Being patient has absolutely paid dividends for Brock Purdy. A quarterback from Perry High in Gilbert, Ariz., Purdy put up a huge senior season, but his recruiting did not take off, so he opted to wait to sign until February instead of the early December period. Purdy got an offer from Boise State late last month and made the Broncos his first official visit this past weekend.
Nick Cunningham was great on the flat track at Boise State, but where he’s truly excelled is on the icy, speedy bobsled runs. On Monday, Cunningham was selected for the third time to the U.S Olympic team in the bobsled, as he will pilot one of the three USA sleds in the two-man and four-man competitions in South Korea. The bobsled will be held Feb. 18-25. One of Cunningham’s teammates on the four-man sled, Sam Michener, is a University of Idaho graduate.
The first-ever early signing period for football recruits couldn’t have worked better for Boise State, minus one glaring omission — a high school quarterback. Between Dec. 20 and 22, the Broncos signed 20 players, including junior college quarterback Jaylon Henderson. But when high school prospect Zach Wilson, committed since June, opted to pursue other options Dec. 13, Boise State was forced to start all over again.
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".
