Good afternoon (for most of you) fans! This is a 10:30 a.m. contest here, which may be the earliest Marshall has played. Had the Thundering Herd made the Conference USA tournament finals in El Paso, those were 9:30 contests. I personally don’t mind it, and I don’t think either team will, either. Myself, I pushed myself to stay up to 11 last night.
When Marshall and coach Dan D’Antoni addressed the media after the Thundering Herd win over Wichita State, he fielded the inevitable question about a rematch Sunday with West Virginia.At that point, it was a possible rematch, as the Mountaineers and Murray State had not tipped off yet, so the question was premature. For the live-in-the-moment D’Antoni, it was too early to ponder.“Hell, I’m still celebrating this one,” he said. “You’re off on the other one? I have no idea.
Dan D’Antoni’s Herd has made it to San Diego, as have I. Don’t get too envious of the weather, for we had showers here. I will be under the tent until 3 local, so I won’t be able to tell you if the sun sneaks out or not. If you follow my Twitter feed, you saw my picture of a “Marijuana Delivered” billboard. Mitch Vingle, here as our WVU beat writer, saw a chap on the side of the street here on the San Diego State campus with a sign, “Cannabis, 21 and up.”OK, enough weed.
Here working during the College of Charleston-Auburn game. Cougars are up by 2 and the home folks have adopted them. I guess that happened today with Marshall, but I had plenty of noise in my ear with Herd fans and band. Good noise, though.
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".
