Things are about to get real in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Clemson Tigers still hold the top spot in the league after shaking off a pesky effort by the Boston College on Saturday, but they have a challenger to the throne. Virginia Tech, who also sits at 4-0, hosts the Tigers in Blacksburg this week. Hat tip to the schedule makers for that ACC crossover matchup.
Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva leads the NFL in jersey sales following a weekend full of protests by players during the national anthem. The former Fort Drum soldier and Steelers offensive lineman broke ranks with his teammates and stood alone in the tunnel as the national anthem played before Pittsburgh played the Chicago Bears. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said on Sunday his team would remain in the locker room during the anthem.
Dino Babers played the right cords after Syracuse's 35-26 loss to LSU. It was not a moral victory. It was not a step forward for his program in the first game of the forecasted window of improvement in year two under Babers, between games four through six. It was simply a lost opportunity to grab a signature win and end a 48-game winning streak for LSU against non-conference opponents at Tiger Stadium.
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".
