Memphis junior running back Patrick Taylor said he woke up hyper Saturday morning, anxious to get back on the field. Drew Kyser was also excited but the senior offensive lineman had a different perspective on being happy the Tigers finally began spring practice. "What else do you have to look forward to?" Kyser said, "This is my last first spring practice so I was pumped up about it and fired up."
On the eve of the start spring practice, Memphis' 10-win season could have felt like a distant memory given the changes within the football program. Riley Ferguson and Anthony Miller, one of the nation's top quarterback-wide receiver duos, are now preparing for the NFL along with Genard Avery. Five new assistants have joined coach Mike Norvell's staff.
We've saved the best for last and without a doubt, the biggest question when spring practice begins Saturday for Memphis will be who takes the lead on replacing Riley Ferguson at quarterback. Will it be last year's backup David Moore? Is it graduate transfer Brady White? How healthy is White after his foot injury? Does Brady Davis have a shot to shake things up? All those questions may not be answered until the fall, but the quartet of candidates will make it an interesting race.
@CBConnolly They trip over it in HS way more because its kids and sportsmanship. Couldn’t tell you how many football games or hoop games outraged people back home. College/pros I don’t mind running up the score. HS….there’s ways to be responsible but if 1 team ain’t good, they ain’t good
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".
