When they sit around 10, 20, even 30 years from now, and they talk about college football in their enclaves because it always beats talking about family gossip, might they remember this innocuous little weekend in late September 2017? So many of them might.
Michigan at Purdue is interesting, which is interesting, and also an emblem of Big Ten football regeneration. If the Big Ten could get Michigan at Purdue to be interesting, then it really, really must have emerged from its long lull of 2007-13, when it slipped from relevance and mumbled in the national background.Energy, of course, has revisited the Big Ten. Witness its four New Year’s Six bowl berths last year, and nine across the last three years.
The fresh idea of Oklahoma State as a dazzling blockbuster capable of upending the natural order of college football went into the alleged autumn of 90-degree temperatures on Saturday and then spent the hours fizzling. As it did, a cobwebbed old idea resurfaced. Remember that crafty old schemer, Mr. Patterson from TCU? The one standing over there so long (17 seasons) he’s practically part of the Fort Worth topography? Well, this Gary Patterson has seen some gaudy offenses in his 57 years.
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".
