When college football’s schedule looks underwhelming, it often gives us maximum crazy. This could end up being that week. There are no top-10 teams facing off. The only major rivalry game is Texas-Oklahoma. ABC’s primetime game is Utah-USC. On paper, that schedule is sub-optimal unless you’re a big fan of Texas or Oklahoma. But when has college football ever followed logic? Here are your studs and duds for Week 7.
The difference between college football and the NFL is like the difference between World Wars I and II. College football is trench warfare — it’s about attrition, resolve, staying put and outlasting everyone else. In the NFL, you can think in the long-term, fighting on multiple fronts. But the college game is about surviving from week-to-week. As the calendar flips to October, we’ll start to see a few more upsets as teams succumb to the grind. Here are college football’s studs and duds for Week 6.
The New York Giants offense had its best showing of the season — by far — against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 3. This was largely because head coach Ben McAdoo took steps to prevent the offensive line from mucking up the passing game. Mainly, that meant getting the ball out of Eli Manning’s hands as fast as possible. Quick throws means short routes: outs, curls, comebacks and so on. However, the Giants were especially dependent on one route in particular Sunday: the slant.
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".
