LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – It’s a strange thing to have to tell a kid who just finished his sophomore year of college, but the message University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino gave to Ray Spalding this past spring was an accurate one:Your time is running out. That’s the world that top-level college basketball players face when it comes to the first round of the NBA Draft. “If you reach your senior season, they want to know what’s wrong with you,” Pitino told me back in the spring.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – It was always going to have to be a team effort, this arena. In August of 2005, the first column I wrote (for The Courier-Journal) after the Louisville Arena Authority revealed the terms of its deal with the University of Louisville concluded with a quote from U of L trustee Jonathan Blue, who said, “I’m just glad that all the parties have come together” on the years-long effort to get an arena built.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Fresh off his historic Heisman Trophy winning season, University of Louisville junior quarterback Lamar Jackson was voted to repeat as Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year in a vote of league media. Jackson was the overwhelming choice among the 167 media members who voted last week during the league's annual ACC Kickoff media days, garnering 113 votes. Florida State's Deondre Francois was next with 23 votes.
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".
