This bizarre night for Air Force included a hot start in monsoon-like conditions, a long weather delay and then a back-and-forth finish in an empty stadium against a ranked opponent. But in the end, it was a loss. And all those other factors melted away in the frustration of a 28-24 loss to No. 22 San Diego State at Falcon Stadium on Saturday night. “It sucks,” quarterback Arion Worthman said. “Losing’s tough, especially one like that.
Big-time college football is coming to the Colorado Springs area on Saturday. Will the response match it? As of around noon Friday, Air Force said 25,000 tickets were sold for Saturday’s 5 p.m. game against No. 22 San Diego State. Of course, that number can grow precipitously with walk-ups, but it would seem the Falcon Stadium capacity of 46,692 won’t be approached.
San Diego State basketball used to play to nearly empty arenas. From 1986 through 2000, as the sport was thriving, the Aztecs drew an average of 2,678 fans to their home games. Then Steve Fisher arrived, started dominating, and over the past five years Viejas Arena has rocked to more than 12,000 per home game. Wrong sport, true, but there’s a relevant lesson here: Even in a location with ample entertainment options, the people of San Diego will flock to Aztecs events if the conditions are right.
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".
