When we look back, what’s the first thing we think about: the high times or the moment they all ended? Imagining an alternate universe in which everything goes right for your team isn’t just a part of loving a team. It’s fundamental to the entire experience. The things we have to daydream away are endless: injuries, questionable penalties or spots, uninspired play calling or bad clock management, coaches or players getting into trouble and missing action, freak plays, etc., etc.
As we enter our 10th college football season together hosting and producing the show, we decided to take a trip down memory lane to outline and explain the history of The Solid Verbal. Among many others, we broach the following subjects and attempt to answer the following questions:• How did we meet? When did we actually meet? • Since it was such a new medium when we were starting out, did we actually know how to podcast?
On our latest scheme tangent/celebration, we welcome on Cole Cubelic, analyst for the SEC Network (and former Auburn OL), onto the show to deep dive line play in 2017, both in the SEC and beyond. Topics and questions include:• Which line position, offensive or defensive, is particularly strong in the SEC this year? • Which line group nationally, isn't necessarily the most talented, but the best built for what that team is trying to do?
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".
