It’s about to get worse. America’s Team was actually down 3-0 at halftime, but for a third straight week, the Cowboys were blasted in the second half, losing a third straight game by 20-plus points. Owner Jerry Jones addressed the team in the locker room after the season took another step south. “I’m not getting into what I said at all,” he said. He doesn’t have to. His Cowboys are cooked.
American-Statesman columnists Kirk Bohls and Cedric Golden address 10 hot-button topics about Texas, the Big 12 and national college football:1. Will a desperate Texas Tech have enough to overcome Texas? Bohls: Nope. I’m not going to say the Red Raiders have mailed it in, but they’re bringing postage stamps. The normallyreliable Tech offense didn’t show up against TCU. Texas, meanwhile, is relaxed and feeling slightly empowered as a bowl team and will be emotional on senior night in a 38-17 victory.
It’s a huge week for Jerry Jones and not because he’ll be hosting 100,000 of his closest friends and supporters at his billion-dollar palace on Thanksgiving. To the contrary, it’s because Thursday is the first day of the rest of his professional life. More to the point, it’s a chance to change his recent course of action. The Dallas Cowboys owner has arrived at a nice little fork in life’s road, and he has a choice to make.
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".
