Now we can all talk about what we’ve all been talking about anyway. Now we can dispense with the loser-takes-paycheck game and proceed to the winner-takes-all game between Alabama and Auburn. We can compare scores. Auburn will lead with Mississippi State while Alabama will counter with LSU and, you better believe, Mercer, a 24-10 loser at AU in September. There might even be an Auburn fan that will compare Saturday’s win over Louisiana-Monroe to the Crimson Tide’s 2007 loss to the Warhawks.
There might have been some magic, or at least some Superball DNA, in those baseballs that kept flying out of Minute Maid Park in Houston on Sunday night. But at least a couple of times during the record-setting home run barrage, the cause was simply a pitcher who was worn down by a long season trying to get a straight fastball past one or another of the sport’s best hitters — with predictable results.
University of Alabama men’s basketball coach Avery Johnson has received “no new information” into events that led to the resignation of former UA associate athletics director Kobie Baker. Johnson said Thursday that all players are eligible “at this point,” although an internal investigation is ongoing and will likely continue until there is more certainty about the direction of an FBI investigation that has resulted in 10 arrests.
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".
