North Texas went to work this week when it came to handling third downs on both offense and defense. That work paid big dividends for the Mean Green in a 46-43 win against UAB in both teams' Conference USA opener on Saturday at Apogee Stadium. UNT converted 12 of its 19 third downs while limiting UAB to six conversions on its 13 attempts. Those totals marked a dramatic improvement from the Mean Green's loss to Iowa last week.
All coaches have pet sayings they recite over and over. Those little nuggets of advice can get monotonous at times, but often hold some truth coaches are trying to drill into their players. Anyone ever hear North Texas coach Seth Littrell talk about overcoming adversity? Those who have been paying attention have. After the Mean Green's 46-43 nail-biter of a win over UAB on Saturday night at Apogee Stadium, it was apparent Littrell's players took what he has been saying to heart. Let's be honest.
It's Sunday night and time for the leftovers, that point where we pick back through the events of the weekend, reheat the good stuff -- and some of the bad -- while hopefully putting it all in perspective. The big news of the weekend was North Texas' 46-43 win over UAB in its Conference USA opener. We went over what transpired in the last day or so. Here is a link back to the UNT section of the DRC's website, where the game story, notes and accompanying story are up.
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".
