The idea began as a quick way for Matt Wyatt to communicate with Mississippi State fans on YouTube. The former Bulldog quarterback in the late 1990s is now a broadcaster who would make the occasional video breakdown for viewers. When the season ended, the Prattville product had some dead air to fill. So he branched out. Why not examine each of the 77 passes Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa threw last season?
This happened fast for Casey Nelson in late January. A hasty promotion for Alabama's SGA executive vice president followed the resignation of president Jared Hunter after a DUI arrest. Swearing to uphold the duties of office came with a twist for the Tuscaloosa native. A friend, Anna Gerhardt, broke the news to Nelson after that Jan. 23 swearing in ceremony. "You realize you're going to have to sing the Auburn fight song now, right?" Gerhardt asked. "Do what?" Nelson responded.
Of Alabama's six wins in the opening two weekends, five came by the run-rule. The biggest test, however, came Sunday and it led to the No. 9 Crimson Tide's first loss of 2018. No. 11 Baylor scored twice in the first inning to hand Alabama its first loss, 2-1 in the Black and Gold Invitational hosted by Southern Miss. The Tide dropped to 6-1 while the Bears moved to 7-0. Alexis Osorio (2-1) got the complete-game loss with five strikeouts.
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".
