The Conway Wampus Cats are in the 7A state semifinals — by George. Michael George, well rested after sitting out last week with an ankle injury, rushed for 281 yards on 39 carries and three touchdowns Thursday night to lead the Cats (9-3) to a 48-40 victory over Bentonville West at Bentonville. Conway, which defeated Bentonville and Bentonville West this season, will play either North Little Rock or Fort Smith Northside in next week’s semifinal on the home field of the highest seeded team.
The short of it is clear. The “Long” of it … hmmm. Simply, Jeff Long is out as director of athletics at the University of Arkansas. Rumblings of that began getting credence after Long was summoned to a Board of Trustees meeting last week but was not invited into a 3 1/2 hour executive session. The reasons for the dismissal probably had layers — giving coach Bret Bielema a lucrative buyout after a so-so season and a victory over a “soer-so” Texas team in the Texas Bowl.
University of Central Arkansas men’s soccer coach Ross Duncan was not surprised by the Missouri Valley Conference champion Bears’ pairing for the first round of the 38-team NCAA playoffs. UCA (8-10-1), which defeated Bradley on penalty kicks and Missouri State in overtime for the MVC title Sunday, will take on American Athletic Conference champion SMU (15-2-1) in a regional first-round game Thursday in Dallas. “That’s who we thought we would get,” said Duncan after the selection show Monday.
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".
