Syracuse, N.Y. -- Syracuse football coach Dino Babers acknowledged on Wednesday, that he's stolen a bit of recruiting wisdom from former Georgetown basketball coach John Thompson III through the years. "We try to recruit, the bigger, the better," Babers said. "I always believe in what John Thompson used to say about his recruits. He misses on kids. But if he misses on a kid, they're big. We try to do the same thing for football."
Syracuse's non-conference scheduled was formally completed on Tuesday, with the announcement of game times for the Orange's contests against St. Bonaventure and Eastern Michigan. Both games will tip-off at 7 p.m. The Eastern Michigan game will be televised by ESPN2, while the St. Bonaventure game will be carried by ACC Network Extra, the ACC's digital network. Only one game on SU's schedule still does not have a tip time. That game is SU's Feb. 24 visit to Duke.
Syracuse, N.Y. -- The easy part of the season is over, and the Syracuse football program navigated it with a disappointing 2-1 record, failing to build a significant cushion for itself against the minnows before joining the sharks. Still, Syracuse's win over Central Michigan nudged the Orange's bowl chances in the right direction and the lopsided margin left some optimism about the team's future performance.
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".
