After just one week, Penn State running back Saquon Barkley has jumped ahead of Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield in the USA TODAY Network Heisman Trophy survey — but not by much. Barkley, after gaining 358 total yards and scoring a touchdown in the Nittany Lions’ last-second victory at Iowa on Saturday, leads the survey of editors and reporters who work for properties owned by Gannett by two points. Mayfield was 13 of 19 for 283 yards and three touchdowns in a win against Baylor.
It’s just the first USA TODAY Network Heisman Trophy of the season, but right now the favorites are from the state of Oklahoma. Sooners QB Baker Mayfield is far and above the early leader taking 18 of 19 first-place nods from reporters and editors who work for properties own by Gannett, parent company of USA TODAY. The two will face each other in the state’s annual Bedlam rivalry game at Oklahoma State in Stillwater. If last year’s survey is any indication, then Mayfield is in a great spot.
MINNEAPOLIS — P.J. Fleck, at 36 the second-youngest head football coach at a Power Five school, brought his “row the boat” enthusiasm and intensity to a Minnesota program that last tasted a Big Ten title in 1967. Already, he has done something the last six Gophers’ coaches could not do — win his opener. And make no mistake Thursday night’s often-sluggish 17-7 victory against Buffalo was all about him.
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".
