Old Dominion has lost four consecutive games, but that isn’t the longest slide the program has ever endured. In 2014, their first season at the Bowl Subdivision level, the Monarchs dropped five in a row. But here’s what makes this losing streak worse: Those four losses have come by a collective margin of 130 points. Or, on average, by 32.5 a game. Next for ODU? Defending Conference USA champion Western Kentucky. The Monarchs are 0-3 vs. the Hilltoppers and have never held them to fewer than 55 points.
Old Dominion and William and Mary both received verbal commitments to their men’s basketball programs on Monday. Both players announced their picks via Twitter. Chase Audige, a 6-foot-4 shooting guard from New York, will be joining the Tribe for the 2018-19 season. The Monarchs added 6-9 forward Joe Reece from St. Louis, who had reported offers from Cleveland State and Murray State. “I am excited that my journey is about to take off into the next level,” Reece tweeted.
When Steven Williams arrived at Old Dominion three months ago, it didn’t take the coaching staff long to realize he was the program’s quarterback of the future. But nobody could have predicted that future would begin in this season’s fourth game. Saturday afternoon at No. 13 Virginia Tech, Williams will become only the second quarterback in ODU’s nine seasons to start as a true freshman. He’ll be the Monarchs’ third QB1 in four games this season, but Wilder says it’s his show from now on.
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".
