We're here in Starkville as Ole Miss and Mississippi State play in the 2017 Egg Bowl. No. 14 MSU looks to finish its season 9-3, while Ole Miss hopes to end the year 6-6 with bragging rights. 5:12 p.m.: We have our first Egg Bowl scuffle. It appeared some Mississippi State players were angered Ole Miss players were on their side during warm ups. It was nothing more than some shoving and trash talking, but tensions are already high here in Starkville.
STARKVILLE — It was always building up to Thursday night for Keytaon Thompson, even if Mississippi State didn’t know it. It was a year full of questions and stories about this freshman backup quarterback with braces from New Orleans — how he was developing, how he was learning from Nick Fitzgerald and how it was all about getting him ready to be the next Mississippi State quarterback. He was labeled as the future. There were debates about whether he should have been redshirted.
With the Egg Bowl returning to Thanksgiving this year for the first time since 2013, there are different sides to why it might and might not work out. It's a holiday, and people have different views on what that day should be for. Some have their traditions and dinners and don't want the Egg Bowl interfering with that. Some embrace the combination. “There’s other people who say, ‘You know what? There’s nothing better than football on Thanksgiving,'" Ole Miss athletic director Ross Bjork 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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
