The play that gave South Carolina a last-gasp chance Saturday night went to a freshman receiver. OrTre Smith, at 6-foot-4 and 220 pounds and physically the largest wideout on the Gamecocks’ two-deep, hauled in a touchdown pass from quarterback Jake Bentley while falling out the back corner of the end zone. It wasn’t just Smith’s first career score, but his first career catch at the college level.
On second-and-2 with roughly 10 minutes to go in the third quarter, South Carolina running back Rico Dowdle took the handoff and was stopped for a gain of 1 yard. On third-and-1, A.J. Turner was halted for no gain. The Gamecocks went for it on fourth down, and again the call was to Turner, and again the rusher was taken down without making any progress at all. That series was emblematic of South Carolina’s 23-13 loss Saturday night to Kentucky, which beat the Gamecocks for a fourth straight time.
Is there an undefeated team in America that remains as much of an unknown as Mississippi State? Coach Dan Mullen’s squad certainly has taken care of business to this point, winning its first two games by a combined score of 106-21. But given that those romps have come over FCS Charleston Southern and Louisiana Tech — well, let’s just say the schedule so far makes it easy to have doubts about the Bulldogs.
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".
