You make decisions. You hope they work. You expect them to work. And then you have to live with the outcome. But hey, you can write columns in hindsight. In fact, that’s pretty much all we do, baby. And in hindsight, quite obviously, Andrew Karp should’ve started Florida State’s elimination game against LSU on Wednesday night at the College World Series. Instead it was Cole Sands who got the nod.
OMAHA When you think about it, who better to write a story about Drew Mendoza's spectacular hair than your favorite bald columnist? Because I have the proper perspective. I used to have hair. Lots of it. In my mid 20s though it started falling out. By the time I was 30 my bald spot had basically become a bald head. I hung on as long as I could, but eventually - like so many less-fortunate men across this great land - I had to give up the dream and just shave it completely. I had no other choice.
OMAHA - With the season on the line, the Florida State offense did what it does best. It walked. And walked. And walked. Two in particular were the most crucial in the Seminoles' 6-4 comeback win over Cal State Fullerton on Monday in the first elimination game of the 2017 College World Series. With the victory, Florida State improved to 1-0 in Omaha this year when it doesn't commit three errors on one play.
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".
