EAST LANSING — Brian Lewerke’s phone has been buzzing more and more lately. After Michigan State’s 28-14 win over Western Michigan on Sept. 9, the 6-foot-3, 212-pound quarterback posted a picture of himself on Instagram rushing the ball in the win against the Broncos. In the comments, Notre Dame quarterback Brandon Wimbush left Lewerke some words of encouragement:“See you in a couple bro.
It has been 10 years since Mike Valenti’s voice crumbled as he demolished Michigan State’s football program in the wake of its meltdown loss in the rain to Notre Dame. “The Rant” has taken on legendary status among Spartan fans since it went viral nationally. Valenti rarely talks about it these days. On Friday, his WXYT 97.1-FM cohorts Jeff Riger and Evan Jankens convinced him to revisit it, then surprised the radio host on the air with a blast from his gravelly voice past.
EAST LANSING – They are moments ingrained in Michigan State and Notre Dame fans that only need a few words to evoke emotions. The Game of the Century. It’s a rivalry that spans 120 years and so much shared history beyond the field between the schools. And Saturday’s 79th meeting between the Spartans and Irish will be the last before it goes on hold, an under-the-lights primetime meeting in a series filled with memories and misery.
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".
