Tuesday, news broke that former five-star recruit Byron Cowart is leaving the Auburn program. Cowart, out of Seffner (Fla.) Armwood, was an incredible physical specimen in high school. He looked like he was a decade older than some of his high school teammates. And while he always seemed to physically look better than he played, he was still a really good player, and coveted by all of the major programs in the Southeast.
Let’s empty the notebook from the games I watched on Saturday in Week 3 of college football. My main screen was on Clemson’s 47-21 win at Louisville. Clemson coming off an emotional game against Auburn, and going into Louisville and dominating was impressive. In Week 2, we saw Clemson’s offensive line struggle to do much of anything against the defensive line of Auburn. Auburn has the type of defensive line common of many teams that reach the College Football Playoff.
Hurricane Irma forced my evacuation from my home in Fort Myers, Fla. so I watched the Auburn at Clemson game from Orlando. Here’s what I saw as Clemson won, 14-6. Auburn QB Stidham has a lot of arm talent, but I was anxious to see how the Baylor transfer would handle pressure from elite defensive linemen who simply do not often play in the Big 12. Clemson has those defensive linemen in spades, with Dexter Lawrence, Clelin Ferrell, Christian Wilkins, Austin Bryant, and others.
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".
