Maybe they found something in the end. That's the hope at least, as the Huskers ran the ball on 32 of 45 plays in the second half in the 27-17 win over Rutgers. It wasn't what'd you'd classify as dominant exactly. Nebraska actually averaged more yards per carry (5.0) in the first half than the second (3.8). But offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf saw some encouraging things. He saw some potential identity runs the team could go back to. "We did.
Ever set your alarm for, like, 6:45, and then you wake up and there's a moment of hope that it's going to read 2:57 or something? And, geez, that'd be about as good as seeing your favorite football team run for 322 yards in a game or just knock the living tar out of Frank Costa. But instead it's, like, 6:32, and, oh yeah, it's Tuesday, and you have an hour-long meeting that morning that's just going to be a bunch of people talking in circles.
Maybe it's a strange deal after a week like this that Willie Nelson and a red-headed stranger come to mind, but they do. They came up in a story Mike Riley was sharing in his office 2 1/2 years ago — the story about growing up as the son of a coach. His late father, Bud Riley, was a man who coached football in Idaho, and in Corvallis for Oregon State, and on four different dots on the map for four different teams in the CFL. Mike's story from 2 1/2 years ago was about the camaraderie of coaching.
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".
