MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — March Madness is upon us, and if you’re like nearly every other breathing American, you’re gonna fill out a bracket. And if you wanna win your office pool, listen up. The best way to pick a winner… is to just close your eyes and throw darts on a map. Let’s take you through round by round. First, it helps to know how often upsets actually happen. Don’t pick any 16s or 15s… A 16’s never won a game and only four 15s have the past decade.
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It’s a big day in college sports — Selection Sunday — but here’s a statistic that probably never even crossed your mind: 100 percent of the men in the men’s basketball tournament are coached by men. That’s a luxury nowhere near true for women. In fact, across all college sports, it’s true for only four out of 10 women. But there’s a woman at the University of Minnesota trying to change that.
EAGAN, Minn. (WCCO) — Just in time for the start of free agency, the Vikings’ sparkling new headquarters in Eagan is finished and open for business. The team officially moved in on Monday, and Friday, gave members of the media a tour for an inside look. The Vikings’ brand new headquarters in Eagan, the Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center, is more than double the square footage of their old headquarters, Winter Park in Eden Prairie.

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".
