The starting quarterbacks of this state’s two major-college football programs have come to a decision on whether or not to enter the 2018 NFL draft.One made a prudent decision.One whiffed.West Virginia’s Will Grier decided in December to return for his senior year, and all parties concerned will benefit. Grier will avoid jostling with a loaded quarterback class in the draft and throw to David Sills for another 200 touchdowns.
Dan D’Antoni had to get creative in which of his Marshall players he puts on the floor, and he passed one test of such creativity.The Thundering Herd (12-5, 3-1 Conference USA) rode a 51-point second half Thursday in beating Charlotte 91-83. At the end of the contest, the coach put five guards on the floor — appropriate with shot-blocker Ajdin Penava and leaper Darius George out.“We had some different lineups,” D’Antoni said Friday. “I didn’t even recognize them.
OK, the season is underway. Rice beat Charlotte, but the 49ers still won one. And oh, by the way, Western Kentucky is pretty good. I use RPIs as a starting point in listing “quality wins,” “good losses” and “bad losses.” I will begin with wins over top-150 teams and close losses to top-125 teams and go from there, adding and deleting as it makes sense. Losses to over-200 teams are listed, perhaps with mitigating comments, and routs to anybody can be listed. Teams are not ranked by RPI.
Some news: Ajdin Penava and Darius George both practicing today. Penava is expected back, but coach is expressing caution. George's comeback this week is not ruled out. He'll get that x-rayed again on Thursday.
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".
