for the Minnesota Vikings. “I visited with him in spring football,” Cook 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 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".
